There is so much I can say about this story and my love for all things Noah... his dedication, determination, his capacity for love, his passion and compassion, his understanding, his patience, his respect, his love of family, his sexiness, his everything… but to avoid spoiling this beauty, I’m going to keep this brief. More Than Love You was a sweetly romantic and erotic tale that made me ache, swoon, and check my surroundings more than once because HOLY COW these two shared SPARKS!! Told m ...more

Christian Fox's voice is just pure velvet chocolate.....SMOOTH!!!

Now the story.....well it had a tad too much going on along with the h being a wet rag and H a lovesick puppy including a frustrating amount of inner dialogue. I'm really not sure how it still worked for me, but it did.......maybe it was Christian Fox's voice. Yep,it was! description"/
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Noah has just retired from pro football due to some residual effects from the last concussion he received. He's not ready to leave football but he's not sure he can accept the commentary job with the issues he is having.

Harlow found out her fiance was cheating on her with his assistant and has a baby on the way. She breaks off her wedding in the most epic way and needs to hide out for a bit.

Noah comes home to his new house he just bought to find a stunning woman sunbathing poolside and finds ou

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Noah Weston was unlike any other male lead I've read, especially considering he's a retired quarterback (not that I subscribe to any particular stereotype about athletes). He was so open and in touch with his feelings and so willing to risk so much for the chance of something great. The way he fell for poor Harlow and the way he fought for her and her heart and peace and future was just beautiful. And Harlow - she was strong in the way th

** ARC provided by the author for an honest review **

Who knew escaping to paradise would mean finding love? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black’s More Than Love You is the third book in the More Than Words series and is quite honestly my favorite so far. I do recommend reading the first two books beforehand to understand the Reed family dynamic and get to know the characters that make appearances.

More Than Love You is a fun, scorching-hot romance with a layered, powerful love story. Noah Weston is a recently retired football player with a big personality who meets his match with the feisty, complicated Harlow Reed. Their chemistry is instant, and their relationship begins as a fiery physical one. Noah’s been a playboy for years, so he’s baffled when he finds himself wanting more with her than he’s ever wanted with a woman — a relationship. But Harlow just excited a relationship in an ext ...more

This series is Ms. Black at her best, and just keeps getting better and better! This one tore my heart out in so many ways. So many feels and wonderful, heartfelt tears. Absolutely loved it.

"I don't know how to not touch Harlow."

I've just recently discovered the amazing talent of Shayla Black, so I'm trying to catch up. I read More Than Love You as a standalone, but I did purchase the first two books in the More Than Words series to read later. I'm even more anxious to do so after meeting Harlow's brothers, Griffin & Maxon.

Most of the story is told from Noah's POV, and it wasn't until I had gnawed my nails to nubs that I got a peek into Harlow's head. Noah decides to return to

The title for Noah Weston and Harlow Reed’s story is quite an interesting one given the nature of how their summer fling starts, their respective relationship history, and the adamant contention on Harlow’s part that she is incapable of romantic attachments and commitments when it comes to the opposite sex.

But it’s not just their expiration date or the fact that Harlow never seems to want to share anything about herself or her past…what’s most striking to me about the title is its paradoxical i

"I had no idea when I purchased my dream home that it would come with the woman straight out of my fantasies."

FINAL DECISION: My favorite of the series. This one is hot, hot, hot. And perhaps because the character with the secrets and pain (Harlow) isn't the narrator this time, I can understand why the character who is treated badly sometimes (Noah) stays in the relationship. Noah's dedication and caring for Harlow is a highlight.

LOVE THIS ONE MORE THAN WORDS! More Than Love You is my favorite book in the More Than Words series thus far! Love Noah Weston and Harlow Reed to death. After reading the first two books in the series, I felt confident that I must have the audiobook and purchased both together. Swoon! I do love Christian Fox. Shayla mentioned that she falls to sleep listening to him sometimes. I can’t think of a better way to lull one to sleep his voice is so soothing.

I loveee Shayla Black's More Than Words series so much as Maxon and Griff were fabulous in the previous two books. More Than Love you has to be the hottest and my most favorite one yet though. I LOVED Harlow and Noah soooo much. Their chemistry was COMBUSTIBLE and the banter just as hot. I couldn't get enough!

