    5 #TeamSilence stars!!!This is the More Than book that I was most nervous about reading. It’s Dylan’s book and we all know Dylan as the strong and silent type. After reading 4 books with the More Than gang, we don’t know much about him except he’s in the service, he’s the quiet type, and he’s got a fantastic group of friends. I didn’t know what to expect when I started this story, but it blew me away. I didn’t expect Dylan to become a favorite of mine, but he did. It should surprise me that this happened, but it doesn’t. Not really. Jay has the ability to make me fall in love with fictional characters frequently. Dylan is up there with Logan and Lucy as one of my most beloved characters of this series. I am so impressed that Jay was able to make me love this character so much. I loved Dylan with his dad and brother. I loved the relationship that Dylan had with his girl. It wasn’t perfect. Not even close, but it was right. There were so many emotions and feels, but the laughs were there too. They were that kind of couple. “We suck at talking.”
“I know.”
“Want to make out instead?”I kiss her…It’s the slowest form of slow dance. The most passionate act of foreplay.Jay’s stories are equal parts full of heartwarming moments, heartbreaking moments, humor, friendship, and love. This particular book even had a few moments that shocked me. Moments that devastated me. Yes- this book devastated me. I’m talking reading for an hour straight with tears rolling down my face. Dylan is truly broken. Something has happened to him and he’s not sure he can ever get past it. His girl is there for him, even though he constantly is trying to push her away. Grief is like a constant daze of a million fucking emotions and I don’t want to feel a single one. But it’s there. All of them.The end of this story was perfect. It made every second that was hard to read worth it. Jay’s writing style is beyond special. No one writes quite like her. What can I say about this book/ this series that I haven’t said before? It is legit fantastic. It will make you smile, make you laugh, make you cry and give you ALL THE FEELS. It’s that one series I am constantly recommending because I want everyone to experience the greatness of the ‘More World’ and fall in love with these characters the same way that I have. This was a fantastic way to end a series so close to my heart. I’m sensing an epic re-read sometime in my very near future. I’m not ready to say goodbye to these characters! More Than Enough is a 5+ star favorite for me and a book I highly recommend. Join in and experience the mayhem! “It’s a good life. A damn good life.”

