Book Review: More Than Want You by Shayla Black

More Than Want You (More Than Words, #1)
A fresh, sexy and emotional contemporary romance series by Shayla Black...

I’m Maxon Reed—real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success—my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.

Sassy College senior Keeley Kent accepts my challenge to learn how to become Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine—but I’m about to find out. 

More Than Want You is filled with  plenty of heartache, passion and surprises.  I wasn't initially a fan of the story but it quickly grew on me.

"Invest in your heart for once. Fall in love. Care about someone who can love you back. Worry less about closing the deal and open yourself to someone who can share your life. Or you're going to wind up bitter."

Maxon Reed, real estate mogul and all-around jerk is looking to distract his brother, Griff, from winning over potential clients. He and Griff had a huge falling out over a misunderstanding and now instead of working together they are battling each other to the end. Maxon finds the one person who  will be the perfect distraction, Keeley 'Sunshine' Kent. After spending a night with Keeley in his bed, he presents his offer for her services to distract Griff and after much thought Keeley accepts but on her conditions.

What Maxon hadn't expected was that he would fall for Keeley and soon would have to decide between having a relationship with Keeley or screwing Griff. 

At the beginning of the story Maxon comes off as a total prick. He puts revenge and business above all else. I was doubtful that Maxon would be able to redeem himself.  He does at the end but I wasn't 100% feeling it. Keeley has a huge heart and a huge secret. I felt conflicted when Keeley's secret is revealed. Over all the story is well written and emotionally exhausting.  4 Stars!
