Overview

Making It Right by Catherine Bybee

A #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller.

In the final book in Amazon Charts bestselling author Catherine Bybee’s Most Likely To trilogy, River Bend’s rebel follows in her father’s footsteps to become sheriff. But it might be time to forge her own path…

Some kids inherit a family business; Jo Ward inherited a badge. Once voted Most Likely to End Up in Jail, the town wild child has become sheriff—hell-bent on uncovering the truth about her father’s mysterious death. Life is quiet in rustic River Bend, but Jo longs for something beyond her small hometown and the painful memories it holds. All that keeps her sane is the support of her best friends, Melanie and Zoe.

But when Jo signs up for an expert law enforcement training seminar, she meets Gill Clausen, whose haunting eyes and dangerously sexy vibe just may challenge her single-minded focus. Commitment-phobic Jo can’t deny her attraction to the arrogant federal agent, and when odd things start happening around River Bend and danger surrounds her, she realizes she’ll need his help to discover who’s out to remove her from River Bend…permanently.

As Jo and Gill work together, it’s clear they make a great team. But can Jo loosen her grip on the past enough to let love in and reach for the future?

Omg! What a book. I love Catherine Bybee's books but I think that A Most Likely To series is by far my favorite specially this book. I started reading this book and all I wanted to know is who killed Jo's father. It a huge mystery and as I reader is keeps you at the edge of your seat. All you want to do is figure out who did it and when you think you know who did a new piece of the puzzle surfaces and it changes your view on everything. I'm glad that after 10 years of trying to find her fathers killer Jo was finally able to put that side of her life at rest and finally go after the happiness that she deserves. Gill is the perfect match for Jo and I'm glad that throughout all the attempts to her life he was able to be by her side the whole time. He made it possible for her to be able to get through all bumps along the way and work together to solve her fathers murder and finally have their HEA. This book is filled with mystery, comedy and romance making it the perfect read. Can't wait to read more of Catherine Bybee's books. This ARC was given by NetGalley as an exchange for an honest review.

This was a great book to complete the series. I appreciated that all the ends were tied and nothing was left hanging. Pleasurable and heartwarming series that I am thankful to have found. Definitely recommend!

I was anxious for Jo's story. I knew quite a bit about her already going into this book, but she had a few surprises. I wasn't sure about Gil in the beginning, but I don't know... yeah, he grew on me pretty quick. He may look tough and use the FBI to keep himself tame, but his inner teddy bear isn't too far under the surface. I think he was a perfect fit for Jo. I loved their story, and I especially love that we see how the previous couples are doing with each book. This is a fun series with some steamy romances and drama and mystery to keep you on your toes.

The more I read from this author, the more I want to devour all her books. Not only can she draw me in with her main characters, she also draws me in with her side characters. They make just as much of an impact as the MC's. It's rare for me to not have at least one complaint about a book, but I can't really come up with anything that I would have wanted differently. It was fast paced, a thrilling plot and a romance that I love to read about. There was no other women/men drama to interfere with the couple. All the drama was outside the couple and only brought them closer together. No sexual abuse, there is violence, but not graphic. While this is the 3rd and final book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. You do see both couples from book 1 and 2, as well as all the town folk in all three books. If you are a fan of series books, you will want to start with book 1 to get to know everyone from the beginning. ARC provided by NetGalley.

Catherine Bybee’s writing is clear, sharp and precise and it draws me in every time. Making it Right was no exception. Jo made mistakes in her past that she was never able to correct which set her on a path in life that may or may not be what she really wanted for herself. Either way, sheriff of a small town is where she is. She has no personal life to speak of and definitely no relationships of the romantic kind. Despite all the small town issues that she is required to solve there is a larger case that her heart demands she finds answers to. Unfortunately, no one believes her. Gill, an FBI agent, finds her attractive and witty. As they begin a relationship things start to heat up in the little town of River Bend. There was a whole little nest of deceptions that had to be uncovered. Gill was a perfect counter point to Jo as they dig into the past to try to find answers. Their feelings and relationship grew in an organic manner which I really enjoyed. This was a fast paced read with plenty of great secondary characters that added to the story. Told in dual points of view I felt connected to both the hero and heroine. Although part of a series it can stand on its own. Received an ARC for a fair review

