More Than Her (More Series, book 3) by Jay McLean
Publication Date: November 18, 2013
Published By: Jay Mclean


For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction."
For every choice you make there are rewards,
or there are consequences.

It was my choice to walk away the first time.
And my choice to chase her the second.
But sometimes you don't get a choice,
and all you get are the consequences.”

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Unless that someone is Logan Matthews. Because loving him didn't give me the strength to walk away. It didn't give me the courage to fight for him. And when it was over, all it gave me was a broken heart.

First of all I just want to say that opening my inbox this summer and returning Jay McLean’s message for me to read More Than This was the

I think Jay McLean likes to make me cry..hmm.. Well I did not all out bawl like I did with MTT but I did get all misty eyed. She knows how to hit me right in the FEELS with her characters. You see, when I thought it was impossible for me…Jay made it possible….. No one will understand this comment until you read the book. HINT: it’s in reference to a character. Ha, even with the hint you still probably won't understand after reading the book, well maybe a few.

I want to make this clear, More Than Her is not More Then This part 2. More Than Her IS VERY MUCH Logan’s book. Besides the steamy angst and the recurring set of characters this book stands on its own two feet. **lays right hand over heart** And I must say, getting to know Logan is a true pleasure!

In More Than Her Jay McLean takes us from past to present in the beginning of the book so that readers can catch up on what’s really going on with Logan and his love interest. I must admit I struggled with the beginning but uhh that’s mainly because I’m a nosy chick who wanted answers like NOW. Though, I must say reading the banter between Logan and his love interest made for some good entertainment.

Somewhere between 25 and 30%  you are caught up to the present and the book TAKES OFF like a rocket and when you get to the last page you will keep trying to scroll for MORE pages!!!

There is a lot of push and pull filled angst with the main characters; you constantly feel the will they or won’t they because he’s chasing and she’s running. However whenever he gets close enough she has no choice but to yield. Yes, Logan is that irresistible. *wink, wink*

We flashback to when she and Logan first meet in his pov. And witness first hand at how he fell hard and fast with a chick that seems to not be susceptible to his charms. *Smirks* Well, at least she is not allowing him to see that she is.

Could SHE be HIS MORE…

Giving in to Logan is more like something she simply could not help, the attraction is very mutual. She acknowledges this by giving him a chance. And everything is all good..until it’s not.

Logan F’s up BIG TIME. And correcting it proves to be a task but just like in the beginning when they met she learns that Logan is still very persistent. SHUT DOWN after shut down occurs with her vehemently against giving him that second chance until FATE intervenes. Well fate and Logan’s man whore ways get his butt in trouble. When a friend of a friend helps him out Logan is once again face to face with HER.

Ok I’m going to shut up about that and just give you my thoughts and feels now before I slip up.
You should however know that I plan to do an extended version of this review days after the release so that I may discuss the characters more freely.

My Thoughts
A-DORA-BLE these two are perfect for one another. Jay leaves no room for error when she put them together.  She also does an awesome job with Logan’s character and allowing us to get to know him more. I LOVED how he defined his life by the moments and how he explained it to HER in the book.

The Writing
For this to be her second novel I thought the writing was pretty damn good. I think it's safe to say that she has a keen trait for writing Angst. But not just angst.. Has anyone else ever read a line in a book and felt like it cut you and you jump back from the physical pain of it? That is exactly what happened to me as I read a certain scene.

This book was filled with some great moments. Hard hitting moments, EXPLOSIVE moments. Moments that make you take an extra gulp of air before moving on to the next sentence. There is this one scene where Logan is watching something happen..he takes it in and immediately reacts. **Snaps finger** And just like that with 5 words I was all misty eyed.

I gave this book 5 HEARTS because I LOVED IT!! Not only did I get teary eyed, I also laughed - A LOT, had a change of heart and fell for a chick. What? It happens,lol!
 McLean likes to tease you with her secondary characters, giving just enough to leave you wanting so much more and it’s a good thing she plans to deliver.

Now I need the next book ASAP!

My Ratings
Characters- Lovable
Writing Style- Will hit you right in the feels
Plot/Storyline- A young guy meets 'the one' and finds that catching and keeping her is proving to be the fight of his life
Steam Factor- Medium/Steamy on a scale of 1-10 I say 7.5
Overall- I LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!!!!

Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it!

He kissed me once, softly. " I want to feel everywhere he's felt. I want to replace the memory of his touch with mine. I don't want a single part of your body to no know my hands, do you understand?" His voice was low, husky, filled with desire.

My eyes drifted shut at his words. A sound of agreement leaves my mouth. He started kissing my jaw. "Has he kissed you here?" he whispered, his words muffled.

I nodded.

His lips moved from my jaw and worked their way down to my neck, kissing, licking, and slightly sucking. I could fell his hard-on against my stomach. One of the his hands moved to cup the back of my head, his finger curled into my hair, softly pulling and tilting my head back to give him better access.

I moaned.

His other hand moved under my shirt, the back of his fingers skimming my stomach before I felt him grip my side, just under my breast. I wasn't wearing a bra.

He released his grip on my hair just enough that my head fell forward; he kissed me again, just once. Then I felt his thumb rub against my already straining nipple. He made a moaning sound from deep in his throat, pushing into me. "Has he touched here?"

I nodded again.

He replaced his thumb with his hand, covering my entire breast, gently squeezing.

"Oh my God," I whispered. My chest heaved with every breath. My legs squeezed together trying to find some form of relief.

His other hand moved from my head, to under my shirt and onto my bare back. Then he started to slide it lower, and lower, slowly making it's way under my panties and onto my ass.

"Fucking shit, " he spat out, grabbing a handful. "Please don't tell me he's touched you here?"

I kept quiet.

"Fuck." He knew the meaning of my silence.
