Overview

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we're back.
And we're fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.

    Eleventy-three Star review

    Where do I begin--Jay McLean--you rocked us with yet another book and you leaving me wanting more because this book, this series, your writing is amazing--so take a bow!!!


    In More Than Her I fell in love with Logan and Amanda as a couple. Their pain and the emotions evoked were heartbreaking. It continues in this book but most importantly this book focuses more on the healing and second chances. I loved it. Seeing what signigicant trauma can do to someone as cocky and self-assured as Logan once was, really made me feel for him. Amanda went through so much herself. I am so glad that Jay didn't overly draw out the coming together for this amazing couple. 

    Other things I loved in this story:

    My Matthew's: he was just all-around awesome. So caring and loving to Amanda, and loyal to his son. This line sums it up best for me,
    "'Dude, your dad's my hero,' Tristan declared. Yeah. He was mine, too" 

    Ethan: Best brother of the year award. OMG he was the greatest. He probably evoked the most emotion out of me because it wasn't the lovey dovey stuff. It was true pain because someone you loved was suffering. When he expressed it to Amanda and even moreso when he rather descriptively described it to Logan, AMAZING!!


    And finally, Cameron's POV in the Epilogue. I am so excited and cannot wait for Cam and Lucy's book!!!


    Another amazing book from this More Amazing series!!!!

    For real, y'all.  This book will make you laugh, cry, swoon, get angry...a little bit of everything!  I think the best way to show you this is to give you a peek at my Goodreads status updates from while I was reading this:

    "And now I'm effing crying again!!!"

    I was already in love with Logan after reading More than Her, but let me tell you, after reading his journal while he is 'away', I MORE THAN A LOT love Logan!  And of course, Amanda is wonderful too.  They both have struggled through this relationship, and sometimes you just want to smack one or both of them across the face, but it doesn't make me love them any less!

    I always try to point out a fantastic secondary character in my reviews, and I must say, Logan's dad is my new hero!  He is such a fantastic person, and an amazing dad; especially for being an adoptive father of an abused child, and being a single father on top of that!  Sometimes I wish we could have a book from his point of view. :-D

    Now that I've FINALLY been able to read this book, I CAN'T WAIT to read Cameron and Lucy's book!  (Which will hopefully be here July 1st!)  GO BUY THIS BOOK!  In fact, go buy the whole series if you haven't already!

    When I wrote my review for More Than Her, I said that the book a

    When I wrote my review for More Than Her, I said that the book and I never quite clicked, that it was a little too angsty for me to fully enjoy. Any bad feelings left with the ending of More Than Her were quickly forgotten as More Than Him got underway. Yes, there was plenty of the drama and angst I've come to expect from Jay's books, but in a good way. This book didn't hurt my heart as I read. Sure, it had a few gut wrenching moments, but they worked well in the frame of the story and didn't seem completely overwhelming this time around.

    "When I woke up in the hospital, the first thing I remember thinking was that maybe Logan and I were connected somehow, more than just a boy and a girl in love. Maybe our souls were entwined – if he hurt, I hurt. If he stopped breathing, I did too. If he died, maybe I would die with him."

    This book picks up where More Than Her left off. Amanda is released from the hospital after the horrendous events of the other book. She quickly learns that Logan has left town and she's absolutely crushed. With the help of friends, and somewhat surprisingly, Dr. Matthews, she begins putting herself back together. She doesn't get over Logan, but she puts on a fair show of trying. Then, at a party, she sees him and their journey back to each other begins.

    I'll admit that, while I found Logan swoony in More Than Her, I also thought he was a bit of a jerk. While he talked about how much he loved Amanda, he still enjoyed the attention of other girls a little too much for me, especially given his past. Unfortunately there were a couple cringe-worthy moments in this book that made me realize my initial impressions weren't too far off. Don't get me wrong, there's no cheating and there's no doubt he does truly love Amanda, but he needs to think a little more about her feelings. It was a bit of a turn-off to me. That said, he did really grow in this story. His time away from his real life and Amanda was spent grooming him into a better, more grounded person. His escape and his experiences truly led him back to Amanda and made them stronger in time.

    I adore Amanda. I have since she first appeared in the series. She's sweet and spunky, strong despite the horrific things she's been through. She's equal part girlie girl and tomboy. I find her relatable and I've always been solidly Team Amanda, so when Logan screwed up, it took a lot for me to forgive him on her behalf.

    "In the most horrible of circumstances, that's what you were to me – a light in the darkness. That's what you became, and that's what you stayed. In my head. In my heart. My light. Forever."

    More Than Him was a beautiful second chance love story. It was emotional and sexy. I couldn't put it down. It was also a relatively short and super quick read. Told from both Amanda and Logan's POV, I felt like I really got the full story. While their story was a bit rocky for me and I was unsure where they were headed after the first book, this one was a satisfying conclusion. Fans of the series will be pleased.

    As is beginning to be a trend with Jay's books, there was a teaser chapter from another character at the end of the book. I hadn't ever thought about the series continuing after the conclusion of Amanda and Logan's story, but I really hope it does. I adore the secondary characters in the teaser chapter and now I find myself desperately wanting more of them, too.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from the review copy and may differ from the final version.