    Like I said in my pre-review I loved this series and its characters but for some reason, I just didn't feel this one. I have to admit I was nervous about starting this because of the hype surrounding the identity of the heroine. The whole secrecy felt like a gimmick to me and I hate gimmick. I'd rather be told straight up. No BS whatsoever. My personal opinion (even though it's worth shit, I'm still going to give it anyway) is it should have been revealed earlier. That would give people time to deal with whatever issues they have with it not being Heidi or what. But whatever. Since I'm not the author and that ship has sailed, the point is moot but I digress.There were parts that I really enjoyed while others left me scratching my head. In the end, the issues I had overshadowed my enjoyment. I wish I loved it more, I really do.I enjoyed the cameos very much. And this is the book where I realized how amazing Jake is in his normalcy. That boy is a rock. He's probably McLean's most underrated hero and I'd love nothing more than revisit his book one of these days.Another I enjoyed was Cam and Lucy. Obviously. It's no secret that their book is my favorite and still is. These two are still hilarious and provided a much needed lightheartedness to Dylan and Riley's story. I also enjoyed the pranks and Mal and Eric and Sydney. I enjoyed the humor and the friendship these guys have.But beyond that, this book just didn't do anything for me. My lukewarm enjoyment for this book has nothing to do with the choice of heroine. I liked that it wasn't Heidi. Sorry Heidi fans but she never registered on my radar. I found her to be self-absorbed. And as much as I love second-chance love stories, I also believe that our first love isn't always our forever love. I wanted someone different for Dylan. My issue was there was no build-up to Riley at all. (view spoiler)[She was Dylan's neighbor so Dylan knows her. (hide spoiler)] Aside from that, we didn't get a lot of who she was to Dylan before the events in this book. Instead, we were given her sob story and the reason why she was this broken character. IMO, I think you can make the character sympathetic without giving her a very tragic background. I wanted to know her as Riley, (view spoiler)[the girl next door. Not just Riley, the broken alcoholic whose boyfriend got killed. (hide spoiler)]The first half of the book was slow and consisted mostly of Dylan sleeping in Riley's bed or staring at Riley while Riley drinks herself to a stupor. (view spoiler)[Don't worry, Dylan thinks Riley is still stinking cute. (hide spoiler)] The second half is where the action was.My second issue were the inconsistencies. So many character and narrative inconsistencies it's not even funny. (view spoiler)[Riley's mom, for instance. Oh my gosh, I'm sorry but is she for real? She knew her daughter was an alcoholic. She enabled her alcoholism and then suddenly, she became this wise earth mother who cares about Riley and Dylan. Umm, what? Did I miss the part where she had a personality transplant because I didn't get that. (hide spoiler)]I was so confused. And the whole (view spoiler)[alcoholism thing was, again, inconsistent. Her being an alcoholic was hardly an issue to Dylan and her mom in the first quarter of the book. But in the second part of the book, it was suddenly an issue and suddenly, she calls herself a recovering alcoholic. I missed the part where she admitted she had a problem and got herself a much needed help. But I guess, Dylan and twu wuv cured her of that. I dunno.The same thing happened with Dylan's PTSD. One session with a psychology student and he's suddenly healed. Okay. Maybe I should start taking on clients now since I have a master's degree in psychology. (hide spoiler)]Look, I get that this is fiction but this was set in a contemporary world. If you consider the tragedies these characters went through as real and true, then why not make the solution to these problems also real and true. Some things you can get away with but making light of such a serious condition just didn't sit well with me. And lastly, I'm just over the overly tragic character back stories that everyone in this series seems to have. Except maybe Jake. Like I said, with every book, the characters has to have the sobbest, brokenest, most tragic life ever to be considered interesting. (view spoiler)[ Riley lost her boyfriend in a freak accident. She felt guilty because she was there. She survived; he didn't. Not only that, she had to lose it, destroy other people's businesses along the way, gets house arrest, and become an alcoholic. Same with Dylan. Not only did he get shot at, he had to watch his best friend take his life, etc.(hide spoiler)] It's like a freaking competition. I'm over it. For what it's worth, this series still remains as one of my faves. I will always be grateful for Jay McLean for giving us these characters. Sorry, I just couldn't love this one as much as the others.ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    4.5 Mayhem STARSIn keeping with the Team Silence hype, the heroine’s identity will not be revealed in my review. I will say that the heroine is perfect for Dylan and that her identity is revealed in the Prologue. Dylan is deployed in Afghanistan and due to an injury he finds himself back home living with his father and brother, Eric. Dylan’s family was a wonderful addition to this story as was of course… the whole gang! The heroine is in a very bad place living her own nightmares daily and dealing with it with alcohol. Dylan keeps coming back to the heroine and he’s not sure what he’s looking for from her exactly but he knows he doesn’t want to be anywhere else but with her in her room.”Me knocking. Her opening. Us in her room. Me in her bed. Her in her corner. I sleep. She writes. She cries. We never ask why.”Dylan helps the heroine move on while they fall or re-fall madly in love. This story has so much heart, angst, humor and once I finished I was pretty exhausted. The ride was more than worth it and the couple’s ending was well deserved! ”I trust her with our love. I trust her with my life.”This story has so many highs and lows and ugh scenes that broke my heart. In the end, the gang has now all been happily matched to their soulmates. This couple’s road to their calm of the horizon will grab readers and won't release you till long after you finish the story. In case you haven't heard, this one just went live. Enjoy! *ARC provided by the amazing Jay McLean for an honest review*

    FIVE BANKS STARS"We wanted it all.We wanted it with each other."Jay McLean has an extraordinary talent of making you forget the world around you. Love or dislike her stories you'd have to be crazy not to realise that this author has a publishing house full worth of writing talent. Her words and characters are mesmerising and once again I was blown away by her ability to pour out her heart into the pages she creates. 'More Than Enough' was one of my most anticipated book releases of 2015 and to say that I was pleased at the result would be a huge understatement. Jay McLean is fast becoming one of my favourite authors and I can't help but find myself falling for yet another one of her never to be forgotten tales of the heart. What's is all about?Dylan Banks finds himself returning home from his time serving as a US marine soldier. With his mind set on returning back to his fellow comrades this hero is not expecting life to throw a curveball in the shape of the girl who will be the one to win over his heart. But life doesn't always fall in line with expectations and this hero is about to embark on a remarkable journey of finding that his heart belongs to someone other than himself. Follow this emotional journey of one less than silent hero and the girl who winds up being the love of his life. But be warned readers Jay McLean will own your time, emotions and heart as you find yourself falling in love with this final book in the more than series. What did I love?I love that this book was unexpected and honest. I love that once again I was taken on a spectacular McLean journey and I love that this author puts together words straight from the heart and doesn't restrict her own creative ability. And if all that isn't enough I also can't help but fall in love over and over again with the characters in this series and it makes me smile that I didn't think I had room to fall for another one of this series heroes, yet I find myself amazed at Jay McLeans hero imagination. And if you need me to convince you further of my love for all things Jay McLean then I can gladly own up to the fact that what I loved most of all is that this gorgeous author creates stories that make me laugh, cry and feel outrageously angry all at the same time. 'More Than Enough' is a book that is so wonderfully thought out and executed in a way that makes it unforgettable. So much so that it gave me one impressive (and long lasting) book hangover. I can't explain in words why I love reading so much but I can concede that authors like Jay McLean feed my addiction in such a way that mean I'll never be able to break my habit of a lifetime. Final thoughts ...I have to admit a little jealously here, I arrived into the More than family a little late in the game, so I can't admit to knowing how it feels to have followed this author on her journey from the start, but what I can own up to is falling in love with this series from the moment I picked up book one earlier this year. If you can admit to loving the new adult genre (an admittance I carry with pride) and you love it when an author is able to simultaneously break you heart then piece you back together again then you can not miss out on this series. As for those readers who can identify with the feeling of jumping on board the McLean emotional roller coaster then you can understand my struggle with saying goodbye to characters that have found a permanent place in my reading heart. Enjoy, readers. Kisses.**ARC provided by the gorgeous author Jay McLean in exchange for an honest review.**

