Shannyn Schroeder’s More Than This is a fun romantic comedy. This story has a nice blend of romance, comedy and real emotion. I felt Ms. Schroeder gives her readers a real look at what life can be like for a single woman in need of a man. It kills me how long it took Quinn to see the sweetie standing in front of her. Ryan is trying his best to get her to take him seriously but all she can see are the problems that might happen. More Than This is a sweet romance that has some swoon-worthy moments.
