BLOG TOUR + GIVEAWAY: Make It Count by Megan Erickson

Bowler University Series #1

Publisher: William Morrow Impulse/HarperCollins
Release Date: June 3
4 Stars!

Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend's gorgeous best friend, Alec...who just so happens to be her brand new college math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?

Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends--both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It's safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm's reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.

Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She's adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He'd never stab his best friend in the back...

But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can't be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust Alec may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it.

Top Five Reasons You Should Read MAKE IT COUNT

1) The cover is super cute and a nice change from most NA covers that usually feature half nekid couples who are seconds away from sucking each others faces off. (Not that I am opposed to kissing, but still.)

2) The need for more diversity in books is something that has been widely discussed on social media recently and Kat, the MC in MAKE IT COUNT is not tall, blond, the size of my pinky or white. (There's nothing wrong with being a combination of those traits, but it's nice to see some variety.) The supporting cast is also made up of an eclectic mix of ethnicity and lifestyles too. DIVERSITY FTW!

3) Alec, Kat's love interest is a nerd. A hot nerd with a unique sense of style, but an unapologetic brainiac nonetheless. Score one for the smart dudes!

4) There be kissing. And dancing. And steamy tutoring sessions. Oh.My!

5) Kat has a learning disability, one that goes undiagnosed until she's on the brink of failing out of college. Megan Erickson does a great job of capturing the feelings, emotions and insecurities that go along with that.

6) Fast, flirty and fun, MAKE IT COUNT is the start of a new series that's sure to entertain while tugging at the heartstrings!

I know I said Top Five and I listed six, but I do what I want. Also, I'm bad at math.
