In a small town, it's hard to recover from being dumped by your high school sweetheart. That's just what Briana has to do after Colin leaves her to follow his dreams. She focuses her energy into her friendships and the pursuit of her own goal of becoming a chef. Just when she finally feels like she's on the right path, he comes back to town.
Colin knew breaking up with Briana before leaving for college was the right thing to do. He was determined to leave small-town life behind forever, and that included his high school girlfriend. But when a sports injury puts him on the sidelines, he's forced to return home. Seeing Briana again brings back a lot of memories, and Colin wonders if he made the right decision. It doesn't take long for him to realize he wants her back, and this time, he wants to make it last.

Make it Last is the first novella in the Friends & Lovers Trilogy. You can get all three books in the series, plus a bonus ending for each couple, in the Friends & Lovers omnibus.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 17, 2014 – The appealing, quick-paced final title of Erickson’s Bowler University new adult contemporary trilogy (after Make It Right) ventures off campus to look at life after graduation. The ink is still drying on Cam Ruiz’s diploma when he’s called back to his uninspiring hometown, Paradise, to help care for his mother. Working as a bouncer is no fun, and Cam is torn between staying for his mother’s sake and leaving in the fall for his dream job. Tate Ellison, Cam’s high school flame, has been stuck in Paradise due to her father’s illness. She’s working as a waitress and trying to hold her fracturing family together as she makes her own hard decisions. When the two reunite, everything gets both better and more complicated. With an easy style and likable characters, the story flows quickly, and readers familiar with new adult romances will appreciate Erickson’s willingness to abandon the genre’s clichés.

Make It Last

Nice story.


Not an interesting book. Very boring and predictable. No drama, no plot.
