Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she'd stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it.

With the future of her family's hedge fund on her shoulders, Abby barely has time to sleep, let alone find love. And her best friend Russell acting like a sexy, overprotective hulk any time their Super Group goes out in public definitely isn't helping her single status. But after a near-tragedy lands Russell in her bed for the night, Abby's suddenly fantasizing about what he looks like shirtless. Chest hair and tattoos—who knew?

As Russell struggles to keep Abby at a safe distance, she begins to see through his tough-talking exterior—and acknowledge her own feelings. Now she's ready to turn the friend-zone into foreplay…and make him lose control.

Kassiah: So this one turns the tables a bit and gives us blue-collar guy Russell totally hot for Abby. Of course, he doesn’t think he’s good enough for her, so he decides friendship is going to be enough for them. Something happens, and sparks fly between them. You know what happens next.

Of all of the books in this series, this is my least favorite. I didn’t like Abby–she annoyed the heck out of me, which whatever. But Russell? I just wanted him to be confident! Yes he knows he’s not good enough for her, but I just wanted him to stop being such a douche about it.

What did I love? Dear god. Tessa Bailey should teach classes on writing hotness.

I don’t ever want to be inside anyone else, Abby. I want you to unzip my pants whenever you’re wet and know I’ve been waiting- just fucking WAITING- to get inside my girl’s pussy. I want you to forget how it feels to sit down anywhere but my lap, right on top of my dick. Yours. It’s yours. I’m yours.

There were some fun moments in this one, but not as much as in the first two books in the series. Overall though, the hotness and dirty-talking hero almost made up for the frustrating characters and unnecessary drama in Make Me, and I think the Broke and Beautiful series should not be missed.

Report Card
Overall: 3.5
