“IT’S COMPLICATED does tackle some serious issues, but Witt takes it and runs, leaving a big impression.”
~ Under the Covers

 

IT’S COMPLICATED is book seven in the Tucker Springs series by L.A. Witt. The premise of the book is one that I was unsure of when I first read it. It’s about a couple who are trying to rekindle their relationship with one another after many failed attempts. However, the impeccable timing of an unexpected pregnancy involving one of the men and his ex-wife really derails what Brad and Jeff have planned for their second chance love story.

Normally, stories involving baby drama are ones I veer away from. However, I found that Witt was really able to make this work in this book. Brad and Jeff have a powerful connection that is evident from the very first page. If that chemistry wasn’t present and in your face so clear in the beginning, I think my opinion of this book would have greatly differed. But because Witt handles the romance side of the book so well, the challenges that stand in their way seem minuscule in comparison.

Also, Brad is wonderful character. He handles the situation with Jeff and Christine so well and with such poise that I think he deserves his own moment to shine. Having both POVs from the men really helped in understanding their thoughts and where they came from. That’s important in such a complicated situation as this one.

Christine, Jeff’s ex-wife, also came across as multi-faced and wonderful. Witt was able to showcase her wishes and desires in just a few pages and I came to like what her character had to offer to the book. If she wasn’t so considerate of Jeff and their shop, I think this book would have crashed and burn and just been a big mess. Witt did a fabulous job with the characterization in this one I think.

IT’S COMPLICATED does tackle some serious issues, but Witt takes it and runs, leaving a big impression.

About L.A. Witt

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who, after three years in Okinawa, Japan, has recently relocated to Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a three-headed clairvoyant parakeet named Fred. There is some speculation that this move was not actually because of her husband's military orders, but to help L. A. close in on her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who has also recently transferred to Omaha. So, don't anyone tell Lauren. She's not getting away this time...

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Thanks for the review. I have been on the fence about getting this book based on the synopsis. The baby drama was a main factor. Will have to reconsider getting it.

Hey Christina!

I was a little iffy going into the book for the same reason, but I was in for a treat because Witt handled it very gracefully I think. Enjoy!

Yes, I tried really hard not to describe it as complicated, but I think it works very well.
