Book Two in the Needing Moore Series. Adult Contemporary Romance

Continuing the fight for their happily ever after that began in Searching for Moore, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver struggle to overcome the ghosts and baggage they accumulated during their time apart.

Exploring the missing 24 years when they were separated, Moore to Lose follows Mia's journey from heartbroken teen to kickass businesswoman to her emotional reunion with Schooner and the exploration of the love that was ripped from them.

But is their love really strong enough to overcome the damage of those missing 24 years or will they continue to be ripped apart by pasts that can't be changed?

This is Book 2 in the Needing Moore Series. This is not a stand alone book. It is meant to be read after Searching for Moore.

My Review:
Moore to Lose (Needing Moore, #2)Moore to Lose by Julie A. Richman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.  Spoiler-free review. I highly recommend reading Searching For Moore (book #1) prior to reading Moore to Loose (Book #2). Five Moore Stars for Julie Richman and Moore To Loose (#2).

Moore to Loose picks up where Finding Moore left off. Mia is on bed rest after her accident. In MTL, Mia’s heart breaking life story and painful unravels prior to reuniting with Schooner.  Schooner was always in her head and heart and she wasn’t truly emotionally available to another man. In turn, Mia hit her own “self-destruct” button that created an emotional abyss of mindless drug abuse and promiscuous behavior. Fast forward years later…will Mia & Schooner make it work?  Will history repeat itself?

Ok…let me just say that this book ends with a cliffhanger. It absolutely should not stop you from reading this book NOW. The way Julie Richman chronicled Mia’s life prior to finding Schooner was so real and believable. What a back story and character development. Kudos to Julie for knowing her downtown NYC stores, bars, restaurants etc. (I lived in the area she was writing about). I have a feeling book three will have many *Moore* gut wrenching twists and turns and HEA. You want these characters to win...and finally make it. They are both so lovable. Julie Richman I want Moore NOW.

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?


Author Julie A. Richman is a native New Yorker living deep in the heart of Texas. A creative writing major in college, reading and writing fiction has always been a passion. Julie began her corporate career in publishing in NYC and writing played a major role throughout her career as she created and wrote marketing, advertising, direct mail and fundraising materials for Fortune 500 corporations, advertising agencies and non-profit organizations. She is an award winning nature photographer plagued with insatiable wanderlust. Julie and her husband have one son and a white German Shepherd named Juneau.

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.

  1. Loved the 2nd book just as much as the first....Book two told of Mia's story in the 24 years she was apart from Schooner. Loved her kick ass attitude to life, Her career rise. Her relationships...No the girl certainly didn't live the life of a nun! We had the re appearance of some old friends and learn't more about how they fitted into the first book...Oh and the re appearance of a certain hot Mr Moore!!! This book will have you laughing one minute and crying the next! Can't wait for Moore!!

    1. I cant wait for Moore. I loved Mia's journey (it was so heart breaking at times). Both books are great....I am dying to see where Julie Richman takes us....Moore NOW.

  2. I wholeheartedly agree that the cliffhangers should not keep readers from enjoying the first two books in the "Needing Moore" trilogy. This unique story reunites college sweethearts after 24 years.

    However, "Moore to Lose," is the more powerful of the two books that have been released. It follows Mia Silver's life and we learn about her experiences in the "lost" 24 years. It is raw, emotional, funny, painful and poignant.

    Highly recommended!

    1. I thought Mia's back story was a brilliant idea. I am not a fan of cliffhangers...but I know the next book will be worth the wait.

      Imagine how relationships Facebook has created (or re created)?
