My Review:


I received this book (an ARC) from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I really, really liked this book! I would absolutely recommend it to my fellow readers...especially those who are fans of the New Adult/Young Adult Contemporary Romance genre. I give “More Than You Know” 4.5 Stars out of 5, and I would definitely read more of Alexandria Rhode’s books. 

What a ride! I enjoyed everything about this book, from the beginning to the end. Alexandria Rhodes pulled me in with her magnificent characters, and kept me in with her great story-telling skills. The plot and conflict were amazing. I love when I am reading a book, and every time I start to get comfortable with the story...BAM!!! I love being like, “Whoa, that was a surprise! No way did I see that coming!” I can honestly say that I was surprised like this in “More Than You Know.”

I don’t want to give anything away about this book, so you should definitely check out the synopsis if you want to really know what it is about. But, I will briefly say that Bryn is going through a very hard time, the hardest time of her life, and right when she needs a friend and someone to talk to...the only people left who she really cares about just left. No explanations, at all. Bryn ends up going off on her own to try and start over.  She wants to have a new life to help her live through all the pain and confusion. When circumstances cause her to move back to her home, Bryn will be forced to deal with her past, and hopefully gain some answers that she was always looking for.

I liked Bryn from the start. This poor young girl has been through so much heart break, betrayal, and drama. Everything bad was just happening to her one after another. I just wanted to make everything all better for her, and I thought she deserved to be happy. As for Tyler, I felt for him even in the beginning. I could tell that he cared for Bryn so much, and right at that point I knew they were meant for each other. Even if it was going to be a fight to get to the point of being together.

So like I said, I would definitely recommend this book. “More Than You Know” by Alexandria Rhodes is the perfect story for someone looking for a NA Romance laced with pain, confusion, betrayal, forgiveness, angst, and true love. Make sure you read this book to follow Bryn and Tyler’s story and see everything that unfolds between the two of them - good and bad.
