When Wren Hart returns to her sleepy little Midwest town after years on the road, she finds the last thing she’d ever expect—a reason to stay. And that reason has a hard body, a knowledge of vinyl, and a crooked smile that sends her reeling.

Preston is a gorgeous, mysterious man, whose life is ruled by routine and order. Yet somehow, he finds Wren and her wild ways captivating. While their relationship grows in a delicate dance of chaos and control, the danger Wren thought she'd left behind during her travels is inching ever closer…and just may destroy them both.


“Vining brings to life a cast of fantastic and realistic characters that will touch the hearts of many readers. Her slow burn romance will touch even those with the coldest hearts and the build-up and anticipation will leave you hanging by the edge of your seat. This book is very well written and touching.” –Lindsie G., Goodreads

“Wonderful storytelling that romantics will feel deep in their souls!” –Duanne B., Goodreads

Chaos and Control was a very well written book and I loved each character. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat, just waiting to see how things are going to turn out.  I look forward to reading more of Season's work.” –Catherine W., Goodreads

“I would highly recommend Chaos and Control by Season Vining.  It has been a while since I’ve been so engrossed in a book, and I haven’t read a story in such a beautifully constructed lyrical style for a long time.  Although Season is a new author to me, I will certainly be looking at her other titles.” –The Word Nerd Reviews

I absolutely loved this story.  Preston and Wren are simply perfectly imperfect together and their story is one of acceptance and unconditional love.” –Bette H., Goodreads

“WOW!!! I am absolutely in LOVE with this book!!! The characters are so loveable and interesting.  I could simply not get enough of Wren and Preston.” –Melissa R., Goodreads

Sometimes the place we run from is the only place we can run to when life is overwhelming. Sometimes a person finds just what they need when they least expect it.

** ARC provided by the author for an honest review **

Chaos and Control, the title really says it all. Season Vining’s latest is all about the perfect balance of both.

Wren is a wild one. She has spent the last few years on the road, but now she is home. She doesn’t have plans to stay in one place, bu ...more

Preston and Wren - two truly adoring characters. If a book was ever out to prove that opposites attract then it was this one. These two characters could not have been any more different and yet more perfect for each other.

I adored the way that Wren wormed herself into Preston's ordered life. She ne ...more

Reverend Hart's daughter was back, but Wren Hart didn't intend to stay. She was hoping to find a place to hide and seek solace in her sister, Bennie's place. But what or who greeted her was a pleasant surprise. Could mild-mannered, obsessive-compulsive gorgeous Preston be the reason she'd finally re ...more

This was one of my favorite reads from Season Vining! Wren and Preston were the perfect couple in this book. Wren's craziness really complimented Preston's personalty.

I’ll admit that when I first opened Chaos and Control by Season Vining I was expecting a bit of light fluff. I wasn’t even sure about it when I was given the opportunity to review it. I’d pegged it as one of those books that may be fun to read, but that was about it.

Boy was I wrong! The book’s descr ...more

This was such a beautiful book for so many different reasons. Season Vining treated Preston’s condition with respect and dignity. I loved how accepting of it Wren was - they really were perfect for each other.

I love the “opposites attract” trope, and this book was a fresh take on it. Wren is a flighty and free-spirited whirlwind, while Preston, who has OCD, is ruled by routine.

"Maybe we’re too different to be together— polar opposites attracted like magnets. He is an anchor to this place, weighing me dow

Chaos and Control is the first book that I've read by the talented & original Season Vining, and I very much LOVED it!
