More Than Words by Jill Santopolo

We interrupt your regularly seen thrilling book reviews for a romance read because…February. I needed a good switch-up from my usual, and this was just calling my name!

Thank you Putnam Books for my free copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis from Goodreads: Nina Gregory has always been a good daughter, a good girlfriend. Raised by her father, owner of New York City’s glamorous Gregory Hotels, after her mother’s death, Nina was taught that family, reputation, and legacy are what matter most. And her boyfriend Tim, thoughtful, kind, and honest, not to mention her best friend since childhood, feels the same. But after Nina’s father passes away, she learns he may not have practiced what he preached. As her world falls apart, Nina begins to question everything she thought she knew and to see the men in her life–her father, her boyfriend, and unexpectedly, her handsome and attentive boss, Rafael–in a new light. Soon Nina finds herself caught between the world she knows and loves, and a passion that could upend everything. More than Words is a heartbreaking and romantic novel about grief, loss, love, and self-discovery, and how we choose which life we are meant to live.

I love romance stories where the girl has to fight over choosing between men. Call me cliche, but I dig it. Without having read Jill’s previous book (I know, I’m crazy to even admit it), this wasn’t a story that completely captivated me. It was a good escape from the ordinary. I thought it was heartfelt, romantic, and endearing. Really, a must-read for those February lovers out there. Nina’s life changes and decisions are admirable and heartwarming to read about. I could see myself reading this book again.

4/5 Stars
