Genres: Paranormal Romance
Hotel owner Dane Harrison, middle brother of a wealthy Long Island family, needs a lounge singer for his new luxury property. With her stunning voice and amazing curves, Julia Shay is perfect. She also seems be the only woman in New York City who isn’t falling at Dane’s feet. And despite her feisty attitude and his rule against workplace affairs, he wants her—in his arms, in his bed, anywhere and everywhere.
Julia loves her new job, and she knows better than to think she can keep it and Dane. Even if he wasn’t her boss, Julia’s painful history has given her ample reason to steer clear of rich, powerful charmers. Still, their chemistry is unlike anything she’s known, and when it becomes too much to resist, they agree to one no-strings night together. But instead of quenching the fire, the intense encounter only proves how much they have to lose—or win…
The storyline in More Than You Know was good, and the ladies liked the fact that the heroine was older than usual and older than the hero (she was 41, he was 36). Some readers felt that the characters did not have believable chemistry, while others disagreed, but with the caveat that the heroine spent so much time “fighting the relationship” and “sending mixed signals” that they “wanted to smack her”. In addition, the timeline of the story was frustrating to some, who said “it bounced around so much that it was confusing.” Another reader lamented the lack of an epilogue, which she felt would have added something to the book.
