Title: Make it Last
Author: Megan Erickson
Series: Bowler University #3
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication: January 6th, 2014 by William Morrow Impulse
After graduating from Bowler University, the last place Cam Ruiz ever expected to find himself is his hometown. A bad job as a bouncer and worry over his mom’s health make living in Paradise anything but. There’s only one thing that can make his return any harder—running into the only girl he’s ever loved.
Tate Ellison made a mistake when she was eighteen, one that cost her the best thing she’s ever had. She’s always hoped the regret of losing Cam would fade over time. Too bad it’s only grown. She took comfort in the fact she’d never have to face him again, so his presence in Paradise throws her for a loop.
The pull between them is instant and when the truth of what happened years ago tumbles out, they share a mind-blowing kiss...which leads to more. But the past has a way of repeating itself. When all the cards are on the table, Cam and Tate must decide what they are willing to do to make it last.
★★★★ 1/2 stars
I've been wanting to know about Cam from the moment I met him in Make It Right. I knew how disappointed he was to not be able to get his dream job and have to return to Paradise, but I had no idea of what he'd left behind. As someone who loves second chance stories, I was very eager to find out if Cam and Tatum Ellison would have another chance at being a couple.
Right off the bat I knew any sort of reunion between the two was going to be very difficult. They were still raw from what ever broke them apart four years ago. I was intrigued by how they behaved around each other, even though it was painful for them to do so. I loved the chemistry they had. Cam and Tate just worked well together. I was heartbroken by everything Tate was having to deal with and I admired her for how well she was handling everything. I didn't always agree with the decisions she made, but I think she was trying her best.
I loved meeting Jamie and Ted. I do wish there had been some more interactions between Cam and them, perhaps some flashbacks to the past, to give me more insight, but this book is firmly set in the present. I would've also liked some sort of resolution to Ted's story arc, but perhaps that will be addressed in another book. I got really emotional at times. (I cried.) I loved seeing other characters from the preceding books in the series make guest appearances. It was great to catch up with them. For those who may be worried about getting lost, you can read this as a stand alone.
I read this book very quickly; it was that exciting and thrilling. I'm sincerely hoping the series will continue and we'll get more stories from the now mostly former Bowler University gang. Megan Erickson has written a book that will thrill, entertain, and touch you.
