Matthew, Luke, and Richard return in this third installment of the MORE series.

These three men have weathered a lot, and their love for one another is as strong as ever. Yet Matthew Stewart, the youngest of the threesome, can't help but feel like he's made one too many mistakes lately, both with his men and his future. His perfect life is starting to crumble around him. Haunted by a past he's never truly faced and struggling to find his place in the world, he sets his sights on a new dream job at a wildlife rehabilitation center. With more than just a great job on the line, he refuses to turn his back on someone in need. A favor morphs into danger as Matthew, Luke, and Richard face a week alone in the wilderness, looking for evidence of either an accident or a crime. With no hiking experience and armed strangers trying to hunt them down, these three men will learn to lean on each other more than ever. And in the process, they just might heal more than one old wound.

 

Book Review

“For you see, each day I love you more, today, more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.” ~ Rosemonde Gerard

Matthew, of ‘More Than Ever’ by Sloan Parker, is the youngest and most vulnerable of his family. Neither Richard nor Luke have had a carefree life, but they have had more time to face their circumstances and move beyond them. Matthew is feels that he is not deserving of the two magnificent, successful men he is with. He wants to feel like he has accomplished something, but instead of talking about his secret fear, he goes along with whatever they want, whether he wants it or not. Matthew’s silence and compliance come back to haunt him, breaking through at a critical part in their lovemaking, giving Luke and, especially Richard, pause; they wonder how many other times Matthew has kept silent, trying to please them, when he should have spoken up.

Even though Matthew has gone to school to learn how to be a veterinary technician, he is having a difficult time finding a job. He has always had feelings of insecurity and of being abandoned, particularly since his father left him and his mother. Since Matthew has never faced the situation, it has grown to monumental proportions. He loves Richard and Luke, but the incident of him not being honest in bed has put a huge dent in their love life. They are almost afraid to touch him for fear of doing something he does not want. Matthew feels like he has ruined the intimacy between the three of them and it will never be like it was before.

Matthew has always been my favorite character in the ‘More’ series. Although Luke and Richard have never deliberately done anything to make Matthew feel inferior in any way, he has always felt like he is not “good enough” to be with these two strong, successful men. Being so much younger than his partners, I have to admit that they have been protective of him, but they did it out of love, not because they felt he was inferior. It was good to see him get beyond the ghosts that have haunted him and take his rightful place as an equal partner for Richard and Luke.  Thanks, Sloan, for an awesome addition to the ‘More’ series.
