I’m Maxon Reed–real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success–my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.
Sassy college senior Keeley Kent accepts my challenge to learn how to become Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine–but I’m about to find out.
Shayla Black started this series with a bang. Just like in past series, she makes characters complex that have you cursing them in one minute and cheering for them the next. She also gave us a cast of people that work perfectly in this story. The main characters are Maxon and Keeley. But there is also Britta who assists Maxon with his business but she is also his brother’s ex-girlfriend. And she also had his nephew. Rob also works with Maxon but he is driven by success and is cutthroat about it.
Maxon is everything that he is billed to be. He is an asshole and I have to say that I didn’t care for him too much in the beginning. His main goal is to be number one and he pretends to not care how he gets there. He doesn’t want his brother Griff to take that title from him. But there is more to Maxon and he has to find his own road to forgiveness.
I loved Keeley from the very beginning. She was sunshine. I loved her personality and that her main goal was to be happy. I also really liked that fact that she thought that was everyone’s goal. She really is a glass is half full type of person. It really had me wishing I could be more like her.
More Than Want You takes you on an emotional journey of what happens to a family when competition is prized above everything. Maxon and Giff’s father is the real asshole and it drives these brothers apart. Keeley is the exact opposite of Maxon but somehow they fit perfectly together. I could really tell the musical influences in this story. Keeley loves to sing but she sings what she is feeling in the moment. This series started strong and now I can’t wait for Griff’s story.
