3.5 out of 5 stars
The first book in A Series of Choices, Closure or Ammo, centered around the complexity and complications of love and relationships. The second installation has a more dangerous premise – drug trafficking. While Closure or Ammo was told from the perspective of Lana and Val, Money and Mayhem follows their love interests in the prior installment, Leo and Travis. In the novella, Leo and Travis deal not only with love and relationships but with the danger that comes with dealing with gangs and drug trafficking. Exploring the difficult concepts of right and wrong, loyalty, and greed, Money and Mayhem is an exciting and entertaining light erotic novella that is sure to keep readers interested.
While Money and Mayhem is more entertaining and exciting than the prior installment, Closure or Ammo, I have a few issues with the novella. I believe that the plot could have been fleshed out more and the female characters could have had more profound substantial characterization rather than just being pregnant or women that the male characters objectify and have sex with. Due to this, despite the fact that the novella is exciting and has a satisfying twist at the end, I must give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
