He gripped my ass tighter. I let out a sound I had no idea I was capable of. I was so fucking turned on. His movements on me were making me so wet I could feel it soaking my panties. His mouth moved from my neck to my ear. "You gotta quit making those sounds, baby." He kissed the spot behind it. "I'm starting to lose it."
Then he took my mouth in his, moving into me harder, pinning me to the wall. My leg on the floor moved to wrap around him. I needed him closer to me; I needed more of him.
He started to build a rhythm again. I felt that slow burn building low in my stomach. I didn't know how the fuck he was doing it. Or what the fuck he was even doing. But I didn't want it to stop. Ever. "Oh my God, Logan." I was panting; my head threw back against the wall. He was on my neck. Sucking. Hard. He was going to leave a mark. I wanted him to.
"Matthews! What the fuck are you doing?" A deep voice yelled.
I screamed, dropped my legs, ducked, and hid behind him.
Oh. My. God.
Reality set in.
What the fuck were we doing?
"Fuck." he spat. His hand went down his pants to adjust himself before turning around.
"What the fuck do you think this is, Matthews?"
Oh. My. God.
Kill me now.
"Go home!" I was too embarrassed to look past Logan to see his coach's reaction.
"Yes Sir." Logan sounded like he was about to laugh.
What the hell?
"I'll cover for you." His coach sounded different now, like he was trying to contain his own laughter. "Fuck, I wish I was in college again," he said, before I heard his footsteps walking away.
I don't know what emotion was on my face when Logan turned to me, but he laughed.
"This shit's not funny!" I whispered loudly. " I almost let you have me" I motioned with my finger at our surroundings. "Right here!"
He didn't respond. Just looked me up and down and licked his lips. His eyes settled on my face, as he brought his hand to cup my cheek.
And then his face was so close to mine; I could feel his breath on my lips. He rubbed his nose against mine. "Wait here," he said, his voice low, laced with desire. "We're not even close to being done. I'm going to take you home and I'm going to fucking finish what I started. And when I'm done with you, you won't even remember what happened just now. All you'll remember is how I make you feel when you're screaming my name."
*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*
I had a soft spot for Logan Matthews after meeting him in More Than This, he was an ass at times, but he was sweet and his heart was in the right place. At the end of More Than This Jay McLean wrote a sweet epilogue, but left a twist on the very last page about Logan that left my open mouth. Thus, I was really looking forward to reading Logan’s story in More Than Her.
I really enjoyed the storyline, and it’s one that I can’t say too much about as it will give away too many spoilers. I will say it’s full of angst, steamy moments, funny moments and emotional moments. The first 25% of the book jumps between the past and present, and then after that it stays in the present, this works really well as I liked the flashbacks.
The past allows you to see how the relationship started with “Her” how he fell for “Her” and how he messes it up because he doesn’t know what to say, and how to deal with his feelings. The present lets you see what happens when they see each other again eighteen months later, the chemistry, the emotions, and the attraction they have for each other is still there. They are both still hurting, and Logan wants to make right the mistake that he has never gotten over.
“Any asshole that has you, and is stupid enough to lose you, is a fucking idiot….. Trust me I would know”
“I wish I could forget the past. Forget what he did. Forget that he hurt me. Because I want so badly - more than anything else to be able to forgive him. And maybe, just maybe, we could be everything I hoped for.”
Told from Logan and ‘Her’ POV, you get to see how they feel about each other, their insecurities and how they fight to make the relationship work. Jay writes it in a way that you can’t help but connect to them and fall in love with them. Their emotions were my emotions, when they were happy, sad or pissed off so was I. It was heartbreaking to read at times. These two are perfect for each other, and you can’t help but root for them.
“The thing about Logan was that he had that power over me. His presence could make me forget all the emotions I felt before he entered a room. Because the second he’s here, it’s all him”.
“You and me. We’re going to make new memories. Ones that you aren’t afraid of. And it’s going to be amazing.”
You really get to see a different side to Logan, and I loved being inside his head. You see the real Logan; where he comes from; learn about his past, the reason why he finds it hard to love, and his heartbreak. I just wanted to give him hugs. His love for “Her” is undeniable; everything her does is for her. He’s devoted to the woman he loves.
