When I read the synopsis of Make Me, I thought, friends to lovers. But I don’t know if I could actually call it that because I don’t’ believe Russell and Abby were ever really only friends. There was this simmering desire between them that until they got brave enough, didn’t boil over. But when it boiled over, it had the Tessa Bailey scorching hot touch. Boy did they combust.
Tessa Bailey is known for her books being hot. Make Me did not disappoint in that aspect at all. But this book was so much more. Watching the fight between Russell and Abby of whether or not to be together. In a lot of ways there were opposites. But opposites attract. And there had been an attraction between them since day one. Russell knew it, Abby felt it. But Abby was so in experienced that she didn’t know what she was feeling. She found comfort in Russell. She couldn’t imagine her life without him. And Russell felt the immediate need to protect her. From everything.
