REVIEW ➞ Make Me Yours by Melanie Harlow


He’s my brother’s best friend.

The hot single dad next door.

And one accidental sext later, my massive crush on him is no longer a secret.

It’s my own damn fault. I’m thirty years old, for heaven’s sake. I’m a kindergarten teacher and a (reasonably) responsible adult. I should know better than to get tipsy and draft a fake text listing all the dirty things I wish Officer Cole Mitchell would do to me.

I wasn’t supposed to hit send.

He wasn’t supposed to see it.

And he definitely wasn’t supposed to text back telling me to go on . . .

Because after that, things escalate quickly.

Cole is everything I’ve ever wanted. He’s sexy and protective. A devoted father to his little girl. A dedicated cop the whole town adores. The kind of guy you can trust to keep his hands to himself, even when you’re desperately hoping he won’t.

I’m not the girl he thought he’d end up with, but after all this time, I might finally get the chance to say the words I’ve always dreamed of . . . make me yours.

You’re only human, Officer Mitchell. You might look like a superhero-especially in uniform-but underneath it all, you’re a mere mortal like the rest of us.


Cheyenne has been in love her brother’s best friend and her neighbor since she was a young girl and now that she is thirty that love hasn’t fizzled, even though she knows that the feelings will never be returned. Cole is a single father, a widow, and he does everything for his daughter. However, recently he has noticed his best friends little sister and his next door neighbor more and more.

There is some obvious chemistry between Cheyenne and Cole. I get that Cole has fears, especially with his daughter. But with the kind of tension and chemistry brewing it can only be ignored for so long. I loved their friendship and the relationship and the growth of both these characters throughout the story, especially Cole’s.

Make Me Yours had some sweet moments, some steamy moments and few moments that made me laugh. It was great to get some more of Blair and Griff from the first book, plus more of the rest of the crew in Bellamy Creek. Melanie Harlow is my go to when it comes to small town romances and this is another great addition! A MUST READ and I’m hoping that Enzo’s story is up next!!!
