I hired her to distract my enemy. Now I'm determined to have her for my own.

I’m Maxon Reed—real estate mogul, shark, a*****e. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success—my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.

Sassy Keeley Kent accepts my challenge to learn how to become Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine—but I’m about to find out.

More Than Want You is a sexy and emotional standalone novel from New York Times bestselling author in the More Than Words Series.

    This is the first time I have read this author and it won’t be my last. This book takes place in one of my favorite places on earth, Maui, Hawaii. I absolutely adored the setting. I also loved that music was involved. I love when the authors provide play lists for their books. This book has a very alpha career driven hero, and when you find out about his family, you will discover what drives him. The thing is, under all that bravado is a man who has deep feelings that he was never taught how to express and apply them. My heart hurt for him, but he had to learn the hard way. Keeley is the opposite of Maxon. She is lighthearted and a free spirit. When he asks what she wants out of life, she says, I just want to be happy. He couldn’t comprehend that answer. He wanted money, he wanted a title, he wanted to be the best and here was this beautiful, quirky woman who aspired to just be happy. She of course had the dream to own her own B&B once she graduated from college. She wasn’t afraid of hard work. She worked as a yoga instructor at a senior center, she had been a waitress, went to college, worked as a receptionist and was quite a talented singer. She also had the great ability to ask the tough questions when the conversation got deep. She was able to connect with Maxon and really get him to think about his life. This book had all the feels and it had a twist that I didn’t see coming! I was getting that burning in my chest a few times, as the characters went through their issues and I wanted to cry a couple of times because I was so caught up in their emotions. Their romance is a whirlwind, but the connection they have is soul deep and they both feel it right from the start. Keeley was definitely more in tuned with her feelings and it took Maxon a bit to catch up, but when he did, he jumped all in. I highly recommend this emotional and sexy opposites attract romance!
  • Bad bad Max!

    By Knotty Girl Reviews
    So, I’m still mourning losing Shayla’s Wicked series, but I figured since this is Shayla, I’d give this series a go because it would probably be pretty close. Not. Even. And that’s a good thing. It just goes to prove, once again, how very talented Ms Shayla is. Our hero of the story is Maxon, who is a big time real estate mogul, as is his brother Griff, his biggest competitor. To say that Maxon is a big ole’ butt plug would be putting it mildly, especially with what he has planned for Keely, our sunshine and light heroine of the piece. But Keely manages to effect a change to Max in a positive way, and with quite the twist he never saw coming. (Neither did the readers!) It will be interesting to see how estranged brother Griffin’s book turns out, and I for one am looking forward to it!
  • All the wants & feels

    You know that moment as a reader where you want MORE. No, no...not the hearts and flowers. Those are nice but I'm talking about the FEELS. Something that just delivers on an emotional level that makes you question EVERYTHING. Where the hero with a damaged childhood that scars who he is as a person yet makes him the most driven and ruthless person EVER...than in comes the heroine that all knocks you off your feet with her reasonable and calm self. Here's the twist...does he fight for what will make him more successful (even if that means trampling your brother) or the feelings he's unfamiliar (what are these feelings??) with the woman that speaks to him on every level? Yes....I More Than Want...I want everything and Shayla delivered the I anxiously waiting for Griff... (More Than Want You was provided in exchange for honest review)
  • Great start to this new series!

    By Christine Miller28
    This is the first book in Shayla Black's new series and what a home run! I loved Maxon and Keeley. Maxon is all about world domination until he meets Keeley. Keeley is a carefree spirit that brings out parts of Maxon that he forgot he had. I loved watching them fall in love. My favorite thing about this story was completely watching Maxon lose his #hit over Keeley. A guy who didn't have time for love or really life, and the thought of losing Keeley sent him in a tailspin. There are surprises through the read and I loved the ending. I can't wait to see what else this series has in store! Great read!