~ This is a delightful little tale ~ Jo follows in her deceased father's footsteps and become sheriff of River Bend. But when she realizes that she wants more (or maybe just different), Jo decides to accept an offer from an acquaintance, FBI agent Shauna Burton, to enhance her law enforcement skills. The Most Likely series is about bonds of life-long friendship between Jo, Mel and Zoe. However, this last installment did not feature the friendship as prominently as the earlier releases, that was disappointing. Jo's attraction to Gill is the only seemingly vulnerability the author allowed. I love independent characters but, Jo was so closed-off; a completely self-contained character. That made it difficult to sympathize with her situation. I adore Miss Gina ~ would love to read about her youthful indiscretions. Hint! Hint!

I absolutely LOVED this book, or I should say this entire series. This is the story of Jo and like the cherry on top of the sundae and the best part! Jo was voted most likely to end up in jail but instead she is the town Sheriff. His death was ruled an accident but she has been convinced it was not and she has had the feeling of being watched for the past year and the book starts off with her going off for training with the FBI where she meets Gill. He is all sorts of HOT and perfect for her. It was so much fun to go back to River Bend and catch up with locals. Jo keeps the town running smooth while keeping the track team running all while keeping the peace. This was the perfect end to a wonderful series! I recommend this entire series!!!!!! **Received an ARC copy for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

My favorite part about this story is how Bybee took what would seem like it should be a big suspense story and made it all about the characters. While we do get the resolution to Jo's dad's death, Making It Right gives us a better insight into what makes Jo tick outside of that. And seeing her fall in love with a really awesome guy! Jo's made a good life for herself, even if it isn't the one she planned. She's a good sherriff and good for the people of her town - firm but with a good heart. And it is about time that she found someone who will really appreciate it. I think Gill is just fabulous for her. He lets Jo be her, but he supports her and pushes her when she needs it. He's strong and sure of himself after years as a marine and an agent but he's not overbearing. He's funny and kind and smart. Exactly what tough but sensitive Jo needs. The whodunit may be a quieter portion of the book than I expected but it isn't overlooked. Bybee does a great job of weaving it into the romance in a way that doesn't short-change either one. And as we find out the why and the who I really enjoyed how it helped to make Jo's dad into a real human, instead of a virtuous ghost whose shadow Jo had been living under for so long. The truth reveals itself slowly through the later part of the book, helping us and her find out what really happened. After years of worring over her dad's death, and dealing with some guilt as well, having the answers she needs helps Jo not only deal with her past but be able to mover forward into a new future. Maybe one with a big, sexy, tattooed agent in it :) Well-written as always, Bybee brings another great series to a satisfying close. With characters who easily suck you in and a story-line that keeps you glued to the pages, Making It Right is another must-read. (While you'll miss out a little about how Jo got involved with the FBI by starting here, plus some of the background between the girls, this really can easily stand on its own.) *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book.

