What happens when a normally reserved billionaire tries to be a regular guy and discovers he has a wild side? Grant Barrington is a quiet hero who is about to flex his alpha billionaire muscle.

Viviana Sutton is living in Boston after being swindled by her ex-boyfriend. She’s done with relationships and isn’t looking for forever. Giving in to one naughty, incredibly hot romp with a financially challenged stranger actually makes her feel better until she takes a pregnancy test.

To help his family, he’ll need to be the man she makes him feel like he can be.

For the sake of her baby, she’ll give him a chance to prove what they had was more than sex—and he’s more than just a regular guy.

I’ll tell you right now that I am a pretty big Ruth Cardello fan. I love her writing style with just the right amount of sex and cheese, which I love. And Grant and Viviana together in More Than Words, were delightful.

If you’re not familiar with The Barrington family, I won’t give away spoilers but I will say that one of their siblings, a twin, died at birth and there’s a big ol’ mystery surrounding it. Grant, the staid, logical financial wizard is the perfect person to pursue the investigation further because he’s not as emotional as the rest of the family.

But Grant has a problem, you see. He’s incredibly rich and intelligent which means his “normal people” people skills are seriously lacking. So he’s tasked with going out and trying to interact with regular people so that people will speak to him during his investigation, which he fails at until he catches the eye of Viviana out for a run with her friend. They definitely have an adorable meet-cute that well, let’s just say it’s more than successful.

Viviana is at a crossroads in her life. She left her small hometown because she wanted to be more, to be seen as more by her family. But as is often the case, the big city wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. But it turns out what happens in the city sets the stage for some of the most important decisions she will have to make.

These two definitely fall into the ‘opposites attract’ category but somehow, they worked. The one thing that they shared, throughout More Than Words, though it didn’t seem like they realized it, was that they were both searching for the real version of themselves. Grant was clueless because he was happy with his life, with who he was as a man and his place in society. But with Viviana he realized that that wasn’t all he was, and watching them both find themselves—hokey as that may be—was a fun ride.

I love it when the drama it’s melodramatic and, yeah, the whole dead baby brother thing is kind of melodramatic, we don’t deal with all the messy parts of it so it was easy to deal with. I loved watching Grant interact with her family, especially her crazy overgrown kids known as her brothers. Homemade booze, childhood tales and family dinner kept me smiling, laughing and sometimes even cringing.

I wished this book was a little longer but the story flowed and I don’t think anything important was left out.

Now though I am eager to see what happens next with the rest of this big, crazy family.
