Logan is the middle of the seven Preston siblings (aka the ‘Preston Punks’). He is the one with the snarky attitude who sleeps around and spends his time getting high. From the outside it seems like he’s just wasting his life away, but in reality he is deeply tortured, and is desperately searching for a way to forget memories from the past which continually torment him.
Ava is a friend of the girl that Logan is currently ‘seeing’. She moved to town a few months ago as an adventure to start a new life for herself, but things haven’t quite worked out the way she imagined and she is still figuring things out. She and Logan have met, and they had an intense dislike of each other, but at a party one night they start to look at each other differently, and that animosity turns into something different.
“What's beneath the bravado, Logan Preston?”
This isn’t a textbook romance. Sure, Logan and Ava are attracted to each other, but it’s a slow and gradual thing as they work themselves out. It’s messy, and it’s complicated by Logan and the way he is, and by things that Ava has been through, and I could feel the struggle as they work out what it is they want and then fight to figure out how to be together. And I could feel everything right along with them - the confusion and uncertainty, the passion, excitement and bliss of first love, the heartache, and the contentment that comes from finding your soul mate and creating something special together. It’s a rollercoaster and it’s full of feels, with my heart damn near breaking and then bursting with happiness as it all played out.
As they come to terms with what they are feeling and work through their issues, we get a gorgeous love story that is sweet, sexy, full of fun moments, and beautifully emotional as Logan falls hard for the first time in his life. But despite the happiness that they have found together, there are demons right beneath the surface, and omg, the feeeeeeels! My heart shattered. I literally ached as I read with tears streaming down my face, and all I wanted to do was take these characters in my arms and hold them. It’s not easy to read, but I thought the way it was written was realistic - raw, intense and real, and I could feel the torment as Logan and Ava were put to the test in ways the never could have imagined.
And so much more than just Logan and Ava, this is a story about family. Logan’s dad and his siblings all play a big part, and I loved seeing the dynamics at play within the family, as well as seeing the stories progress for the characters from this and the More Than series. The big surprise in this book was Lachlan - the youngest Preston is only 9 years old, but he has a huge part to play in this story. I loved the way his relationships with Logan and Ava were explored, and his impact on them, and the story, is profound and so, so gorgeous.
Jay McLean has done a wonderful job writing this book. There are moments in the story that are so intense and meaningful, I actually held my breath while reading. Two moments in particular I think will be permanently etched on my brain – small moments that are beautifully written and that mean EVERYTHING, and they brought the waterworks once again.
Overall, this is a beautifully written, emotional, angsty, heartbreaking but ultimately healing story. The romance is gorgeous, the family dynamics are spot-on, and I loved Logan and Ava’s journey.
Logan is the black sheep, the middle brother, the drop out, the Douche, working in the family business and has deep hidden issues he escapes from facing with the use of his addiction to his “best friend Mary.”
His relationship with Aubrey begins with them both disliking each other, yet neither can deny the draw. Logan has been burned by life and Aubrey has been burned by Love, yet Jay McLean writes a story that hits you so deep it claws at emotions you didn’t even realise you had. Logan’s strength floored me, but he is after all a Preston!! Aubrey’s bravery left me in awe. Logan and Aubrey’s fall into love and Aubrey’s relationships with the rest of the Preston family melted my heart.
You aren’t just reading a story, your living it right along with them. The pain, the anguish, the emotions, the tears, the sobbing they flow freely. Everything else disappears except for your need to keep turning those pages, to know more, to feel more and your addiction to these characters rules your heart and your mind. It reaches deep and grips tight. The moments of pure joy and elation when you are laughing with them, and when secrets are revealed your devastation is real!!! Jay McLean shatters your heart in the best kind of way and is one of very few authors that can have me smiling, rocking and snot sobbing at the same time !!!
Jay McLean has done it again..she uses her words to comfort, slay, redeem, laugh, mourn, hate and finally understand all that is Logan Preston. Through the other books at a glance he is the brat, the one lost in a cloud of smoke. But to those closest to him, he is everything.
This book has so much depth. It has you wanting, suffering, rebuilding and the unwavering unselfish love of family. A broken boy that uses others to escape; whether it's Mary, randoms, just anything to dull the ache that life can create. You want more for him. You want her for him.
She has something different. She holds the truth. She is love. She is strength. She is everything.
This story is beyond stars. Words that claimed my heart and haven't let go. Every McLean book I read I think "this is my favorite" but seriously this might be. Logan is everything. Reading this story will have you going through a laundry list of emotions, and at the end of it all you will thank your lucky stars that you cracked open page one. I can't fully express how much I invested in this one. I have never been so completely owned by a fictional character. Highs, lows, just rights, every single twist and turn you just want more for all of them. Words. They are rad.

Logan's story is surrounded by agonizing grief. From the very first page you know something terrible happened to him. The storyline hints to it.Read more
