Review: Complicated by You (Coventon Campus Series , Book 1) by Kenya Wright

I’ve been meaning to read a book by Kenya Wright since I encountered her during a blog hop late last year. The erotic aspect of her romances held me back. I read this novel as one of the recommended books in March for the  Around the World in 80 Books Reading Challenge. It was the perfect opportunity to finally read her work.

Evie's childhood friend Jay has always had her back. But college complicates things as Jay starts dating Evie's roommate Cynthia. Now, Evie spends her nights trying to sleep while Jay and Cynthia go at it like rabbits a few feet away! 

Evie hates feeling like a third wheel and hates wishing it was her in Jay's arms even more. It doesn't help that Jay won't let Evie date or even hook up without interfering and making sure everyone on campus knows that she's off limits. 

Something has to give. Evie can't continue pining away for Jay, and Jay can't continue to act like he owns her when he won't so much as touch her. And worse of all, Evie can barely look Cynthia in the eye for fear she will know just how she feels about Jay. 

Then one night shifts Evie, Jay and Cynthia into an web of love and deceit, tangling their hearts and forcing one of them to come to a compromise that will change all their lives. 

How far should someone go for love? 

My Review
Every once in a while a little bit of super spicy is in order when it comes to romances.  Complicated by You  was a perfect break from my usual sweet and spicy.

I didn’t know what to expect when a started the novella. I became enthralled by how much romance Ms. Wright was able to mix into the story. The characters had me giggling throughout  with their conversations and antics.

Although I don’t agree with the decision of the heroine, I still respect her. My engagement with her characters means Ms. Wright has done a proper job of trapping me in the world of her writing. I will be reading more of her books in the future.

I give this book five out of five chocolate bars (Snickers).

I purchased it from Amazon.

Happy reading everyone.
