Kit and Preston's story is the Complicated Parts and the two of them are so dynamic, it turned into a three-book series. However, while it's still new adult, it's different than Complicated Hearts (it's a slow burn, for obvious reasons.) But I think you'll fall in love with them both (personality, they're my favorite characters I've ever written.)
The first two books are out now. <3
Thanks so much for reading. (less)

Forget complicated, this love story is a fucking mess by no exaggeration. This duet will sucker punch you with all the pain and suffering that these poor darlings will endure before they can finally be happy. A conclusion of love, acceptance and finally trust above all.

In Complicated Hearts Book 2 (as this cannot be read on its own), the love triangle that is Landon, Asher and Breslin has come to light. And nobody is happy with that revelation. How do three people that have

She gets me every single time…right in the heart!

I ran the gamut of emotions while reading this one. I laughed, cried, yelled, and nearly through my kindle more times than I can share. However, I can’t say I wasn't warned. The author said things were going to get complicated and that’s exactly wha

Complicated Hearts book two is the continuation to the story of Breslin, Landon, and Asher. This part of the story is NOT simple by any means. If I could compare it to something it would be math. There are problems that need to be solved. There's answers that you will sometimes get wrong, and honestly at times the relationships and teams feel confusing AF. You won't like it ALL the time. Sometimes you will be mad at the story. The thing is, like in math once you finally fit all the right pieces ...more

Breslin, Asher and Landon have an unconventional relationship but they try to make it work because of love. It’s not easy. There’s tension and jealousy because Breslin and Asher have history. I enjoyed how they struggled and also how hard they fought to make their relationship work cause they truly did love and needed each other in their lives. It’s difficult and emotional. Their chemistry and scenes together were hot as hell. I really liked Asher and Landon but I had my issues with B

Part 2 picks right where 1 left off. These three are perfect together. They have so many issues that you can’t help but love them.

If I had to pick a favorite. It would be Landon. I love the sexy nerd!!

"I guess this situation just got even more complicated then."...I lean down until my lips are ghosting over his ear. "Because I'm not only fighting for her now. I'm fighting for the both of you."

Gaaaahhh....There is no #TeamLandon, #TeamBreslin, or #TeamAsher anymore....there is only #TeamComplicated. If after reading this half of the duet, you don't completely fall for all three, you need your head checked. No one, and I mean no one does beautifully broken characters like this Author and I read

On and on it goes, I felt like it'd never end. At one point I finally hit what I thought was the drama's climax only to realize I was only 40% through the book! 40 freakin %! And you know, since the new drama has to top the previous one it keeps getting more and more ridiculous. The characters keep facing the same inner demons throughout the entire book, nothing seems to ever improve and they might as well have been walking in circles throughout the entire book. Wow. ...more

A beautifully written book full of angst

When I read the first book. my heart broke for Breslin and I am normally very picky about female characters in a book, but Breslin I just got right away and connected with her. I actually liked her more than the two male characters in the book. Again, another thing that normally doesn't happen for me.

Complicated Hearts is a very fitting title because my feeling for this book were very complicated through out. Ashley Jade writes so beautifully, I was so su

This is book two so make sure you read book one first. Book one ended in a cliffhanger so I couldn't wait to jump into this story.

As I loved book one my expectations were pretty high for book two. I needn't have worried as Ashley Jade did not disappoint me. She gave me so much more.

I sat down to read to read a few pages. I should have known from book one that it would be unputdownable. I ended up reading this in one sitting. The twists and turns had me in a tizzy. I certainly didn't see them

This book. Oh, my, God! I'll try to express myself with more words, but I'm having a hard time rolling all my emotions into sentences. I finished this book yesterday and was at a loss for words. I feel like this story, these characters embedded themselves into my heart. I loved every single word.

“You gonna fight for her?” I ask, fearing the answer. The silence between us is as deep as the Pacific before he grinds out, “Yes.” He props himself up on his elbows and the muscle in his jaw works. “

Desperate situations require Desperate Measures. This highly anticipated read of 2017 was much needed to provide a closure to the readers left hanging by book 1. Ashley doesn't dissappoint in this section of the story. The Queen of Angst lives up to her reputation if creating an epic fuckfest , which i really enjoyed.
Breslin is still stuck between Asher and Landon. Her heart conflicted and twisted. No idea how she will solve this puzzle of her life.

