Book Review Of “More Than Words” By Jill Santopolo @PutnamBooks @JillSantopolo

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Light We Lostcomes a tender and moving new novel about a woman at a crossroads after the death of her father, and caught between the love of two men.

Nina Gregory has always been a good daughter, a good girlfriend. Raised by her father, owner of New York City’s glamorous Gregory Hotels, after her mother’s death, Nina was taught that family, reputation, and legacy are what matter most. And her boyfriend Tim, thoughtful, kind, and honest, not to mention her best friend since childhood, feels the same. But after Nina’s father passes away, she learns he may not have practiced what he preached. 

As her world falls apart, Nina begins to question everything she thought she knew and to see the men in her life–her father, her boyfriend, and unexpectedly, her handsome and attentive boss, Rafael–in a new light. Soon Nina finds herself caught between the world she knows and loves, and a passion that could upend everything.

More than Words is a heartbreaking and romantic novel about grief, loss, love, and self-discovery, and how we choose which life we are meant to live

Thank you Putnam Books for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

I rate this book a 4 out of 5 Stars.

I needed a good love story, but I do not like romance books. I like tragic, heart wrenching love stories. Something tragic, heartbreaking, and full of betrayal! This book had it all, and I loved every dramatic page! I love a book that gives you two wonderful male leads, and gives the opportunity to love them both. However, I knew who I wanted her with from the second I started the book.

This was such a good read, a perfect mix of all the above mentioned things that I love in a romance book. I appreciated that every character had a flaw, and that while she knew people in her life weren’t perfect, she worked hard to make up for their shortcomings, and to do what was right.

Santopolo did an amazing job conveying the grief that Nina felt after her dad passed, and the wide array of emotions that she went through after she started digging into her dad and their family history. The life and parent she thought was perfect, was anything but. And I absolutely loved it!!
