Publisher's Summary

Reardon Lewis is a small-town lawyer in Cherry Springs, the place where he and his cousins grew up. With the body of a Viking and the heart of a geek, Reardon is loyal to his family and indispensable to his community. The only thing missing in his life is love, and it just so happens that the one woman he has always wanted but could never have has just moved to Cherry Springs.

Chloe Zahn is a successful businesswoman, a city girl, and a single mom. The last thing she ever planned to do was move to a small town, but that's the choice she's made to bring her son closer to his dad. The only problem? The Lewis family and the obvious disdain they have for her.

The more time Reardon and Chloe spend together, the harder it is to fight their growing feelings for each other. Things between them have always been too complicated, but Reardon knows this may be his last chance to win over the woman he's always dreamed of, complications be damned.

Too Complicated is the second in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.

Another Great Lewis Story

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I liked this book as well as the one before. It is a wholesome romance. Bethany Lopez does a great job of telling the story of the Lewis clan. Each one is a standalone and doesn't required previous knowledge. This story has a little bit of the previous story, but, it does not require the previous book to be read. The narrator, Anne James, does a great job with the characters and the tone of the story.

Rear...the gentle viking...

We met Reardon in book 1 when he was assisting with Gabe's football camp, and then when Gabe found out that he was the father of Zoe's nephew. We discovered that Rear had his eye on Chloe, Zoe's sister, first but then she chose Gabe. As we get into Reardon's story, we learn that he has never really gotten over Chloe...she's his 'one that got away'. Now he's trying to decide if he should make his move or move on. Chloe has moved to Cherry Springs so that she and her son, Chris, could be close to his father and family...and her sister. She's helping Zoe plan her wedding to Gabe. She has the tingles for Reardon but is afraid of losing his friendship so she keeps acting as if she's not affected by him. Zoe keeps trying to set up Chloe w single guys and that sets off Rear. After much tiptoeing around each other, the pair finally decide to give a relationship a try...all should be well then, right? Not so much! No spoilers...read the book...you will not be disappointed!
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Good small town romance

Reardon and Chloe's story was so sweet. I loved how these two nerds fell in love. I use that term with endearment. Reardon is a sexy nerd who I fell head over heals for. He has been in love with Chloe forever and when he gets his shot, he won't give up. Chloe is a single mom trying to establish herself in a new town. These two had their ups and downs, but I loved watching them find their way. A good small town romance story.

The narrator did a good job. At times it was hard to distinguish male and female parts, but didn't detract from the story.

Gets complicated!

Here we are with the second book in the Lewis cousins clan. I love getting to this entire family. They have this wonderful relationship, a bit of a family love. So in Too Complicated I really just went in blind. I already knew I would enjoy Bethany Lopez's writing and I just adore the characters so I wasn't worried about any of those things. Chloe and Reardon are a mess and Too Complicated fits them perfectly. Reardon is the whole package! Anyone woman would be so lucky to be with him but he's only had eyes for one woman.


Anne James does a great job narrating the entire story. I feel like she was able to give feelings to each character and really gave them a bit more depth. It was a good listen.

A must listen!

Too Complicated was a fun and wonderful small town romance. This was my first book in this series and I definitely felt I was not missing out by starting with book 2. I enjoyed this loving family set in a small town and comic loving characters. There were ups and downs to take you on an emotional ride. The narrator did a wonderful job conveying all the characters in this story. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

Another hit

Bethany Lopez does not disappoint in this second edition of this series, even though can can read as a stand-alone, you know some of the characters from the first edition of the series. Reardon and Chloe are a great couple that just makes you root for them and are great together. I love this series and can’t wait for the next edition. Anne James narration was great and I could not stop listening

The title fits the story

Potential Spoilers if you haven't read/listened to Too Tempting.

The title certainly fits the plot of this book. If you've made it this far you know that Zoe's sister Chloe had a baby with Gabe but didn't tell anyone who the father was. In the first book of this series, of course we see Zoe fall in love with Gabe and learn to deal with that fact. Reardon is Gabe's cousin and was attracted to Chloe the instant he saw her across the bar 13 years ago. Unfortunately for him she went home with Gabe instead. Initially when Chloe returned to Gabe's life, Reardon was wary and suspicious of her, being concerned that she was trying to take advantage of him. Realizing that she just wants her son to have a relationship with his father, Reardon now has to convince Chloe that he doesn't hate her, despite how he's treated her in the past. I liked this book, it was honest about how weird and awkward the situation was, while also acknowledging you can't help who you fall in love with (stranger love triangles have happened in real life). The characters were great, and my heart went out to Chloe being a single mom all those years and then having to deal with the fallout from keeping the secret. I adore stories that have large, close-knit families who stick by each other. The banter and teasing between the characters is funny and had me smiling. This is a great addition to the series. I listened to the audio version and really liked it, it kept me entertained while tackling a large project. The narrator, Anne James did a really great job.

Too Complicated

What a great book! The fact that these two missed out on something so beautiful when they were younger is sad, but then things wouldn’t have worked out so perfectly if it hadn’t happened. A perfect second chance love story that you will listen to non stop all the way to the end.