I had too many emotions reading this duet. There is a lot of angst. I never read a book that made me feel too many things at the same time. I went blind when I chose this reading. With a cleared and opened mind, unprejudiced. Is the best way to read this kind of themes.

I loved these guys. But my favorite is Landon. He is everything! I loved him! Is the wise guy, cared for others, and gave the best of himself. Asher is the kind of love and hate guy here. Sometimes I wanted to hug him, but also s

Oh there was some complications

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. However in Complicated Heart there was nothing likable about Breslin. She was whiny, indecisive and was downright cruel to Asher. Yes, I get it he hurt you but to know that he still cares about you and you constantly mean to him without giving him a chance to explain what happen three years ago was just infuriating to read. While reading I was more interested in growing relationship between Asher and Landon. Even with
Okay, so I ship Landon and Asher hard! HARD! So in the beginning of this I was just annoyed that Breslin was getting in the way - like man, stop whining about everything and go back to Europe! lol.

In saying that, I really hoped I’d come to like her.

Landon takes a deep breath. “Cliff notes version is that Becca’s been cheating in Kit.”
Kit mumbled something between sobs and Breslin wraps her arms tighter around her. “That fucking bitch.”
I take a step closer to her. “Tell me about it. I knew she

I'll admit I was a disbeliever in this story when I first heard about it. But Ashley was bound and determined to win me over. It's not a genre that I enjoy reading, at all. Because of her determination, she hooked me with the first book. The characters where embedded in my heart. It blew my ever loving mind.

Then it ended it with a cliffhanger, and I could not wait to get my hands on the second part of Breslin, Asher, and my boy Landon's story.

Then she started book two. And I had the pleasure of

Hmmm I'm not sure how I feel about this one.

This book is hard for me to review because I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand I liked it and on the other hand I didn't.
With the first book I really enjoyed Asher and Landon and I felt something building, but with this book I feel like that connection was slowly going away.

Well that was...melodramatic. I had to know how it ended so I kept going but honestly? The last half was one dumb secret or lie that felt so contrived, it didn’t even make sense. I was going to give 4 stars even though it was driving me nuts that Asher wouldn’t just tell Breslin the truth. But then it was one car accident after another school shooting after an illicit affair with a minor drama after another. I ended up laughing! The first book was really good but by the end of this one I didn’t ...more

There are no words to describe how much I loved this book!! It is a perfect book that will certainly keep you in that grey area, making you re evaluate connections. Sometimes you just connect to a persons soul and it's not easy to let go, no matter how hard you try.

I absolutely adored Breslin, she's such a contradiction. She was so fierce and strong but, at the same time so incredibly fragile and vulnerable. She thought she was broken beyond repair, and your heart will shatter for her at certain

3.5 Triad Stars

A well written story in which, I enjoyed certain aspects more than others. I didn't like how Asher's "secret" from Breslin was omitted for so long. It played into unnecessary drama, that made me resent Breslin's character more than I should have. I love a good plot twist, and there was one I definitely didn't see coming, reveled by Kyle, towards the end. All I can say is "daddy," was an effing sicko!

After Book One in this series I was eagerly anticipating Book Two....(OK that is a total understatement...I was desperate for it) and HOLY HELL it did not disappoint. Sometimes it's hard to figure out exactly what makes a book great, but in this case it's easy....a great story and three amazing characters. I loved the journey this book took me on, I loved the ups and downs, the things I saw coming and the things I never expected (actually..those parts were my favorite). I loved the struggles a ...more

BOOK 2 picks up where book 1 ended, with the catastrophic revelation that left every character reeling- and left me devastated. UGH, my heart hurt so bad for them. Ashley so brilliantly has created characters who are uniquely flawed- but who have hearts and emotions that resonate with us- so we both are frustrated by them and their inability to just confront their “ish” while we are also empathizing with each and everyone one of them. They are their own villains as this is a story where these t
