This is a New Adult title - Meant for readers 18 and older.
In a small town, it's hard to recover from being dumped by your high school sweetheart. That's just what Briana has to do after Colin leaves her to follow his dreams. She focuses her energy into her friendships and the pursuit of her own goal of becoming a chef. Just when she finally feels like she's on the right path, he comes back to town.
Colin knew breaking up with Briana before leaving for college was the right thing to do. He was determined to leave small-town life behind forever, and that included his high school girlfriend. But when a sports injury puts him on the sidelines, he's forced to return home. Seeing Briana again brings back a lot of memories, and Colin wonders if he made the right decision. It doesn't take long for him to realize he wants her back, and this time, he wants to make it last.
“Make it Last” was a very quick read in my mind. It seriously took about an hour from beginning to the end for me. (I spent more time trying to uploading the book to my Kindle than actually reading. A big thanks to Lopez for helping us out with a new formatted file.) Lopez aided this by writing the characters in a way in which the reader could connect with them; thus making the story flow smoothly.
I found myself liking every character that Lopez presented. Each had their own unique personality. For this book, my favorite was Colin. Yeah, he is a little bad in the beginning because he breaks up with Briana however; he definitely tries to make up for it.
I liked how Lopez has set herself up to create a series with these characters. Of course, “Make it Last” is about Briana and Colin but Lopez has introduced the reader to several sets of possible couples in which she could continue and write about and I hope that she does. I am excited to see how these other characters are going to connect.
Bethany Lopez wanted to participate in a guest post for our review of Make It Last. When asked to give us something she would like to share; she offered a playlist to accompany the story. I love posts like this. It give the story even more emotion when you can link it to a song. Check it out below. She said that she was in a major country phase at the time of writing this book, and links that to the reason it is set in Small Town Texas. Thank you Bethany for taking the time to create this post, and allow us here at The BookWhisperer to share more about your story.
