More Than Comics - Elizabeth Briggs

I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Briggs and her series, Chasing The Dream. The fourth book in the series, More Than Once, releases on December 1 so I thought I'd treat my readers with a review of the entire series so far. You can find my review of More Than Music here on my blog. More Than Comics is book two, reviewed below, and I will post my review of More Than Fashion next week! I am really looking forward to posting my review for the fourth book on the 1st, because it was definitely not a disappointment. If you enjoy this series as much as I do, let me know. If you haven't read it yet, definitely look into it.

Many thanks to Netgalley and Elizabeth Briggs for providing a copy in exchange for my honest review.

More Than Comics picks up where More than Music left off. After an amazing time on the show, The Sound, Hector and his bandmates get to take a break from music to follow him as he attends Comic-Con for his work as an artist on the comic book Misfits Squad. Tara McFadden is the genius behind Misfits Squad and she's finally getting the opportunity to meet Hector after knowing each other through just in the internet for three years while they collaborated on the graphic novels. They're meeting brings out emotions both were holding back and after seeing each other in a new light, they have to make a choice on whether 4 days of Comic-Con is enough time to decide to change their lives for each other.

I have made it no secret that I am a huge Elizabeth Briggs fan and an even bigger fan of the Chasing the Dream series, so it should be no surprise that I loved More Than Comics. I was more than excited for Hector's story, especially with his moody demeanor in the first two books. He's a likable character with an interesting history that makes you want to get to know him. I enjoyed his history playing into his present, Elizabeth Briggs always does that so well. Tara is also an incredibly interesting character. She's driven, smart, and totally unaware of Hector's feelings for her and her own for him. Their interactions are a combination of funny, stressful, and sexy as they circle around each other. The Comic-Con part of this is awesome, I loved the cosplay and watching the fans with the band, Hector, and Tara. Plus, I really liked the band's mixture of friends and how you get to know all the characters we'll get to know even better in future books.

Like always, Elizabeth Briggs did a great job of setting up background, tying in the previous books, and connecting to the future books in the series. This is an incredibly short read, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have depth and enough action to pack a punch. I am sad to say this is the last book in the band's part of the series, but I am definitely looking forward to the rest. Julie's story is next as she takes on a good looking competitor on a fashion reality show, then we get to read all about Andrew (Andy in this book) and his former one night stand, Becca.
