What if the only way to end your marriage was to become the perfect husband?
Wow, what an explosion of mind games this book turned out to be!
When I received a copy of A Better Man, I instantly loved the concept of a crafty husband trying to end his marriage by playing Mr. Perfect so that he could screw over the mother of his children financially. Nick was instantly unlikable, but as the story progressed, Maya, his unsuspecting wife, was just as infuriating. At times when I was devouring every last inch of their destructive relationship, I just wanted to dive into the pages and bash their heads together!
This is a funny and very sharp portrayal of a doomed marriage, with the odd villain thrown in for good measure in the form of Nick’s best friend. There were times when A Better Man kept me on the edge of my seat with frustration, and others when I felt genuinely sad that Nick and Maya were going through their breakdown. But ultimately, as in many real life divorce situations, I just wanted them both to be happy, whether that meant them being together or not.
This is a wonderful exploration of a rather toxic pairing, that at its very worst still manages to show glimmers of hope.
Do Nick and Maya reconcile and work things out? Or do they part ways forever? Only one way to find out… 😉
