For over two years, the object of Keri Walker’s desire has seen her as nothing more than a valuable employee and a good friend. Lusting after a man who doesn’t see her as dating material is frustrating, but not being able to help him heal is breaking Keri’s heart. Why couldn’t the man see that she wanted to be there for him in every possible way?

Richie Davidson hasn’t been the same since his fiancé died and he isn’t sure dating is a good idea. It wasn’t that he lacked opportunity so much as he lacked quality women to choose from. Richie wanted a sweet and giving woman who understood him. Keri was the only woman who knew how to handle him, and lately Richie had been fantasizing about her handling him in bed.

I am a total sucker for a steamy boss and employee romance that entices you from the first page and So Much Better is this kind of story. When Richie and Keri kiss for the first time, I was tickled pink. It took Richie a long time to realize the treasure he had in Keri but when the bell finally dinged, Richie was all about getting his woman. I wanted to jump onto the pages and push the two together myself in several scenes. I felt like Richie and Keri were old friends because I knew them so well. A few moments had me fearful that Richie had messed up his future with Keri but fortunately, that didn’t happen. Richie’s brother and Keri’s best friend were excellent supporting characters and I am dying to see a romance between them. They were both too vibrant to disappear. Hopefully Marie Rochelle will grace readers with their story, because I know they will make a couple readers will cheer for, just like Keri and Richie.
