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

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

My Review

“This is it: the moment I hand over my heart to her, unafraid of what the consequences might be.”

Make Me Believe is the debut novel by Author Karen Ferry. It is a beautiful story of overcoming the past to find new beginnings and hope for the future.

“Daniel makes me want to believe in fairytales again even if I did give up on them many years ago.”

Daniel is such an interesting character. He is smart, quirky, and quickly becomes a smoldering hot man. He is quite a match for Emma, as she is quick-witted, feisty, and a force to be reckoned with.

“I’ve met someone, and even though we barely know each other, I have this almost unbearable wish to feel his lips on mine.”

Told in dual points of view from both Emma Daniel, Make Me Believe was a sweet and sexy read that offered a unique story feel. Being introduced to Daniel and learning the many mysterious aspects of his personal and sexual life were surreal and cute. He was such a great character to follow, as his growth in the story was fast-paced and quick-learned. There was a different chemistry between he and Emma in the story that was not run-of-of-the-mill. I love how they initially met and their second reintroduction. It was totally them.

The scenes that were set by Author Karen Ferry added to an already lovely story line; I recall one in particular that will forever be burned into my mind, and will never be able to look at a park bench as simple ever again. The pace of the story also contributed to my overall love for this story. I look forward to more from this author in the future.

“I want you so much, every single part of you – the light, the darkness, and the in-between.”

Excerpt

My alarm goes off and I hit snooze quickly.

Just five more minutes . . .

The ping alerting me to a text message, however, makes me open my eyes slightly, and my arm sneaks out from the warmth of the sheet covering me. I fumble around a bit, my hand searching for my glasses. As soon as I have found them and put them on, I pick up my phone from the floor, swipe the screen and see that the text is from Emma.

Damn, she’s up early, I think, yawning, and I look at her message:

Emma: You know, the walls in this building are really thin . . .

I frown, confused.

Me: What do you mean??? This is weird . . .

Emma: Let’s just say that I’m glad I won’t have to teach you everything . . .

What the . . . ? I bolt upright in bed as a feeling of dread fills my gut. Before I have the wits to form a reply, another ping alerts me of a new message. I’m almost too embarrassed to read it, but I think I have to man up, and so I take a look.

Emma: The next time you need to . . . err . . . relieve some tension? Go do it in the shower, okay? 😉

That winky face at the end mocks me, and I can feel an embarrassing blush starting to rise on my neck. What the hell do I say back to her? This is really embarrassing. Ugh. I can’t make a joke of this, but I do have to answer her, I guess. I’m quite relieved that I didn’t shout out her name last night, though . . .  now, that would be pretty difficult to talk myself out of. I don’t want her to think that I’m some kind of pervert just because I had her in mind when I jacked off.

Me: Will do. See you at work.

I throw the phone behind me on the bed and rake my hands through my hair, all the way to my nape, holding onto it tightly for a couple of seconds. I breathe deeply a few times before loosening my hold, and I decide to try to ignore the fact that Emma obviously heard me get myself off last night. There’s nothing I can do about it.
