(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 23, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Single Parent/Contemporary Romance

Author: Brit Benson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


I don’t know what I was expecting with this book, but it was so much better than and hit me with so many different emotions that I was blown away and completely captivated by this beautiful story.

I didn’t remember Jesse’s character well from the prior books, but it’s also been a hot minute since I read the last book, with that being said, Nothing Feels Better can be read as a complete standalone and this world and all the characters will still make complete sense.

Jesse Hernandez is fun, flirty, and full of energy and he’s finishing his undergrad and will soon be heading off to med-school in the fall. Jesse has this zest for life and he’s a giant ball of energy, it’s impossible not to like him. When he meets Joselyn, a single mom, with the cutest kids who are drawn to his big ball of happiness it’s really hard to say no to him. Even when she tries to brush him off, understanding she’s overwhelmed with life, Jesse finds he can’t stay away either. He is drawn to Joss like he hasn’t been drawn to anyone else in a really long time.When he sees an opportunity to help, because he actually loves her adorable kids, it allows him time to spend with her and spend time with his emotional support pirate – yes, it’s super, cute thing – so it’s a win-win.

Jocelyn is tired, working to support her two children, going to school to get a better job, and really doesn’t have time to date, but saying no to the enigmatic man who continues to show up and help, which is more than she can say for her ex, well, it’s almost difficult, especially when her kids adore Jesse. She knows she can’t have more than a few weeks with him, he’s leaving for medical school after all, but maybe a few weeks will be enough to last a lifetime. She truly prays it will be enough.

Not only are Jesse and Jocelyn perfect in their growing relationship, which has a lot of emotional pains, but Jocelyn’s children…be still my heart, they are the frosting, sprinkles, and sparklers on top of this delicious story cake. Jude who’s four and June who is eight are the absolute best and the total heart of this entire story. My eyes were misty, or I was busting out laughing every time they were on the page and they were integral to the plot.

Jesse has tons of swagger, but he’s not cocky. He’s compassionate and understanding without being condescending. Jesse is the full package. His found family fits perfectly into Jocelyn’s life and her sweet children adore him and his friends. As June tells him Jesse’s superpower is loving everyone around him and it radiates from every pore.

I could go on and on about him, the brilliant children and how much Joss needed something wonderful in her life, but instead I’ll finish with Nothing Feels Better is one of those books that swoops in when you don’t expect it and can leave a lasting impression. It’s very well done.

Jesse Hernandez has infiltrated my life.

The gorgeous, exciting, genius of a man who hangs out next door.
Who happens to be younger than me.
And in college.
And heading to medical school in just a few short months.

It started innocently enough.
The occasional run-in.
A few chance encounters.
An offer to babysit.
An offer for…more.

But then it snowballed.

Now, I only know two things for certain.
One, for the first time in my entire life, I’m not an afterthought.
And two, this will end very, very badly.

My kids. My job. His future.
It’s all at risk.

Jesse Hernandez has infiltrated my life, and if I’m not careful, we will all be in tatters when he leaves.


Nothing Feels Better is the third interconnected standalone in the Better Love series by Brit Benson.

This single-parent, opposites attract romance is sassy, sexy, and has a guaranteed HEA.

It is not necessary to read the other books in the Better Love series in order to enjoy Nothing Feels Better

Blog Tour – The Player and the Single Mom by Erin McCarthy

When friends-with-benefits turns into friends-with-a-baby-on-the-way…

The Player and the Single Mom, an all-new sizzling sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin McCarthy is available now!

The Player and the Single Mom (The Legends Book 5) by [Erin McCarthy]

It’s supposed to be just a no-strings attached fling with big, brooding, football player Cash Young. He is going to whisk me away for a week in the sunshine while my three kids spend time with their grandparents.

No one screaming, “Mom!” No tears. No absurd homework assignments or problems at the struggling bakery I own, Sugar Lips.

Nothing but cocktails and sexy fun for days with a man I’ll never fall in love with.

It’s not that Cash isn’t a great guy, because he totally is. But he’s way too young for me, and way too country boy calm, with that slow drawl, and his insistence on calling me “ma’am.” He thinks it’s respectful, which it’s not. It’s infuriating. And while we’re friends, we’ll never be anything more than that, with a little hot, headboard-banging sex on the side.

Until two pink lines change everything and Cash wants me to go from single mom to Mrs. Sera Young.

But the biggest surprise of all may be that the unexpected idea has a certain, sexy ring to it…

New Release – Spark of Fate Box Set by Tessa Hale


𝐓𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚 𝐇𝐚𝐥𝐞’𝐬 𝐒𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐅𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐁𝐨𝐱 𝐒𝐞𝐭 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐚 𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐧𝐞𝐰 𝐛𝐨𝐧𝐮𝐬 𝐬𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐊𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐥𝐞 𝐔𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐝!




It was supposed to be a fresh start. A completely blank slate in a place where no one knew about the tragedy that ripped her family apart six months ago. A tragedy Rowan can’t help but blame herself for.

Now the only thing she wants is to blend in. To escape the house that has become more like a prison. Her new school is her only hope. Somewhere she can pretend she’s just like everyone else.

Only Rowan doesn’t realize how unique she is. Holden is the first to recognize it, but he’s not the last.

Rowan can’t explain the draw she feels to the guys who have found their way into her life. The way something seems to spark the first moment she touches each of them. How it almost hurts to walk away from them at the end of each day.

Things are changing, from the ripple of power humming just below her skin to this new family she’s finding herself a part of. But not all of the changes are good.

Someone doesn’t like the power Rowan is stepping into or the bonds she’s forming with the guys who have gifts as rare and strong as her own. And when the truth is revealed, it has the power to burn everything in its wake…

**An epic paranormal romance. Think fated mates, a heroine who has no idea just how special she is, broody, swoony, crazy protective heroes, and a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.**


Author of love stories with magic, usually with more than one love interest. Constant daydreamer.
