Better Luck Next Time (AKA All is fair in love and war)

Better Luck Next Time - I. Ronik

Don't get mad, get even

after catching her husband cheating one too many times, Amber leaves their house (again). But this time is different, the couple has grown apart and Amber is afraid that there is no way back. 

Her weird solution? serve her husband with his own bitter pill, she becomes a high class escort girl. 

Truthfully, I was skeptical about this shortie. The issue of marriage and cheating is never an easy one, and I didn't laugh. 

There is also the fact that the writing style is more on the "tell than show".

Still I would have loved to see a bit more exploring of this book (yeah, this is me saying I'd love a full lengh or at least a longer lengh novel, where there could be more showing). 

but you know what? Amber was a nice enough MC, and I would have loved to see more of Terry and Lucas. The author was sensetive on the intimacy subject, showing how with one person you may feel hollow but with another you may still connect. 

"No matter how you put it. Intimacy is stil intimacy" 

The author had an original solution here, and an interesting idea. all in all I liked it just didn't love it.

Besides, Look at her name- I. Ronik may I say ironic? That shows how cool she is. 

I'll positively read the next novel/novella/shortie/thing she write, she is promising.

A review copy was kindly provided by the author through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
