Destiny is fiercely independent and devoted to the music world. She is working hard to build a career as a writer in a world that no longer wants print materials. Brian is her brother's best friend and she has known him for years. A chance trip to New Orleans where they find themselves at the same time allows Brian to follow his heart and show Destiny that he wants to be more than friends. As this new relationship grows, the unthinkable happens to Destiny and she now has to find a way back to herself. Brian is amazing as the compassionate, patient and devoted boyfriend. He has loved her for years but how long can he keep this up? Will Destiny ever get past her trauma and let him in? Or will he have to find a way to move on without her? I have to be honest, I didn't see this one coming when I started the book (I won't give it away) but WOW, what a compelling story. You feel everything Destiny is going through and struggling to overcome. I may have wanted her to move faster but that's not how life works. Brian is just fabulous. Together their a great pair if Destiny can get past her issues.

This is a sweet and realistic love story This is a sweet and realistic love story, a story of overdue love. Brian Jace is in love with his best friend, Destiny Michaels. He has been secretly in love with her for as long as he can remember. The story starts off predictably with him making small moves to reveal his true feelings for her and getting her to feel them out as a couple without pushing and scaring her away. Destiny has been burned in the past. She is now guarded, protective of her heart and emotions. Afraid of the unknown. Just when she decides maybe they both can make a go at a relationship together, she’s met with tragedy. Now the aftermath has to be faced. We begin the journey with Destiny. With her spirit shattered, she learns to cope and we wait to see how she continues to move ahead in spite of. Brian is there, he’s always there, and he’s that force that anyone going through anything needs in their corner. Love is patient, love is kind and so is Brian. Can Destiny allow him in? Can she admit that there isn’t anyone more deserving to be in her life but Brian? The author is brilliant with describing that white noise: the part of the book where conversation isn’t taking place but you are in tune with the story. She gives the characters dimension; she brings them to life in a unique way. To the outside world, Destiny can appear selfish, but the reader understands and allows her to be. And when Destiny’s heart breaks, the reader’s heart breaks, as well. It is difficult not to cry with and for her. You pray Brian is just a little more patient so that he is present during her breakthrough. -Reviewed by Sophie

APB Perspective Review: Better than Okay was such a great read. The characters were well written and I just felt drawn into the whole story because of how believable the characters were. Throughout it, I was rooting for Destiny and Brian as if they were my friends, and I was experiencing their emotions, especially Destiny's, as it connected with my experiences in life. Great book!
