Harder Than Words is a sweet and sexy combination of a best friends becoming more and a second chance at love story. Years ago Meghan and Luc were the best of friends. Luc wanted more, but Meghan was marrying someone else. Rather than tell her how he felt, Luc leaves town. Years later Meghan is divorced and back in town. Luc is too and he still has feelings for her. Meghan is broken because of all that her ex put her through, but Luc still sees her. One of the things I loved about this story is that it really shows the power of words and those who speak them, but even more so about those words we take in and those we let go. Meghan's husband tore her down with words, but Luc built her up and helped her heal with them. And add to that the fact that the man could naughty talk like nobody's business. Holy hell Luc definitely has a way with words. At the same time he was so patient for Meghan to give him the words he so longed to hear. I really loved their story.
I give Harder Than Words 5 hearts!
About the Book
Meghan Montgomery-Warren thought she knew what love was when she'd married young and had two children. After years of being emotionally beaten down, her husband has finally left her and now she's forced to find her way once again. Somehow she needs to find the person she used to be and figure that the strength she'd thought she'd lost was always there.
Luc Dodd left Denver and his best friend Meghan when he was forced to watch her walk down the aisle with another man. He might have only been her best friend, but he held his true emotions close to the vest. Now he's back in town and in Meghan's life. Only he needs to decide if that's enough for him...and her.
Their journey from friends to lovers is a slow burn of seduction and pain. When Meghan's past comes back to haunt them both, the two of them will have to stand closer together or be torn apart by their own misgivings forever.
About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she'd be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn't until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.
Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn't planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
