Publisher's Summary

You wouldn't believe Dex Riggs and I are from the same town. He's the ultimate bad boy; I'm the one who goes by the book. He's a sexy former cop with a shady past; I'm the girl who married her high school sweetheart.

But now, my marriage is over, I'm burned out on my business, and worst of all, I never got the baby I wanted. And now, I never will.

Unless Dex is willing to make a deal.

I get a baby; he gets...me. For a little while. Once I'm knocked up, we'll go our separate ways. That's the rule.

I've never broken a rule. Dex has broken all of them.

Which rule will we break first?

Simply Awesome

Finally we get to Dex's story and it was even better as an audiobook than an ebook. As a former cop and the most misunderstood of the Riggs brothers, Dex needs to come to terms with his past before he can get on with his future. Lauren who is newly divorced has decided to take matters in her own hands and use a sperm bank to finally have the baby she wants. But a dead car battery puts them both on a path neither one of them ever imagined and not the memories of their first kiss when she was 16 means so much more. Can Dex finally get a HEA and not be considered the loser anymore? Can Lauren's dreams come true? I honestly can say I had to listen to this story all in one sitting. There was not a spot of the storyline that I could stop to put down and just when you think you know what is going to happen the roller coaster begins and you just hold on until it is over. The epilogue was the icing on the cake. I am so sorry to see the Riggs series complete. I will miss these boys.

Steamy!

Make Me Beg is the last book in the Riggs Brother series. It’s the story of Lauren and the eldest brother Riggs brother Dex, who happens to be her first kiss. She’s always had a soft spot for him, but everyone else saw him as a dirty cop. After she gets divorced and he raises some eyebrows by moving back to town, they grow closer and end up agreeing to have a baby together.

This story has a lot of steam! Lauren and Dex have great chemistry and they balance each other out. I haven’t read or listened to any of the other books in this series (or by this author, for that matter) but I enjoyed listening to Dex and Lauren’s story so much that I’m now thinking about getting the rest of the books in this series. This book really can be read as a standalone—I didn’t feel like there were some parts of the story missing.

Narrators Joe Arden and Erin Mallon did not disappoint. They did an excellent job bringing the story of Dax and Lauren to life.

Make Me Beg is a contemporary romance written in dual first-person POV and done in dual narration. It’s a standalone that ends with a HEA. No cliffhanger, no cheating.

I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Bad boy that's good

I have been patiently waiting on this one to hit audible. I love this entire series and I couldn't wait to see what made Dex Riggs tick. Turns out his past is a bit of a surprise and maybe the "bad boy" isn't so bad after all.

Lauren has been through a failed marriage, she wants children but unable to have them but maybe Dex Riggs can give her what she needs. This cop turned bad boy has so many layers and she can see through his tough guy act and plans to get to the bottom of what's really going on.

Dex can't sleep, he has guilt he can't deal with so he smokes weed and drinks to just get from one day to the next. When Lauren shows up he wants to be better even though he knows he isn't who she needs.

This series is so good and this is book 4 and ties all the brothers and their women together. Dex's story is touching and I liked him in the other books but I really fell for him here. This big bad boy has a heart after all and he is giving it to Lauren.

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon were perfect as Dex and Lauren. Loved listening to them from beginning to end. Hot, sexy voices.

This is book 4 in the series but they can all be listened to or read as stand alones. You get enough of the back stories there are no cliffhangers with any. I loved it and highly recommend it.

Satisfying end to the Riggs Brothers books!

Rebecca did an amazing job setting up Dex’s story. So much that even though this particular plot is a one that I would normally steer clear of, I was excited to dive in to MAKE ME BEG as soon as possible. I listened to the whole book in a day and it felt a little sad to say goodbye to these characters so quickly. The narration was good, but I always enjoy both Joe Arden and Erin Mallon. 

