Editorial Reviews

Review

Too often I pick up books that are as easy to read as cookies are to eat...BUT the books that I remember, and the books that I recommend are the books that make me ask questions of myself, of the writer, of the characters. They make me think, they stir me up. Better is one of those books (as is its predecessor, Good.) ~ Kelly (Romance Addict Book Blog)

While I was in the middle of reading a thought dawned on me. This book is EXCEPTIONALLY thoughtful. There are a lot of ups and downs, a lot of doubt and feelings both good and bad, and a lot of growing up and confessing that gets done. I absolutely love the flow of the story and just how well it's told. ~ Anna (akiiKOMORI Reading)

Cadence and Mark have so many challenges to overcome, and as S. Walden is wont to do, she piles on more adversities in the second half of their story. It doesn't hurt that she wrote in one of THE HOTTEST sex scenes I've ever read. Better is a hardcore must-read, especially if you're into the whole forbidden, torrid love story thing. HIGHLY recommend! ~ Angie (Smut Book Club)

S.Walden is a brilliant writer who is a master at emotional projection. But what really shined is her ability to pull off a third person narrative with first-person scenes from Mark's POV, which gave more depth to the story and his character. ~ Kelly (Perusing Princesses)

Overall, Summer Walden wrote a beautiful book that told the story of two broken people that found comfort and love in one another. I love how Summer writes--the words flow effortlessly. Her style is one of my favorites. I cannot wait to read what she writes next. One word of advice--don't listen to the detractors of this series. Give it a chance. This is an amazing series. ~ Jamie (Addicted2Heroines)

I loved "Good", the first book in the series. I thought it was incredibly well written and very captivating. This book, however, was not.

I won't give anything away regarding the storyline, but I somewhat agree with another reviewer that said it felt like 2 different authors. 1) Maybe I was just used to the first book being from Cadence's POV, but the third person POV in this book just didn't seem to fit. I would have been fine with alternating POVs from Cadence and Mark, but not from everyone involved in the story. It was just too much, in my opinion. 2) Some aspects of the characters didn't seem consistent from book to book. I'm not talking about characters "growing" or "evolving", but simple traits and behaviors that I assume should have been present in the first book, but weren't, and seemed to be added into this book for flair.

I also agree with another reviewer that the religious aspect of the book got to be very overwhelming at times. I felt like the first book had a wonderful balance of including the characters' religion, and its importance, but there were a few times in this book that I felt like it took away from the story instead of adding to it.

It was a nice conclusion, but it was kind of drawn out. And I wish it didn't seem like the author tried so hard to make this a deep, somewhat soulful book.

I NEVER write reviews. Ever. But for some reason this particular book just compelled me to write something. I'm not going to talk about the book, because you can read the summary. Instead I'll tell you why this book doesn't deserve any stars whatsoever and why I wish I had never picked it up!
Honestly, there really aren't any words for how I feel about this book. It was literally painful to finish--when I finally made it to the finish line, I have never felt so relieved to be done with a book--and that includes books I was forced to read in school. There were times, actually I don't think there was a time I didn't want to bash my head against the wall, it was so terrible. There were also points where I couldn't help but laugh because what I was reading was so awkward and bizarre I just didn't even know what was going on--like I just didn't know how to react. Which is sad, because I was so excited for this since I loved Good. I just don't understand what happened. I had such high expectations but it just fell flat. Hell, it didn't even fall. What's really sad, is it makes Twilight seem like the Holy Grail of all books. That's how pathetic Better was.
So. Getting on with it...I'm so confused about what I read in this book. Like seriously they'd go from screwing each other's brains out to talking about their relationship with God. I just...brain does not compute!!!! I don't care if a book discusses God, but this was overkill. It seemed like every other paragraph had a reference to God. But the funny thing is, no matter how many times Cadence talked about how much she just loved God, or how much she believed in him and how she was a "Christian," her actions never once showed it.

I was beyond excited to pick this one up. I really enjoyed Good, but Better was the wrong title for this sequel because it definitely was not… Better. It’s sad because I wanted to love it. It was okay, but when in comparison to Good, it severely lacked in just about everything.

Here me out… first lets discuss the point of views. In Good, you have one point of view, and that’s Cadence. In Good you have everyone and their mother as a point of view because it’s written in 3rd person. It’s confusing. You’ll be reading and in the thick of a situation both point of views are flying at you. It was annoying. I did get used to it. I was able to follow along fine, but I wish it had been written a little smoother.

Second, Cadence is even more immature and annoying in Better. I mean, why? You have your man. Yeah, your parents are douche nuggets, but that’s always been a given. She makes a ton of mistakes and acts like a spoiled little brat. Again I kept thinking, what the hell does Mark see in her? Besides a sweet young tight pussy.

Third, the religious undertones were no longer undertones. I had no problem with it at all in Good. I do not believe in god. I don’t. It’s my choice, and how I feel. I don’t hate books that follow Christians though because really most people I know in life are. I get it… and I’m not bothered by it. In good, you know that Cadence is Christian. It’s a huge part of who she is and why she struggles with having a secret affair with an older man. In Better, the whole religion aspect comes off as very preachy, and that I’m not okay with. Most of the book was spent with this one or that one discussing how to be a good Christian and why being Christian is good, blah blah blah..

I loved Good the first book in this series. But Better should have been called Just Okay. This book is a prime example of why I don't care for the trend of splitting one story into 2 or more books. Too much time wasted on unnecessary drivel. The conflict went on so long I began to despise Cadence. Everyone in her life told her to get over herself but... Nope, it dragged on. After her brother's incident I thought she'd wise up... Still no. She acted out and behaved like a brat for so long, I was starting to hope Mark would kick her to the curb. They both kept saying she had every right to be that mad.... But she didn't. Mark made a mistake and apologized excessively. I loved these characters and wish more of the story showed them building a life together. The best part was getting a glimpse of their future in the epilogue. Really wish this book had been Better.
