Keisha Jonesí life has been in chaos for many years.  Every since she got married during her freshman year in college, Keisha has been on a steep downhill roller coaster ride with no relief in sight.  After ten years of living with an abusive husband, Keisha finally found the courage to break free with the support of a dear girlfriend.  And then the unthinkable happened, Keishaís boss was murdered and the police homicide department has pegged Keisha as the prime suspect.  And, if that wasnít enough to deal with, Keisha becomes entangled in a love triangle with two very handsome men with their own personal agenda for chasing her.  One of her pursuers is her suave, dashing co-worker, Rayford Molten and the other is her old flame, Detective Orlando Laban.  Will Keisha be able to choose The Better Man and clear her name of murder before it is too late?

The Better Man is an intriguing story filled with mystery, romance and super-hot drama.  The many twists and turns within this plot definitely kept me on my toes.  Once the true villain identity was exposed, I found myself eagerly flipping the pages to discover the reasoning as to why the murder was committed.  The other main focal point of this book was the love triangle excitement between Keisha, Rayford and Orlando.  As you can imagine because of her extensive abusive past, Keisha had very low self-esteem issues and didnít feel worthy or comfortable with any manís show of interest in her.  And, for that reason, Keisha was torn between the heated attractions coming from both men.  Nevertheless, by the conclusion I am proud to say that Keisha was successfully able to choose The Better Man for herself.
