I’m Maxon Reed—real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success—my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.

College senior Keeley Kent is broke enough to accept a pretty penny while I teach her to be Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine—but I’m about to find out.

Shayla Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than fifty novels. For over fifteen years, she’s written contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances via traditional, independent, foreign, and audio publishers. Her books have sold millions of copies and been published in a dozen languages.

Raised an only child, Shayla occupied herself with lots of daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and realized that she could have a career publishing the stories spinning in her imagination. Though she graduated with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America to pay the bills, her heart has always been with her characters. She’s thrilled that she’s been living her dream as a full-time author for the past seven years.

Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her teenage daughter, and a very spoiled cat. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.

Title: More Than Want You
Author: Shayla Black


I can't remember the last time i read a book that had warm fuzzies going all over my body from connecting with the characters as i did. The first in her new series from Shayla Black, More Than Want You made me think of a mix of 'She's All That' (the movie) and another that i can't remember (bad me for that one, but i know i've seen it more times than i can count) about a boy and a girl coming up with a plan to trick another person for their own gain... oh wait!!! I remember the movie!! It's What's Your Number. BUT, and there is a big but, Shayla Black makes it even better by throwing the spin that i'm not sure i could have imagined. Instead of the girl doing it for all the wrong reasons, she does it for the right ones. To bring a family back together after an event tore them apart and destroyed any chances of being able to reconcile.


Maxon Reed doesn't apologize for the way that he is. He's an a--hole, driven and mostly result driven to get the biggest payout, and when he meets Keely Kent when she sings at the bar that he was drinking with his coworkers, he knew right then that he had the perfect payback to derail his brother. Ask her to seduce him. Only Keely has other ideas, especially when she finds out what's happening, she can't help but want to bring them together and put the past where it belongs - in the past. I liked this book, i truly did. It had the good feelings that i love getting when i read, it had the angsty drama that i couldn't help crave, but most of all, it was new from what i've come to read from Shayla Black, something that i haven't had a chance to read from her before. Knowing that there is another book in this series, especially Griff's story is making me more excited (than i'm sure i should be) because let's face it, i need to see the other brother crumble as much as Maxon did.