If you've been following the rest of the books in the Riggs Brothers series, I think you will feel satisfied with how their stories end. As I expected Dex's book was a lot sexier than the rest of them (in my opinion), so if you're in the mood for a lot of steam, this is the book for you. I was particularly pleased that Julie Kriss did not add unnecessary drama just for the sake of it. Along with an all around fun story there was also suspense and the author finally reveals why Dex left the police force. It was in no way what I thought! Which was awesome. This series was my first books by this author and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Great ending!

4.5 stars
Finally, we get DEX! We've seen little snippets of Dex and Lauren in previous books and knew that there was some kind of history there. They are definitely my favorite of the couples. My only complaint is that I wish this one had been little longer. Otherwise, I loved it! I'm said that this series is over. Great epilogue and great narration.

My Thoughts on Make Me Beg

The final book in the Riggs Brothers’ series was even better than I could have imagined. Dex was so much kinder and more supportive and just more amazing then I could have imagined. And I loved the fact that he didn’t suddenly develop feelings for Lauren out of no where. This was essentially a second chance romance in my opinion. Even if their first chance was very small and really nothing more than a moment. It was a missed moment and when this story kicks off they’re getting a second go. It may have started off as one thing, but it was also obvious that it was a bit more than either character wanted to admit to. And then when learning Dex’s secret, it kind of made me love him even more. Because it was just another example of how he was a better guy then he’d ever been given credit for. And I loved that Lauren pretty much saw the good in him all along. She was perfect for him and I was so happy for their HEA.
Two of my favorite narrators brought this story to life. I could listen to Erin Mallon and Joe Arden narrate just about anything with little to no hesitation, but this story was an absolute joy to listen to in part due to their amazing performance.
I will happily be looking forward to more books by this author and these narrators in future.

Just okay

I’ve enjoyed several of Julie Kriss’s books. However, I fell for the reviews that said this book was hot and steamy. Maybe if someone is used to G rated movies this book is hot. But it’s really not. It’s got a great story and characters, but it’s all very surface level. Nothing deep and the hotness level is 1/5. I won’t listen to the other books in the series because I like a little more heat.

This was a good series ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐!!!!

I will miss these bad boy Riggs brothers. ❤❤❤❤
Great stories, lots of hotness and the narrators were so good. Sorry to see the saga end but loved all the HEA's. Lots of realness to the writing. No billionaires...just regular guys and regular lives. I love Jason Clarke and Joe Arden. And Erin honey, you know how to do your thing too. I'm feeling like I might listen to this series again sometime in the future. If you haven't listened you should and start with the first book to appreciate each and every brother and couple. Enjoy!!!!! And thank you Ms. Kriss for keeping it real...👏👏👏

Worth the wait!

I have been looking forward to Dex’s story since I started listening to this series!! Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed my time with each of these Riggs brothers. Not one of them could disappoint me.

BUUTTTT… I really couldn’t wait for my time with Dex. :) I just knew somehow that Dex was going to be my favorite and the best would be saved for least.

I was not wrong, Dex was worth the wait!

However, I will say that I felt like this story was a little more rushed then the previous books and I didn’t get my full fill of Dex. That being said, I still loved <i>Make Me Beg</i>. Lauren and Dex both broke my heart and then put it all back together.

The narrators are fantastic and did an amazing job!

What a wild ride?

What a wild ride?

I read this book in conjunction to the audio book and it was delightful. The narrator's captured the essence of the character so perfectly and kept me very intrigued to keep on reading on.

Emily was a tough characters. Someone that at first might be difficult to like as a result of how she behaves. However when you see through her shield you see what she's really like. She's vulnerable just like everyone else.

Luke Riggs, is another tough characters, it's that reason why him and Emily get along so well. They both don't really fit into the shells people have put them into and so by being together they can be themselves and not worry about what anyone else is going to think.

He grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, literally. Him and his brothers have been given a bad reputation before even allowing others the chance to know them. However Emily doesn't care about that. Sure it makes things more scandalous but it's the connection she only cared about.

