About this ebook

I hooked up with my temporary roommate. Now I’ll do anything to claim her for good.

I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

Hands down this is my favorite of the series so far! This is the third book in the series, however, the books can be read as standalones. They do have overlapping characters, Harlow’s brothers and their significant others, from book one (Maxon Reed) and two (Griffin Reed). I really enjoyed them. They are definitely worth the read! Holy hotness with Harlow and Noah and their smoking hot chemistry! I adore Noah. He is so patient with Harlow. She has a lot of issues and he is there for her every step of the way. He has a way to smooth the way, even when she gets skittish, he goes with the flow and doesn’t necessarily give in but allows Harlow some room to work things out herself. Harlow is a riot. She is outspoken, sexy, funny, brilliant and a real challenge for Noah. She is hiding something from Noah and her brothers. She has kept this secret for years and it is hurting her emotionally and has her doubting her ability to have a relationship. This is where I tell you I don’t want to get into anything about the book as it’s better for the reader to go in cold and ride the roller coaster of emotion that is Harlow and Noah’s love affair. My heart hurt for Harlow and her brothers as more of their past is revealed. Noah is an island boy and his family is there to support him and Harlow. Noah has his own hurdles to tackle (no pun intended) before he makes a decision about what he plans to do with his opportunities that were offered now that he is retired. I loved that the story was told in Noah’s POV and even though this is a longish book, it is fast paced, and I didn’t feel any drag or lag. The story flowed well and kept me hooked. The story and the characters are so well written and that made me invested in them and the story. I highly recommend this sexy, sweet, and emotional love story that is Harlow and Noah.

Great addition to the series….steamy with all the feels Noah Weston, a retired NFL quarterback, stumbles upon Harlow poolside on the property he just bought. Though Harlow is mildly aware of his celebrity status, she’s not much impressed with football or Noah. Until he takes his shirt off. All those rippling muscles get her attention, and Noah’s pleased she’s interested. There’s instant lust and lots of electricity between these two. Harlow Reed spots all the subtle signs Noah’s exhibiting with his speech, especially when he’s exhausted or nervous. There are certain things Noah needs to keep secret until he can move further in the next phase of his career as a sports commentator. Working on her Masters in Speech, she knows all too well the difficulties patients with traumatic head injuries struggle with. The help Harlow offers would benefit both her and Noah. As they spend time together he can’t get enough of the feisty, quick-witted woman. Slowly Noah breaks down the walls Harlow’s built around her heart from a past hurt. I love how Noah has so much patience making his so irresistible. Ms. Black gives us a well-written, erotic romance with plenty of steamy scenes, drama, and love. I like seeing Harlow’s brothers who were featured in the previous books of More Than Words series. I loved Harlow and Noah’s story and it was a delightful pleasure. I received and voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Who knew escaping to paradise would mean finding love? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black’s More Than Love You is the third book in the More Than Words series and is quite honestly my favorite so far. I do recommend reading the first two books beforehand to understand the Reed family dynamic and get to know the characters that make appearances. Scandal has both Noah Weston and Harlow Reed hiding out at a private ocean-front property. Neither is looking for a relationship, but they decide to use their passion and attraction to present themselves as a supportive and loving couple until the scandals pass over. But what happens when the ruse is over, and they realize it more? This book has the roles reversed. The male character is usually the one shying away from love, but not Noah. No once he realizes what he feels, he then makes it his mission to convince Harlow that she feels the same. But he has a hard road ahead of him with that. Harlow’s outlook on love has been destroyed. She has built the walls surrounding her heart high. But if anyone can break them down or find a way over them its Noah. I love the inclusion of Harlow’s brothers Maxon and Griff and their wives into the story. It was like visiting family and catching up a bit. Shayla has written another fully captivating book within this series. As always, I loved it and I cannot wait to see what she gives me next. Five Scandalous stars!!!
