It was complicated, it was also just the beginning.
A decision.
A simple choice.
There is always that one moment in life where things could have been different. That one moment where you could have chosen a path that would lead you down a certain road. 
A different life. 
It was easier to pretend that we were still best friends, and that she was my girl and I was her boy. 
Pretending was better than knowing the truth...
I. Ruined. Us.
I had her. 
I lost her. 
I love her.
All I did was complicate us.

Standalone series. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Strong language and sexual content, not intended for readers under 18.


  • Decent

    By Hanaorann
    The plot and idea of the book is honestly heartbreaking and sweet and everything that I’m looking for in a love story. BUT, I could not for the love of all great things finish it due to how unsupportive all the other characters were towards Alex and Lucas. It’s just messed up and too repetitive.
  • Read it

    This is by far one of the best books I’ve ever read. I cried, I laughed, I felt heartache. It was truly unlike anything I have read before. I was instantly drawn in. Every character was real. It played out before me like a movie. Only great books can work that kind of magic on me. Talented writing all around. Also, I laughed when I finally realized Austin is also from El Diablo.
  • Awesome book!

    It is a great book. I have never written a review before, but this one deserves it. It is a very emotional story with a good ending. Can't wait for Jacob's story.

    First time reading this author. Good writer who wrote a compelling story of young star crossed lovers. It held my interest throughout even though I am a mature reader. Because I am, it could be a little too descriptive for my taste, useing language for body parts that turn me off rather than turn me on. But these days I am sure I am in the minority judging from all the writers who are doing the same thing, and all the readers who don’t seem to mind it in their rave reviews and don’t mention it.
  • Absolutely loved it!!!! 😍😍😍

    By luvmymonkz
    I truly loved Bo and Half-Pint's love story. Talk about a hot complicated mess!! This book made me laugh, cry, mad, sad and all of the above! I especially loved that the book narrated from their childhood and on. And the ending was perfect. This story signifies that what happens in the past doesn't matter. You can go through countless heartaches, but when the right time comes, you still and always will follow your heart.
  • It’s complicated

    I didn’t know what to expect going in to read Complicate Me. I’ve enjoyed every other book from Mrs. Robinson so I went into this one with an open mind although I hate contemporary romance with a passion. With that being said the dynamic between Alex and Lucas kept you on your toes waiting with fear on where their lives will lead them. I can say I was angry with most of their family and friends for more than half of the book. I think they had a lot to do with some of the hurt and pain Alex and Lucas went through. The prologue was very, very good and sucked you in right off the bat. The rest was a bumpy ride and at times I wasn’t sure what the outcome would be. You found yourself saying, “how many ups and downs can one couple go through before it’s no longer worth it?” We see Alex, Lucas, and the boys grow up from children to adults. We see them grow apart and find their way back to each other. You feel what they feel and you just want to take them all aside and tell them to live life for themselves and not to worry about what anyone else thinks or feels. I could easily see this book and this series playing on the big screen as part of a series starting from the beginning. Although it’s a very different genre from what we’re used to seeing from M, it’s still very much her signature style. Complicate Me did just that. It was messy, complicated, and at times painful to bear but in the end I believe they came out stronger and the bond they share held up through the test of time.
  • You'll laugh, cry and everything between. <3 this book

    By mgrambo3
    Let start off by saying like everything that M. Robinson writes, this is full of emotions and angst, but unlike the books she has wrote in the past this is sweet romance. I love that she is able to step out of her comfort zone of what she always has done and is able to write Complicate Me. This is the first book in the Good 'Ol Boy series. This book made me laugh and cry and almost every emotion between. M. Robinson books never are cookie cutter books that you are able to predict everything that will happen when you are a third of the way in. She keeps you at the end of your seat needing more, more and more. I am so glad to be able to have read this and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. Even though this is still a sweet romance she still adds some spice here and there. Take the time to read this book you won't be sorry.
