More Than Protect You by Shayla Black

More Than Protect You by Shayla Black

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…

Can I keep the gorgeous, gun-shy single mother safe—and prove I’m the man for her?

I’m Tanner Kirk—Certified firearms instructor and mixed martial arts enthusiast. When I filed for divorce at the end of an empty marriage, all I wanted was a vacation in paradise, not another woman in my life. But how can I possibly say no to Amanda Lund, a young single mom desperate to learn self-defense? Or refuse the banked desire on the guarded beauty’s face?

I can’t.

So I seduce Mandy until we’re burning up the sheets… and soon find my heart entangled with her bruised and battered one. But when a nemesis from her past tries to destroy our future by unearthing my secret, will she understand and forgive me—or give up on us forever?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This novella fits in the More Than series and is a very passionate, and yet sweet story, with a rather sinister element. I have loved the whole series and would definitely recommend that you begin at the beginning if you have the patience. If not, then you will find out some elements out of order, but I can assure you the romances are all unique with a familial link running through them.

Here we meet Amanda, a childhood friend of Harlow, who fundamentally was groomed by Harlow’s father, and taken on as he executive assistant straight from college. As soon as she fell pregnant, he didn’t want to know, and worse, his company collapsed due to his illegal actions, forcing her into the spotlight and into the attention of those who would wish her harm. She now finds herself in Maui with her baby, when she is attacked.

Tanner, doing a favour for a friend, comes to the rescue – but is instantly attracted to Mandy, possibly irrevocably, which adds to the complexity of her situation. As we get to meet the rest of the clan who want to support their baby brother, we can catch up with all the previous couples too.

Inevitably in a novella the love moves fast, but it fits with the situation and the people, so I was ‘more than’ happy to go with the very enjoyable flow.

Tanner is seemingly trying to figure out his next move in life. He's in paradise to figure out whether he wants to open a new business or find something else to do with his life. When a friend calls and asks for a favor, Tanner is hard pressed to turn him down for two reasons: one, he needs the money and two, he sees her.

Amanda is running. After someone breaks in to where she is staying, she can't help but feel unsafe and like she's putting everyone who knows her in jeopardy. She has to be able to protect her son and herself, but also wants to have a relationship with her newfound family. It's quite the dilemma. With her past haunting her and her future uncertain, can she truly trust Tanner?

When Amanda and Tanner truly meet for the first time, both are instantly attracted to the other. And while it's kind of an insta-love situation, it didn't necessarily feel that way. This story fits very well into the series and I really enjoyed watching Amanda and Tanner navigate their feelings and the person or people who are after Amanda.

You'll enjoy this couple as much as the others and you get to see the other couples briefly as well! I can't wait for more books!
