Enhance your purchase
But there are rules.
He needs to be a stranger and someone who won't judge me if I can't cross the finish line.
Luke Sorenson, one of the most famous soccer players in the world, isn't meant to be that man. He's the guy I grew up next door to. The man who broke my heart ten years ago, then moved across the country and never looked back.
He also happens to be the one person in the world I can't stand.
But as my best friend points out, he's the best option.
Besides, it's only for one night. What can possibly go wrong?
The last person I expect to see when I walk into a random corner bar is Olivia Brighton, the one woman I let slip through my fingers when I chased my dream a decade ago.
Not only do I run into her again, but I offer to help her out with her dilemma, and she accepts.
It's supposed to be a one-time occurrence. One shot to prove my skills in bed.
But that one shot turns into a deal, which morphs into something neither of us predicts.
One thing's for certain—everything is about to get simply complicated.

These two knew each other very well 10 years ago for a short time but nothing but sadness and hurt was evident at that time. Explanations were necessary before 10 years happened. A star soccer player and a female mechanic.......who'd have thought? Loved this , thank you!
Luke is swoon worthy!!!
I loved how Olivia wanted to keep things on the up and up and not get attached!!!
I love the story and how the author told it so well!
Im usually drawn into her MC books, but indont think theres a trope by her i wont read!!! Need more!!!
This book may have had a few complications between the two main characters Olivia and Luke, but they definitely had some serious chemistry between them also. You kinda get a sense of what happened in their past as teens but of course there is always two sides to a story. Each character has their own take on what went down as teens and their meet up ten years later gives new meaning to the word Complicated. This is a insta connection between the characters but also a push/pull chemistry throughout the story.
Olivia, is a witty and sarcastic character at times but also has a vulnerability that she tries to hide. She has a hate to love vibe going on with Luke when they agree on how to help Olivia finally get her big "O" in the sack. You get glimpses of what her and Luke were like as teens but never the full story until she finally confronts him about it when she finally admits to not only liking him but maybe even falling in love with him. She definitely has a feisty side to her and probably more so because she is a female mechanic in a predominantly male driven job. She holds her own and her family dynamics are fun to watch as the story progresses.
Luke is a character that seems to be an eager and willing participant in helping Olivia achieve her first big "O". He is a big time soccer player worth millions but to Olivia he is a jerk from her past that broke her heart. He is cocky at times but the more the story develops his character comes off as a sweet and caring guy who is in love with his best friend's younger sister. Luke has had feelings for Olivia for a long time but has never truly acted on them and now he has his one shot and ends up making a deal with her that will either give him more time with her in hopes for more or back fire on them both.
So if your looking for a story that has a little bit of an enemies to lovers vibe with some serious chemistry and some melt your kindle moments thrown in there, look no further this will be your book. This author gives you a love story full of complications and issues to overcome to give you one epic HEA. I voluntarily signed up for an ARC for this book with nothing to gain other than giving my honest opinion/review of this story.
Do you ever think about someone in your childhood that broke your heart completely and wished that life gave you both another chance to make it work?
Reading Simply Complicated is like that, but instead of my own childhood heartbreak, I was living Olivia Brighton's.
Luke Sorenson broke Olivia's heart in pursuit of his soccer dreams, but while Olivia assumed she was an afterthought to Luke -- something that fueled her anger and dislike towards him -- Luke actually thought of Olivia as someone who got away.
When they cross paths again, Olivia is on a mission: to finally get the big "O." And it seems that Luke could be the missing piece to accomplishing that mission. Luke agrees, thinking that this could be their second chance at love.
This book was hella spicy. It was clear from the get-go that these two had serious chemistry and their efforts in getting Olivia's mission done were super-hot.
Luke is one charming book hero. But while he puts up a cocky front, I love that he has this sweet and caring side that he reserves especially for Olivia. And while I adored Luke, Olivia was the MVP of this book for me. Sassy and fierce, she clearly does not back from a challenge, whether it is accomplishing this mission or working in a field dominated by men.
