“Isn’t it terrible when love is not enough?”

In the action-packed sequel to Complicated Creatures: Part One…

Jack Roman was perfectly happy living the life of a high-powered and charismatic philistine. He had time, money, women and a penchant for the fast life. Until he met his match in Samantha Wyatt and his obsession with her would take him to hell and back…

Wes Elliott’s been dreaming of the muse he let go of as a young man—the woman he never forgot throughout his travels and the successes he’d left her to find. He always thought he’d see Sammy again—he just never expected her to be fighting for her life when he did…

Samantha Wyatt is being challenged by her past, tested by her decisions, and hunted by her nemesis. As her dangerous present and enigmatic past collides, Samantha conducts the riskiest operation of her life, and the men who love her will be forced to decide: Do they trust her enough to let her protect them? And do they love her enough to let her go?

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***

  Everything I said when I reviewed Complicated Creatures applies to this. This is what I said:-
COMPLICATED CREATURES: This is Part One of a Love Story with an Action/Adventure Background. Alternatively it is a thrilling page-turner of a story in which two of the central characters happen to fall in love.
No red-blooded male reader would not wish to change places with Jack, and female readers will likewise change places with Sam (Samantha) though they may not always approve of the way she treats Jack.
Sam is an ex-special forces girl, expert marksman with a rifle, brilliant martial arts expert in all disciplines, particularly Judo her first choice. She is co-head of a firm specialising in bodyguard work, including finding kidnap victims and recovering them. She is from an oil-rich Texas family, but with a firm of over one hundred employees, she is now rich in her own right. Jack is a qualified architect and financially very successful property developer. Beautiful women meet him and then immediately lust after him and now, for the first time he meets a woman who does not, ——Sam.
I recommend this to you both for the love story where the two main characters are believable in everything from action to speech, and for the brilliantly written action sequences when Sam and her team are at work. The main story is complete, except for the cliff hanger at the end when you will be left wondering just how the problems keeping Sam and Jack from –Happy Ever After will be resolved (or indeed if they even have a future together).
In Part Two gets even more complicated as before long Sam has two suitors so it becomes a triangle. Enter Wes Elliott, a successful photojournalist and the first love of Sam’s life. You will enjoy that same high standard of story telling and characters’ development. The cliff-hanger ending is one of the most dramatic I have ever read and anyone hooked this far will, like me, be waiting for Part Three.
