Title: Complicated
Author: Kristen Ashley

Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio. 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.


Complicated starts when Greta and Hix hook up. Then Hix decides it is too soon after his divorce, and he doesn't want "complicated." So, they end it quickly, until his kids find out, the whole town finds out, and some more drama happens that makes Hix unable to stay away from her. 

But, things get more complicated when Hix's ex-wife causes drama, his kids cause problems, and there is a murder in town. And some crazy stuff happens to Greta, and now these two are complicated and they didn't even mean to be. 

I liked this book, although I thought Hix was a major jerk at first. I really liked them together, even though I expected a little bit more out of their romance than what we got. 

Also, the other part of the story line where there's a murder to solve is kind of stagnant, and there's very little action in this book unlike a lot of KA's other books. 

So, while I liked it, it's not my favorite book of hers.
