“Holly and Aiden broke up? Seriously? No way. Not those two.”
No, not only dumped.
Blindsided and dumped.
I thought that Aiden McManus was my forever, my soulmate,
That was until he told me he was still in love with his ex.
I didn’t want to believe him.
So, I convinced myself that our break-up was because of his upcoming deployment,
and not because he didn’t love me.
Believing that, helped me get through those first months.
But after a while, I realized I just might be lying to myself.
And it was time to move on…
So, I moved on. Or tried to move on, anyway.
But that didn’t work out so well for me, either.
And it practically got me disowned from my family.
After that, I finally started to get my life back together,
I had everything back under control…
…Or so I thought.
Until I found out Aiden was back
And now he’s everywhere I turn,
Still pushing me away,
telling me he doesn’t want me.
But every time he calls me Angel or reaches out to touch my cheek,
I know what he’s not admitting to himself –
He still loves me.
And I’m going to prove it to him.

What had happened for Aiden to tell Holly he no longer wanted her in his life? Mia needed to know and slipped on some espadrilles to walk into town and give Mr. McManus a visit. And maybe a piece of her mind.
He was behind the bar, back to her, when she slipped onto her choice of empty worn, wooden barstools, their eyes meeting in the intricate antique mirror he faced.
“Mia,” he said to her reflection.
“Aiden,” she said to the back of his head.
“What took you so long?” he asked his ex-girlfriend’s stepmother.
Watching him pour bourbon, vermouth, and bitters into an ice-filled shaker, Mia remained silent as Aiden slid the Manhattan toward her. Without batting an eye, she picked up the martini glass and sipped from it, wondering if the Manhattan was symbolic in some way of her and her family, letting her know that they were the uppity city people.
Ignoring his question, Mia put the martini glass down on the bar and looked up, locking into Aiden’s dark hazel eyes. “You know I don’t believe for a single second that you don’t love her.”
“It is what it is.” He shrugged.
Taking another sip of her drink, Mia shifted on her barstool, her legs a little too short to find the right position. “I walked away from Schooner once. In my mind, I was doing the right thing. But I never got over him. He was like a ghost that followed me around and appeared in my darkest moments, making them even bleaker, because he wasn’t there, and I knew nothing of his life.” Sighing, she shook her head.
“Is this your way of telling me I’m going to regret this?” Aiden leaned on the bar casually.
He’s certainly got game, Mia thought. “You already do.”
“Mia, with all due respect, you don’t know what you are talking about.”
“I wish I didn’t, Aiden. But unfortunately, I do. You are not going to stop loving her any more than she is going to stop loving you. And we both know that. Just don’t wait too long, okay. You think you want her to move on. But you don’t. You don’t want to get home from whatever hellhole our government is going to send you to and come back here to see her with another man. Honestly, I can’t see you standing down as you watch some guy slinging his arm over her shoulder to let everyone here know that she’s now his.”
A muscle right above his jawline twitched. Mia had her verification. Without another word, she slipped from the barstool and exited the restaurant wishing she could give him some of her life experience and have him learn from her mistakes.
Mistake #1 – Do not walk away from the one you love. Be honest. Communicate. And try to work it out.
But Aiden McManus was stubborn as all hell, and Mia knew the heartache for everyone would escalate before things got better.
If things ever got better.
Fans of the series have been waiting for Holly’s story for 4 years and we finally have it in hand — just amazing!
Holly has found the man of her dreams but is blindsided when he breaks up with her right before his deployment overseas. Aiden thinks he’s doing the right thing by telling her he’s still in love with his ex-girlfriend, hoping that it will push her to move on. But all it does is send Holly into a tailspin and a year of wondering what happened to the man who said she was his everything.
Holly tries to move on, but when she finds out her new boyfriend has a past with her stepmom, things don’t go over too well. She spends the year avoiding the one place her family loves after finding out Aiden is back and he’s not the same.
Holly is torn between doing what Aiden wanted, to move on. Or fighting for the one man who will always have a hold of her heart, no matter what.
Moore than a Feeling was so full of emotions. We get a treat in seeing all of our favorite and not so favorite family members together for Thanksgiving. Full of laughter, love, pain, redemption, and hope – Moore than a Feeling is up there with one of my favorites from the series. (Book one still holds the top spot for me.)
If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it. It’s one of my all-time favorites and Julie A. Richman is a master storyteller. You can read Moore than a Feeling as a standalone, but to get the full background on some of my favorite people ever… Read the series!!