    This is one of my all-time favorite series and I know this hard to believe, but my favorite in the series. Dylan Banks is something so incredibly special to me and now my favorite More Man. I know, I know this is a huge deal, because I have loved all these guys so hard, but Dylan is More than Enough for me. He is more than I expected and I can honestly say Dylan was worth the wait. Because pretty girls have ugly hearts, and I’ve had enough of both. Throughout the series I have never paid a ton of attention to Dylan. He was always wrapped up in drama and I am not a fan of drama, but from the beginning of More than Enough I fell in love. I fell in love with the selfless, broken boy who saw he could do more and did. When the story begins Dylan is returning home from war and is injured. He is dealing with nightmares, guilt and a sense of failure, but that does stop him from going above and beyond to help someone else. Dylan’s love interest has experienced great loss and is still struggling when Dylan arrives home. I absolutely loved how Dylan was there for her when she needed him, but when she needed to step up she didn’t hesitate. Both of them were selfless in their love, but imperfect, realistic characters. Like all of Jay’s stories there wasn’t any insta-love, their connection took time to develop and there were definitely growing pains. It’s the slowest form of slow dance. The passionate act of foreplay. This isn’t just my favorite in the More Series but, it’s one of my favorites I read this year. I love how despite this being a long story I couldn’t get enough. I love how when I finished I was still thinking about it and wanting to tell the world how fantastic it is. I loved how it made me feel, it was a roller coaster of emotions and once I got started I couldn’t stop. I was completely engaged and felt everything the characters felt. More than Enough had Jay’s signature More style. I loved seeing the rest of the Mayhem Group and having them share in the highs and lows. I love the “family” they have formed and how they are always there when they need each other. I loved the book comments that any book lover can recognize, they always make me smile or laugh out loud. I loved how the story was light and fun, but also had so much depth and heart. It was the perfect mix and in the end there was nothing I would change. Jay McLean has quickly become one of my favorite authors. It’s kind of like your relationship with your significant other, you think you love them in the beginning, but after years together you realize your love only grows. Same with Jay, I thought I loved her books in the beginning, but every book I read I realize my love for her stories multiples. Her stories are unique, emotional and entertaining. I highly recommend.It was in each other. We found the horizon. He found his calm. And I found my reality.ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

    ★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★It's LIVE!Amazon US | Amazon UK"What I had wasn't enough. I wanted more than enough."This book to me was EVERYTHING! I felt so much, I lived every moment with them and the words on the pages were so spectacular and perfect, I still can't even think straight 48 hours after reading it.Lance Corporal Dylan Banks is a man of few words but when he sees that he is needed, to help bring a girl back from the brink of despair, he becomes a man who gives her the hope she needs to move on from a loss that has had her sinking into a life of depression and grief. "I try to remember the color of her eyes, and the only thing I can come up with is sad. Her eyes are the color of sadness."He understands the need for the silence, and the need for comfort through just being there, connecting with another person who just knows you on a deep seated level of intuition, and who feels you mind and soul.Through this bonding, he falls deeper and deeper and the thought of leaving her, this woman who he has seen at her lowest low, and has overcome the sad in her life, makes him feel helpless when he has to return to duty and he is once again in the midst of a war in Afghanistan.Just when everything is perfect, a devastating event interrupts their happiness and the real journey to battle for a happy ending begins.This book touches on depression in several forms and it was absolutely heartbreaking to watch it all take place on the page, especially when a proud and honourable man becomes a man who has the ability to hurt the ones he loves by words alone. But the strength that his forever girl has is fierce and she repays him for saving her by saving him, even if it means she loses him.Whilst I spent hours crying over the pure heartache this book delivered, the author balanced it out with the most funny and entertaining dialogue and one liners that gave me such joy that I am in awe of how she weaves a story together so perfectly. There were so many little details that I know without a doubt that I will read this book again just so that I can experience the magic all over again.So many things I loved about this book, and seeing as this is the finale of the More series, I cannot not mention the rest of the gang and their mayhem madness. Everyone that we have come to love was present, and it was a bitter-sweet end, but so, so good.I feel like I have gone on such an emotional journey and I wouldn't change a single thing about it, which is why I have added this book to my all time favourites shelf.There is a lot more I could say but if I did we'd be here all day, so I think it's best just to say thank you Jay McLean for this series.This is a New Adult romance, and the last in the series. Can be read as a standalone, but not recommended due to the sheer brilliance of the other books. Told in dual POV. ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an honest review

