Spotlight & Giveaway - Complicated Creatures Part One by Alexi Lawless

Complicated Creatures Part One
by Alexi Lawless


What happens when curiosity becomes obsession?

From author Alexi LAWLESS, the first part in a provocative romantic suspense series...

Luck is Jack Roman's middle name— and Chicago is his Empire. He lives to work, loves to play, and makes no commitments. But when the mysterious S. Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, he's immediately drawn to her, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations in the most dangerous parts of the world.

Intrigued by her self-possession, aroused by her incredible passion, and disarmed by a vulnerability she cannot hide, Jack pursues her into the nexus of her dangerous present and her enigmatic past. An entire world is revealed to Jack, where living for pleasure becomes fighting for survival. And the only woman he wants may be the one he cannot have...

COMPLICATED CREATURES is a mesmerizing, labyrinthine erotic romance that will leave you wondering: Do you really want to know everything about the one you love?

Note to the Reader: Complicated Creatures is the first ebook in a series of erotic romantic-suspense fiction. It is recommended for readers 18+ for mature content… these are not your mother’s romance novels!

"A Stellar Read!" - Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"Alluring, Suspenseful & Compelling..."

"Sharp, Lush and Vivid Writing Style"


“Being with you…” She slid her hands over the slopes of his shoulders, her legs riding up to hitch over his hips under the water. “Feels so easy, almost visceral,” she confessed. 

“And you don’t like it?” he asked, kissing the hollow of her throat.

“I don’t like anything that feels involuntary,” she answered.

Author’s favorite quotes:

§  Jack kissed like he was speaking a language to her, some secret, shared communication. Each kiss felt a little reckless and fierce, his mouth hot and demanding.
§  Jack had learned young it wasn't just about how fit you were or how hard you could throw a punch. It was the mental stamina, the strategy, and your ability to read others. It was the internal drive that made you push yourself beyond anything you thought possible.
§  …He felt somehow that her knowing everything about him was an inevitability. It seemed every time he saw her, he laid himself barer, stripping himself down to the quick in slow, inexorable degrees.

Complicated Creatures Part One is the debut of a five-part series:

·         Part One, which is available now.

·         Novella 1.5, which will hopefully be ready sometime in July to people who sign up on my website.

·         Part Two, which will be available at the end of the summer.

·         Novella 2.5, which will come out in the fall.

·         The Prequel to Complicated Creatures which will be a full-length YA story about Sam when she goes to college, available around Christmas/New Year’s. And finally…

§  Part Three, the conclusion to the Complicated Creatures series, available this time next year.




Corporate Runaway. Novelist. Wanderer. Bourbon Drinker.

Alexi LAWLESS has been a closeted writer for thirty-odd years—from way back when she was banging out stories on a Commodore 64 to her years writing the corporate strategies for some of the largest companies in the world. But it was two years ago, laid up after foot surgery, that she started to seriously consider whether it was time to come out as the novelist she’d always wanted to be.

Armed with a laptop and an around-the-world ticket, she quit the corporate scene and set out to see if her passion for writing was more than a pipe-dream. Less than a year later, Alexi’s debuting her first published novel, ComplicatedCreatures: Part One, with the second book due out this summer. And while you may catch her sipping a drink in Miami Beach, you’re more likely to find her indulging her nomadic tendencies somewhere in Latin America or Southeast Asia.
