When we build walls to protect ourselves we arbitrarily lock ourselves in and lock others out . In the meantime, life goes on and we play "the hand that is dealt". Better Than None is a mesmerizing tale. It grips , commands our full attention and leads us into moments of reflection. This story is a journey of life and death; of love and forgiveness. It affirms that "unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it will not grow." We are stronger than we know. This is the story of our lives told through the person of Stephanie Lawson, a 37 year old professional, who attempts to become someone other than what her past defines her as. When her mother is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, she becomes acquainted with the adage you can run but you cannot hide (from life experiences).Until faced with the mortality of her best friend and mother, Steph had not faced her own frailties. Better Than None reminds us that we all have a story and we can be certain our own is not an exclusive - for that which we have not lived we can still empathise and learn from. This book is said to be different from the author's previous books, but it is still undeniably Olivia Jake. She has taken her personal experience of loss and transcribed it into a conduit of hope, encouragement and understanding that leads to forgiveness. She shows us that death is not just an end but a beginning as well. This is an unforgettable story. I highly recommend it to book lovers of every genre' and to every person who seeks understanding of his fellow man.

This is my first from this author and I enjoyed it very much. I liked that the characters were older and mature, but still steamy and with enough substance to make a great story. I was a little confused as to what brought oh the Stephanie's change. What happened that she was starting at a new place and that made her change her interactions with men? Other then that the story was touching and the emotions dealing with caring for a parent were realistic. Pick this one up today!

A view into the pain of suffering through illness with a loved one; painful but beautiful. The characters are so broken but the insight and experiences come full circle, making them seem real. It reads like a memoir.

Another great read. You're emotionally there with an author who has mastered the perfect blend of personal experience with a story so heartwarmingly real anyone can relate. You can't help but feel like every character is someone you care about even when their flaws are on full display. Only a talented writer can pull this off. Thank you for this escape.

This is a perfect vacation read. LOVED IT!!! Life's circumstances brought out self-sabatage and at the same time unbelievable depths of kindness and compassion for Steph. Learning from loss and pursuing her own path, Steph connects to her inner search for growth. A beautiful, authentic read that I couldn't put down.

Having read other works by Jake and found them totally engaging, I was thrilled to see another title out by her so soon. I read this in literally one sitting and have to say, while it's different from her previous works--it was a captivating read! Definitely more emotional than I expected, Better Than None tackles some real life issues in a way that's so honest you almost forget it's fiction. The relationship between mother and daughter is so real, and the journey they go on together is utterly compelling. To me this was a love story on many levels, with just enough romance to keep me turning the pages. Waiting patiently for the next Jake release!
