Complicated Creatures - Part 1

Complicated Creatures - Part 1 is truly amazing and it caught my attention from the very beginning. Samantha is a woman that you just don’t want to fuck with, period, end of story. Not only does she know Jiu-Jitsu but she fights very dirty. She has no problem kicking your ass and making you remember. She’s rich, she was in the NAVY, did interrogations and now she is in charge of an insurance company that specializes in protection. She just moved into a beautiful penthouse next door to Jack. He owns the place.

Jack has insomnia. He’s rich and has been saving the place next door for his brother, nice. He has no idea that Sam is a woman until he meets her for the first time when she takes a swim in their pool. Right away he’s attracted to her. There’s just something about her that he can’t get over. Loving a dangerous woman is very intriguing.

Jack and Sam to me are good for each other. Right away you notice how Jack changes when she’s around, but he has trust issues. They both do really. He wants to know everything about her and gets frustrated when she doesn't tell him. My thinking is, get over it. Some of the things she does she can’t talk about and I felt like he was going to screw it up, he probably already did. Sam is a very strong individual who not only looks out for the people who work for her but she would die for them. She’s sexy, intriguing, and dangerous. Whether she wants to admit it she is very open hearted, vulnerable and easily hurt.

Complicated Creatures - Part 1 is a really great read and I can’t wait for part 2. I’m excited to see how the story ends.


Book Blurb for Complicated Creatures - Part 1

“It’s normal to love a dangerous woman. They know how to wield their power, and they are not afraid of yours. They make you work for everything you get and it's all the sweeter once you get it…”What happens when curiosity becomes obsession?

From author Alexi LAWLESS, the first part in a provocative series...

Luck is Jack Roman's middle name— and Chicago is his Empire. He lives to work, loves to play, and makes no commitments. But when the mysterious S. Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, he's immediately drawn to her, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations in the most dangerous parts of the world.

Intrigued by her self-possession, aroused by her incredible passion, and disarmed by a vulnerability she cannot hide, Jack pursues her into the nexus of her dangerous present and her enigmatic past. An entire world is revealed to Jack, where living for pleasure becomes fighting for survival. And the only woman he wants may be the one he cannot have...

COMPLICATED CREATURES is a mesmerizing, labyrinthine romantic suspense that will leave you wondering: Do you really want to know everything about the one you love?
