Make Me Beg by Rebecca Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Bartender Mackenzie Ellinsworth has always gone it alone. So when she has a chance to open her own bar and restaurant, she’s got a plan for how it should go. Not in that plan: a ripped and rugged playboy stepping in to take over. Mack doesn’t do players, and she doesn’t do one-night stands. If Connor wants to work with Mack, he’s going to have to keep his strong, sexy hands to himself.
Connor Branding is determined to prove he’s not the directionless playboy Mack thinks. But opening a place together causes more problems than it solves. The two of them can’t agree on anything—except how scorching hot their chemistry is. Connor may be ready to indulge every desire Mack’s been denying herself…but turning business into pleasure is likely to get him burned.
My favorite books are those that are about a couple who have known each other for years and yet...they've never gotten together. I love a sassy female lead and a sexy guy who can hold his own. Connor is someone I would have as a best friend - as a matter of fact, he reminds me of my best friend!! He can give as good as he gets. Mack is just one of those heroine's that chip away at your sanity piece by piece. You could feel the slow build up of their chemistry from the very first chapter. Mack's main problem is that she's afraid that Connor is going to leave, but what she doesn't realize is that she's pushing him right out the door. Not only did this book have great chemistry, but it had humor and sexiness with a plot. The only downside was....ABBI!!! I hated that girl. I wanted to throat punch her as soon as she came on the scene. I know, we as writers, put them in there to have some conflict. However, I wanted to cause my own conflict and just slide past her name every time I saw it! I know it's a book, but when you get invested in characters and start seeing them as people then you "done good child!!"
I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on NetGalley for an honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's.
