As he hardened beneath her fingers, Mia's devil smile grew wider and wider.
"You're incorrigible." 
Mia looked at him with her "You didn't just figure that out now, did you?" look and he laughed.
She could feel his erection straining against his jeans and she wanted to take it out probably as much as he did. With a quick kiss on the lips, she ducked her head down the bed. 
He started to protest and Mia looked up at him and put her finger to her lips, "Shhhh."
And then she did what he did not expect. She did not undo the top button of his jeans, she did not unzip his fly, she did not reach inside his jeans to pull him out and fondle him (even though she was dying to). With her teeth, Mia outlined his cock through his jeans. As she moved from base to tip at an excruciatingly slow pace, she opened her mouth so that her top teeth were on one side of his cock, her bottom teeth on the other.
The sound of his moan and the feel of his fingers in her hair, made Mia ache to have him inside of her. She nibbled the soft head of his cock through the rough fabric. 
"Oh God, Mia." He reached down and pulled her on top of him so that they were laying face to face. Both panting, he took her face in his hands and pulled her lips down to his, kissing her roughly. 
She could feel his cock between her legs and pressed down, "I want you," she said into his mouth, rubbing along the length of him slowly clockwise, and then lifting her mouth off of his slightly to smile, she changed the direction of her grinding to counterclockwise.

 My 4 Star Review : 

Moore to Lose is the second book in the Needing Moore Series. If you have not read Searching for Moore. Then I suggest you do before reading this one.

In searching for Moore we got to see what happened in Schooner’s life from the time that he and Mia separated 24 years ago. We watched them reunite and start to build a relationship together.
In this one we get to see what Mia went through with her life for the 25 years that she and Schooner were away from each other.

This is Mia’s journey. We all knew she was one tough cookie living the life in New York. In Moore to Lose we see what happened to Mia during college and all her relationships until the day she saw Schooner again 24 years later.
Mia did not have one easy journey, we witnessed her struggles with life, trying to get over what had happened with Schooner was not an easy task for her. We got to see how broken Mia truly was. This was one emotional rollercoaster.  We even got a part of a real life drama that affected those in New York, which will break your heart and have you holding your breathe through the whole situation.

Julia did an amazing Job writing this story and I cannot wait for the conclusion of Mia and Schooner’s love story. I am glad that we got to see things from Mia’s POV and all that she went through. 

I cannot wait for Book #3 and for Mia and Schooner to finally get their HEA !!!!!!

Currently ON SALE for ONLY $0.99

Attended by reality TV star wannabes and Southern California social climbers, Schooner Moore knows the party his wife is throwing for his forty-third birthday has little to do with him and everything to do with her social standing in Orange County. The evening turns out to hold more surprises than just his wife's Botoxed friends groping at his privates, when a conversation with his old college roommate, Beau, reveals the biggest surprise of the night.

Beau has had contact on Facebook with Mia Silver. Just hearing her name sends Schooner into a tailspin, as he is now just a Friend Request away from the one who got away when she disappeared without a goodbye, leaving him wondering why she left.

A serial failure at romance, Manhattan boutique ad agency owner, Mia, gets a blindside of her own when a Facebook Friend Request from first love, Schooner, appears in her email. Going with her gut reaction, Mia hits accept, propelling her past to catch up with her in a New York minute, as a forceful Schooner is determined to understand what tore them apart and to explore the possibility of a second chance at love.

From a 1980's Southern California college campus and a devastating first love to present day New York City, Searching for Moore explores how technology has eradicated the divide between our past and our present, and asks whether you would give up everything to reconnect with The One in a single keystroke?

  1. 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~

  2. I loved Searching for Moore so couldn't wait to get my hands on Moore to Lose..Loved how it filled in the missing 24 years since Mia and Schooner's separation. It certainly explains some of the things from the first book. We meet some new characters and are re introduced to some of those from the first book learning a bit more about how they fit into Mia's life. We learn of our heroine's rise to ballsy business woman with a few laughs and tears along the way. Mia certainly didn't spend 24 years living the life of a nun! Loved this book as much as the first and can't wait for book 3..

  3. "Moore to Lose," was an unexpected, but PERFECT, book 2 in the "Needing Moore" trilogy. I was happy to see Julie Richman spend the time to really delve into Mia's past. The reader is taken on the journey with her through the good, the bad, and the ugly. But, we are rewarded in knowing she grows into a much stronger version of herself.

    I am curious to read book three, to find out how Mia and Schooner finally arrive at their well-deserved HEA.
