TOO COMPLICATED Synopsis:
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.
Too Complicated is a sweet, romantic story about complicated relationships and how to get the one that got away. This is the second in the series and I don’t think it’s entirely necessary to read book one first. There are complicated relationships in the story that book one might have made clearer but this can definitely be read as a standalone. I wasn’t lost too much or for too long.
Chloe is feeling a little lost, a whole lot uncomfortable and a bit lonely. She’s sweet, self-sacrificing and the woman of Reardon’s dreams. Reardon is my dream man. He’s what makes this book for me. He’s tall, hunky and a geek. I was geeking out right along with him. His office sounds like a dream office for me – just throw in some Doctor Who and Supernatural goodies and I’ll be happy as a clam. This isn’t a red hot, fiery passionate story. It’s a slow burn, quiet smolder of one. The chemistry wasn’t noticeable but the connection was. I have to admit that I struggled with connecting with Chloe and if it wasn’t for Reardon, I probably would have put the book down. His adorable reactions to everything geek and the tender way he was with Chloe kept me invested.
This isn’t a hugely dramatic book though there is a small amount of drama. The relationships are definitely complicated. But whose family isn’t these days? This was definitely a light, easy read that in the end was enjoyable. If you like sweet romances, I’d definitely pick this one up. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
