I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

I’ve been DYING to read Griff’s book ever since I finished book one in Shayla Black’s More Than Words Series, MORE THAN WANT YOU. But let me back up and let you know that it’s my personal opinion that you read this series in order. Yes, MORE THAN NEED YOU features a different couple, but a heavy dose of back story between these two characters show up in the first book. I think it’s better to understand Britta and Griff’s story if you have that element in the back of your mind. And both books are AMAZING anyway, so it won’t be a hardship at all. I guarantee you that! So back to it…after reading the first book, my heart already ached for Griff and Britta. Therefore, I thought I was prepared for the emotional pull that these two would drag me into, but I wasn’t. I wasn’t at all. My heart was aching pretty much through this whole book, but by the end, I can tell you, it was so incredibly worth it!

“If you choose your head over your heart.” Jesus, she simply can’t. “I know you. You’ll be miserable.”

“Maybe. But that’s better than being broken.”

There is just so much passion and unforgettable emotion coming from this story. You could feel what the characters were feeling. It was so intense and heartbreaking. I absolutely adored Griff’s persistence and hated Britta’s hesitancy, even though I get where she was coming from. But there is a third-party (their son) in this story, which adds another level of heartbreak. This story felt so real and so raw, that I couldn’t help but wonder how the hell they were going to get their happily ever after. The author makes us work for it, that’s for sure, putting our hearts through the ringer time and time again, leaving us in a big pile of feels and angst. Don’t worry, there is a happily ever after. Just be prepared to work for it on every emotional level. Be prepared to fall in love, have your heart broken, and then carefully mended back together by a master. 

I’m extremely excited when the announcement came out that there is going to be a third book in this incredible series and it’s Harlow’s book! Harlow is Griff and Maxon’s sister, and there is a little build up to her story at the end of MORE THAN NEED YOU, that just has me all kinds of excited!
