Make Me Want Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 Katee Robert
“What the fuck, Lucy?”
“You know exactly what I’m talking about.” He pulled her dress up, though he didn’t need the confirmation. “You come in here with that cock tease of a dress and you aren’t wearing panties.” Jealousy and desire twisted viciously through him. “Were you going to give Aaron a little show?”
“Oh, please. Give me a little credit.” She lifted her chin. “I’m proving a point. You, Gideon Novak, don’t get to make my decisions for me. I appreciate your help, but that’s where it ends.”
She didn’t want him.
He was good enough to fuck but not good enough to listen to.
He kept a white-knuckled grip on his temper because having a knock-down, drag-out fight here and now wasn’t an option for either of them. Not to mention the fact that he didn’t have a right to be pissed. She’d laid out the terms that first day and if he chose to ignore them, that was on him—not on Lucy.
It didn’t make how shitty this situation was any easier to swallow.
Gideon stepped back. “The table. Bend over it.”
Her eyebrows inched up. “You can’t be serious.”
“As a fucking heart attack. I told you what would happen if you showed up like that, and you were all too eager to pick up that gauntlet. Choices have consequences, Lucy. This is one of them.”
She backed toward the table. One step. Two. “The consequences being that you’ll spank my ass red and then fuck me right here.”
She wants it.
It didn’t soothe his temper. If anything, it ratcheted it up a notch. She might want it but she didn’t want him. “The table.”
Lucy turned and, prim as a princess, bent over the table. She seemed to consider and then lowered her chest further until the top half of her body was flush against the polished wood. The position left her ass in the air and had her skirt riding up so he could see how turned on she was by this.
“Which part is getting you?” He stood between her and the door and pushed her dress the last few inches to bare her completely. “The spanking, the defiance, or the fact that we’re in an unlocked room where anyone could walk in—including your fucking date?”
She tilted her ass up, just a little, an offer that made his mouth water. But it was her words that sealed her fate. “All of the above.”
There’s nothing better than friends find love for each other. It just really warms my heart when I read this trope and Katee Robert did a phenomenal job of making this engaging and fun and all around sexy!
For me, the best part of the story was the unique twist of Lucy having Gideon help her in the bedroom … Gideon has always wanted Lucy for himself so here’s his chance to rope her in completely, right?! I was super giddy reading all of this. It warmed my heart completely.
I’ve read quite a few books by this author and she honestly never disappoints. I’ve also now read five books from this new imprint by Harlequin Carina Press, DARE, and I am just highly impressed on all fronts!

Make Me Want caught my attention from the first page and refused to let go. Lucy approaches her ex fiancé’s friend for help securing a promotion she covets. When they are together the tension sizzles between them.
Lucy was my favorite type of heroine. Strong but shy, capable and determined. I loved her from the first moment, along with Gideon. I loved watching him and Lucy fall in love. He was understanding and so sexy. Gideon and Lucy were a fabulous balance for each other.
Overall, Make Me Want was a great read. I read it in one sitting, staying up half the night simply enthralled with the story. It was low on the angst and drama, but still able to hit you in the feels. The characters are fun and developed, I can’t wait for Make Me Crave!
Lucy and Gideon’s history is a bit messy to say the least. They haven’t seen each other in 2 years and now Lucy needs his help with scoring a husband. I could just feel and imagine the struggle it took Gideon to agree to this crazy demand with him being in love with her for so long.
Their chemistry was smoking hot. I really like how patient he was with her and his determination to bring down all of her walls to see him for who he is.

Never have I ever felt those words strike a chord in me like I did this time. I guess it has something to do with being in a similar place a life time ago, but those two little words had seal the deal for me; I loved it – it’s as simple as that!
I can’t wait to see what mess Roman cooks up in the next book 🙂
