What is it About:
After graduating from Bowler University, the last place Cam Ruiz ever expected to find himself is his hometown. A bad job as a bouncer and
worry over his mom’s health make living in Paradise anything but. There’s only one thing that can make his return any harder—running into the only girl he’s ever loved.
Tate Ellison made a mistake when she was eighteen, one that cost her the best thing she’s ever had. She’s always hoped the regret of losing Cam would fade over time. Too bad it’s only grown. She took comfort in the fact she’d never have to face him again, so his presence in Paradise throws her for a loop.
The pull between them is instant and when the truth of what happened years ago tumbles out, they share a mind-blowing kiss...which leads to more. But the past has a way of repeating itself. When all the cards are on the table, Cam and Tate must decide what they are willing to do to make it last.
To Purchase the Book:
We all have had to make those hard decisions in life--be it to move across the country, to risk taking a new job and perhaps taking on something that we never thought we could do, until we did. What struck me most about this book is despite Cam and Tate being so in love with each other, they needed to spend time apart. When Cam learns what Tate had done, he had the right to be made at her, but he loves her and knows that she made a decision that felt right to her at that moment.
The angst that I felt when I read this book, is not from it being over dramatic or too much sadness. I felt myself tearing up because Cam and Tate just had to keep battling to win their happily ever after. I wanted them to end up together--I had invested myself in these characters this much. I also appreciated that this was not a new adult novel that relies solely on the bedroom scenes--there is so much more than that to this novel. If you love a great story with characters you could be friends with right now and a story to get lost in, then give Making it Last a shot.
About Megan:Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.
She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.
