Complicated Creatures (Part One) by Alexi Lawless

This week I’ve been reading a new author for me – Alexi Lawless. This is a fast-paced romantic suspense which does not disappoint!

complicated creatures


What happens when curiosity becomes obsession? And when that obsession leads to an unstoppable journey you could never have imagined?

Luck is Jack Roman’s middle name— and Chicago is his Empire. He lives to work, loves to play, and makes no commitments. But when the mysterious S. Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, he’s immediately drawn to her, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations in the most dangerous parts of the world.

Intrigued by her self-possession, aroused by her incredible passion, and disarmed by a vulnerability she cannot hide, Jack pursues her into the nexus of her dangerous present and her enigmatic past. An entire world is revealed to Jack, where living for pleasure becomes fighting for survival. And the only woman he wants may be the one he cannot have…

COMPLICATED CREATURES is a mesmerizing, labyrinthine romantic suspense that will leave you wondering: Do you really want to know everything about the one you love?


Wow! What a pleasant surprise! Like a lot of the previous reviewers I wasn’t sure what to expect form this book but I was wrong to be wary. Complicated Creatures is a great read with some fabulous characters and impeccable writing!

Jack Roman has kept his adjoining penthouse empty for a long time now waiting for his brother to finally decide to move, but after so long he’s starting to give up hope. When his friend says he’s found the perfect neighbour for him, he finally gives the go ahead to give it to someone – besides S. Wyatt sounds like a decent enough guy.

Well that was until he found a gorgeous woman swimming in their shared pool – S. Wyatt, or rather Samantha Wyatt. His new neighbour was a woman! A very attractive one at that. As they get to know each other it becomes clear there’s a lot more to Sam than first meets the eye. She’s strong and completely badass – the kind of qualities we’re used to reading about in our leading man.

I won’t go into the story much more as I don’t want to give it all away but there are so many twists and turns in this book – such an amazing story! Fast paced, full of drama and hot as hell! I really loved Sam and her relationship with her team – so many great secondary characters in this book! Having Sam as the strong leading lady she is made for such an interesting dynamic and I really loved reading her story. As for Jack he’s pretty damn awesome too! Really loved the chemistry between these two.

So much more than just an ordinary romance; riddled with drama and suspense this is one captivating read from start to finish. And the cliffhanger! I can NOT wait for more!