    <5 My Heart is Full of Mayhem Stars!I finished this read at 1am and just reset the book and began to re-read all my highlighted passages for another hour. This took a while as I think I must have highlighted over ½ of the book. I was so completely drained emotionally and yet, I could not sleep. As cliché as it may seem, I don’t know if 10 stars would be “more than enough” to adequately convey my adoration for this author and this story. It is not secret that I am a fan of the More Series. I am a Jaybird and proud to stalk the hell out of McLean! That being said, I am a fan because I believe in her writing. I get her stories. I feel her passion, her humor, and her perfectly imperfect characters. I love to laugh and cry right along with the fictional characters she brought into my life. More Than Enough, book 5 in the More Series, is IMO, her best in series. Perhaps it was because Dylan Banks was so intriguing to me, or the fact that he was “a man of little words.” I knew when it was time for his story to be told it would be no less than epic. I am so happy that I was in no way let down…I have been BANKSED and feel better for having had it happen! I won’t recap the story and ruin the experience for those who take the MORE journey. TEAM SILENCE all the way! The heroine…the whys…the love story…everything is realized right along with the reader and it is beyond breath-taking. I won’t fill this review with images as McLean’s work is beautiful enough without my attempt to “image it.” I also have no way of tying in quotes, because where would I possibly start? The whole book is chalk full of lyrical prose and profound concepts that I wonder where this angst genius stems from.So, Kudos to Jay McLean and her beyond fabulous stories. Thank you for all the Operation Mayhem moments. Thank you for the sweet first loves and the bumps in the road to forevers. Thank you for the age appropriate intimacy and the progressive scorching heat. Thank you for the bond of friendship that is more…that is family. Thank you for recognizing grief, no matter why the source, and for keeping it ugly. Most importantly, thank you for showing light in the most dark of times. More Than Enough can be read as angst filled romance, but if just one person can find help with what Jay McLean delivered then I too am thankful for that!

    3 Stars!Love this series but didn't love this one. I was ready to not finish it around 50% because I was bored. Then something happened that had me interested again but I don't know after a while it still wasn't holding my attention. I loved that we got so much of the rest of the gang! They had me laughing many times! I will miss them all! ** I've been in a serious book funk lately. Nothing is grabbing me any more so that could also be why I didn't love this one. So don't let my opinion stop you from grabbing this book I'm sure it's probably just me! **

    TITLE: More Than EnoughSERIES: (More Than, #5) AUTHOR: Jay McLean GENRE: Contemporary RomanceRELEASE DATE: November 07th, 2015MY RATING: 5 OPERATION MAYHEM STARSIf you've not read this series or god forbid come across this author before seriously read the first book in this series from there you will be hooked, I'd only come across this series early this year and from then on I was hooked like a hooker, you know those rare books that you come across and you get those feels?? The never wanting something sooooo good to end?? The angst, the love, the hate, the laughs the tears, throw all those feelings all in a bundle and that's what I get each and every time I read this series..And to get that feeling?? It only costs a few bucks and it's drug free, go one click that first book it will be the best money you've ever spent on a book.. MORE THAN ENOUGHStarts off in the thick of a war zone taking place in Afghanistan, Dylan is shot in the shoulder during a take down operation and is sent back home on medical leave to re-cooperate where he finds himself living back home with his father and brother, adding his brother to the story has more than a few giggles in the story as these two go out of their way to outdo the other.. RileyThere’s no emotion greater than fear.No ache greater than grief.No sound greater than silence.No sooner is he back home and knocking on the his neighbours door who plays the same song over and over at a high level, she's in a bad place, numbing her pain and grief with alcohol..What becomes a daily routine of him knocking on her door to her letting him in things between these two progress slowly..It may not be the perfect relationship, but it's perfect for these two.. I hope to god she doesn't see that maybe I'm as fucked up as she is. That while she uses alcohol to hide the mayhem inside her, I'm using her.For the first time since he knocked on my door - angry and pissed off at the world - we found what we were looking for. And it sure as hell wasn't in the bottom of a bottle. It was in each other.We found the horizon.He found his calm.And I found my reality.We set a routine..Me knocking..Her opening..Us in her room..Me in her bed..Her in her corner..I sleep..She writes..I watch..She cries..We never ask why.. It's the slowest form of slow dance.The most passionate act of foreplay. So many times reading this I've caught myself giggling, then the next minute those feels will hit me, such an up and down roller coaster of a can you go from giggling and then in a space of seconds with such sadness in your heart for the pain these two characters carry around inside of them.. “You know, it’s strange… that you can see someone every day for over two years of your life… look into their eyes, touch them, feel their hair between your fingers, see them smile, hear them laugh—and then it gets taken away from you and nothing.”~ Riley A truly epic end to one of my all time favourite series, mixed emotions closing that last page and saying goodbye to this series that I never wanted to end, I loved the whole gang, the time I spent in each book getting to know each and every character that Jay brought alive in my heart..One of those series that I'm penning in for a re read over Christmas..

