Make Me Want (Make Me Book 1) by Katee Robert Review

Hi ForeverBookers,

I’ve just finished “Make Me Want” by Katee Robert, and I really enjoyed it. It’s book 1 in the Make Me, adult contemporary series. It tells the story of lawyer, Lucy and businessman Gideon. It’s a simple romance. I, however did think that there should have been a book before this one to set everything up, though. 

There’s a lot of BDSM content so it’s not for readers under 18, I wouldn’t say.

4 Stars!

I’ve unfortunately been ill between finishing “Make Me Want” and writing this review, onwards from here, so I don’t feel it’s right to write and explain quotes as my head isn’t completely there, still. I will however, try to explain my thoughts on the lack of backstory. 

We’re introduced to Lucy and Gideon and then the story starts describing what happened in the past to the characters. There wasn’t anything to base this on, however as this is book 1 in the series. I checked when these past moments started happening frequently. It would have been helpful to have had either a first book or a prequel novella to describe previous events. 

What did I like about “Make Me Want”?

* I liked how this was a short book. It was easy to get through. 

* I liked how there weren’t any love triangles. Yes, there could have been with the backstory as well but there wasn’t. I appreciated this.

What didn’t I like about “Make Me Want”?

* I didn’t like the 3rd person narrative of the story. It worked but I think 1st person would have worked better. That’s just personal preference, though.

I’m giving “Make Me Want” 4 Stars because I thought it was a cute and fun read. It wasn’t necessarily deep but it also wasn’t trying to be anything more than it was, a fun, light adult read. I will be reading book 2 in this series!

Stand by for my next (more detailed, sorry again) review coming soon!

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s best friend supporting him through his worries a…

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…

Scythe (The Arc Of The Scythe Book 1) by Neil Shusterman Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Scythe” by Neil Shusterman. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed it because it’s written by a male author. If you know me then you know that I generally don’t reach for books written by men. It had an exciting plot as well as great characters who were always surprising me. 

5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!
Citra and Rowan are our two main characters. They become apprentice Scythes at the beginning of “Scythe”. Michael Faraday (he’s known as Faraday in the novel), their mentor is a mysterious character, who I don’t think we’re ever meant to be sure of until the end. The first part of the plot surrounds these three characters as they get to know each other and Citra and Rowan learn what they’re going to have to do to actually become scythes. 
A scythe is a weapon. Scythes in this world are the people who control the population. “Scythe” is set in the future. “2042. It’s a year that every schoolchild knows.” This is significant because 2042 is only 24 year…
