Make Me Lose by Ember LeighMake Me Lose on July 23, 3019
Format: eARC
Grayson Daly and I aren’t just rivals. We’re enemies.  Born minutes apart on the same day in the same hospital, our parents thought this meant we were somehow destined to be together. We knew were we just destined to beat each other. Competition boiled over until junior year, when the cold war turned into an unexpected peace offering. Maybe my hormones allowed me to notice his broad shoulders, stormy gray-blue eyes, and soccer star’s chiseled frame. But after I fell for him…he stomped all over my heart. Ten years later, I’m at the top of the realty game in Bayshore and Grayson is just a distant memory. Until he shows up from NYC, his ego bigger than a skyscraper, and asks me to sell the house he recently inherited. It’s easy to say no. Even though I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to dangle from in strong arm battles. But I forgot that Gray doesn’t take no for an answer. And that he isn’t content unless he’s defeating me. He butts into my evenings on the boat. Ropes me into water skiing battles. Even shows up at the bar and creates a scene when I’m scouting a date to the upcoming Bicentennial Ball. It’s almost like he’s gunning to win me. But if he wins, that means I lose. And I’m not ready to cede victory just yet.

My Review

Grayson Daly is HOT! I absolutely loved Make Me Lose. I loved Hazel, I loved their rivalry. I loved the realness of the relationship. Their honestly isn’t anything I didn’t love about this book. I’m a sucker for a good enemies to lovers romance and Make Me Lose fit the bill. I really enjoyed seeing Hazel stand her ground and make Gray work for it. They’ve had such a long rivalry and it looked like they’d had a chance before but something got in the way and that something made the sparks and fire between them that much hotter, that much angrier. And that much more combustable. Gray and Hazel feel like real people. Their love story is so relatable. And I loved those small moments of vulnerability that Grayson displayed that were so unlike him that they really made your heart melt. I devoured this book in one day and highly recommend it to anyone who loves Enemies to Lovers. It is un-put-down-able
