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. (Goodreads)

Opening Lines

"Max drained his cup of beer and closed his eyes to let the sounds of the party sink into his skin and down into his bones."
The Good

The biggest challenged I faced was, how do I write a review for Make it Right and NOT spoil everything!?

I was super excited to join this blog tour. When I read the synopsis I instantly knew I would love Lea, and of course I did. This is my first Megan Erickson read and it for sure won't be my last.

Megan Erickson does a fantastic job of really capturing a character and breathing life into them. Although I haven't read Make It Count I know why everyone thinks Max is a real...what's a nice word, jerk! But throughout Make It Right you get to see Max's character growth and he gets his own redemption. You honestly can't avoiding swooning over him. Lea is for sure on my list of favourite female characters, I don't think there could be anyone else that would compliment Max well. Lea is probably one of the realist characters I've ever read and connected with. I'm only just starting to read New Adult books, and Make it Right has set the bar high for anything I read next!

Lasting Impression

Overall, Make it Right was better than I expected it to be! I can't wait to get my hands on Make it Count and Make it Last (2015)!! Should you pick up this good? YES. Do it, buy it, read it!


About Megan

Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.

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.

  1. I love a good New Adult book, so if you're saying this is good, I'm gonna have to read it!! I just finished Cora Cormack's books (Losing It) and they were so good! Def recommend them!
