Sometimes, a chance meeting is just the push you need in order to break free from the darkness within…
My name is Emma, I’m 23, and I’ve never been kissed. I’m no virgin…But kissing is too intimate, too intense, and I don’t want that – not ever. I like sex, though, and most of my hook-ups don’t seem to mind the no-kissing part.
But then I meet Daniel, who’s such a geek, and definitely not the kind of guy I’d normally take an interest to. He’s the shy, quiet type, but with such a charming smile, and he makes my heart race – something I’ve never experienced before.
Daniel has his own issues to work through, and I know my hardened heart shouldn’t melt when he looks at me. I really shouldn’t be falling for him, either, but somehow, he manages to tear down my walls, and I’m scared…because once he learns my secrets, he’ll want nothing to do with me.
All I know is that Daniel makes me feel things that I have never felt before – but do I dare let down my walls and confide in him?
Will I let him be my first kiss?
This is my story, and I’ll reveal everything in my own sweet time…
Just don’t expect all the hearts-and-flowers stuff.
Life is messy, and mine is no different…
INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS
***Due to possible ‘triggers’ and adult situations (yes, there is lots of sex in this book) it is not recommended to persons under the age of 18.
Over several months, I saw the making of Make Me Believe. With all of the image teasers, quotes, etc, I couldn’t wait to read it.I was definitely not disappointed. Karen Ferry may be a new writer, but she has all the instincts and talent needed to take a book to a level of greatness. Honestly, if I had not known this was her debut novel, I would have never believed it. She put so much emotion into her story. There were times I was crying, laughing, fanning myself lol,..you’ll know what I mean when you get to the park scene. Whatever was happening in the story, Ms Ferry knew exactly how to get your attention by bringing her couple, Emma and Daniel, to life.
I love the spin she put on the book. This was not the traditional alpha male/virgin female book. There is a big twist, but it is so well-written. And the issues that Emma is dealing with…so many people in the world have dealt with them. I admire her for bringing it to life although I can imagine it must have been hard to do so. I have to say that I am a little in love with Daniel. He is one hot dude and I’m claiming him for my BBF! I don’t want to give away the story, but just know that these two characters go through so much to get their HEA. I was cheering them on and would love to know what happens to them in later life. I hope Karen writes a book for Suzy and we hear more about Emma and Daniel. Oh, you will love Suzy…Emma’s best friend. She is a little crazy, but has the biggest heart in the world. She needs an HEA right away 🙂
Karen Ferry is a phenomenal writer! I am so impressed and I cannot wait to read more of her work. I give 5 stars to this story and its author…I wish I could give more…it’s just that good. If you are reading reviews to see if you might like the book, you need to one-click it now. You will probably read it one session, maybe call into work, let the hubby cook dinner type of thing. Once you start the story, it’s almost impossible to put down!

About Karen Ferry
Karen Ferry is a thirty-something writer, wife to a quiet, laidback man, and mother to a gorgeous, stubborn, redheaded girl who keeps her parents on their toes.
Karen tends to have a short fuse if she does not get a proper caffeine fix first thing in the mornings, but she is, in fact, a gentle person deep down.
Karen loves Italian food and wine, travelling, and spending time with her family. When she is not writing, she reads – her favourite genres are New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Erotica and Romantic Suspense. She can never get enough of romance. Or of too many book boyfriends, either.
Even though Karen is Danish, she has always felt more at ease writing stories in English, and she has not read a book in her native tongue in over ten years.
She can be very outspoken and a complete fan girl of other authors online but will, in fact, be very shy once she meets you in person.
