4/5 Review: Make Me by Beth Kery





Harper McFadden established herself as an investigative journalist by being both compassionate and fearless. After tragedy strikes her family, she moves to the shores of Lake Tahoe to find some peace. But when mysterious software mogul Jacob Latimer enters her life, her thoughts turn from her own healing to an insatiable desire to get closer to him...

No one knows what secrets lurk in the past of Jacob Latimer. He built his corporation from nothing, but rumors abound about his mysterious rise to power. Harper is the last person he should let into his life. She could expose the truth about his origins. But Jacob knows things about Harper’s past that draw him in. He wants nothing more than to make her his—and Jacob is a man who always gets what he wants...

**********

Make Me was originally released as an eight part serial, this is the serial in it's entirety.  It is a standalone erotic romance.  We meet Harper McFadden and Jacob Latimer on a beach in Tahoe Shore.  Harper has just taken a job as newspaper editor to get away from the stress of investigative journalism and to heal from the recent death of her parents.  Jacob well he is a reclusive billionaire - with a hidden past that we learn about through the story and he knows Harper who has no recollection of who he is. 

The story is told by both characters through dreams, memories and present day.  It's a second chance romance of sorts even though they were both children.  One with memories and the other with none (it seems that her father was able to wipe the sordid details away.)

Ms. Kery, entwines the past and present beautifully.  We learn about each character and the story will keep you guessing as to the final outcome.  Her story lines are solid, her characters are strong.  The erotic aspect of the novel  doesn't take away from the forward motion.

If you are in the market for a wonderfully written, story with a bit of mystery and a bit of a different twist on a second chance romance, I highly recommend Make Me!
