Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Rock Chick series comes a story of love, murder, and second chances....

When small-town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn't be stronger, but the timing couldn't be worse.

Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids and himself is his only priority.

Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her and the brother she adores that's perfect for them - a sleepy little town in Nebraska. She's learned from life that there are no hopes and dreams. The only thing to look forward to is peace. And that's what she works hard to build for herself and her brother. Right up until Hix walks into her life.

Hix can't fight the pull and stay away from Greta for long. And Greta's finding it hard not to hope for something more with all the promise that is Hix.

But when the first murder that's happened in over five decades rocks his small, sleepy county, Hix has got to learn to trust again, convince Greta to take a shot with him, and at the same time catch a killer.

In other words, things are definitely...Complicated.

Not worth the money...

Thankfully I got this book on a 2 for one sale. I'm glad I did not pay full price. There is no character development but a lot of the author's character is revealed...
The female narrator aways sounded frustrated and harried .
I would not recommend this book.

Disappointing

I could not finish listening to it. The story was just too melodramatic. I tried.

Story was great but too much crassness.

I stuck with it as the story was interesting but it was overwritten overly descriptive and over acted by the narrators. Tender moments were overshadowed by crude and vulgar language that wasn’t necessary. The story would have been beautiful if it had been less wordy and less vulgar.

Another Great KA Romance!

Kristen Ashley didn’t disappoint! Fell in love with sheriff Hixon Drake from the start! I loved the chemistry between Greta and Hixon, as well as the the secondary characters. There was also enough angst, grovel, romance, action, and drama in this book.
I’m a huge fan of Lance Greenfield and his performance of the hero just made me love him more! This audible is a must listen! 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for sure. #audible1

Very good but wordy

I enjoyed listening to this book however many useless comments that have no impact to the story and could have easily been left out. Still love it and would recommend it to others. Not a huge fan of hearing details around anal, what’s the point?

Complicated was a pleasure to my senses!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hix was my favorite character. I loved that he's in his forties. He knows who he is and what he wants. He's a good father and he's smart, sexy, funny and takes care of his own.

Which character – as performed by Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon – was your favorite?

I loved both Lance and Erin. Their voices were perfect for these characters. The were a pleasure to my ears!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I would have loved to have listened to it in one sitting, it was that good.

Any additional comments?

Kristen Ashley always delivers the sexy, strong heroes and the independent, sassy leading ladies. Complicated is a story filled with heat, love, suspense, family and heart. I loved every minute of it. The narrators brought this story to life and kept me in the edge of my seat the entire time. Complicated was a pleasure to my senses and kept me wanting more.

Excellent Mixture of Romance, Mystery, & Mayhem

Any additional comments?

Another well crafted story that expertly intertwines romance, mystery, and murder and keeps the reader riveted. Hix is sheriff in a quiet little town where crime is rare. He moved there to satisfy his wife's demand to live near her parents. Seven years and two children later, Hix and Hope are divorced and he is trying to establish a new home for his children who are now in their teens. Greta moved to the little town to find a safe and peaceful place to care for her brother. Greta is a stunning beauty who catches Hix's eye while he watches her sing at the Do-Drop Club, an upscale restaurant. Hix and Greta have an immediate and lusty attraction that they unsuccessfully try to resist. The sleepy little town is rocked when murders begin to occur that Hix is working to solve."Complicated" is an excellent story with everything we expect from Kristen Ashley. The narration by Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon is perfect.. .

A SUPERNOVA OF SENSATIONS & DELICIOUS COMPLICATION

Kristen Ashley very quickly became an auto-download author for me because her multi-layered stories never disappoint, always entertain and I'm captured from the start by her loveable fictional characters. And, with this plot, KA has outdone and outshone herself as she so skilfully weaved a slow to develop well crafted love story between a vulnerable yet strong Hairdresser/Lounge Singer and a vulnerable yet very alpha Sheriff who'd both experienced love and marriage before. Neither one was looking for love in their small town, neither one was expecting the bag full of complications their relationship would bring, neither one would go unscathed by the challenges brought on by past relationships of various different kinds and I'd like to say neither one let go.. but tut tut that would be a lie.

Detailed descriptions allowed me to conjure up full mental images as each chapter whizzed by telling the story of second chances, stressful situations, small town life, strings, smouldering passion, sizzling chemistry, sexy times, a sinister Mother, a shitty ex wife, a brain-injured son, three torn in two siblings.. and a murder most foul. And I was gripped as it seemed like every chapter threw in new complications, new challenges and new revelations for these two lovers whose rollercoaster romance would be sweet but tested over and over again. However, their HEA destination would be worth every twist, every turn, every tug at their hearts.. and every tear. Dual POV's and Lance and Erin did a fantastic job of narrating this written for Audible love story.

Worth a credit? Definitely.. and, at 18.14 hrs, it's thankfully a COMPLETE story - so no delays to the HEA's, no release dates to watch out for before you lose sight of the intricacies of the daily dimming plot and hallelujah no cliffhangers that'll take another one, two or even three credits before you get the full story. So thank you Kristen and thank you Audible because in this epic emotion filled story is heart, heat, home, humor and happy endings.

awesome start, too long unfortunately... lost me

great story & characters, and I loved the novelty of a Kristen Ashley being told in 2 voices. Unfortunately, as it tends to happen with her recent books, the story lost its momentum and a good third of it felt unnecessary... still 1 of my favorite romance authors!!

Not Complicated Enough For Me

Lord knows I love KA and audiobooks, so I was excited to hear this one when it was announced it would be available exclusive to Audible first. It started off good and as the story began to unfold, I was eager as to how it would all play out, but was sadly disappointed. It had such potential and just fizzled out. Even the epilogue was lacking the usual KA awesomeness.

Decent story, inept narrator

What did you like best about Complicated? What did you like least?

This was a decent KA romance. After the first chapter, I almost quit, thinking I wasn't going to like it at all. But it got better, then better, then better. It ended as a decent book, not her best, but not her worst, either. Fairly entertaining, which is all I require.

What other book might you compare Complicated to and why?

Any of KA's contemporary romances. All the heroes are in law enforcement or some such thing, and all the heroines are beautiful and wonderful.

How could the performance have been better?

Argh. Let me count the ways. Neither narrator could do the voice of the opposite sex in any believable manner. I realize that a "duet" narration would have been costlier, but it would have been much, much better. But worst of all, the male narrator couldn't manage any consistency with a secondary character's name. The hero's daughter, Mamie, was first Mamie, then instead of pronouncing her nickname "Mame," he called her "Mam," and ended the book by calling her "Mammy!" It was completely annoying and pulled me out of the story every time. For an Audible brand book, there was no quailty control at all.

Mispronunciation of Mamies name...

Great story, if the name of youngest daughter Mamie hadn't gone to Mammie... annoying and distracting

trashy

way too much unnecessary dialogue and lengthy sex scenes. The murder mystery was never an integral part of the story, it just dwindled away. I always finish books I start but this was a tough one to listen to to the end.
