Title: More Than Anything (More Than Anything #1) Author Name & Publisher: T.T. Kove (Less Than Three Press) Publication Date & Length: September 24, 2014 - 380 pgs
Arriving home after work one evening, Jørgen sees a young man who looks adrift and out of place—and who promptly has a seizure on the sidewalk. Jørgen takes care of him until the seizure passes and then, not knowing who to contact, takes care of him for the night. After giving the kid, Geir, a ride home the next morning, he expects that to be the end of it.
He doesn't expect Geir to be a student at the vocational school where Jørgen works as an electrician. He definitely does not expect to be drawn to Geir time and again, to want things that will never be possible for two people with more obstacles between them than can ever be overcome.
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I really enjoyed it even though I had some issues with it. This book is set in Norway and apparently the laws there are very different from the US. Thinking about some of those laws made me very uncomfortable. Which is why my rating is only 3.75 stars.
Jorgen seemed much older than 22 and Geir also appeared older than 16 (almost 17). But it became apparent right away why, especially with Jorgen. He dealt with a cycle of abuse no one should have to endear. Geir was an epileptic and dealt with abuse at school and with a father that was away for much of the time. The author was able to bring you into their pain and that isn’t easy to do when dealing with abuse.
I loved how the author brought Jorgen and Geir together. They issues that they dealt with was enough to break your heart. Even though MC’s went through some very difficult situations yet together they were able to overcome their issues and have their HEA.
I liked this book but I did not love it... It was so descriptive in parts that it was just way to much. I liked Jorgan and Geir as a couple when they finally get to be together. But for awhile there I felt Geir was way too immature to deal with a relationship like this and at 70% of the book it was confirmed for me. So I did like the premise of the story and the main couple Jorgan and Geir. I just felt it was way to descriptive and some of it just dragged on in parts for me.
