Product description

Product Description

Fairy tale endings weren’t made for people like me. Happy for now usually ain’t in the cards, either.

The dents on my wall from where my headboard kept knockin’ against the same spot was the first clue that I needed to calm my ass down. At the rate I was racking up notches and plowing through hookups, I wasn’t ever gonna find nothing real. Guess I kinda jinxed myself. I created my circumstances. You can’t get what you want if you keep falling back into the same pattern of bad habits. But then things changed. I stumbled onto somethin’ I never in a million years expected to happen. You gotta understand, I’m never the guy who wins. It was supposed to be just sex, but that shifty, rhyming and scheming bastard, Cupid, pulled a fast one.

I may have changed some stuff to protect a couple of people. But before you go believing the tabloids, make sure you understand that you’re gettin’ the lowdown straight from the source.

I needed to get this off my chest and it’s only fair that you at least get my side of it all. At some point, I might regret telling you any of this, but for now, you need to know.

*Disclaimer* This is a novella. Not a short story, novelette, or novel. This tale features an M/M pairing. If gay erotica/erotic romance is not your cup of tea and you are offended by same-sex relationships or crass language, you should bypass this story. Content is intended for a mature audience, 18+.


Complexity is the fourth installment in The Kinky Connect Chronicles. The Kinky Connect Chronicles are short erotic stories/novelettes all wrapped up in neat little bows. These stories are standalones. No cliffhangers in the lot!

Complexity is a M/M novella, but it is also a biracial romance and to some extent a bisexual romance, making it very unique indeed. I had a hard time getting into the story at first, but then the plot picked up and held my attention.

The main character, Manny (a personal trainer), was complex and well developed, but I felt like his love interest, Chris (a famous actor), was not as fleshed out as I would have liked. What I did see of Chris I really liked. What he did and said at the end of the book melted my heart! Manny, on the other hand, I wanted to shake many times, and I'm not generally a violent person. The relationship between Manny and Chris was well written, and the intimate scenes between them were intense and vivid. I liked seeing their relationship develop and blossom.

Complexity was the first book that I have read by Harper Miller. Although I like M/M romances and appreciated the unique biracial romance, it was not my cup of tea. I had a difficult time wading through all the informal speech Manny used like "tryna" and "gonna," which distracted me from the plot. Also, despite the disclaimer of "no cliffhangers" in the book description, the novella did have a sort of cliffhanger. The end of the book, the epilogue, is only online at the author's website.

I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium.

It's my first book by Harper Miller, and I can guarantee you that I'd be happy to read more of her books in the future.

Complexity is my second m/m romance book I've read. It's a slow build up but worth it though.

I liked the characters together. Both Manny and Chris are loveable in their own ways. Their relationship was intense which I liked a lot.

I wasn't sure how I would go with this book but I liked it. I loved how we learnt a back story to manny, wish we knew a bit more about Chris. I absolutely loved what he says at end. Swoon. I think too it's quite a relevant issue written well. Will def read more of Harper work. 👍

4.0 out of 5 stars A look at truths, sacrifices, and wants 6 March 2017
By amazon143er - Published on Amazon.com

I can't get enough of Harper Miller's Kinky Connect Chronicles where people meet online and hook up. Complexity takes an intricate look at not only being gay, but being involved as an interracial couple and a couple that is financially disproportionate.

This book gets complex really quick. The main characters, Puerto Rican born and personal trainer Emmanuel "Manny" Acosta and Caucasian high profile actor Christopher Kaine have a lot at stake if the world knew they were a couple however some members of Manny's family knew he was bisexual whereas no one knew Christopher was gay which later would cause a problem for Manny which is like the pot calling the kettle black.

I liked the different layers Complexity brought out and how the storyline allowed the characters to discover themselves. When fear is put aside a whole new world is opened up and possiblies are explored and I felt this is what happened for Chris.

Complexity is a look at truths, sacrifices, and wants. This book gets 4.5 I love you stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Defining Moments 16 July 2016
By Felicia Denise - Published on Amazon.com

This quick read packs a powerful punch!

Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Acosta has come to terms with who he is and is sick of labels. Is he Hispanic or Latino? Does it matter? Is he bi or gay? He likes women and men…who cares? But Manny knows unfortunately, people do care, and he has come out only to a very few people closest to him. Considering his culture, neighborhood, and even his line of work, life could be very different for Manny if more people knew, and not in a good way.

