"Come on, Jonah. You and I are just friends, and my living with you would only be temporary. I’m neat and fairly low-maintenance, and I really can cook like a boss. I know you like your space.” It was a euphemism, and if the smile poking at the corners of her lips was anything to go by, Natalie knew it as well as Jonah did. He was a freaking island, and it wasn’t by accident. “So I can totally stay out of your hair if you want me to. But please.” In a blink, her smile disappeared. “I’m begging you. Don’t make me stay with my parents.”
Jonah’s nice-guy propensity came out of hiding to pick a fight with his defenses, both of them quickening his pulse. His defenses didn’t fight fair, though, reminding him that he had damn good reasons for not being a long-haul guy.
He opened his mouth to say he was sorry. To tell Natalie, rationally and with good reason, why he just couldn’t let her move in with him for six weeks.
But what came out was, “Okay. You can stay.”
Christ, his inner nice-guy was a sneaky son of a bitch.
“Really?” Natalie let out a gasp that quickly slid into an adorable ear-to-ear grin, and okay, Jonah was going to have to do some damage control here.
“With a couple of stipulations,” he said, holding up his fingers to count them off. “If you want to watch rom coms or that channel that plays all those gooey holiday movies, you’ve got to do it on your iPad.”
Jonah knew from experience that she loved both, and with Christmas only a month away, she’d certainly want to mainline them whenever she had down time. But while happily ever after might be on some people’s agendas—and more power to them as long as they didn’t try to convert him to coupledom—he sure as hell wasn’t going to let it parade across his big screen TV.
“Come on! Not even It’s a Wonderful Life?” she asked, but he stood firm.
“The only Christmas movie that flies in my apartment is Diehard.”
Her hands moved to her hips. “That is so not a Christmas movie.”
“Take it or leave it, Kendrick. Yippie-ki-yay is all the holiday cheer you’re going to get out of me.”
Natalie frowned, but didn’t push her luck, so Jonah continued. “I’ll take that you cook, I clean bargain. I don’t mind doing all the dishes, and I wasn’t kidding when I said I can’t cook. No complaining about football or hockey—the Rogues are kicking ass again this year on the ice and I want to watch every game that I can. And for the love of all that it sacred and good, no bras on the shower curtain rod.”
His surprise must have stumbled over his face, because she laughed and tacked on, “What? You know I love hockey, too, and after meeting Finn Donnelly over the summer at that fundraiser at The Crooked Angel? I’m all-in for the Rogues. I promised you I’d cook, and the other stuff”—she lifted one shoulder beneath her light pink sweater—“I can stipulate, even if it is kind of grinchy. So, do we have a deal? I can come live with you until this mess is all fixed?”
Jonah exhaled. “Yes, we have a deal.

Better Than Me is the second book in the Remington Medical series from Kimberly Kincaid. I adored the first book in this series and really didn't think Ms. Kincaid could top it, and I'm happy to say I was so wrong. Better Than Me is absolutely my favorite book ever from Ms. Kincaid.
I loved everything about getting Jonah and Natalie's story. The best friends-to-lovers troupe is a favorite of mine and it was done so well in Better Than Me. Jonah is a known commitment phobe. He loves to play the field and absolutely never brings anyone back to his apartment. Natalie is pretty much a workaholic who always looks for the bright side of everything (very much a Pollyanna). However, when Natalie has a mishap with her apartment and needs a place to stay, she immediately turns to her best friend Jonah. I seriously laughed out loud at all of his initial excuses why Natalie should try and find somewhere else to stay. It was so freaking comical especially since Natalie could counter each and every reason.
I absolutely loved that Jonah and Natalie were truly best friends before their relationship changed to a physical one. They had the best relationship and I honestly felt like them becoming lovers only brought they closer. They both seemed to share more about their pasts and their fears once they made love for the first time. I fell in love with this couple right along with them. Ms. Kincaid took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions with Better Than Me. One minute I was laughing out loud and the next I was sobbing my eyes out. I love a book that pulls so many emotions from me, and Better Than Me did it in spades.
Better Than Me was a wonderful addition to the Remington Medical series. I am already counting down the days until we get to head back to Remington Medical for the next book in the series. I highly recommend Better Than Me for fans of contemporary romance books.
