I liked this one a little bit better than the first, if only because the relationship drew me in better This is actually something of a surprise because you don t end that first book with much of an opinion of Max It had to be a tough challenge for Erickson to redeem him, but she not only did it but made it look easy.The book was a little predictable on a couple of levels, and that hurt my enjoyment a bit Indeed, I stalled out for half a week or so just after the middle where a roadblock was pretty inevitable and I just didn t want to see the crash Fortunately, as inevitable as the crash was, the fallout was everything I hoped it would be and that s something of a wonder in other words, it worked out to the strength and benefit of Max and Lea and did so in an organic but completely believable way.So yeah, it was a solid fourish stars with a bit of a dip for being predictable Fortunately, Max was just so sweet that it was hard not to root for him to the very end and yes, I know how very unlikely that sounds if you ve only read the first book If you don t fall in love with Max when he s with Lea I m wondering why you read romance novels at allA small editorial note The editing on this eBook was terrible The kind of editing where it s apparent that changes simply weren t smoothed out The kind where the author is the origin, but an editor who is even half awake should have caught them Some chapters particularly near the end had mistakes every other page.A note about Steamy There s two or three steamy scenes and they are steamy Lea and Max aren t typical in any sense and when they decide it s time, there s nothing casual about it I really liked how their intimacy was so much an expression of their inner character and admired how well it showed their burgeoning emotional connection as well Very well done. Make it Right was such a lovely NA read that was able to give me the warm and fuzzies After I finished the book, I literally hugged my e reader because Make it Right managed to put a goofy smile on my face It was a sweet and romantic story about two people who grew and matured together as a couple.Make it Right tells the story of Max and Lea Both these characters were beautifully fleshed out Lea, especially, was a breath of fresh air and a character who was easy to look up to I m always on the look out for books with characters with disabilities, because we obviously need diversity in books, so I was pleased to find out that Lea had a mild disability in the form of a limp What s great about this was how deftly Megan Erickson handled Leah s disability She didn t make Lea s disability the focus of the story and the heart around which her personality fleshed out Basically what I m trying to say is that the author made sure that her disability didn t define who Lea was Undoubtedly, it had helped her grow into a strong young woman who was independent, feisty and complex Lea did what she wanted and never once did she mope and whine about her condition She had grown to accept it as a part of her and she did not consider herself damaged, which I thought was such a great message to spread to readers Max was also up to par with Lea I m not going to lie, after what he did to Kat and Alec in the previous book, I was a bit wary of how I would feel for him, but he completely redeemed himself in my eyes and I fell very much in love with him He gave off vibes of being a complete jerk with his cocky and douchey attitude, but he was in fact a sweetheart I think the moment I fell in love with him was when he adopted a stray cat he found around his house and started making gourmet cat snacks for it Tell me, how could I not fall in love with that The romance in Make it Right was beautifully done, growing slowly from a friendship The banter between Max and Lea was great Those two were definitely a complementary couple Most of the time, the romances in NA tend to focus on the sexual tension between the characters Here, Megan Erickson strove to seek a balance between the sexual tension and the adorable factor I loved that there were some pretty steamy moments in the book, but it also was balanced out by the super cute moments that had me gushing and swooning and wanting to hug everyone around me It was entirely too adorable for words and left me in such a pleasant mood Additionally, this was a couple that learned from each other, most importantly, they learned about forgiveness and following ones dreams There was obviously that one big misunderstanding that usually impedes a couple before the HEA that is commonly found in most contemporary novels, but the one in Make it Right wasn t the kind that made me want to pull my own hair I think the only other thing that could have made me love this book would have been the first person POV I tend to prefer the first person writing over third person writing when it comes to contemporaries, but I did think the latter was done well with Make it Right.All in all, I loved Make it Right and thought it was a wonderful and an endearing New Adult read that should be read by everyone who wants to smile, swoon and fall in love while reading.

