Summary

When Mikayla imagined her prom night, she envisioned a fairy-tale evening full of romance. So when betrayal and tragedy come in quick succession, Mikayla is completely destroyed. Suddenly, everything she loved and everyone she relied on are tragically, irrevocably gone.

Jake, a handsome boy she just met, happens to witness her loss. With no one to turn to, Mikayla is forced to depend on this near stranger and his family, and he in turn is determined to take care of her. But Mikayla - thrust into adulthood with no one to guide her - is desperate to contain her grief and hide what she considers to be her weakness. Mikayla and Jake both want more, but despite their growing closeness and intense chemistry, she tries to keep her distance and protect her heart. As he does everything in his power to win her trust, Mikayla must choose between remaining alone and safe or letting love in.

Loved this book

I really liked this book story was girly but a little risky

There was 2 readers which made it more realistic when it was talking from the male and female point of view wasn’t a fan of the American assents though

Not for under eighteen or the faint of heart...

I LOVED this book. I didn't realize at the beginning how sexual it was, but still loved it nonetheless. Which they would have picked a different female reader...her voice isn't right for this.

Amazing Story

I absolutely love the More Than series and couldn't wait to listen to the audio version. The story is still amazing but the performance was lack luster. The female voice was kind of robotic.

That being said, I am keeping this and will listen to it again and again because it's a love story like no other and the quick wit and humor that Jay McLean implants into her books makes the characters lovable. I hope the rest of the series is added to audible soon.

Amazing!

What an amazing, emotional, roller coaster read! I'm new to Jay McLean books and I'm happy I chose this series to start! She did an amazing job showing us the emotions Kayla went thru and how badly Jake wanted her. It wasn't all "teen hormones". It was about love and finding ones self while going thru tragedy. Can't wait to start the next book with Logan's story!

I don't know which is worse...the narration or the story.

It took every ounce of me to push past the first 5 annoying minutes of the story. I have a hard time starting a book and not finishing it. I'm glad I did, but the story didn't get much better.

I don't mind the male voice, the female's voice sounded so unenthusiastic about everything. Above all, I think that was the biggest turn off in the book. If you're interested in the story line, I recommend reading the book as opposed to listening to it.

I would pass

The female narrator was hard to listen to, especially when she tried to do an accent. The story/struggle was very weak & juvenile yet incorporated adult content. 5th grade reading with adult content. Stick with Nora Roberts!

Enjoyed

The story was definitely nothing I've read before. I think the trust issues were over played but it was understandable. My FAVORITE thing about this book are the hot encounters between the main characters. I enjoyed it greatly.

More Than I Expected

Powerful, gripping and heart-wrenching... the story begins with such ferocity but then subsides into a slower paced path to young love. The secondary characters and their friendships build this into more than just a simple story. I expect much more to come... ready for book two!

Great Narrorators

But the story was a lot of teenage drama. It had potential, but wasn't for me.

Great story and narration

Prom night turns into a nightmare for Mikayla Jones in more ways than one. Tragic circumstances leave her alone in the world and her only saving grace is the handsome stranger who shows her kindness on the worst night of her young life. Jake Andrews noticed Mikayla as soon as she walked into his world. He wanted her immediately and plans to do whatever is necessary to take care of her.

What I liked: This book was a nearly perfect read. The plot and pace are exceptional. It’s sexy and sweet, but also tragic and sad. It’s definitely not a feel good story, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Jake Andrews is a perfect YA/NA hero. I utterly adored him. The epilogue and setup for future releases was an added bonus. I can’t wait to read more.

What didn’t work for me: My main issue is that Mikayla tended to grate on my nerves a bit. I vacillated between feeling her pain and hating her for being so immature and inconsiderate to Jake. I was able to empathize with her character, but I wanted her figure things a bit sooner than she did.

Audiobook review: This dual POV book is narrated by Jeremy York and Allison Lynnewood. I sped the narration up a bit(1.25x), but overall I enjoyed the audio version.
Overall, this novel is well executed. I was very impressed and look forward to reading more from Jay McLean very soon!
