This is my first Bella Jewel book and as I've predicted most of the casts from the previous series MC Sinners were present. I wish I know about their history. Now that all their children are all grown up, it seems like some are gonna be pair of with each other. For those who are familiar with them, you might enjoyed their connection and camaraderie.

This is the story of Ava, the MC president's daughter. She thought her life was safe and carefree under the MC protection, but when she was kidnapped and experience something traumatic, her life is never same again. What follow through is the continue downward spiral of her life.

Lucas was the detective who came upon her when she was all battered and bruised. His instinct is to protect this little fragile woman and help her seek justice despite her unwillingness to cooperate. He knew she is hiding the truth, more so after knowing her family background.

However, I do have some problem with the heroine, Ava. All that pain and desolation that she experience seems like something that she inflicted on herself. I'm not trying to make light of what she experience while at the hand of the kidnapper, but I feel that it doesn't warrant that kind of reaction from her. I wish the kidnapper did something more awful to her that make her this way. I can also never understand why she shunned her family. She got a great supportive parents and friends among the MC club, but all she did is lie to them and hide away. Why?? I wish I can understand this complicated woman.

As for Lucas, he is one yummy man. His past that was told in alternate chapters are painful for me. I wish the author will just give it all to me at once because by half way through I can already guess what is going to happen to his once happy family. 

Pandemonium is an intense, suspenseful and emotional read. Both the hero and heroine have such heavy baggage and deal with a painful past. Together they both find strength and solace in each other. I'm very interested in other side characters and I can't wait to read the next one. Hopefully I will feel more connected to the heroine as I did for Ava.
