One sitting. That’s all it took for me to read this book. I devoured it, I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what was going to happen with Reid and Sienna. Claire Raye, these two created such an amazing story, and I wanted so badly to take my time and savor it, but it was so amazing I couldn’t be slow.
Complete Me picks up right where Complicate Me left off. Sienna is so sure that Reid ruined her and her family’s life, she trusted him, and he broke her trust….or so she thought. Reid is determined to show Sienna that she is the love of his life and that she can trust him. He’ll stop at nothing to make things right. The question is, can Reid do it?
Claire Raye absolutely killed this book. They had me hooked from the first page, I loved every single thing about Sienna and Reid, as well as Caleb. This was such a complex story, filled with just the right amount drama, and love, but also some suspense thrown in! I also loved that we got to see more of Caleb and learn more about his relationships with Sienna and Reid. I will say, I need more of Caleb ASAP, I have a feeling he is going to wreck me! This was an amazing conclusion to the Hawthorn Hills Duet, and I can’t wait to see what these two do next!

Meet Claire Raye:
Not only is Claire Raye a really sweet pen name, it’s actually a pen name for two sarcastic best friends who met through their mutual love of reading. After bonding over books (and wine and cheese), Claire and Raye decided to take the plunge and see if they could write a book together and ta dah… The Rockport Beach Series was born! In addition to their shared love of food and dropping an occasional (read: a lot) of f bombs, the writing duo that is Claire Raye like to write about strong sassy females who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their mind and the overprotective men who fall in love with them.
Writing The Rockport Beach Novels was so much fun, even if book two needed a shared vacation, a stolen bottle of champagne and far too much vodka and POG to get it back on track! Both halves of Claire Raye are married and both of their husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in their books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males Claire and Raye love to write about.
While Claire and Raye aren’t sure they’ll ever reveal who they really are – there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier – they are definitely going to keep on writing. With several more books out since the Rockport Beach Series released, Claire and Raye are constantly chatting new ideas, new plots and of course, their next couple! So stick around, there’s so much exciting stuff to share with you all!
