It's been a while since I read a book by Katee Robert and I have to admit I'd forgotten how much I enjoy her stories. I'm a sucker for a friends to lover romance though so I could't resist requesting Make Me Want and I'm so glad I did, I'm definitely going to have to start catching up on the rest of the author's backlist now!
This is part of Harlequin's new, and extra spicy, Dare range and I wasn't disappointed, it had the perfect amount of romance and smut and because the relationship was built on friendship it never felt rushed. Lucy's cheating ex left her with very low self-esteem, she's been single for two years and has decided that it's time to get back out there to try to find a husband but she feels like she needs a confidence boost before she gets started. She thinks Gideon could be the perfect solution, he's not looking for a long term relationship but she knows he respects women and has plenty of success finding willing partners so thinks he'll be the perfect man to give her a few pointers in the bedroom. Little does she know that Gideon has been secretly crushing on her for years and once he gets a taste he'll do whatever it takes to make their arrangement permanent.
I loved Lucy, she was treated badly in the past and it understandably knocked her confidence but she's a woman who knows what she wants and one she gets over her embarrassment she's not afraid to ask for it. She gives as good as she gets both in and out of the bedroom and I really respected her for that. Gideon is great too, he's always had a thing for Lucy and nobody else has ever come close but he never acted on that because she was dating one of his friends. The chemistry between them was scorching hot and they're both quite adventurous so we get treated to plenty of dirty talk, a very hot video call and sex in public places. There was a little drama at the end that I really could have done without but it wasn't enough to stop me thoroughly enjoying this story and I'm definitely looking forward to continuing this series.
