From the bestselling author of Bright Side and Gus Love. Love is strange. It comes out of nowhere. There’s no logic to it. It’s not methodical. It’s not scientific. It’s pure emotion and passion. And emotion and passion can be dangerous because they fuel love…and hate.

I’m now a reluctant connoisseur of both—an expert through immersion. I know them intimately.

When I fell in love with Miranda, it was swift and blind. She was the person I’d elevated to mythical status in my head, in my dreams.

Here’s the thing about dreams, they’re smoke.

They’re spun as thoughts until they become something we think we want. Something we think we need.

That was Miranda. She was smoke.

I thought I wanted her. I thought I needed her.

Over time reality crept in and slowly dissected and disemboweled my dreams like a predator, leaving behind a rotting carcass.

Reality can be a fierce bitch.

So can Miranda.

And I can be a fool...

who believes in dreams.

And people.

And love.

Note from the author: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for mature audiences only.

I started reading So Much More yesterday evening and before I knew it the sun was rising. I simply had to finish it so I got zero sleep. And you know what? It’s worth the yawns, puffy eyes, and dark circles I’m suffering today because once again Kim Holden has slain me with a fascinating story that has all the feels and then some.

I don’t want to talk about the plot or even the relationship between the characters because I feel the book is best enjoyed through blind submersion. I will say that Kim Holden has crafted an interesting and diverse group of characters and assembled them in complex plot that deeply affected me on many levels.

“I didn’t know people could hug your soul with their soul.”

My heart ached for Seamus who is vulnerable, wounded yet strong, and noble. Faith is a positive-thinking free spirit who is so easy to adore and admire. She is insightful beyond her years. Her free hugs are infectious, and her innate goodness is touching.

“Every day when I wake up, I remind myself that present is possibility, and the past is a lesson.”

Contrast that with Miranda, who I’m pretty sure is the Anti-Christ. I don’t think I’ve ever loathed a character more, and, boy, did I love to hate her and her ruthless calculations.

“My vagina is a weapon in my arsenal, and any stiff cock can be defeated by it. Weakened. Vanquished. It’s a tool to concur.”

On an angst scale from one to ten, this book is about a fifteen, which is right up my alley when done with such a skillful hand. You will find a dose of humor here and there to help ease the tension, along with many inspiring moments that will tug on your heartstrings.

Kim Holden is an astonishing storyteller who breathes emotion, discernment, and poetry onto every page. So Much More is an incredibly powerful story about selfless love, discovery, resilience, and forgiveness. Do yourself a favor and read this amazing book.
