Review: Complicated Parts-Book 2 by Ashley Jade

5 STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Ashley Jade is back and she's pushing boundaries we didn't know we had. I have a new favorite slow burn couple. Is couple the right word? Let's say I have a new favorite slow burn series! Complicated Parts is going to have you questioning your views on sexuality and love and lust and hate and want and need. Basically, you'll question everything.

We met Preston and Kit in the Complicated Hearts duet. There are a few things we know for certain about these two. 

He's a gambler. 
He's a player.
He's Asher Holden's little brother. 

She's a lesbian. 
She's heartbroken. 
She's Breslin's best friend. 

They were never meant to be more than two ships passing in the night--or day--but a dying grandmother, assholes, and one psychotic girlfriend continue to bring these two together. 

Picking up where Complicated Parts-Book 1 ends, you are thrown right back into the fray and the crazy that we've come to know and love. 

Ashley Jade knows how to build a world that I never want to leave. 
She knows how to make me fall for the asshole of the story. 
She also knows how to leave me with more questions than answers. 

"Some people are more like Origami...we fold, bend, and change shape. We find a way to adapt when life throws us curveballs.
But at the end of the day...we're still paper. Still fragile."

Preston and Kit are explosive. They are nothing like you expect. When you pick up romance, you think hearts and flowers. Ashley Jade isn't a hearts and flowers kind of author. Which makes her amazing. Preston and Kit's story will drag you in and hold you there. 

Ashley Jade brings two people together, puts them in unthinkable circumstances and then leaves them to deal with the aftermath. But tragedy--or any stressful, life altering event--can pull two people together like nothing else and Preston and Kit have had their fair share of bad shit happening to them. And that connection, that bond, that basic need for survival has them finding each other in the darkest and most desperate of times. It's how they handle those times when the pull is too much that keeps you reading. 

The tension.
The passion.
 The unknown. 

The very simple fact that Kit is a lesbian is what makes this so complicated and difficult and completely different from anything I've ever read. Kit is a lesbian. It is such a part of her identity that she can't even imagine being with a man. She's not attracted to men, she never has been. Preston is no exception to this rule. The rule is there for a reason. 

I see parts of him no one else wants to. The parts he doesn't want anyone to see.

Or is it. What happens when you start questioning your very soul? The very thing you know for sure about yourself? What do you do when friendships are rocky, relationships aren't what you thought, and you can't even rely on the one thing you know to be true? 

Knowing this isn't your typical romance, I still want you to read it. I want you to go in with an open mind and an open heart. I want you to go in AFTER reading book one. I do NOT want you skipping around. If you do, you'll be beyond lost. Preston and Kit deserve your time. They deserve the love and the care that they desperately need to navigate these uncharted waters. 

"I don't want you to be anyone but you."
