Emotionally crippled Liz isn't looking for a relationship when she meets delish boy-next-door Cohen. He's several years younger, a volunteer firefighter...and a virgin, making him totally off-limits. But never one to back away from a challenge, she develops a close friendship with Cohen while she continues to satisfy her physical needs elsewhere.
Even as she spends her evenings in another man's arms, she somehow finds herself curled up in Cohen's bed each night. It's been a long time since she's had a true, honest-to-goodness make-out session, but Cohen's showing her just how much fun not having sex can be.
When Cohen is injured in the line of duty, Liz's real feelings for him rise to the surface, and she has to decide if she's willing to take a risk on love after enduring so much heartbreak in the past.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
In Unravel Me, we saw the story of Aiden and Ashlyn. Now it’s time for Ashylyn’s best friend Liz’s story. Make me Yours is Kendall Ryan's second book in her Unravel Me series. We met Liz in Unravel Me (Book 1) as the funny sassy best friend who doesn't take anything too seriously. We didn't really get to know much more about her other than she could be bitchy and protective. In Make me Yours (Book 2), Liz meets Cohen. Cohen was the sexy-hot-guy-upstairs-neighbor. He's a total package. The first time they meet it's not really with a bang. But after an unwelcome bat takes up residence in Liz's apartment and she seeks shelter and assistance upstairs with the hot, virginal firefighter - things start to heat up. They start a friendship that quickly turns into more. There are some HOT AND STEAMY moments between these two. And for Cohen being a virgin - he's certainly not lacking in experience. This book is sexy and leaves your heart pumping. Neither of them can deny the desire and connection they feel. But Liz holds back because of her past and her fear of hurting Cohen. At first I really started to get irritated at Liz for pushing away & avoiding this perfect and patient man. But later on I understood her reasons and realized things had to happen this way for them to find their happiness. We end up learning about the real Eliza (Liz). Her story was very heartbreaking and traumatic and explained why she portrays herself the way she does. These two go through some serious moments that test whether they are really meant to be together. Liz has to mourn her past and deal with her issues before she can truly be worthy of Cohen's love. In the end, the book they both got their well deserved HEA!
Yes, I love the story and the performance is good.
I was moved by Cohen's relationship with his mother and sister. His Mom needs to let go but he is so indulgent.
