{4 Star Review & Giveaway} Make Me by Amanda Heath


Make Me Cover


Make me, Channing. Make me fall. Push me, shove me, just make sure I get there.” I shout at him, taking a step back. His eyes clash with mine. I read the challenge there, making me take another step back.
He stalks the few steps to me and grabs my arms slamming his forehead down on mine, “I’ll make you.” His lips skim against mine as he continues to speak, “And I’ll be falling right there with you.”

Paisley Vaughn grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. After finding her mother dead from an overdose, Paisley and her baby sister are shipped off to live with her maternal grandparents.

She always knew they were rich, she just didn’t realize how rich they were. Now she’s being forced to go to a prestigious high school. One where the tuition is more money then she’s ever seen.

Thinking these rich kids are going to be snobbish and rude, she’s surprised to find the Vaughn name means she is untouchable. Well unless your name is Channing Southerland.

Paisley has to navigate her new life and all the new people in it. While her mother might have lied about her grandparents, no one is lying about Channing. He’s beautiful, mean, arrogant, and turning her on.

Before long a war is fought, leaving Paisley wondering if she’ll be ruined or made. Though she might just fall irrevocably in love.

This was one of those books that you are rooting from the very beginning for the heroine. In this case, I was praying she would get her happily ever after after the shitty life she lived!

Paisley in Make Me by Amanda Heath was spontaneous and courageous. She was more adult for her age than any seventeen year old girl should have to be. Paisley had a bad life with her mom in the dirty trailer park. Her mom was a drug addict who just didn't give a crap and that left Paisley raising herself and her baby sister Beatrice or BeBe for short. 

Then in the blink of an eye, the life Paisley was living changes. The death of her mother brings changes to Paisley's life that she was never expecting. She learns she has other family and she is rich. Like loaded, stinking filthy rich. And up from the trailer park rises Cinderella.

Everything is changed around. Paisley has to want for nothing and her sister is being taken care of and she can go back to being BeBe's sisters and not her mother. 

Paisley's world is rocked once again when she meets Channing Southerland. The moody boy next door. There is more the Paisley and Channing's story than most would see from the outside. Channing's godmother is in fact Paisley's paternal grandmother. It is a twisted web of lies and truth that draws Channing and Paisley together. 

They have to crack each other's shells, or in Channing's case his expressionless mask. Through the strength of love and determination, Channing and Paisley find love. It's not easy, and it takes them a long time to get their, many believe them being together is fate. And when it comes to Paisley and Channing it is true that they get their happily ever after and it could very well be the fate everyone says, they are destined to be!

This is my first Amanda Heath book. It was fun and emotional and I loved her strong minded and strong willed heroine. It was a nice change from the heroines who are woo is me. Thank you for sharing Paisley, Channing, Royal, Rachel, Brody, and all the other characters with us! They were a true joy to read!



“Do you really want me to fall for you?” I whisper.

He gets up from the ground and runs his fingers through his hair. He seems frustrated but I don’t know why. “That’s what I want,” he whispers also. Looking back at me. I can’t see his eyes from here but I know what they look like. Full of fear and uncertainly. “I’m scared though. I’ve never been in a serious relationship. And I really don’t want to fuck this up.”

I’m scared too. Sometimes he consumes my thoughts and that was before I knew how he felt. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be with him and I screw up. But I know that I want to fall for him. I know deep in my soul that I will never have a love in my life like I would with Channing.

And that’s the scariest thought I’ve ever had.

“I don’t know if that’s what I want,” I tell him looking away.

He runs his fingers through his hair yet again. “Paisley, don’t fuck with my head. I’ve had enough of that in my life. I can’t do crazy bitches anymore.”

I flinch with the comparison to his mother. To my mother. “I’m not fucking with your head. Maybe we shouldn’t do this.”

I can see he’s pissed now. He’s unable to see my fear that I’m trying to push him away, like he was trying to push me away. “Stop. The. Fucking. Head. Games!” he yells, taking a deep breath after each word.

“I’m not!” I yell back. Who knows what the truth is anymore. I’ve been screwed by a lot of people, but I’m still here. I wouldn’t survive being fucked over by Channing. I wouldn’t survive him breaking my heart.

“Dammit Paisley! Open your fucking eyes! This is fucking real. You and me, that’s real. What we feel isn’t a fling. I’ve never felt this way about anyone in my life. Don’t take it from me,” his voice is pleading.

My body breaks out in a cold sweat and I wipe my palms on my leggings. My limbs shake and I don’t know if I’m mad or just plain fucked up. Maybe it’s me with the commitment issues. No, I know it is me. So I do something for myself, I let go of that fear. Though it comes out more like anger.

“Make me, Channing. Make me fall. Push me, shove me, just make sure I get there,” I shout at him, taking a step back. His eyes clash with me. I read the challenge there, making me take another step back.

He stalks the few steps to me and grabs my arms slamming his forehead down on mine. “I’ll make you.” His lips skim against mine as he continues to speak. “And I’ll be falling right there with you.”


Meet Amanda


I live in southern Arkansas with my husband and young daughter. There is also an insane Boston Terrier running around. I've always been a lone wolf and find my friends in books. I started writing at a young age and I haven't stopped since. Most days you can find me either glued to my laptop or my kindle. My first novel, This Beautiful Thing was an Amazon best seller for 11 weeks and a year later I'm still tickled to see people enjoy it. I may not be a huge seller but I have the best fans ever and I thank God everyday for every single one of them.