Jo (JoAnne) Ward’s character had me at hello, folks. Every since I was first introduced to her in the previous books of this series, I couldn’t wait to see this tough, small town, wishes she could redo the past/carries the weight of the world on her shoulders female sheriff get her own HEA. Well, I’m here to give my sworn statement it was well worth the wait. As usual, Ms. Bybee did not disappoint. Gill Clausen, Jo’s FBI agent love interest, was her perfect match. He was the whole package, folks, and their love connection felt like the real deal. This alpha protective, handsome, brawny, mountain of muscle had the brains to match and a heart he couldn’t help but surrender completely to Jo. Their instant chemistry, flirty back and forth banter, and genuine emotional connection as they got to know each other had me riveted until the very end. I absolutely loved how he couldn’t seem to stay away from her, even after their inevitable separation. The bizarre turn of events/twists and turns that finally revealed what happened to Jo’s deceased father ten years earlier certainly took me by surprise. Though I must admit it bothered me Jo’s very respectable father got involved with someone he shouldn’t have and how he kept quiet about it even after another big, unexpected reveal was made. So, in summary, my fellow romance book-loving friends, I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic tale. Catherine Bybee will continue to be an author that always catches my eye with her new releases. Here’s to hoping you’ll feel the same and that my review has been helpful in some way in deciding if this book is a good fit for you. Title: Making It Right, Series: Most Likely To (Book 3), Author: Catherine Bybee, Pages: 350, standalone but suggest you read this series in order, cop heroine with a point to prove, no cheating, no OW/OM drama, no main couple love triangle, heroine is injured, attempted murder, some violence, very passionate/steamy scenes, good guy FBI hero, alpha main couple, strong/sassy/capable sheriff, great chemistry/emotional connection. Book 1 - Doing It Over, Pages: 317, 4/19/16 (Melanie & Wyatt) Book 2 - Staying For Good, Pages: 322, 1/24/17 (Zoe & Luke) Book 3 - Making It Right, Pages: 350, 5/9/17, (Jo and Gill) (I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for a fair review which was distributed via NetGalley. No compensation was provided to me, nor do I have any affiliation with the author/publisher/NetGalley.)

Jo is the sheriff of the small town she grew up, took the job over after her dad died, and is not happy. While reading the other books in this series I was curious about Jo, what was her history, what is her future, and what is she going to do with her life were all questions I had about her. Catherine Bybee answered all those questions and more in Making It Right. At the beginning Jo seemed kind of like a pushover, which is not usually a word I would use to describe a sheriff. The town definitely took advantage of her, calling her at all hours, showing up at her house, and not showing her the respect she deserved. The first time she chose to do something for herself, going to the FBI training program for a week, I cheered. I didn’t know what she would find there but I saw it as the first step towards doing something for herself. From the moment she met Rocco I knew her life would not go back to being the same. The girls, Zoe and Melanie, are Jo’s best friends. I love the support, the fun, and the love between them. There is no doubt that no matter where life takes each of these wonderful characters they will be there for each other. Zoe and Melanie each had their story told in the first two books of this series but it was fun to catch up to them and see where their life was currently at. The friendships and the relationships in this book were amazing. There was sparks, heat, love, and respect. Jo’s story is my favorite and I am sad this series is over but so glad Catherine Bybee share them. I recommend reading all three books in the series. Each book can be read as a standalone.

Wrapping up the series and what a way to get it done. Jo has met her match is sexy FBI agent Gill Clausen. Family secrets abound in this thrilling conclusion that had me glued to the pages needing to fins out the answers.

Seemingly stuck in River Bend she never sees anything going on as Sheriff. So she decides to shake things up a bit and head to D.C. for a week of training. Honing her skill and making herself better is what she's after. And if she meets someone for the week all the better. What she didn't expect was a big, sexy agent to take her mind off things. Or the secrets that come out about her father and his personal relationships in the town. Gill is intruiged by Jo. Feels she's wasting her talent in her small town. Only 2 hours away from her he decides to keep up their little arraingement and see where things go. But dangerous isn't what he expects.

As Jo and Gill get closer to finding the answers she needs, they are both finding out they need one another. Not just in a professional way but on a much more personal level. Jo has never been in love bit it terrifies her. And its Gill's job to make her see that she wants him forever. But can he keep her safe long enough to do that or will her past come back to get her??

