Moore to Lose by Juile Richman Blog Tour/Review

Release Date: September 30th 2013.  Adult Contemporary Romance

Book Two in the Needing Moore Series. Adult Contemporary Romance

Continuing the fight for their happily ever after that began in Searching for Moore, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver struggle to overcome the ghosts and baggage they accumulated during their time apart.

Exploring the missing 24 years when they were separated, Moore to Lose follows Mia's journey from heartbroken teen to kickass businesswoman to her emotional reunion with Schooner and the exploration of the love that was ripped from them.

But is their love really strong enough to overcome the damage of those missing 24 years or will they continue to be ripped apart by pasts that can't be changed?

This is Book 2 in the Needing Moore Series. This is not a stand alone book. It is meant to be read after Searching for Moore.

My Review:

I read Searching for Moore and Moore to Lose back to back and I'm glad I did. If you haven't read Searching for Moore, you need to do so before you read this book.

Moore to Lose takes the story of Schooner and Mia from Mia's point of view. We learn so much about her life after college, into her adulthood and then Schooner rejoins the story. I like how the author weaves the past with the present and I always like dual POV books. This book made me cry. At one point, I knew something unpleasant was going to happen, I just knew it. Once it finally did, I couldn't stop my tears.

Moore to Lose ends, again, in a cliffhanger. If you don't like those, then these books are not for you. I will be waiting anxiously (and not patiently) for the next installment of Schooner and Mia. 4.5 out of 5!

Damn, this woman could bring him to his knees. There they were - both standing there, naked. Vulnerable. The truth was finally out. And if he was standing there high on the edge of a  cliff, he wasn't standing there alone anymore. Mia had joined him. She was as bold and fearless as she'd always been. This was the Mia Silver with whom he had fallen hopelessly in love.
"We're going to be ok, Mia," he reassured her. He wasn't going to allow himself to believe anything else. He could picture her shaking her head yes on the other end of the phone as he heard her trying to hide her tears. He pictured gently wiping them away with his thumb.

"You promise, Schooner?"

And as always with Mia, making a promise was so damn easy. "I promise, Baby Girl."

  1. "Moore to Lose" is the perfect bridge between the past and present, as we are taken on Mia's life journey. I was happy to see Julie Richman devote the time to exploring all of Mia's experiences and relationships, so we could see a better picture of the woman she became. She is one of my favorite leading ladies, and "Moore to Lose" makes her even more lovable, likable and a woman to be respected. I highly recommend it!

  2. I so couldn't wait to read this book...and it hasn't disappointed.....I had expected it to pick up where the last one left off so was pleasantly surprised to discover it was Mia's story of the 24 years before Schooners return. Mia's had her fair share of ups and downs along the way to reach the top of her career and certainly hasn't lived the life of a nun! I've laughed and cried with her and can't wait for the next book..

  3. I absolutely LOVED Moore to Lose! It gave me the answers to questions I had after reading book 1 Searching for Moore. While I can't relate personally to Mia's struggles I know a lot of women can and the way that Julie A. Richman wrote the trials and tribulations of Mia's missing 24 years away from Schooner made me cry, kick and scream, laugh and ultimately fall more in love with the story. To me this is the most important piece of the puzzle to the series.

    I am anxiously waiting for the last book of this trilogy~
