I normally LOVE Erin McCarthy's work I have read over half of her books and never found one I didn't like...Until this one. I had a very hard time relating to both main characters. First kudos for the author I loved how she made being "poor" realistic and made you feel for both Cat and Heath. I enjoyed the big sisterly role that Cat was playing for Tiffany. I also enjoyed a few of the second characters.
I for one found the book pretty depressing most of the time. The book had to much drama for my liking. I also felt like the characters were under described. I had a hard time picturing what they looked liked. I also was surprised on how much I didn't like either Heath or Cat.
For Cat I found her very insecure and VERY weak. Every time she would tell Heath how she felt or confronted him she would back down and apologies or she would allow him to strip her and they would have sex. I found her a little to impulsive and to much into her relationship do stuff with others. I actually found myself wanting her to be back with Ethan more than with Heath, I feel like she was happier with Ethan than Heath.
For Heath I found him sometimes a$$ and found myself disliking him. I feel like he sometimes meant to hurt Cat and make her jealous. I also thought that he was hypocritical he would tell Cat to trust him but yet he seemed to have things he kept from her. I didn't like at how sometimes he would talk about hurting Ethan or Brian, not really a happy feeling when your trying to like the main male.
Now for the relationship I really wasn't feeling true happiness from either of them. Cat didn't like drama that's one thing she liked about her relationship with Ethan, yet all her relationship was about with Heath was drama after drama.

Well... I'm not one to diss authors because that's just plain rude.. But You Make Me had some untapped potential, and because of that I'm disappointed. Starting off just right, You Make Me brings Cat and Heath together after four years in a way that leaves you thinking something's about to go down--which is a pretty great way to grab a reader's attention. Cat hasn't seen or heard anything from Heath in over four years. Four long years of wondering if he's alive or if he's lying dead in a ditch somewhere. Nada. Not a peep from the boy she fell in love with, the boy she thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. Newly Caitlyn is put together and stable--a far cry from the wild spirit running around in Valhaven. She has the perfect boyfriend and a pretty cool best friend, and she's got a stable career ahead of her. Best of all? She's just gotten engaged to boy of her dreams. However, all her carefully laid plans start crumbling down the second she sets eyes on Heath once again.

I found Caitlyn a little hard to connect with. She starts like any other New Adult protagonist--someone very dear to her hurt her, but that was years ago, and know she's made a name for herself. I've heard it (well, more like read it) all before and for a minute I thought McCarthy was going to do something different with Caitlyn. But no. As soon as Heath comes strolling back into her life she finds herself second-guessing every single decision she's made for the past four years. I could understand that. After all, even I don't think a free spirit could make it as a mortgage broker. However, what I just could get past was her indecision when it came to Ethan and Heath. Caitlyn was getting reading to marry the guy, for heaven's sake.

Not poorly written, but such a cheap knockoff of Wuthering Heights that, never one to want to leave a book partially read, I had to force my way through the second half of the book. Instead of Heathcliff, Cathy and Edgar, we have Heath, Cat and Ethan. Both involving foster siblings who fell in love and were torn apart, with Cathy/Cat reinventing herself from a wild spirit to a society person, both Heathcliff/Heath basically swindling their childhood home from Cathy/Cat's brother by feeding his vice, Heathcliff/Heath flirting with Cathy/Cat's (almost) sister in law and Cathy/Cat practically becoming undone when Heathcliff/Heath did not pay her enough attention. It's as if the author read WH and was angry with how Bronte ended the story so she figured she could do it shorter and better.

4 STARS!!!

There are certain words in blurbs that set off alarms for me, and by alarms I mean the kind that make me stalk the author/publisher/PA get more info on. In the blurb for You Make Me, the words "foster brother" did it for me. I was extremely interested in seeing how this would play out and I'm really happy to say that I think this is Erin McCarthy's best work to date: she's written a stormy, passionate but believable second chance romance with a healthy dose of angst and relatable, level-headed characters.

The book starts off with a short but fantastic prologue! Then fast forward four years where Cat is now a well-known, all-around golden girl in college with an equally amazing and popular guy Ethan as her boyfriend. On the night of her junior year Homecoming dance where everything planned goes along accordingly, out of the blue, Heath appears and stuns Cat. Having left her when she was sixteen and never contacting her in the past four years, Cat is shocked, relieved, and angry to see him so naturally I could understand her conflicted feelings: on one hand she's desperate to reach out to him and on the other, she's with Ethan, a guy she knows is good for her.

"How could I explain that Heath was the past and Ethan was the future? That one I had chosen and one had chosen me? That Ethan represented everything I had always craved, but Heath was everything I needed?"

And as cliché as it sounds, there will always be a certain allure for "the one that got away," which is why I totally sympathize, understand, and connect with Cat's character.

Though this portion of the book was angsty and somewhat frustrating, it was realistic and completely character-driven.
