Amelia Mason had always believed in happy endings—until her own crashed and burned. Unable to deal with the loss, she'd packed up and left Detroit, her family, and the only home she'd ever known. Now, seven years later, she's forced to return, since her sister and niece have vanished without a trace, and she'll do anything to find them. Even if it means dealing with the ...more

This was a first time read for me by this author. I will admit that I am a fan of many of the other Freak Circle Press authors who have written many excellent motorcycle club romances. I was very pleased that when I started reading this book, I was immediately engaged with the characters and the story line. The other hook for me with this book was the fact that there was enough suspense and trying to figure out the “who-dun-it.” I would think I had the villain(s) all figured out but then the aut

The story line was good, but I couldn't feel any emotions while reading it, i didn't feel any connection to a single character.

At its essence, I think, Make It Right is a story about reviving love and restoring home. Amelia and Danny were married, and their divorce was a tragic combination of honorable intentions, crossed wires, hopelessness, and hurt. But they never stopped loving each other. In this story, they get their second chance to make it right.

But Detroit is a city down on its luck, and the Nightshade MC, of which Danny is a member, is going

I'm sorry to say but this one of the worst things I have yet to read, and it's not the writing or style it's the dang on characters.

Why am I getting stuck with these horrible no back-bone bitches, whiny, clingy where you just want to stick a pencil in your eye not to have to keep reading?

This book was it, each and everyone of the characters was worse than the other! Girl loses her sister and niece and an hour later she is spreading it for her ex husband clingy as heck begging him not to leave he
I don't know if I'm going crazy or what but I could have sworn someone recommended me this book and now I cant find who lol. Anyway whoever you are thanks!!! This shit was freaking awesome!!!

3 stars because the writing was quite good. However, this was the most unlikeable group of characters I have read in a while. I think the plague or a hail of bullets could have wiped out all of them and I wouldn't care. Will I read the next? I might because I'm wondering if the author can actually redeem these people and make me care.

Hmmmmm its hard to compare this book to anything because I wasn't drawn to any of the characters but that's me. But I did find it intriguing enough to finish. It diffidently had hooks to pull you in and keep the attention. I also liked the momentum of the story, so I do recommend the read with a certain amount of caution which will be listed under the spoiler alert. So onto the review.

Spoiler Alert......Spoiler Alert.....Spoiler Alert

This book needed an editor desperately. I had the killer pegged almost immediately. The Nightshade MC came off as weak and all the members came off as weak and stupid, especially Danny. Plus the members didn't even really like each other yet they were supposed to be a close brotherhood. i don't want to even start talking about the way that Missy was allowed to treat the other brothers and their old ladies.

The book contradicted itself several times, and it had characters changing personalities m

Nope! Spoilers and grammatical errors ahead - you have been warned. Disjointed, she jumps right back in bed with hero, no real apology, stuff didn't make sense, had to read a few paragraphs over to understand. Ok, I'll deal with with it, been really into the authors of the FCP, hoping this author will turn out to be good too. But guess what?!?! After all the effort, I read the reviews for the third book and the hero in this one DIES. Yup, dies. So after all the melodramatic crap, bad plotting, ...more

I read this when it initially came out and and thought it was one of the more gritty, realistic MC reads. No huge compound, that sort of thing and no one really seemed to be well off and living large. Overall I thought it was fast, full of action and suspense. My only reason for 4 stars was the relationship between Danny/Amelia felt a little too fast to me. They were separated for years and upon her return home they are immediately back together. I would almost call it insta-love had they not ...more

All the drama and suspense you expect from an MC story. Liked both Amelia and Danny's characters. The who done it part of the story was revealed relatively early on and it was no surprise at the time. There's several layers to the drama and it appears that the foundations have been laid for more than this book. Especially concerns about the local law enforcement. It was a little hard to pick the good guys from the bad!

At times the story felt like it could have been more fleshed out yet

Disappointing. Abrupt ending left me feeling unsatisfied. While the story had some interesting angles it all started to feel very manipulative. Not much heat between H/h.

Our latest journey on the Freak Circle Press MC train (no pun intended for this book) took us to the dilapidated streets of Detroit where the members of the Nightshade MC reside in Shannon Flagg's Make It Right. This story guides us through the relationship of Amelia and Danny Benson, a married couple who's been separated for seven years. Amelia returns to Detroit to launch a search for her missing sister and niece providing the cataly

This is the first book where I personally did not feel the H/h had any romantic connection what so ever, it was very surreal to read. The story line was good, the MC part was there, but very weak. I felt personally that this was a contemporary suspense romance book.

