More Than Words: A Love Story, by Mia Sheridan



<b>"“Live fiercely and without regret.”</b>

This is my first book by Mia Sheridan, and I know there's some mixed reviews on this one in comparison to the other stand alones she has published, but I really enjoyed it.  

Callen and Jessie met as kids, both searching for an escape from their home lives they ended up finding each other.  Call it fate, call it a coincidence, they were what the other needed at the time.  A decade passes and they haven't seen each other since they were 13, until they meet again in France.  Callen has become a composer, taking his love for music and turning it into a career, and Jessie a translator as she has always dreamed to do when she was a little girl.  

I love France, so maybe that had something to do with me enjoying this story so much, but at the same time I know that the reason I loved it so much was because of how pure Jessie and Callen loved each other, even if neither of them were willing to admit it.  They had loved each other since they were kids, and once they were back together it was clear that there was no one else for them.

This would have been a 5 star read for me, I read it over the course of one day's time, but some of the events at the end took me out of it briefly.  Plus, <b>[spoilers]</b> ... I have never been a fan of accidental pregnancy tropes, or miscommunication.  

That being said, at one point I did start crying solely because of how much they felt for each other.  So I can't really fault it too much for including somethings that I don't typically enjoy in the later half of the book.
