Bella's Review: 4 Stars

I'm always intrigued by relationships with 3 people.

Make it an M/M/M relationship and I'm even more intrigued!!!

I listened to More Than Everything on audio and I LOVED the narration. He did a great job bringing the character's to life, especially Charlie.

This book is told in 3 different parts. And I did like how Cardeno C really spoke directly to the reader.

What I liked about this book:
~The writing - clever way to tell a story. The writing sucked me in and I was so curious to find how this threesome ended up together.
~ Span of many years. We go through Charlie and Scott being teenagers and first loves, to college to adulthood. There is some serious history between these guys and I loved watching the characters grow.
~ Charlie. He was definitely my favorite. I wanted to jump into the story and become best friends with him. I loved how he stood his ground and was himself no matter who judged him.
~ Chemistry. HOLY. SMOKING. HOTNESS. This book is hot.

What I didn't like about this book:
~ I would have liked a bit more history on how Adan and Scott became a couple.
~ I can't believe how quickly Scott and Adan decide to convince Charlie to be with them. I mean. I would have expected a bit more...discussion and feelings on the matter. It seemed to come together rather quickly.

Bottom line: Super hot read of an unconventional m/m/m relationship. I really enjoyed the audiobook.

Bella's Review: 3 Stars

This is a friends to lovers m/m romance. 

Caleb and Andrew have been friends since they were 14 years old. Best friends. 

I really enjoyed watching Caleb and Andrew's friendship develop - they truly love each other unconditionally. And their chemistry is off the charts hot. 


Man did I want to reach into the book and shake some sense into them!!! Wake up, gentlemen. The man of your dreams is RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. 

And when Andrew was with Drake....I can't even. Andrew is a brain surgeon, literally, and I couldn't believe how stupid he was being in that relationship. Sigh. 

Alas, they wake up and realize they are in love. 

And the book ends. 

There is a bonus chapter. But I would have loved to revel in their relationship a bit more with how long it took these guys to get there. 

Bottom line: I listened to the audiobook and the narrator did a great job. I wish these guys would have woken up to their good fortune a bit sooner, but I did love their chemistry.
