MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4 Stars!
My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . .
The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.
A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.
My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.
I fell hard and fast.
He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.
Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.
Sexier than he’s ever been.
Provocative and commanding.
Successful and powerful.
The man I always knew he would become.
But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.
Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.
Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.
Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .
More of You – a Confessions of the Heart second-chance, stand-alone romance
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This book... so exceptionally good!
I’ve been a fan of this author for a long time and have been riveted by her stories. This book was no different. It was amazing and fun to read, and I couldn’t help but love and adore Jace in all his broken ways. Such a great story with intense, mysterious moments and a beautiful backstory that had my heart beating fast while it was also breaking.
More of You is definitely a one-click!
Faith Avery has just gone through huge tragedy and loss. Adding to that devastation is a looming threat she has no idea how to handle that’s putting both her and her young daughter in danger.
Jace Jacobs gets a call that changes everything for him. Dropping his life in Atlanta, he travels back to the one place he thought he’d never return, all to help save the one person who unequivocally believed in him and helped make him the wealthy and successful man he is today.
Only problem is, he left her standing alone ten years ago with broken promises and broken dreams, and he’s not sure she’s going to accept his help. And he’s pretty sure that once the full truth comes out and all his secrets are laid bare, she’s going to hate him even more than she already does.
I loved the backstory between Faith and Jace. Those flashbacks ... I can’t even...
The past was full of a sweet budding romance, two soulmates finding one another and of course, heartache. Jace came from a shady background and people didn’t think much of him or his family. Jace fiercely protected what he loved. And he only loved three things. His brother, his cousin and his girl. The sacrifices he made were heartbreaking but made for such complicated and emotional scenes. I loved them.
Jace was a broken boy who never felt he was worth much but was slowly being lifted by Faith. However, fate seemed to always have different plans for him. I just loved the way he was written.
The present was full of bittersweet feelings, intense longing and a slow build that led up to a fiery passion between Faith and Jace. I really liked Faith but I hated that she had been so blind to everything going on around her. She seemed so strong as a young adult. So sure and so full of life. When we see her as an adult, she’s been weighed down by life events and she’s unsure of herself. But she was a fierce mom and I respected that. In fact, I loved that about her.
As an adult, Jace was a changed man, too. No longer part of the downtrodden, he was successful and powerful. But he still didn’t truly believe he was worthy of love and acceptance. This is where I waver a bit. Without giving too much away, he felt he wasn’t worthy of a life with Faith, but he stepped aside and stayed away and let someone even more unworthy take his place. It just seemed so unlike what his character would do. He protected what he loved, and no doubt he loved Faith. Yet he stayed away after a huge betrayal, thinking she was better off with what she had?
I wished he’d played that a little differently. But the things he did when he finally showed up, melted my heart! I loved his interactions and quick fall with Faith and Bailey!
Oh, Bailey. This author knows how to write the sweetest and most adorable children in her stories. My walls crumble whenever she writes a scene with kids. Bailey was no exception. That little girl straight up stole my heart!
There was a well written, spooky kind of mystery happening all around Faith, Bailey, and Jace. There was intense, nail-biting suspense and tension-filled moments that were both thrilling and frightening. And there were some powerful moments filled with angst and pain.
And that ending? Perfection!
The Wrap Up:
Always a huge fan of this author, and I wasn’t disappointed with this one either. I loved the story and I loved the suspense. Like I said, definitely a one-click read!
