With lots of people keeping secrets, can they actually discover why so many people want a piece of Mia? Safety in numbers is key as Ethan and Mia's friends gather round to help them. Once the truth is revealed you can guarantee that it will be explosive and blow you mind.
Mia and Ethan's relationship is a complicated one, with both keeping things from the other. Both wanting to completely trust the other but both want desperately to keep the other safe. This is incredibly frustrating as they both go round in circles with this. One thing is absolute for these two and that is the love they have for each other. Ethan, ever the romantic, finds new and amazing ways of surprising her and showing his love for her. He has completely stolen my heart with the things that does for Mia.
The balance between the action and the romance is spot on and the romance adds to the story rather than detracts from it. I absolutely loved this instalment as it kept me hooked from start to finish and beyond. I was in awe of the 'Conflicted' but this takes it to the next level. I am slightly bereft at the thought of having to wait for more from this series. I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms already.
As with book 1, Conflicted, the title of this book is absolutely spot on. It IS complicated, with more secrets, lies, twists and turns than you can shake a stick at. I appear to be having a love/hate relationship with these books because there are quite a few moments when I actually dislike what I'm reading but then it can all swing around at the drop of a hat. For myself, the majority of this book is a 3-star read. It's good, just not anything to shake your pom-poms about. But then, the last 10% of the book happened and wow, it was excellent! It blew me out of the water and I had tears, heart pounding and pulse racing issues whilst I read. It was definitely this portion of the book that upped it to a 4-star read for me.
Okay, so a bit about the characters now. Mia - I still can't get to grips with her. I don't particularly like hearing about her which makes the whole thing a bit difficult when it's written the way it is. Ethan - I actually liked him in the first book but I find myself not wanting them to be together more and more. Ethan spends most of this book making Mia feel guilty over lying to him when he is the one doing the same thing and more. You should not have to walk on eggshells around someone you love nor be afraid to ask questions. Their relationship isn't healthy and I keep hoping that Mia will end up with Jackson, the playboy, who has an honest friendship for Mia that could turn into something else given the chance. Bri and Trey have their own hurdles to cross in this book but they tend to take the backseat to everything else.
A difficult book to read or review but I can still recommend it. It is certainly controversial enough to make it stand out from the crowd - you can decide if that's a good thing or not for yourself.
Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
The pacing to this book is nothing short of frenetic, which can make things a little confusing. I did have to re-read sections on occasion, just to get things straight in my head, as there is simply so much information and action packed into this volume.
Mia is becoming more and more frustrating to read about - she simply keeps making the same mistakes over and over again. I just wanted to shake her until she got her head on straight! That said, the chemistry between her and Ethan practically drips from each page. And so, despite my issues with Mia, I do still feel invested in their HEA.
Overall, a worthy sequel. I cant wait to read the conclusion!
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Complicated carries on from Conflicted ends & finds Mia Ryan with even more questions than she has answers.
After admitting the truth to Ethan, he leaves & sends her & Bri to a luxury resort in Miami, although it is a nice break, she still has to find out the truth as to why she was targeted in the first place.
This was an action packed story & will leave you reeling when the truth is finally revealed.
It is also a true testament to how powerful love can be.
Mia & Ethan are hotter than ever & the banter between them is hilarious,
I really enjoyed reading this & found it very difficult to put down & look forward to reading more about Mia & her friends.

"I had never felt so torn in my life, but ultimately falling in love with him had pushed me to be a better person again."
Mia Ryan hasn’t had an easy few months. Going undercover as a mole at a large company has taken its toll on her, the lies and deceit eating away at her conscience day after day. When Ethan leaves her after learning the truth of her betrayal, she truly doesn’t know if they will have a future beyond all the lies. The closer Mia gets to the truth about who she really is, why Micah betrayed her and what Ethan’s true intentions are, the more complicated things become. In a world full of blackmail and dishonest intentions - who can she really trust? Is her love for Ethan enough to see her through the black cloud that has settled over her life? Or will trusting the wrong person be the end for them all? What I love about Mia is her strength. M.M. Koenig has brought her back stronger, feistier and braver than ever, I love a kickass female and Mia definitely does not disappoint in that department. The tougher the situation, the more determined she was to uncover the truth and right the injustices.
“I won’t give up on us. I’ll do everything in my power to make sure from this day forward that you know how much I need you in my life.”
Ethan’s character is still one that I am just in love with. His fierce need to love and protect Mia are traits that I admire in a male and he certainly stepped up not only his protectiveness but the romance in this book. While Mia’s deceit hit him hard, he refused to give up on what they had and fought hard to keep her by his side. Their connection is intense, passionate and real. I loved how even when surrounded by treachery at every turn - they were still able to find time for themselves and to reaffirm that their feelings for each other were real.
“Ethan, I love you. I just don’t know if it will be enough to save us.”
I started and finished this book in one sitting, it literally took my breath away and had me biting my nails on the edge of my seat all throughout. One minute I was laughing, one minute panting from the steamy scenes, the next crying from heartbreak. The shocks kept coming and as I said, each one blew me away. M.M. Koenig, you truly are genius and I for one, and anxiously awaiting the conclusion to this series.
Another great book! Mia and Ethan's story is superbly entertaining and very enjoyable. Both Conflicted and Complicated kept me guessing and my interest piqued. I'm eager to read the next book in the series. Highly recommend both books.
The story in this book is well written and developed, the plot as I said is very fast paced and will leave you with a desire to read the third book in the series, I know that I personally cant wait to read the next book, I need to know how this all turns out. The characters in this book are very well written and the chemistry between Mia and Ethan is amazing, it has to be with the way Ethan runs hot and cold with his emotions for Mia.
This book I felt was written in two sections, the first part of the book is Ethan trying to prove to Mia and her friends how much he really cares about Mia and wanting to get to know her friends, and of course Ethan shows Mia in the bedroom how much he loves her (several and I mean several times in the first half of the book Ethan and Mia are having sex what seems like every second page in the book). About midway through the book is where the story really starts to pick up, Mia learns things about her past which are affecting her now and her future. It was really heartbreaking to see Mia fall apart during the last half of the book, everything she believed about her past and Ethan was a lie. Will Mia be able to get out from under Harrison's control (the man who hired her to be a mole at Ethan's company), will Mia and Ethan work things out, will Mia be able to get past all of Ethan's lie and secrets? So many questions left unanswered at the end of this book.
COMPLICATED by M.M. Koenig, has left me spinning, this is the second book in the series and book one is a must read before two in order to understand the story, and book three will for sure to added to my ever growing TBR list. I would give COMPLICATED 4/5 stars.
