No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Times bestselling author Mia Sheridan in this emotional love story about destiny, second chances, and the healing power of love.
The moment she met Callen Hayes, eleven-year-old Jessica Creswell knew he was a broken prince. Her prince. They became each other's refuge, a safe and magical place far from their troubled lives. Until the day Callen kissed her--Jessica's first real, dreamy kiss--and then disappeared from her life without a word.
Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen's music is now locked deep inside, trapped behind his own inner demons. It's only when he withdraws to France to drink his way through the darkness that Callen stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. His Jessie. And she still tastes of fresh, sweet innocence . . . even as she sets his blood on fire.
But they don't belong in each other's worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes. Too many secrets. Too many lies. All they have is that instinctive longing, that need--and something that looks dangerously like love.
More Than Words is a childhood friends to lover romance that will make your heart soar and hurt it all at the same time. I’m going to be very honest here and I know that this isn’t fair to the author. I actually really think this book could have spoken to me more than it did if I didn’t just come off of one of the most emotional books I’ve ever read right before I started it. The writing is brilliant and the storytelling is flawless. I was connected to Jessie and Callen from the start. I honestly just think I was emotional spent. For that, I apologize dear Mia Sheridan and I will most definitely be going back and reading it again soon.
I think one of my favorite things about Jessie and Callen’s story is from the moment they met, they accepted each other. They were each others rocks and watching that foundation build was beautiful. It only makes you fight harder with them later down the road.
I also really loved the historical part of it. With Jessie’s job and the history that she becomes a part of. I sort of geeked out over it, which is saying a lot because I used to HATE history! Her passion made me passionate about it.
Oh..and can we talk about Callen’s assistant. When she was checking his text messages for him and relaying things on, I was dying. Dying. She was so freaking hilarious.
If you are looking for a soulmate romance with two unique people who have been in love since they were children but overcome a lot to be together in the end, then this is the book for you. It will make you feel, so be prepared for that.
