Overview

When Mikayla imagined her prom night, she envisioned a fairy-tale evening full of romance. So when betrayal and tragedy come in quick succession, Mikayla is completely destroyed. Suddenly, everything she loved and everyone she relied on are tragically, irrevocably gone.

Jake, a handsome boy she just met, happens to witness her loss. With no one to turn to, Mikayla is forced to depend on this near stranger and his family, and he in turn is determined to take care of her. But Mikayla—thrust into adulthood with no one to guide her—is desperate to contain her grief and hide what she considers to be her weakness. Mikayla and Jake both want more, but despite their growing closeness and intense chemistry, she tries to keep her distance and protect her heart. As he does everything in his power to win her trust, Mikayla must choose between remaining alone and safe or letting love in.

    Some people might say that the premise for this book is crazy...

    Some people might say that the premise for this book is crazy...that this would never happen to two seniors in high school.  But let me tell you, their story is MORE THAN believable.  Of course, these things don't happen to many 18 year olds, but in the end, every last piece of the story is possible.  It breaks your heart, but then helps you pick up the pieces.  I love the characters!  And I definitely cried while reading this one!

    Mikayla thinks she's already well on her way to happily ever after.  She's been dating her boyfriend forever, they're going to the same college next year, and it's prom night!  But what goes down at the restaurant before they even arrive at their prom will start the ball rolling on a night that will forever change Mikayla's life.

    Jake is going to his own prom stag...not exactly by choice, but alone, nonetheless.  After watching what happened to Mikayla at the restaurant, and then finding himself alone with her, he asks her if she'll come to his prom with him instead of going to hers.  Who knew that asking her that one little question would also change Jake's life irrevocably.

    Mikayla is about to lose almost everything she's ever known...but she will also gain new friends, new family, and love. Jake feels like he has nothing to lose helping Mikayla out...but what he didn't count on was the possibility of losing Mikayla.

    I SERIOUSLY cannot wait for the next book in this series!

    So-so.

    Kind of a teaser story. Not much of plot. A lot of rambling through and maybe we'll get "together" this time. And the ending - not very satisfying. Plain and simple, too much game playing. I did like Jake, his devotion and his POV. I rate the book as so-so.

    S.A.K.

    Here's the thing

    I loved Jake. I loved his friends. I loved his family. I loved how he was with Kayla. But his overreacting drove me up the wall! And Kayla - I get it she's traumatized but geesh you'd think she would know to embrace life and how precious it is. I didn't understand how disconnected the parents are - 18 does not make someone an adult. Overall I think this book had something special to it. A quality you don't often see in writers. And that's the ability to subtly show the reader development and life lessons about cherishing what you have and the value of true friendships.

    I absolutely adored this story! Through a series of tragic event

    I absolutely adored this story! Through a series of tragic events Mikayla and Jake are brought together. It doesn't take long for the two to realize they have a strong connection. But will outside forces keep them apart. I got this book from a giveaway. And I couldn't put it down. I thought Jake and Kayla were such great characters. Can't wait for Logan's story to come out.

    Good

    It was good, but I am not sure it was as mind blowing as the other reviews said. Tragic..yes. A great leading man...for sure! Great supporting characters (jakes friends)! It may have worked better for me if they were a few years into college instead of just getting out of high school. I ended up skimming through some of it closer to the end with all the back and forth jealousy and silent treatments or failure to communicate well. That being said, I will look for Logan's story and read it as well!!

    OH MY FREAKIN WOW!!!

    I loved, loved, loved this book. I read about 20 to 30 books a month and I have to say this is one of THE BEST stories I have ever read. It made me feel such a plethora of emotions. At first I was angry and then I was bawling, sobbing,.... literally almost hyperventilating crying. My heart was breaking. Then there's this overwhelming heartwarming love. And then I laughed so hard I was crying again. LOL. The characters in this story feel so real. As though they could be my neighbors. Mikayla is amazing. She sweet, kind, caring, loving, forgiving, and incredibley strong. Jake is the most gorgeous, sweetest, beautiful, kindest, giving, loving man ever. And so strong. His parents and Ju-ju are great. Then there's Lucy & Cam, Heidi & Dylan, and Logan. All of Jake's friends. They are a screamin hoot! So hilarious! Had me laughing so hard. The sexual chemistry between Mikayla and Jake is so hot. The suspence in this story is so intence at times that I had to take deep breaths to calm down. And I LOVED IT ALL SO MUCH. Then the ending. Megan. I would never have let her walk away free. This is an amazing book. I HIGHLY revommend this book to everyone. The author did such an amazing job writing this I cannot wait to read more. BRAVO

    5 amazing stars




    This book was so much more than what I was expecting and I loved it. It is safe to say that Jake Andrews deserves to be on the best book boyfriends list. He was amazing and so caring to Mikayla, a young girl who literally has had to live through one of the most horrible days one can have. Even though some of the book may be a tad unrealistic, his parents, I loved it. Jake's friends were also amazing, and OMG...Logan's POV in the epilogue... I so cannot wait for his story. 




    Anyhow, I went through every emotion reading this book. My heart broke, I laughed my head off (Lucy is an awesome character), and I got angry. Oh, and I forgot to mention that McLean can really write characters with awesome sexual chemistry. So there you have it, and what more could your want from a book. A must read book in my opinion.

    more from this reviewer

    I love when a book takes me by surprise and More Than This certa

    I love when a book takes me by surprise and More Than This certainly did that. Makayla Jones is at the end of her senior year of high school and things are going pretty great. She has been with her hunky boyfriend James for four years, she's got her best friend Megan by her side and they are all going to UNC together in the fall. But in just one night, everything she knows shatters.

    Jake Andrews is a pretty big deal. Also a senior, he has a full baseball scholarship to UNC and there is no doubt he will go pro one day. When he sees the beautiful broken girl standing in front of him, he can't help but reach out to her and help take away some of the pain. When the night of betrayal also becomes a night of tragedy, he stands by her, holds her and does everything he can to get through the most difficult time in her life. But when a brand new friendship starts to become more, how will they know that what they feel is real and not just because of what they experienced together. After everything Makayla has been through, will she be able to love again? Or will she always be a broken little girl?

    More Than This completely sucked me in from the very beginning. I barely even took a break until I was done. The range of emotions I felt while reading this book was just... wow. First you are hit with anger and hurt for the betrayal Makayla suffers. I saw it coming just before it happened and I wanted to hurt someone.

    Then she meets Jake and his friends and you are happy for her because she found good people to hang with the rest of the night. She has found real friends with Jake, Logan, Cam, Lucy, Dylan and Heidi. Real friends who seem to really care, even though they just met, and help her turn this crap night into something fun. Jake is really sweet and attentive (and hot) and it is impossible not to fall for him. Just as things were going good, Kayla's world ends and her heart is ripped from her chest and you feel every ounce of her pain. I have to say, I was not expecting it at all.

    Jake and his family go way above and beyond for Kayla in helping her grieve, helping her love and move on. As they spend more time together, Jake isn't shy about letting how he really feels for her show. But Kayla has to fix the broken in her first before she can give all of herself to him.

    I love a book that makes me really feel, even when some of what I feel is pain and anguish. Because along with that pain, I got to watch Makayla grow and overcome to find her happily ever after. Plus along with the hard stuff, there is a lot of good stuff. Happiness and humor and so much love. I cannot wait for book 2, More Than Her, which is Logan's story. The brief intro we get of him in the epilogue had my eyes widening in shock and I just know it is going to be another great read.
