Publisher's Summary

Paul Fallon is a fashion advertising guru. He's a genius at dealing with difficult editors, art directors, and designers alike. He thrives on the chaotic atmosphere and constant challenges. But in his personal life, he's hoping for peace and stability. Settling down with a nice doctor or lawyer sounds perfect. Anyone but an artist. He's been there, done that, and he doesn't want to relive the heartache.
Seth Landau is a model, occasional guitarist, and aspiring painter. He's quirky, flighty, and wise beyond his years. Life has taught him some tough lessons, then given him opportunities he never dreamed of. He's learned to appreciate the fragility of life and to express it in his work. Seth's flare for the absurd combined with a supple mind and a beautiful body are too alluring for Paul to ignore. Against his best intentions, Paul is drawn to the younger man whose particular brand of crazy challenges Paul to accept that things aren't always as they seem. Sometimes taking a chance is better than being safe.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I sure would. It's intriguing, engrossing and sensual.


Who was your favorite character and why?

SETH! Lord I loved Seth, the way he just sort of parked himself in Paul's life and became an interesting piece of furniture that Paul either had to step over or use, either way, Paul couldn't just float through life alone anymore.


What does Tyler Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His vocal talents are amazing and spot on. With each book i this series he gives every character their own unique tones and does a fantastic job of conveying emotions that are sometimes lost in words unless you have tone to go with them.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A little bit of both, there were some cringeworthy moments as well. Paul fears being hurt again so at times, he jumps to the wrong conclusion and you can see the train derailing as it happens.


Any additional comments?

I'm a bit sad to see this series come to an end, but I will likely re-visit these guys from time to time. As with every book in the Better Than world, it's a case of Opposites attract. Paul is this serious, pent up, professional that has been hurt one time to many so he's closed himself off from the possibility of love. Seth is this larger than life presence, beautiful and all encompassing. He blows through Paul's life and neither of them will ever be the same. Seth has reasons not to trust as well but the always immaculate Paul has piqued his interest.

The two get off to a rocky start, trust issues and such standing in the way, but as I said, both are intrigued with the other. Paul wants the wild child artist that is open, honest and troubled. Seth is extremely attracted to Paul and makes it his mission to pull the turtle out of his shell. The attraction is mutual and the sex is amazing, sensual and toe curling; but each man still has demons to deal with that threaten their budding relationship.

This may have been my favorite of the four books/couples. Seth literally had to coax Paul to have a life. If you've read/listened to the previous books, you have an inkling as to why Paul is standoffish. It doesn't help that both men share something from the past that is threatening any hope they have of a future together.

If you like stories where the two MC's are insanely attracted to each other, share a chemistry that is electric and magnetic, and yet they kinda fight it every step of the way all while having some amazing sex... you'll love this one!

Least favorite book in the series

The story was a bit boring, taking a lot of time into Paul's head. I didn't think Paul and Seth fit as a couple and I didn't find the sex scenes interesting. Furthermore, I was reading A bit of honesty at the same time, which I loved, and this book suffered from the unavoidable comparison.
