More Than Words
by Susan Child
Release Date October 20, 2016
It was just fun & games… until it got serious.
There are reasons you’re not meant to fall in love with your best friend. The big one would be watching as he introduces you to a skinny blonde. A week away to drown my misery—with lots of wine—seemed like a good idea. Well, that was until my infatuation showed up. That one steamy encounter changed everything.
There’s a reason you’re not meant to sleep with your best friend. Because once you do, nothing will ever be the same again.
While I normally have no issues with novellas, for some reason, More Than Words fell a little short for me. I really wanted to like it because I absolutely adore friends to lovers stories but I had a hard time connecting with the characters. I just really felt as though I was missing pages of the book. There were some definite steamy scenes within though. So if you’re a fan of steam without a whole lot of story backing them up, this could work for you. I just was looking for more depth and history. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
When Susan was in high school, she never really liked to read, but when she was a child she did. Go figure. It wasn’t until after she graduated that she caught the reading bug. Susan had to go to a book store to sell off her text books and a particular book caught her eye. This book stood out from the other second-hand books because it had a pink cover. It was only a couple of dollars, so she thought, “Why not?” But she couldn't quite bring herself to read her bargain book. It had a pink cover!
Then, after it tormented her for three weeks, she finally picked it up and... could not put it down. Susan finished it in two days!
After Google-ing the author and found that she’d written a heap of books for Harlequin Mills & Boon as well as Single Titles. So of course Susan had to buy all her other books! And when she realised that there were other Mills & Boon authors out there, she just had to search out their books, too. And she loved them!
Susan got a ton of inspiration from those books. But the most important thing she realized was that she wanted to write those books, too. She wanted to be a Paranormal author! Because let's face it, who doesn't like things that go bump in the night?
