Complicate Me (The Good Ol' Boys, #1)Complicate Me by M. Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I went into this book not really knowing what to expect. The synopsis sounded good so I thought I’d give it a try. Yeah, the first chapter in and I was hooked; three chapters later—by then my lunch break was over—and I was disappointed I’d have to wait until I got home to read.
We meet Alex, a tomboy, who grows up surrounded by four boys who love her more than life. They’re her fierce protectors, and she’s like their little sister…to everyone, except for Lucas. He loves Alex in a different way but he just doesn’t understand it.
Alex is only two years younger than the boys, but she thinks she’s just a grown as they are, until they all realize they’re not. We watch them grow and blossom; the boys surrounding themselves with girls, and Alex on the sidelines watching.
Lucas and Alex always have a special bond—she’s his brown-eyed girl, his half-pint, and he’s her Bo. Until Cole comes to town. Cole is everything Lucas isn’t with her, he flirts, befriends her, and loves her. Alex and Cole form a different kind of relationship, much to Lucas’ dislike.
I felt as though real life hit me in the face. Heartbreak at its best! You don’t know who you want to win Alex’s heart: Cole or Lucas. They take us on a bumpy ride only to realize that love is right there in front of us, and has been, the whole time.
My only gripe is the rotating POVs within chapters, and sometimes the retelling of the same scene that switching views causes. This won’t stop me from reading anything by M. Robinson again, though. I really enjoy her writing. It sucks me right in, and I feel as if I’m right there in the middle of everything.
4 ½ solid stars
I don’t know where to start; this book just sucked me in. This is my first time reading an M. Robinson story and it will not be my last.
Alexandra, aka Half Pint, grew up an only child, but that was fine with her. She had four neighbor boys that loved her as fiercely as she loved them. Alex was always just one of them from the day she was born.
Alex formed a strong bond with Lucus, her ‘Bo’ as she called him, than she had with the other boys. The tie that Bo and Half Pint shared was on that the other boys could not even understand, but then, neither of them could, either.
I loved this story! To me this story felt real and true, and not like a fairytale written for a particular audience. I can’t wait for the next one.
5 stars
