LOUISA’S 4.75 STAR REVIEW
I have been waiting to read a good “angsty” read and well, me-oh-my
I GOT IT!
The angst in this book…oh Lucas! You made me crazy! But I loved every second of this book.
It’s so nice to read about these great characters from their childhood into adulthood. They were such great friends and watching as they grow up somewhat grow apart was sad but true. They are 3 boys and Alex aka “half pint”. They go from hanging on the beach and eating at Alex’s parents restaurant through the years, until they all begin to grow up and relationships begin to change.
M. Robinson has introduced us to one great cast of characters, who truly love each other and care for each other as family. I think that most of us will be able to relate to each of these characters. Making decisions that will change our lives for ever. Making our family and friends priorities in life, and relying on our gut instincts to take you on the right path. But then again, everything happens for a reason!
This is a beautiful heartbreaking coming of age story that will captivate you. You name the emotion and you will feel it while reading this book. Sadness, happiness, sorrow, love, hate, elation, relief and frustration.
I am about to send my oldest son to his senior year of high school. I remember when he was starting kindergarten. I am so happy he has made the friends he has and just hope that he continues those friendships as he gets older and reading this book has made me a bit sappy and introspective.
This is M. Robinson’s first book in this genre and I just can’t wait for more! I am so looking forward to the next books from the “Good ol’ boys” series.
KERRY’S 4.75 STAR REVIEW
There is always that one book that will WOW you and leave your breathless and speechless…this is what M Robinson has done with Complete Me. This book is out of her norm and she has done an outstanding job. You NEED to read this book…I don’t know what you’re waiting for ~~ GO GRAB IT you won’t be disappointed.
Alex grew up around boys “her” boys but one stood out more than the others, Lucas,
“He consumed me in ways I didn’t understand. As I got older I started to understand but at the same time I didn’t want to lose any of my boys they were my life. We were always told that we couldn’t or shouldn’t have those feelings we fought it but feelings are so hard to have, I had to watch from a distance, Lucas would flaunt all his girls but I remand his brown eyed girl, his half-pint. As we grew no one understood the pull that we had for each other I wasn’t just the girl who grew up with the boys I was the glue that held us together and I will continue to be that girl, I’m their half-pint, sister, friend and family.”
” I know Alex deserves better but I just couldn’t stay away, she was my everything but I knew I had to let her go. I was a boy and boys do some dumb things, during are dumb adolescence we hurt the ones we love and boy did I hurt Alex in so many ways. I wish I could take it back but I can’t the damage is done. There’s always that one girl who stands out from the rest Alex was the one who stood out, I knew that I would love her even if I couldn’t be with her she is my half pint, my brown eyed girl, my everything she is my last breath”.
What a great coming of age book from five years old, through adolescence and adulthood. This books has so much angst. It’s an emotional journey of friendship, family and lovers. Alex and Lucas story is one that we all can relate to in some sort of way, we were all teenagers and have been through the emotions of growing up, the peer pressure, wanting to fit in, This is a page turner and yes you will want to scream more than once I had such a love/ hate relationship with the characters if I could I would have loved to shake them. You can feel every emotion, anguish, heartache, laughter there isn’t emotion that you won’t feel while reading!

endlessly, a river of her sadness and sorrow and of my broken promises. No
beginning or ending to her cries, just an infinite current, flooding the hole
where my heart should be. The shadow of her trembling petite body reflected off
the walls, leaving a trail of regrets in its wake.
