Willpower is overrated.

Manhattan's most eligible bachelor, Kyle Hunter, is a Marine Corps vet, the son of a US Senator and the prodigal heir of American corporate royalty. He's rich, smart and a notorious flirt. Kyle Hunter is also in love with his best friend. So why did he tell Manny they could never see each other again?

Manny Tescadero isn't about to be hurt twice. He's lost a lot and if there's one thing he learned in Afghanistan, it's to defend yourself and those who need you at all costs. When Rebecca Sinclair lands on his doorstep, his honor won't let him turn her away. His heart won't let him pretend there isn't more to it than a soldier's code. But new love interests aren't part of the mission plan; not when he's still in love with someone else.

Rebecca Sinclair has never been good at letting loose. As a librarian she has her dream job and a new start with an amazing apartment in the city that never sleeps. She thought she was happy until everything she's worked for is gone in a flash. Turns out having it all may just mean something else entirely.

There are a mountain of reasons why they shouldn't be together and not one stands a chance of keeping them apart.

Two hot guys who dig each other, check. One sexy woman who captivates them both, check. Ridiculously hot sexy sex scenes that'll leave you breathless, check.

Rebecca Sinclair is in love with her sublet NYC apartment...until she comes home after a few months out of town to find a shirtless god, the grandson of her now deceased landlord, living in her place. Former Marine Manny Tescadero pushes all of her buttons, and when he offers her somewhere to stay while she searches for a new place to call home, the sparks fly between the two of them. Manny had promised himself a 90-day reprieve from any sort of love life, so his lack of control toward this clearly high-maintenance woman leaves him reeling. He's still messed up from the ending of his relationship, such as it was, with fellow Marine Kyle Hunter.

The son of a New York senator, Kyle was mortified when his commanding officer caught him and Manny going at it on the base. He panicked, but now that he's told his parents that he's gay, he's finally ready to claim his man publicly. So he's pretty damn distraught when he finds out Manny is seeing someone else! Until he meets the stunning Rebecca, and none of their lives will never be the same.

MAKE ME has jumped into the top spot on my MMF menagé favorites list with super sexy time, fabulous chemistry, big bad Marines and killer humor and snarky attitudes. But truly, it's the fact that Manny is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan that had me wishing I could meet this delicious specimen at a game and share a Yuengling and a Primanti Bros. sandwich while we wave our Terrible Towels!!

Sorry, I had a mini Yinsplosion there.

Rebecca was a feminine but strong woman, unfazed and endlessly curious about Manny and Kyle's relationship. Manny was just awesome, even without the aforementioned love of all things black and gold, his calm yet stoic demeanor and willingness to talk about his feelings just made me adore him even more. Kyle pissed me off with his inability to stand up to what his steamroller mother wanted for her campaign, but his heart of gold won me over in the end. Ms. Turner's characters have a depth that is both surprising and heartwarming…I desperately want to be BFF's with every one of them!! And in the bedroom (or living room, or beach, or kitchen), the three of them were wildly insane together, their chemistry beyond potent. I'm absolutely drooling to get my hands on Ms. Turner's next book, Swept.

Bottom Line: If you're a fan of MMF reads, do NOT miss this book. MAKE ME is flawless and a definite addition to my "re-read when randy" pile.
