Make it Right by Megan Erickson - Review and Giveaway

Title: Make it Right
Author: Megan Erickson
Series: Bowler University #2
Publication: September 9th, 2014 by William Morrow Impulse

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.


4 out of 5 stars

I have to admit that I was a little nervous reading Make it Right.  I absolutely loved Make it Count (my review can be found here) that I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to keep the two books separate and that I'd compare them when they really deserve to be reviewed based on their own merit.
Well, that and I really really didn't like Max in the first book.  In fact, I kinda pictured him as Bumper from Pitch Perfect.  So the idea of reading a book with him as the focal point (and presumably romantic lead)...yeah. 

I wasn't sure it was going to go so well for me.  

But then there was a cat and suddenly there was hope.  Maybe Bumper Max wasn't as completely irritating as I thought he was. 

And then there is Lea.  Gah...hello new girl crush.  Without knowing any better, she may look like she is this fragile little flower with scars and limitations...but that is not it at all.  The girl is a total badass.  Sure she has her weaknesses and insecurities, who doesn't...but she is more than capable of handling her shi...situation and handling Max.

The two of them work.  The work so well that maybe maybe maybe a little piece of my heart that loves Alec and Kat so much can be freely given to Max and Lea.  

That's right, I said it.  I love Max (and Lea).  I'm not afraid to admit when I am wrong.

Make it Right ended up being a super fun read for me, in spite of my initial hesitation.  Cute and sassy and entertaining, I can't recommend it enough.
