More Than Words by Mia Sheridan: For Jessie and Callum it was an instant click, they knew right from the age of eleven that they were meant to be in each others lives but all it took was one kiss to change everything between them, when Callum’s fathers job pulls them away fast and unexpectedly Jessie is left broken hearted and more guarded than ever.

To bad infamous bad boy charmer Callum has other plans, now that Jess is back in his life there is no way he is letting go off her again! If keeping Jess means his music is flowing again then there is nothing that Callum won’t do to prove to Jess that he is serious about her… but can undeniable passion and longing really keep them together when they no longer fit in each others worlds?

LOVED!! This book was incredible! More Than Words was the kind of book that you just wanted to read in one sitting, it was hard to put this book down once I started it and let me just tell you it was sooo worth staying up late to finish! Okay firstly the title of this book could not be more perfect, in terms on the general theme of this book it is so incredible on point. Sheridan really has done a fantastic job with this emotionally moving friends to lovers, second chance romance, this book really does check a lot of the boxes.

Jessie was such a beautiful leading lady, I loved everything about her character. Even after having the kind of childhood no one should have to go through she has grown in to a kind, caring and sensitive woman. I completely understood her reluctance in letting Callum back into her heart, not only after seeing her father repeatedly cheat on her mother but with how the media has portrayed Callum to be some man-whore. I do have to say that I liked that she made Callum work to prove himself to her. Now for our heartbreaker hero Callum, well this guy really had not had the best start in life. Still trying to quiet his abusive past demons Callum goes down a pretty dark road of drinking, partying and women, all of which only take him further way from the person that he really wants to be. Until the one person that silenced the noise walks back into his life.

These two characters could not be more perfect for each other, with both of them having similar childhood issues they connect easily, this only helps cement their connection and helps in letting them let each other in. I loved that they supported each other back as kids and now as adults they help heal each other once again. Their journey is not the smoothest but gosh was in intense. I loved the passion and tension that bounced between these two. It was clear as day that Callum never stoped loving Jess and boy was he determined to win his girl back. I just ate up their journey with all that angst and desire.

More Than Words is a must read, this book was an incredibly moving second chance romance that burns deep and hot as two lost souls find their way back to healing each other.

Book Info:

Publication: June 12, 2018 | Forever | Where Love Meets Destiny #3

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.