    This was one of my all time most anticipated reads, ever! And I struggled to finish it. The first four More Than books are beyond spectacular, and I am so glad I got to experience all the awesomeness that is Jay McLean at her very best in those books, which I have read and re-read and have adored them each time I read them. This one - not so much. In fact, I came pretty close to not finishing this. I think it's because I couldn't connect with the characters, I had to keep reminding myself they were adults and not still in high school. In the first four More Than books they WERE in high school but never acted as childish as Dylan and Riley did. I so wanted Heidi to be the heroine, after the abortion was mentioned in an earlier book I was excited to see how the author was going to handle this, and am sure it would have been EPIC. Also, D&H had been part of the group from the beginning, I didn't like having a new character play the heroine. Which brings me to the actual heroine - Riley. Whilst at first I was a bit disappointed that the book wasn't about Heidi and Dylan, I ended up liking Riley until she became a doormat, and hoo boy! Did she ever become a doormat. Dylan - I struggled with his juvenile behaviour that morphed into someone I totally didn't like in the second half of the book. He gave me whiplash at times. I didn't believe in their relationship, it failed to hit me in the feels. I also wanted them to discuss and sort out their problems which didn't happen, it seemed to be brushed away. I also didn't believe in Dylan's commitment to the relationship. So, although this sadly was a fail for me, I will always hold Jake & Mikayla, Logan & Amanda and Cam & Lucy dear to my heart. I loved their cameos in MTE, especially Cam and Lucy who are my favourites in the series. Their book wrecked me, in such a good way ♥

I really anticipated this damn book and to find that out- just kinda threw me off guard!And yes, I'm pissed and sad because I feel like I'm emotionally invested in this series! The author probably have some reasons why she decided to take a different route and I know despite everything- its still going to be a great book but right now I'm just so sad!!!Oh well.. I'm still going to read the book but not today... just not today.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    “I’ll show you our reality. Just you and me. And it’ll be perfect. You’ll see.”5 starsI am a huge fan of this series, and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book. Dylan has been such a mysterious part of the group, and I couldn’t wait for the chance to get to know him better. Up until now the strong and silent type, Dylan shows that he is deeply feeling, effortlessly charming, and has a wicked sense of humour, and I can now say that he has become a firm favourite. I’ll keep the mystery by not revealing who his heroine is, but I will say that OMG this is one amazing love story! The story begins with both Dylan and his heroine at rock bottom. She is dealing with a devastating tragedy, and he has been injured in Afghanistan and sent home to recuperate. They are both struggling to deal with real life, and are lost in grief, guilt and anger at their circumstances, and it’s all of those feelings that bring them together. Just being together, not talking, not dealing with the past, is enough to bring both of them a sense of calm, and they are drawn together in a way that neither of them can deny. “Can we just…” I motion to my room. “… be?” His smile reaches his eyes. “We can be whatever you want … As long as I’m with you.”Of course as time goes by, they open up to each other and things start to change, and it’s a beautiful journey for them as they drag each other out of their despair and heartache and into a new life together. And it’s not only emotional and beautifully romantic, but it’s also funny with lots of jokes, teasing and great banter. The way they come together is gorgeously heart-warming with a nice amount of sexy time, and I adored every single moment of it.“We suck at talking.”“I know.”“Want to make out instead?”“You’re just a little broken … That’s all. Now you just have to let me be the glue that keeps you together.”If you are DESPERATE for more specific details (including heroine identity), here are go - (view spoiler)[No, it’s not Heidi, and honestly, I’m glad. As much as I love a second-chance-romance, after secrets revealed in the last book, I didn’t want them back together. Dylan’s past with Heidi is addressed, as is their break up (and it’s handled very well), and it very quickly becomes evident that their relationship wasn’t as perfect as it may have seemed, and Dylan definitely needs to move on. What I had wasn’t enough. I wanted more than enough.Dylan’s heroine is Riley, a new character to the series and the girl who moved in next door to him when she was just 12. A year ago Riley lost the love of her life to a tragic accident. Since then she gets through her days drunk and hiding in her room. Dylan comes into her life in the most unexpected way, and the way he is there for her and draws her out is fantastic. But it’s the way he falls for her and pursues her romantically which absolutely stole my heart. “Start from the beginning,” Dylan says. “Tell me how you met. How he asked you out. Where he took you on the first date. Your first kiss. Tell me how he made you feel. Tell me how he loved you.” I sniff back my heartbreak and look up at him. “Why?” “Because, Riley,” he says, kissing the top of my head. “I plan on loving you like he did.”Holy freaking swoon! Riley has a lot of guilt over moving on after the death of her boyfriend, but her confidence and trust in Dylan is unwavering as she finds the strength to move on and open her heart again. I loved her!“I’m falling so hard for you, Dylan Banks.”…” I’m already there, Riley Hudson.” (hide spoiler)]The story takes a big turn in the second half, and this is where the feels really become intense. The rock bottom from the start of the book seems easy compared to everything they are faced with in the second half and I read with my heart breaking and tears streaming down my face. Jay McLean gets you right into the heart and soul of these characters as they go through hell, and I felt every single moment. But watching their slow struggle out of the turmoil is worth every moment of the pain as they find themselves, and their way back to the peace and happiness that they found in each other. It’s absolutely amazing!“I’m here because I need you. I’m here because you’re the only thing I need. You’re enough, babe. You’re everything!” As always, the entire More gang is along for the ride, and I loved the chance to catch up with them all. They are there to support Dylan and his girl through everything that they go through, but it’s the funny moments that I loved the most. From Dylan’s complete electronic ineptitude to book club, Lucy’s drunken outbursts and the outrageous pranks, I was laughing out loud so many times! I also loved Dylan’s family – his brother, Eric, in particular is freaking hilarious! The side characters bring so much to the story, but their antics help lighten the mood of the book, and the mix of the awesome camaraderie and ridiculousness that is this group together, with the romance and intensity of the rest of the book is brilliantly done. I adored this book. Definitely a hard read at times, but so beautifully written. This story was perfect - I laughed, I cried, my heart was broken and then fixed again, and I fell in mad, mad love.“Sometimes you need to have nightmares to appreciate the dreams.”Bravo Jay McLean! 5 stars.

