Series: Bowler University #2
Expected Publication: September 9, 2014
By: William Morrow Impulse
Genre: New Adult/18+
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 love a good redemption story and MAKE IT RIGHT is redemption at it's best!
Max Payton reminds me of a cookie dough cupcake.
Don't get your icicles into a twist, Elsa, I'll explain...
On the outside, a cookie dough cupcake looks like a regular vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting, but take a bite and you'll quickly discover it has a soft goey cookie dough center inside.
The same is true of Max. By all appearances, he's your stereotypical tall, dark and looking for a good time with no strings attached kind of guy. But hiding beneath all that playboy charm is a guy weighed down by other people's plans and expectations for his life. He's lashed out, made mistakes and hurt those who genuinely care about him.
All Max needs is someone to give him a chance to be the man he wants to believe he can be. To to see past all of his bravado right to the soft goey center of his heart.
Enter Lea. She's feisty, independent and full of kickassery. She and Max are like oil and water at first, but throw in some spicy self-defense sessions, a purple unicorn and a slice of pie and you've got yourself the perfect recipe for love!
(Not to mention some super smexy times.)
Max and Lea both have things to overcome but their willingness to be patient with each other was refreshing and I loved their banter!
This is a great addition to the Bowler University series!
She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.
