“I am here to save you.”
HOLY SQUEEZZZE! MY HEART ❤ This is yet another EPIC love story from Mia Sheridan.
So, what is this story about? The synopsis below said it all … so I won’t repeat myself.
The moment she met Callen Hayes, eleven-year-old Jessica Creswell knew he was a broken prince. Her prince. They became each other’s refuge, a safe and magical place far from their troubled lives. Until the day Callen kissed her—Jessica’s first real, dreamy kiss—and then disappeared from her life without a word.
Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen’s music is now locked deep inside, trapped behind his own inner demons. It’s only when he withdraws to France to drink his way through the darkness that Callen stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. His Jessie. And she still tastes of fresh, sweet innocence . . . even as she sets his blood on fire.
But they don’t belong in each other’s worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes. Too many secrets. Too many lies. All they have is that instinctive longing, that need—and something that looks dangerously like love.
Seriously! I cannot get enough from this author. Callen and Jessie’s story is sort of a modern fairytale – a broken prince who befriended and protected his princess, then disappeared. A decade later destiny brought them together again. This time Callen is the one needing rescuing from his own demons. Callen has grown into a sex God. A famous music composer who is spiraling down a dark path. Jessie is beautiful and driven. She is living out her dream in Paris like she always wanted. Jessie always wondered why Callen left her behind without a word after the special friendship they shared. Time did not change Jessie’s feelings for Callen but she is reluctant to put her heart on the line again. Can Callen and Jessie rekindle the magic they once had?
“Life was more than words. It was laughter and love, faith and joy. And mostly, it was the deep peace that came from living life fiercely and without regret.”
More than words is a sweet childhood puppy love / second chance romance. The road to HEA is not without struggles and heartbreaks. This story is about forgiveness, redemption, fate and finding love when you least expect it. Mia’s elegant writing always draws me deep into the plot… I almost feel like I am existing in the story right along with the characters. Callen and Jessie both have their own demons, secrets, and troubles to overcome. I am not going to lie. The hero is a bit of a man-whore, one who does not quite know what he wants – meaningless sex and partying. Jessie remains innocent, waiting for her prince charming. Callen knows Jessie is THE ONE for him however doesn’t think he deserves her love. Jessie wants to give Callen a second chance but her not so stellar upbringing makes it difficult to trust others. I can literally feel their struggle but I think it’s the characters’ vulnerability, flaws, and how they grow and persevere that make them real and relatable. This book definitely pulled at all my heart strings. It’s got all the feels – sweet and innocent, heartbreak and redemption, hopes, dreams, courage and a happily ever after. By the time I finished the epilogue I was a blubbering mess. What I adore about this author’s book is that every story comes with a special meaning and message, one that captivated you and stays rooted in your mind long after the last page is turned. You will see … nothing is as it seems and people will only choose to show you what they want you to see.
“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”
This author is timeless and forever one of my favorites. I can’t recommend this book enough to all of you – Unique, unforgettable, and simply exquisite.
“To never being too old to learn new things.” —- AMEN!
