    1 thought on “Better Than Safe

    1. Better Than Safe is my favorite book in this series since Better Than Good, and takes place four years after the first book and two years after the third Paul, the first person narrator of this story, was Curt s potential love interest in book 3 before Curt met Jack Paul is now friends with Aaron and Curt, so we get to briefly revisit with all the couples This was fun, and I enjoyed reading about Aaron and Matt s upcoming adventure Paul is 35, British, and uptight He s a successful fashion ad ex [...]

    2. Well.I ended up liking this one a lot than I thought I would Needless to say, it wasn t my favorite of the series Both MCs frustrated me a times throughout the book, but by the end everything came together Paul s the older, broody, stuck in his ways fashion designer Seth is the younger, flighty, gets lost in the moment model and aspiring artist Their first date is nothing short of disastrous There was a lot of push and pull and back and forth Seth frustrated me in the beginning I found him to b [...]

    3. Better Than Safe is the story of two very different men who fall in love Paul is 35 and set in his ways Seth is the 24 year old artist Paul is drawn to despite all his fears of pursuing a relationship with him Past hurts in Paul s life make him believe they will never work What I loved Paul There was something about him that I found very endearing At first glance you might think him a bit stodgy but he was anything but I know he described Seth as a quandary, but he was a bit of a quandary himsel [...]

    4. This was my favorite Hayes story to date Paul is the ad exec for the fashion industry who s been traveling for years the book is told entirely from his POV He s ready to slow down Seth is the model who paints so he can breathe These two are set up on a date by Aaron from Book 1 The coffee date is an absolute flop Seth is late Paul gets cheetoh residue on his fancy shirt from the rambunctious toddler in front of him And Seth keeps talking about wanting to have Aaron set them up because of Paul s [...]

    5. I am going to be so unpopular with my review I am so conflicted in my feelings for this book On one hand, I enjoyed quite a few parts On the other I didn t really care about either MC I didn t like Seth at the very beginning, and Paul was quite boring Paul s inner dialogue got to be fairly repetitious The story would start to become enjoyable then BAM Right back to the same issues over and over I will also admit that a couple of the smexy scenes were a bit repetitious, as well I would swear that [...]

    6. 3.5 StarsI ll admit I went into this not having very high expectations and maybe that wasn t fair or kind of me, but I can also admit that I was proved wrong because I really enjoyed this.Like Paul, I was a bit put off, a lot bewildered, but utterly and hopelessly charmed by Seth He was quite the unconventional character, definitely not your standard romantic interest who never acted in a predictable manner He was a little off kilter and impetuous and he was a thing to behold I don t blame Paul [...]

    7. One of my top go to m m contemporary romance writers in the genre, Lane Hayes always keeps me engrossed by creating engaging, three dimensional characters whose combustible chemistry never fails to deliver the type of sizzling on page sexual tension I absolutely love well as some mighty fine man loving And with the pairing this time of the slightly mature, touch prickly at times, Brit Paul Fallon and part Native American Seth Landau, the gloriously unpredictable, sex on a stick, gorgeous young m [...]

    8. I wanted to love this one, but I had a really hard time Paul was very stuffy, but Seth man, he was all over the place I nearly DNF d after reading the first chapter because I couldn t see how anyone in their right mind would give Seth a second date He was late and then rude He interrupted constantly and made everything about him He was an awful date But I kept reading And though I was able to get to know Seth a bit and he seemed like a decent enough guy, he was still undependable, self absorbed [...]

    9. No one is really safe in this life You aren t alive if you ve never been hurt And you ll never really live again unless you take a chance So you know what I get for being all judgemental and mean An enjoyable read is what It had members and it had Curt but neither really took away from the overall story which was engaging and fabulously easy reading It also had Seth I think Seth is my new favourite Lane Hayes character He is complicated and flaky and came off as rude at times but as the book pro [...]

    10. 3.50 stars.This book was my least favorite of the Better Than series We meet Paul Fallon earlier in Better Than Friends, and he carries that stiff British upper lip into Better Than Safe Cashmere sweater wearing Paul is set up with model guitar player artist Seth by Aaron, who else and their first coffee date is a disaster A second chance encounter brings them together and wild hot sex ensues, but I felt their relationship lacks that undeniable hot something that Jack Curt and Jay Peter had in a [...]

    11. 4.5 stars This is my favorite book of Lane Hayes after.Very engaging story, I was hooked from the start and my interest never diminished.Paul is British, too uptight, too organized, too standoffish He s a successful businessman and every little thing in his life has its place.Seth is the complete opposite He s a model artist guitarist He s too impulsive, sometimes snarky or even rude and at first glance uncultured But first impressions are not always right.Their first meeting is a disaster and i [...]

    12. 2.5 starsMEH.See Valerie s review for elaborate opinion because she basically said what I thought about this book.And seriously, with all the issues that Paul and Seth have throughout the book and that rushed resolution plus the fact that I truly disliked them as a couple I couldn t even imagine them together in happily ever after shrugs.Note to SelfAfter reading three Lane Hayes s books within few days, I come to conclusion that while I can enjoy her romance despite the hits and misses rating [...]

    13. Loved this one Thank God that evil stinker Simon Pickard didn t succeed in completely breaking Paul and Seth up, they were great together The next story A Kind of Truth features Seth s best friend, Rand and a sexy genderbender named Will 4.5 stars.Oh, there is a little Paul and Seth freebie on Lane s website, and once A Kind of Truth comes out, a little freebie featuring Rand will appear.

