More Than Words by Mia Sheridan is available NOW!!
Read my thoughts on this swoon-worthy book!
No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Timesbestselling author Mia Sheridan.
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.
I’m a skim reader, I don’t know if I do it because I’m always in a hurry or I’m just too freaking impatient to see how everything goes down but I do it with pretty much every single book I read. Mia Sheridan is one of the very few authors who can make me want to read every single word, comma, exclamation mark, question mark and point in her books. I will DEVOUR every single little detail in her books, having said that… I unfortunately wasn’t able to resist my skim reading habits while reading More Than Words.
When I started reading this book, I loved everything. I loved the characters, writing, pacing and literally everything so much that the thought of skipping a single word flew out the window. However, once I hit the middle of the story my mind started wandering and drifting away from the story because I started disliking Callen, the hero. I cannot say exactly why because I think I’d be spoiling the story a little but I just COULDN’T with some of the decisions he took. I never say this because for some weird reason I think I’ll hurt the characters’ feelings (don’t judge me) but for a while I thought Jessie, the heroine, deserved someone better than Callen. Don’t worry though! By the end he redeemed himself (kinda) and I went back to loving him and his sweet way with words.
Overall, this book was lovely and I throughly enjoyed reading it. It is a hopeless romantic’s dream. It is heartfelt, romantic with a capital r, full of emotions, angst and… this is going to be a shocker (NOT)… it is written by the queen of romance, Mia Sheridan. One can never go wrong when picking up a book written by her!
