What do you do when a girl comes back for some petty revenge against you and seduction is part of her game?

I love this series so freaking much. And this book is close to being my favorite of them all. It was good on so many levels it’s hard to find words to transfer my thoughts to this screen. It had all the goods. If fact it had all the greats. It was so good I’m starting to speak in the abstract, lol.

Okay, but seriously it’s been a really long time if ever that a book had me laughing so hard that tears were streaming down my face. My family thought I’d lost my damn mind I was laughing s

I am a huge fan of this series. From Kade to Rye all the way to Maverick and everyone else what has had and hasn't had their story. Sterling Shores is a place that I wish was real because all the characters are so amazing. When I heard that this one was coming out I was drooling! Not only because of the cover but because I was excited for more!

Harley iterated me but in the best way. When reading, you will understand what I mean. It took her time to find her confidence but once she has it, she's

Another great addition :) I loved being with the Sterlings again!

I loved both Dale and Harley! Dale is just so sweet, and I love how strong Harley was as the boss of her company.

I loved that Dale did proper grovelling in the end after he hurt her. And I empathised deeply with Harley!

I should mention in the beginning , since Harley went to school with the Sterlings, I disliked so many other characters more.

Firstly, never liked Rain but now I even dislike her MORE after Tria and Kod

***5+ Stars***

It is no secret that I am obsessed with C.M. Owens and her books. So it shouldn't be a surprise that I absolutely loved Make Me.

This is Dale and Harley's story. She has had a long time crush on Dale since they were in High School. Dale being a guy never really paid attention to how she really felt about him. Fast forward a couple of years and they are both grown ups and Harley has just moved back into town. The feelings she had for Dale are still buried deep below the
Chasing Away Reality
This book is absolutely fabulous! It's funny, sexy, and gave me all kinds of feels. This is my second read by C.M Owens, and if all of her female leads are this strong, feisty, and confident, I'll definitely be back for more. Something else I love about this book is that there is little angst, a whole lot of revenge plotting, and straight communication. Granted your going to get the whole break-up/misunderstanding type scene that puts a wedge between the couple, but that's expected and not over- ...more

It's like going home after a few months away! You settle in, you catch up with old friends and family, you laugh at their problems, you rejoice when things have gone right and you feel right along with them when they're sad. You want to smack their heads together when they fight but most of all you love them.

I'm not even gonna cover it up or try and make out I'm unbiased. I'm not unbiased this is one of my all time fave series and authors. I don't care if you know this. This is fact! End of! So

DNF Chapter 17.

I had tried several times, but I was unable to relate to either characters. It has a NA feel to it, and unfortunately, not my cup of tea.

The heroine decided to exact revenge because the hero stood her up during high school prom seven years ago. She, as a CEO, had decided to set up the headquarters of her firm in a small town, so that she can rub it in the face of her former tormentors in high school....It does not make any sense, and seem like a illogical a

I read the blurb and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the book I just knew it was going to be fun.
The book starts off in the past with the guys in school. It was here that I fell in love with Harley her story is one that many will relate to. I adore her, she reminds me of myself at school geeky and awkward and unsure where she fits in.
She returns home years later with one thing on her mind revenge now I know you should turn the other cheek but I was cheering her on. From the start

Are you a closet nerd out for revenge?
Do you relish the underdog getting the win?
Does a small (or extremely large) part of you wish karma happened where you could witness it?

Then one click now.
Still not sure...

Do you like interconnected stand alones that focus on an awesome group of eclectic individuals who would overwhelm and make you feel at home all at once?

Dale sterling. Ok so have you read the other books? No? You should go do that simply because this series is amazing but this can work as a stand alone. But let me tell you, you slowly want and need to know more about Dale. And his book is everything I wanted it to be. Also Harley is definitely the one to give him a run for his money. This series is seriously one that stays with you no matter how much time passes and it makes it easy to pick up the newest release with ease. The author makes these ...more

I love this author but this book wasn't as funny or as captivating as her other books but it still was a great book. However there were still a couple scenes that had me chuckling and others that had me holding my breath from the angst. I'm waiting, (a bit impatiently) for Britt's story.

