Plot Summary:

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.

My thoughts:

While this can be read as a stand alone, I recommend reading the first book in the series (Too Tempting), first. The love connections in the story read sort of like an episode of Jerry Springer, but in the best and most entertaining way. There are cousins and sisters and babies - there's A LOT going on. Even so, it took me a few chapters to dig in, but that may have been because I have not read the first book. Once I did get in to it, it was a real page turner, especially since I really wanted to see how the characters worked their way through their convoluted connections and got their happily ever after. I also had a special affection for Chloe as a single mom and Reardon for falling for her (as once upon a time I was a single mom, longing for someone to fall for me). I gave the book 3.75 out of 5 wine glasses and I will definitely be going back to read Too Tempting!
