Synopsis from Goodreads
Insta-love only happens in the movies.
Insta-lust? That she’d buy into.
Until she meets take-charge club owner Landon Bennett and falls head over heels at a glance.
When hot as sin Landon Bennet offers sexy songstress Vivienne Clark a summer residency at his popular Manhattan nightclub, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime and she can’t resist. Add in the man’s obvious interest and seductive attention and life is perfect. Until she puts together the pieces of his past. Fate might have brought them together, but is the intimate relationship they’ve been building strong enough to overcome one painful fact. She’s the sister of the man who killed his twin.
Better Than Sexy is an intense, thought-provoking story as well as a passionate romance.
Out of all the people in the world Landon has to fall for the sister of the man, Vic, who was responsible for his twin brother’s death. Although Vivi is nothing like her psychotic brother; she is in fact one of the most caring and empathetic souls, which is why she is willing to forgo the opportunity to progress her singing career in order to avoid causing Landon any more pain.
Landon is completely unaware of Vivi’s connection to Vic on their initial meeting and his subsequent pursuit of Vivi. Despite Vivi’s concerns she accepts the singing residency at ClubTen29 with the intent of keeping a low profile while not performing and hoping the skeletons stay firmly in their closet. However, nothing ever plays out the way we hope and Landon ultimately learns the connection between Vivi and Vic. While his hostility and anger is expected, it is not justified and it is this element that is explored within Better Than Sexy. The fact that individuals are judged by their association to others rather than their own actions. I am sure we have all been guilty of this and of projecting our feelings about one person onto someone else because of their link to the other person. It is a human flaw and one that when logic is applied can easily be rectified. Luckily, Landon is quite adept at self-awareness and analysing his emotions.
While Vic and Vivi may be related they are nothing alike which brings in the nature versus nurture debate and what factors have the most impact on an individual’s identity.
Better Than Sexy concludes the Sexy series with all three of our club owners finding the perfect women for them