The story is about Amelia who left Detroit after her husband Danny went to jail and decided to divorce her and in the process emotionally destroy her. Seven years later Amelia is back because here sister Fiona and niece T
Rough motorcycle club romance read. Very good suspense--I didn't find the figuring out of the villain all to difficult, but I liked the way it was done. I also liked the writing style--easy to follow with realistic dialogue. Characters were well developed. The H and h were well matched. I also liked the fact I DIDN'T like all the members of the club. It's too often authors make all the secondary characters--friends, family--perfect too--it's nice to have a change. Well thought out plot line--I ...more

Has potential. The concept was good, but the execution was lacking. I didn't feel anything for the H or h....they both came off as really weak to me. Buster & Ace were supportive characters that I might could enjoy if they were given a really good storyline....but there needs to be more chemistry & emotion given. And most importantly please describe what they looked like....I didn't have a clue what the female lead looked like or anyone else, at least the color of their hair would have ...more

Maybe a quick read through or 500 would have helped in catching those nasty spelling and grammar errors? With the way it is now I had a hard time understanding the story. With a smidge of editing (or hundreds of smidges) I'd be willing to give it an extra star.

Potentially good story but felt forced and disjointed. Oddly, I don't think I liked any of the characters. It's not a bad start, but honestly the FCP is chock full of bad ass writers so she needs to step up her game!

Story line was a little predictable. It was kind of easy early on to figure out the killer. Didn't really care for any of the characters. The main characters went from not speaking or seeing each other for 7 yrs to I love you. There was potential for a better story
Had potential but a lot of things felt disjointed and the second chance part wasn't that great. Left a lot to be desired but a good start.

A história é muito boa e a trama interessante. Fiquei até as 4 da madrugada lendo.
3.0-3.5 stars
This one was hard for me to rate, while I love MC series books and I love a second chance at love story, this book lacked in the romance department, the sexy time factor was WAY low and the H/h attraction just never materialized for me. Not to mention a lot of the secondary characters fell flat for me. They were all just kind of blah.

Traditionally, I am not always a fan of the first book in the series. Sometimes it seems like an author needs to get warmed up with writing or a reade

This book was so frustrating, so unsatisfying, so depressing and now I am so upset that I read this. Amelia started out so tough, even pulling a gun on the Pres of the MC, but not long after that she forgives her ex, Danny, and then spends the rest of the book pretty much acquiescing to everything he says and does. Now Danny, he was pretty much just as frustrating. I like the alpha male archetype that you usually see in MC romances and Danny just fell flat there. Then the plot.....This is the ...more

In my reviews I guess I should start identifying myself as a member of the Freak Circle Press, although it still feels strange to be counted among these talented ladies.
More than an interesting and somewhat brave plot line, the most refreshing thing about this MC read had to be the demographic between the male and female leads. It's not the store of two strangers meeting and falling in love, this is a past relationship that ended under heartbreakingly sad circumstances coming into a new chapt

Wow. Yes there were a few grammar, misplaced and spelling errors but I still finished the book. Amelia: Prepared and willing to wait for her man to do his 5 year prison term, gets served papers. He wants a Divorce. No explanations, refuses to let her visit doesn’t take her calls and returns all her letters. So she signs and moves away. Returning only to visit her sister and niece. Danny knows he screwed up the second he received the signed divorce papers. He thought he would do right by Amelia ...more

I am blown away!

I could not put this one down. I finished at 5 a.m., finally! So many emotions about the events and characters in this story. It has everything, including great suspense. I knew early on who the bad guy was but it didn't really matter as the tale unfolded and more crap was occurring to multiply the tensions. You can feel the buildup and the pending explosion but you don't have any idea which way it's going to blow. I have been where the h is, constantly being hit with one setback

Shannon Flagg is a friend and fellow member of the Freak Circle Press.

I had sort of given up on crime books because they all seemed the same to me (really, how many people are murdered due to something that happened before the color camera was invented?) but this was a *brilliant* new twist to both the smut- and the crime genre!

In general, Shannon is amazing when it comes to plots, and this was no exception. While the plot reveals itself, we get to follow a previous couple, who truly loved each

She just seemed to conniving!!! It sealed the deal for me when there was a search at the bar and she didn't react to the info she had just heard!

First in series - Amelia and Danny

Amelia returns to Detroit because her sister and niece are missing. When she gets there she comes face to face with her ex husband and his motorcycle club. The story unfolds to find out what happened to her family and what really really happened between her and Danny seven years ago. The story unfolds with several states twists and twisted people. I was compelled by this story and will go on to the next in the series.
