Tyler Stevens Narrates This One So Much “Better Than Good” – Reviewed by Traci

“People are too complicated to have simple labels.” ― Philip Pullman

Title: Better Than Good

Author: Lane Hayes

Narrator:: Tyler Stevens

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Run Time: 6 Hours, 5 Minutes

Rating: 5 Stars

Blurb: Matt Sullivan understands labels: law student, athlete, heterosexual. He has goals: graduate and begin his career in law. One fateful night, Matt tags along with his gay roommate to a dance club and everything changes. Matt finds himself attracted to the most beautiful man he’s ever seen. All labels go flying out the window.

Aaron Mendez doesn’t believe in labels, and he’s leery of straight curious men. He makes it clear that he’ll hide his fabulous light for no one. While Aaron can’t deny the attraction between him and Matt, he is reluctant to start anything with someone who is still dealing with what this new label means—especially when that someone has a girlfriend.


Review: Loved, Loved, Loved this story. This is my first book by this author and I purchased it on audio before the ebook. This is also my first audio with Tyler Stevens, and he had the perfect voice to represent these characters. Stevens did a wonderful job switching between Matt and Aaron’s voice. I love it when you can picture the characters in your mind from the voices created in the audio books. This was a fairly short audio that I did not stop until I’d finished.

I love the stories where the characters fall in love but have to work for it. Matt Sullivan cannot ignore his attraction to Aaron and is forced to face what he wants verses what is easy. Aaron does not make it easy on Matt and is over dealing with bi-curious men, even though he is obviously attracted to Matt. Matt persistently pursues Aaron and when Aaron starts to open his heart, Matt freaks out.

This story is not tragic, but my heart did break at times for each of the characters. It is a good comfort read, or listen, and definitely worth the purchase. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I am looking forward to the next book in the series to come out on audio, Better Than Chance.
