Review: Make Me Want by Katee Robert

Seriously, I'm in love with Katee Robert's books. She's a unicorn among authors. I swear, and after experiencing 8 meh to nope books these past few days, I needed a really good read.

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: Harlequin Dare
Release Date: February 27, 2018

She’s taking control. And it’s driving him wild!

Lucy Baudin’s ex did a number on her self-esteem, but it’s time for her to regain control. In her job as a lawyer she’s bold, confident. But in the bedroom she needs inspiration to reawaken her inner seductress. Asking her friend Gideon Novak for help seems wrong…yet so deliciously right!

What’s it About? Lucy used to date Gideon’s best friend who was a total loser and jerk to her all while Gideon sat on the sidelines, secretly in love with her. Now Lucy is single, hasn’t seen Gideon in a while since her relationship ended but she knows she can come to him for help which she does. She needs a husband ASAP in order to move up in her career and she feels Gideon can help her. Well, now Gideon is torn between helping her find a man worthy of her and throwing his hat into the ring because he still cares for her. So in between teaching Lucy to have more confidence in the bedroom, and looking for potential candidates to fill the role of husband, Gideon’s trying to show Lucy that not only is she an incredible woman, but that he’s the best man to be her husband.

Overall reaction to the story? Harlequin has a new line which is supposed to be super sexy and honestly if Katee Robert is one of the authors in that new line then you’re off to a really good start because this woman excels at making things H-O-T without making the plot suffer for it. She’s one of my go-to authors when I need a romance with hot sex and cheeky characters. Gideon and Lucy’s friends-to-lovers romance was just the thing to break me out of my funk this week.

There was a bit of a role reversal with Make Me Want, see Lucy wants Gideon to help her find a husband because if she wants to move up in her career she apparently needs to be married. *eye roll* While I wouldn’t hesitate to call out the author on this seemingly unrealistic situation, all I have to do is take a good look into some businesses to see that yeah, this B.S. is still a thing. All I’m sayin’ is that I would have totally been Lucy’s co-worker Georgia before I bent to that crap. Lol. But anyway back to Lucy’s dilemma, she needs Gideon to not only look for potential husband candidates but to help her get her sexy back after her ex-boyfriend/Gideon’s ex-friend all but destroyed her confidence in her personal life. I totally got behind this plot from the beginning.

Lucy is the kind of character that has two sides to her, professional and personal. She’s a total badass in her career, driven, successful, and ambitious which I loved. An ambitious woman is total gold and that’s what she is but to balancing out that awesomeness is her deep rooted insecurity when it comes to her personal life. Her ex tore at her confidence until she found out he was cheating on her and broke things off but by then the damage was already done. I felt for this character and I wanted her to get exactly what she didn’t know she needed, someone who loved her as she was and encouraged her to be herself no matter what.

Her arrangement with Gideon wasn’t so much him teaching her to be sexy but him creating a comfortable environment where she could find herself on her own. I really, really found that sexy about Gideon. He didn’t go into their arrangement intending to change Lucy into his version of the perfect woman, he already loved her for who she was, and he wanted her to see that she didn’t need to change, just be confident in her own wants and needs. That’s just so hot I couldn’t even deal with it. He was alpha enough to be sexy but not controlling to be a turn off. Did he get kind of “Grr” because of his jealousy? Yep, but when he pushed, Lucy pushed back, creating some SUPER HOT sexytimes that Katee Robert excels at. *bows down to the queen of sexy times* It never fails, a Katee Robert romance novel raises the temperature no matter where the reader is at.

Her books need a warning label. One with big red letters that says “WARNING: Contents of this book may spark spontaneous combustion, temperature spikes, and/or the dragging off of romantic partners to the nearest available surface. Proceed with caution.”

If Make Me Want is a measure of what to expect from this series by Robert I’m going to need ice… A lot of it. I can’t wait for Roman’s story!

Click It or Skip It? Click It. In reality none of Katee's books should be missed so...
