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…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

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…
