Overview

“Kathryn Shay knows how to pack an emotional wallop.” Booklist

In her brand new RIGHTMATCH.COM trilogy, (BETTER THAN BEFORE, WAITING FOR YOU, MEANT TO BE), Kathryn Shay tackles some of her trademark emotional issues: the dangers of online dating, deception, divorce, disabilities, domestic violence and raising children, all framed by three brothers who finally find their soul mates! Based on the premise, “Everybody lies on these sites,” the stories show how a lie told between each couple can have devastating effects!

In BETTER THAN BEFORE, charismatic and super rich venture capitalist Spence Wickham makes a bet with his brother to join an online dating service and prove people lie on these sites. But his deceit trips him up with sweet and generous Annie Hopkins who’s looking for the type of man he’s pretending to be. When the truth comes out, Spence must find a way to make Annie love him for the man he is.

“Another winner by Kathryn Shay! The online dating stuff is fascinating! I loved the characters - flaws and all. Reading this book I ran the emotional gamut - was mad as hell at what characters did, moved to tears in some scenes, laughed out loud and cheered. The love scenes gave me a case of the vapors. This book tackles some powerful issues, and leaves the reader feeling good about humankind and the power of love. I can't wait for the next one in the series!” A Barnes and Noble Reader

    Too long

    ## Let me start by saying, this couple couldn't have been less suited for each other. Nothing in common and absolutely no chemistry. The heroine was so uptight, it really annoyed me. And after the secret was revealed, all the couple did was fight. The whole story seemed unbelievable, that he would still want to be with her, with her constant nagging and criticising. Sorry, but this heroine was too much and the book needed to be about 100 pages shorter (less fighting). I was excited at first to read the next stories about the brothers, but after this I won't bother!

    Another winner by Kathryn Shay! The online dating stuff is fascinating! I loved all the characters - flaws and all. Shay has a way to develop such real characters, lets them screw up, realize their mistakes and emerge as even better people. Reading this book I ran the emotional gamut - was mad as hell at what characters did, moved to tears in some scenes, laughed out loud and cheered. The love scenes gave me a case of the vapors. This book tackles some powerful issues, and leaves the reader feeling good about humankind and the power of love. All this for $3.99 - such a deal. I can't wait for the next one in the series! (I don't know what book the other reviewer could have read)

    Exhausting. I like the premise of the book. The beginning was interesting. But once Annie finds out about Spence's secret she becomes so annoying. I can't imagine whe he would want to be with her. She criticizes his every move even the most innocent of intentions. Unfortunately all of her insecurities from her previous marriage get carried over into this relationship. I had hoped she either got over his initial lies or just moved on to another relationship. I only finished the book to see how it ended. save yourself some time and read something else.
