Better Than Good


A Better Than Story 

Matt Sullivan understands labels: law student, athlete, heterosexual. He has goals: graduate and begin his career in law. One fateful night, Matt tags along with his gay roommate to a dance club and everything changes. Matt finds himself attracted to the most beautiful man he's ever seen. All labels go flying out the window. 

Aaron Mendez doesn't believe in labels, and he’s leery of straight curious men. He makes it clear that he’ll hide his fabulous light for no one. While Aaron can't deny the attraction between him and Matt, he is reluctant to start anything with someone who is still dealing with what this new label means—especially when that someone has a girlfriend.

**4.3 Better Than Good Stars**

This was definitely better than good.

This was outstanding!! I'm truly surprised by how touched and happy I am by this sweet read. From the lovable and amusing the new and fragile love they share. I was simply enchanted by this delightful story.

Matt aka Matty, is straight and has a girlfriend. His priorities are set to graduate, become a lawyer and move on to bigger dreams. But things change for Matt...from a simple glance and an instant attraction he feel towards a stranger. He never imagined that a simple trip to a gay club, with a friend, could change everything so quickly.

Aaron is a ball of energy and the center of everyone's attention. His quirky, funny and... proud to be gay. Aaron won't hide who he is or change for anyone. Not even for the gorgeous Matty...who is yet to understand what he wants, and whether this attraction is simply curiosity.

The two form a friendship, a passionate bond...that flourishes into a deep and yet hesitant relationship .
I had never felt so connected and one with a partner. A wave of feeling, so strong I was weak with it, made me wonder why everything was so much better with Aaron.
Its hard for Aaron to accept that Matty is ready to truly be 'out' and open with him. And Matty, though eager to start this new found journey with Aaron...still carries unresolved baggage, that may come between them.

I was like a drowning man who'd found safety on familiar shore at long last.

Mates a lovely story about new beginnings and unexpected love. I recommend this beautiful story and hope you get the chance to try out this better than good read xx

Thank you Mona xx
