Love, Only Better is a women’s fiction novel written by Paulette Stout. The story starts with Rebecca who struggles with self-esteem from her failed past relationships with men. For a long time, she has held her little secret to herself, a flaw that has turned many men away from her. That was until she met Kyle, who moved in across the hall from her apartment. Her determination to make things work with Kyle led to a journey of self-discovery and self-love. After all, the most important thing to do before you love someone is to love yourself. Love, Only Better explores in-depth the topic of women’s inability to reach orgasm during sexual intercourse.
Paulette Stout brings awareness to women’s complicated sex life through her book Love, Only Better. I really enjoyed reading Rebecca’s character development, how she went from a shy nobody going through the motions of life, to a strong and empowering woman who could climb Mount Everest. Her past relationships clearly outline the negative impact on Rebecca’s life that many women can relate to, especially when it comes to the verbal abuse and constant frustration. Rebecca sets an excellent example that women shouldn’t be ashamed of finding ways to mediate sexual frustration, even if it seems unconventional. I also appreciate the character building around Kyle, who at first openly finds it weird but eventually warms up to and supports Rebecca’s journey. I would recommend this book to any woman facing the same issue as Rebecca, and I believe that Love, Only Better can open up many hearts and minds about a difficult topic like this.
