 After losing her job, her home, and her friends in her divorce, Nora Pitts is determined not to make the same mistakes when she starts over in the small town of Shadow Creek, Washington. No more toiling away in the lab at the expense of her social life, and definitely no more men. Ever.  But making friends in her thirties is so much harder than she anticipated. And when it comes to her gorgeous yet obnoxious neighbor, it’s a whole lot easier to make enemies.

Eli Hardin doesn’t have a lot of sympathy for his uptight neighbor, until he overhears her so-called new friends making fun of her un-datable status. Suddenly he finds himself volunteering for a date with a woman who’s been leaving angry hate-notes in his mailbox, and in way over his head. Because all it takes is one disastrous date with Nora for Eli to fall hard.

But falling for Eli isn’t something Nora’s ready for—not when he’s her complete opposite, and especially not when he turns out to be the best friend she’s made in Shadow Creek. But as her attraction and her feelings for Eli grow hotter, resisting him might just lead to heartbreak anyway.

My Review

Ok, let me tell you two important things about this book: it’s funny and it’s amazing. A summary of this review: 5 stars. Now you have more time to go and buy it, but feel free to spend another 5 minutes going through my reasons.

As I mentioned, this was such a beautiful story! Every page made me laugh, one more than the other. I loved the main characters and I must admit I find myself in Nora a little, as I am weird in my own way. It all starts with Eli trying to teach Nora’s so called friends and book club partners a lesson by going out with her. Little did they expect to feel comfortable with each other. Now, because they both have their own… quirks, this relationship may seem not ok. But chemistry plays an important role. I mean, real chemistry and the other kind as well.

Eli is a gentleman. He is kind, he is strong and smart and so funny! He has his own things to deal with, no room for romance at all. Even if his mind is anywhere but into a relationship, he finds himself very attracted to his neighbor. Nora is determined to turn her career around and her life as well. Forced to start over in a new town, she wants to be accepted and to feel like home again. Correction: she wants to be accepted by anyone but her loud neighbor, with ugly taste in music and no respect for the quiet hours. But together, they are so great! I cannot even stop saying that!

The writing was beyond any expectation. It was delicious, if I can characterize it like that. I enjoyed every page and this kept me reading along nonstop. I have so many quotes marked and so many paragraphs that made me laugh.

All in all, it has been a real pleasure reading “Make Me Fall”. I loved it so so much and I am so happy I have another favorite author! I cannot wait to read more of her books! Please try it and you will not be disappointed!
