Product Description

A sexy and emotional contemporary romance series by Shayla Black...

I’m Maxon Reed—real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success—my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.

Sassy college senior Keeley Kent accepts my challenge to learn how to become Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine—but I’m about to find out.

This book is the first in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.

This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers or cheating. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Keeley and Maxon!!! 11 April 2017
By Romance Between The Sheets - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Shayla Black started this series with a bang. Just like in past series, she makes characters complex that have you cursing them in one minute and cheering for them the next. She also gave us a cast of people that work perfectly in this story. The main characters are Maxon and Keeley. But there is also Griff's ex-girlfrient who assists Maxon with his business. And she also had his nephew. Rob also works with Maxon but he is driven by success and is cutthroat about it.

Maxon is everything that he is billed to be. I have to say that I didn't care for him too much in the beginning. His main goal is to be number one and he pretends to not care how he gets there. He doesn't want his brother Griff to take that title from him. But there is more to Maxon and he has to find his own road to forgiveness.

I loved Keeley from the very beginning. She was sunshine. I loved her personality and that her main goal was to be happy. I also really liked that fact that she thought that was everyone's goal. She really is a glass is half full type of person. It really had me wishing I could be more like her.

More Than Want You takes you on an emotional journey of what happens to a family when competition is prized above everything. Maxon and Giff's father is the real problem and it drives these brothers apart. Keeley is the exact opposite of Maxon but somehow they fit perfectly together. I could really tell the musical influences in this story. Keeley loves to sing but she sings what she is feeling in the moment. This series started strong and now I can't wait for Griff's story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Shayla Black Hit 13 April 2017

I loved this book from beginning to the middle to the end. I was charmed by Keeley Kent from the get go. Her positive outlook and determination to be happy made a very interesting. Maxon Reed's journey of discovering love was intriguing. So reluctant to feel anything but negative emotions, the realization that he loved Keeley was an eye opener for him.

Shayla Black is a favorite author. Her characters are believable, easy to identify with and most of all likeable. She captures your imagination with well thought and expertly crafted stories. Each book is pure reading pleasure.

Mason knows he is doomed when he finally talks to Keeley. But he is still determined to conquer the real estate world and one up his brother. Will he get over himself in time??? Or will this tear the family even further apart?

"I can't be with someone who wants revenge more than they want me."

FINAL DECISION: If you allow yourself to get over Maxon being a major jerk, this book is a wonderful journey for his character. He learns what is really important in his life. His relationship with Keeley is rough and imperfect and finally wonderful.

THE STORY: Maxon Reed is a man on a mission -- to get a deal from his estranged brother. Maxon is willing to do just about anything -- including finding a woman to distract his brother. When Maxon meets Keeley Kent and there is an instant attraction between them and he knows that she is perfect for his plan. After convincing the reluctant Keeley to give his plan a change, Maxon spends weeks tutoring Keeley in exactly how to appeal to his brother. The problem is that every moment they spend together brings Maxon closer to realizing that Keeley is perfect for him. But will Maxon give up his plan of revenge in order to get the girl himself?

OPINION: I don't mind heroes who are jerks in the beginning of a romance book as long as they don't end up that way. Maxon is a world class jerk (though his brother has him beat). Intensely competitive with his estranged brother, Maxon clearly has no morals about using people (despite his belief that he does). His competition with his brother is primary -- before friends, before love, before anything and everything. The good news is that this book just throws Maxon's world into disarray. It never goes where he plans. And he ends the book a better person who is capable of love.

Keeley is almost the opposite of Maxon. Altruistic, emotional, willing to help and do anything for those she cares about. I like how she operates as Maxon's guide and conscience in many ways. While we get a bit from her point of view, the book is really about Maxon's journey (because he is the one who really needs the help). Keeley is more of a free spirit than the career driven Maxon, but she is also happier.

The relationship between Maxon and Keeley is complicated by Maxon's own inability to understand what he wants and needs and how to get there. I enjoyed seeing Maxon breaking down. He has a nasty background which doesn't excuse his behavior but makes it more understandable. The focus in this book is really on Maxon getting himself right and how his relationship with Keeley is the catalyst for that.

I enjoyed this book more as I got into it (Maxon was hard to like at first). By the end of the book, however, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

WORTH MENTIONING: This book also introduces the romance that is the subject of the second book in the series.

CONNECTED BOOKS: MORE THAN WANT YOU is the first book in the More Than Words series.

STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
3.0 out of 5 stars Liked, not loved 4 June 2017

I have to start by saying that I just love Shayla Black and have read all her books, historical and wizard related included. And loved them all. This book I did not love 😕(it really makes me sad). I just could not connect with the characters at all. Maxon struck me as sort of a douchebag, and Keeley totally gave me hypocrite vibes at the end. I also could not get into it. It took me days to read it, it just didn't leave me wanting for more and was relieved when I finally made it to the end.

About 90% of the book is told from Maxon's POV. I usually like the guy's POV better than the girl's. However, with this book, it threw me off. It really made Keeley so unlikable, and, when the bomb dropped at the end, I could not stand her at all. I also felt like I didn't know her much, and what I knew, I did not like.

This story follows Maxon and Keeley who meet by chance at a dive bar. He is attracted to her, but also realizes that his brother, who he does not speak with and is also his business competition, would be very attracted to her. He hatches up this plan to send her in as a decoy to throw his brother off balance so he couldn't focus on business, which, in turn, will help Maxon with a major business transaction. He ends up sleeping with Keeley, after which, against his better judgement, he presents Keeley with his plan. She puts up a fight (sort of), but, in end, she agrees to help Maxon out in exchange for business advice as well as a promise that he will meet with his brother, Griff, to talk and hopefully make up.

In the end, and possible spoiler alert here, Maxon ends up from being the big player to being played. I really did not understand why he wasn't a little more upset about it when he realized that. Because I was on his behalf LOL

With all that being said, I really am looking forward to reading Griff and Britta's story. I'm sure it'll be quite an adventure for Griff to redeem himself to the woman he once loved, and definitely did wrong to.
