Ashton Locke has had a thing for Keiko Jarrett since college. So when she proposes adding friends with benefits to the mix, he’s intrigued, but wary. Sure, he’s always wanted her, and is definitely not ready to settle down with anyone, but what happens if one of them crosses the line?

Keiko is ready to take her flirty friendship with Ashton to the next level of hot. But she never bargained for feelings to intrude and cause complications. She laughed at Ashton’s hesitation and promised she’d remain heart-whole.

Some promises are meant to be broken and as Keiko and Ashton’s “benefits” bleed in all aspects of their lives, Keiko needs to convince Ashton that love is worth the risk

My Rating:  4 stars

I had a good time with It’s Complicated.  Friends with benefits is always an “ify” thing whether it’s real life or in a book.  Sometimes it works out well and other times it falls so flat.  Keiko and Ashton definitely made it work for me… and their relationship really is quite complicated.  What might have been a steamy friends to lovers story turns into a complication of suspense, erotica, love and danger.  So, yeah, it’s complicated.

I liked Ashton and Keiko individually and together.  She’s bold and goes after what she wants, even when she’s unsure of herself.  He’s convinced that love is not a thing for him but discovers with the right person there are always possibilities.  I liked the world Ms Prince has created, the little touches and twists that take a story from good to exciting.  I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more… and you should be, too.