Max has got a massive chip on his boulder sized shoulder and he is pretty much angry at the universe Trapped in a life he does not choose for himself, he sees no way out of the future that is already mapped out for him He harbors a secret crush on Lea, his ex s bff, but he can t stop acting like a total jackass around her.Lea had been drowning under the weight of her own problems, but now that she s in college she has her shit together and she has a plan for her life Because of what she has faced in the past she can see beyond the carefully cultivated mask that Max wears to the vulnerability underneath Because Lea showcases her vulnerability Max opens up and starts to let her in Then she locks down and the story goes back and forth as they desperately try to trust one another I love books that essentially focus on the redemptive power of love and Make It Right is such a read.I loved their love story and it was full of the heart breaking, frustrating, angst laden toing and froing that I love to torture myself with Both characters are complex and solidly developed I like the secondary cast of characters and they were decently detailed as well I didn t read the first book, and you don t need to in order to enjoy this story, but I m beyond curious to read the first book now, and when I have space on my reading schedule I will be downloading a copy.Lea s disability was well written and not glossed over I truly came away with a strong appreciation of how difficult it was for her to manage her condition, but she was a tough girl with a lot of inner strength and someone I very much admired Max was very supportive of her in that regard and I warmed to him as a result I did find the plot fairly predictable and it lost some brownie points for that However, the writing was great and the pacing spot on, and for me, it was a real page turner I read this in two sittings in the space of twelve hours.If you enjoy well written NA that is character rather than plot driven then you will love this book.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review This book will appear on my blog shortly Once again, Megan brings us a book filled with characters to fall in love with and a story that feels fresh After falling for Alec and Kat s story in Make it Count, I was so very anxious to get my hands on Max s goodies I mean story He got sort of a bad wrap in the first book The womanizing jerk who sleeps with his best friend s girl I knew there had to be to him.And he didn t disappoint I mean, a guy who nurtures an injured street cat Give me one secondAnd when you add Lea into the mix, a girl who s been through it and can still kick your ass My favorite kind of heroine.When these two got together, it was magic and when things blew up a little, well, I was pulling for them because they so clearly made each other very, very happy I have to say though that my favorite relationship mending of all wasn t necessarily between our two MC s here I ll keep my mouth shut on the details, but I think you ll enjoy it just as much as I did.

Max has got a massive chip on his boulder sized shoulder and he is pretty much angry at the universe Trapped in a life he does not choose for himself, he sees no way out of the future that is already mapped out for him He harbors a secret crush on Lea, his ex s bff, but he can t stop acting like a total jackass around her.Lea had been drowning under the weight of her own problems, but now that she s in college she has her shit together and she has a plan for her life Because of what she has faced in the past she can see beyond the carefully cultivated mask that Max wears to the vulnerability underneath Because Lea showcases her vulnerability Max opens up and starts to let her in Then she locks down and the story goes back and forth as they desperately try to trust one another I love books that essentially focus on the redemptive power of love and Make It Right is such a read.I loved their love story and it was full of the heart breaking, frustrating, angst laden toing and froing that I love to torture myself with Both characters are complex and solidly developed I like the secondary cast of characters and they were decently detailed as well I didn t read the first book, and you don t need to in order to enjoy this story, but I m beyond curious to read the first book now, and when I have space on my reading schedule I will be downloading a copy.Lea s disability was well written and not glossed over I truly came away with a strong appreciation of how difficult it was for her to manage her condition, but she was a tough girl with a lot of inner strength and someone I very much admired Max was very supportive of her in that regard and I warmed to him as a result I did find the plot fairly predictable and it lost some brownie points for that However, the writing was great and the pacing spot on, and for me, it was a real page turner I read this in two sittings in the space of twelve hours.If you enjoy well written NA that is character rather than plot driven then you will love this book.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review This book will appear on my blog shortly Once again, Megan brings us a book filled with characters to fall in love with and a story that feels fresh After falling for Alec and Kat s story in Make it Count, I was so very anxious to get my hands on Max s goodies I mean story He got sort of a bad wrap in the first book The womanizing jerk who sleeps with his best friend s girl I knew there had to be to him.And he didn t disappoint I mean, a guy who nurtures an injured street cat Give me one secondAnd when you add Lea into the mix, a girl who s been through it and can still kick your ass My favorite kind of heroine.When these two got together, it was magic and when things blew up a little, well, I was pulling for them because they so clearly made each other very, very happy I have to say though that my favorite relationship mending of all wasn t necessarily between our two MC s here I ll keep my mouth shut on the details, but I think you ll enjoy it just as much as I did.
