Review: More Than Enough by Jay McLean

There’s no emotion greater than fear.
No ache greater than grief.
No sound greater than silence.
***
I’m grateful he showed up on my doorstep,
pissed off and angry at the world.
If he hadn’t, I wouldn’t be here.
And I don’t just mean here on this journey with him.
I mean here, in this world.

I wonder what events in all our lives—hers included—are The Turning Points? The points where we all determine that the fear of our pasts and the uncertainty of our futures are greater than our need for happiness.
Here.
Now.
While time and everything around us stands unmoving… who’s to say we can’t have it all?
***
We wanted it all.
We wanted it with each other.
We thrived on the chaos we created.
And ignored the Mayhem that ensued.
Because falling in love was easy.
But sometimes, love isn’t enough

More Than Enough was my most anticipated release of the year. I waited with bated breath to see if I would score an ARC and honestly I nearly expired with excitement when it showed up on my kindle. I read this book in a couple of days and loved it! It was a swoony romance with heavy emotional baggage and a beautiful starring couple. I loved spending time back in the More World!

This review is going to be hard to word without giving away spoilers. I can’t tell you who the girl is and to say much of anything about her would give away spoilers. I will say this – I loved how the author was authentic and real about the relationship between the characters. The way the characters’ romantic story lines played out was both inspiring and surprising – like a breath of fresh air in an often clichéd book world.

Dylan is known as the “silent” More Man. He’s never had much to say throughout the More novels. We know his relationship with Heidi has been drama-filled throughout the previous four novels, but beyond that we don’t know much about him. He gives off a strong and silent vibe. I loved getting into Dylans head and finding out more about him. Cam will ALWAYS be my number one but Dylan is a close second now.

More Than Enough was heavy with emotion from start to finish. So heavy, that at times I felt almost suffocated under the weight of it – which is a sign of how gorgeous Jay McLeans writing is. It was both heartbreaking and uplifting all at once and the story ended on a perfect note.

More Than Enough is the conclusion to the More series. It finished on a brilliant note and the characters stories all wrapped up nicely. Obviously I’m devo’d that we’re saying goodbye to this world and these characters but to be honest the More World has a hold of me and I don’t think I’ll ever truly let it go.

“It’s a good life. A damn good life.”
