ARC Review: MORE THAN LOVE YOU by Shayla Black

I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

More Than Love You is a sexy and emotional standalone novel in the More Than Words Series.

REVIEW


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is so much I can say about this story and my love for all things Noah... his dedication, determination, his capacity for love, his passion and compassion, his understanding, his patience, his respect, his love of family, his sexiness, his everything… but to avoid spoiling this beauty, I’m going to keep this brief. More Than Love You was a sweetly romantic and erotic tale that made me ache, swoon, and check my surroundings more than once because HOLY COW these two shared SPARKS!! Told mostly in Noah’s voice, we get the unique perspective to watch him discover something more than the instant gratification from the flesh. We get to see him find love in all of its intricacies and complications; witness his frustration and elation with every triumph and pitfall in his relationship with Harlow; and while Harlow had the tendency to make me so freaking mad most of the time, I found lots of things about her to like as well.

Usually the greatest rewards come from the harshest of hardships and Noah and Harlow could definitely testify to that. This story was about so much more than a cocky retired NFL quarterback conquering a stubborn woman set against opening her heart to him. It was more than just about his persistence to win her over, one day at a time. It was more than just sex or feelings or drama or angst. It was about pain, lies, betrayal, deceit, the price of celebrity, bitter heartache, family, and most of all trusting in yourself and in the ones you love.
