Mindy’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Kaler Holt married his highschool sweetheart, had a baby girl and is now a single father. Kaler feels that his ex wife left because she didn’t want a daughter that has special needs. Kaler has made Willow his number one priority. Now that she is starting kindergarten the real struggle begins.

Jenna Winston grew up in this small town. Now that she landed the new kindergarten teacher job she knows that she is going to love her new career. When she learns Willow is going to be in her class she wonders why her best friend would ever leave her daughter behind.

Let me tell you I fell so hard for these characters. Willow is my absolute favorite. She has a presence about her that just makes her shine and everyone that is around her. I felt so many emotions as I read this book. Kaler is an absolute wonderful father to Willow. When his ex wife tries to come back into Willow’s life he has his guard up and Willow’s best interest in mind.

The overall problem with being from a small town means that everyone knows everything about you. When Kaler and Jenna finally realize they are more than friends and falling in love with each other they have to take on the wrath of the town. Everyone now knows that Jenna is sleeping with her best friends ex husband.

Something Complained is the first book in the Dirty Southern Secrets series from this author. I have been so excited waiting for this new series. J L. did not let me down with this one! I am so in love and cannot wait to read more!
