After graduating from Bowler University, the last place Cam Ruiz ever expected to find himself is his hometown. A bad job as a bouncer and worry over his mom’s health make living in Paradise anything but. There’s only one thing that can make his return any harder—running into the only girl he’s ever loved.
Tate Ellison made a mistake when she was eighteen, one that cost her the best thing she’s ever had. She’s always hoped the regret of losing Cam would fade over time. Too bad it’s only grown. She took comfort in the fact she’d never have to face him again, so his presence in Paradise throws her for a loop.
The pull between them is instant and when the truth of what happened years ago tumbles out, they share a mind-blowing kiss...which leads to more. But the past has a way of repeating itself. When all the cards are on the table, Cam and Tate must decide what they are willing to do to make it last.
Make it Last is the third book in the Bowler University series by Megan Erickson. Each book can be read as a standalone, but I really enjoyed reading them together. This is a great group of friends, and it helps to read their stories in order. Cam was always kind of the quiet pensive one in the group. He was never too rambunctious, he was never a womanizer. And because of that he faded a little into the background of his louder, more in your face friends. To me, that made him all the more mysterious. I was really excited to get to see his story. I love this series so much, so I was sure that Megan Erickson would make me fall in love with Cam. And she completely did with Make it Last.
Make it Last is a second chance love story for Cam and his high school sweetheart, Tate. Tate is new to the series, and her and Cam did not end on good terms at all. Since Cam always kind of seemed like the quiet one in the group, he held a soft spot in my heart. So I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Tate wronging Cam. And I will admit that she started off on my crap list. But she quickly wormed her way into my heart. Her story is powerful and heartbreaking as well. This book had a sadder tone than the first two for me. And back to my initial impression of Cam- he is a sweetie, but he is far from quiet. Back in his home town, Cam really started to open up, and let us see who he really is. Cam just can’t help but want to take care of everyone around him.
Make is Last is a great addition to the Bowler University series. Fans of the first two books will love Cam and Tate’s story. I loved, loved, loved that Cam and Tate started communicating again through their virtual world game, even after they had seen each other in person around town. They created a whole life for the two of them in this world, back when they were dating and they started to use it again, now that they were back in town. It was really cute. Cam and Tate’s story will touch your heart, that’s for sure. This is an all around great series.
