Can their hunger be satisfied?

There is just something about a tropical setting that lets people drop their guard and do things they normally wouldn't do in their everyday lives, and that is exactly what happens with Allie and Roman. Allie never expected to have a vacation fling let alone one with Roman, the man she was currently avoiding at home because he was trying to get her to sell her business to an investor he had that was interested in it. Problem was she was so good at avoiding him that she didn't know what he looked ...more

So, am I shallow if I admit I read this book because of the cover? For real, I wanna be with this guy in that blue water. Now I could be in the beautiful blue water here on my island, but only it's winter so boo! Besides the eye-catching cover, I also read Make Me Crave because I'm a Katee Robert fan as a lot of you know. With this short book, I was expecting fun tropical smut and it delivered exactly that.

Allie Landers was one badass heroine. She was a plus-sized (which umm freaking finall

Make Me Crave is the second book in Kate's Make Me series, which I would describe as short erotic romances. I did not read the first and still enjoyed this one.

This book read very quickly and what I would surmise as day beach read that will definitely leave you hot - so be by a pool. LOL

I won't go into details because of how short the book is - I would end up surmising the entire thing. What I will say is that this book will appeal to some and to others (like myself) will be just be ok. It's not
Roman can be quite ruthless when it comes to business and since Allie is determined to avoid him at her work place he thinks nothing of following her to a Caribbean island paradise where she’s taking a much-needed holiday. Allie has put her heart and soul into building a successful gym and using the profits to run a women’s shelter, she sees the two parts of her business working hand in hand and the last thing she wants is a large investor to come along who is more interested in profit than help ...more

I really liked this one.
Roman is determined to make his deal. He needs to set up a meeting with Allie, he has an investor interested in buying out her gym and expanding, but Allie won’t even meet to talk about it, it’s a no go. She even escapes to a tropical island to hide from him, while the mounds of debts grow, slowly sinking her gym and it’s attached women’s shelter. But Allie needs her short break, she hasn’t had one for years and the gyms problems will have to wait until she returns.

A sexy hot summer enemies-to-lovers read with a serious side note.

The idea of getting away to a private island, leave all the worries behind and just enjoy sun, water and a hot guy is just every girl’s dream!

I love Allie and her passion for the things she loves. I love her persistence and the she doesn’t cave just because of a hot guy.
Roman is so much more than the first glimpse you get. He has the heart in the right spot. On top of looking like Adonis and being really smart...what more can you

3.5 starts

Roman and Alli hook up on an island vacation with lots and lots of hot sex. It kind-of continues when they get back to real life. She has trust issues which almost ends them, but of course, true love conquers all. Then just ends..HEA and boom done.

Make me crave is the second book in the series by Katee Robert. I have to admit that I liked the part when they were on the island because I got the feeling of something temporary and I felt like I was at the resort with them. I was really digging that part and overall I have many warm feelings about it. I would have been fine if our couple hadn't ended up together. I felt for the first time, that our couple had a one week stand and nothing more. Maybe the part after the resort is the problem. O ...more

Immediately finishing Make Me Want , I jumped into Make Me Crave and it was the BEST decision ever. This series, thus far,the characters are strong, independent, and successful individuals. They're equally likable as they are easy to relate with.

I loved Roman and Allie! I love how confident Roman is, but also like how Allie calls him on his nonsense. They are a perfect match. I also love that Allie was a curvy and CONFIDENT woman. Katee Robert made sure that regardless of the woman size, she wa

Although short Make Me Crave packed a punch . It was hot, steamy, funny and highlighted a serious issue. I enjoyed this book quite a bit especially the heat between the main characters. It was palpable, practically leapt off the pages. I loved the chemistry between these two plus the bit of hate that was mixed in. If you're in the mood for a quick, steamy book I definitely recommend this.

Trying to do the right thing leads in a naughty direction. Make Me Crave is that perfect blend of spice and nice with an overlay of humor and heart. Allie and Roman have a chemistry that's off the charts. Pushing buttons as they ignite heat. Robert is a magnet for steamy romance that hits on every beat of my heart. Love breathes fire and Crave delivers.

This is just a great story to read in one sitting by a pool, I loved the tropical island setting and the hot and steamy fling the characters had!
it was really fast-paced, with little plot, but nevertheless very enjoyable!

Hot, sexy read with a hero who goes after what he wants but has to learn to deal with the heroine who is a protector makes for one hot read.

A fairly short read filled to the brim with romantic escapades on a paradise island. Of course off-island life is complicated for both Allie and Roman. She has something he wants and he’s got something she desperately needs. But fierce independence and a wary nature prevent her from trusting that he will do the right thing. Whether it is her business or her heart.

Roman Bassani has been known to go above and beyond to close deals for his investors. That's why when Allie Landers turns him down, he's doesn't blink at following her on her tropical island vacation hoping to get her to change her mind.

Allie has a lot of pride for the non-profit women's shelter / gym that she runs and she's not ready to let some unknown investor take away everything she's worked hard for despite the company being on its last leg.

Another hot and steamy read from Katee Robert, this one with a bit of twist on the enemies to lovers story line.

I really loved the whole set up of this one. Allie and Roman only know each other by name, so when attraction finds them in bed together before even knowing each other’s name, neither can ignore the chemistry and passion that they ignite in one another – even though they are supposed to be on opposite sides of a business deal, something that takes both of them by surprise when they fin

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first book in Katee Robet's Make me series I jumped at the chance to read this 2nd novel following the romance of Gideon's friend Roman- I seriously had to giggle at the synopsis on the back which claims the hero and heroine have an accidental one night stand - ummm not quite sure how a one night stand can be accidental but anyway....

Let's start this review with the facts this is a hot steamy read with two main characters who know what they want. But it's more than being hot and steamy because it involves a female main character that has taken a very rough childhood and used it to help other women in abusive situations to have a safe shelter while using her gym, Transcend, to help finance it in part.

Now it gets a little tricky. Allie is pigheaded and fighting change, so s

Roman has made a successful living out of matching struggling businesses with investors however he is finding Allie a challenge he hadn’t expected. He has gotten tired of her avoiding him, so he has arranged to vacation at the same island that she will be for the next week where she will have no choice but to listen to him.

Allie’s past inspired her to start a woman’s gym and shelter, but she is struggling to make it viable. As fundraising is not her forte she has been taking profits from the gym

Her best friend makes her go on vacation where she meets a man that she's instantly attracted to, and forgets her troubles for a little bit when they hook up. However, that all changes when she finds out that he's Roman Bassani, a man who has been trying to hunt her down to buy her gym for an investor, so she feels duped. And Roma ...more

Make Me Crave is the second book in the Make Me series. I didn't read the first one, but this one held up well as a stand alone. There were references to events that happened in the first book involving Roman, but they didn't seem important to this book. This is Roman and Allie's story.

For the most part, I enjoyed the book. If you blush easily, you may want to read this alone. The loves scenes are pretty steamy! I did like both Roman and Allie and they had great chemistry together. Alli

Wowza - Allie and Roman are HAWT!!

This is the 2nd book in the Make Me series which is part of the steamy Harlequin DARE book line. You don't have to read Book 1, but I do recommend it as you meet Roman in that one and it alludes to aspects from Book 1 which will enhance the story.

Romance novels often require you to suspend belief, and this one definitely required that because in any other setting, a man chasing a woman down on vacation is creepy and stalker AF. But there’s a good reason why Roman is so intent on his investor taking over Allie’s business and it didn’t come across as creepy as it might seem. The chemistry between Allie and Roman was sizzling from the get-go, and I was pulling for them to make it. They both brought a ton of baggage into their vacation fling ...more