“I can't give you much or anything at all. But when I say those words to you, it won't just be words—it will be me giving you something that means something. And you deserve to know that, to feel that. So please, let me be the first to say it—because I need to be able to at least give you that...and when I do—those three words will be yours, forever. And so will I.”
Again I loved the secondary characters; Logan’s dad, Kayla, Jake, Cam, Lucy, Heidi and Dylan, loved them all. Like before, I love their friendship, banter and how they all are truly there for each other.
“She makes you happy, son?" he asked quietly. "No," I said, shaking my head. "She makes me whole.”
Overall, I loved this story and like the first book Jay’s writing style pulled me in from the start. I was hooked and didn’t want to put it down. I love watching characters grow and mature. I will warn you it does end on a cliffhanger, and I knew this when I started the book. Therefore, I had mentally prepared myself hoping that it would soften the blow when it happened, and it did but only slightly as I was still anxious. I liked it, but I did shout at my Kindle. I can’t wait to read the next book More Than Him (Due for release in February). I know that they have a tough time ahead, and a few hurdles to overcome, but I can’t wait to be on that journey with them and hope they get the Happy Ever After that they both deserve.
If you have read More Than This then you need to 1-click this one now, and if you haven’t then you need to 1 click them both now. You won’t be disappointed.
“I’m trying really hard not to be the person that you think I am. I’m not that person. At least not with you.”
“I hate him. I hate him. I hate him. I hate him so fucking much, I want to push him up against the wall and punch him in the face. And then I want to lick it. Then rip his fucking shirt off and finger his abs while he does that annoying manly chuckle that I love. I hate him. Stupid Fucking Logan Fucking Matthews.”
“And that’s how we stayed. In each other’s arms, holding on to this night. I didn’t want to let go. Ever. Maybe it was too soon. Maybe it was too intimate. Maybe it was too perfect.”
“She became more than just my girl she became my everything“

• Though Only For You is a part of the For You Series, the book can be read as a stand-alone.
I am speechless. I didn't think this book would affect me the way it did. Powerful. Emotional. Beautiful. Genna Rulon's Pieces For You is a story that starts with your heart in small pieces, and it is slowly put it back together again. The author made two people that were shattered, whole again. I got all the FEELS with this one!
"I love you in a way that will never ebb or fail—it will thrive and deepen every day. I don’t want to experience life without you ever again; I don’t want to live without those pieces of me.”
While this book can be read as a standalone, I recommend the first book, Only For You as you truly get to understand the back story of book 2 a little more. We are introduced to Samantha (Sam) Whitney as she survived the unthinkable. After weeks in a save haven, she returns to real life to adjust again. Griffin Evensen has always had a thing for Sam. However, he has always been in the background, waiting patiently. Once he hears of the incident, Griffin realizes life is too short to not tell someone how you feel. Eventually, him and Sam end up in a routine of spending time together and ultimately fall in love. With Sam's past, love isn't easy. She has a so much to deal with, but Griffin is there every step of the way. I swooned over Griffin the entire book. He gave me goosbumps. He made me cry and laugh. He made me FEEL. His actions to protect Sam jeopardizes his relationship with Sam. You NEED to read and find out what happens! I cannot say too much without giving it away. This story of loss, hope, and true love is honestly one of the most beautiful love stories I've ever read. Love is powerful.
I am still reeling over this book. I had to write my review right away as I wanted to capture all the emotions I felt as the book ended. I loved the first book in the series with Hunter and Everleigh. But this book blew me away! Watching someone so fragile fall in love was beyond words. Sam found solace in Griffin. She found that if someone could love her with such conviction then she should love and be loved.
The writing style of the author is flawless and captivating. She has a way to grab you into the story from beginning to end. You become so engrossed in the story and connect to the characters that putting the book down is not an option. The characters are so genuine and you feel every emotions expressed in this book. Every. Emotion. Whether they laugh or cry, you are in that moment with them.The author doesn't tell this story, she allows you to LIVE it.
This book is so much more than romance. It is about love conquering all. About a woman surviving and overcoming the unimaginable. I applaud the author for taking on such a difficult topic. No matter what, Sam didn't play the victim. She overcame. She realized her worth. That she not only deserves to love, but also to live. And she did so, passionately. This amazing story cannot be recommended enough. With love and hope all things are possible.
