About MOORE THAN A FEELING:
“Holly and Aiden broke up? Seriously? No way. Not those two.”
No, not only dumped.
Blindsided and dumped.
I thought that Aiden McManus was my forever, my soulmate,
That was until he told me he was still in love with his ex.
I didn’t want to believe him.
So, I convinced myself that our break-up was because of his upcoming deployment,
and not because he didn’t love me.
Believing that, helped me get through those first months.
But after a while, I realized I just might be lying to myself.
And it was time to move on…
So, I moved on. Or tried to move on, anyway.
But that didn’t work out so well for me, either.
And it practically got me disowned from my family.
After that, I finally started to get my life back together,
I had everything back under control…
…Or so I thought.
Until I found out Aiden was back
And now he’s everywhere I turn,
Still pushing me away,
telling me he doesn’t want me.
But every time he calls me Angel or reaches out to touch my cheek,
I know what he’s not admitting to himself –
He still loves me.
And I’m going to prove it to him.
Dawn’s 5 Blush Review
Moore Than A Feeling by Julie Richman was FANTASTIC. I feel like I just spent a few days with some of my very old and dear friends. This book was not just about Holly and Aidan. It was a Moore family book. Catching up with ALL of them made my heart swell. Damn I missed these people. Julie didn’t miss a beat with this book. It picked up right where the last one ended. It had all the insurmountable love and laugh out loud humor we are used to from the previous books. The one liners had me in stitches and the tender moments had me in tears!! Julie Richman knows how to do realistic and refreshing dialogue. You honestly forget that these people are just characters. SO REAL!
I was quick to see that Holly and Aidan had a transcendent love like Schooner and Mia. Time nor distance could not diminish what they felt for one another. The heart wants what it wants no matter what the brain tells us…. Our chivalrous solider, Aiden, was going to be deployed and didn’t want the love of his life waiting for him for fear he would not come back the same, and he would inevitably ruin her life. By breaking up with her, he absolutely BROKE her and himself… They say time heals old wounds, but not in this case! When Aiden and Holly see each other again, everything resurfaced especially their feelings but is it too late? OMG! I was choked up throughout. I felt the intensity of their love and the depth of their despair. Poor Aiden has been through so much but so has Holly… She may not have gone to war physically but mentally she is wrecked. Their journey back to one another would take patience, compassionate and understanding. Could they make it back to one another or are they too damaged? I was on pins and needles!
I freaking loved Moore Than A Feeling. This book has everything a reader could ask for… It’s the type of book that you can not put down. Bravo to Julie Richman for continuously giving us magic with The Moores! I pray she keeps giving us more…
The Moore Series is one of my absolute favorites!!
BY the way, kudos to Julie for reminding us just how much our service men and women sacrifice to keep our country safe!!!

“Did you hear back from Holly?”
Picking up his phone from the car’s center console and glancing at the screen, Schooner shook his head. He had left her a voice message and a text to let her know what was going on and that he and Mia were on their way back into the city and staying at the loft for the night.
“No. She must be out or have her phone turned off. Maybe she’s at the movies with some friends,” he conjectured.
Heartbroken, Holly had decided not to spend the summer at the beach house on Fire Island with the family, knowing that seeing her ex-boyfriend, even for one more day, in the small, beach enclave where they lived and worked, would be far too painful. Instead, she moved back into the city, where she was very fortunate, that late in spring, to be able to pick up a summer gig at NYU, teaching two classes of English as a Second Language.
Aiden McManus, the charismatic and handsome manager of Maguire’s Restaurant on Fire Island had captured Holly’s heart, lock, stock and barrel, several summers before. A Long Island boy from a working-class family, Aiden helped pay for his community college education in Hotel and Hospitality Management through enlisting in the New York Army National Guard.
Holly’s previous love interests had all come from backgrounds similar to her own, well-educated at Ivy League schools with families of means. But Aiden was different, salt of the Earth and willing to get his hands dirty, Holly had never met anyone his age who was already a man. Aiden McManus definitely wasn’t a boy, and that was the sexiest thing Holly Moore had ever encountered. There was no going back to boys after meeting Aiden McManus.
Prior to meeting, neither Aiden nor Holly would have ever seen themselves with the other, yet together they were a mutual adoration society. Holly enamored with this handsome, street-smart man’s man and Aiden overwhelmed that this beautiful and brilliant California golden girl would even give him a second glance, nonetheless fall in love with him. And when she fell in love with the dark-haired, dark hazel-eyed Irishman, Holly fell hard, with her entire heart, her feelings deeper and more complex than she’d ever known.
Their break-up blindsided and devastated her. Coming just a month before Aiden’s reserve deployment to Afghanistan, his harsh words tattered her heart, literally slamming her to her knees.
“Don’t bother waiting for me, Holly. This is the perfect natural-ending point for us. We’re just too different. So, please don’t kid yourself and wait.”
“You’re just saying this in case something happens. You’re trying to protect me, Aiden,” countered Holly.
Shaking his head, his eyes never leaving hers as he delivered the killing blow, “I’m sure that makes it easier for you to handle, but the truth of the matter is, I’ve been wanting to end things for a while. We’re really different. And I’m happier with a woman who’s more like me. I’ve been thinking a lot about my old girlfriend, Janine, and I’d like to see if we can work things out.”
Holly wasn’t the only one shocked by Aiden’s scathing declaration. Everyone who knew the couple couldn’t believe not only that they had broken up, but how and why or that Aiden would ever treat Holly with such cruelty.
“I don’t understand,” she cried to her father and stepmother. “How could I be so blind to miss the signs?” She glanced from Schooner to Mia, her tear-stained eyes positively devastated. But neither had an answer for her, because they were as shocked as she was at the sudden one-hundred-eighty-degree turn in Aiden’s feelings and intentions. It just didn’t add up. There had been no signs.
