Make Me Stay by M.E. Gordon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I always like a feisty romance and this one is that. There is plenty of banter with sassy and domineering characters. First we have the Rock Star on the rise and team that with the girl with abandonment issues. She gets it understandably from an incident from her past. Her dad had issues too, but is now thriving in his new business, and that is what he wants for his daughter as well. So he asks her to come to the Pub, and help out over the summer. This is where Caroline meets Kane, and from the first instance, its intense. Things happen quite quickly from enemies to friends to lovers in a small amount of time. They are both high-spirited and stubborn, and each wants a certain thing. At present, Kane has a full time construction job, that he happens to do with his band mates, ONS. The bond that the band have is like brothers. There is nothing that they wouldn't do for each other and the ribbing is funny.
I enjoyed this book even though it was fast paced, maybe a little to much that it made the relationship seem hasty and unnatural. I think the characters needed to evolve more as it came across as immature at times. Also, the court proceedings felt unauthentic with witness procedures. On the whole, this story is good and I would recommend it if you like your characters to be hyper and hardballs.