    14. The 4th part of the Better Than series.Seth is kind of excentric, he s a model, an occasional guitarist, and a painter.Paul works in fashion, he loves the chaotic atmosphere and constant challenges In his private life he loves it quiet and peacefull.Then quirky and flighty Seth breaks through the walls around his heartLoved the guys and enjoyed the book Recommended.

    15. I struggled with this one The characters confounded me at first Then I really loved the direction the story took But I couldn t really organize my thoughts to rate and review And then I read Dani s awesome review, and she totally summed it up with her astute observation yes, I m quoting you, friend Seth seems like a mess volatile, evasive, scattered But Paul is not the most reliable of narrators, and it slowly dawned on me that it s not Seth who s falling apart Overall, a very enjoyable and sexy [...]

    16. Could not warm to Paul and his somewhat snobbish regimented character Seth was totally opposite, flighty and unreserved They just didn t gel as a couple for me.

    17. While visiting Aaron at a magazine fashion shoot, Paul spots beautiful model Seth, who he finds staring back at him from across the room Paul is drawn to the young man, and he and Seth meet again when they are set up on a coffee date by Aaron This doesn t go so well In fact it s probably the worst coffee date in the history of coffee dates, but they ll get their chance again I ll be honest, I LOVED Seth, and his character made this book a 5 star read for me I wish the book had been in his POV I [...]

    18. 4.5 Stars No one is really safe in this life You aren t alive if you ve never been hurt It felt like a long time since I had been in the world of Better Than , Lane Hayes s very enjoyable creation I noticed my enjoyment level increasing with each successive book in the series, although after the third installment, Jay and Peter were still my favorite couple and book I couldn t wait to see what Paul and Seth were going to bring.Seth and Paul intrigued me greatly, but for completely different reas [...]

    19. 4.5 starsaudio version I really, really liked this book This ended up being a well done romance and there were quite a few things I liked about it Paul is the narrator and he gets set up with Seth by a friend Seth is much younger and at first glance doesn t seem to have his act together As the story unfolds though we realize Seth is so much than he initially seemed I fell for Seth right along with Paul At first I thought he was kind of charming but a PITA and way too much trouble but by the end [...]

    20. I have a friend from childhood who once explained Sunny I to someone as being two very likable people but together well I hated them both That is Paul and Seth I felt both brought out the worst in each other Paul was moody and unsure of himself with Seth He appeared to be the guy who was going to forever need to be reassured He was always going to question whether his relationship was an unhealthy repeat of his parents and question the longevity or stability Why are you here.hopefully he finds t [...]

    21. Answer Want to readQuestion What is anything written by Lane Hayes ETA 3.5 4.0 White knuckled StarsWhoa What a ride I can t say that I loved it It was too uncomfortable but maybe that was the point I don t know I will say that I was riveted I was irritated and aggravated being pushed and pulled throughout the story And, Seth was a challenge for me Man, he pissed me off He was rude, obnoxious, and a complete jackass Paul s fascination with him sometimes disgusted me But I could never bring myself [...]

    22. WOW Just WOW LOVE this book The last paragraph in the book spoke to me as it will to most people No one is really safe in this life You aren t alive if you ve never been hurt And you ll never really live again unless you take a chance I am a firm believer the best things in life come along when you aren t looking and when you finally give up the notion it s better to be safe Just brilliant

    23. It drives me nuts when I go back and look at an old 3 star review where I wrote nothing So I m trying not to do that, but honestly, I don t have anything to say It was fine I liked it I didn t love it.

    24. Love this author s writing This was a sophisticated pairing with lots of emotional depth The sex scenes pretty much melted the screen of my kindle.

    25. Find the meaning of the actRemember how it goesEvery time you take to waterYou swim against the flowAnd the world is all around usAnd the days are flying pastAnd fear is so contagiousBut I m not afraid to laughI could go at anytimeThere s nothing safe about this lifeI could go at anytime The lyrics to this Neil Finn song became a refrain as I was reading this book, the last entry in the BETTER THAN series, because it s what Paul learns in the course of his stumbling kicking and screaming into lo [...]

    26. We met Paul as one of the men Curt was dating before committing to his now boyfriend Jack Paul is British, travels a lot and has been in a dating rut He s decided to cut back on his travelling and that it s time he find someone serious to date.Aaron introduces Paul to the model, Seth At first blush there is nothing about Seth that appeals to Paul but his looks He s late for their first date, cavalier and snide, and too young But there s something about him Seth has been hurt before and is not in [...]

    27. A Joyfully Jay review 4.5 starsBetter Than Safe is the fourth book in the Better Than series It could be read on its own, but I have also enjoyed the connections of friends that have been made throughout the series This series has also been enhanced for me through the fabulous narration provided by Tyler Stevens.The book is told from Paul s POV He works hard and, while he has fulfilled his dream of moving to America from England, many still see him as a reserved Brit Paul likes things to be on h [...]

    28. Paul and Seth what is there to say How about, OMG ALL THE FABULOUS Seriously, this series hasn t faulted yet Each is spot on and crisp Each character s slight complexity is relatable and the execution of every situation is flawless Seth is an artist in every way Body, heart, mind, soul Paul is not fond of the whole artist thing But this story shows what we perceive as toxic for ourselves sometimes is our salve As usual, Lane had me in tears My bottom lip is all chapped from worrying it and I m t [...]

    29. 3.5 rounded up because I adored Seth Paul was okay, I liked him much than I did in the last book but he was so busy trying for stability that he basically blinded himself to happiness The fact that Seth was actually so mature at such a young age was a nice switch to the popular stereotype that early mid twenties means vapid I sort of wanted some revenge on the bad guy from the past and there were enough dangling overall hints at the other couples to make me want to actually see the things that [...]
