“I’m being asked if table thirty-three can incorporate thirty-four into their party.”

Julian looked over to see a crowd of men gathered around the larger high-boy table. “No, give it some time. St. Clair’s a good customer. Get some barstools from the back, and let’s see if he arrives.”

“Hey, Julian. Have we heard from thirty-four? Is he coming in tonight?” Remington, another waiter, asked from about the midway point down the bar where he loaded his tray with cocktail glasses. “One of my guests wants to know.”

“Who wants to know?” Julian looked over to Remington’s section of tables as if a large red arrow would point him out.

“The older guy at table twenty-seven.”

Julian’s gaze locked on that table. All the men looked older, sophisticated, well put together, and handsome. Damn.

“Which one?” Julian asked.

“The older one,” Remington repeated, then turned with his tray full of drinks in his hand. “Is he coming tonight?”

So, the Marlboro Man had built a fan club involving more than just the club’s waiters and bartenders. Julian’s possessive side stood on guard. “We’re holding the table for him, but he’s late.”

Julian dug into the salad with his fork, stuffing a big bite into his mouth, and reached for the untouched glass of water nearby. He chomped out his frustration that the big, tall cowboy hat wearing mystery man was building some possible hookups.

Julian had watched as Beckett sat alone for hours at his table until some of the waiters were cut from their shifts and ended up joining the guy. Beckett had become a welcome patron in the club and his table a safe place for most of the guys who worked for Reservations to gather.

No, Julian hadn’t missed all the long lingering looks Beckett tossed his way. He liked the way Beckett watched him. Those intriguing brown eyes and that appealing gaze. Beckett was all man, every single inch of him. He knew that for a fact because he’d rubbed himself against all that masculinity when they’d danced.

An unexpected sensation had Julian dropping the fork in his hand to the plate, his gaze lowering to his trouser-covered cock. Holy hell, the way it plumped painfully against his zipper had his heart thumping wildly in his chest. The damn thing did, in fact, work. How long had it been since he’d grown hard? He couldn’t remember. Tears of happiness sprung to his eyes, making him fight to swallow the lump forming in his throat. Damn, it felt good.

How much had he had to drink? Regardless of his actions over the last few days, Julian had given up alcohol. Should he have been drinking this whole time?

“Boss, you good?” Ricco tapped the edge of the bar to gain Julian’s attention.

He paid the bartender no heed, not wanting to lose this moment. Julian had only had two cocktails over the last couple of hours. That meant he was practically sober, yet his cock was working again for the first time in a long while.

Under Ricco’s intense scrutiny, Julian’s cock deflated. He closed his eyes, bringing forth images of Beckett sitting alone at his table, rarely speaking to anyone. Every single time Beckett showed up or planned to leave for the night, his gaze sought out Julian. No matter how hard Julian fought the urge to turn Beckett’s way he eventually would turn, helpless to do anything but.

Beckett would smile and touch the brim of his hat. Fuck, what a sexy move. Beckett’s strong jaw and full lips, his dark tanned skin… Julian’s dick swelled at warp speed.

Hell yeah. Julian was helpless to stop the tear that built enough steam to trickle down his cheek. This had to mean he was healing, right?

“Julian. You good?”

He opened his eyes, prepared to share with Ricco exactly why he was great right now. His hand reached to wipe away the tear when the unique scent of outdoors, sunshine, and exotic spices hit his senses. Unmistakably Beckett. He looked over to see an expansive masculine chest and broad shoulders leaning into him as Beckett busted a move to avoid a collision with one of the busboys.

Julian lifted his gaze. Of course, he held all of Beckett’s undivided attention. They locked gazes for one, maybe two long seconds, before Ricco’s hand slapped down hard on the bar top, pulling Julian’s gaze toward Ricco.

“What?” He said the word with maybe three syllables of frustration.

Ricco showed zero cares about Julian’s obvious annoyance “Are. You. Goooda?”

“Mind your business. Concentrate on the job you’re being paid to do.” Julian motioned to the line of waiters standing at the bar, waiting for their drinks. But even that only held his attention for the briefest of moments before he happily lowered his gaze again to his dick. The damn thing was rigidly hard, straining against his form-hugging pants. Holy fuck. The relief was staggering.

Julian dropped his head between his shoulder blades, thanking the universe for this blessing.

“Mr. St. Clair, we were getting worried about you,” Ricco said.

“Call me Beckett.” The rich masculine timbre held hints of a deeply cultured southern accent, drawing Julian’s gaze to Beckett once again.

“A guy at one of Remington’s tables wants to buy your drinks tonight,” Ricco said to Beckett as he started to pour again. “He asked me to see if you’re interested when you came in.”

