Synopsis

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.

My Review

More than Words by Author Mia Sheridan is an exceptional second chance at love story.

“I remember everything about you, Callen. You were my prince and my pirate, my savior and my friend.”

Young love. It can be one of the most alluring types, its innocence pulling you in and fixing you to the point and time of its beginning. Jessica and Callen had me from their first meeting. They bonded over family struggles and their need to escape. But mostly, they bonded because of an inexplicable pull that would not release them from one another.

“You weren’t nobody to me. To me you were everything.”

Jessie was an intelligent and beautiful young woman. She was finally making her dreams come true, doing what she felt she’d been purposed for. Her passion was a complete story in itself, driving her not only to fulfill her life’s calling, but also to find Callen. It is a mystery to me how Author Mia Sheridan can write such vulnerable but strong male characters, each one making us fall a little harder. Callen was like this, and although his struggles were stifling, from a reader’s perspective, they were what allowed him to see and appreciate rare beauty.

“I wanted to believe that love was the rarest of all flowers: it delighted in the sunshine but did not require it to grow and flourish.”

There were so many rich moments to cherish in this novel. Stolen glances, unspoken truths, lust-filled thoughts. And the setting! It would be unimaginable for two souls so intimately woven as Jessie and Callen to find one another in its allure and not give into passion. I fell in love over and over and over.

“I’d spent my life rejecting miracles. I’d spent my life snubbing fate. I’d spent my life sending boats away. One after the other. Fate hadn’t given up on me, though. Fate had sent Jessie over and over again, and, God, I wanted to be worthy of the gift.”

More Than Words was a story of a boy and a girl, a man and a woman, and destiny. It made my heart sing, and made my insides melt from the sweetness and absolute beauty it held. This is a must-read romance novel.

“What’s meant to be will always find a way.”
