For every choice you make there are rewards,
or there are consequences.
It was my choice to walk away the first time.
And my choice to chase her the second.
But sometimes you don't get a choice,
and all you get are the consequences.

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Unless that someone is Logan Matthews.
Because loving him didn't give me
the strength to walk away.
It didn't give me
the courage to fight for him.
And when it was over,
all it gave me was a broken heart.

Logan Matthews is what you would call an irresponsible manwhore. The day he gets kicked out of his frat dorm for sleeping and leaving this frat-mate’s sister high and dry, he calls in a favour from a friend, who re-directs him to a couple of friends who are desperate to find someone to rent a room in their apartment.

What he never would have expected, is that the guy he called was actually the brother of Amanda Marquez, someone Logan has had a crush on for ages before college, dated for a few weeks, and then left without ever saying a word or calling back. Amanda still holds a grudge and a broken heart towards the guy she took a chance for, and thanks to whom she learned a hard-learned lesson. But all of Logan’s memories and feelings never died down, and he will try to make it up to her as best as he can… Will it ever be enough?

Let me start by saying that what I didn’t like about More Than Her was not the fact that it told Logan’s story, but the fact that it was a messy transition from More Than Him. I had read the latter maybe a month or 6 weeks prior to starting More Than Her, and while most series provide a smooth transition into the new book, this one threw you into the deep end dropping numerous names without giving you the slightest bit of context (I don’t even know if all mentioned characters even had a context). It was really too much and too confusing.

That, coupled with the fact that the writing kept jumping from past to present and back, and from male-POV to female-POV and back, made the book even more annoying to read. At first I thought it was a nice way of suspensefully and little by little uncovering what had happened between Logan and Amanda, but after a while it was just as confusing as heck.

Then, I was pretty annoyed with the storyline, which is just drama drama drama, up until the last line. Unnecessary and unspectacular drama, if I might add – adding complications over complications which just turned the book into an unbelievable mess. I really had to force myself to read this book until the end (I was really close to a DNF) because I was expecting something huge to happen and clear everything up, but it wasn’t spectacular nor a closure at all.

So all in all, I am rather disappointed in this book. But since I am a glutton for punishment, of course I already bought the sequel, hoping it might be better. I will definitely keep you posted. But I definitely would not recommend More Than Her, unless you are a die-hard fan of the author, or just like confusing and frustrating reads…
