Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend’s gorgeous best friend, Alec…who just so happens to be her brand new math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?
Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends—both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It’s safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm’s reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.
Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She’s adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He’d never stab his best friend in the back…
But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can’t be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust Alec may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it.
Sweet. Quirky. Adorable. Light. Fun.
All words that perfectly describe Make It Count.
Make It Count by Megan Erickson was one adorable read. Make It Count was so incredibly sweet, and so were these characters. My love for Alec Stone is big, people. He is the definition of sexy-nerdy chic and I just need a smart college boy like him in my life. And just look at that name. It’s one hell of a strong name. 😉
Kat Caruso is just all over the place. She is wild, quirky, funny, and a very unique and enjoyable heroine. Although I couldn’t find myself relating to Kat 100%, her character was still one I really enjoyed reading about, and I absolutely loved the way she was when she was with Alec.
I also totally fell in love with the scenes that involved the secondary characters. Dani, Max, Cam, and even Lea, made for some awesome and hilarious scenes! They also provided just the right amount of angst and drama *cough*Max*cough*.
Speaking of, the drama and angst in this book, I thought, was EXTREMELY well done. I actually didn’t see that one twist coming! You know the one with Max and blah blah blah. Anyways, I loved how Alec and Kat both had their own, distinct, drama to deal with, as well as the drama they were going through together.
Kat and Alec are a pair to root for. The way they are together is frankly just adorable, beautiful, funny, real, and so incredibly sweet! I love these two together. After reading this you will totally wish you had a guy as sweet, sexy, and supporting as Alec Stone, and even a friend as caring as Kat Caruso.
I definitely recommend Make It Count to anyone who’s looking for a fun, sweet, romantic read about a college couple who set the standards real high. <3
