Author: Brit Benson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Better With You is hot, emotional and thought provoking. A truly sensational read for a new author to me.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster. As I sat down and buckled in the book immediately took me on a ride that was fantastic. I experienced passion and anger, plus I was right there for all the shock and hurt while dying for the second chance between these two lovers and melting for all the romance. The descriptions of the baked goods was mouth watering and then the tears….do you know how hard it is to read while crying? The last several chapters had me weeping over and over again. Every moment was perfect and it is easy to say that I will be reading Brit Benson again.

Bailey and Riggs come from two different worlds and yet they share one fierce passion, baking. They also have several similar interests, but it’s baking that actually brings them together and also sort of pulls them apart.

Bailey doesn’t trust easily and when Riggs breaks that trust he has a mountain to climb, but when Bailey lets down her fortress of a forcefield she realizes that her mountain might be a molehill and she might end up losing the best thing she’s ever had.

This is the kind of story that will stick with you long after you’ve read it, but prepare with lots of tissues when you do.


Riggs Stanton is a thief.

He’s also a liar, a jerk, and a playboy jock.
Sure, I might have thought we had a connection.
I might have thought he was worth breaking my “no dating” rule.
He might have even given me the best orgasm I’ve ever experienced to date.
But it was a farce.
A trick.
Another lie.
And I don’t make mistakes twice.

Now he says he needs me.
One week of my help and I never have to deal with him again.
For ten grand, I can suffer anything for seven days.
Even Riggs Stanton.


The more time I spend with him, the more I get to know him, the more I question myself.
What if what we shared before was real, and it’s everything else that’s fake?

**Better With You is the second interconnected standalone in the Better Love series by Brit Benson.

This enemies to lovers new adult romance is sassy, sexy, and has a guaranteed HEA.

It is not necessary to read Love You Better before enjoying Better With You, though this book will contain minor spoilers for book one.
