“First Class Contemporary Romance”
More Than This
Liz Savoy has no plans to date anyone—least of all the dark handsome mystery man who sometimes inhabits the corner table at the coffee shop where she’s working to get through school. But plans change, sometimes in ways no one expected.
Jake McCoy is the next mega-millionaire author, or at least he would be if he could get the stories in his head down on the ether. With no good place to write, he resorts to dark corners in Wi-Fi hotspots, knowing no one in the world cares about him or his comings and goings one way or the other. However, there is one waitress at The Grind coffee shop with a cute smile and kind eyes who doesn’t seem to think he is as invisible as he likes to think he is. Can reality with her ever hope to match the fantasy world where his imagination has him living?
What Reviewers are saying…
First Class Contemporary Romance
by: Roger Murfin
This is a wonderfully well rounded romance with realistically flawed characters dealing with real problems. Those problems the author doesn’t treat superficially nor does she preach at us about them. The story isn’t obfuscated by the two important issues tackled, rather it is intrinsically part of the story. The humorous quirks meld with the heartbreaking sadness to form the best kind of entertainment–a book that is both moving and enlightening. The way faith is addressed allows us to see the importance of our relationship with God to the struggles of everyday life.
I’ve read a lot of books, but this is the first one I’ve reviewed. I felt like this book was too good not to review. I love that More Than This is about normal people with normal struggles. Neither one of the main characters is a millionaire or a crime fighter. There are no explosions or natural disasters. The characters are genuine instead of over-dramatic. I haven’t struggled with either of the root problems in this story, but I can identify with shame, inadequacy, fear, etc. I also really enjoyed that the characters fall in love in a more traditional way. They don’t have a love at first sight romance. They both do dumb things in their relationship because they’re insecure and scared. When I was reading, I felt like the story started out pretty slowly, and then started pulling me in. I was intrigued, because the beginning is well written, even though it’s slow. It made me wonder what was going to happen. Overall, More Than This is an inspirational, believable, romantic novel.
