Review: More Than Enough (More Than #5) by Jay McLean

More Than Enough Title: More Than Enough
Author: Jay McLean
Series: More Than #5
Rating: 5 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Thereโ€™s no emotion greater than fear.
No ache greater than grief.
No sound greater than silence.
Iโ€™m grateful he showed up on my doorstep,
pissed off and angry at the world.
If he hadnโ€™t, I wouldnโ€™t be here.
And I donโ€™t just mean here on this journey with him.
I mean here, in this world.
I wonder what events in all our livesโ€”hers includedโ€”are The Turning Points? The points where we all determine that the fear of our pasts and the uncertainty of our futures are greater than our need for happiness.
While time and everything around us stands unmovingโ€ฆ whoโ€™s to say we canโ€™t have it all?
We wanted it all.
We wanted it with each other.
We thrived on the chaos we created.
And ignored the Mayhem that ensued.
Because falling in love was easy.
But sometimes, love isnโ€™t enough.

My Review:
After each book in this series, I gush buckets and I say this was the best one yet, and I think the next one just can’t live up to that. But here’s the thing – they do! Each book is better and better than the last (if that’s not an oxymoron) and More Than Enough was no exception.

Dillon has been the quietest of the boys but he has always intrigued me. In this book, we get to peel back the layers and meet the messed-up boy who doesn’t feel like he’s good enough. He soars, he stumbles, and then he gets back up on his feet, and I was with him every step of the way. I felt his pain, his joy, his heartache, his longing, his self-loathing, his desire to do the right thing. Man, Jay Mc Lean can really make you FEEL when you read her books. Emotional development is strong and multi-layered.

Riley is a broken mess when Dillon first finds her and I loved how he nurtured her back to life. But what I really loved was how she returned the favor when he needed her and how they saved each other. It was such a powerful message.

This book contains all the ingredients I’ve come to know and love about Jay’s writing and it sucked me in and devoured me whole. The entire time, while I was salivating over every page, I was also shedding tears because I did not want it to end.

If you enjoy well-written angsty-dramatic YA/NA contemporary romance then you need to read this series. It’s superb.

So sad it’s over but happy we have the Preston Brothers spin-off to take off the edge.

Thanks for hours of fab entertainment, Jay. Definitely a one-click author for me now.
