Overview

Looking at her potential client, Atlanta image consultant Victoria Sharpe is convinced the job will be a cross between What Not to Wear and Man vs. Wild. She’d love to turn down the offer, but refusing it—not to mention the referrals it could generate—just might break the bank. Yet, agreeing to make over this man’s image might also break her heart. Again.

Max Brown will tolerate anything to gain access to his trust fund. Returning to work in the family business, even submitting to his mother’s demands to trade his comfortable flannel for Armani is worthwhile if he can get the money necessary to start a camp for at-risk boys. But then he sees he’ll be working with Victoria Sharpe, his college girlfriend, the one who got away. Or, really, the one he left. The impression he makes here will be the most important of his life, and the person most as risk is himself.

    Darra¿s Review: This book was an easy read that I through in a

    Darra’s Review:

    This book was an easy read that I through in a couple of days. If you are interested in a light hearted weekend book(Hey, good to read this weekend), this would be a great choice. I liked both characters. Despite what Max did in college.
    Besides Max taking very little interest in running his family’s business, he does have soft spot in his heart and is dedicated to Charity Camp he wants to initiate. Val is a business woman and despite being stuck with her boyfriend that broke her heart, she stays professional. Well, mostly.
    You get the best of both worlds. A hot rugged guy and a hot suit professional man. Loved that.

    I would rate the book a 4.2.

    I give this book 4.5 Stars
    I was given this book for an honest review.




    This book has all the elements of a classical and sweet romance story. 
    A decision made in their youth causing them to separate, again confronted the main characters as they found themselves in a similar situation years later. What will be the outcome? 
    Victoria Sharpe, owner of a image consulting business, agreed to do a makeover to the son of Brown Industries, the largest private owned company in the State, Max Brown. Victoria’s business is suffering financially and this could be her big break, but she and Max have a history she doesn’t want to repeat.
    Max’s mother Julie has her own motives for changing his image. She wants her son to look more like an executive, than a guy that lives in the bush; even though he is more comfortable in his hiking gear. 
    As soon as Victoria met with Max, the flame that was dead for seven years ignited once again. However, she refused to give in, not interested to fall for his charms, and she told herself as much. But as the meetings progressed for the makeover so things of old started to surface again.
    The characters are believable and likeable. Feeling the pain that Victoria had to endure when she was left alone at such a young age. At the end love conquered and the mistakes of the past were rewritten, and the love that they had discovered at a young age wins at last.

    Favorite Quotes: ¿¿he looked like a cool drink of water on a hot

    Favorite Quotes:
    “…he looked like a cool drink of water on a hot day – especially to a woman who’d been in a sexual desert for too many years.”

    “She was certain her hair stood on end from the sparks shooting through her body.”

    “Tori, you might not believe this now, but one day you’ll understand I’m better as a memory than as a poor excuse for a man in your life.”

    My Review:
    A sweet, second chance romance tale, that at times, held bittersweet memories.  A young couple fighting their chemistry due to past grievances and old secrets.  We have all read many books with this theme, but even so, I enjoyed this one.  The novella was short, well crafted, not overly sappy, and relatively mild.  There was only one actual sex scene, but thankfully - it had some sizzle.  An enjoyable and light read for a relaxing afternoon.

    I really enjoyed Better as a Memory, there's a lot of story pack

    I really enjoyed Better as a Memory, there's a lot of story packed into 96 pages!
    Ms. Baxter did solid character development with Victoria and Max, they frustrated me which made the story even better! 
    This is a story of second chances, forgiveness, realizations, steamy attraction and timeless love. It's not just about Victoria and Max however, their families are very much involved as well, especially Max's.
    I will continue following Marilyn Baxter, her first novella 'Tea for Two' was also very good and a lot of story packed into it. I'm hoping she will write a full length novel, I'm betting it would be excellent!!
