BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Candy Coated Chaos by Charity B.

Candy Coated Chaos
Sweet Treats Trilogy
by Charity B.
Publication Date: February 15, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance



Being with Tavin is like eating those candies that start out sweet and then turn so sour, your eyes water. When she’s happy, her radiance is stunning, but her glow is dimmed by her dark secrets. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on her, sucking on that lollipop, that there was something unique about her. I was right in more ways than one, and while I don’t know the extent of suffering that her life entails, I’ll do whatever I need to, to convince her she can trust me. I just need to hang on to her long enough to do that.

When he wraps his arms around me, and his warmth makes me feel safe, it’s easy to pretend that this is real. I knew going out with him was a bad idea, I just never imagined it would go this far. It was only supposed to be one night. One night to feel like a normal girl. I didn’t plan for this and now, every day that passes puts us deeper in danger. All I can do is make the most of every moment with him, so when the time comes for this to end, then at least we’ll be left with beautiful memories.

Trigger Warning: This novel contains drug use, explicit sexual content, violence, and sensitive subject matter which may be triggering for some readers.



He hovers over me, his blond hair soft beneath my fingers as I brush it away from his face. His strong and gorgeous face. I touch his cheeks so softly I wonder if he feels it.
“Can’t we just enjoy this? The right now? I don’t want to think about anything past tonight.”
His eyebrows narrow as his jaw ticks and it’s like he thinks if he looks into my eyes deep enough, he’ll get the answers he thinks he wants.
“That’s what I’m talking about. Whenever you say stuff like that it feels like every moment with you could be my last. You have this way about you, as if you see something the rest of the world can’t. Sometimes you feel almost… magical.” He presses his forehead against mine and laces our fingers together before pulling our hands above our heads. “Please don’t disappear,” he whispers against my lips.

Sonja's Review

The cover for Candy Coated Chaos immediately grabbed my attention, but it wasn’t until I saw a post about it in one of my social media groups that I decided to give it a shot. I’m glad that I saw that post and that I took a chance on it because I really liked Candy Coated Chaos. It was unconventional and a little weird at times, but I enjoyed that — it was an excellent read. 

Much like the story is unconventional and a bit weird, so is Tavin — she’s definitely a one-of-a-kind heroine. She has her somewhat frustrating moments, but I could never really be angry at her for long or blame her for that. I don’t want to spoil anything about Tavin though, so I will just say give her a chance because she deserves it and while she certainly has flaws, she’s a little bit of wonderful. 

It wasn’t hard at all to love Alexander — he’s such a great hero. He has his fair share of not-so-good times too, but he has a good, big heart and he truly cares about Tavin. He’s sweet, thoughtful, protective, supportive and he wants what’s best for her. Alex is fun and serious and warm — he’s just awesome. 

Candy Coated Chaos was unique and frustrating and full of mystery and secrets that had my mind going around in circles. It kept me on my toes and thinking and guessing and wondering what we were going to find out next. It made my heart ache and pound and made me smile and laugh a lot too. I did enjoy reading this book and I will without a doubt read the whole trilogy! 

Candy Coated Chaos is the first book in the Sweet Treats trilogy, it’s told from Alex and Tavin’s POV, and I can’t wait to read book two!
