I don't think this is going to be a very long review because I honestly can't say much without giving away the story. I have loved these three people from their very first book and to be able to peek into their lives a few years down the road has been an honor. Jaxon, Chase and Emma are so busy in their lives with the club and the new club they are opening that they have been putting Emma second and it's taking a toll on the relationship. When Emma keeps a very important secret from the guys and ...more
A 'well I really didn't expect that!' scorching hot read.

Whilst this could very easily be read and enjoyed as a stand alone story, I do think that reading Infamous Love first would further enhance the pleasure. This book is what I would describe as quite gentle BDSM. Whilst there are menage scenes, spanking and other punishment, the kink play is not the main focus of the book and is fairly 'light' in feel. If you have read Infamous Love, or either of the Black Light Valentine books then, like

OH THIS BOOK!!! Livia Grant had me screaming "NO! NO?!?!" and shaking my Kindle after only reading the blurb at the beginning of this book. Again I repeat, Oh This Book! If you are not already a fan of the Black Light Series, I HIGHLY recommend you meet us at the roulette wheel - you will not be disappointed. ☆ Complicated Love is an amazing addition to a great series!

This is not your standard BDSM novel. This is a unconventional love story with real life themes that make it one of the most realistic and honest books I've read in a long time. This book catches up with Jaxson, Chase and Emma as they navigate a menage relationship. It's been a few years, so they are beyond the "honeymoon" phase. They are building another club in California, and things are rocky.

Emma may be the submissive in the family, but her character is strong and very real. This book explor

This book was a gut wrenching emotional maelstrom of fear, secrets, anger, jealousy, and love – especially love.

Without giving away any spoilers, I need to say that this story threw me into an emotional upheaval. I could empathize with each character and all they were feeling (even Emma’s father). And then, after some particularly soul rending tension, this talented writer inserted a tiny dash of humor, followed by some embarrassingly naughty sexual play. And then more play, until I was skillful

Complicated Menage for Emma, Jaxson and Chase

I was thrilled to read the story of Jaxson, Chase and Emma from Infamous Love. This starts right off showing us that the trio is now super busy trying to complete the West Coast versions of Runway and Black Light club. Emma isn't very happy but Jaxson and Chase are so busy, they haven't taken the time to try and figure out why, other than they have all been doing multiple tasks for opening the new facility on a very tight schedule. To add to the stres

If you read Valentines Roulette Redeux, then you know that ended in a sort of “cliffhanger.” We knew something was going on with Emma but couldn’t quite put our finger on it. Jaxson is expanding his empire with having a Runway West in California, also adding Black Light in Cali as well. Then you have them building a new home there for not only themselves but of entertaining. A lot to take on in such a tight window. It seems to be pulling Emma, Chase, and Jaxson apart. What once was a close nit l ...more

I couldn't wait for more of my favorite trio Jaxson,Chase, and Emma. They had me worried for them at first, but then my heart grew with more love for them. Jaxson with his romantic Dom heart had me smiling and crying at the same time. Chase and his compassion that showed when his Dom came out to play to help settle his Dom had my heart beating fast. Emma last but not least the strong, sweet, loving submissive that had me aggravated , but then proud when she stood up for herself and her Doms. I l ...more

One of the hardest reviews ever to write!! How is it possible to express how much I love this trio? So so hard, we have spoilers that I don't wanna share!!

So on that note, spoiler free review it is, cause I'd really hate for my reading to be spoiled!!
Jaxson, Chase and Emma, they have been through a lot, most of it in front of the public eye, so who could blame them for having a club or two where they could just be? What happens when life, love and work are pulling you in all different directions

For three years now the trio have travelled extensively,opened successfully clubs and have liked minded friends.
But now real life is catching up with them.
They are now opening two more clubs,they are under tremendous stress with timelines and a budget.
Plus the additional tensions of people who are not into their type of relationship.
It’s especially hard for Emma,living in California has her body issues returning.
Having to see and hear others flirting with Jax and Chase has her edgy and emotional

Follow up to Infamous Love the Black Light series prequel. Can be read and enjoyed as stand-alone, but so much better reconnecting to the characters I have loved in this series. Told in multiple POV with HEA. I loved this book, and I have loved all of the Black Light series books. This is about a MMF couple and does contain MF, MM, MFM, MMF as well as some BDSM D/s. They are in a committed relationship with no cheating. Jaxson, Chase, and Emma are opening a few new clubs in California and are un ...more

Wow, I loved this book! If you've followed this relationship through the books you would have witnessed them go from a new relationship (Infamous Love), through the Black Light books & now this. It is a book that could be read as a standalone but is so much better if you've followed their relationship. For an average size book, this story had so much emotion in it & yet it never felt rushed or out of place. These characters have to be 3 of my all-time favourites & while I don't know ...more

Livia has done a brilliant job with continuing the story of Jaxson, Chase and Emma. This book is complex, it had me wanting to reach through my kindle and grab the characters and ask what the hell they were doing. It made me feel, had me on the edge of my seat to see what would happen next in the twist and turns this trio experience. All of these, with being well written, balanced with the perfect amount of romance created a very enjoyable read.