    4 ★'s "What I had wasn't enough.I wanted more than enough."I missed all the secrecy, mystery, and commotion regarding this book so you can imagine my confusion when I started reading it. Obviously, the book is about Dylan but who he ends up with is the mystery. I kept trying to connect the dots to Heidi, because, duh, that's who he's suppose to end up with. It was so frustrating to say the least but you just have to keep reading.The book really sucks you in because of what the characters have gone through and are going through. You just want them to get get help. And it is really sad. I was really surprised by Dylan. I had not quite gotten a "feel" for him in the prior books but I really enjoyed him in this one. That is, until the drama happens towards the end. He was sooo MEAN! Understandably so, but was hard to take. As always, I love when the gang comes through and boy, did they come through on this one...especially Jake. But they were all so vital in so many ways. I also really enjoyed getting to know Dylan's brother and his Dad. They were all really sweet together and it was great how they always had each other's backs. The pranks were pretty hilarious although I do think that Dylan got the worse of it. I do love how he incorporated it into something at the was perfect! Overall, I'm both sad and happy to end this series. It wore me out! So much emotion and angst...definitely a winner if that's something you crave!

    JAY MCLEAN KICKED MY ASS!DYLAN BANKS IS SOOOOO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT I WAS EXPECTING As it was only released last week and out of respect for #TeamSilence. I am not going to use words in this review. I am going to show you the roller coaster I went through, Just like when it all began 2 years ago. All I can say is I was very sad to see this gang go as they have been a big part of my life, but fuck it was fun watching them go out in style!

    2.75 - 3 starsit's kinda hard to give one your fave series and authors a low rating but it took a good 60% of the book for me personally to really start getting into this one if i'm honest and it had nothing to do with who the heroine was. i was fine either way with what the author had planned for her readers in that regard. although, the secret of who it would be did feel a little ridiculous tbh but whatever, it gave great buzz so do what you do.i have loved this series from the start and jay mclean is one of my absolute faves so as ridiculous as it may sound, it's actually depressing to say i didn't enjoy this book, but for some reason i just found it so hard to connect with this story. i enjoyed it a bit more after about 60% but just didn't outright love it. i'm in the minority with this and that's okay. i thought dylan would be my favorite all along. i do love the strong silent type, throw in the marine element and usually i am all in! but i felt pretty indifferent to him for the most part and the heroine, well the same thing for most of the entire book. i was more excited with our previous 'more' characters and family members having page time (ps: jake can get it!) *ahem* and dylans brother eric? he was more exciting to me tbh.overall i liked this book but didn't find myself emotionally invested in it like i have the previous ones. i could easily put it down and walk away whereas previous books, you just couldn't tear me away until i finished. i don't think i could re-read dylans story and i've read this series multiple times. while there were some emotional and heart-breaking moments towards the end that sucked me in and had me misty eyed at one point, it still just didn't quite get there for me. maybe my hopes were to high, who knows..