Oh my gosh. Catherine Bybee has done it again. I don't know how she does it, but she does. Making it Right is the third and final book in the Likely To series, and is a standalone read. The series focuses on three best friends reuniting for their ten year high school reunion. This is the story of JoAnne Ward, who was the daughter of the town Sheriff and known as a wild child in high school. She was voted Mostly Likely to End Up in Jail. Twelve years after graduating, Jo has turned her life around. She is now the Sheriff of River Bend, Oregon, her hometown and the town her father reigned over. Her whole adult life has been spent on filling her father’s shoes, making him proud, and refusing to believe that he accidentally shot and killed himself. But now, Jo finds herself wanting more. Gill Clausen is an FBI agent based in Eugene, Oregon. He’s also the partner of Shauna who has become a friend of Jo’s since the series started. He’s good at his job, but doesn't have your standard Federal Agent appearance. The two meet when Shauna convinces Jo to attend an FBI training class in DC. The attraction between these two is immediate. However, Jo isn't looking for a relationship and she can't have the citizens of River Bend think of her any differently because she's a woman. But Gill refuses to take no for an answer. What starts out as a one night stand quickly becomes so much more. Within a month of meeting, Jo’s past and future collide when she and Gill team up to investigate what happened to her father. As a couple, I loved Jo and Gill together. Their passion is spot on, but their interactions with each other are fun and playful. Making it Right is an amazing story full of secrets, twists, and turns that will have you guessing and leaving your mind blown. The Most Likely To series is probably my favorite series from Catherine. While I loved the two previous books, Making it Right was the book I was waiting for and it did not disappoint. Now, I have to grab a print copy just so I can hug it. **Received a copy from the publisher and voluntarily reviewed the book.**

Loved this book. Jo, has inherited the badge from her deceased dad. She is the Sheriff of River Bend and has never felt one hundred percent that her dad's death was a suicide. She goes out to an expert law enforcement training seminar, where she meets Gil. Jo has a commitment phobia but she can't deny the chemistry that they have together. Upon returning to River Bend things start to happen and Jo's life is in harm. Gil is there to make things right and find out the truth of Jo's dad's death. Along with her best friends, Zoe and Melanie to offer comfort. I have loved this series. All of the books are stand alone but you will want to read them all. Catherine Bybee has a way to draw her reader in and not let go until the end. Loved Jo, has the tough exterior but has the soft inner heart. I'm sad to say good by to my friends, Melanie, Zoe and Jo. But it was fun to meet them in person, lol.

I loved MAKING IT RIGHT, the third and final book and Catherine Bybee's Most Likely To series. I have really liked this series and I'm sad to know this is the last book. I really enjoyed getting to know Mel, Zoe, and Jo as well as the rest of the River Bend gang. As the town Sheriff, Jo has had to keep her love life on the down low. Always sticking with out of town lovers. Her trip to DC for field training from the FBI at Quantico is the perfect opportunity for her to cut loose and hook-up. Her one night stand with the sexy "Rocco" was just what she needed before getting down to business with her training. One taste of the sexy JoAnne isn't enough for Agent Gill Clausen, in or out of bed she's got his attention. He can tell she's struggling with problems regarding her job as the Sheriff of her small town and wanting to solve the mystery of her father's murder. He's just the man to help her. Good mystery with some great twists, a solid love story, a strong heroine, a big sexy man and some very hot sex scenes. 4.5 stars

Since being appointed Sherif of River Bend, fresh out of the Police Academy ten years prior, Jo has had few opportunities to take time for herself - and even less time to let her hair down, away from the prying eyes of the small town gossip mill. She is taken by surprise by FBI agent Gill Clausen, partner of her friend Shauna, and the immediate attraction that buzzes between them. When they return to Oregon, it's not long before Gill makes the two hour trek from Eugene to see Jo, and soon the two of them are traveling back and forth on a regular basis. As Gill and Jo become closer, things in River Bend start heating up. From the moment Jo's father's death was deemed accidental, her gut told her that something was off, and she has been dedicated to uncovering the truth, so when things start going awry in River Bend, Jo's instincts scream that they're related to her father's death. Catherine's books are always full of heart and love, with a healthy dose of suspense thrown in to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. As the third book in the Most Likely To trilogy, former wild child turned uptight sherif finally meets her match in Gill, a man who has the bad boy look she's always been drawn to, but lives on the right side of the law. The chemistry between Jo and Gill is off the charts from the first moment they lay eyes on each other, and his persistence, his determination to not allow Jo to wall herself off, makes him the perfect match for her. Making It Right has the perfect blend of passion and mystery to keep the reader invested from beginning to end. This book was a stay up all night to finish in one sitting read for me, which I haven't done in a very long time - an absolute must read.

