Add to Goodreads:

There is a love so fierce it cannot be measured. 
A heart so strong it will never slow. 
There is a promise so sure it can never lie.
He promised me that love forever.
Even when it wasn't enough.

Forever. Everlasting. Eternal.
There is no measure of time. 
No sounds of the ticking of a clock. 
Just the rising and falling of the sun.
And our own sense of forever. 

But our forever isn't always.

Mom says that there’s absolutely no pain worse than labor. For sixteen hours, so she says, she went through absolute hell. She jokes that sometimes she wonders if it was worth it. I call bullshit. I say that nothing, absolutely nothing, can feel worse than being hit in the junk with a baseball bat. Lincoln’s eyes are huge as he grimaces. “I’m so sorry, Cam.”
I’m folded over myself, too preoccupied with the ache below my stomach. Sometimes, there’s a delay with the pain. But not this time. This time it was instant. I try to speak, but nothing comes out. He looks like he wants to cry and I want to assure him that it’s all good—but I can’t. Liam, Lincoln’s twin brother, is laughing. The little punk. I’ll be sure to make him do extra shit next practice. “Cam, are you okay?”
I try to straighten, but it just makes the pain worse. “Yeah, bud. I just gotta let it settle.”
“I swear I didn’t see you behind me.” There’s panic clear in his voice and for a second I want to tell myself to suck it up and quit being a little bitch, but I can’t do that either. The pain’s too overwhelming. Liam’s still laughing his ass off. My eyes narrow at him and Lincoln must notice, because he turns to his brother and pushes him hard enough that he falls to the ground. That makes Liam stop. He gets up and dusts the dirt of his uniform. “We should go, Linc, we’re the last ones here.”
Lincoln looks around. So do I. Liam’s right, everyone’s gone.
“I’m just gonna help Cam pack up,” Lincoln replies, picking up the team equipment bag and chucking in the helmets and bats sitting by my feet. He looks up at me again, and I can see how sorry he really is.
Standing to full height, I do my best to ignore the pain. “It’s okay, Linc. Seriously, it’s passed now.” It hasn’t, but he doesn’t need to know that. He finishes packing anyway and hands me the bag, it’s bigger than he is.
I take it from his hands and look around again. “Your mom or dad late to pick you up?”
“Nah,” Liam says, the laughter and amusement now gone. “Lucy’s here.”
“Our sister,” Lincoln explains.
They both turn to the bleachers and so do I. A lone girl sits at the bottom bench. Something flat, black and rectangular in her hand, kinda like a tablet, I guess. Her foot’s rocking a stroller back and forth. It strikes me as strange, because the girl looks familiar. She’s in my class, I think. She’s a freshman and she has a baby? Stuff like that doesn’t happen in our town and if it did, I’d know. Everyone would know.
“Lucy!” Liam shouts.
She doesn’t look up.
“Lucy!” Lincoln this time.
She still doesn’t look up, but her foot continues to rock the stroller.
“Luce!” Liam yells again.
My eyes narrow before looking down at the boys. “Is your sister…uh…hearing impaired?”
They both let out simultaneous snorts. “No,” Lincoln answers, pulling his cap further down his head and looking up at me. His eyes roll as he says, “She’s just reading.”

My More Than Forever Review ...

Once again Jay McLean has caused me to lose sleep. I thought I would just read a chapter or two then read the rest over the next few days, then all of a sudden it is 3am and I have to be up in four hours.  But it couldn't be helped, as with all her books once you pick it up you can't put them down.

Lucy has always been one of my favorites throughout the series, so I was ecstatic to get Luce and Cam's story.  And what a story it was, filled with so much love, with some loss, angst and heart ache thrown in.  As much as I didn't want the heartache it wouldn't have been that much of a story if it was just unicorns and rainbows in regards to their relationships.  In life, relationships take work and Luce and Cam have to figure out that the hard way.

As we know from the rest in the series is that Lucy is the firecracker, sex fiend book nerd, but what we get to learn is that she wasn't always that way.  Lucy was brought up that books were her salvation and memories of love and happiness.  She comes from a family of 7 children with 6 brothers and when heart break and loss happens, her family is about to fall apart leaving poor 15 year old Lucy to keep it together.  As Luce struggles to hold her family together an angel comes in to help her and give her the freedom to heal.  What she didn't expect from this angel was to fall in head over heels forever love with him.
They gave us all names beginning with L. Because L - it stands for love. And love is something we should be reminded of every day. 

Cam probably has the most biggest beautiful heart and when he sees Lucy at her brother's baseball game he is instantly drawn to her and wants to help and save her.  Not knowing Lucy but only knowing that he wants to help starts to show up at her families house daily to help any way he can.  The more he helps, he gets immersed into their family and into Lucy.  Cam becomes the savior that this family needed to survive and move forward.
If heartbreak had a face, hers would be it.

Cam and Lucy have a perfect loving relationship throughout all of high school but as the older they get and the more life expectations gets put on them, it starts to take a toll on their relationship.  Things have always been easy for them so bends & curves are inevitable but how we deal with them are key.

As the bends keep happening more and more they start to lose a part of their togetherness and sluts start to hit the fan.  Let me tell you I wanted to kick Roxy in the baby maker at the same time I wanted to strangle Luce and Cam for NOT communicating.

As things start to boil over all seems to be lost until even more tragedy happens.  This much heartache can either break or make a relationship and for Luce and Cam this is the pivotal point.

God! Let's start with I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! so much.  I also LOVED this book.  Cam and Luce's love is powerful and fateful.  As we are reading and get encapsulated in their story are hearts are lifted with the potty mouth of Luce to all the other antics of their amazing friends.  With light also comes dark so even though there are moments where we have light with these guys we also get the dark and sadness, but with this sadness also comes fate and things so big being meant to be.

Some authors hit it out of the park on their debut books then either fail or sail with the next books.  With Jay McLean she not only sails but flourishes with her awesomeness to tell a beautiful heartfelt story.

Mid 2015 will feel like forever while waiting for the next book, More Than Enough.

5 More Than Amazing thumbs up!

The More Series 

More Than This, #1


In one night my fairytale ended. Or it may have begun. This is my story of friendship and love, heartbreak and desire, and the strength to show weakness. 


One night I met a girl. A sad and broken girl, but one more beautiful than any other. She laughed through her sadness, while I loved through her heartbreak. 

*This is our story of a maybe ever after.* 

He was right. It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years. 

I couldn’t undo what had been done. I couldn’t change the future. 

I couldn’t even predict it. 

It was one night. 

One night when everything changed. 

It was so much more than just the betrayal. 

It was the Tragedy. 

The Deaths. 

The Murders. 

But it was also that feeling. 
The feeling of falling.



More Than Her, #2

For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction." For every choice you make there are rewards, or there are consequences. It was my choice to walk away the first time. And my choice to chase her the second. But sometimes you don't get a choice, and all you get are the consequences.” "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Unless that someone is Logan Matthews. Because loving him didn't give me the strength to walk away. It didn't give me the courage to fight for him. And when it was over, all it gave me was a broken heart. 


More Than Him, #3

"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.
