Aadon’s friends who were supportive and fiercely loyal. The mother in me really cried for a young Ricky, and that was the hardest part in reading Better. For those who had to endure the horrific pain they went through. Why is it that the females in these stories make me cringe?

There are some details that are never revealed, but this is balanced with enough information to get the picture and a recognition that those details aren’t necessary to engage with the plot and the characters and understand what they are going through.

To be honest, he was more messed up than Jesse. Even though the book is dark in places dealing with rape, sexual abuse, BDSM gone wrong, and the devastation they leave behind, Jaime’s bold presentation of betterr story and uaime tough issues it tackles are well worth the angst.

That’s the only way that they can move forward. Aadon has a good heart, but what gives him problems is that he wants to fix both his brother and Jesse and it frustrates him because he can’t. May 03, KimberlyRose rated it it was ok. Some readers might think the drama is too much few times I also think so but I also find it engaging. After filing charges that put his abusive ex-Dom behind bars, Jesse Turbul relocates halfway across the country, hoping to escape his past—but, of course, it’s never that easy.


Jamie did a great job avoiding easy solutions or turning either of her leading men into stereotypes.

Thanks, Jaime, for an emotional, but enlightening read! Came Upon a Midnight Clear. This novel is mainly dealing with two people who have baggage in their life and how they are working through that.
