Series: Men of Gold Mountain Book #4
Author: Rebecca Brooks
Blurb: Claire Collins has always been good—except when it comes to bad boys. Or one bad boy in particular: a tattooed musician as skilled with her body as he is with his guitar. But he wasn’t ready to be a father, so she left him to raise their daughter on her own. Only fate had other plans, and suddenly, Ryan is back in her life, disrupting everything. This time, though, she’s determined not to lose her heart…even if she still craves his touch.
Ryan Thomas never expects to see Claire again—especially not in a small mountain town in Washington on the last show of his comeback tour. But when the lights come on, there she is, more beautiful than ever. One incredible night with her won’t be enough… But he’ll have to prove he’s not the man he used to be, if he wants to keep her—and his family—for good.
Favorite quotes: “It’s always been you in my heart. Even when you’re not with me – even if you don’t want to be with me ever again – it’ll still be you in my heart.”
“If he’s sad that he’s in Chicago, and you’re sad that he’s in Chicago, and I’m sad that he’s in Chicago, and Dino’s sad that he’s in Chicago” – Maya held up her stuffed toy – “then what’s he still doing in Chicago?”
Thoughts: Make Me Yours is a bittersweet romance about second chances with a little rockstar romance thrown in for good measure. Ryan is a somewhat battered character that just can’t seem to get anything right and has messed up more than once – as a reader you can sympathize with his character though and connect with him while desperately hoping that he can redeem himself for good. Claire was a genuinely loveable character and a strong female whose real weakness is Ryan. It was interesting to gain insight into her character, and to watch her struggle with what her brain is telling her as opposed to her heart. Not to mention her strength to do what was best for her daughter.
Make Me Yours was an emotional journey but it is well worth it in the end. It may even wrench a tear or two away from you. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed it and rate it a five star read!
