Complicated by Kristen Ashley


When small town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn’t be stronger, but the timing couldn’t be worse. Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids, and himself, is his only priority. Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her ...

    5 Gum Drop stars! Kristen Ashley fans rejoice! If you’re looking for a KA book that will give you the same type of feels as her Burg series, pick up Complicated and give it a listen. KA is one of my favorite authors, and I’m a complete audio whore (I’ve listened to over 30 this year alone) so when I heard she was releasing an audio exclusive, I one clicked that baby on release day. For it being a longish audio, it didn’t take me much time...

    5 Complicated Stars - ❤ Audible Review HERE ❤Ok I am going to be totally Honest, I might be a little bias because I love most everything Kristen Ashley writes. Sometimes I have to read a book 1 time and love it sometimes 2 or more.This was a 1 and done for me. I loved it. I love the relationship Hixon has with his kids, with the community. I just loved Hixon. Greta has not had an easy life but she never lets it get her down not once. She does...

    Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books✮✮✮ 4 STARS ✮✮✮ Whenever we get a new Kristen Ashley story I know what to expect. I've never been wrong so far and I've read more than half of her books. Admittedly, it can get boring but I'm not reading them back to back so it's always a treat when I finally get around reading another one.I listened to the audiobook of this story and I have to say, while the male narrator was fabulous I wasn't a big fan ...

    Well HOT DAMN this was good! I will keep this review short and sweet because as much as I LOVE AUDIO READS, it makes it difficult to highlight quotes or document the journey (which we all know how much I LOVE to do!)! Complicated is exclusively available on Audible and when I stumbled upon this beauty I could not have been more excited to gorge on another delicious KA read!!!! And believe me when I say this read is a perfect blend of all the thin...

    "Babe, you agreed to complicate it. You might as well give it all it's worth." My adoration for Kristen Ashley's audiobooks truly knows no bounds. I own every single one and I listen to them repeatedly. There's nothing that brings more peace and contentment to this reader than revisiting my favorite KA stories as narrators bring them from page to life. With that said, I think an entirely different reading experience is granted through an audioboo...

    “You don’t make a man what he’s not. You find the man you want and stand beside him no matter what.” Small town romances are my ultimate weakness. There’s something so irresistible about a powerful love story being set against the backdrop of a quaint little community in which everybody knows everybody, and its many intermingled lives rolling along so close to one another, that we get to know much more than just two of its residents. I...

    4.5 starsI wasn’t sure what I was supposed to think when I found out that Kristen Ashley wrote a book exclusively for Audible. I thought it was a nice marketing strategy – but didn’t plan on buying it. And then I saw that lonely credit on my Audible balance and I thought – ok whatever. CLICK!!!!Thank You for Shopping at Audible!!!!Yeah, I bet you liked that!!!Anyway, I was in the middle of listening to the latest John Sandford novel ‘Go...

    3 Complicated Stars!! Complicated starts out with a Greta, a hairdresser and lounge singer and Hix, the town Sheriff hooking up one night. Hix immediately regrets it and comes to the conclusion that his getting involved with Greta would be a mistake, feeling it’s too soon after his divorce. But, because they live in a very small close-knit town, their hook-up spreads like wildfire and reaches his ex-wife, children, co-workers, neighbors.........

    4 1/2 "Complicated" Stars!This book is very "old school" KA, IMO. It could easily fit into the COLORADO MOUNTAIN series or THE 'BURG series. Hixson is very much so a KA alpha with just a very small touch of the jackass that they are sometimes prone to be. I liked him quite a bit. Greta is very much so a KA quirky loveable female that you like but shemaaay work your nerves just a touch. But overall you still like her and you're happy she gets her ...
  • Raine
    I really enjoyed this audiobook. It was a little weird not being able to read the book and I had to listen to everything. Very strange for me as I am a visual person. I'm not even sure how to provide how many pages this audiobook would convert to for my challenges. I did enjoy this book, though the female narrator really made Greta all breathless and breathy like she was an airheaded bimbo or something. And I'm not too thrilled that KA has Greta ...

