" He could unravel me like no other, he could destroy me, but like a moth drawn to a bright flame, I step into my demise."- Rachel
They were deeply in love, hiding their relationship because of a five year age difference. Everything was amazing, but with one major, life altering decision, their relationship will crumble.
Rachel thought she was doing the right thing. But doing that right thing will destroy her and Marshall's relationship. It's a secret she's kept for year's.
"It was never done between us, Rae. True love doesn’t just end, it’s forever."- Marshall
Every now and again, they find their way back to each other, only for it to end as soon as it began.
With one tragedy, it will bring Rea and Marshall together again, but will Rea finally let this secret stop hurting what she wants... a relationship with Marshall?
I've never read the previous book's, so I didn't know anything about any of the characters, and you don't have to. There isn't a better title for this novella, because Rachel and Marshall are definitely complicated. I was wanting her to finally tell him why she pushed him away, but it didn't happen. This book is about 40% sex. We get a cliffhanger, a major one, but I can see what's coming. I need to read the previous book. M
Rachel has dealt with being unloved by her parents, but what is a gal to to when the one that holds her heart does not return the feeling. Marshall wants what he knows he should not have, but hell he is a red blooded male and the sweet lord put temptation right under his nose. Can he break down her walls and convince her to take a risk?
What great love story doesn’t have its bumpy roads, for me this only makes the story all the more better. Rachel and Marshall have their own problems to work out before they can move on. The plot was full of twist that have that had shock factor power, even though Complicated ended as a cliffhanger it is a novella a (#2.5) so I feel it ended quite well and leads into a stronger story line in the book that follows. I Love Marshall’s sister Dehlia, Rachel’s bestie. A real ball buster. Need more of her.
The book gives us quick flashbacks to when their relationship began. Rachel was 15 and Marshall was 20. Even though their relationship is, ahem, unconventional, neither one of them makes a big deal about it. Other than insisting that Rachel goes to her high school dances, Marshall doesn’t do the whole “Oh my god, I can’t do this, you’re younger than me” thing. I seriously hate that. He truly cares about Rachel and wants to start a life with her as soon as she turns 18. The flashbacks are brief but effective. We get to see why their relationship was so wonderful in the first place, and why it fell apart.
The breakup was heartbreaking and made me want to give Rachel a huge hug. Yes, I judged her a little bit in “Tainted Love” when the reason was first mentioned. But after “experiencing” the breakup, I want to go back and kick myself. It wasn’t what originally thought.
All of this makes the present that much harder, because I wanted them to sit down and have a real conversation about the past so they could move on and be happy, but there never seemed to be time. After all this time, Marshall's world still revolves around Rachel. It turns out he wasn't much of a womanizer after all. Marshall and Rachel would like to think they have a volatile relationship like Delilah and Ben, but in reality it’s romantic, passionate and very sweet. Neither was very good at hiding how in love he/she still was. Now I’m totally Team Get-Over-Yourself-and-Tell-Him-the-Truth-Already!
Ghiselle St. James gets better with every book she writes. The writing was beautiful, clean and so funny. She always manages to make me laugh, cry and curse at a book. After the ending to this one I am counting the days to the conclusion. She gets me every time.