Julian’s head dropped forward; he couldn’t help his astonished stare. He got caught up in Beckett’s new look. Julian’s gaze narrowed to Beckett, admiring how he wore the hugely popular suit with the athletic cut. Beckett looked fashionable in a style that accented every one of his masculine curves and edges. He was clean-shaven with his hair styled and pushed back off his forehead. No cowboy hat to be found anywhere.

“Which table?” Beckett asked and turned toward the grouping of tables. His body angled to look where Remington pointed to a group of three men. Julian looked down the length of Beckett’s long body. He wasn’t wearing boots tonight or a tie. Instead, his collar was unbuttoned with a small amount of fur peaking from the opening. The look suited him. Julian’s fingers twitched to run over the man’s exposed skin. He’d bet Beckett had the same dark tan all the way down that expansive chest.

Beckett was mouthwateringly gorgeous in this new look. Who would have known the man could be even more handsome than Julian remembered?

Tonight, the man held an air of confidence that he didn’t usually have. Beckett lifted a hand to the men, grinned a sultry smile, and turned back to Ricco. “Buy his next round on me and tell him thank you, I’m flattered, but I’ve got my eye on someone else tonight.”




Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Man... this book was a bumpy ride, but worth every minute. Julian and Beckett were just perfect for each other. Julian has been through so much and had to deal with just as much to get where he is today. Beckett knew the moment he saw Julian he was worth the wait. From the first page I was all in and I couldn't wait to see how things played out. Beckett was simply perfect and everything Julian needed. These two gave me all the feels. I laughed, cried, cheered them on, and, of course, fell in love with them. Highly recommend.

This is the second book in the series – and whilst I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, to get the full goodness of the side relationships, you can read this first and enjoy going back and getting Thane and Levi's story afterwards too!

Julian is a fascinating character – he was badly attacked and had Thane not been a true gentleman, who knows what would have befallen him. Luckily Thane not only supported him through the trauma, but he also gave him a new purpose, managing his club, Reservations. But as he heals, he wonders whether he should not go back to his life as an escort again, enjoying the wealth and perks of the lifestyle.

One guy at the club, Beckett, has his eye on Julian, and thinks there is a spark back. Not really secure in his recent acceptance of his sexual orientation, he does not imagine he makes much of an impression, but he is trying. For such a secure, vital man, his nerves are strangely appealing and very honest. It took me only seconds to only want good things for both of them – and I was sure it was to be with each other – but the gaps in their dreams and expectations are significant...

A lovely, sexy, romantic, and cheering read – thank you, Kindle Alexander!

3.5 stars

It's Complicated is the second book in the Reservations series. It can be read as a complete standalone, as I did, but now after meeting Thane and Levi, I have to go back and read the first book in the series, Reservations.

Two years ago Julian Cullen was attacked, and his entire life has changed. He misses the life he had. He loved being an escort and was good at his job. He wants that life back and wants to fight to get there but he hates that he can't remember who did this to him. Thane took care of Julian, paying his hospital bills and giving him a job. Julian loved working at Reservations, he was good at his job. And when the tall handsome man gives him attention, he fights everything in him to ignore that attention.

From the moment Beckett St. Clair walks into Reservations, he has his eyes set on Julian. He doesn't know Julian's past, but he has an urge to protect the man in any way he can. Beckett is very gentle and sweet with Julian, going at his pace.

Beckett and Julian are completely opposite but work so well together. And Woofers, how could you not love that dog?! I am excited to see what is next for Reservations with Rico's story!

This story started well. I found Julian interesting, sexy, and strong willed. He is a city boy and likes the finer things in life. Beckett, on the other hand, is down to earth, hardworking, and a man who loves the outdoors. They guys come from different worlds, and I adored them both. I loved Beckett’s patience and that he was happy to take things slowly and to be supportive of whatever Julian needed. I wanted them to be together because that was what Beckett wanted and I wanted him to be happy.

This story is focused almost entirely on Julian and Beckett, which was fine at first, but as the story approached the midway point things started to slow down. As much as I liked Beckett and Julian, the story started to struggle to hold my attention because not a great deal seemed to be happening. By the time I hit the halfway point I considered giving up reading but I’m a big fan of Kindle Alexander, so I decided to push on. I’m glad I kept reading because the last third of the book had the emotion and drama I wanted, and it sucked me right back into the story and had me shedding a few tears. I read the rest of the book in one sitting.

Overall, I enjoyed It’s Complicated. The ending was so satisfying, and Julian and Beckett deserved to be happy, and I was happy for them. 3.5 stars.
