My Perspective

Colt. New book boyfriend right here. Readers that like strong, romantic, loyal, hard working swoony heroes are going to go crazy for him! This is my favorite hero from Mandi Blake, and I’m pretty sure no other will compare. And talk about a friends to romance troupe – this one is high up on my list. Sweet romances are definitely my jam and I know when Mandi Blake is the brains behind the story I am in for a treat.

Better Together has so many things I want in a contemporary romance. Banter. Faith. Marriage of Convenience. Friendship. Romance. Wonderful secondary characters that add to the charm of the story. And main characters with a past. Though I think both Colt and Remi made a bigger deal then they needed to about their pasts, I could sort of understand it. They chose to define themselves by their family, something we should never do. I know this first hand. But they both grew after circumstances pretty much forced them to, and I thought Blake navigated it perfectly.

Every time I read one of Blake’s stories, it’s automatically my new favorite. BUT I don’t think any of her novels are going to top this one as being my favorite. Remi and Colt are the sweetest couple, and I didn’t want to say goodbye to them. Hopefully they’ll make a cameo in the next book in the series! I highly recommend Better Together for contemporary romance fans. It’s got plenty of chemistry, and a love story that will leave you unable to put the book down.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
