Review: It's Complicated by Kindle Alexander (Reservations #2)

Kindle Alexander fans and readers, rejoice! We finally have Julian's story, and the author's made the wait oh-so-worthwhile. I've been really intrigued by Julian Cullen over the span of a couple of books, and to have his journey towards his happily-ever-after in my hands had me giddy with excitement. If you're a longtime reader of Alexander's, then the guy Julian is paired with should be no surprise--the Marlboro Man, aka Beckett St. Clair. It's clear that Beckett has a thing for Julian, but is it reciprocated? Suffice it to say, It's Complicated is a title that's more than apt for these two and their love story.
This is the second book in the Reservations series, and while this features a completely different couple, I do think that reading the books in order allows for a more well-rounded experience, especially given that there are recurring characters from Reservations, the first book, and maybe even a character or two (or more) from the author's other books. But yes, this book is focused on Julian Cullen and Beckett St. Clair. There's flirting and romance and denial, as well as my forever go-to, angst. Oh, and sexual tension galore.
I don't want to go into detail because I don't want to spoil the book. What I will say is that this is a beautiful story. Julian was trying to survive day by day after what happened to him, but Beckett knew that the man he was falling for deserved to thrive. I liked Julian's tenacity and his refusal to be a victim, and I loved Beckett's patience and devotion. But Woofer? Him, I adored! It's not that complicated for me to award It's Complicated five stars.
