SO MUCH MORE which is a part of the ALABAMA SUMMER series was originally released as part of the Halloween anthology EYE CANDY. Now it's being released as a separate novella, and those of you who love this series really need to pick this one up!

It’s Halloween and some of the couples have some life-altering changes coming their way. There are some tender moments, heartbreaking moments, and some hotter than hell panty melting moments!! I d

The kid’s POV was the best. Hope Nolan and Princess Ryan gets their own book one day.

So Much More was a novella within J Daniels Alabama Summer series. I loved catching up with our favorite heroes and heroines: Ben/MIA, Reed/Beth, Luke/Tessa and CJ/Riley.

It was a quick read with a chapter devoted to each couple. Additionally, Nolan, Ben and Mia’s six year old son, had a chapter. It was great to catch up with everyone and there was no drama, just wonderful little snippets of updates.

Gah, I love this crew so much! So Much More was exactly what I was hoping: a great way to catch up with all my beloved characters from the Alabama Summer series. It was sugary sweet, funny, super sexy and emotional. We got to catch up with all the characters but the best thing was Nolan's POV and his absolutely adorable way to love his princess Ryan (I can't wait to read their story!!!). This crew has a special place in my heart and this novella was the perfect way to ge

I read this in the Eye Candy anthology and really enjoyed it. These short stories were cute and they were like an extra epilogue into all the characters from the Alabama series.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read most of the books in the Alabama Summer series, so it was nice to be reminded of how much I love those Bama Boys. So Much More is a novella that takes place on Halloween, and each chapter is about a different couple, written from the man’s point of view.

There seems to be a common theme: each man realizing he hasn’t shown his woman the depth of his love. There are many tender moments, but a heck of a lot of laughs as well. It’s difficult to pick which story is my
Alabama Summer Series lovers, you are in for a delightful TREAT with this one because oh my swoony feels and cuteness overload!!! This novella was just that— SO. MUCH. MORE. It's complete and utter PERFECTION. My heart's bursting at the seams with so much love for these characters; I didn't know how much I truly missed each and every single one of them until I was deeply engrossed in their lives again. It feels so good to be back! God, these Bama Boys are LIFE and this novella will certainly ...more
No. Just no.

I read this series out of order. So I read this chaptar about Beth and Reed not having previously read their full-length book. And it's safe to say I won't. Because their chapter was weird and it freaked me out. Yuck and ouch!

Also Tessa pissed me off by being more of a jerk than she usually is.

The rest was meh.

So overall this was awful.

2nd time reading. Originally read from Eye Candy anthology 🎃


Reading So Much More by J. Daniels was like coming home. I laughed. I cried. And of course, I swooned. Because there's no one like the Bama Boys. They own me, body and soul #sigh.

Reading each little story and that special one at the end had me squealing and jumping up and down, like a little kid #feels.

J. Daniels sure knows the way to my heart. These characters are everything. I will never get

Oh I love these characters, I've missed them so very much and love that we got to see the Bama Boys again. I especially loved the fact that we got a chapter from each of them and a bonus chapter IMO that had me smiling and giggling so hard. It was the cutest thing ever.

There is a reason why J. Daniels is my favorite author! I have no doubt this novella was going to be amazing, because how couldn't it? The Alabama Summer Series Gang have a special place in my heart and in the Eye Candy Anthology, they once again stole my heart!

With SO MUCH MORE you get cuteness from Ben and Mia, kinky hotness from Reed and Beth, funny as hell scenes with Luke and Tessa and a surprise from CJ and Riley.

But the best?! The VERY best?! You get the most adorable chapter with Sir Nol

This is a short novella that catches you up on everyone and what’s going on with their lives and how they are moving on. And Nolan gets his own little beginning too and if you defy you not to smile when reading his chapter. It’s just too cute.

Can’t wait for more in this series especially a story for Nolan and Ryan in the future.

There was a lot of angst and love and happiness and sexy times wrapped up in this short little novella. Kinda perfect. But let’s be real, the guy who stole the show was Nolan, and it was just perfect.

“The good you give me, babe? The good I feel every fuckin’ day knowing I’m attached to you is more good than I ever fuckin’ deserve to feel. I know it is.”

So Much More by J. Daniels is the perfect novella to the Alabama Summer series. I've missed these characters so, oh so fucking much. I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this series. It has to be my all-time favourite.

Every Bama boys fan out there needs to read this, our boys are back and better than ever!!

Reading this was the sweetest experience ever, each chapter was sweeter than the previous one. It was so good to catch up with all our Bama Boys. Oh how I had missed them, their sexiness and their sweetness. They are all so perfect and little Nolan, oh Nolan already owns my heart and I cannot wait for him to get his own book, because I know that he has the potential to be the best of them

Ben he speaks his mind to his woman, “are you gonna put on that hot-as-eff angel getup you bought and deny me, baby? That’s just cruel.” I really liked this novella, loved seeing all the boys and having the story in each of their perspectives.

I love these couples all of them. My favorite are Tessa and luke Ben and Mia and Reed and Beth. I really hope Tessa and Luke get what they want, I think they both deserve it. Luke is such a good man I want the best for both of them. J Daniels you need to make that happen lol.

What great read with all the Bama men showing how sweet and sexy they are and Nolan steals the show. Love it. Makes you want to re-read the Bama series again.

This was a series of short stories highlighting a different couple from this author’s previous books. They were each so darn cute and I absolutely loved how over the top each hero was.

Ahhhhhh this was so cute! I can't wait for Nolans story!!!

I just realized something. When Nolan was on the phone with Ryan, Ryan's dad said "Dylan" talking to Ryan's mom. Dylan is also a character in a totally different series of J.Daniels! Crossover?!? I'm ready for Nolan's story now! Super excited 😊
