More Than Comics by Elizabeth Briggs is a fun and entertaining read. This is the second book in Briggs’ Chasing the Dream series, and it picks up right where More Than Music left off. I highly recommend you read the books in order to avoid any spoilers. Hector and his band mates are taking a much needed break at Comic-Con, before going on tour. Hector is also at Comic-Con to promote the graphic novel he collaborated on with Tara McFadden, a writer he met online. He’s secretly been in love with Tara during the three years they worked together. Hector and Tara meet in person for the first time right before their panel at Comic-Con, and the chemistry between them ignites.
As much as I loved seeing the band again in this book, this installment felt a bit rushed. The sexual tension between Hector and Tara starts almost immediately from the moment they meet in person. They did have a history of communicating online for three years, but a bit more build up or anticipation before they started a sexual relationship would have helped me connect with the romantic aspect of their story.
I really liked the premise of the story. I have never read a book set in the middle of Comic-Con. I’ve never been to Comic-Con either so it was fun to get a glimpse of the event. I’m thinking I might have to try going sometime. The cosplay scenes seemed like a lot of fun too. The plot was cute, if a bit predictable at times.
Overall, More Than Comics was a fun and sexy read. I would have liked a bit more build up to the romance, but still this read is a great little afternoon diversion. If you enjoy your romances on the steamy side, you’ll like this one.
