Review:
I have received this book as part of a book tour in exchange of an honest review.
After surviving a tragic car accident Bryn that took her father’s life and being left by her boyfriend who suspiciously leaves town after the accident, Bryn decides to move to New York for college.
Four years later she returns to town and is forced to deal with her past and find answers to questions left unanswered.
Bryn is the main character and she’s a good protagonist. I couldn’t always understand her and her options, though. I wanted her to be more determined and demand the answers she needed.
Tyler is a good characters as well, with his own problems and learning to deal with his own issues.
Plot wise, More Than You Know is a very interesting book with a good twist. Some hints are given as the story develops and I enjoyed that. I liked trying to find out exactly what was going on and what exactly was the secret being kept.
All in all, More Than You Know is an interesting story with good characters and an even better plot twist.
If you are a fan of New Adult Romance, I think you might enjoy this book.

Rating:  Somewhere Between Readable and Worth Your Time (3 ½  Stars)
