Review—More than Him by Jay Mclean

“I ignored the ache in my chest and looked around the room.  Everything was so Logan.  Not a single thing out of place.  He was meticulous, and kept his room so clean.  I’d always wondered why he did.  Even his pool house was like this, but I’d figured his housekeeper kept it that way.  I’d never asked.  I should have.  I should have done a lot of things.  I guess it had never occurred to me that our time was limited.”

An entire year…an entire year of trying to put the pieces of their lives back together…but how does one put a shattered heart back together when half of it is missing?

“When I woke up in the hospital, the first thing I remember thinking was that maybe Logan and I were connected somehow, more than just a boy and a girl in love.  Maybe our souls were entwined—if he hurt, I hurt.  If he stopped breathing, I did, too.  If he died, maybe I would die with him.  I was alive. I was awake.  Which meant that he was, too.  But I didn’t see him; he never came for me.  He just left.”

With the help of various aspects in both Logan’s and Amanda’s lives, they learned to cope; to move forward, to live. 

Amanda; she wanted to hate Logan, wanted to forget him and just move one.  The hurt and betrayal she felt and still feels is almost unbearable as she struggles to hold herself together…if not for her then for those who love and care most about her.  Problem is, they know; and when she thinks they can’t hear her, they can…and there is nothing anyone can do to fix what is broken.  Except the one person who isn’t there.

“I understand that you hate me.  And as much as it hurts, I know that I deserve it.  But I just didn’t want to go another day without telling you, just in case you had any doubts, that there’s not a single part of me that feels that way about you.  All that we had, every moment we shared, it meant everything to me.  Everything you felt, I felt it, too.  It was the hardest thing to do, to walk away from you, from us, but I had to do it, because you deserve so much more.  And I hope you see that.”

Logan Matthews still struggles with his worth.  Struggles with the fact that he let someone love him and he wimped out, walked away.  And now, on the other side of the world for a year (six months longer than he should’ve been) without any contact to the one person he loves more than life…Logan finds solace in a simple act.  An act of not just expressing his feelings but sharing them once again with his other half, his air, his everything.  Now he just had to find a way to get back to her…and fight.

“When any part of us connected, it was more than just physical.  Or even emotional.  It was a collision of comfort and unease.  Gut-wrenching and heartwarming.  He did this to me.  We did this to each other.”

Best. HEA. EVER.  You had to know that Logan and Amanda weren’t done after More than Her…and with that ending, I would’ve been so upset had Mclean moved on from that.  This book was nothing short of amazing.  If it’s possible to love Logan any more, this book does it.  I could not put it down, and truthfully, want more…so much more!  I cannot wait for what comes next…Cam & Lucy (love that girl—she kept me laughing).  But back on topic, this book: AWESOME.  As the series continues, it just keeps getting better and better.

**5 More than Anything Stars**

"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.
