Title: Make Me
Grayson Daly and I aren’t just rivals. We’re enemies. Born minutes apart on the same day in the same hospital, our parents thought this meant we were somehow destined to be together. We knew were we just destined to beat each other. Competition boiled over until junior year, when the cold war turned into an unexpected peace offering. Maybe my hormones allowed me to notice his broad shoulders, stormy gray-blue eyes, and soccer star’s chiseled frame. But after I fell for him…he stomped all over my heart. Ten years later, I’m at the top of the realty game in Bayshore and Grayson is just a distant memory. Until he shows up from NYC, his ego bigger than a skyscraper, and asks me to sell the house he recently inherited. It’s easy to say no. Even though I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to dangle from in strong arm battles. But I forgot that Gray doesn’t take no for an answer. And that he isn’t content unless he’s defeating me. He butts into my evenings on the boat. Ropes me into water skiing battles. Even shows up at the bar and creates a scene when I’m scouting a date to the upcoming Bicentennial Ball. It’s almost like he’s gunning to win me. But if he wins, that means I lose. And I’m not ready to cede victory just yet.
Hazel and Grayson are enemies.
Point blank period. Besting each other is as common as breathing for them. Until it wasn’t anymore. There’s a saying, “there’s a thin line between love and hate.” With this book that’s sooo true. I laughed out loud a couple times and the chemistry was amazing.
Hazel is a go getter who loyal to her town and her town is loyal to her.
Grayson got away, as soon as humanly possible to the big city. The little small town feeling too claustrophobic for him. Sometimes, you have to go home.
This is a short story and book one in a series so maybe that’s why everything didn’t feel fleshed out. I wanted more from the characters.
