Blog Tour: Complicate Me by M. Robinson

Title: Complicate Me (The Good Ol’ Boys)
Author: Best Selling Author M. ROBINSON
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Day: September 14th
Cover Design: Rebecca Marie at The Final Wrap

It was complicated, it was also just the beginning.
A decision.
A simple choice.
There is always that one moment in life where things could have been different. That one moment where you could have chosen a path that would lead you down a certain road.
A different life.
It was easier to pretend that we were still best friends, and that she was my girl and I was her boy.
Pretending was better than knowing the truth...
I. Ruined. Us.
I had her.
I lost her.
I love her.
All I did was complicate us. 

*~*~*~ 5 STARS *~*~*~*~ 

Let’s start with I have read every single book by M Robinson and this is by far the BEST ONE YET!! I hope you guys are ready because this book is going to put you through hell and back literally! It took me about 4 hours to read this book from start to finish and I had to walk about 20 times before I broke my kindle. I laughed, cried, screamed, cussed, threw shit and bit over half my fingernails off. It’s not easy love story it’s very complicated so be ready for a wild ride from start to finish.

I was literally sucked in from the prologue. At first I was nervous about reading about when Alex and Lucas were younger but I think I love them even more after. We literally get to experience their whole entire lives throughout the book. Some parts are so sweet while others not so much. It’s very hard to write this review because I HATE spoilers.

Since they were kids, Alex has loved all her boys. But Lucas has always been different. The boys knew Alex was off limits to them because she was more of a little sister but Lucas always felt different about Alex too. Alex and Lucas had a special bond that the others did not have. They had their special place they went and things they could only do together. There were a few secrets they also kept from the guys as well. I knew when Lucas became a teenager things were going to start changing for him and Alex but NEVER did I realize that at this point it’s were nothing would ever be the same.

I wish I could say I loved Lucas right from the start but I didn’t LOL. He pretty much pissed me off for more than half the book. Now Alex had her flaws to but my feelings always seem to come back to Lucas. UGHHHH I wanted to punch him, smack him, and kick him in the balls multiple times. There are several times in this book I was so PISSED OFF. I wanted to lie down on the ground while screaming and kicking because I kept thinking OMFG how much more do these 2 have to go through. But be ready because some parts aren’t pretty but the ending is absolutely AMAZING!!! I went through hell to get there but by the time I finished I had a huge smile on my face while saying THANK GOD!!!! At the end of the book, I can say I do love Lucas he actually grew on me. I am also excited because this book set up for more books from the other boys and I am excited to see how their stories turn out. Good job M loved it!

My brown eyed girl sat on our blankets with her arms wrapped around her knees, hiding her face. The tiny frame that I adored so much shook uncontrollably, only heightening the deepest sobbing that escalated with each passing second. It was such an intimate moment, not to be shared with anyone, especially me. Alex didn’t cry. I watched her bawl for the first time in my life. I had never seen anyone cry like that before, and it shook me to my core, slicing me whole, and making me feel like I was dying. Carving a memory that I would take to my grave. 
There was no going back…
No erasing.
No do overs.
No deleting.
What I witnessed tonight would be my purgatory; I would now close my eyes and forever see her falling apart in front of me. Shattering before my very own eyes and I found it hard to breathe.
Hard to move.
My feet were glued to the goddamn floor as she continued to weep, sob, bawl, violently sucking in air that wasn’t available. I accepted it all; each tear that fell from her face becoming pieces of me. Circulating through my veins and blood, it flowed endlessly, a river of her sadness and sorrow and of my broken promises. No beginning or ending to her cries, just an infinite current, flooding the hole where my heart should be. The shadow of her trembling petite body reflected off the walls, leaving a trail of regrets in its wake.
Growing up in a small town you overheard a lot of things. People talking, stories told, town gossip. You listened a lot. You learned a lot. Tourists, townies, friends, and especially family all shared wisdom and advice that you think you will never need.
Bunch of bullshit.
They say you have that one moment in life where things could have been different, that one moment that changes the course of your life or the direction you could have taken. That one moment that could forever change you and everything you wanted to be true, everything you wanted to believe.
One simple decision could alter your entire future.
My entire world.
I would forever remember this moment for the rest of my life. This is the moment that changed everything. This is the moment where I took another direction, another road that led me to my own demise.
My own regrets. 
I should have walked in there. I should have apologized. I should have begged for her forgiveness. I should have promised that I would never hurt her again. I should have done whatever it took to make her look at me the way she had our entire lives.
But I didn’t…
I did none of those things…
Not one.
Nothing was said between us.
No words.
No actions.
I was a coward and couldn’t do it. I couldn’t see her like that. I couldn’t look into her eyes and know that I had hurt her. That I had disappointed her. That I ruined her love and lost her respect for me.
The boy who promised he would never hurt her.
The boy who swore he would always protect her.
The boy who vowed he would never let anything happen to her.
That same boy was me.
I was the reason she was bawling.
I was the reason she was hurt.
I was the reason she was broken.
She knew the truth. It had finally caught up to me… I shattered her illusion that I was hers. I ruined the one good thing I had in my life. The girl that owned my heart was bleeding out for me in a way that I had never seen before. The house was no longer our safe place.
I had brought my hurricane with me…
I couldn’t risk the possibility of losing her permanently if I walked in there and admitted my truths. She wouldn’t love me anymore, she wouldn’t look at me the same anymore, and she wouldn’t be mine anymore.
My brown eyed girl.
The girl that I had loved all of my life.
The same girl that I would love for the rest of my life.
I gave her the only comfort I could in her moment of despair. I turned around and left. I walked down the stairs and got into my truck. I turned the engine on and drove my sorry ass home. I took a shower and never once looked at myself in the mirror. I pretended that nothing changed. That I didn’t cause her pain, and that she didn’t know the truth. That I didn’t see her sobbing and that she wasn’t even bawling to begin with. That we were still just best friends, and that she was my girl and I was her boy.
My Half-Pint and her Bo.
It was better than knowing…
I ruined us.
