I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.
Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.
This book is the second in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.
This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)
More Than Need You by Shayla Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After reading the first book in this series, More Than Want You, I was craving this book like a junkie in need of a fix. As soon as it landed on my Kindle, I re-arranged my life so I could devour it, and it was just as satisfying as I expected it to be. This book is a standalone and you don’t have to read More Than Want You to be able to follow the story, but you’re going to appreciate this book a whole lot more if you do. And since the first book was freaking amazing, I’m going to HIGHLY suggest you read it first.
I’m not going to say too much about the story. It is told strictly from Griffin’s POV. It picks up near the end of More Than Want You where Griffin learns that he has a son. He’s messed up with Britta in a major way and sets out to make things right. Well, it’s a rather steep uphill battle for this infuriating bastard so brace yourself for a delightfully intense and intriguing slow burn.
The thing I love most about this series, is that like a movie, the story has a soundtrack. Shayla Black has created playlists for both books, and has incorporated the sentiments of the songs into the story and the plot, bringing an extra dimension to the emotions in the story. As someone who LOVES music, I’m declaring this idea is “story planning level: genius.”
