Complicated Hearts

by Ashley Jade


Expected publication: August 31st 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance




Things are going to get…complicated.

This is Book two (the final book) of the Complicated Hearts Duet. Book one must be read first.

Warning: This book is not for everyone. These characters are flawed and the situation is intense and frustrating. Emotions—all of them—run high. If you’re looking for perfect characters and a perfect story…this book isn’t for you.

Trigger Warning:
This story is strange and unconventional. It’s everything you hate. That’s the only warning I can offer you.



“The heart is a dangerous thing, because the organ never lies. No matter how many deceptions you try to feed it…it always knows what and who it beats for.”

She gets me every single time…right in the heart!

I ran the gamut of emotions while reading this one. I laughed, cried, yelled, and nearly through my kindle more times than I can share. However, I can’t say I wasn’t warned. The author said things were going to get complicated and that’s exactly what happened. Complicated Hearts Book 2 is emotionally charged and utterly unique. It’s a fucking fantastic read!

Here’s the breakdown:

Book 2 picks up right where the previous book ends. Breslin walks in on her exes in a compromising position.

She’s beyond hurt by this turn of events. She never expected Asher to show up in her life again, let alone in an intimate situation with her boyfriend. Needless to say, she runs. The rest of the story focuses on the trio’s attempts to manage some semblance of a relationship. As expected with a story this complicated, there are a few bumps along the way to happy solution. It’s heart-breaking, anger-inducing, and sexy AF.

Here’s what I loved:

The book was completely unpredictable. Neither character responds the way I expected. The story took a couple turns I didn’t expect. But most importantly, the ending was exactly what I wanted, but not at all how I envisioned it. I’ve been reading a long time and it’s refreshing when an author takes you a journey that’s completely unexpected. Kudos, AJ.

The storyline and writing are exemplary. The character interactions and relationship development are top notch. I never thought I’d willingly ask to be put through the ringer, but it happened. I knew this book was going to tear my heart out. I knew I wouldn’t like all the characters. But I simply didn’t care. I FLOVED Book 1 and could not wait to get my hands on book 2. As expected it did not disappoint.

Overall… another great read! I can’t wait to see what’s next!
