BOOK REVIEW : More than her by Jay Mc Lean

The story of Logan and Amanda. It all started with one date that dragged on to a series of events. It’s a story of how one date, one night and one guy can make Amanda fall in love completely and leave behind his long time boyfriend Tyson. After leaving behind Tyson, with the purest of heart filled with hope and love for Logan, she was devastated upon not hearing from Logan the next day, or the next day, or the next week, or the next months.

Logan on their first date – Amanda didn’t want to go at first.

Logan:                   7 days to go.

Amanda:              Really, asshole? A count down?

Logan:                   6 days to go. I bet you can’t wait to see me.

Amanda:              I’m already regretting this.

Logan:                   5 days to go. OMG! What am I going to wear?

Amanda:              I thought I told you not to contact me for a week.

Logan:                   4 days to go. Seriously though, what do you want to do?

Amanda:              Not go on a date with you?

Logan:                   3 days to go. I’m getting pretty fucking excited to see you.

Amanda:              Shut up.

Logan:                   2 days to go. Just thought I’d remind you in case you had forgotten.

Amanda:              Who is this?

Logan:                   1 day to go. I’ll call you tomorrow.

Amanda:              I’ll be busy.

Logan and his way of saying the three words:

‘’I know that you’ve said those words before. I get that you’ve been in love with someone else, and that’s fine. But I haven’t. Not before you. I can’t give you much or anything at all. But when I say those words to you, it won’t be just words – it will be me giving you something that means something. And you deserve to know that, to feel that. SO please, let me be the first to say it – because I need to be able to at least give you that – and when I do – those three words will be yours, forever. And so will I’’.

You know what my favorite part of the day is? It’s those few seconds in the morning, when my mind wakes up but my body hasn’t, and I feel you in my arms. And I know that when I open my eyes, it’s you that I get to see.

Logan’s Dad:      She makes you happy, son?

Logan:                   No. She makes me whole.

Amanda:              You kiss my wrist – you do that a lot. Why?

Logan:                   I don’t know. It’s like my lips – on your pulse. I can feel your heart beating and know that you’re here. I guess sometimes I find it hard to believe that you’re real – and that you’re mine.

Logan:                   When she wasn’t around, I missed the shit out of her. When she was around, I didn’t want to leave her side, if you called me a pussy right now, I’d tell you it was valid.

Logan:                   It’s official. She has my balls and she’s not giving it them back. Ever.
