Publisher's Summary

A billionaire and a single mother have more in common than they know.

He's a billionaire businessman. Luciano Donati, entrepreneur and eligible bachelor, lost his first wife to cancer. So though he lives in romantic Charleston, SC, he has every intention of ignoring the upcoming holiday for lovers, at least until he sets eyes again on his younger sister's best friend. He remembers Anastasia as a teenager who idolized him, not this lovely, fragile woman with heartbreak in her eyes. Heartbreak that he finds himself wanting to cure. Her smile warms his soul, her touch ignites his desire, and her little girl Soo-Min melts his frozen heart. Adopted internationally himself at a young age, Luciano understands all too well the strong need to belong somewhere.

She's a single mom. Anastasia Markow, cancer survivor and divorced mother, didn't come to Charleston, SC for romance. She's here to make sure she has custody of her adopted daughter, Soo-Min. But when she encounters the first man she ever loved, here in the city of horse-drawn carriages and candlelight, her battered heart can't help but bloom again. And when Luciano and Soo-Min take to each other, resisting his charm becomes even harder. Handsome, self-assured, every inch the successful billionaire, Luciano is out of Anastasia's reach. But when a hurricane strands them together and they must trust each other to survive; things heat up despite the rain. Can Valentine's Day bring this unlikely pair together, this time for good?

Good Read

I Love You More was a good read by Josie Riviera. Luciano Donati is a billionaire businessman, who lost his first wife to cancer. He doesn't want to find love again until he sees his younger sister's best friend. Anastasia was a teenager who idolized Luciano. Unfortunately, now she's a fragile woman who has heartbreak in her eyes. She's a single mom and cancer survivor who just wants to make sure that she has custody of her daughter. A hurricane strands them together and they must trust each other to survive. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Endearing story

I loved this sweet story about old time friends who finally find each other. The author deals with a lot as there is International adoption, divorce, cancer, search for birth family, putting others needs in front of your own and she does it all very well.

The narrator did a great job with voices and accents. Such a cute child's voice.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily left this review.

Jumping to conclusions usually leads to disaster

Anastasia needs to stop jumping to conclusions. About her ex, about Luciano, about her lawyer and about herself. Not many people get a second chance with their high school crush, especially not once he’s become a billionaire. They both have a lot going on in their lives so they need to slow down and fill each other in before they ruin their chances. It was a very sweet story with an adoptive child’s best interest at heart.

A start about international adoption

This audiobook gave us Luciano Donati and Anastasia Markow.
Luciano was the young boy she had a crush on years ago but each went their separate ways.
When Anastasia, a cancer survivor and recently divorced Mom goes to visit Luciano’s sister, Luciano , now a widower and millionaire, is once enchanted with Anastasia.
During a terrible storm the friendship strengths. But Anastasia is determined to get full custody of her adopted daughter, and Luciano, who was adopted as a child, wants to find his biological family in Italy.
Though at times I felt that the side plots didn’t always seem to blend with the main story, it still was a sweet , clean romance.
I felt that at the forefront was the fact that international adoptions bring parents and children in need together to form a new family that will fill the hearts of all involved.
Finally, the narration of the audiobook was well done

Sweet!

I listened to the audiobook and it was very enjoyable. The narrator had a very pleasant voice.
A sweet contemporary novella that will touch your heart. Different hard issues are brought out in the book, divorce, cancer, death and adoption. Since the book wasn’t long there wasn’t time to go deep with each issue but she got her point across. I think you will enjoy this audiobook if you like sweet romances.
I received this book from the author but I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Sweet Romance

I Love You More, by Josie Riviera is a sweet romance and it starts out with a bang as Anastasia and Luciano are caught in a hurricane. Their relationship starts off quickly too as they have been reunited after many years. The characters are likable and each have their strengths and foibles which make them relatable. The author realistically deals with some rather gritty subjects, such as cancer, child custody, and adoption. I enjoyed this 'clean' romance story and look forward to reading more from this author. Liz Baechel did a great job narrating Anastasia and Luciano's story which made for an enjoyable listening experience. I listened to a complimentary copy of the audiobook, and was not required to write a review. The opinions are my own.

Sweet, lovely romance!

I love you more! Josie Riviera has picked the perfect title for this book! Anastasia, a single mom is not looking for a relationship. She is just trying to keep custody of her adopted daughter. Her ex-husband is not an easy man, and things are getting messy. Visiting South Carolina, she never expected to see her first love, Luciano. Luciano lives in South Carolina and is still dealing with the loss of his wife. He bumps into Anastasia, his best friend’s sister and though she isn’t the vibrant love struck teenager, she still warms his heart. And her daughter, well she just makes him smile. Will these two find a second chance at love together? Riviera packs so much into her books, and this one has so much in it! I love the international adoption of Soo-Min, the care in dealing with life threatening disease and the chance to find a new normal, and a new love. It’s all there in this wonderfully written, with a little danger thrown in as well, you will find the protectiveness, compassion and true love to warm your heart.

Liz Baechel brings this all to life with a wonderful performance. Her style is a good fit for this book, adding in a little Italian accent to give Luciano that romantic feel. She plays Anastasia with a realistic feel, as we get the emotional pull of a mom, and a woman. It is a beautiful listen.
