Sometimes, a chance meeting is just the push you need in order to break free from the darkness within…
My name is Emma, I’m 23, and I’ve never been kissed. I’m no virgin…But kissing is too intimate, too intense, and I don’t want that – not ever. I like sex, though, and most of my hook-ups don’t seem to mind the no-kissing part.
But then I meet Daniel, who’s such a geek, and definitely not the kind of guy I’d normally take an interest to. He’s the shy, quiet type, but with such a charming smile, and he makes my heart race – something I’ve never experienced before.
Daniel has his own issues to work through, and I know my hardened heart shouldn’t melt when he looks at me. I really shouldn’t be falling for him, either, but somehow, he manages to tear down my walls, and I’m scared…because once he learns my secrets, he’ll want nothing to do with me.
All I know is that Daniel makes me feel things that I have never felt before – but do I dare let down my walls and confide in him?
Will I let him be my first kiss?
This is my story, and I’ll reveal everything in my own sweet time…
Just don’t expect all the hearts-and-flowers stuff.
Life is messy, and mine is no different…
INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS
***Due to possible ‘triggers’ and adult situations (yes, there is lots of sex in this book) it is not recommended to persons under the age of 18.
** This review is a special spot about the new chapters – You can find my review of the first one (which appears to be more like a crazy-rambling, declaration of love to Make Me Believe (First Edition)) : http://wp.me/p5Vp9R-x0 **
This book holds a special place in my heart, thanks to my book bestie who knows me so well, (Thanks Wenn by the way), I was so freaking excited when Karen Ferry decided to release a special edition.
You succeeded my dear author friend, I fell in love all over again with Emma and Daniel. I was sad to leave them when I finished reading Make Me Believe, and this time I read it three times in a row!
I promise I won’t write an interminable review but I just want to emphasize this point : You Make Me Believe in fairytales!
Daniel was just my sensitive/naughty geek and once again his shyness moved me, a man who finally found his other half. His unconditional love, kindness got me. He finally found his home with Emma. *Swoon*
Emma was still struggling with her past, but with Daniel she could overcome everything. I just wanna hug this eccentric woman with her sensitive side.
Oh my Karen, my glasses were fogging again, holy smoke, where did you find all this inspiration??? Really, I have to say that Daniel and Emma’s private life was spontaneous, sweet, and damn hot! Romance and sex were melting perfectly together. I love how passionate, consuming those chapters were and as always with a banter off the charts!
Thanks again for adding more chapters into Daniel and Emma’s lives, it was an amazing gift for your fans but also for the new ones!!
My name is Suzy, and I’m just a girl—a girl who believes in fairytales, unicorns, and the notion that wishing upon a shooting star really can make all my dreams come true. Or, at least, I think I’m that girl. Lately, the world’s perception of me has left me questioning everything.
Love is love, or so I believed…
Then he barged into my life.
My name is Garrett, and I’m just a guy—a guy trying to survive in the world I’ve been cursed to roam. I do not cling to the idea of happily-ever-after, the scars of my past proof positive that I do not deserve such luxuries.
Love is lost, or so I thought…
Until she lit up my life.
***While this is book #2 in The Believe Series, it can be read as a standalone novel. Due to the sexual nature and subjects addressed, it is not appropriate for readers under the age of 18.***
** I was given an ARC for an honest review **
Sometimes, you love an author and you’re so eager to read the next book, you’re waiting for the next one, and then once you’ve got it … Mind-blowing!!! Garrett and Suzy’s story exceeded my expectations. Just like that.
This is how I love my Romance novels : true, kind and passionate.
First of all, the characters felt realistic, authentic with no pretenses, they didn’t beat around the bush : when they argued, when they loved, when they hurt, I felt it all.
Suzy was definitely my hero here; sweet on this outside but such a firecracker on the inside; don’t let this woman fool you; she could bite!
She was not afraid to show her true amazing colors, searching for her HEA, even if she was kinda lost in her life. New York seemed the place to start something new, away from all this mess … Until an misunderstanding called Garrett came along in her life.
Her fierceness, braveness and sensitive side moved me. She was a force of nature!
I think Karen Ferry ruined me for another book boyfriend … Ladies be prepared for some heat, because Garrett is the epitome of sexiness and dominance! I was mesmerized by this character. Living in the dark for more than a decade, meeting Suzy was the breath, the light he wasn’t expected and deserved.
Troubled and smitten from the moment he laid eyes on the sweet and innocent Suzy, he was trying to stay away from her, not to taint her by his darkness. Rough, stubborn and honest but always recognizing when he was wrong. Garrett is the man!
The two of them together … Explosive, challenging and sensual! I really enjoyed the duality in their relationship, never taking anything for granted. First starting for a physical relationship for Garrett, and by the way was such a fool sometimes, stubborn caveman!
Suzy on the contrary was for the long haul, even if sometimes, Garrett reaction’s broke my heart, his ways to push her away, in his constant auto protective mode.
Sometimes, I want to believe in HEA, and each time Karen Ferry did it. Writing stories with centered characters in a very introspective way with this little spark that made this book special to me. My love for these characters grew throughout the story. A beautiful tale about love, forgiveness, against all odds, breaking down the barriers.
One of my best reads for 2016.
