Review: Moore to Lose by Julie A. Richman

Moore to Lose (Needing Moore Series, Book #2)
By: Julie A. Richman
Continuing the fight for their happily ever after that began in Searching for Moore, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver struggle to overcome the ghosts and baggage they accumulated during their time apart.

Exploring the missing 24 years when they were separated, Moore to Lose follows Mia's journey from heartbroken teen to kickass businesswoman to her emotional reunion with Schooner and the exploration of the love that was ripped from them.

But is their love really strong enough to overcome the damage of those missing 24 years or will they continue to be ripped apart by pasts that can't be changed?

This is Book 2 in the Needing Moore Series. This is not a stand alone book. It is meant to be read after Searching for Moore.
You have to read Searching For Moore before you read this and you can thank me now because you will love it :)  Searching For Moore is a story about a couple who fell in love in college but a scheming ex-girlfriend intervenes and Mia flees to another city.  They are apart for 24 years and one day a friend request pops up on Facebook, Mia accepts and reconnects with Schooner.
This is the second book in the series and I completely inhaled this book  in one sitting because I was dying to know what was going to happen after Julie left us with the cliffhanger in Searching For Moore.

So we are gently abseiled off that cliff at the beginning of this book and then we go back to the beginning again, kind of.  This story is basically Mia's backstory, filling in the 24 years that her and Schooner were apart from each other.

She has a new and friends life at her new college and dates a few guys. We follow her success launching her own company and meet more men she dated.  There are moments over this time when she just feels so lost and makes really stupid/dangerous decisions. All the way through these times in her life she can't let go of the love she has for Schooner.

This is beautifully told story and there is one particular moment during one of her relationships that was so heartbreaking that  it had me in tears  - you will need tissues.

We do end back up at the present day again near the end of the book but then we are left with another cliffie and damn it we have to wait and see what will happen in the next book.

Loved this and can't wait for 'Moore' and hopefully a HEA for Schooner & Mia.
