REVIEW – MORE THAN WORDS by Mia Sheridan

SYNOPSIS

No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Timesbestselling author Mia Sheridan.
The moment she met Callen Hayes, eleven-year-old Jessica Creswell knew he was a broken prince. Her prince. They became each other’s refuge, a safe and magical place far from their troubled lives. Until the day Callen kissed herJessica’s first real, dreamy kissand then disappeared from her life without a word.
Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen’s music is now locked deep inside, trapped behind his own inner demons. It’s only when he withdraws to France to drink his way through the darkness that Callen stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. His Jessie. And she still tastes of fresh, sweet innocence . . . even as she sets his blood on fire.
But they don’t belong in each other’s worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes. Too many secrets. Too many lies. All they have is that instinctive longing, that needand something that looks dangerously like love.
“5 Star Gold! Inspiring, uplifting, and raw in [its] intensity.”

My heart overflowed with the love I felt for him, the ease with which we talked about everything and nothing, and the magical feel of this weekend, in this village where fate had somehow delivered us. And though I’d given myself to him knowing it wouldn’t last, I allowed myself to pretend it might, just for now. Just for tonight.

I love Mia Sheridan’s stories. They’re always heartfelt and her characters face somewhat impossible challenges during their lives but the prize is fairytale-like romance overflowing with unconditional love. The main characters meet at the tender age of eleven. Neither were fortunate enough to be blessed with the best parents and to escape their unhealthy environments, they hung out in an abandoned train car where they’d go on many fantastic journeys with the help of their books and wild imaginations, but one day without warning, the boy disappears and is never to be seen again.

Twelve years later, fate brings the two together at a hotel in a quaint little town in France. Callen has become a world-famous music composer and Jessie has just landed her dream job translating the lost journals of one of Joan of Arc’s closest confidantes. Callen is famous for his drunken escapades with countless women and when he tries to make the moves on Jessie, she is far from eager to jump into a romantic entanglement with him. She has protected her heart for so many years that she is afraid of making the same mistakes that destroyed her mother.

Callen is haunted by the mental abuse he was subjected to by his father as a child. He’s never felt anything for any woman because his heart has always belonged to Jessie and he truly believes all the horrible things his father called him. So Callen is also reluctant to get involved with Jessie because he knows she deserves far better than him.

Both Callen and Jessie seem to be drowning in self-loathing and insecurities. And just when the two find the courage to take a chance on each other a secret that gets revealed has the power to tear them apart once more.
