I'll Make You Mine by Author Gia Riley is an NA novel.

Well, crap. Dylan has himself in quite the predicament. Wanting one girl, but taking what you can get, is one thing. Knowing the girl you want and the one your have are twin sisters, well that's just brought awkward to a while new level and began this too-fun-to-put-down story.

"I’ve had Zoe on a pedestal from the day our paths crossed. Since then, nobody has come close to making me feel the way she does."

I’ll Make You Mine by Gia Riley was so much fun to read. A friends to lovers romance that is fun and sweet to read.

Zoe and Dylan are the best of friends. They are always there for each other and value their friendship. But when Dylan realizes he is developing feelings outside of friendship for Zoe, does he stand a chance?

Dylan was so sweet, caring and just a good guy. I loved him and how he was always there for her. On the other hand, Zoe likes to keep things the way they are. She takes everyt

I’ll Make You Mine
By: Gia Riley
4 Stars

Zoe and Keely are twins, polar opposite is the best way to describe them. Zoe is the book nerd and Keely is the outgoing, multiple guy kind of gal. Looking out for her older sister, Keely wants Zoe to be prepared in life…mostly her nonexistent dating life. Being the more experienced Keely is just looking out for her sister…in the best way possible….

A huge snooze fest, I'd say. This book is bland and if it were a song, I would describe it as monotonous.

"Everyone deserves a second chance, even those who lead with hate. They’re the ones who need forgiveness the most."

I'm going to start off by saying that while I have read and loved every book Gia Riley has written this one has quickly taken its place as favorite of all. It has EVERYTHING, ALL THE FEELS, from happiness and tears, to angst and sorrow. This author knows how to engulf you in the world you are reading, to encompass your heart and soul. Dylan and Zoe's love story was one for the ages,

Oh happy days.. Another book from this lady and I'm on cloud nine and I'm not exaggerating. If you had the pleasure to read any book from her you know why I'm saying this.
Gia Riley has a simple, heartfelt and intense writing that will leave you breathless and amazed.
I'll Make You Mine is her latest release and tells the stories of Zoe and Dylan.
Zoe is a sweet and reserved girl that wants to graduate college and get on with her life. She is the total opposite of her twin sister. She's a loner

4.5 Stars!

This was just so super cute and funny. This book was such a breath of fresh air. All the recent books I’ve read and/or that are out there are super deep and intense and full of drama but this was just sweet, loving and had me laughing so hard at times. This author did an amazing job blending the humor and emotional with Dylan and Zoe. Where it could’ve been all super emotional she threw in some quirky comments that made this just an absolute delight to read.

Ah, Dylan & Zoe! Best friends who make a go at more. Their story was a bit more angsty than I was expecting. I liked them both and enjoyed the story for the most part, but was also annoyed by how long it took w/in the story for them to get together. And it wasn't so much the length of time as it was the obviousness of how they were both feeling mixed w/ the doubt Zoe still let rule her. Even after they'd been together for a bit, Zoe's insecurities still felt ... off. Not sure how to explain it, ...more

Dylan and Zoe have been best friends for years. Both have strong feelings for each other but are apprehensive in acting on them as they don't want to ruin their relationship.

Dylan is ready to take the next step, he just has to get Zoe on the same page.

Zoe is so sweet and innocent. It is so cute the way that Dylan flusters her.

Zoe has a twin sister, Keely, who is determined to get her sister to 'live a little'. She really gets her into some uncomfortable situations. Though the pole dancing lesson
Not only am I in love with this book and the characters, but I am also in love with Gia Riley!!! Why, oh why did I wait so long to read something from this immensely talented writer?! I’ll Make You Mine is another top 10 read of 2017 for me!!!!

Zoe and Dylan have been best friends since high school even though Dylan’s heart has always belonged to her from the very beginning. That was evident in the flashback Riley gave us when they first spoke to each other in the gym. Oh, my heart was lost to Dy

This was my first read by this author, and I must say, I am hooked! I am such a sucker for a well written friends to lovers story, and I'll Make You Mine is a perfect example.
Zoe's independence, determination, and hilarious banter had me loving her from the start. Having a twin who is your complete opposite cannot be easy, but Zoe deals with her wild sister Keely, the best way she knows how.

This one was a good read. Gia Riley is one of my one click authors. I rarely cry when reading stories but this author is one that has made me cry before so when I read the title I was like I hope she doesn't make me cry. Ok so it was close at one point but I didn't cry.

Zoe and Keely are twins but they are nothing alike. Zoe is more about books and Keely is more about guys. Zoe is funny and super klutzy. She;s really a great down to earth character. Dylan is Zoe's best friend. He's always wanted

I'll make you mine by Gia Riley was so sweet, so romantic. Was it all sweetness? NO, there was tears, heart break and angst but it was all woven so well into the story. I really enjoyed Zoe and Dylan's story. Zoe can be really crazy (not in a bad way) but Dylan is so steady and reliable that he balances her out nicely.

There were some hot scenes that added to the novel nicely. Lots of laughs especially because of Zoe's "craziness".

All in all it was a very enjoyable read.

