I have loved this entire series. I was extremely fortunate back when I was just starting this blog to get the opportunity to review More Than This (back when it had the original cover) and loved immensely. That story has stuck with me and I was so excited to read every book in this series. More than Forever was no exception. These characters have so much personality and feeling that I can easily picture them in my mind. The story easily pulled me in, enticing me to feel every emotion and share in these wonderful characters’ lives.
When they first meet, Cameron and Lucy are total opposites (at least in the world of high school). Cameron is into sports and is outgoing. Lucy is a bookworm and shy. I fell in love with these two immediately (although I’ve had a fondness for them since book 1). They have personality and depth. They really come across as people in real life and not just a fictional story. I found myself tearing up over Lucy’s loss and swooning over Cameron’s sweet and caring attitude towards not only Lucy, but also her brothers.
Jay McLean has managed, yet again, to take two fantastic characters, send them on life’s journey of love, and make you want to go along for the ride. The story tugged at my heart and pulled me into the More Series world yet again. This was a fantastic story full of sorrow, healing, love, discovery, and even a few scenes to get that blood boiling a bit. I absolutely loved this story along with the rest of the series and can guarantee I will be reading ANYTHING Jay McLean puts out in the future. Wonderful job and 5 out 5 palm trees!
“I hate that guy,” Logan jerks his head toward Jake and a new kid.
“The new kid? Dylan?”
He nods. “He thinks he owns the school.”
“Really?” I glare over at them. “Apparently he kills it on the basketball court, but I dunno.” I shrug. “He hasn’t said two words to me. He seems quiet.”
“Those are the ones you have to worry about, Cam. The quiet broody assholes get all the girls. Better watch him around that new girl of yours.”
I play dumb. “What new girl?”
“Shut up, asshole. You don’t think I notice you watching her all the fucking time?”
I lift my chin. “I think if there’s an asshole in this entire school to watch out for, it’s you.”
He laughs and adjusts his cap. “You don’t need to worry about me. I’m not into stealing my friend’s girls.” He shoves his hand in his catcher’s glove and smacks my arm with it. “Say the word. Claim her. I promise to stay away and I’ll make sure she’s untouchable to everyone else.”
“I’m not an asshole and she isn’t property. I can’t own her.”
“If that’s what you want.” He raises an eyebrow. “She’s cute. In a couple years she’ll be hot. Guys will be all over her. I’m just trying to help out.”
I think about what he’s saying, and he makes a good point. Only he’s wrong—she’s hot now. “Fine. I claim her. She’s mine.”
His smirk is instant. “You can’t own someone, you pig. She isn’t property.”
I laugh. “Fuck you.”
Jake struts over to us. “Ya reckon that new kid Dylan can hang out with us this arvo? He seems like a top bloke.”
Logan’s gaze moves to me, confusion clear on his face. I shrug. He lets out a chuckle before gripping both of Jake’s shoulders and shaking him gently. He looks him right in the eye, speaking slowly and clearly. “I have no idea what the fuck you just said.”
We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we’re back.
And we’re fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.
