ARC Review by Pam

Pam's Rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️ 

"Mia Ryan was on the path to make all her dreams come true. Her life was everything she wanted it to be; until one fateful night changed everything – leaving her broken and without direction. Nearly a year later, she still has little faith in anyone or anything. Desperate to reclaim her life’s ambition, she takes an unexpected offer that promises to solve all her problems. But as Mia moves forward, she’s faced with obstacles she couldn’t have foreseen. The biggest of them lies within the mystery of Ethan Fitzgerald; a man who affects her like no other, but who she should avoid pursuing, at all costs. 

On a mission himself, Ethan Fitzgerald didn’t care who he pissed off on his road to fulfill his mother’s dying wish. He relied on himself, and was closed off to the world around him – until Mia Ryan walked through his door. Normally one to avoid messy emotions, Ethan’s world is turned upside down by Mia, and he can’t seem to get enough of her.

There are lines you can cross that will change the course of your life forever …


Mia is feeling that her life has not purpose since she has lost all hopes of ever having a career in journalism again. Thanks to her ex-boyfriend that she was madly in love with sabotaged her work with the university paper. A chance meeting and possible prayer she has been looking for. What she doesn’t realize it she has just signed a deal with the devil…

Mia finds herself working at F. F. & Sweeney & Company but her real task is to be a mole for the paper that is planning on writing a story to take the business down. What Mia didn’t bank on when she accepted this job was the breathtakingly handsome executive Ethan Fitzgerald. From the first time she laid eyes on the man, he has caused feeling and emotions she didn’t think she would ever feel again and much more. Her plans to stay far away from Ethan slowly become harder and harder when he apparently has a different plan.

Ethan is such a mystery. He is closed off and distant when he is working and pulls off the unapproachable business man very well. It is apparent early on that he has taken notice in Mia and takes her by surprise on taking her from the office when she is having a very bad day. Slowly he starts to show her parts of him that exist outside the office which only draw her in closer. As much as Mia is falling for this man she can tell he is keeping things from her making him very dangerous to her.

When push comes to shove Mia finds herself between a rock and a hard place. Ethan or her friends. How will she proceed? If she tells him her secrets will he leave her or blow her cover? Are his feelings strong enough to forgive her for her secrets? Where will they go from here…?

I felt a strong connection with the characters from the very beginning. Mia has the ability to be a strong confident woman if she can work through her past and finally take that step forward. She is blessed with solid friendships to help her along the way with Bri, Trey, Jackson and Shane, her roommates. Ethan is so very secretive and disconnected but he seems to be honest and open when he is with Mia. I hope that he is being truthful with his feelings and not just using Mia as a pawn to get what he wants. I like the suspense of the story and found myself reading just one more chapter to see if anything happened. Before I knew it I was at the end of the book only to have to wait for more.

I can’t wait to read Complicated to see what is next for Mia and Ethan. Will they stand strong together or have the secrets of the past torn them apart? Will they get their HEA.
