ExcerptHe gripped my ass tighter. I let out a sound I had no idea I was capable of. I was so fucking turned on. His movements on me were making me so wet I could feel it soaking my panties. His mouth moved from my neck to my ear, "You gotta quit making those sounds, baby." He kissed the spot behind it. "I'm starting to lost it." Then he took my mouth in his, moving into me harder, pinning me to the wall. My leg on the floor moved to wrap around him. I needed him closer to me; I needed more of him. He started to build a rhythm again. I felt that slow burn building low in my stomach. I didn't know how the fuck he was doing it. Or what the fuck he was even doing. But I didn't want it to stop. Ever. "Oh my God, Logan." I was panting; my head threw back against the wall. He was on my neck. Sucking. Hard. He was going to leave a mark. I wanted him to. "Matthews! What the fuck are you doing?" A deep voice yelled. I screamed, dropped my legs, ducked, and hid behind him. Oh. My. God. Reality set in. What the fuck were we doing? "Fuck." he spat. His hand went down his pants to adjust himself before turning around. "What the fuck do you think this is, Matthews?" "Sorry, Coach" Oh. My. God. Kill me now. "Go home!" I was too embarrassed to look past Logan to see his coaches reaction. "Yes Sir." Logan sounded like he was about to laugh. What the hell? "I'll cover for you." His coach sounded different now, like he was trying to contain his own laughter. "Fuck, I wish I was in college again," he said, before I heard his footsteps walking away. I don't know what emotion was on my face when Logan turned to me, but he laughed. Fucking laughed. "This shit's not funny!" I whispered loudly. " I almost let you have me. " I motioned with my finger at our surroundings. "Right here!" He didn't respond. Just looked me up and down and licked his lips. His eyes settled on my face, as he brought his hand to cup my cheek. And then his face was so close to mine; I could feel his breath on my lips. He rubbed his nose against mine. "Wait here," he said, his voice low, laced with desire. "We're not even close to being done. I'm going to take you home and I'm going to fucking finish what I started. And when I'm done with you, you won't even remember what happened just now. All you'll remember is how I make you feel when you're screaming my name."
That effin' ending!!!
Yes. Let's talk about the ending first, shall we? It's only natural. It could have easily been a 5 star read for me but I wish it ended on an HEA. Not that I'm complaining about Logan getting another book but yeah, cliffies suck. And this one, in my opinion, ends on a major cliffhanger.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's back up a little bit.
More Than Her is Logan's story. Logan is Jake's best friend from More Than This. We saw him as the sidekick of sorts, the comic relief but here, he takes the center stage and he OWNED it. In this book, we found out that Logan met a girl that he really liked. He was relentless in his pursuit of her. But he is a guy, naturally, he went and screwed it up big time. A year and a half later, he sees her again and he wants a second chance.
Their relationship from the get go was one heck of roller coaster ride. A word of warning: This book is full of angst. But it's full of comic relief too courtesy of Lucy and Cam and Logan. We see the whole gang rally around Logan here. I really felt that Jay McLean was able to capture their friendship, the camaraderie, the loyalty and their obvious affection toward each other.
This book will leave you breathless up until the very last page. Just when you thought you know where it was going, it goes off in another direction. I have to say, I loved the unpredictability. Jay McLean sure knows how to keep her readers guessing.
And speaking of guessing, I have no idea what's going to happen next. I truly don't. The ending, as I've said, sucked because I hate, hate cliffhangers. In the back of my mind, I'm always worried that the plot will be stretched too thin in the next book and I'll end up hating it. But know knowing Ms. McLean, I have high hopes that the next book, More Than Him will be as action-packed as this one.