The More Than Words series lives up to its name once again with another explosively passionate and emotionally gripping romance. Noah and Harlow are two strong, vibrant characters that readers easily fall for and definitely want to know their story. The romance is full of sizzling chemistry and heated passion that flows from every page as Harlow tries to keep the relationship at a no entanglements and nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasm state.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
This is the third book in the More than Words series and I think you need read the others first so you will know what is going on with Harlow's brothers to understand more about their horrible parents. You see a little of Harlow in the brother's stories and a little about her life but this really sheds light on why she is the way she is.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the third book in the series, and I would recommend that you read the previous books first, as they set the scene which starts the book. The previous two books concentrate on Harlow's brothers, but their experiences are keys to understanding why she is as she is.

Although we have met Harlow briefly before, we really have no idea just how badly she has also been affected by her parents' reprehensible behaviour tow

I get insta-love because you need to move the story along, but for f sake, can you at least pretend they've known each other more than one week before you say they're in love and pregnant? I mean, even the pregnancy was stupid. Because they had only known each other a short time, you wouldn't have even known you were pregnant. Being together even a month would have been better than this 1-2 week nonsense.

I was mad at Harlow for leaving Noah, while she was pregnant, and not even answering his cal

My review of this book is the minority as I see others truly enjoyed it.

I loved the beginning of the book. I thought the chemistry between Noah and Harlow was off the charts. They were each a little broken but were looking for a fun summer.

Their fun quickly ended as fast as it began. This brought out all the drama. The book was overloaded with secret babies, sex scandals, horrible parents, prostitution, etc. . Each time a storyline seemed to end a new scandals was woven into this book. I

More Than Love You by Shayla Black is book three in her More Than Words series. It can be read as a standalone. Characters from previous books do make appearances though. The series itself centers on the Reed siblings: Maxon, Griffin, and Harlow. This book stars the youngest, Harlow.

More Than Love You by Shayla Black is book 3 in the "More Than Words" series. This is the story of Noah Weston and Harlow Reed. This is one of the hottest, most complex and emotional books in this series. Harlow and Noah had this combustible chemistry that was undeniable and their banter was witty and sexy.

There was a lot of depth to this title...and some really hot sex. And, if you have read anything else by Shalya Black, this is exactly what you expect. A story that gives a lot emotionally, and also brings the heat with the romance and the sex. This is really important when the romance leans toward the erotic side, the romance has to be built and the relationship has to be there in order for the sex to seem meaningful and not gratuitous. We

Okay, so here’s the gist: Noah Weston is retiring from football. He has a reputation that precedes him and not in a flattering way. He’s also suffered physically from his career so there are some hurdles this man has to get thru in this journey that really add depth to not only the story, but the character. Harlow Reed is looking for an escape. An escape of glorious, uninhibited, no strings sex after her engagement ended very publicly. She too has emotional scars that her to her depth of charact ...more

I really enjoyed this book. If you've read more reviews and articles on the blog, you will know that I am a fan of sportsromances. Noah may be retired, but he was playing sports for quite awhile. He's shocked when he sees Harlow for the first time and is pretty impressed. Before he knows it, he can't see himself without her. Is that what love is? He's not quite sure. Harlow is running away from something, but he's not sure what. Harlow is a feisty woman and is willing to sleep with him, but make ...more

This is book three in the More Than Words Series, and this time features Griff and Maxim’s little sister Harlow. As her brothers are Real Estate Agents and need someone to house sit. So after her aborted marriage to Simon this is an ideal situation. So there she is sunbathing in her tiny red bikini when in walks a large handsome sexy man who happens to be newly retired super bowl championship NFL player Noah Western.

I really liked how Harlow and Noah met, loved how bold Harlow was. Noah sure wasn’t sure what hit him, but he was down with it. It was only later that Harlow started to bother me, even as I understood why she was so skittish. Her parents had royally screwed her up. I was glad that Noah realized what was going on and did what he could to let Harlow know he wanted her. Even his 1 year deal was a way to get more time to be able to get past Harlow’s walls.

Oh my, Noah and Harlow certainly won my heart with their story! I wasn't quite sure what to expect with Noah, given his character's description in the synopsis, but after reading, he's nothing like I was anticipating, and that was great. I love that he's not afraid to acknowledge and talk about feelings, and being so open to taking that risk on a chance at a forever love. And Harlow is strength and resilience, especially given the things she's dealt with in her past. Reading about their determin ...more
