Review: More Than Him by Jay McLean

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we're back.
And we're fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.

Re-read it with More Than Her and loved it so much more the second time around. So I'm upgrading my rating.

Logan and Amanda's story has finally come full circle.

In More Than Him, we find Amanda coping with the absence of Logan, trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered relationship.

Logan on the other hand, was off doing volunteer work for Doctors Without Borders, suffering from PTSD and missing Amanda.

While their feelings for each other is still painfully apparent and the distance between them is compounding their pain and longing. Which in turn made this book an angsty read.

I was really surprise at the direction that Jay McLean took. I thought she was going to give us a triangle with Tristan figuring out during the first few chapters of the book but she didn't. And THANK GOD!! This book is really about Logan and Amanda growing up and maturing and learning to trust each other again.

It was sweet.
It was funny.
And it was all kinds of hot.
I mean, we are talking about Logan here. That boy is definitely not a boy anymore in this book. His letters and his journal entries were heartbreaking. I admit, I hated him a little in More Than Her when he just up and left but now....sighI can't hate him for long. It's not just possible.

I also adored Amanda. I thought she was going to turn into one of those indecisive females. Thank God, she didn't. Although, she was a little wary about Logan's intention, she never wavered in her love for him. Even with the delectable Tristan nearby.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable read. I laughed, cried, raged and aww'd throughout the book. It was great to catch up with the rest of the gang. These guys have become like part of me that I can't help but smile and cry over some of the things that's happening to them. I really can't wait for more.

Jay Mclean, you've outdone yourself again. Could you pretty please give Dr. Alan Matthews his own HEA? Pretty please?
