Make it Right Book Tour: Review + Giveaway!

Click on the banner for the full schedule.
Welcome to my post for the Make it Right book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for copies of Make it Count, the first book in the series. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Make it Right (Bowler University, #2)
Release date: September 9, 2014
Publisher: William Morrow
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: Bowler University #2

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.

My Rating: 5 Roses

An absolutely adorable, wonderful, charming New Adult romance, Make it Right was a fabulous read that I totally loved. I was utterly enchanted by this sweet book and I enjoyed it from start to finish.

Lea was a fantastic heroine. She had been in an accident that scarred her leg and left her with a limp. After wallowing in anger and depression about it for most of her high school life, she decided to make a change and refused to let her injury keep her down. She learned to fight and became an all around kick-ass girl and I really liked that about her. She did have some trust issues, especially after what her asshole of a boyfriend did to her in high school, but it was understandable and it didn't bother me, for the most part. The only time I got frustrated with it was when she still had a moment of mistrust with Max, after he had proved himself to her. But, other than that, I thought she was a great character.

Max was a surprise. After his horrible behavior in Make it Count, I didn't know how he would redeem himself. But, he certainly did and I ended up adoring him. I first started to warm up to him when he coaxed an alley cat to trust him and did the absolute cutest things for the scarred cat, like making him homemade treats. Any man that can be so sweet to a cat gets points in my book. Then, he continued to prove himself. He really could be sweet, when he wasn't trying so hard to be a jerk. I loved how patient he was with Lea and how determined he was to prove that he could change. By the end of the book, I totally adored him.

The romance was wonderful. Lea and Max were so great together. They both challenged each other to become stronger and better and I really liked that in their relationship. And, the chemistry between them was definitely hot. I thought they were a perfect couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. I absolutely loved the story and the ending was lovely. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Make it Right was a fabulous, sweet, and overall endearing New Adult romance. It was a wonderful book and I enjoyed it from start to finish. Romance lovers, this is a book you won't want to miss.
