It's Complicated (Awkward Love, #1)

They call him the Anaconda, and I'm pretty sure it isn’t because he likes snakes. Nick Jenson is my neighbor. My hot, oh-so-sexy, very-well-equipped neighbor that I’d spend hours watching from the safety of my bedroom window. I saw lots of things I probably shouldn’t have. Sometimes I’d touch myself, imagining it were his hands roaming over my body instead of my own. I had just one mission—to find out if the rumors were true. Then one d...

    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}IT’S COMPLICATED is a super fun and steamy tale of forbidden romance between a young woman and her father’s best friend. There’s very little angst and definitely a case of insta-love between the main characters but still, I enjoyed this guilty pleasure of a read. From the beginning of the story, I knew that it was going to deliver on the steam but that the plot would be a little silly a...

    This is a first for me, others I've read by this author I have LOVED but this one just wasn't for me, I just couldn't connect with the story, or the characters and found myself skimming parts and squirming in others where it just came across to unrealistic which made for uncomfortable reading, keep in mind this is just my opinion others have really enjoyed this
  • Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends)
    I usually LOVE this author's books but this one was just OK for me. I found the whole penis size and having to get stitches a bit silly. Also, the plot felt underdeveloped (especially the whole stalker thing that just came out of left field). On top of that, I HATED the heroines father and the OTT violent way he acted. There were just a lot of little annoyances overall that added up to making this one just an OK read for me.That said, I did love ...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKI love any kind of taboo romance so when I saw the "He's also my father's best friend" line in the blurb it made me sit up and take notice. I loved that forbidden part of the story thrown in and it took this book from just a hot story to something better with those stolen moments between Anna and Nick when no one was watching. So let's talk about the snake in the room for a second...Nick's giant dick. This could have...

    3.5 "Ooh, it's so BIG!!" stars What is it about stories about anacondas that I love so much? Yeah, I’m not talking about the snakes, people!! That anaconda was what drew me to the story but what developed between the characters is what kept me engrossed in this book.Anna has heard ALL of the rumors. Her next-door neighbor Nick is packing more than salami in his pants. Then Anna witnesses it for herself when she spies him out of her window. But ...

    Every once in a while we all crave that no apology, laugh out loud, cringe worthy story and It's Complicated gave you enough of that forbidden aspect to leave you wanting a bit more. Falling for your father’s best friend who also happens to be your next door neighbor? I was practically salivating at the unique ways they were going to hook up!! Being a widower and raising two young kids is not the easiest thing in the world. Getting back out ...

    Release Date: December 13, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance. Forbidden Romance. My Rating: 4 starsIt's Complicated by Missy Johnson is a FUN and SEXY forbidden romance. Being a huge fan of both of these things I knew I had to stop everything and read this one. Let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed! I wasn't expecting the age gap thing, or that fact that the object of Anna's affection was her fathers best friend, but I totally loved it!!! Fo...

    3.5 “Next Door Neighbor” Stars Funny, sexy and quick. It’s Complicated is the kind of story that you read in one sitting when you’re looking for a super sexy read that will leave a smile on your face but doesn’t take much time to read. ARC provided for honest review.
  • Sofia Lazaridou
    It’s Complicated by Missy Johnson is the first book in a new series. It's a funny short story with a little dose of drama. The only thing over the top was Nick's package. I wonder how he was able to hide that thing in his pants. Honestly, the story was good and funny. I never tried to take this story very seriously and that worked for me. The age gap wasn't a problem because Nick is in his late 30's and Anna in her early 20's. The age gap could...
  • Nikki
    ARC Honest ReviewQuick fun read, characters were relatable, it was nice to read about an “older” couple for a change instead of all the high school age series. Plus I’m always a sucker for a good inner thought dialog like Anna’s.
  • Lauren Mcclean
    This is the first book that I have read of Missy Johnson and I loved it. It was funny it some parts of the book. The characters you love from the start.Anna is one of the main characters and she is smart, kind, caring and very good-looking. She is 22 years old and lives with her father, her mother is no longer in the picture as she left when she was a baby but came back when she was 5 years old but soon realised that parenthood wasn’t for her. ...

