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.


Live fiercely and without regret.

I have a feeling the above quote will be a popular one among readers, and I’ve seen quite a few early reviews include it in their thoughts, but it’s hard to find another phrase that sums up the overall feel of More Than Words quite as well. I’ve heard all the buzz surrounding one of the author’s previous novels, Archer’s Voice, and knew I needed to jump on the opportunity to read this one to see what was up. After finishing MTW, I need to rush out and buy AV immediately because I’m hooked! While this one is completely fine to read as a standalone, I see why all the readers who have been following Mia’s books for years might feel a deeper connection, as her writing is full-bodied and covers a wide range of thematic elements and emotion.

More Than Words is a prime example of how my tastes in genre reading have evolved as I grow older. Besides the fact that I’ve grown into a semi-regular reader of romance, I find that I actually slow down my reading during a book I’ve sunk into, as opposed to the “flip the pages as fast as you can because that’s the only sign you’re enjoying a book” Chelsea that I used to be. The characters here are driven, developed, and larger than life, the plot is layered, intriguing, and gripping, and I found my emotions were on a wild rollercoaster of feels that I couldn’t control. I can’t say anything about the plot, as you should just read it for yourself, but I am so glad to have read this one and freely recommend it to all type of romance readers, and even those who occasionally veer off the beaten path of their comfortable books to search out a solid love story.
