Make It Last

Make It Last Summary

In a small town, it's hard to recover from being dumped by your high school sweetheart. That's just what Briana has to do after Colin leaves her to follow his dreams. She focuses her energy into her friendships and the pursuit of her own goal of becoming a chef. Just when she finally feels like she's on the right path, he comes back to town.
Colin knew breaking up with Briana before leaving for college was the right thing to do. He was determined to leave small-town life behind forever, and that included his high school girlfriend. But when a sports injury puts him on the sidelines, he's forced to return home. Seeing Briana again brings back a lot of memories, and Colin wonders if he made the right decision. It doesn't take long for him to realize he wants her back, and this time, he wants to make it last.

Make it Last is the first novella in the Friends & Lovers Trilogy. You can get all three books in the series, plus a bonus ending for each couple, in the Friends & Lovers omnibus.

I couldn’t finish reading the book2 star

The flow of the book isn’t great. It also needs to be proofread better.25


Basic and predictable1 star

Wasn’t really impressed. This book was as predictable and scripted as a hallmark movie. The dialogue had no natural flow.15

Decent read, glad it was free2 star

I wasn't overly impressed with this book. There were a number of punctuation and grammatical errors and I felt the writing was kind of flat. There was entirely too much omniscience for my taste and I feel it would've been stronger if I were clued into only Briana or Colin and Briana's thoughts and feelings. The other major flaw for me were the plot holes. The whole premise is that Colin broke Briana's heart and there wasn't going to be a second chance, yet there was very little chase before she gave in and I didn't feel like he really prove anything to her or me, the reader, that he'd changed or deserved a second chance (outside of pure attraction and unresolved feelings). Oh, I can't forget Shawn, who was thrown in there without rhyme or reason. Read this if you want, but don't expect it to be life changing or anything.25


Boring2 star

Not an interesting book. Very boring and predictable. No drama, no plot.25
