*Release Blitz and Review* More than Forever by Jay McLean

Title: More Than Forever

Author: Jay McLean

Genre: New Adult

Release Date: July 12, 2014


There is a love so fierce it cannot be measured. 
A heart so strong it will never slow. 
There is a promise so sure it can never lie.
He promised me that love forever.
Even when it wasn’t enough.
Forever. Everlasting. Eternal.
There is no measure of time. 
No sounds of the ticking of a clock. 
Just the rising and falling of the sun.
And our own sense of forever. 
But our forever isn’t always.

Deserves MORE than 5 Stars☆☆☆☆☆!!!

More Than Forever is book 4 in the More Series and it just keeps getting better!! Like all the rest of the books by Jay McLean I seriously devoured this book in one sitting!  MTF is simply fanfreakingtastic, amazeballs, utterly delicious and an AHHHMAZING read, but we all knew it would be right?  LOVE THIS SERIES!

After reading More Than This with Jake and Mikaya, More Than Her and More Than Him which were Logan and Amanda’s books, I can honestly say I was MORE than Ready to read Cam and Lucy’s story.   You met them throughout the first three More Books and you couldn’t help but want to know “More”.

We all remember drunk Lucy, but this book oh my gawd, this book shows you who Lucy really is.  Lucy doesn’t have it easy and my does this girl have A LOT of responsibilities that someone who is 15 just shouldn’t have.

“If heartbreak had a sound, it would be her sob.” 

She is sad and “alone” in a sense.  A girl who refused to admit she needed some help with some things, always using the famous “Im Fine” line, but Cam saw it and was relentless until she let him in.  Once he was there, that is where he intended to stay. Cam is Lucy’s Savior so to speak, when Lucy falls Cam is right there to pick her up.

You go through Cam and Lucy’s entire journey and I LOVE the other characters come in here and there because honestly in those scenes it takes you back to their books, all which were simply amazing!  I love the banter that goes on between the entire group and it continues in this book!  Prepare for the rollercoaster ride of your life.  The ups and downs, twists and turns and that feeling you get just when you get ready to take that initial drop down the hill, you’re going to get it in this book.  The love all her characters have at such a young age just goes to show, love doesn’t care how old you are.  Once you find it, you find it.  This book will have you laughing, your heart racing and in complete tears.  You will feel EVERY single ounce of emotion that Lucy and Cam feel in this book.

“He made my impossible, possible. And he had absolutely no idea he was doing it.” 

Jay’s writing is simple but is not lacking one single thing.  Like all her other books, the writing flows effortlessly.  She has the perfect balance in this series and makes sure you want to continue flipping through the pages.  I absolutely adore this entire series!!   I would read it again and again in a heartbeat!  Well done Jay and Congratulations on another success!!

Mom says that there’s absolutely no pain worse than labor.
For sixteen hours, so she says, she went through absolute hell. She jokes that
sometimes she wonders if it was worth it. I call bullshit. I say that nothing,
absolutely nothing, can feel worse than being hit in the junk with a baseball
bat. Lincoln’s eyes are huge as he grimaces. “I’m so sorry, Cam.”
I’m folded over myself, too preoccupied with the ache below
my stomach. Sometimes, there’s a delay with the pain. But not this time. This
time it was instant. I try to speak, but nothing comes out. He looks like he
wants to cry and I want to assure him that it’s all good—but I can’t. Liam,
Lincoln’s twin brother, is laughing. The little punk. I’ll be sure to make him
do extra shit next practice. “Cam, are you okay?”
I try to straighten, but it just makes the pain worse.
“Yeah, bud. I just gotta let it settle.”
“I swear I didn’t see you behind me.” There’s panic clear in
his voice and for a second I want to tell myself to suck it up and quit being a
little bitch, but I can’t do that either. The pain’s too overwhelming. Liam’s
still laughing his ass off. My eyes narrow at him and Lincoln must notice,
because he turns to his brother and pushes him hard enough that he falls to the
ground. That makes Liam stop. He gets up and dusts the dirt of his uniform. “We
should go, Linc, we’re the last ones here.”
Lincoln looks around. So do I. Liam’s right, everyone’s
“I’m just gonna help Cam pack up,” Lincoln replies, picking
up the team equipment bag and chucking in the helmets and bats sitting by my
feet. He looks up at me again, and I can see how sorry he really is.
Standing to full height, I do my best to ignore the pain.
“It’s okay, Linc. Seriously, it’s passed now.” It hasn’t, but he doesn’t need
to know that. He finishes packing anyway and hands me the bag, it’s bigger than
he is.
I take it from his hands and look around again. “Your mom or
dad late to pick you up?”
“Nah,” Liam says, the laughter and amusement now gone.
“Lucy’s here.”
“Our sister,” Lincoln explains.
They both turn to the bleachers and so do I. A lone girl
sits at the bottom bench. Something flat, black and rectangular in her hand,
kinda like a tablet, I guess. Her foot’s rocking a stroller back and forth. It
strikes me as strange, because the girl looks familiar. She’s in my class, I
think. She’s a freshman and she has a baby? Stuff like that doesn’t happen in
our town and if it did, I’d know. Everyone would know.
“Lucy!” Liam shouts.
She doesn’t look up.
“Lucy!” Lincoln this time.
She still doesn’t look up, but her foot continues to rock
the stroller.
“Luce!” Liam yells again.
My eyes narrow before looking down at the boys. “Is your
sister…uh…hearing impaired?”
They both let out simultaneous snorts. “No,” Lincoln
answers, pulling his cap further down his head and looking up at me. His eyes
roll as he says, “She’s just reading.”


Other Books in the More Series

More Than This, #1


In one night my fairytale ended. Or it may have begun. This is my story of friendship and love, heartbreak and desire, and the strength to show weakness.

One night I met a girl. A sad and broken girl, but one more beautiful than any other. She laughed through her sadness, while I loved through her heartbreak. 
*This is our story of a maybe ever after.* 
He was right. It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years. 
I couldn’t undo what had been done. I couldn’t change the future. 
I couldn’t even predict it. 
It was one night.
One night when everything changed.
It was so much more than just the betrayal.
It was the Tragedy.
The Deaths.
The Murders.
But it was also that feeling.
The feeling of falling.

More Than Her, #2

For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction.” For every choice you make there are rewards, or there are consequences. It was my choice to walk away the first time. And my choice to chase her the second. But sometimes you don’t get a choice, and all you get are the consequences.” “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Unless that someone is Logan Matthews. Because loving him didn’t give me the strength to walk away. It didn’t give me the courage to fight for him. And when it was over, all it gave me was a broken heart.


More Than Him, #3

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.” – Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we’re back.
And we’re fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.