    This isn't a real review because I haven't actually gone very far into the book, but I'm going to have to DNF.(view spoiler)[I don't often do this, but you know when you buy something because it's comfortable and familiar and predictable? And that's the reason you're attracted to it? Well, when that happens, the last thing you want is for it to turn around and be something completely different. That's not what attracted you to it in the first place, you know? And it's even more disappointing when it turns on you. Well that's what happened with this series. I was expecting one thing. I was looking forward to one thing. I've just re-read the whole series in anticipation of this final story. I had my own ideas about how it would go down and was weirdly really looking forward to reading about it, despite this being an NA romance series. And then I got this and... I feel pretty damn disappointed.I'm embarrassed to say I'm a little gutted lol. Oh well. I guess that's that. I'm really not sure what the hell this author was thinking. (hide spoiler)]

    It's sad for me to see this series go out like this. I know that an author can do whatever the hell they want with their own work. I really believe that. So I'm not mad, just sad. I loved this series. I feel like Jay McLean created this incredible group of friends who were such canon characters, and you couldn't wait to hear EACH story. And every book gave all these little hints and it drew you in and built on the books before it (and supposedly after) It was so brilliant. All I'm saying is, in book 1, there were 7 people in that limo. And everybody just knew, These were THEIR books.(view spoiler)[ This book isn't about Dylan and Heidi :((hide spoiler)]And why the hell NOT?! Their story was so set up from the very beginning. Like I said. I'm sad

    I've been waiting a long time for this book. Well..maybe not really that long, but when you want something bad enough, every minute waiting for it seems too long.I am a huge fan of this series.... HUGE !! So when this gem came out, I devoured it :PI absolutely loved this book. It had love, heartbreak, friendship and so much more. I cried, laughed and swooned.Problem is... I just can't tell you much more. Because like many others, I decided to not explain anything about the plot. I just don't want to ruin anything for anybody, so I best keep my mouth shut ;)All I am gonna say is, that this is Dylan's story, and it's everything I hoped it would be.I also loved catching up with the old gang....and operation Mayhem made me pee my pants.This one get's 4,5 "Mayhem" stars from me !!I just can't give it a full 5 because Cam and Lucy will always be my favorite !!! They had me cracking up in this one too !!And Lucy girl...we should be best friends....but only if we can also share Cam !!!I highly recommend this series and it's spin-off "Preston Brothers" !!!

    5+ "out of this world" StarsI honestly don't have words to describe what I just read.FierceLoveHeartbreakLoyaltyForgivenessGuiltFriendshipFamilyMayhemAlways ForeverThis book hit every emotion one can possibly have, and it was written flawlessly. Jay McLean hits it out the the park with this book. Dylan and "her" story is one that I couldn't be happier for. I can be honest and say I wasn't so sure I was happy it wasn't about a certain someone, but now that I have read this amazing story, I couldn't imagine it any other way.This series has been "more" than you can ever want in a book series. The feelings she shares with you are overwhelming at its best. Thank you Jay McLean for writing a series that I will never forget. ❤❤❤___________________________________I have officially re-read this whole series, waiting for this book to come out this week... Jay McLean just pressed published. :) Halle-freaking-lujah! ❤❤❤this wait could be the death of me... :( :( :(July 12, 2015

    Ok so I dont normally leave reviews but I felt that I kinda had to with this one simply because I was looking forward to this so much and I was so excited when i saw it was out but ultimately I ended up being disappointed...Since from what I understand we are supposed to if possible keep quiet about the heroin's identityimma warn you all that there are spoilers ahead about that if you dont want to know.Its not Heidi and tbh thats probably the reason I hated this so much. If you dont have a problem with Dylan not ending up with Heidi then you will probably like the book, sure its a bit tiring at this point that every character has an even more tragic back story (its not a competition, surely there are other ways to work angst into books and make them interesting...) and the actual heroin Riley has her own issues that for me were a bit glossed over (view spoiler)[ she is an alcoholic whose mother helps feed her addiction and she is just "healed" because of Dylan.. not really healthy lets be honest (hide spoiler)] but overall its a nice book with some hot and funny moments.But the Heidi thing really bothered me. First of all it annoyed me because I was almost certain it was gonna be her and well expectation is the root of all heartache :P From the previous books especially Amanda and Logan's it seemed like such an interesting story, what happened between Heidi and Dylan and if you read the christmas cards the author put up on her site for the characters the one Heidi sent to Logan said "I'm glad she was enough to bring you home(meaning Amanda) maybe one day I'll be more than enough"So that with the title of the book made me really think it was her. Also the way they were on the previous books when he came back (sorry I dont remember which book particularly its been so long)the fact that they had sex on Cam and Lucy's wedding and their short encounter when he asks if she needs help with her stuff and she hides away in her car or how he is upset when she leaves really made me think this was gonna be their book and a lot of other people too i think. However what made it truly bad for me was the way the author described Dylan and Heidi's relationship. Heidi was described as someone really shitty to be with and apparently Dylan was miserable with her or whatever but that really didnt seem to be the case with the first book where they were together apart from where he got jealous and she didnt understand but I only found that as something that could be solved.. What pissed me off even more was the way the abortion/baby thing was handled. I really was looking forward to reading the scene where Heidi told Dylan and I was disappointed we didnt get that as well as Heidi's feelings at the time and everything. Also Dylan at the very end tbh really didnt care or anything about it all and for me it made me dislike him a bit mostly because he didnt really care about Heidi and well since I obvs wanted them together that didnt make me happy. I also couldnt oversee the inconsistency between the books. Like in the last books Heidi was feeling awful about the abortion and she was drowning her pain in alcohol and here thats just not there and she gets a boyfriend and thats it? I'm sorry but at this point I'm kind of hating the way the author has treated her because she seemed to be such an interesting character with so much potential.All in all I was really disappointed with this book. I feel like Heidi and Dylan's realionship had so much potential that wasnt exploited and no matter how much I tried I couldnt like where this book was going. It sucks because I have waited all this time just to be disappointed but well we cant have everything I guess..

