A Better Man by Candis Terry Review!

Meet the Kincade brothers: they’ll do what it takes to protect their legacy—but what happens when love gets in the way?

Hockey star Jordan Kincade wasted no time ditching Sunshine Valley and everyone who mattered for a career in the NHL—a truth Jordan confronts when his parents’ deaths bring him home. Now he’s back to make amends, which begins with keeping his younger sister from flunking out of school. It’s just his luck that the one person who can help is the girl whose heart he broke years ago.

Lucy Diamond has racked up a number of monumental mistakes in her life, the first involving a certain blue-eyed charmer. She has no intention of falling for Jordan Kincade again, but when he shows up asking her to help one of her students, Lucy just can’t say no. Worse, the longer he’s back, the more she sees how much he’s changed. And so when a blistering kiss turns to more, she can’t help but wonder if her heart will be crushed again . . . or if she’ll discover true love with a better man.

4.5 STARS!!
A Better Man is the first book in Candis Terry’s new Sunshine Creek Vineyardseries.  Nicole who is Jordan’s 17 year old sister, like many teens her age, has an attitude problem which seems to be going from bad to worse.  Jordan a hockey star who left home at an early age and never really got to be around Nicole.  Is taking the brunt of her wrath and as he takes a closer look at his role in her life – or non-role, in this case – he can’t help but want to do whatever he can to help her work her way through the tragic loss of their parents. Everyone assumes it’s that loss that has Nicole turned inside out, but it turns out to be much more than that.

Lucy Diamond is a wonderful woman. She’s smart, compassionate, attractive…but trust doesn’t come easy to her. Her past hasn’t defined her, but it has made her very cautious. Too cautious, even to the point of not living her life to its fullest. Part of that has to do with Jordan, but mostly it’s due to an awful marriage to a man she met in college, but barely knew. It’s years later now and she considers herself pretty solid, but with Jordan back in Sunshine Valley she finds herself emotionally thrown off kilter and has to decide if he – or any man – is worth risking her heart to.

I really loved and enjoyed this book. It was a really cute, sweet romantic story that had me hooked from the moment I opened this book. I happen to be a huge hockey fan myself and my team just won the big old Stanley Cup this year (Go Penguins!! :D) So this book really intrigued me with Jordan the main characters being a professional hockey player. I really loved the family bond that all the brothers shared and can't wait to read more of there stories.  I also really loved the author's writing style. Definitely can't wait to read more.
