First here is a little about the book...
Evie's childhood friend Jay has always had her back. But college complicates things as Jay starts dating Evie's roommate Cynthia. Now, Evie spends her nights trying to sleep while Jay and Cynthia go at it like rabbits a few feet away!
Evie hates feeling like a third wheel and hates wishing it was her in Jay's arms even more. It doesn't help that Jay won't let Evie date or even hook up withoutinterfering and making sure everyone on campus knows that she's off limits.
Something has to give. Evie can't continue pining away for Jay, and Jay can't continue to act like he owns her when he won't so much as touch her. And worse of all, Evie can barely look Cynthia in the eye for fear she will know just how she feels about Jay.
Then one night shifts Evie, Jay and Cynthia into an web of love and deceit,tangling their hearts and forcing one of them to come to a compromise that will change all their lives.
Prepare yourself...There will be spoilers, spoilers, and more spoilers!!
I like Evie's character a lot. She is very likable and has a good head on her shoulders. She has loved her best friend Jay since they were kids, but thought that he would never love her back...until she finds out that she is completely wrong about this. Jay has really loved her all along. He can't stand the idea of her being with someone else and sets out to sabotage any other relationships--sexual or otherwise--that she tries to take part in.
BUT of course he has a totally beautiful girlfriend named Cynthia. He doesn't want to break up with Cynthia because he is afraid that it will hurt her feelings...
I want to smack him in his super attractive face. Like, for real. Who cares if you hurt her feelings?! Hurt them already!
I get that Jay doesn't want to be a bad person...but prolonging the situation just makes it worse.
BUT then something totally cray happens. Cynthia (Jay's girlfriend) approaches Jay and Evie with a proposition. She wants to have a joint relationship...
Jay thinks it is a fabulous idea. Which, I mean, DUH, of course he does. Thank the lord Evie has some sense and thinks it's ridiculous, but that doesn't stop her from agreeing to it!
I understand where she is coming from, I mean she wants the guy...but she is going to have to share him. I couldn't do it. Jay would be mine and there would be no if, ands, or buts about it. Unless he wanted me to remove his testicles by force...but of course that is different post for a different day... ;)
The book ends on a happy note, with the promise of more drama and craziness to come in the strange triangle relationship. I will definitely be picking up the next book. No doubt about it. Kenya pulls you into the story and makes you want to know more, no matter how f'ed up you might think the situation is she makes you believe that there is potential for anything and everything to work and fall apart all at once. I can't wait for the next installment. I hope that Jay comes to his senses and leaves Cynthia. I just can't wait to find out!!
With all of this being said--I give Complicated by You 4 stars!
