Better Blog Tour

Title: Better (Too Good #2)
Author: S. Walden
Expected Release: November 19, 2013
Hosted By: Romance Addict Book Blog -

Their relationship has been exposed, and now their lives are changed forever.

For Cadence Miller, the fast track to adulthood proves intimidating and frustrating. She’s a little girl lost—abandoned by her parents and uncertain of her future. She doesn’t think she “fits” anywhere. She’s eighteen. She wants to be older. And the result is both comical and heartbreaking.

Mark Connelly will do anything to provide Cadence a stable, loving home—to be her protector. But he’s just as broken and lost, and his heart won’t let go of his past so easily. He knows he must share his secret with Cadence. And he hopes his revelation won't tear them apart. He hopes it will draw them closer, and make their love better.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Better, could also have been appropriately name the AFTER MATH. I love how Walden never leaves anything left on the table. She scores home run after home run with her books. Candace is still dealing with the consequences of her and Marks choices, no one said it would be easy. When secrets come to light and things begin to spiral even more out of control, we have to wonder if things can ever get BETTER? Maybe 10 years is to big of an age difference? I LOVE that Waldens keeps Canadaces reactions to that of a normal teenager, and that she didn't magically transform into a 28 year old mature woman, because that would have been unrealistic. I don't want to give too much away because Better packs a few punches that are better left to be discovered as you read and not spoiled in a review just know Waldens books get BETTER AND BETTER!!

S. Walden used to teach English before making the best decision of her life by becoming a full-time writer. She lives in Georgia with her very supportive husband who prefers physics textbooks over fiction and has a difficult time understanding why her characters must have personality flaws. She is wary of small children, so she has a Westie instead. Her dreams include raising chickens and owning and operating a beachside inn on the Gulf Coast (chickens included). When she's not writing, she's thinking about it.

She loves her fans and loves to hear from them. Email her at and follow her blog at where you can get up-to-date information on her current projects.

Cadence scanned the lobby for her freshmen orientation group. Dozens of students loitered about, chatting and laughing. They all seemed to have friends already. How? How did they make friends so quickly if they were new?
Her face fell. The panic set in instantly, and she considered turning on her heel and darting out of the building. Everything was foreign and huge and scary all of a sudden. She didn’t think she had the guts to go to college.
“You look a little freaked out,” someone said beside her.
Her face shot up and saw him grin at her. He pulled on the straps of his book bag to tighten them, then adjusted the baseball cap on his head.
“I am,” Cadence replied. No point in lying about it. She knew her face was drained of color.
“It’s no big deal,” the boy said. He waved his hand around. “See? Just a building. Those people over there? Just people. Whatever, right?”
Cadence cracked a smile. “I’m still scared.”
The boy took off his hat. “Okay. I never do this for anyone.” He looked at Cadence and then adjusted the strap on the back of his cap. He placed it on her head.
She looked at him confused.

“That hat right there is magic, okay? It’s my lucky cap. I’ve had it for ten years.”
