Complicated (Secret & Lies #2)
Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance
Mia Ryan has learned the hard way that her choices can have horrible consequences. Taking an offer that was supposed to get her life back on track was nothing but a ploy. To keep the ones she holds dear safe, she’s forced to finish what she started, without any hope of finding out why she was targeted in the first place. Though Mia has Ethan by her side, she can’t seem to believe in him, especially since most of his life remains a mystery.
Ethan Fitzgerald has done everything in his power to prove to Mia that she can trust him, but it never seems to be enough to convince her to drop the last wall around her heart. With deep and dark secrets lurking around every corner, he has his own plan to keep Mia from any danger, but it may just shatter their love forever.
There are so many questions – with even more shocking answers – and when Mia uncovers the truth, nothing will ever be the same…
My Review: 3/5 Stars
I am going to be completely honest. I didn’t know if I wanted to go with 2 stars or 3. Don’t get me wrong the story line was awesome. It was jammed packed with lies, betrayal, secrets, friendship, sex, and love. I wanted to know what was going to happen next with Ethan and Mia, but at the same time Mia and Bri (Mia’s best friend) rubbed me the wrong way in the worst way.
If she hadn’t been so stubborn and selfish she would have learned a lot of important things that would have helped her, hell back in the first book.
All that aside, I kept reading because I seriously wanted to know what would happen next. Because this story didn’t follow the normal pattern, it took you on so many twist and turns, you will be sitting there like damn did that just really happen and what the heck is going to happen next.
I seriously have a love/hate thing going with this series, but I really want to know what happens next. Now I have to wait for the next book. Got dangit!
