I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.
Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.
More Than Need You is part of the series More Than Words and that is the perfect way to explain the theme for this book. A relationship is built and destroyed and rebuilt again on more than words. It takes love, anger, forgiveness and happiness. This book has it all.
Griff is amazing even with all his faults. He made a huge mistake 3 years ago and ruined the most important relationships in his life. He has the sins of his parents on his shoulders and that has continued to eat away at him and affect his relationships with the people who are closest to him. Griff wants to be a better man for Britta but it doesn’t happen overnight. And he has a lot to learn.
Britta is the love that Griff pushed away. There is a lot of reasons why Griff did what he did but Britta now wants to protect herself and her son. She doesn’t want to put herself in the same position to get hurt again. Plus so much time has passed that old wounds have festered and she doesn’t know how they can heal.
Keeley and Maxon also give great advice to Griff, especially Keeley. She is a force to be reckoned with. She gives Griff something he desperately needs, a friend. She is that ear that all of us need from time to time and she isn’t afraid to tell Griff that his is being stupid.
I love this book!!! It has all the elements that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster. I really adored Griff. Make no mistake, he is an arsehole but he had a chance to look inside himself to become something more than his father. I understand Britta in the way that she didn’t want to put her heart on the line again and just so much time had passed.
I also really love how music is weaved throughout this story and series. I can tell how important music is to Shayla Black. She is really knowledgable and her playlist is amazing and fits perfectly to the mood and tone of the book.
We also get some insight about Harlow and the man she is about to marry. The bothers are already expressing their thoughts. I can’t wait!!!
