More Than Fine is the follow-up to More Than The Game in the Becoming an Evans series. You can read my review of the first book here!
Trish Biltman has a rather unfortunate past. One that sent her running from her hometown with her two children, and straight to New Jersey where she befriended Beth Evans. The Evans family has been protecting her since she left her husband, and she has done her best to keep herself out of the limelight. Until a few snapshots from the wedding leak and her husband finally knows where she is. An unfortunate twist of fate sends her back on the run and on the mend, and straight into Grant Evans’ life. And home. After a rather painful divorce, he doubts that he can ever feel that way again. Until he realizes that the house he had been living in has started to feel more like a home. Can two broken people make each other whole?
This felt like an incredibly stunning follow-up to the first book. My earlier praise about likable male MCs rings true here. He felt authentic. Perfectly imperfect, and even I found myself swooning for the gruff, probably too-direct Grant. I also adored Trish. She was strong in a way that I don’t think a lot of people recognize. It was refreshing to see what felt to be an incredibly realistic depiction of a survivor. I further liked that there was a slow burn. Trust was earned. It felt like it was done with incredible respect and care to people who have survived that life, and that, to me, is a huge thing, well-deserving of recognition.
Like with the last review, I don’t have any major criticisms. The story was beautiful, the character development was breathtaking. The dialogue felt natural and easy. I will say that it got a bit hairy when all of the Evans brothers were in a scene together, but that’s always going to be an issue when you have many characters in one place. Overall, this was a beautiful book, and I’m so keen to see what Jenni Bara does next!
