“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.” – Marianne Williamson
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.
Rating: 5 stars out of 5
I can’t say it enough. I more than love this series. I more than love Logan and Amanda. I never want their story to end.
We all know what happens in More Than Her, so I’m not going to re-hash it. And if you haven’t read it–then what is wrong with you? And then don’t read this review! More Than Him picks up right after–the aftermath of hurt and broken hearts.
“You just fucking left me.”
Logan leaves thinking what he did was right. Thinking that leaving Amanda is what’s best for her–even though he loves her. He can’t get over the guilt of what almost happened to her “because of him.” My heart broke for Amanda. Ms. McLean did a fantastic job on writing about her heartbreak and her trying to get over Logan.
“She was my person.”
And Logan, this boy is the ultimate book boyfriend. He spent his year away helping others. He didn’t spend it out and about drinking and partying. Logan left to spend his time with other needing help– Doctors Without Borders. And then he returns home a year later, hoping to win her back.
“We got a lot of shit to work thorough.”
“Yeah,” I agreed.
“But once we do, we’re going to be amazing.”
I held my breath during their first encounter after a year apart! Oh it was so good! Eventually, Logan and Amanda slowly take their time to get to know each other again. It wasn’t easy, there still is a lot of distrust between the two. While Logan was away on his mission, he kept a journal. This journal was amazing, heartbreaking and gave us a sense of what Logan was really thinking!
More Than Him blew me away. I’m pretty sure I re-read this about 3 times already and will continue to re-read it, because it’s now a favorite of mine. I highly suggest that starting with the beginning of the series cause all the characters have a fantastic story. I’m so excited to get more with the next book–Cam and Lucy!