    REVIEWED BY JENN4.5 STARS*THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE AUDIO BOOK*Ashley does it again! Complicated is classic KA! There was so much to like about this story, I’m not even sure where to start. It had all of the elements I love in Ashley’s stories. Broody, but sweet alpha male, and a take-no prisoners’ woman, who doesn’t need a man to be happy and is confident in herself. Throw in some great kids, a bitchy ex-wife, a brother who has suffered an...

    Been a while since I read a book from Kristen Ashley and seeing that this was an exclusive release as an audio book I was eager to see what all the fab reviews were all about.Hix Drake is the recently divorced town sheriff. He is a dedicated father to his three children and fiercely protective of the people in his Nebraskan town. The thing about living in a small town is that everybody knows everyones business and that can be both a blessing and ...
  • Jacqueline
    In fairness, this was my first proper audiobook and so that might've affected my enjoyment of this.I listen aloud to books all the time, but that's just the kindle robot voice, not a real person. The thing that creeped me out with this was the guy doing the woman's voice - it made her sound like something between a woman with an eighty a day smoking habit and a man in drag. I'm a visual reader and that really influenced my perception of Greta. So...
  • Bev
    This is definitely more old style KA thankfully, which could've slotted easily right in to the Burg or CM series. A small town romance that meandered through the book full of family, friends and a tiny bit of suspense thrown in. I like that the story, once Hix got his head out of his arse, was focussed on them and the building of their relationship.
  • Camille
    DNF at 83%How does a woman write a misogynistic book that features female characters who would do anything for a man, including deeming themselves wrong for demanding respect and treatment in accordance with them having some (temporary) dignity. Okay, really, even with an exclusive audiobook and much improved editing, this remains a KA title. Her characters are still rubbish.
  • *~* Susie
    This was not my first audiobook, so I already knew I wasn't a fan. I find the narrators voices distracting, especially when switching from female to male and vice versa. The breathy female narrator in this case really put me off. As far as the story goes, I liked it, but didn't love it. Too much focus on Hix and Hope's relationship, not enough on Hix and Greta. The crime/mystery element added nothing to the overall story in my opinion. There were...

    Complicated is the story of - "Hixon Drake, the sheriff of a small town in Nebraska, a man who just endured a divorce he didn’t want, is trying to rebuild his life, make a new home for his children and find his footing in a place he’s been for years but it never felt right. So when he meets Greta Dare, a woman who could be the woman of his dreams, the timing couldn’t be worse. If that isn’t enough, suddenly he has to find the man who comm...

    LOVED this book so much!!! I wasn't sure what to expect with this only being released on audio at first but it was fantastic! The narration was perfect and the story captivating and sexy! Greta and Hix were perfection together! This is one of my favorite KA books ever and I can't wait to buy this in print when it comes out. Highly recommend!
  • Bj
    4.5 "Gum Drop & Sheriff Smokey" Stars! A classic Kristen Ashley styled romance with a delicious alpha hero. I also love how KA is not afraid to pen romances with "older" couples (in this case 38 and 42), including a father who brings 3 teenagers to the relationship with him. Another lesson KA brings us twice over in this story is not to take ending a relationship lightly as once you've taken the genie out of the bottle its rare that it will ever ...
  • Jenneal
    I love KA. Like, 'have all her books and relisten over and over again' love her. But I'm not an automatic 5 star fan. There are a few (just a few) books of hers that just didn't work for me. This one was middle of the road. I'll explain, but this review will definitely contain a few !!!SPOILERS!!! so scroll on by if this isn't your thing.*I'm not sure I read/listened to the same Hero as everyone else did. He was NOT alpha. He was my biggest obsta...

    2.5 stars - It was OK/I liked itComplicated is an audio only release for the first six months. My review is based on the audio version I listened to.AUDIOI am a regular audio book listener and I relisten regularly to other Kristen Ashley books that I enjoy. With the odd exception, I typically first read the written version of a book before listening to the audio version. Having to swap my usual methodology meant I listened more actively than I us...
