Make Me Yours by Rebecca Brooks - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Claire is a single mother. She will do anything for her daughter Maya. Maya's father Ryan was the love of Claire's life, but things didn't work out between them. Ryan is a musician and their life together wasn't easy. Claire hasn't seen him since the terrible night she left him many years ago. Her friends are encouraging her to go out more and when she's finally ready to go to a concert the first man she sees is Ryan.

Ryan never stopped looking for Claire. She's the one for him, but he messed up. He'd like to make things right, but didn't think he'd have the opportunity after years without any news of her. He never expected to find her in Gold Mountain, a small town in Washington. Now that he knows where she is he wants them to have a second chance. Will Claire be willing to give it to him and will Ryan be able to convince her he won't make the same mistakes again?

Make Me Yours is a sexy and romantic story. Claire and Ryan have a lot of chemistry. There's also a deep emotional connection. They went through a lot, when they were together and after they split up. They both came out stronger, but they do have scars. Ryan messed up, but he's determined to show Claire that he's changed. It's clear from the start they belong together, but the question for Claire is if love will be enough. I couldn't wait to find out if she could give Ryan the chance he so longs to have.

Rebecca Brooks has written another terrific story about a strong independent woman. I love that her heroines can take care of herself. Her writing has an easy flow and her stories are perfect to read in one sitting. I like how her main characters are soul mates, people who are each other's one true love. It makes The Men of Gold Mountain a fascinating series. Make Me Yours is a great addition, it's an amazing entertaining, hot and charming story.


If you like romantic stories about strong women you'll love the Men of Gold Mountain series. The stories can all be read as standalones.

About Rebecca Brooks

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them.

She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.

She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and independent women ready to try something new.
