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.
I want to thank Megan for giving us Max and Lea's story. You couldn't have written a better book for these two characters. I am flailing and I can't stop smiling because I have all these emotions that I can't contain. 

"Can't people change? I'm not an asshole all the time."

In Make It Count, Max was an ass, I mean he had his reasons but still. When I started reading Make It Right, I knew there was hope for him.We get to see all sides to Max including his vulnerability that I didn't think he had. In Max's mind being strong meant tough and being soft meant weak so throughout the book he starts to get a new perspective on life with the help of Lea. And don't even get me started on Max's cooking . . .

"She didn't give anyone the power to make her feel less confident about herself, particularly men."

Lea, excuse my french, is a fucking badass. She has a disability, her leg was "permanently disfigured" in a car accident when she was younger but that didn't stop her from becoming an independent women that doesn't take crap from anyone. (She has a black belt so watch out.) Lea knows who she is and want she wants. She knew she deserved the best and wasn't going to settle for anything less and I admired her so much for that. 

Lea and Max gave each other strength. He didn't treat her like she was weak and she saw past his bullshit. They were perfect for each other! And like all relationships it took time to build their trust and when it finally happened, it was absolutely beautiful. I love this couple with a passion. The banter between those two is sexy and hilarious. Also, no first fictional date will ever top Max and Lea's; their date was frigging amazing.

Make It Right was a fun, fast paced read that I quickly consumed in one sitting. Megan Erickson is one of my favorite authors and if she continues to write like this I might have to marry her brain.


  1. I love this series. Erickson was a new author to me but now I'm trying to catch up on all her books :-)
