Better - Carey Heywood

Aubrey is embarking on a bucket list trip around the world, the last wish of her Aunt Ally. It was supposed to be the trip Ally would take when she got better. Now it's just a chance for Aubrey to say goodbye.
Adam escapes in his solo trips overseas, working just enough to fund the next one. When the opportunity to circle the globe falls in his lap he can't refuse. The only catch, he won't be traveling alone this time.
Unable to hide from each other Adam's overprotective nature thwarts Aubrey's desire to find her own way. Can they move past initial assumptions to find something better?

First I have to start with THIS BOOK IS FLIPPING AMAZING!!!!!! Carey has the tendency to make me go into a roller coaster of emotions, and this was not an exception.
I had the wonderful privilege to be a beta reader of her so I read it last year, and it was on my favorite list of books I read in 2013, but I’m sure that this book is gonna be one of the best books you’re gonna read on 2014. This is by far the best book I have read from this author, very emotional yet wonderful story.
You can see from the first page that this book is going to be really good and as you turn the pages you will see how personal is this book just by the way she wrote it.

Aubrey is a character that if you have felt the lost by cancer of someone you love you will feel for her and you will heal with her. Talking about emotions, there is a poem here, a poem I still can’t read, I still cry when I think about and I will always keep safe in my heart. The poem Aunt Ally wrote (which you will read soon ;)) this poem was so hard to read because it made me face emotions I never wanted to face, emotions I hide because I just didn’t want to feel them. But as I read the poem I made peace with myself and mourn my lost of that special because of a cancer or they were taken away from me out of nowhere.

"… I was tired, I'm now at peace."
Out of the emotions, this book is wonderful, Adam, sexy Adam, you will fall in love with him, he is in this trip with Aubrey and he has this need to protect her, that will make you want someone as caring as him. Because Carey is like that, making this guys hot and caring, the perfect combination but never to the point of feeling that they don’t exist but to the point of feeling that you will find someone like him maybe even better.

"We shouldn’t waste the time we have together."
"But I'm scared I'll get hurt." I admit, losing myself in his grey eyes. They darkened. "I won’t hurt you."

You should really buy this book to found the story between Aubrey and Adam and how special is Aunt Ally. A big congratulations to Carey for writing this amazing book, inspired by his friend. I’m pretty sure he is watching you with a smile, he must be proud of you right now cause this is a story that deserves all the awards and I will keep forever in my thoughts.
