More Than Him (More Than #3) by Jay McLean
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
"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.
*Note: This is the third book in a series. It is not a standalone. You should have at least read the prior book, More Than Her, before reading this one. Some spoilers ahead.
Wow I am really loving this More Than series. Every book is better than the last. Oh Logan you kill me. You are so broken and vulnerable and I loved you so much. Even more than the last book. Something about seeing him so broken just really got to me. He is such a good person even if he doesn't always think so and I loved him to pieces. He deserves all the happiness in the world.
More Than Him is the continuation of Logan and Amanda's story. I was really dreading reading this one, but also couldn't wait to see what happened. I figured these two would have a lot to work out. I mean the end of the last book was the third time Logan had gotten Amanda to trust him then walked away breaking her heart. How do you go back from that? How do you get her to let you in again? Oh, this book was heartbreaking at times, but so so beautiful. I loved every minute of it. Amanda is an amazingly kind and caring person and is just so wonderful with Logan. These two don't always have it easy, but they are truly meant to be.
Logan left Amanda at the end of the last book to try and protect her. His past came back to haunt them, hurting her in the process (even though he tried to keep her safe) and breaking him. He goes back to where he was when he first came to live with his dad. It was really heartbreaking to read him. He was so broken, so defeated, but he never stopped loving Amanda. He just didn't know how to put himself back together again so he could be with her. He needed time and space and oh I loved reading his story. He was just so adorable when he was broken. I wanted to wrap him up in all the hugs and make everything better for him.
Amanda also has a hard time letting go of Logan. He got into her heart and doesn't seem to want to leave. She knows she should try and move on, after all he left her again without a word, but she just can't. She loves him still and she can't help that. I did really love how Amanda and Logan's dad started a friendly relationship. They both miss him so much sometimes it is nice to be around someone else who understand. Who makes the pain hurt just a little but less. It was sweet seeing her help him just as much as he was helping her.
When Logan finally returns he knows he will have to try and win over Amanda again. She is angry with him, and he understands. Although Amanda surprised me. For as much as I thought she wouldn't/couldn't forgive him, she is very understanding once she knows what is going on. She sees how broken he is and knows she can help him. Really there is just a connection between the two of them. No matter how much either of them might have tried to fight it it is impossible when they are in the same place. They were simply amazing together. Logan was so cute and Amanda was awesome with him. They just work. I loved this story. Every heartbreaking minute of it. I loved seeing Logan figure things out and become that strong, confident guy again. And I loved seeing Amanda be there for him every step of the way. It was adorable and sweet and amazing.
