I realized it didn’t hurt to say I loved her anymore. On this day the sky seemed bluer, the lake clearer, the trees a deeper shade of green.

Most people have had friends and relationships that were more challenging than others, more demanding, complicated, more difficult to maintain, tolerate, accommodate, etc.; and like me, maybe you had wondered if they were worth the extra effort. In my case, some were and some weren’t. I’ve bailed on more than a few and I am not ashamed to acknowledge that fact as some people are worse than vampires and not worth the donation of my blood or time. But luckily for the people in this story, their connections were worth the extra complications and persistence. I’ve now read all three books in this series and Complicated Relationships was the more angsty and melancholy of the three as the characters were saddled with considerable drama and trauma, the type no one wants to happen to anyone, friend or foe. As a teen, Tristan had shouldered crushing family responsibilities that most would have walked away from, although he wasn’t perfect. I have enjoyed Ms. McClung’s comfortable and easy writing style. Her storylines were emotive, entertaining, amusing, steamy, effortless to follow, and featured relevant issues in an insightful and observant manner. Each book involved all the characters from the previous installments while also possessing strong legs and capable of standing alone. I appreciated that as I despise cliffhangers and reveled in the continuation of events and involvement of the endearing and delightfully sweet characters from previous books.

Her first book was a means of therapy for her as it enabled her to escape reality for a
while during a difficult transition in her life.
