I'll be honest, it has been about a year and a half since I did my re-read/catch up of this series (where has that time gone?) and I was a little worried that I wouldn't remember or enjoy this book as much because it's been so long. I am pleased to say that while I didn't remember everything, Young was able to fill in the gaps and make this an enjoyable conclusion the series as a whole.

Hello everyone!

I am back with another review, The Complication by Suzanne Young!

The story follows the same characters as the first book in this duology, including Tatum, whose perspective we get the story from. Wes is back after his Adjustment and Tatum learns something shocking about herself - something her grandparents never told her. While she knows interacting with Wes could cause him severe damage, she can't help but be drawn to him. And he is drawn to her as well - he seems to understand their history in a way he cannot explain. With no one left to trust, Tatum has to figure out what to do and how to save the ones she loves - before its too late.

As I mentioned, it has been a while since the beginning of my Program journey, and a while since I read the first book in this duology. I was worried that would prevent me from understanding and enjoying this book, but for the most part, we are re-learning some things along with Tatum. Young does a good job of recapping things that need it - but she also includes cameos and allusions to characters and events in the rest of the series that you get best if you've read the other books.

I don't know if I was just feeling nostalgic for this series or what but I ended up liking this book a lot more than The Adjustment - and more than I thought I would. There was just something about how everything came together so perfectly, including issues from the other books as well. We see closure and new beginnings for the other couples including James and Sloane and Nicole and Deacon which I really enjoyed. Young also does a really great job of tying everything together. Things like the closers which seemed a little obscure and unrelated at first are explained in a way that fits within the rest of the story.

Overall, I thought this was a great conclusion to the series and it's bittersweet to see it go.
