Blog Tour - Review: Make it Right by Megan Erickson

Make it Right
Release Date: September 9, 2014
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.


I was very excited to get a chance to review the second book in this series.  It was so much fun to revisit some characters from the first book and explore some of them even deeper.  The author did a great job discovering the different depths of Max who was shown to be such a not good person in the first book.  I was excited to read about him and it was a beautiful thing to see him find himself throughout the book.

We are reintroduced to Lea in this book, which is an education major and was friends with Kat and Danica in the first book.  She definitely has trust issues especially from everything that has happened to her in the past and has left her with a permanent limp.  But with trust issues the only thing she accomplishes is closing her from experiencing the world and people as she should.  We are also reintroduced to Max, who even though wasn’t shed in a good light in the first book turns out to be a much deeper person that I would have thought.  There are many different layers to Max and it’s just like peeling an onion, another layer is beneath it.  It takes some time for him to get to the center of his core but when he does, he really does.

We meet more of Max’s and Lea’s family and learn about their pasts and how they became to be the people they are today  but I think the most important thing is the people they become when they get together, because not only do they better each other but they feel freer to be who they really want to be.  Isn’t that why most people go to college, to find out that they are and what they want to be when they finally do grow up, and I can say without a doubt that Max definitely found out who he wants to be in this book.

There are some great scenes in this book both in the bedroom and just with family in general.  I thoroughly enjoyed this from beginning to the very end.  I’m even more excited to finally read more about the final roommate of the guys, Cam.  He’s a mystery that’s had me intrigued since the very first book and his very first appearance, what’s his story?  Ah can’t wait to read that.

Love the cover of this book, very cute, college like and playful.  The setting was a very typical college, but it’s not about the setting in this book it’s all about the characters and they all rocked.  Great writing, very addicting and just an overall great read.  A great continuation of a series and I just know the next one will be just as good if not better.
