I received a copy of Make Me Need from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
In this red-hot scorcher from New York Times bestselling author Katee Robert, Trish Livingston meets her unlikely match in her brother’s best friend, the gorgeous Cameron O’Clery. They’re complete opposites—but that only makes the temptation hotter!
Trish Livingston desperately needs cash, so when her brother offers her a job while he’s on paternity leave, she snaps it up. She’s even willing to put up with his best friend and business partner, the notoriously grumpy Cameron O’Clery—especially when she finds out he’s very easy on the eyes.
Cameron hates people: especially peppy, happy people like Trish. He avoids her at all costs, until a raunchy late-night encounter in an elevator shows him that there’s a fine line between hate and lust. Cameron knows he’s broken the rules—and is resolved to keep his distance from her.
But Trish doesn’t make it easy. A work trip places them in adjoining hotel bedrooms, giving her the chance to put on a sizzling show just for him! When Cameron’s left wanting more, Trish is delighted to give him exactly that… Can either of them walk away from something that feels this good?
Every now and then I just want a smartly written, sharp and sexy read, and Make Me Need definitely fits the bill. Despite being the fourth book in the Make Me series, you can absolutely read it on its own.
Trish Livingston is twenty-five years old and in desperate need of a job. She accepts a job working for her brother’s flourishing tech business in New York while he’s on paternity leave and quickly dives into the role of making the company’s on-site location far more inviting to customers. But, her perpetual good mood is tested by her brother’s business partner, Cameron O’Clery, who seems to have a grudge against just about anything resembling a human. The two clash and resolve to stay away from another another… until they no longer can.
I had a lot of fun reading Make Me Need. Trish was a really likeable main character who’s down on her luck, but trying really hard to stay positive and focused. She has an awesome work ethic and more patience than most when it comes to dealing with cranky Cameron. Cameron, by contrast, really does not like being around other people and openly admits to have terrible people skills and you can tell when he’s trying really hard not to be his usual self and to accomodate having a new person in his life.
Being part of Harlequin’s Dare line, Make Me Need is quite explicit in it’s content – which, if that’s what you’re after is great! Trish and Cameron’s relationship really takes off once the two go off to London for a business trip and start living in close quarters. Not only does their physical relationship progress, but they also begin to unpack their feelings and the impact that their relationship has on them.
This was a fun and easy read that I’d recommend to fans of the genre.
