Uncomplicated Choices (Camassia Cove Universe Book 5) Kindle Edition
Comedy Romance | Family | Single Dad | Standalone
Some love stories just want to give you a warm, fuzzy feeling and make you laugh a little. This is one of them.
When life gave you lemons, you found out who stayed and made lemonade with you. Or something to that effect. And the day Ellis kidnapped me—or rather, he borrowed a yacht and didn’t know I was sleeping below deck—he’d definitely been handed too many lemons.
We were practically family, so I owed it to him to stay and make sure he was all right. Apparently he was trying to decide whether or not to divorce his wife, so it was truly not the best time for me to develop a crush.
This story takes place in Cara Dee’s Camassia Cove Universe, a fictional town where all books stand on their own, unless otherwise stated, and the reader can jump in wherever they want.

It’s amazing seeing how the family that all started coming together with Lincoln and Ade, has evolved. Visits from characters that had books previously in the series is amazing too. Little teasers for potential future stories doesn’t hurt my feelings either.
I’ll never get enough of the chosen/meddling family that is loving and supportive, combined with a journey to find love and to live your best life. This book is a perfect example of one way that can look. I’m excited to read the next book because Camassia Cove has become another home for me that I can’t wait to visit again!
I'm excited to read more about Camassia Cove.
The main characters of this book were great. I loved their story and rooting for them from beginning to end. I will say that it was incredibly confusing to read this book after not reading or knowing about Lincoln's story (I don't read M/F) and there's another book from a different series (i think) that features characters from another book (HOME) that I absolutely loved. It's not impossible to follow, it just means you have to read carefully.
Still super disgusted with Jamison's character and don't ever wish to read about him again. Why that was even put in the book, I wonder. It does not make him an endearing character rather the opposite. A man lusting after his stepdaughter (I don't care that he divorced/broke up with his ex). That is vile. That is a predator. His character can be killed off. Or I hope the author explains that entire thing in the following book. Perhaps I read that wrong, but I don't think that I did. I highly doubt that I did. It was a huge issue for me and it took me months to finish this book after reading that bit. I mean it was like 3 pages but they kept joking about him fantasizing her and it was so gross. So effing gross.
But the story itself ... On the one hand it was simply written, but it was also really beautiful and I loved how the hero Casey and his newfound love interest Ellis simply clicked and knew how to communicate and didn't make it a big deal how they were intrigued about someone of their own sex. Sure, Casey had known it for a long time, but Casey was Ellis's first man and it somehow completely minimized the whole factor of Ellis still being married for me. I didn't give a f*** about him being still married, because their marriage was on the rocks and it was simply so obvious that these guys clicked and worked together like a charm.
The sex scenes were also a plus for me this time round because Cara Dee simply knew how to write those scenes. They were hot and there was just the right amount of scenes like that to make my inner perv happy.
Also, have you seen that cover photo? I love it! It's so simple, but gorgeous at the same time and I adore how it also shows Casey's role as a single parent to a four-year-old girl.
Loved Casey’s largely unfiltered honesty and outlook on life and he came across as a joyful sort of guy. His snark and humor made the narrative far more enjoyable than it might have been otherwise. Dialogue with his daughter was hilarious and the little girl was written in really well, not too cute or precocious. The whole ex-wife and baby thing was quite saccharine in the end but made for a nice epilogue. Cara Dee still place high on my list of favorite authors.

Casey the single dad, Ellis the married straight man. Not a pair you'd expect but boy do they deliver. I can't wait to meet them again next time they appear.