Livia has done it again with continuing the story of Jaxson, Chase and Emma. The trio have a lot on their plate. Actually more than Jaxson and Chase know. Jaxson, ever the Dom is having issues. Self doubt is eating at him. They power through. I love this continuation of their story and it is not done. Cannot wait to see where life leads them next.

Jaxson, Chase and Emma have successful businesses in New York and Washington DC and now are opening a new dance club called Runway West along with a BDSM club in a renovated mansion. All are feeling the weight of the temporary move to California, with the tight schedule, hiring all the staff and mansion renovations. Emma is especially feeling that her men are being pursued by other people, including an attractive older TV personality and the designer for the new club and a PA that treats her lik ...more

Fantastic book

This is such a great story!! I have read the previous books in this series and loved all of them. The characters are so loving and in sync with each other that you (sigh) are wrapped up in their lives. Add some hot steamy sex scenes and this book is just awesome.

Another fun journey to the Black Light universe

I have read all the Black Light books. I appreciate the discussion of non traditional marriage. Reminds me of the discussions about gay marriage back before it was legal. So many series fun out of steam, but not this one. Like a family reunion, where you can catch up with cousins you don't see every week. Thanks, Livia, for a nice time and a fun read.

4.7 stars

I have loved Chase, Jaxson, and Emma since the beginning. My love for them continued to grow with the entire Black Light series. This book just made me love them even more. It was great to finally discover what was wrong with Emma which had been hinted at in the Valentine edition. It was also wonderful to see some of the other characters from that series make an appearance as well.

Life gets very complicated for Chase, Emma and Jaxson as they move on to their new ventures! Secrets and insecurities hit them from all sides as they struggle to keep up with new projects and plans, as well as new surprises. The opposition and challenges they faced were written so well, they made me want to hug all three of them and give them more reassurance. I loved the emotions and fears that ran like a thread through this amazing trio, and seeing how Chase and Jaxson step up their game to br ...more

Livia has done it again

Livia has taken my heart and made it go on a roller coaster ride again with her latest book. It is amazing the twists and turns she takes her readers on with these black light books. They are all so amazing. This one keeps you guess and jumping up and down doing a happy dance by the end of the book. I could not put it down. It was simply amazing. Well done.

I love this story. It's our favorite owners of black light opening black light west. Stress is high and on top of that there is a big secret someone is keeping. There's lots of love drama and of course domestic discipline. I love the world Livia Grant have created. This is a standalone but intermingled with the other black light books makes it all the better and of course there is a HEA.

I fell in love with these three in their first book and have fell deeped and deeper for them everytime they have come up in the black light books but this one just blew me away!!! I now need to go back and read all of their books all over again I love them so much.
The Black light novels are written superby by all the repective authors and I have to say the valentine roulette books had been my favourites up until now!!!! I LOVE THIS BOOK!
I hope there are lots more books in the black light serie

This novel is just so sweet.

It is obvious that for a fair number of romance novels that statement comes as little surprise, as that is what we expect when reading romance. A couple meets, they find themselves attracted to each other, there is some intervening plot tension, they overcome it, and then there is our cherished Happily Ever After. We expect those things, and we more often than not get just that (when appropriate – dark romance and other genres of that nature notwithstanding), and we’r

This is part of a series that included multiple couples and many of the books in it are stand-alone but this one is a direct sequel to Infamous Love. I haven't read that one yet, because I didn't realize that when I started this one. I have read another in the series so I knew who the three main characters were, and the plot was simple enough that the explanations given were enough to understand what was going on without having read the first.

So I want to start by saying I love this relationship

It’s no secret that I love to read menage. I don’t know what it is, but it always has my undivided attention. Not only is there suspense, some thrill or something going on with the trio(s), but I usually find that the love scenes are rather enticing.
Livia Grant is a new author to me. I see and have read some great reviews on her other books, that I was intrigued when I saw the cover to Complicated Love. A hot trio! Definitely up my alley and knew that I was not going to be disappointed.

I have followed this series from the start and Complicated Love is another fantastic reason why one clicking this is a must for me as Livia Grant once again knocks it out of the park and has me reading this long into the night. The latest tale of Jaxon, Chase, and Emma is certainly not something (in my opinion) you can read without having really read the previous books as although it would be an ok stand alone, it makes a great follow-on of the characters from Blacklight that we have all come to ...more

I've been waiting for this book to come out since forever. It was definitely worth every second of the wait. When I got it in my hand, I just couldn't read it fast enough. I had to stop doing everything else until I could finish it.

Emma, Jaxson, and Chase are all in California, prepping like crazy to get Runway and Black Light West up and running. Jax, in a fit of insanity, decided that they should have a really tight turnaround for opening. It's making everyone crazy. To make things even worse