    More than Enough is the 5th book in the More Than new adult series by Jay McLean. I binge-read the first 4 books in December 2014 and loved them. This one was still entertaining but not as good. It lacked believability and interest at the beginning and while I loved our MC male and female, I wasn't IN LOVE with their romance. I thought certain parts weren't healthy and very much fell into NA tropes I find annoying. Any reference to a romantic partner "saving the other person" from themselves isn't a good image to perpetuate. Also the risk for violence or anger issues as well. BUT I did appreciate this next chapter in the series and thought the second half of the book picked up.

I felt as if there wasn't enough going on, not enough plot, and far too much inner-monologue dealing with nothing but emotions. I didn't think too much of Riley up until the 50% mark, she was sort of bland.But when the second half kicked in; there was drama, there was personality and there was the feels, even though much pain was caused, I loved it because it made me feel. The side characters came back with a bang, instead of fleeting in the first half. And Dylan, sigh I loved him.I was a little miffed by (view spoiler)[how there was no physical problems for Riley after quitting drinking, and how easily she got over Dylan's meanness, I wanted him to work for it, or make some grand gesture to win her back.

    6 STARS – Get ready for so much MORE…This review will be a bit different from my others for one reason and one reason only, it needs to be totally vague and spoiler free. That being said here it goes.I’ve been reading and following this author ever since the day I discovered More than This on Amazon. It was my first book by her and since that day, I have read and reviewed every single one of her books. She’s without a doubt one of my very favorite authors EVER!More than Enough is meant (at this time, I can always hope right???) to be the last book in this series and this just breaks my heart. I have become overly attached to every single one of the characters and for that reason I never wanted this series to end. I couldn’t imagine a world where I couldn’t look forward to revisiting them again for the first time. They have become real to me, even though they are not…I know they are fictional but that does nothing to lessen my emotional attachment to them.I went into this book only knowing whose book it would be, everything else was left to surprise. And that is the way it needs to be read and enjoyed. I purposely read wayyyyyyy slower than I normally do, because I never wanted to end and this way it would last longer. This is without a doubt the best piece of writing that Jay McLean has ever produced. This book is going to twist you up into emotional knots, and pull at your heart in ways you never thought possible. McLean’s writing is impeccable and her characters are literally unforgettable. Their stories are the ones that will never leave you and you’ll never want them to. This series has been intensely emotional from the very start but with this last book she cranks it up by 100. If you’ve never read the series, which I’m not even sure how that is possible, then you need to. It’s a must read for anyone who enjoys romance with feels beyond what you are used to experiencing and if you have read the series, like I have, many times by the way, then this book is going ruin you for life afterwards. I cried, swooned, laughed to the point of tears, shouted, cursed, threw things and cried some more. More than Enough is intense and heart felt, it’s incredibly raw and unapologetic. It gives you everything that you wanted for this final book and then more. Jay McLean took this story to places that I never even dreamed of and she did it perfectly. EVERY SINGLE WORD IS PERFECTION! It’s just EVERYTHING!Now stop reading this review and go get the book, it’s worth all the waiting and every single tear that you will shed while reading it. FAN GIRL BOOK BLOG TOP ALL TIME FAVORITE!

    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.

    Jay McLean did it again... she managed to hook me from page number one and from there I was a complete goner. I absolutely loved Riley and Dylan.... and again, the entire gang of friends/family that Jay managed to make me love both individually and as a group. This was a beautiful story and and one of my all time favorite series.
