Make it Count by Megan Erickson

**Thank you William Morrow Impulse for providing me with an eARC via Edelweiss in exchange for a honest review 

Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend’s gorgeous best friend, Alec…who just so happens to be her brand new math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?

Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends—both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It’s safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm’s reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.

Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She’s adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He’d never stab his best friend in the back…

But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can’t be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust Alec may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it.

My Thoughts:

This is another one of those books that left me with warm and fuzzy feelings and a goofy little grin on my face! I had to wait a week to even write this review so I could make sense and not just be a rambling fangirl mess! 

The story line was a pretty light one compared to other New Adults I have read recently but it really worked for Kat and Alec's story. This is definitely a book that I would want to pick up and read on a bad day because I know it would lift my spirits.

Kat was so quirky and super adorable. She was someone I could really relate to so that pulled me into the book even more. Her problems with school were very realistic and I liked the story line the book had about her learning issues and her lack of confidence when it came to school. It made Kat seem more even more real. 

I freaking LOVED Alec. He was like a knight in shining armor coming in to save the day. I'm not used to falling for the good guy but fall I did. He was just the sweetest and he did so much for Kat and helped her in so many ways.There were also many very *steamy* scenes with these two and OOOHH WEEEE!!!! 

There were some side characters that I really loved too, Danica being one of my favorites. She is such an awesome friend to Alec and pretty much had no filter and told everyone like it is and I loved it! Max, I found to be quite interesting and I'm really ready to read his story in the next installment because I believe he has a lot of demons in his closet and I want to see how he gets them all worked out. Lea came along late in the story but she seems to be very spunky and I can't wait to see more of her also. 

I really didn't have any issues with this book. Everything fell together really well and the characters were really great. I can't wait to read more from Megan! I will definitely be waiting for Make It Right, which is coming out in September of this year. 

My Rating: 


  1. I love the shoes that the girl on the cover is wearing! Haha sorry random that. Your review was awesome! I am so glad you found it so enjoyable :)

  2. I'm so happy to hear that this falls on the lighter side of NA. I want more of those; too much angst just makes me frustrated and angry and I don't end up enjoying the story. I can't wait to meet swoony Alec!


I would love to hear from you! I try to always comment back :)
