Love is blind.
Love is false.
Love is deceitful.
My fairytale ending turned into a nightmare soon after I gave the man I thought was perfect my vows. Like the coward I was, I remained in my prison for too long. But there was one light amidst all the darkness – my daughter, Ailith.
Now, I’m a 33-year-old woman, living with her mother in a little town in Scotland that’s quiet but safe, trying to keep the family business afloat.
When will I find the courage to live again?
One day, a glance from a stranger brings me a sliver of hope that I haven’t believed in since I was young.
Will it be enough?
Love is a lie.
Love is an illusion.
Love is painful.
She made me trip over my own two feet – made me yearn for the very thing I’ve avoided all my life: love. But she didn’t love me back. I had to escape my memories somehow, and I fled to Scotland.
Now, I’m more lost than I’ve ever been, trying to forget the woman who managed to soften my cynical heart.
Will the hole in my chest ever heal?
One day, the sorrow in a woman’s eyes causes me to trip again. My heart beats anew, and when she finally allows me to see her, I’m filled with hope.
Will she give in to me?
For Laura and Kristian, everything changes with just one glance. But can two people who have been burned in the past open their hearts and learn to love again?

This book was just freaking amazing, all the feels. I was enraptured. Reading about these two tormented souls moved me so much, I really enjoyed how the author could write about dark situations or tragedies without reserve and mostly avoiding pathos.
I knew the first time I’ve met Kristian in Make Me Believe that I’d love his story, if he had a chance to get one. When Karen Ferry made it came true … I wasn’t disappointed. At. All.
Kristian was a bit lost at this moment of his life between family issues, being in love with a woman who didn’t love him back, he needed a change and lead it to Scotland, where his life was going to be turn upside down. Living his ways of a manwhore, avoiding relationship like the plague, filling his days as a tattoo artist, it was enough at this moment, escaping the defeated silence.
There was something about him that made him more mature and wiser than his actions, and the moment he met Laura, it’s like his heart was beating again, the feeling was as scary as thrilling.
Laura, the feisty Scottish woman, working in her mother’s ranch, taking care of horses and single mom. Tough as nails, she went through a lot. As tragic as it sounded, I liked to read about she survived and mostly fighting everyday, to be the one in control and definitely not giving her heart.
A bit of sass, fierce and protecting the ones she loved, breaking all the walls was a challenge that Kristian was willing to take, and oh my …
They may have heavy luggages but they were never judging each other, accepting without reserve who they really are, and it was written so beautifully. I loved that Kristian had to work for it, in his mission to break Laura’s walls. And he definitely knows how to use his “assets” LOL
I had to tell you that book has less amount of sex than the other ones but don’t get me wrong, you can feel the heat. A simple touch or a simple glance, you got it, you felt it, just an incredible feeling.
Seriously, I felt so much, the range of emotions were just incredible … I have to stop rambling … but I just can’t.
The chemistry was off the charts, the tension was palpable, the author’s way to convey emotions and to make the readers connect with the characters and world was magical. I went from smiling to almost crying, and definitely not regretting anything, every words, every moments from the bad to the good ones, I heard them all, I was living it with my whole heart. Laura, her daughter (Ailith) and Kristian made such a beautiful family, a connexion that no one would never be able to destroy.
I can tell you all the things I loved about this book, I can ramble for days but all you need to know that I wasn’t looking for something perfect, but something real, raw, scorching with a hint of sweetness. Their journey made me feel so much, I couldn’t put it down, I was overwhelmed.
I didn’t need time to learn how to love Kristian and Laura, it just happened. Just like that.
