Book Description

I lost the love of my life when she disappeared without even a goodbye.

It was the 80's - there was no internet, no Google, no cell phones.

If you wanted to disappear, you could.

And she did.

She crushed my soul.

A friend just told me he saw her on Facebook.

And now I'm a keystroke away from asking her the question that's haunted me for two decades.

"Why did you leave me?"



Two decades after she broke his heart, sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore uncovers the truth and betrayal his life has been built on when he Facebook friend requests college love, Mia Silver. Determined to win Mia's love once again, Schooner embarks on a life-altering journey that could cost him everything.



This is the FIRST book of the NEEDING MOORE SERIES TRILOGY and is NOT meant to be read as a stand-alone. Books 2 & 3 - Moore to Lose and Moore than Forever are both available.



Julie A. Richman's latest work, Bad Son Rising, is also available..

#7 Barnes & Noble Bestseller List 

- "I absolutely loved this book! I loved Schooner. I loved Mia. I loved the surrounding characters. I loved the flashbacks. I loved the here and now. It's original and addictive." - Smitten's Book Blog

- "I can't believe this is Julie Richman's first book. Everything about this story and the characters is so authentic. I had some emotional whiplash while I was reading SFM. Schooner and Mia's relationship was heartbreaking at times. One press of a button changed everything. I need more Moore and can't wait for book two."  - KindleCrack Book Reviews
- "Julie Richman brought me a wonderful love story. Love is not always easy and life is not always fair. You don't always get what you want and sometimes you just have to learn to deal with that the best you can. The connection between Mia and Schooner is so beautiful and so strong that you can't help but root them on the entire story. I am so glad that I read Searching for Moore and I can't wait for more. I will tell you that I loved every bit of this story and I know you will too. It will be "smoochal"!" - Swoonworthy Book Blog
- "I couldn't read this book fast enough. I was turning the pages on my kindle so fast I thought I was going to break the screen." -Coffee and a Good Book

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this story so much~WISH IT WERE TRUE June 16, 2013
By Buffee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was amazing. The story line is so heart felt. I just really gobbled this read up. The characters of Schooner & Mia are captivating and very authentic. Even the "filler" characters are really well done. I can't say enough about a story line were two people fall in love, have heartache and are reunited 24 years later. I really hope this is based on a true story. I think this book should be made into a film for Lifetime.,....however talk about a cliffhanger....grrrrr......I will be the first one to download book 2 when it's out!!!! This is the PERFECT SUMMER READ!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Schooner is Swoon-worthy and Mia is adorable May 7, 2013
By K. Bias
Format:Kindle Edition
"Oh baby girl...you have no idea of what you do to me."
"It's smoochal..."

This story has an interesting true to life premise and was different and intriguing. It is a love story that spans twenty four years and opposite ends of the country. Schooner and Mia were college first loves and it was all ruined by a jealous girl with an agenda. Consequences and miscommunication cost them twenty four years until one night a forty-three old Schooner makes a Facebook friend request that gives them a second chance and alters their lives.

Mia and Schooner were so good together. I loved them at sixteen and nineteen years old, and also at forty and forty-three years old. She brings out the best in him and let him be himself. He is loving, protective, and completely swoon-worthy. He is used to being seen as a pretty face and star tennis player and kept a mask on for the world, but Mia saw right to his heart. He always saw Mia as a hidden gem: intelligent, unique, sassy, strong, funny, and secure in her own identity.

Their young love story was so special and heartwarming. They did not seem like a couple that belonged together, but they truly worked. Their relationship during their college years had a few starts and stops, but all along they truly cared deeply and passionately for one another. They were intense, completely enthralled with one another, and truly soul mates.

(Quote)Your first and your last, Baby Girl, Schooner vowed to himself. Your first and your last.

But communication during important times unfortunately was their downfall. And trust, insecurities, and meddling ripped them apart and changed the course of their lives.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Fan April 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought an anthology called Tempting Fate and this book was part of it. I am reviewing it individually.

I hate to give bad reviews but this book drove me absolutely crazy! The characters were so infuriating.

SPOILERS BELOW:

Schooner-Worst.Name.Ever, but whatever. This guy was vapid and had absolutely no control over his own life. His good looks made life easy but also had him treating his prom queen girlfriend/wife like she was a street hooker with no individual worth besides pleasing him. He certainly didn't treat her well or with any respect whatsoever. I hated his attitude that he was better than her. He knew what she was like when he married her and that didn't stop him. He took the easy road in almost every situation and never took personal responsibility for his actions. He never broke up with CJ while he was dating Mia. Instead he let her railroad him over and over and never once did the right thing by cutting her loose (presumably because she gave good BJs). She could have had a life with someone else who gave a damn about her if he would have been firm with her the first time. But no, he took the easy path and they both ended up miserable. Then, when Mia disappears, does he try to look for her? No. He says that because her last name is Silver and she lives in NY, there would be no way to track her down. He could have at least put a little effort into it! He knew the parents' names, had some personal clues about her and where she might be located roughly, but that would have been too much work for this poor guy. The author tries to redeem him by showing us his accomplishments and how domineering he can be in bed (he is alpha in the bedroom almost to a skeevy degree), but it all pales after realizing this guy has absolutely NO backbone whatsoever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Waiting for Moore June 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am floored that this is Ms. Richman's first novel. It is not a short book and I tore through it in 24 hours. The author brought a level of emotional depth and character development that is rare in this genre. She writes very well and has a bright future ahead of her. Authors in this genre with far, far less ability are getting snapped up by publishers left and right due to independent e-book publishing. Publishers should be queuing up to sign her.

That cliffhanger was a killer. Normally cliffhangers vex me, but I can forgive it because it was a novel of substantial length at a bargain price. The cliffhanger is clearly not a ploy to fleece her readers (I'm looking at you HM Ward). I am looking forward to the next installment and other future works by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! It's Smoochal! May 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I can't really say one specific thing that made this one of my favorite reads. It really is just the book as a whole. Maybe it was Schooner and how much he grew as a person, maybe it was Mia and how I could relate to her as her personality is similar to mine, maybe it was the whole lost love thing. I just know that I couldn't put this book down. When I was forced to I got a little irritated. Ha.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like Schooner at first. He came off a little cocky and he wasn't very nice to CJ, his girlfriend. I actually felt a little sorry for her at the beginning. But then CJ's true colors started to show and that feeling went away quick and loathing took over. Schooner grew up the golden boy, a child model, adored, and he has always acted the way he thought he was expected to. Not really ever being himself. He was so afraid of disappointing his mom. When he watched Mia from afar you could feel how miserable he was and how much he wanted to belong with her group.

"Schooner truly became the ultimate actor - acting out the role he thought would make his parents happy. He was the All-American Boy. Handsome, polite, top student, great athlete, buddy, boyfriend, son, soon-to-be frat brother. Schooner kept everyone happy. Schooner Moore had no f'ing idea who he really was."

Mia is a 16 year old free spirited college freshman. Her parents and Schooners parents are friends and he is asked to watch over her. You can feel the spark between Schooner and Mia as soon as they meet. Unfortunately, they belong to two different groups, Schooner with the jocks and Mia with the laid back hippie group. When CJ goes away to travel during Interim, Schooner and Mia are both in a class together and end up working on a project with each other and two of Mia's friends.

Book is too long, leaves you hanging
"Searching for Moore" is over 80,000 words in length, therefore it is a NOVEL (not a novella). It is a fantastic start to the "Needing Moore" series (of three books)!

Here are the word counts for each type of story:
Short Story 1,000 - 7,500 words
Novellette 7,500 -... Read More
