“This is the face of a man looking at a woman he loves. He has no money or prestige, only a heart.”

More Than Series


More than water



It doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel wrong. It just…feels.

EJ Cunning, an art history major, dates musicians. Foster Blake, a chemical engineering major, can’t sing a tune. They’re not each other’s type. They’re coworkers.

Then, one night leads to sex—sex between friends—which leads to an agreement. It all seems so simple—but nothing ever is.

Many layers build a person’s facade.

Look into the depths for what’s hidden within.

It’s more than water. It’s a story—a living and breathing substance beyond the reflective surface.

‘I bleed my struggles onto the canvas, into my sculptures, and through my drawings. I create compulsively. It’s my therapy and my way to make all the complexities right within my mind.’

This book had us laughing at the banter, smiling at the romance, tearing up over the emotion and swooning at the intensity and passion. But most of all it has us falling in geek love with the fabulously sexy spectacled Foster. Yeah; whilst we loved everything about this book – Foster was IT for us. This guyTHIS GUY!!!!

“You know I love it when you talk nerdy to me…”

We say this a lot but a book that has everything – a book that’s so well written you feel everything – a book that has a hero and heroine you fall in absolute love with; well if that’s not book love we don’t know what is! This story was pretty flawless and every time we had to put it down we counted the minutes till we could pick it up again. It was addictive, intelligent and thoughtful. It was sexy, sweet and funny. It was everything you’d wish for as a reader. Except for one small thing…we wanted more. More afters – an epilogue – just more. It ended too soon and a tad abruptly, but then we’re greedy readers when we fall in love with a story and a beautiful couple. A great build up deserves a great convincing finale.

‘Oh shit, what kind of nerd fest did I just sit down to?’

Well EJ – one we’d do anything to sit down to with you! We loved this girl – she was smart, sassy and side splittingly funny. One of our favourite heroines out there. She lived and breathed art with passion. She knew who she was and what she wanted and who she definitely didn’t want to be. She knew she may not have the choice though. She never really had one to begin with. That is until an unlikely inspiration and ‘enabler’ walked into her life. Someone she least expected and someone who had the potential to enable her to finally realise she has a choice. To find her voice.

‘My heart broke the rules. I’m pissed at my betraying heart.’

Foster…..FOSTER! Well; be still our nerd loving hearts. He was the complete package. He talked good chemistry and the banter between him and EJ was classic. His passion and intelligence was intense and we loved how he started as a friend and how he, in our opinion, drove this friendship and relationship. He enabled self-realisation, growth and self-fulfilment. This man was everything and with his own demons he himself went through self-healing.

This was our first book by Renee Ericson but it definitely won’t be our last. We absolute loved More Than Water and highly recommend it to every romance reader out there. We felt every word and every emotion. It was like a breath of fresh air that went straight to our book loving hearts.

‘It doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel wrong. It just…feels.’
