Editorial Reviews


"Steamy, poignant, and won't want to put it down!" -- New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jen McLaughlin
"MAKE IT COUNT was like a breath of fresh air! Very clever and sweet, funny and sexy. You won't read this without smiling and sighing and swooning--sometimes all at once." --Christina Lee, author of the Between Breaths series
"Fun, fresh, and romantic, this book kept me enthralled (and swooning hard) while shining a light on important issues often ignored. A witty heroine sets the tone and the protective, loyal hero brings the heart. Nerdy IS the new black, ladies, and Alec Stone is hot!" -- Rachel Harris, author of SEVEN DAY FIANCE
"Math nerds, funny chicks, and awesome side characters, oh my! This book had it all." -- USA Today Bestselling Author Cindi Madsen
"In short, MAKE IT COUNT is a fun, utterly original take on new adult that will have you laughing and swooning from the first page to the last. If you're looking for a fun read, you've found it!"  -- Melissa West, author of PIECES OF OLIVIA

About the Author

Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.

She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators, and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids, and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.

I've been excited to read Make it Count since I first saw the cover and read the synopsis. It sounded witty and like it would be right up my alley. And guess what? It totally was.
I love a book with a smart boy, especially when they’re also funny and sexy. These things are not mutually exclusive! Thank you to Megan Erickson for wrapping all these characteristics into one magically delicious package named Alec. Seriously, Alec. This guy was adorable. He wasn't perfect – if he was, this book wouldn't be happening because he wouldn't be crushing on his best friend's girl – but he was so very close. Kat was a likable girl. She's the type of girl I'd be friends with in real life. She, too, had flaws and it took her some time to accept them, but with the help of Alec, she was able to really come into her own during this book. She was in a relationship with an obviously wrong guy – even if we didn't know just HOW wrong at first – and I was never on their side. Kat and Alec, however? Purely brilliant. They were opposites in a lot of ways, but they worked so well together. They had TONS of chemistry and it led to several hot moments – and more than a few swoons.

The pacing of this book was fantastic. It grabbed me from the beginning and the plot flowed right up until I found myself at the last page. There were plenty of feels, but they were never too angsty or unbelievable. No tears for me in this book, but lots of goofy smiles as I read Kat and Alec's banter.

Megan Erickson brings a fresh voice to new adult with Make it Count. It was funny, sexy and sweet. She's definitely landed on my auto-buy author list and I can't wait to read Max's story in the second book in this series, Make it Right.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

This book was recommended by a friend who knew I was on a contemporary read kick. I needed something to follow up a book hangover so I went ahead and loaded this one up. I'm glad I did.

Blurb from Goodreads;
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.

I love a good sexy geek and Erickson hit the nail on the head with Alec. Glasses: check. Nerdy tutor: check. Sexy body: check. What's not to like. He can tutor me any time! He's quirky and funny. He's sexy and warm. I wanted him all to my self. he doesn't want to enjoy spending time with his roommates girl, but he does. He also sees how his roommate treats her and he doesn't like it. He knows they are not meant for each other, but he doesn't want to get in the way. I love that he's torn between wanting to protect Kat and wanting to stay away.

Then there's Kat.

First off, Nerds are definitely hot. Okay, now that that is off my chest, lets move on :)

I really enjoyed this book. I started reading it on a Sunday night before my work week started back up. I read up until 11:30 and said okay, I really need to get some sleep. I couldn't wait to get off work so I could finally finish it.

Kat was a character that pulls at your heart right away. You feel so bad for her and the way she struggles with school. She tries and tries but just doesn't seem to be able to get the grades. You can tell it is something that really bothers her, no matter how beautiful she is on the inside and out. She spends her time finding guys that won't try to dig into who she really is so she still can just be in her mind stupid without feeling so bad. It was hard to read about her that way because you can see how wonderful she really is. She is sarcastic, perverted, and just all around goofy. I really enjoyed her as a character. She had her flaws where she took things the wrong way, but you know from what she has gone through you do understand even if you want to shake her a little.

Alec. Dreamy Alec. I love me some nerd, that is for sure. So he of course what a character that I didn't only like but drooled over too. Some of the dirty scenes I will be shameless and say that I felt anyone would be lucky to see the man nakey!You learn more about Alec as the book goes and he also steals your heart. The poor guy also doesn't get a break but he does all he can to try to fix the problems in his life. Poor Alec doesn't understand the female mind, even when one of his best friends is a lesbian. He has his times of saying the wrong thing and finding out later what he did wrong. He has a bit of a temper from time to time, but yet so does Kat.
