More Than Words
Author: Mia Sheridan
Publisher: Forever Romance
Releases: June 12, 2018
No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Times bestselling author Mia Sheridan in this emotional love story about destiny, second chances, and the healing power of love.
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 her—Jessica’s first real, dreamy kiss—and 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 need—and something that looks dangerously like love.

Mia Sheridan is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. Her passion is weaving true love stories about people destined to be together. Mia lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband. They have four children here on earth and one in heaven.
At one time in her life, like so many other little girls do at that age, Jessica Creswell dreamed of a prince coming to rescue her, falling madly in love with him, and one day sharing a castle with him as his wife. But just like the fictional fairy-tales she'd read in books, she realized that is not how real relationships work, as much as you want a man to be a prince it's just not an expectation that will pan out... finding a prince is purely fictional. As much as you want him to be perfect like the prince in the book, he will always find a way to let you down, and her prince did, he kissed her, and then disappeared, without so much as a goodbye. But not a day goes by without at least one thought of him popping into her head, or one photo of him and his current piece of arm candy showing up on the television or internet. Learning that her one time prince turned into Callen Hayes famous bad boy composer was surprising, but nothing could have prepared her for the time he wandered into the restaurant she was working at, and him not recognizing her. Then their paths cross again, and just like all the times before their chemistry nearly smothers them, and they give into that chemistry and share a passionate night together. But the next morning Jessica's logical side takes over and she once again remembers that putting her heart in the hands of a man, especially this man, is not wise, so she tries to make him see that they are better apart... but Callen isn't so ready to let his new muse slip away.
More Than Words is a touching tale that will speak to your heart, stir your emotions, and leave you looking at love in a whole new way! It didn't take long for me to find myself being sucked into this one, the words pulled me in and just wouldn't let go, it was absorbing. This was a unique story line, so unlike anything I have read in the past, and I came to really appreciate that the farther I slipped into the story, it was so refreshing to read something so different, and walk away from it with so much. This is only my second novel from this author, but after reading this one I have to say she is quickly earning herself a spot amongst my all time favorites, there was just so much to love about this book, the words were amazing, the characters were fantastic, and the message I took away from it was priceless! Highly recommend you make time to settle down with this one, it is certain to leave your heart overflowing!!
I requested an advanced copy of this title, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