But Manny is getting tired of quick, meaningless, nameless hookups. Well past thirty, most of his friends are busy ‘adulting’ with families. A personal trainer, Manny is working towards his dream of owning a gym. But he’s still alone. Although he doesn’t believe it’s in the cards for him, Manny is looking for his LEGO – that one person meant for him, to stick with him no matter what.

What begins as a simple internet hookup leads Manny to Chris, and drama he doesn’t want, a relationship he doesn’t think he can handle…and a man he wants more than anything. Manny pulls away after a misunderstanding. When Chris confronts him, the two men make up and admit their true feelings for each other. Manny is settling into what feels like happiness, when he’s gob smacked by one more admission from Chris. While Manny is ‘partially’ out, Chris isn’t out at all and doesn’t intend to change that. Having to choose between Manny and his career, Chris walks away, and Manny is devastated.

I loved, loved, loved Manny! He had such a gritty, honest feel. He didn’t mince words or pretty things up. He was honest to a fault, especially about himself and who he was. When he called himself an ‘emotional retard’ I LITERALLY laughed out loud and almost dropped my Kindle. Manny has several moments like that during the story. He’s deep in thought or in a conversation with someone else, and the things that come out of his mouth!!! LOL! Priceless! Manny’s pain and frustration are also more than evident, and as he hurts and tries to navigate through his anguish, I was right there with him, virtually patting him on the back saying, “Aye Papi! Va a estar bien!”

I had ‘some’ sympathy for Chris. I can’t imagine having to live as he did, but after a while, I was looking for the exit – his self-pity party was working every nerve I had. I was in total agreement with Manny that Chris’ concerns were for Chris…period. But there’s comeuppance for every cynic, and Chris gave me mine…and sat me in the corner…when he showed exactly what he was made of. I always try to stay away from spoilers, so let’s just say this story has the BEST GRAND ROMANTIC GESTURE I’ve read in ANY romance in YEARS! Kudos to the author for “bringing it!”

This is a definite must-read for anyone who loves the journey to love.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a terrific read!! 10 July 2016
By Anita L McFarlane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good golly! This was awesome. With a few strokes of the pen, in a handfull of pages, we get an amazing deeply emotional, funny tale about two guys, Manny and Chris. But Manny steals the show. The book has a very Santino Hassell vibe and I kept thinking of Raymond from Sunset Park (Five Boroughs, #2) by Santino Hassell as Manny spoke. Urban, funny, real relatable characters. Fantastic dialogue. And dirty, sexy and flaming hot smexy. Terrific perspective from out and proud bi guy. So many books throw in bisexual characters as a way to explain actions of the characters. Not here - Manny is not shy about who he is and I loved it!! Though we meet them late in the book, the secondary characters, moms, Juan, etc are well rounded. Her depiction of NYC is spot on. This is a new to me author and this may be her first MM. Now I know she has said these kinky chronicles are standalones, but please, please more of Chris and Manny. It can't end that way. I don't read many MF books anymore but might have to make an exception for Ms. Miller. Her writing is superb. Just hope, hope, hope she dips into the MM pool again.

~This is a partial review. Full review originally reviewed on BackPorchReader[dot]com 7/8/2016.~

Complexity is Harper’s first foray into M/M. And I’m so, so, so excited she took this step. Really…when I found out about this book, I let out an uncharacteristic whoop of joy. I’m hoping with all my hope she keeps at it.

Keeping with the theme of the series this installment goes from the online connection of Manny and Chris and steps into their real-life relationship.

Manny is bisexual, semi-closeted, generally looking for flings with established couples but would like to find an authentic connection though he’s convinced love-everlasting won’t happen for him.

Chris has secrets. He’s also closeted, deeply, for Reasons and super hesitant to provide any personal details. He’s not in a position to offer a partner anything more than casual on his terms.

Manny and Chris together are on fire together despite a rocky face-to-face start that’s full of surprises. Manny’s bossy and just what Chris is looking for in the bedroom. Their combustion sparks a night neither will soon forget and leaves them wanting more.

Through some strains of miscommunication, a lot of Manny’s inner monologue, and fears of being vulnerable, their relationship is kept to a relatively simple friends-with-benefits affair. Until…

Yeah…I’m not giving it all away. I’ll just say there were some beautiful surprises and grand gestures that melted me into a pile of goo.

There’s a lot to like here. Complex, flawed characters, a realness to emotions and fears, and undeniable attraction. This was definitely a couple I wanted to root for through their HEA.

Before I go….I’ve gotta mention these covers. All of them in this series. MY GOD THESE COVERS. Every one of them is spot on gorgeousness. Hats off to Taria A. Reed.