LOVED!! This is the third and final installment in the Most Likely trilogy and I'm sorry to see it end. I've enjoyed getting to know the people of River Bend specifically Mel, Zoe, and Jo. This is Jo's story and it's fantastic. After being named most likely to go to jail in high school the last place Jo thought she'd be is in her hometown of River Bend as the current sheriff. After her father passed away at a young age she felt she owed it to him to continue in his footsteps, keep the town safe and find out what really happened to him. It's not that she doesn't enjoy it but she's been feeling restless and looking for....more. When she signs up for special training at the Quantico FBI facilities she doesn't know what will come of it but what she didn't expect was meeting Gill Clausen. Put this one on the must read list, I highly recommend it.

**Advanced copy provided by the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** I've been a Catherine Bybee fan since I started reading her books a few years ago. There hasn't been a book that I didn't love and this one is no exception! The final, book in the "Most Likely To" series is my favorite of this series! I love that the three main characters (of each book) are as different as night and day yet have established a wonderful bond & little family in their hometown after being apart for many years. JoAnne "Jo" Ward, having followed in her father's footsteps to become the town sheriff, is continuing to struggle with his 'accidental' death while wondering if being in River Bend is what she really wants out of life. So she heads east to attend a training seminar that she hopes will hone her current skills and allow her to pick up some news one that may aid in her investigation. The last thing she expects is for her one night stand to turn into something more but that's exactly what she gets with she meets FBI Agent Gill Clausen. The chemistry between these two is undeniable from their first encounter!! I was really excited for Jo's story and I was not disappointed. I was sucked in from the beginning by the mystery aspect. I loved getting a glimpse into the lives of the other residence of River Bend. I adore the friendship between Jo, Zoe, Mel, and Miss Gina. Gill fit in so easily it was hard to believe he hasn't been around this whole time. I'm sad this series has come to an end but I can't wait to see what Catherine has in store for us next! I have no doubt it will be great!

**Advanced copy provided by the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** I've never met a Catherine Bybee book that I don't love and this one is no different and has quickly shot to the top of my favorites list! The third, and final, book in the "Most Likely To" series is definitely my favorite of these books about three girlfriends who are all so different, but have a bond like no other. JoAnne "Jo" Ward has struggled for the past ten years with the circumstances surrounding her father's death. It was ruled accidental, but for this sheriff who followed in her father's footsteps, she knows just how conscientious he was and the final cause of death just doesn't feel right to her. Couple that with the fact that small town River Bend is starting to feel stifling and restrictive, Jo sets out to try to figure out exactly where she really belongs. When Jo heads to the East Coast to attend a seminar that will not only improve her current skills, but hopefully allow her to pick up some others that will help her further her investigation into her father's passing, the last thing she expects to encounter is a federal agent that is going to change everything. Gill Clausen is not only great at what he does in the bureau, but he's good at a lot of other things as well! As Jo and Gill work together, it's nearly impossible to deny the sparks that are flying between them, however will the very commitment phobic Jo be able to get out of her own way? Or will she push away one of the greatest men she's ever met? There was something about this book that drew me in from the very beginning. I was already invested in Jo, Mel, Zoe and of course Miss Gina and wanted to know how things evolved for all of them, but I think the combination of the mystery and collaboration by this group of friends that was included intrigued me that much more. I loved how easily Gill fit in with Luke and Wyatt and how the group worked together throughout the book to help one another out. While I'm sad this series is over, I have absolutely no doubt that we have many other exciting offerings to come from Catherine Bybee and I for one can't wait to see what's next!
