More Than Her (More Than #2) by Jay McLean
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
"For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction."
For every choice you make there are rewards,
or there are consequences.
It was my choice to walk away the first time.
And my choice to chase her the second.
But sometimes you don't get a choice,
and all you get are the consequences.
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Unless that someone is Logan Matthews.
Because loving him didn't give me
the strength to walk away.
It didn't give me
the courage to fight for him.
And when it was over,
all it gave me was a broken heart.
*Note: This is the second story in a series. It can be read as a standalone, but would be better if you read book one, More Than This, first.
Gah! That ending!! I need to get this written so I can go and read More Than Him asap! I must find out what happens next!
More Than Her is the first part of the story of Logan and Amanda. You get hints that something happened between the two of them, but Logan blew it and now Amanda doesn't trust him. I was really curious to see what happened, why did Logan stop trying to be with her back when whatever happened and will he be able to make it up to her? Can he convince her to trust him again and give them another chance? Oh I loved it.
When it was revealed what happened, what their history was, it was not what I was expecting. To have what happened happen and then nothing was kind of nice. It showed how strong their connection was even if Logan messed up at the time. Really he has not had the best early life, but he has a great dad now who is amazing with him. Who kind of makes up for his past, but a past like his does not always go away so easily.
I really liked Logan. He messes up often and he knows it, but he always tries to fix it. Getting to know him and see what he is really like was wonderful. He likes to joke around and make light of situations, but he can be much deeper. I loved how once he realized what he did and why he wanted to fix things. He wanted Amanda to forgive him and give him another chance. Another chance to prove how amazing they can be together and that he is a good guy. He is someone she can trust.
Amanda was a sweetheart. She sees Logan for who he is and how he is a great guy. She knows this, but it takes a bit before she is able to gamble her heart again. I loved how she tried to be so strong and not going to go there again with him, but she can't keep up her walls when he is just so sweet and kind and perfect for her. I loved this story. I loved watching these two fall even more for each other and learn their shared history. It was hard at first, with Logan so messed up, but he knows what and who he needs in his life. I loved the characters so much I just wanted everything good for both of them. They definitely deserve it.
Unfortunately things are not all sunshine and roses. I don't want to spoil anything but something that annoyed me in the first book in this series pops up again and was a bit lame, but made what happened in book one not as bad. But because of what is going on some of Logan's past comes back to haunt him and oh I hurt for him. That ending was killer. I need to see what happens next! I know it will probably get worse before it gets better, but I am ready for it now. Man. I understand what happened and why Logan does what he does, but that doesn't make it any less painful to read. I love when you are so invested in characters that any bad things that happen you take personally. I love feeling so much for them and wanting the best for them. I am kind of dreading the next book because I think it will be heartbreaking, but I also can't wait to see what happens. This was such a great read. Definitely a step up for me from book one. Now off to see what happens next in the story of Logan and Amanda.