Back to Sterling Shore… It is almost like coming home to your favorite relatives that you see rarely.
That being said I was so grateful when Make Me appeared on my kindle and it was as good as all the other Sterling Shore books before. After not connecting with Worth It I so wished that Make Me would be different and it was. I loved it. The Sterlings and all their partners and friends are one of my favorite book family and I didn’t know how

I admit I was late to the party with this series, being that I only read book 1 about a month ago and devoured the whole lot within about a week. And this book was certainly no different.

I always liked Dale, he was quiet but observant and smart throughout the series so I was excited to get into his head. I loved and related to Harley from page one and it was completely obvious that they were meant to be together. Part of this book were just down right hilarious in only a way that CM Owens can b

I, like so many other C.M. Owens fans waited a long time to see Dale Sterling really fall in love. And Make Me did not disappoint.

Dale and Harley have the same incredible mix of humor and vulnerability that is a hallmark of Owens' writing. You love to see them laugh and you hold your breath when they fall or cry. In the case of Dale, we've seen him be the mature rock for his friends for the whole series. Watching him stumble, bumble, and blow super hot for Harley was so damn awesome

I really freaking adore Sterling Shore series. Make Me is another awesome addition to it. I enjoyed it very much. I almost peed myself laughing so much. There was also a moment, where I even cried like my heart was breaking. Yeah, you need to be prepared for fun and some heartbreak.

Dale is amazing. I love him. I was introduced to other side of him. Hilarious one, even though he wasn't trying to be funny. I even now I'm chuckling, remembering his experiments. Lol

Book 10 in the Sterling shores series. You would think the story would be running thin, I mean how can she keep you gripped and coming back for more? The answer?

Sheer writing genius!

You don't expect Dale to be anything more then good old dependable stable Dale. Harley is a whirlwind that takes everyone by surprise. I absolutely adore her character and loath her past, girls are vicious. I never thought I would hate Dale but I wanted in on that girls night because he didn't deserve he

Every single time a book in this series releases I fucking devour it. There is a reason this series is my all time favorite. It's pee your pants hilarious, with swoony male characters, some kick ass female leads and each book gets better and better.

Dale Sterling the mature reasonable one. He is usually I would say the level headed one of the group sitting back and observing all around him, the voice of reason you could say. Well ent

Make me - C.m Owens

This has IT ALL! The sterling shore series does not disappoint! Their will never be too many books in this series, nothing slips, for me they're just perfect!

This had me giggling, LAUGHING, covering my face, cringing, crying and a couple of things really hit me in the gut that I can relate to that had me an emotional mess. But that's not a bad thing, sometimes it's good to read these things outside my head, and for someone else to have written them with

Lots of people say this about books but it's true for me here, if I could give it more than five stars I would! I knew I was going to like it, I didn't expect to love it as much as I did. I read it twice in a two days. I don't want to read another book, I'm enjoying the afterglow of this book! Dale was so much more than he's ever been portrayed in the other series. He's still very in tune to people but I felt I got to really know him. Harley was an incredible inspiration to women in books and wo ...more

I have been recommended this series for some time now and this book was the perfect prelude to a series I know is gonna be fabulous.
I had not expected this book to be so hilarious and memorable!!!
Harley has had a troubling childhood and she is back for revenge. She is a rich, successful and a badass businesswoman. Dale Sterling does not know what hits him coming face -to-face from a blast from the past. It starts off as a revenge plot, turns to massive confusion, heartwarming romance

once again Ms Owens has knocked it out of the park, I devour everything she writes and this was no exception.

As always this had great humour which had me lol and getting funny looks from strangers, had the perfect amount of angst and hot moments and we got to find out more about another member of the Sterling shore crew whilst keeping up with the old ones too.