  • Shannon Moore
    A quick and spicy read from Missy Johnson, releasing on December 13th. While this isn't my favourite MJ read to date, overall it's not a bad story. My issues (if you want to go as far as calling them that) more so had to deal with what I felt was a lack of any significant plot. Granted, I know it can be extremely difficult to try and fit everything you need into a novella, but I had hoped for something a little more substantial. I think others wo...

    This book was a good quick read that is defiantly a taboo relationship. Anna is a college student that still lives at home with her dad. However, when at the library she hears two other women talking about her neighbor, Nick Jenson. Well, after hearing them she has to know does he really have an anaconda in his pants. She will soon find out because her bedroom window is right across from his and he gives her a show without even knowing he is doin...
  • Nerdy Dirty & Flirty
    It's Complicated by Missy Johnson was a decent read. The story is about the taboo relationship between Anna and her next door neighbor Nick who is also her dad's best friend. I love the whole older man/younger woman forbidden storyline but this one felt a little generic. It was a hot sexy read but at times it came off stale and nothing popped out at me. I did love the foreplay between this couple. A couple of voyeuristic scenes that were sizzling...

    Anna and Nick are neighbors. Nick is a widower with 2 young kids. Anna is a college student, and she is attracted to Nick. They fight the attraction but it becomes futile, and they become involved. The story is sweet and loving with some twists but so worth reading.
  • Marah
    I received an ARC of It's Complicated by Missy Johnson in exchange for an honest review.I have to say that It's Complicated by Missy Johnson was a great read. I really loved the chemistry between Nick and Anna. I enjoyed their hot moments the most. Both Nick and Anna were well-developed characters. The beginning of their attraction was so funny. Let's just say Anna could be a little clumsy at times which made her an endearing person. Not to menti...

  • Becky Baldridge
    3.5 starsSometimes a low angst, fun and sexy read is just what you need for that quick escape from reality. It's Complicated fits that bill perfectly. This romance has a bit of the taboo of Dad's best friend while Nick isn't old enough to be a silver fox, there is a significant age difference for a little of the older man/younger woman trope as an added bonus. Nick and Anna do have good chemistry and they are both likable characters that you genu...
  • Anett Simonsen
    Don’t be afraid of the dick and read this book!So, let’s talk about the snake in the room for a second…Nick’s giant dick. This could have easily gotten ridiculous with the “oh no his penis is just so large” thing but it never did, and Anna’s BFF were just so much fun. There were times it made me giggle and times that it had me wanting some physical evidence of just how real it was. I really liked how it was all handled, no pun inten...
  • Athena Stephenson
    Sweet, sexy fast paced story about a young woman and her dads best friend. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book but the author did a really good job keeping it fun and flirty as opposed to creepy lol Their relationship moved a little quick but it seemed like they had a genuine connection and it was sweet to see it develop. The sex scenes weren’t over the top and the rumours surrounding his appendage were hilarious. 😆 The story...

    Just another daddy’s best friend romance? Hardly. This book is funny, quirky, sexy, and sensational! This is the kind of book you won’t want to put down. The characters are authentic, engaging, and real. They draw you right into the story and you just can’t help but become obsessed with their lives and relationships. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a passionate and compelling read. *I was given an ARC of this book a...
  • Becky Rendon
    It's Complicated is a naughty bit of fun. Missy Johnson known for her emotionally crippling stories decided to embrace the naughtier side with this series. Clearly it's complicated! The hot guy next door...The rumors...Her crush...Her Dad's Best Friend...Lots of complications add to the tension in this hotter than sin story. The intense chemistry that these two have could melt the cheese on a pizza...But it's only a bit of fun...right?
  • Kasey McCarthy
    I received this book as an ARC in return for honest review. The title of this book couldn't be more true. Imagine living in a smalltown and hearing rumors about your neighbor. He's not just your neighbor though because he's your dad's best friend. When Anna starts hearing rumors about people who have went quickly on date with Nick, she's curious. When Nick catches her checking him out from the window things get complicated. Will Nick make a move?...
