⭐⭐⭐ (3.5 Stars)
This was not what I was expecting. I guess that from the cover and blurb I thought this would be a deeply emotional love-triangle story, that went on for years, full of angst, etc.
The Better Man ended up being almost a coming of age story for Savannah Peters. And I say coming of age, because my interpretation is that Savannah still had a naive view of the world and relationships, and she needed to believe in herself in order to grow and break free from toxic patterns.
It’s pretty clear from the beginning who the better man is, there’s clearly no competition. So, this is less a love-triangle and more you rooting for Savannah to realize how abusive the other guy is.
I don’t know, I guess I just went into this with some high expectations and couldn’t truly connect with the story when they weren’t met. I did really like the true love interest though. He was the sweetest and reading his chapters was the highlight of the book.
