COMPLICATED BY YOU is a sexy New Adult love story about a girl who loves so deeply that it may cost her everything.

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?

Until it’s no longer convenient, or until it’s tearing apart their soul? Evie soon realizes that love isn’t always easy and loving someone isn't as simple as it seems. Sometimes, it's COMPLICATED.

Look for Evie and Jay's story to continue in December 2013!

Review: I loved reading Complicated by You by Kenya Wright. The relationship between Jay and Evie is fun, unique, steamy, and genuinely frustrating at times. That said, I adored the closeness between Evie and Jay. They're a perfect balance for each other. I did find it a little unbelievable that it would take so long for Jay and Evie to realize they mutually have feelings for each other, but it seems both were a little in denial.

I have to admit that Ms. Wright blew me away with the twist with Cynthia. I kept screaming NO in my head and it really made me a little angry at Jay. To put Evie in such a weird position really left her no options if she wanted to be with her best friend. Overall, Complicated by You was entertaining to read and at the same time a little frustrating, but I think Ms. Wright did a wonderful job bringing to life the characters. I immediately felt a connection to Evie, Jay, and Pipe. I can't wait to see what book 2 brings! I'm sure more hair pulling, but that's okay this one was totally worth it. ;)
