It was complicated, it was
also just the beginning.
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.

4 Angsty stars!
M. Robinson knows how to deliver the angst. This isn’t my first book by her, so I was somewhat prepared. Complicate Me is a friends to lovers/second chance romance that was stressful to read, emotional and angsty as all get out. It was also sweet and funny at times and warmed my heart. I loved watching these characters grow up. This book was so much more than a romance and focused on more than the main characters. It was a book about friendship first and foremost. A coming of age story about finding out who you are and what you want in life and just maybe finding the love you were always meant to have along the way.
What happens when you find the love of your life at ten years old? Alex and Lucas- affectionately known as Half-Pint and Bo have known each other since the day Alex was born. They’ve been the best of friends, along with the 3 other boys in their group. Alex has always had a special bond with Lucas who is 2 years her senior. As she gets older, it only intensifies, turing into more. This story starts when she is 10 and he is 12 and spans the next 15 years or so. Alex is not perfect. Lucas is not perfect. Their story is not perfect. But their love is true and it’s real. It’s also raw, messy and complicated.
Overall, I loved a lot about this story, it definitely brought out the emotions in me. I went from being happy, to sad, to angry, to livid, to stressed out, to sad again, then to happy again. Their story is one the will stay with me.
I loved her. I knew I loved her, I always have and I always will. She owned every part of me. My heart was hers since before I knew what having her even meant.
I loved the bond that Alex and Lucas shared. Even though both (especially Lucas) infuriated me with their choices, they DID grow up. I can imagine how difficult it would be to find love that young and have everyone going against it. It was fun to see all the boys grow up along the way. I can’t wait for each and every one of their stories. All are interesting in one way or another.
I feel like this book will be a memorable one. One of those books you can look back on remember how you felt when you read this scene, the characters and how much their actions effected your feelings. This book was long, but it didn’t feel long. The story hooked me in pretty quickly and I read most of the book in one sitting. I know this is going to sound crazy, because of the length of the book… but I almost wish it would have been longer. I wanted more of Alex and Lucas together. Through all the stress of the book (and trust me, there was plenty of it) I was happy with the end. I can’t wait to read about the other boys. And after reading that last page… GAH! I need the next book ASAP!
