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…
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.
I loved these guys. ... they all had great chemistry together and were super hot! ...this story was really about love and hope, and showed how people grow and change. There were times that my heart absolutely broke for them, but I think that everything worked out how it was supposed to and I loved seeing how far they had all come. I really believed that the relationship between the three of them was about love and that all of them fit well together with no jealousy between them. Often times with a menage it can end up feeling as though someone is left out sometimes or that it is not quite even with the feelings, but I didn't feel that way at all with this story. I think it really helped that both of them had loved and lost Charlie before, and they weren't about to let that happen again. They went out of their way to show him that he was their missing piece, and it just worked for me. I would definitely recommend this one if you are a M/M fan and like menage stories.
This was an awesome, hilarious romance between three men. ... This story line hinted of pure romantic drama but for some reason, Cardeno C. did not do the usual and instead surprises us readers with a lot romance, lots of laughter, some ridiculously hilarious situations and the Lentils Misadventure. That particular chapter had me giggling and laughing so hard I was crying. Of course the dogs were kind of weirded out as I was doing that at 3 a.m. Yes, 3 in the morning! Once I picked this up again after a suddenly and unexpectedly busy day, I just could not put it down. ... More Than Everything is an incredible story of love, humor and life. It has topped all of the other books written by the author, become my Family Series favorite, and set up the bar higher of readers' expectations for the author's future works.
