No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Timesbestselling author Mia Sheridan.
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 by Mia Sheridan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳Childhood friends, missing each other for years after growing apart, with the help of fate they are brought back together again in this heart-warming and fluttering romance novel by Mia…
➳Have you ever read the novels by an author that instantly you know you will forever start bawling your eyes out with tears of joy and sadness? My go to author in this category would one hundred percent have to be MIA SHERIDAN since all her novels always seem to bring the worst tears in me and make me look like a lunatic. Guess what? I honestly do not care as long as the story captivates me and my tears are worth the falling. MORE THAN WORDS has become that appreciative in regards to being emotional. Once you start this novel there is no turning back for sure. Callen and Jessica are two fascinating characters that are drawn to the imagination of the reader through the best of ways, both romantic and emotionally. A heartbroken childhood is what brings them together to that one abandoned train boxcar. The fairytales, tales old as time, expressing the beauty of them all, Jessie and Callun learn that confiding with each other is what each other’s hearts need to mend their childhood hearts over the actions their parents have caused. With their love of music though, Callun and Jessica also learn how to put together the broken pieces of their broken minds.
➳After a year of their friendship, and after one sudden, unexpected kiss, Jessie and Callun end up turning different paths due Callun’s father moving away from their current small town. Years later, after meeting through paths that non of them saw coming, Callun and Jessie find each other in Paris one unexpected night. Now as adults, their childish admiration towards each other still lingered, but the attraction and lust also took over their body’s reactions and their thoughtful minds. Jessica, being the smart one about knowing whats best, she wants to keep their new found attraction to the midst of not expanding it since she does not want to get her heart broken by Callun. He has other ideas though, being known as a jerk, moody, and famous song writer, he does everything he can to try and swoon her over and make her feel at least something towards him. With Callun though, you can tell his internal struggles at trying to figure out whether he wants to spend time with Jessie for the long haul. He doesn’t feel or think he deserves her in any way;
“… and in that moment I did feel like a prince. Her prince. My heart beat to the music that began to rise inside me once again. Pulsing. Sultry. Both dark and beautiful, speaking of this thing between us…”
➳There are many messages behind this novel in which one learns to admire and learns to adore more and more of Mia’s writing. That being said, the phrase “actions speak louder than words” is one that should be taken into consideration when starting this novel filled with so many majestic, and romantic sceneries. Not many would be able to handle the emotional aspect of it, but that’s what’s so elegant about Mia’s writing— everything she has to acquire, she expresses it very thoroughly to the reader through her writing in an imagery way.
➳Overall, this romance novel has once again captivated the aspect of knowing what would be correct to call a romance of proper priorities. Everything about it has expressed to me that Mia’s writing will never stop being one of my favorites and of course it will never stop making me cry my eyes out. Thank you to the wonderful Estelle at FOREVER ROMANCE for sending me a copy of this beauty in which I cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on.
