Better Than Before by Kathryn Shay

Better than Before (, #1)Better than Before by Kathryn Shay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wealthy Spence Wickham doesn't believe in happily ever after, especially since he has two filed marriages to prove it. When his brother asks him to invest in his high end dating website, he balks but comes up with a plan to prove it is a complete waste of time. He makes two personas one himself and one a run of the mill construction worked, he gets six responses to each and invitations to move the relationship forward past the email communication and he wins. However Spence never planned on the intriguing allure of Annie Hopkins. There is not a fake bone in her personality, she lays it out there and is looking for a normal guy. The problem is she is falling for Spence the construction worker and when she finds out he is the type of man she purposely stayed clear of he may lose her forever.

I was torn between a 3 or 4 star review, ended up in the middle. The beginning draws the reader in. I was eager to see where the relationship between Spence and Annie was heading, but then it dragged once she finds out the truth. Annie kind of transformed from this sweet woman to snarly, I thought the overall concept was wonderful but it just didn't click for me like I wanted it too.
