Royal St. James got her name when she was born. Not because her mother loved her royally, but because Royal was a giant pain in the ass. She’s spent her entire life fighting to live, and the last thing she needs is to deal with some pretty-boy police officer who wouldn’t know a hardship if it came up and bit him in the…you know.
Justice Rector wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised to work hard and always fight for what he believed in. His father was a cop, and ever since he could remember, he wanted to be one, too.
It was a complete coincidence that he ends up going undercover and meeting Royal St. James. It was just one day, a single moment in time. All routine.
Just do the buy, make the bust, and get out.
But Royal St. James, aptly named, screws everything up. Royally.
All of a sudden, he has a decision to make: blow his cover and save the girl, or save himself.
Of course, he does the most stupid thing possible.
By saving the girl who most assuredly did not want to be saved.
Make Me shows the reader a different side to Kilgore, TX. Its 11th street where things are illegal and dangerous-drugs, prostitution, and all sorts of other seedy activities. It also happens to be where Royal and her wheelchair bound brother work. Their family disfunction makes everyone else’s family look like the Cleavers! Her father is a huge douche, her “step mother” is a lazy, heartless wench, and somehow her and her brother turned out okay!
Justice meets Royal when he is undercover trying to take down a kingpin on 11th. She is a royal pain in his butt and she is gonna get herself killed. I thought Royal was a great heroine-she is flawed enough to be real, and her emotions and actions are believable. I adored her and Justice together! The story is multi faceted and focuses on their relationship, the danger from Marcus, their families, and their town. It all blends seamlessly into a delightful story.
Make Me will charm fans of Vale’s work and will woo new readers into becoming fans! Justice and Royal will steal your heart with their story!
