Complicating Roy ends in a less complicated happy ever after...
From the blurb:
Complication doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.
Duke Charles needs a break. He’s tired of life on the road and never having a place to settle down. He decides to head to Norville for a rest in his childhood home. Once there, he realizes his life isn’t quite so relaxed—he’s not only inherited the house, but a cat to go with it. When his friend from high school sends him on a date, he finds out how complicated life can be…in a good way.
Roy Mars likes his life as an artist. He paints, sells work and takes his cat, Raphael, for walks through Norville. He channels his emotions into his art…until he goes on a date and meets Duke. His uncomplicated life gets thrown into chaos, not least because Duke has rabid fans who insist on knowing every detail of his life.
Can Roy handle a little complication in the form of Duke, or will he quit before he finds his forever?
Having read the first book in the series, Loving Summer Rain, I had an idea of what to expect from Complicating Roy and also this author's cadence... and I found that this time around the characters had a bit more depth and the dialogue was easier to follow. I love that James is a central figure in bringing Roy and Duke together, but I wish that there was more build up from the blind date, a way for the characters to interact and actually talk...
Complicating Roy does move fast and has some ups and downs, but overall it was an enjoyable read and I would recommend checking it out if you like an insta-romance with just a dash of angst... I also recommend starting with Loving Summer Rain to meet some of the characters and understand the world Megan Slayer is starting to build.
Rating: 4 Stars
Complicating Roy is a book by a new to me author and I had mixed feelings about it. I sometimes have a hard time getting into the tired rock star genre, but wanted to give this one a try because the blurb intrigued me. There seemed to be a lot of misunderstandings and issues to get through for Duke and Roy. Also, to me at least, going through the beginnings of sobriety is probably not the best time to start a relationship. In the end the book was okay, just not one I would probably put to read over and over again pile.
