WHY WE READ IT
I read this book because The More series got me back into reading as an adult and because Jay McLean’s books are like gold. Precious, beautiful, and hard to put down. ~Amy
I am just in love with Jay’s books. She is an automatic all-nighter/one-click author for me. I will devour her stories as soon as it is live. ~Cassie

There’s no emotion greater than fear.
No ache greater than grief.
No sound greater than silence.
I’m grateful he showed up on my doorstep,
pissed off and angry at the world.
If he hadn’t, I wouldn’t be here.
And I don’t just mean here on this journey with him.
I mean here, in this world.
I wonder what events in all our lives—hers included—are The Turning Points? The points where we all determine that the fear of our pasts and the uncertainty of our futures are greater than our need for happiness.
While time and everything around us stands unmoving… who’s to say we can’t have it all?
We wanted it all.
We wanted it with each other.
We thrived on the chaos we created.
And ignored the Mayhem that ensued.
Because falling in love was easy.
But sometimes, love isn’t enough.
Who would have known that the silent broody Dylan Banks would have so much to say? I knew he was a great man just from the way his friends talked about and respected him but, to see it first hand was incredible. His loyalty, honor, and protective nature didn’t come as a surprise. His sense of humor, playfulness, and his inner romantic did. He is everything you could want in a man wrapped up in a sexy a sin package.
His leading lady was so broken and lost in her own grief she couldn’t see past it. Watching her perspective not only on life but herself grow and change as their relationship unfolds was amazing. The dynamic between her and Dylan was electric. It was a living thing that sprung off the page and wrapped itself around you. You couldn’t get free from it (not that I wanted to). It held you captivated as their relationship built, was tested, and grew. As individuals and a couple they faced so many life changing events. Their struggle to navigate them and come out whole will build you up, tear out your heart, then do it’s best to repair it again.
There was an amazing group of characters in this book. Many we’ve met and already love. Others are new but already feel familiar. The entire group added so much to this book. None more than Jake. I liked Jake before this book, I love him after it. His presents is subtle but makes such an impact on the story. The More group is there doing what they do adding support, insight, humor, and so much Mayhem! Their love wouldn’t have survived without the love and support of the people around them.
I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to such an exceptional series.
For a character that was able to coin a phrase/motto such as “Team Silence” you would think that he would struggle to become someone with an abundance of them. You would think that he would slowly climb his way up to expressing feelings and sentiments. But that isn’t how Jay rolls. She makes him that heart and soul man that we have all sought out for so long.
What my favorite and most unique aspect of this book is that both characters needed saved. Redeemed to their former selves. I could feel the tension as they both attempted to be each other’s glue. They both will make you hurt deep down into your soul. Then they will make you feel love is a palpable object because they exude it to max. And most of all the fear. It will make your gut clench. No emotion was left unturned. It was all felt to the deepest level. This book was a slow burn for me. It is a book that builds up after a juicy start. Your feelings intensify as you read. It was a process of falling into a state that they will be in your hearts forever. It is a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat as your feelings climb from like to love to forever in your heart.
I fell in like with this book when I heard his first long-winded rant. I just couldn’t believe that she had the power to do what we all had wanted all along. It just proves that he will always go the extra mile for the ones he loves.
I fell in love when he professed his love and when mayhem ensued. That moment of seeing him being a “heart and soul” man in its most beautiful form, will most likely have you in tears. And the mayhem…I promise it is the best. The stakes are high and the retaliation are even higher.
And then I fell into forever when he overcame it all. The fear especially. Because when they overcame all the angst, hurt, loss, and most of all FEAR. So did I. I knew I would love them into the sunset. The Horizon. It was the biggest turning point.
They were meant for each other. Through anything and everything. And as for “she.” Well SHE will set your world on fire and make you believe in love and second chances again. She will be the chaos and mayhem that he needs. She will find the strength from within. To be more than enough.
