Hailey was feeling alone and isolated when a friend of her parents invites her to Montana to escape the pain and mistakes of her past. Her new adventure begins when she starts working on the ranch and meets Bradley.

Bradleys past has ensured that he has no interest in love in relationships which had worked well for him until he met Hailey.

Their heads know they should keep their distance but their hearts arent listening. They are very attracted to each other but if they are to have a future

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is the first book that i have read by this author and it certainly shall not be the last.

It's a slow burn book and both characters have little issues, however both have people around them to help them past their problems and it is Bradley that steps up and pushes Hailey past and into the future.

It is Bradley's whole family and his sister and her friend that bring Hailey out of herself and into a world that

New series from Ms. MacBride. Bradley and Hailey were so good together. They both had issues in their past that was causing them to not want to find love. They had so much more in common than they realized and that is what pulled them tighter. Loved watching them find the love they both didnt want. Funny how love does that to people. It was a wonderful ride and I cant wait to read more from this author.

Hailey and Bradley have the kind of love and relationship you aspire to have; it makes your heart squeeze and your stomach flutter in envy. They both have been haunted by the ghosts of their past. They think they're broken but they aren't - the events of the past have left them shattered and the pieces of their souls splintered and unable to be pieced back together. As they heal they find that their pieces just needed each other to complete the restoration of their hearts.

Hailey is an amazing

Hailey needed to get away to catch her breath from the mistakes she's made, and the consequences of those mistakes. Some family friends recommended she head to Walker Ranch, which is where she met Bradley, who has some issues of his own, like commitment to women. They do have chemistry from the jump, but it's a slow burn romance just the same, as both needed to fix some things in their own selves, which made it realistic in the telling in my opinion. Fortunately, Bradley's family is in on this, ...more
Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
Make Me Whole by A.K. MacBride was a gorgeous slow burn that took Hailey and Bradley on a journey of self discovery of new starts and taking chances.

Hailey needs a new start after the death of her parents. Shes made some bad decisions and fresh start in a new place and around people that dont know her past is exactly what she needs to heal and mend emotionally.

Bradley has a deep rooted fear of being abandoned and left behind. Hed rather have a one night stand than a relationship with a real

This book consumed me. As soon as it ended I was left clutching my heart. Hailey and Bradley are epic. Both are haunted by their pasts. Both aren't looking for love. Both are just what each other needs. I can't get enough of their heart breaking and heart warming romance. Right away the author makes us so curious about who they are and what has broken them. As the story went on I felt like I was experiencing it all with them. This is another captivating romance by AK MacBride. I swear all her ...more

Make Me Whole is my first read by AK MacBride and also the beginning of a series, and I'm pretty impressed with both. The book is well-written with good pacing and engaging characters. Bradley and Hailey are both a bit broken and they both have some things to work through. Their chemistry is so good and they're relatable. MacBride has painted a whole cast of characters that just feel real, they're like people we could see on any street in any town, USA. And given that there are so many likable ...more

Typically, I prefer reading (and reviewing) paranormal or historical romance. Thats really my happy place when it comes to romance. I dont venture too far outside this little box. Why would I? I know what I like and I like what I like! BUTA.K. MacBride is an author I will always say yes to! Having read her Willow Creek series, I was looking forward to all the feels again and she didnt disappoint.

Swoon! This slow burn novel was the icing on the cake. Every word, every page and every chapter ignited my heart. This was a new author and I was happily surprised by her brand and creativity
The beautiful story she was able to tell was relevant, genuine and flawless. I immediately fell in love with the characters. Bradley was your broody and sexy Cowboy and Hailey was your lost angel in need of being found. The entire story from beginning to end was exactly what a romantic at heart yearns for.

This book was one of my most anticipated books of 2020 and I promise you it didn't disappoint.

Hailey has had it rough and she decides to hear to Walker Ranch for a reprieve and to mend her broken heart. Bradley has a broken heart of his own and doesn't expect it to be healed ever.

I truly loved this story. Hailey and Bradley were relatable characters that you couldn't help but fall in love with.

I loved the secondary characters in this story also, and I'm super excited to see who we get next!! I

This is the 1st in a new series and what an amazing introduction Bradley and Haileys story is! Both characters have pasts to overcome for them to move on with life, but will they take a chance? No spoilers: this is a definite must read you will not be disappointed. This is a beautifully written tale which is an emotional roller coaster journey throughout, as well having intense chemistry. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I highly recommend for all. ...more

Two broken hearts and souls find themselves pulled towards each other. I fell in love with Bradley and his need to help Hailey heal which also helped him. They both have pasts that hurt and prevent them from finding happiness but in each other, they are whole again. I loved reading their story and seeing them grow and Hailey finding what she needed in Bradly and his family. It's a sweet and endearing story.

I loved the cowboy/ranch aspect. Taking 2 people, each dealing with their heartache and not quite believing in love. She's looking for security and a place to belong. He needs someone to break down his walls. Both are mourning huge losses.The first meeting didn't go so well, but there was instant electricity. I enjoyed the slow burn of this one, and how the 2 could come together and heal each other.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

A small-town second chance contemporary romance. Well-written, emotional, angsty, sweet and slow-burn.

A new to me author and one I will definitely be reading again. The story is so well written that I could feel the range of emotions Hailey and Bradley were both experiencing. Both experienced so much but can they help each other heal and conquer their demons? A second-chance, soul searching story not to be missed.

Bradley and Hailey's story was a delicious slow burn. Full of heart, lust and sweetness. I devoured it as quickly as I could- and then the bonus chapter too! Which was the icing on an already extraordinary cake.
