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.
This book is the second in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.
This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)
More Than Need You is the second book in the More Than Words series and this time it is Griffin Reed and Brita Stone’s story. And, I was so ready to read this book!
We were first introduced to both Griffin and Brita in More Than Want You. Griffin Reed is Maxon’s brother who he was estranged from in book one due to a BIG misunderstanding. Now they are back being friends as well as brothers.
Maxon had not abandoned his friend Brita (who had been Griffin’s girlfriend and the mother of his child). Griffin finds out because he was finally ready to listen to Maxon that Griffin is a father. Now Griffin intends to show Brita and their son that he is ready for the responsibility of being a father and he wants Brita back.
Griffin really does have a lot of making up to do and the story goes on from there. I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to give anything away!
I really enjoyed this story and it was good to see both Maxon and Keeley again in this story. You can read both books as standalones but why would you. There is a lot of back story in book 1. Plus, you get to read more of Shayla Black’s books. I think that Shayla Black’s books are MUST Reads!!!
There is no cliffhanger and More Than Need You has an HEA.
I now need to read Book 3, More Than Love You and this will be Harlow Reed’s story. She is the sister to both Maxon and Griffin.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I give More Than Need You 5 stars.
