With two main characters worthy of love, each other and a happy
With two main characters worthy of love, each other and a happy ending, Make Me Yours is a story that will steam you up and fill you with joy.
A couple of things happened after I finished Unravel Me. I did a happy dance, emailed author Kendall Ryan and thanked her for a great story, then I jumped headfirst into Make Me Yours.
Make Me Yours is the story of Liz (Ashlyn's of Unravel Me's best friend) and her sexy upstairs neighbor, Cohen. I knew I was in for a treat. The Liz of Unravel Me was bold, free, and wicked. What I got was that Liz, but also the story of Eliza, the true Liz. She is a girl whose fun and sexy exterior hides a painful past. A past that caused her to change everything about herself, even her name, all in order to protect her heart.
When Liz meets Cohen, a sexy undergrad/volunteer fireman/bouncer/all-around great guy, she is sure she can win his body. But Cohen is an extraordinary guy. Due to his own history, he is determined to save himself, not for marriage, but for his forever. Cohen may be pure, in a way, but he's no innocent. All the work other dudes have put into the actual deed, Cohen has put into the foreplay. Ladies, we love the foreplay, yes? OMG. This glorious man knows how to work it out. Cohen is the kind of guy you want to cuddle and take care of, then defile. *wink*
Now, I'm just going to stop right here and say this....I am so freaking happy to finally read a story about a male virgin and a sexually experienced woman. I'm not going to get into the whole "society and gender roles" issues, because, really, that's no fun. I just love love love that Make Me Yours is such a great reversal of the typical sexual roles in romance. Liz and Cohen haven't made their choices because of, or in spite of, moral ideals. They simply are who they are.
Just as with Unravel Me, Make Me Yours is one helluva good book. I seriously could not put it down, neglecting all real-life responsibility. Food? Who needs it. Laundry? Who cares. This book was so great that I had to talk to my BFF, whom I told that the story had me so amped up that I was stalking my house like a caged tiger. I even sent her a super juicy quote from the story. Her response was unsuitable for this review. ;-) This series has put Kendall Ryan on my must-read-now list.

I was really excited when the author asked me to read this book, I read the first book in this series and really liked. And this second book is even better. I have read this book twice now already, first as a beta read and the second time the finished copy. Both times I really enjoyed this book and the fact that I can read a book twice this close afterwards means to me that it deserves those 5 stars. I almost never re-read a book and certainly not this fats afterwards reading it the first time.
The story from the blurb sounds like there would be less of a plot in this book than in the first book, but luckily that isn’t the case. The book mostly centers on Liz and Cohen and how they get to know each other, in this book that part isn’t skipped and I really liked seeing how they got to know each other. But there is also more to this story than Liz and Cohens growing relationship, Liz has her own problems to deal with and even Ashlyn and her story get some attention in this book. This book is just as fast paced as the first book. I had some problems getting into the story the first time I read it, but after that I just wanted to keep reading and see what would happen to Liz and Cohen. Also the second time when I read the finished version the beginning flows much better now and this book has really improved.
The characters are awesome! We really get to know Liz and Cohen. Cohen and Liz are so sweet together and I liked reading about them. I also liked the fact that even though this is Liz’ story we also learn what happened and is happening with Ashlyn and Aiden. I liked seeing things from Liz perspective and it was fun to see the friendship between Liz and Ashlyn from Liz perspective this time. And Cohen and Liz are so sweet together. Also there are some emotional parts in this book and I felt this make the story come more alive.
I like how this author manages to create a mix between a story and romance, the story is nicely done even though the focus is more on the romance. And the romance is hot and sweet at the same time.
To conclude: I really enjoyed this book. It’s even better than the first book and I liked reading about Liz. I also liked that we kept seeing Ashlyn and Aiden, even thought this wasn’t their story they still played a part. This book is a nice mix between story and hot romance.

#1 Unravel Me
#2 Make Me Yours
Unravel Me was Ms. Ryan's debut novel and after reading it I knew I would be reading more of her books. I enjoyed Make Me Yours even more. If you've read Unravel Me already then you will be aquainted with Liz's character. Make Me Yours focuses on her, with appearances from Ashlyn and “Logan” from Unravel Me. Liz is such a riot. She's outspoken, funny, and has a confident and active libido. I picture a young Blanche Devereaux (Golden Girls) when I think of Liz. In this story, the reader gets to know Liz more. She's actually more sensitive and fragile than she tries to appear, and there is a history that has contributed to her facade. I loved the layering of her character.
As noted in the book synopsis, Liz meets her new neighbor Cohen, who is one of the sweetest book boyfriends I have read. He's younger and inexperienced compared to Liz, but he has an attractive level of confidence. He's such a gentleman and his values are heartwarming. “Cohen?” I placed my palm flat on his stomach. “Tell me.” “I’m waiting for the girl I love.” “Waiting?” “Waiting,” he said firmly. Oh, f***. Waiting! I felt like the breath was knocked out of my lungs. A virgin?" Cohen's decision to "save himself" for the right girl is unheard of to Liz but "Cohen’s showing her just how much fun not having sex can be." "This boy might not have had sex before, but he clearly had practiced some other things." I laughed and I cried in this book. At approximately 240 pages, this story is short, but satisfying. If you are a fan of sexy contempory romances then I would highly recommend Kendall Ryan's books. I can't wait to read more from her.
My favorite quotes:
“You can’t give up on having a real, meaningful relationship just because there are a few jerks out there.”
"I couldn’t help but notice the light scent of coconut oil was still on my skin and I smiled a sleepy grin. I knew I’d never look at that bottle of tanning oil the same way again."
Note: I listened to the audiobook of Make Me Yours. I thoroughly enjoyed the female narrator and the audiobook (without any speed adjustments) is just under five hours...easy peasy! There is a brief section in Cohen's point of view and the male narrator threw me off big time. In my opinion, his voice was much too mature for Cohen's character and this distracted me. Cohen's point of view is only a small section so it did not affect my enjoyment of the audiobook as a whole; I would listen to it again in a heartbeat. But if you choose the audio then just keep this in mind so maybe it won't affect you as much if you're expecting it.
