A Better Man The Men of Halfway House book 1
                                             by: Jaime Reese: reviewed by Becky

Matthew Doner is starting over. After a five-year prison term that alters every aspect of his life, he receives a bequest from his aunt with the stipulation that he use the money to make things right. Breaking free of the long-standing role he's played and inspired by the few who support him, he decides to create a safe place where people like him can find purpose and start a new life. 

Julian Capeletti likes challenges. He is confident, brash, stubborn, and just what Matt needs. Desperate for work after a downturn of luck, he accepts the job to renovate Matt's crumbling building. 

Over the course of a year, romance simmers between them as they restore the house. But there's a bigger renovation that must take place in their hearts. To become better men, they need to learn to trust each other even with secrets and painful memories they fear may rip them apart.

A Better Man is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I really loved the by-play between Matt and Julian, the attraction between them was instant, but they danced around each other and tried to deny the attraction at first. It is a good author indeed that can hold your attention through chapters of sexual tension! Then when it explodes watch out that you don't get singed from the heat! Add in secrets, and a mother I wouldn't wish on my worse enemy, and you have the recipe for an stunning read! I highly recommend this book, you will be thoroughly entertained, and running to by the 2nd book in the series! Thank you Jaime, for a read to enjoy through the ages.