Luke is back in town after eight years to run his dad's auto shop. Emily is back to run her sisters hairdressers. After eight years of not seeing one another they're back together and what was left as unfinished business when they were 18 is now opened back up.

It a good story line with a but of suspense, intensity, and suspicious activity. However it balances perfectly with the sweet and sexy moments.

A must read or listen.

The Bad Boy

Audiobook review. Dex was the Riggs brother I most wanted to get to know because he was the ultimate bad boy. I wanted to delve deeper into who he really was underneath all those layers. Ms. Kriss didn’t disappoint. Dex maintained his sexy aura and appeal but we got to see the protective and caring side of him too. He even had the opportunity to show some vulnerability. Lauren’s life was turned upside down and what she wanted most seemed out of her reach. Dex re-entered her life at just the right time.

The plot was interesting and in some ways unexpected. It was emotional and the characterization supported growth and development. I’m glad I got to know these brothers and the ladies that tamed them.

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon did a fantastic job with the narration. They fit the characters well and their performance exceeded expectations.

Complementary copy received and voluntarily reviewed.

Dex and Lauren!

Lauren has a lot of regrets about her failed marriage but the biggest regret is that they didn’t have children. Dex is the Riggs brother who is returned to his hometown and isn’t sharing details about the end of his career as a police officer.

They reunite at Luke and Emily’s wedding and neither have forgotten the kiss they shared in high school. She wants a baby and he wants her so it sounds like the perfect arrangement until his past becomes his present.

They are both damaged by their pasts in their own way but I liked how Lauren saw Dex for the man he truly was not what he presents to other. Although I am sad to see the series end it was great to catch up with all the Riggs brothers. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and the narrators were the perfect choice to bring this story to life.

A captivating and unexpected romance!

Dex and Lauren were PERFECT!!!!!! Their whirlwind romance was so addicting and chaotic. I was so happy to see them make things work and get beyond their dramatic pasts. The story line was suspenseful enough to keep me interested but still very romantic and sexy. The intimate scenes were so darn hot! This might have been my favorite couple from the Riggs Brothers series! I loved Dex's mysterious nature and take no lip attitude from the previous books in the series and truly enjoyed seeing the layers of his character be peeled back little by little when he least suspected it!

The epilogue was so sweet! I loved getting more of each of the Riggs brothers and their women. ❤️

I received a complimentary audiobook from Wildfire Marketing Solutions in exchange for an honest review.

Loved it

This series just kept getting better and better. Make Me Beg was Dex and Lauren's story and is the final book in the Riggs brother series. The story was steamy, sweet and a little emotional and I wished it was longer as the story finished a little to quickly for me. I loved that we get the appearances of the other couples from the previous books as they all brought a certain levity to the story. The chemistry between Dex and Lauren was intense and I liked that the story delved into solving Dex's failed career as a cop. Best of all I loved that the author gave us that epilogue which encompassed all four brothers. This novel was a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of second chance romance.
I listened to the audiobook version of this novel which was narrated by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon. These two have become favorites of mine and I enjoyed their performance with these characters. Their pace and timing was excellent and they brought life to the characters. it was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

Finally Dex!!!

Make Me Beg is the story I have been waiting for! I love all the Riggs brothers, but there has been something about Dex that catches me in each book. It could be the bad boy image he portrays, but I think it is that I want to know why he is the way he is, and finally we get his story! We get Lauren, Luke's sister-in-law and Dex together. These two have some history, but it never amounted to anything. Now years later, the two are together, their attraction palpable, and Dex is willing to give her the one thing she has always wanted! What a story this is. It's full of emotion and action, gives us lots of passion and we even get some suspense and action! Kriss never lets us down, she always has it all in her books! And the epilogue wraps it all up, with a quick look at the whole family. It's a great ending to this series!

Joe Arden and Erin Mallon finish their narration with Dex and Lauren. I love this duo, so talented, finding the intricacies of each character and making them different with a new voice and inflections. It's a pleasure to hear them, and I love that they have performed the entire series, giving us continuity of the characters. It's a must listen series!
