Reardon Lewis is a small-town lawyer in Cherry Springs, the place where he and his cousins grew up. With the body of a Viking and the heart of a geek, Reardon is loyal to his family and indispensable to his community. The only thing missing in his life is love, and it just so happens that the one woman he has always wanted but could never have has just moved to Cherry Springs. Chloe Zahn is a successful businesswoman, a city girl, and a single mom. The last thing she ever planned to do was move to a small town, but that’s the choice she’s made to bring her son closer to his dad. The only problem? The Lewis family and the obvious disdain they have for her. The more time Reardon and Chloe spend together, the harder it is to fight their growing feelings for each other. Things between them have always been Too Complicated, but Reardon knows this may be his last chance to win over the woman he's always dreamed of, complications be damned. Too Complicated is the second in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.

Warning before you start reading this book - while it is technically a stand alone, you really need the back story contained in Too Tempting (book 1) for some of the issues here to make sense.
I enjoyed getting to know Chloe a little bit better here and liked Reardon, I also really liked them together. I just wish we had gotten to spend more time with them.
My biggest complaint about Too Tempting is also a issue here, the story rocks along doing well and then suddenly sprints for the finish line, wrapping things up so quickly that a lot of details get left behind and not shared.
Had the pacing of the book been my only issue, this probably would have been a 3 1/4 to 3.5 star read, but I had one other big issue, Gabe and Zoey (the main characters in book 1) were too large of a presence in Chloe and Reardon's story. While I expected them to be strong secondary characters, given the length of the book, we spent almost as much time with Gabe and Zoey as we did with Rear and Chloe.
I wish this book had been a little bit longer and more focused on the main characters. I am still curious about the other Lewis cousins and want to read more of the series, I am just a little disappointed in this series compared to other work I have read from Ms. Lopez.
