You Make Me Review
You Make Me
The guy she wants…
Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath. Then he left without a word. The betrayal devastated Caitlyn and made her vow to forget the compelling bad boy. But forgetting his sensual touch and their deep all-consuming friendship is easier said than done.
Isn't the guy she needs…
Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend. Pre-law major and frat president, Ethan, is thoughtful and always laughing, and he makes her feel happy, calm. He also gives her the social acceptance she craves.
But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere. Caitlyn remembers all the reasons why she loves him, even if they don't make sense to anyone but her. Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…
And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?
I hate to give these types of rating but this book was just not for me. I don't really think that there was anything that I particularly liked about the book. The only reason it got 2 stars was because there are going to be people who like this book. You have to be in the mood for these types of characters and drama and I was just not into it.
The heroine was whiny and dramatic most of the time. One boy she thought about all of the time and can't really get over but to have a stable life she wants this other guy. Not because she has heart-breaking feelings for him but because he can provide a safe and predictable life. I can get wanting to keep her past life a secret for a while but if she was really going to marry this dude it should have come up after she takes the ring. There was ridiculousness with both of the relationships that she was trying to choose from. One guy is insecure and the other one is a "bad boy" who thinks that fighting for her is sending her a pic of the tattoo they got together.
There really isn't much I can say about the Hero. And that is because we don't know that much about him. He kinda just shows up and we are supposed to believe he never forgot about her and still loves her. Even after he comes back we don't know much about him even while he is physically in the world the book is in. He kinda is just there.
I felt bad for both Ethan and Aubrey. Both of them deserved better than Cat.
