About the Author

Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.

She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators, and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids, and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.

I read this series out of order. I read and LOVED book one, Make It Count. Then somehow I missed reading this one but then I was part of the book tour for Make it Last. It was time to fix that. I adore this author. She does a great job of creating characters that feel real and have real issues. No perfect people here - it mirrors real life very well. I like that. Lea has a limp. An accident when she was thirteen haunts her still but it doesn't defeat her. She's determined to do everything she can and pay the piper for things she shouldn't. And that piper is always pain. But some things are worth the time with Max. She's attracted to Max and him to her but they aren't right for each other - or so they think. Max has made some mistakes. Been a guy he doesn't like. And his family has him being another guy that he doesn't much like, either. But he shows Lea the real him. And I so love the real him. He's kind to stray cats and helps girls when their life falls apart. He plans perfect dates. And he volunteers to be the attacker a certain black belt gets to demonstrate on. Yeah, there were bruises. Trust is a big theme in this one. Everyone who has been hurt gets the idea that trusting can be dangerous. Lea's bad at trust. Max is bad at being who he is and and wants to be. It's an opportunity for them be vulnerable with each other and hope. I was reading and suddenly realized where the train wreck would happen. It made me sad to see it coming and I wanted to read faster to get to the make-up. But while I was sure I saw where it was going, it wasn't exactly what I thought. And there was some pain in there that I just was teary about. But I loved the shirt...yeah you have to read it to know. I loved the adviser appointment. I loved the pulling to the side of road moment. There will be rose petals! Another great New Adult read from this author. If you've missed this series, fix that.

Ever since I finished Make it Count this past summer, I could not WAIT to get my hands on this book! I knew Max Payton would get his redemption story and I could not have asked for a better heroine to help him do it! I loved Lea so much- she is such a strong, resilient woman and she is the perfect fit for Max. I love Erickson's writing style. This is how college NA should be written! It's fun and cute, but at the same time the characters face their own challenges both individually and as a couple. Add in a strong set of side characters and you've got yourself a great read! Let's start with how much I love Lea. She may have some physical scars and a slight limp from an accident that occurred during her youth, but that does not stop this girl. She has learned to rise above the pain and not be ashamed of who she is or what she looks like. After this particular accident, she craves control in her life, especially after not having had it in that very moment. "There was something about Lea, this power or strength that lurked below the surface of her small, fragile frame." I love that Max recognizes her strength right from the beginning. He doesn't treat her any differently because of her past injury and that earns him a lot of brownie points. Max hides behind this cocky façade, but he's a really good guy at heart. Having grown up with 2 older brothers and a hardass father, Max hasn't had the loving, affectionate home that Lea has. The glimpses of vulnerability she sees in him are what really endears him to her, thus deciding to give him a shot. "That's what you've taught me, even if you don't know it yourself. I've never felt stronger than when I decided to open up to you. When I decided to surrender my heart to you." I love that Lea and Max aren't perfect. They both make mistakes when it comes to their relationship and learn from them. I felt bad for Max and Lea because they are both hurt by the others' actions. Thankfully, they realize their wrongs and work to fix them. They are a fabulous couple and I loved how sweet Max could be with her! We get plenty of time with Kat, Alec, and Danica in this book. Kat and Alec are good friends to both Max and Lea. After the way Max treated Kat previously, it's so great to see them getting along and that she has chosen to forgive him. Which brings me to Danica. That is one girl to have in your corner for sure! She is Lea's roomie and fiercely protective of her friends. I love that she isn't afraid to be herself and tell it like it is. "Danica was a rare creature. Like an albino deer. Everyone wanted her, but they wanted her to keep. And she didn't like to be kept. Pinned down. Forced into any sort of consistency. Her loyalty was unrivaled, but it was hard-earned." After getting to know these characters so well, it's only natural that I would want them to have their happily ever afters. I'm super excited for Cam's story because I love second chance romances. Even though it takes place in Cam's hometown and away from Bowler, I know Megan will infuse it with the same spunky, fun vibe that she has given her previous two novels.

So, I think I've sat down no fewer than five times to try to write my review for Make It Right, but I'm having such a difficult time saying anything more than "OMG I LOVE IT BUY IT IMMEDIATELY SWOONS AND FEELS" in shouty caps. I recognize that's not particularly helpful, so I'm going to try my best to reign in my inner fangirl and tell you WHY I loved this book so much. Just know that whatever I say, it won't do this one justice.  I have a great amount of respect for an author who can make me love a character I previously hated. Ok, maybe in this case "hate" is a strong word to use for Max, but let's face it, he wasn't a nice guy in Make It Count. He made just about every unforgivable mistake a guy can make. I had zero respect for him as a person, a friend and least of all, a boyfriend. He was arrogant and self-centered and even though I was completely ready to dismiss him, I was still excited to find out Megan was writing a book for him. I don't like disliking characters. I think nearly everyone has redeemable qualities and I love when an author can make me see the true character and make me admit I was wrong. And I was definitely wrong about Max.  The beginning of Max's transition began, for me, when he took in the stray cat. I mean, who doesn't love a guy who loves cats? It was obvious he identified with the cat and in saving the cat, he found a way to begin saving himself, too. One of my favorite scenes in the book, and in all the books I've read so far this year, involved Max explaining why he was going to make homemade (yes this guy BAKES!) treats for Wayne the cat because he deserved good things too. It was so heart-melty and swoony, I think I fell a little bit in love with him right then. Regardless of when it happened during this book, the end result is the same... Max completely redeemed himself in my eyes. And more than just redemption, he earned my love and respect. He is a genuinely good and caring guy. He just went through some stuff and even if I didn't like the things he did, after learning more about his backstory, I completely understand why he did.  I can't begin to tell you how much I loved Lea. She was such a fantastic heroine. She was a strong woman who could take care of herself, despite her disability. She avoids cocky guys like Max like the plague. But, even with her mind set on avoiding him, there's no denying she has a bit of a crush on him. As she watches him flirt with so many girls around her, she wonders why he constantly teases her and doesn't give her the same attention. She might think she doesn't want him, but that doesn't mean she still doesn't want some of his attention. After he helps her out after her cousin is attacked, she realizes there just could be a lot more to this guy than meets the eye.  The dynamic between Max and Lea was just great. Neither of them backed down to the other. I love a girl who gives as good as she gets and Lea definitely did that. Their banter was fun to read, their chemistry was palpable and the sexual tension between them leapt off the pages. I loved getting lost in their world as they learned more about each other and grew closer to something real. There were as many sweet and swoony moments as sexy ones and I was completely enamored with the characters and their stories... both times I read it. (Yes, I read my ARC twice because I loved it so much.) The on-campus crime spree was not only important to Max and Lea's story, but I think it added another level of importance to the book. This is one of the things I love most about Megan's books. Not only does she give us kickass characters and sweet and sexy romance, but there's always a little bit MORE to them. This makes them more realistic to me... and it makes them stand apart from some other new adult books. I just can't recommend this series highly enough.  I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

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.
