‘Sometimes the beginning of love is just a simple matter of proximity.’
This story is like a fairy tale but a modern day take on a prince finding his princess. Not all stories like this end in a happy ever after though and sometimes there is no castle in sight either.
Callen and Jessie met when they were pre-teens. She had very few friends and Callen seemed like he could do with one. And so begun a beautiful friendship between them. Each of them had their own troubles at home and they looked for ...more
UGH! I just can’t do it. There is nothing that’s making me want to continue reading... I’m at the point where I'm trying to avoid having to read. That’s never a good sign. 😔. I know others have adored this but I don’t think it’s for me. I was a tad interested in the side story about Joan Of Arc. But not much else. I knew his “big secret” from the start.
I absolutely hate DNFing a book sent from the publisher. But it’s stealing my joy of reading trying to force myself to read it.... my apologie ...more
5+++ "I'm here to save you." Stars!
I don't have the words to adequately describe how much I loved this story. I loved everything about it. The main characters, the heartache, the heartbreak, the healing, the romance, the music, the history, the language, the spirituality, the scenery, the love story(s). The roses, the feather, the boxcar, the cave. So many wonderful quotes. Everything!
When I got to the end of this book, I just wanted to turn right back to page one to experience it all over agai ...more
Overall Opinion: This was an enjoyable read. Mia Sheridan is going to remain one of my go-to authors when I'm looking for a new book. She is great at giving us damaged characters with depth and making me feel for them! That being said, I don't think this is going at the top of my MS mental book list. It was enjoyable, I liked both characters, I felt...but something still felt missing. I wasn't completely consumed by this book like I've been with some of her other works. I can't even rea ...more
Callen Hayes and Jessica Creswell are the characters at the heart of this second chance love story. Jessica introduces Callen to a love of music and he gives Jessica her first kiss but disappears from her young life very soon after. Years later he gains recognition as well know composer and bad boy who is still suffering from demons of the past and desperately needs inspiration to make his music. Both characters end up stumbling back together in France and this is where their second chance love ...more
DNF @ 33%
Mia Sheridan is SO hit-or-miss for me, and this was a solid miss, unfortunately. I'm rating it 2 stars instead of 1 only in the off chance that the rest of the book somehow got better, but I just couldn't force myself to read any more of it. The book starts off with a prologue where the main characters meet as children, and then the first chapter starts 10 years later. Where they almost immediately meet again for the first time in a decade. There wasn't nearly enough back story to make ...more
I read Archers Voice and titled it “the most beautiful first kiss ever”...
I read Leo and several others are also still on my reading list – so how could I not jump at the chance to review the latest book from Mia Sheridan ~ when already the first glimpse of the Blurb promised so much.
“More Than Words” is just like its title ~ this book is more than its words. And just like other books before from this author it left me speechless. So I am honestly sitting here staring at my blank review sheet a ...more
Mia Sheridan will always be my favorite romantic author. I consider her complete as a person but also as an author, and because of this, her writing style was drafted in this way, to reflect her personality and qualities. “More than words” is a beautiful love story that throughout the second part it reminder me soooo much of Archer’s Voice, because it has similar elements and the same message that needed to be passed further on. I was very impressed by Mia’s approach and this story really manage ...more
