4 STAR REVIEW~ Make It Last by Megan Erickson

Title: Make it Last
Author: Megan Erickson
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication: January 6th, 2014 by William Morrow Impulse

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.


When I picked up Make It Last by Megan Erickson, I wasn't exactly sure what the story was going to be about. This was the first novel I have ever read by this author but the synopsis pulled me and made this an easy choice for a book that I would choice to read and review.

Make It Last follows Cam Ruiz back to his hometown of Paradise, after his graduation from Bowler University. Cam's hometown has many things he doesn't want to see and deal with, he just wanted to get out of his small town and away from the one girl who broke his heart, Tatum Ellison.

Tate and Cam go way back before their sexual relationship. They were friends, best friends long before that. They did everything together then that friendship developed into something completely else. An all consuming, forever, true love. Until one mistake took that away from both of them. 

Now Cam is back and dealing with the possibility of seeing Tate again.. The girl who stole his heart and broke it into a million pieces. 

I really enjoyed Make It Last. It wasn't just Cam's journey to finding his way back to his true love but Tate's journey as well and her being able to find her self and not just being the girl who ruined the one good thing going on in her life. Tate has so many things that have held her down and kept her in Paradise and Cam is back to be her one way ticket out, not really her ticket out of town but her ticket out of the life she never wanted for herself and her chance to show who the real Tatum Ellison really is.

The side characters in this book were a lot of fun too. I We meet some of Cam's friends too and they were great. Fun, supportive and just made me want to read the other books in this series.

Make It Last did not disappoint for a first book choice by Megan Erickson.. The story was amped with emotions and laughter, sadness and everything  else. I recommend this if you're looking for a light hearted read.. But I do with I would have started this series from the beginning.
