Time might not heal all wounds, but with two motivated and strong-willed men on a campaign to win him back, Charlie will get more than he ever thought possible.
Charlie “Chase” Rhodes
It’s funny how when you’re a kid you think you have it all figured out. You think you know who you’re going to be when you grow up, what you’re going to do. And yet, you can’t actually see yourself as a grown-up. I mean, grown-ups are old. And they’re constantly saying shit we think we’ll never say and doing shit we think we’ll never do.
When I think back to how many times I said I’d never do this and I’d never say that, I want to cringe. Because you know what? I do all of it now.
Just this morning, when I was getting the kids off to school and they were fighting with each other over who got to hold a spatula—yeah, I know—I told them to stop talking to each other. No, really, I did. This was me: “Bobby, Stephi! You…
... Partly that is because Charlie is a fabulous narrator. I just loved his dialog and his inner voice. ... He is confident and sharp witted and determined to be himself. ... Charlie is also the heart of the story, the person who ties the three men together, the one who is the nurturer and the caregiver and who is the rock that builds their family. ... I will be vague on the details here to avoid spoiling some significant events, but I will just say the three men reunite and there is an opportunity for them to all three be together. Again, the author really shows us how far these three men have come over the years (it has been about 20 since the start of the book). ..The three men are fabulous together and all make a perfect family... So I totally adored this story and it is my favorite for sure by this author. I loved the slow sweetness to the story. It is actually fairly light on the sex, at least by this author's standards, but at the same time, the passion and intensity between these men when they are together is amazing. Just the smallest scenes are so heated and meaningful. They are so sexy and romantic and loving that I just adored them. I loved Charlie's humor and narration, loved the way the story builds one relationship at a time until ultimately it all comes together. I just adored the whole thing. Exceptionally well…
A family size package of Double Stuf Oreo cookies - that's what this book reminded me of. For me, that equates to a package full of pure bliss. And, as if one helping were not enough, I had to gorge myself with a second (or in this case, an immediate re-read)! ... I dare you not to fall in love with Charlie - in fact, I'll double dare you... Those two cookie shells need the fluffy center - it's the only thing that makes them complete. And those three pieces together? A little taste of heaven on earth! ... While it may seem logical to expect sadness in a story involving splits, this is not a sad story. Yes, there is clearly some pain involved, but the story doesn't dwell in those areas. The author keeps things moving along and you can't help but look forward to the next chapter in their lives. ... So, yeah, a family size package of Double Stuf Oreo cookies - that's what this book is all about. Grab the package and be a glutton. It's more than worth it!
More Than Everything (Family Series Book 3) had a bit of everything in it. Humor. Coming of Age. Erotica. Menage.
I adored Charlie as a narrator. He was humorous, witty, playful and honest. ... Charlie's narration is his larger than life personality and I couldn't resist his charm. Some books tell us characters are charming but this book not only showed me his charm but sucked me in with his charm. ... This is a book about people maturing and making decisions on who to build a life with. Though this romance has three people, it's not a ménage in the strictest sense as it isn't about sex really. Yes, the men do have sex together at novel's end (don't think I'm spoiling anything to say that in a Cardeno C. novel which always has trademark hot sex!) However, the relationship development between the three men is what this romance is about. It's fairly straightforward and certainly sweet as readers expect in a Cardeno C. novel.
