More Than Crave You

By Shayla Black


I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined Nia could consume me. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart. Can I prove I more than crave her before it’s too late?


Just like all of the books in the More Than Words series, More Than Crave You takes you on an emotional journey. I love the way Shayla Black captures the personalities of all these characters.  They really do come to life.

I think More Than Crave You effectively shows that the people around us help shape how we relate to other people.  When you are never shown what love really can be then it might be difficult to recognize it when it stares you in the face.

Evan is an interesting character.  I had real compassion for him but I also thought he was kind of a jerk at first. But after really finding out how he grew up and then the kind of marriage he had before his wife and child were killed, my opinion quickly changed.  He had to learn about real love and was getting a crash course.

Nia is an amazing character.  I wish I was more like her.  She is very strong and knows that she can’t marry someone like it was a business transaction.  She had love in her life and wouldn’t settle unless it was reciprocated to her.

This book has so many levels to it.  It explores the relationships that are formed between friends, new found siblings and lovers. The social dynamic is set up so skillfully and you really got an understanding why these characters react the way the do.

Plus there was an extra bonus to this book.  There was a little crossover action with another series which now makes me want to read that series again.
