Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway for Make It Right by Megan Erickson

There was something about the blurb of this book that drew me to it.  To find out if it met my expectations, read on for my review.  And don't forget to enter the giveaway to win copies of book #1 in this series!

Title: Make it Right
Author: Megan Erickson
Series: Bowler University #2
Publication: September 9th, 2014 by William Morrow Impulse

Max Payton lives by two rules:

Size and strength win any fight, and never show weakness.

When a rash of assaults sends Bowler University for a tail spin, Max volunteers to help teach a self-defense class. One of the other instructors is the beautiful pixie-faced girl he keeps butting heads with…and who challenges everything he thought he knew.

Lea Travers avoids guys like Max - cocky jocks who assume she's fragile because of a disability caused by a childhood accident. She likes to be in control, and something about being with Max makes her feel anything but. But during the moments he lets his guard down, Lea sees a soul as broken inside as she is outside. Trusting him is a whole other problem...

When the assaults ramp up and hit close to home, Lea and Max must learn, before it’s too late, that true strength can come from vulnerability…and giving in to trust is sometimes the only way to make things right.



★★★★ stars

I've never been prouder of my instincts.  Mine weren't anything like Max's or Lea's were in this book, but they sensed there was an amazing story behind the cover of this book and they were right.  I was surprised by how quickly I immersed myself in their story.  I love that I was able to jump right in the deep end of sorts, especially since I hadn't read the first book in the series.

I really liked both Max and Lea.  They're both perfect for each other.  Lea was  hurt in the past and Max hurt others in the past, so it was interesting to see them find a dynamic that worked for them. It's not like they didn't make mistakes.  Ho boy, did they make lots of mistakes, but I liked how they kept working to fix them.  I loved the chemistry the two of them had together.  

The story is fast paced, and I couldn't help but feel Lea and Max's relationship was slightly, and I mean very-slightly, fast tracked.  It's apparent from page one that these two already know each other so it could've been something I missed from the first book.  I liked how there was never a dull moment.  Between Wayne the cat and Max's brothers, I was always entertained.

I loved how important friends and family were in this book.  It wasn't just about Lea and Max.  I loved how my viewpoints on certain characters changed as the story progressed and I was very sad when the book ended.  I'm really looking forward to Cam's book and in the meantime I'm going to go back and read Make It Count, the first book in the series.
