About the Book:
Nina Gregory has always been a good daughter. Raised by her father, owner of New York City’s glamorous Gregory Hotels, Nina was taught that family reputation and legacy are what matter most. And Tim — her devoted boyfriend and best friend since child­hood — feels the same. But when Nina’s father dies, he leaves behind a secret that shocks Nina to her core. As her world falls apart, Nina begins to see the men in her life — her father, her boyfriend, and unexpectedly her boss Rafael — in a new light.

Soon, Nina finds her­self caught between the world she loves and a passion that could upend everything. More Than Words is a heart­breaking and romantic novel about grief, loss, love, and self-discovery, and how we choose which life we are meant to live.
