What does a Hollywood Actress – with a leaked sex tape – have in common with a pizza delivery boy? Absolutely nothing.
She is one hot mess…
A walking, talking, Hollywood cliche, Falcon James is hiding out in the middle-of-nowhere Louisiana, on a mission to clean up her image, clean up her personal life, and avoid any kind of scandal. At all costs.
He is one hot single dad…
The last thing Jeremy needs is someone interfering with the life he’s built in the quaint country town he grew up in. Between working odd jobs to pay the bills, the town’s loose-lipped gossips, and raising his impressionable young daughter, something is bound to give. But when one routine pizza delivery turns into an unlikely friendship, Jeremy knows he’s in over his head.
With the bright lights of Hollywood beckoning Falcon back, how can they keep their feelings in check? Feelings that just make everything…really effing complicated.
Gosh I’m not sure how best to describe how I feel about this book. I’m going to be honest this was my first time reading a book by this author. The blurb, Hollywood actress, sex tape a few pizza delivery boy caught my attention, I’m glad I took a chance. This book was amazeballs, like seriously we have baby momma drama, tabloid drama, paparazzi, laugh out loud moments, crawfish, a little girl who isn’t afraid to outshine the boys on the softball field and some steamy sex. The title Really Fu*cking Complicated perfectly describes this story.
The relationship between Jeremy and Falcon was not made of glitz and glamor, nope this had a realistic feel to it. Being in the public’s eye is hard and the author shows the audience how hard Falcons life is albeit fictional we see the struggles and the need to be normal. Jeremy’s life is hard some of it I blame on him but I easily related. You want to do what’s best for your child and for him his daughter Charlene needs to go first. In order to give a child the best you work numerous jobs. Give your child the moon. Agree to live your life the only way your manipulative ex won’t make trouble for you. Never once thinking about yourself and what will happen when you realize you want more. Jeremy was like every parent I know in life, the struggles are real.
Jeremy and Falcon’s relationship wasn’t a quick one. It developed gradually which also added to my love of this book. They both have crazy lives and need to find a balance in their complicated lives. This book was refreshing just as it was entertaining. I enjoyed the easy flow of writing and the touch of reality the author continued to show through out the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a realistic feel of a book, it will make you cry, scream and laugh.
