Too Complicated by Bethany Lopez

(Lewis Cousins, #2)
A Contemporary Romance

Add the book to Goodreads


Reardon Lewis is a small-town lawyer in Cherry Springs, the place where he and his cousins grew up. With the body of a Viking and the heart of a geek, Reardon is loyal to his family and indispensable to his community. The only thing missing in his life is love, and it just so happens that the one woman he has always wanted but could never have has just moved to Cherry Springs.

Chloe Zahn is a successful businesswoman, a city girl, and a single mom. The last thing she ever planned to do was move to a small town, but that’s the choice she’s made to bring her son closer to his dad. The only problem? The Lewis family and the obvious disdain they have for her.

The more time Reardon and Chloe spend together, the harder it is to fight their growing feelings for each other. Things between them have always been Too Complicated, but Reardon knows this may be his last chance to win over the woman he's always dreamed of, complications be damned.

Too Complicated is the second in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.

Crazy tall, with blond, perfectly styled hair and bright-blue eyes, Reardon Lewis was not a hard man to look at. In fact, sometimes I would catch sight of him and my body would react in a completely unexpected way.
Kind of like it is now…
I was aware of the heat coming off his body, his shoulders so large that they were barely a centimeter away from mine, as he slouched into the seat, probably trying to reach some level of comfort. His hands were palm down on his thighs, and were so very large that just looking at them seemed to cause something inside of me to start twitching.
Then there was his smell.
Good Lord on earth, it was heavenly.
I’d caught a whiff every now and then, but at this proximity the bright, clean smell of him seemed to wrap around me in a warm hug.
“Chloe?” he asked, and I snapped out of my scent-induced stupor, and realized he’d asked me something.
“I’m sorry, what?” I asked, hoping he didn’t suspect that I was having a physical reaction to his presence. I clenched my thighs together and started counting to twenty, hoping to make the tingle go away.
“I asked if this is the first time you’re seeing it.”
“Seeing what?” I asked dumbly.
“Star Wars,” he replied with a chuckle, then narrowed his eyes at me. “Are you okay?”



4 Stars 


Too Complicated, is the second title in the Lewis cousins series and features Reardon and Chloe.  I thoroughly enjoyed Chloe and Reardon's story.  You really need to read the first book in this series Too Tempting, as the story follows the same group of characters, and follows off where the previous book left off. 

Although Chloe and Reardon have a complicated history and relationship due to their familial ties, both characters are completely endearing.  I adored Reardon who is quite enigmatic, the sexy, suit wearing, kind hearted lawyer, who underneath has tattooed hard body, with geekish tendencies. 

Chloe is fiercely independent, used to relying only on herself and her sister Zoe.  A single parent of a teen son, she's put relationships on the back burner to raise her son. 

A fast paced read that I thoroughly enjoyed and I eagerly anticipate the release of the next book in this series, and cannot wait to see which of the Lewis cousins will find their happy ever after next.

Troubled
Aussie football star, Rhett Williams’ infamous off-field misdemeanours
land him in front of his club’s board with an ultimatum: clean up his
bad-boy image or lose his contract.


There’s one catch: appear on a reality show to reinvent himself.


Football
is Rhett’s lifeblood, but his family and the orchard farm in the
country where he grew up means more, especially as his family relies on
his wage to keep the business afloat. So Rhett puts his opinion of
reality shows aside to concentrate on doing whatever it takes to be
re-signed.


Career-focussed
TV mentor, Tori Winchester doesn’t have time for men, or a social life,
which suits her fine. When Rhett Williams arrives on set with his blond
beach hair and his mesmerising blue eyes, her resolve begins to
crumble. He’s not the spoiled bad boy casting had told her to expect.


Getting involved with someone like Rhett could not only damage her long-term career prospects, they could both lose everything.


In a game of cat and mouse, Rhett is playing the one game he doesn’t want to win…

Viper - J.J. Marstead - Release Blitz & Review


IT'S LIVE!




Tammy

What the hell was I thinking? If someone would've told me I would be involved with a male-whore biker like Viper, I would've said they were crazy. But here I am having feelings for someone I know I shouldn't be with. He's been trying to be with me for months. And for months I was strong and resisted. But one day stupid me, agreed. I mean what the hell, right? How bad could it be? After that, my decision comes back to bite me big time. It's not the greatest, but can I really regret being with Viper? There's something about him that makes it hard to stay away from him.


Viper

Man, this woman makes me want to strangle her or drop her like a bad habit, whichever comes first. I swear there are days where I don't know if I'm talking to her or her split personality. One day everything is good and she's wonderful, everything I've ever wanted, but then the shit hits the fan. The going back and forth is enough to drive anyone insane but I still want her. Am I under some spell or completely out of my mind? Whatever it is, I don’t know if I’m coming or going with her. But then something comes back to bite me where it fucking hurts the most. It's enough to destroy everything I want with Tammy. How can we move past this? Will she be able to forgive me and love me as I love her?









3 stars

Viper has so much potential. Having read the previous title in this series, I found the writing to be much improved but there are some real inconsistencies with the plot and timeline of events syncing up.  It also really requires editing, as I picked up quite a few errors. 

Overall the story is engaging, has heat and the hero and heroine share a great chemistry all things I look for in a great romance. 

Although it's an MC romance, the MC is not a huge part of the plot.

I really believe that with editing and beta reading this book could really be improved. 

I look forward to seeing J.J. Marstead develop as an author and look forward to reading more of her work in the future. 









J.J. Marstead lives in a quiet little town in Quebec, Canada. 
She is originally from a small Island in Canada called ‘Prince Edward Island’.
J.J. Marstead is the pen name; she wanted to have a pen name because it seemed pretty awesome.

Her real name is Jessica Martell, and no she is not ashamed of writing.
She loves to read and now she has taking up writing as a new adventure. 
She’s a stay at home mom, so she has plenty of time to think of naughty things to write.

Married to the love of her life of nine years, they have a lovely daughter who is seven years old, and they have two dogs, full house.

Title: Waiting to Fall
Series: Waiting Duet #2
Author: Alyson Reynolds
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Alyson Reynolds
Release Date: May 16, 2017





Finn Crawford never thought his life would change with one stupid dare. Or that he would make the mistake of taking things too far with his twin sister’s best friend. Now he’s fighting off an attraction he didn’t expect.



Cora Donovan doesn’t want a relationship, especially one with the guy who’s always been there for her when she needed it most. Just being in the same room as him makes her body heat up in ways she never thought possible.



There’s only one other thing that might stand in their way of being together, if they can actually figure out how to make it work. Neither of them want to hurt Olivia, and if they broke up, that’s exactly what would happen. Sometimes it’s hard to determine if love is worth the risk.
