✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ More Than I Could by Adriana Locke

 

More than I Could
By: Adriana Locke
Narrated by: Maxine Mitchell & Tor Thom

From USA Today best-selling author Adriana Locke comes a grumpy, blue-collar single dad that falls hard for his new nanny. This small-town romance is a standalone novel with tons of heat and even more heart.

This grumpy single dad falls hard for the nanny.

Chase Marshall is many things:

  • An attentive single dad.
  • Jaw-droppingly gorgeous.
  • My employer for the next 30 days.

He’s also the bane of my existence.

He swears I’m a never-ending headache—the most infuriating woman he’s ever met.

If I’m so irritating, then what’s up with the lingering looks when he thinks I’m not watching?

The seemingly innocent touches while making breakfast?

The smirk that graces his kissable lips after one of our verbal spars after his daughter has gone to bed?

One minute he’s coming to my rescue. The next second he’s complaining about how I fold his work shirts. Fine. Fold them yourself.

It turns out that the only time I don’t get under Chase’s skin is when I’m under him.

And that’s where things get complicated.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Adriana Locke's More Than I Could has some of my favorite tropes, plus it's funny, it's sweet, and it's sexy. Seriously, I could spend a lot more time in this world. I don't know if there are any plans for some of the secondary characters, but Chase's siblings really need their own HEAs (Hint, Hint). As vibrant as they are, our romantic couple really stands out. Chase is the redeemable grump, which is one of my favorites in romance, and Megan has the sass to keep him on his toes. Of course, his 14-year-old daughter, Kennedy, does a pretty good job of that on her own. I love that these three feel like family from the start. Chase and Megan have terrific chemistry, even as they banter and clash in the beginning. Megan and Kennedy bond probably a little faster than most kids that age would bond with a nanny, but it works and feels natural. Now, I'm probably hitting a little too close to spoiler territory, so I'll keep it as vague as I can. I just have to comment on this - I'm an avid reader and listener, so I've taken in a fair amount of proposal scenes. Hands down, this book has one of the best I've had the pleasure of hearing (audiobook). It's not all romance-y or full of pretty words, but it's absolutely perfect for Chase and Megan. I'll stop there and let you get the details on your own. Obviously, I highly recommend More Than I Could. I listened to the audiobook, but I'm sure however you decide to take it in, you won't be sorry.
As I mentioned, I listened to this one, and Maxine Mitchell and Tor Thom do such a great job with the narration. Adriana Locke couldn't have chosen any better than these two. Maxine Mitchell is superb, as always. I can't recall ever being disappointed by her performance, and that holds true with her performance as Megan. Tor Thom is relatively new to me, but I like him more and more every time I hear him. His voice is exactly what I would expect Chase to sound like. Whether it's growly or sweet or sexy, he's got it covered, and I enjoyed every single minute of this audiobook.
