Not for under eighteen or the faint of heart...
I LOVED this book. I didn't realize at the beginning how sexual it was, but still loved it nonetheless. Which they would have picked a different female reader...her voice isn't right for this.

The Worst Book I've Had the Displeasure of Reading
What disappointed you about More Than This?
I was expecting a fun, sexy romance and instead I got a bizarre fever dream that pretended to be fun and sexy and instead came off as deeply, deeply troubling, vain, childish, poorly written, with all-around awful and unlikable characters that ended up being a metaphorical dumpster fire of clichés, bad writing, mediocre performances, and unrealistic plot points that were unintentionally hilarious. I'd be tempted to call this a "so bad it's good" book because I DID laugh at it so much, but it would be too painful to call anything about it "good" even in the ironic sense of the word.
What could Jay McLean have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I know this isn't constructive, but basically everything. If I were writing this book, I'd read it, realize it was a garbage concept packed with clichés, slut shaming, characters so jealous their skin would be green if they were real (which, come on, they aren't real, they barely act like actual human beings), and that, even on the basest level of intending for it to be a romance and realizing not a since line or really even a single WORD in this book is romantic, sexy, cute, etc...I'd realize that, and I'd throw out the concept. I'd start over. I'd realize this book isn't salvageable and just scrap it because it would actually be pretty close to being a crime to call this a book and sell this to people for real life money.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeremy York and Allison Lynnewood ?
I wouldn't subject ANY of my favorite narrators to this trash heap. Jeremy York and Allison Lynnewood were fine, but if I ever run into a book where they're narrating, I might have war flashbacks to this book so they're definitely off the table for The Best Narrators I Listened to in 2018.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from More Than This?
As stated above, I'd cut all of it. It's trash. It's utter trash.
Any additional comments?
It baffles me that this book has an average of 4.5 on here and a 4.14 on Goodreads. It's books like these with ratings like that which make me wonder why god has forsaken us.

Loved this book
I really liked this book story was girly but a little risky
There was 2 readers which made it more realistic when it was talking from the male and female point of view wasn’t a fan of the American assents though
