More Than Love You by Shayla Black ~ Blog Tour w/ Review & Excerpt


03 MoreThanLoveYou 600X900

Title: More Than Love You
Author: Shayla Black
Release Date: February 13, 2018
Genre: Erotic Romance


I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

I was super excited to read this book which is part of the series…since I really liked the first two books I thought this was a “sure thing”. Now I know tons of people loved this book and gave it rave reviews. I just didn’t love it as much as the other two books.

Noah, a retired NFL Football player, gets to his new mansion in Hawaii to find a woman he doesn’t know…a hot his pool in a barely there bikini. Her name is Harlow and has been housesitting. It sounds good right? That’s where it went downhill for me.

Harlow is not looking for a relationship of any sorts except a sexual one due to a bad break up. Noah goes after her with all he has. I felt no connection between them and at times it felt a little forced/insta love. The chemistry didn’t feel as smooth as the previous books. I will say a few of the sex scenes were pretty steamy…there definitely wasn’t anything lacking there. While I was intrigued by some drama surrounding this new “friendship” and curiosity got the best of me, it was not my favorite for this series. Good story line but the characters’ chemistry fell short for me. I will read more from this series and just hope I love that one as much as the first two.


MTLY Teaser 6 v1


“Hi, Sleeping Beauty.” She grins my way.

“Sorry about that. I can’t remember the last time I just fell off.”

“You obviously needed it. Feel better?”

“Tons. Thanks. How about you?”

“Great. I love drinking alone.” Her smirk says she’s poking harmlessly at me again. “But you gave me time to finish the dishes, do some laundry, read War and Peace…”

“Stop,” I groan. “Three hours is a long nap. I admit it. You going to ease up now?”

“When teasing you is so fun?” She raises a brow. “What do you think are the odds?”

Shitty. “How can I make it up to you? If you want to hop out of the pool and come to my bedroom, I’ll do my best to put a big smile on your face.”

“I’m intrigued,” she admits. “But in between chapters of the sad Russian saga, I Googled you. You’re, um…a big deal.”

I feel heat rush to my face. I’m used to people talking about me, but I’ve never been completely comfortable with it. “I’m told I was. But like I said, I’m retired now.”

“Hall of Famer, for sure.”

“So my agent assures me.” I shrug. “I’m trying not to linger in the past. I still have a lot of life to live.”

She splashes around a little more. “I don’t know. You’re practically ancient compared to me.”

Is this woman going to rib me about everything? Probably. And I still think it’s oddly adorable. It’s way more entertaining than the bowing, scraping, and yes-sirring I’ve been hearing for years. “How much older?”

“Almost nine years. When you were graduating from high school, I was starting junior high. These days, do you need vitamins before sex or a little blue pill?”

Now she’s laughing, and I find myself smiling in return. “Fuck you.”

“That is the idea…”

“Come here, baby.”

Her eyes sparkle under the moonlight, and it’s all I can do not to jump in after her, clothes and all. I want my hands on her now.

“Why don’t you drop trou and come in after me?”

“You’re all wet.”

She purses her lips together, and I know she’ll make one hell of a sexy bad girl. “Don’t you want me that way?”

The way I feel now? Every day, all day. “Just your pussy. That should be juicy and swollen and ready for my cock. The rest of you shouldn’t be wet unless I’m making you sweat in pleasure.”

“You sweet talker, you…”