Is it cheesy to say I love "Young Love?" Oh well! Haha I'm not really sure anyone else writes it like Gia. She takes a friends to lovers story line and has you swooning, sighing and rooting for their HEA. Dylan and Zoe's journey was so sweet. His determination and patience, her quirky, timid, and clumsy self all made me love them even more. I totally held my breath in some parts and then I totally laughed so hard at 2 am reading that I had to cover my face with a pillow. There was definitely som ...more

This story has everything you are looking for. It is beautiful and angsty. It is sweet and romantic and it is sexy and fun. It is a combination that makes for one great story. Oh and did I mention that it is friends to lovers? Definitely one of my favorite tropes. I was involved in this story. I found myself yelling at the characters, smiling and laughing and feeling all the emotions they were feeling.

I could not put this book down. I love Gia and her writing never ever disappoints. It is alway

Her bio says " GIA RILEY writes because if she doesn’t, she’ll go crazy." That is a lie- direct quote from Maury Povich.

Gia Riley writes so she can maintain her place at Satan's Tea time. She laughs at your tears and plots the destruction of your feeble unsuspecting heart.

Perhaps, I came on a bit strong, you say. Ha! Clearly you haven't read I'll Make You Mine. Btw, Dylan is MINE. He got over Zoe and he and I live happily ever after the end- just ask Gia. Or don't she will just lie and tell you

Zoe Allen has always been the serious & shy twin, which has her sister pushing for her to live up the college experience. But Zoe just wants to study to become a doctor, and hang out with her best friend, Dylan. Lately, she's been feeling more pressure from her sister to hook up with a random guy, and this has her thinking about the feelings that she has for her best friend, the ones she's too scared to act on because she doesn't want to lose him. Dylan Turner has been in love with Zoe for years ...more
I'd say 3.5 stars. This one I liked SO much better than the first Gia Riley book I read, In Pieces. I'll Make You Mine was much better.

The Plot: Dylan and Zoe have been best friends since ninth grade, though Dylan has wanted more since the beginning. Concerned he was going to scare her away, Dylan first invites Zoe to the Valentine's Day as friends, giving her a traditional candy bracelet, but he gets stuck in the friend-zone. Even though he always makes sure to bring her to all the dances,

I really enjoyed this book. I actually read it in just a couple of days after starting it, because I found it so cute and adorable.

This is a sweet kind of story. We have the best friend falling for each other, but they don’t want to ruin what they have story and I felt it was done very sweetly and just so pure. On one side, we have Zoe Allen, who’s this girl that’s so devoted to her classes and getting into med school she doesn’t have tim

What a fantastic story. I'll Make You Mine was a awesome friend to lovers novel that held me captive until the end. This was my first Gia Riley novel and what an introduction it was to her style of writing. It was amazing the level of emotion that was written into the story and even more amazing was how easy it was to feel all the emotions.
This new adult novel really had it all, friendship, twin bond, love, and heartache all tightly wrapped up with some amazing characters who all held your atte

I'll make you mine is the stand alone novel by Gia Riley. It's the story of Zoe and Dylan two people who have been friends for a long time and now their feelings for each other start to change. Dylan decides to make Zoe jealous, by having a relationship with her twin sister (insert dafuq here, because the earth has about 4 billion other women Dylan could have used), but nothing happens between them so I had one less thing to worry about.

A girl ready to fall in love plus a guy who only wants one girl should be a match made in heaven. But it isn't.

Oh holy crap! I don't think my heart has quite recovered yet. It was definitely invested in the reading of this book and about thumped out of my chest the last 20% or so!! But Zoe and Dylan, they're pretty dang special!!

Best friends to lovers, this is my favorite type of book! It's always been. I can never wait to dig right in. It just, it makes my heart happy to see a friendship evolve. And to see two of the perfect people find the other part of each other than just friendship!

Gia Riley is a magical storyteller. I'll Make You Mine will make you fall for your first-love all over again.

If you believe in young love then this is the perfect story for you. I fell in love with Zoe and Dylan. Their relationship will certainly tug at your heart, make you weep a couple times, then leave you feeling all warm and cozy inside. THIS is what true love is all about!

This was not the typical romantic rom/com. The story was so well written, characters so well developed and so relatable, I found myself laughing and growling at the antics of the main characters Zoe, Keely and Dylan. Their chemistry was fresh, funny and moving. Behind this quirky college student romance there was a charming story of family and lov

​Initially, I wasn't sure I was going to feel about this book. The Prologue really sets the stage and I wasn't sure if I was going to like Dylan very much based on his actions. That being said, things didn't go the way that I initially thought which I was happy about. I really enjoy quirky heorines and Zoe takes the cake. For as smart as she is, Zoe is absolutely clueless for a good chunk of the book. She's frustrating and rambles about the most random things at the most inopportune times but Gi ...more

Friends to lovers and a love worth fighting for. I love the stories that come out of Gia Riley. She always seems to grab my attention first with her blurbs, then with her gorgeous covers, then from the very first page of her stories.
This book will make you believe in young love.
Zoe and Dylan with bring you on a journey filled with friendship and love.
Dylan has a heart of gold, he fights for what he wants, and that's Zoe.the way he sees her as perfect no matter her mishaps.
