Made to Love (The Made Series #1) by Candace Nicole Werts

15 Aug


Carmen is a successful business owner who is young and beautiful. Carmen lives in Arlington, VA. She shares an upscale apartment with her best friends, Marcia and Giselle. Her life should be perfect, but every day she faces guilt due to the murder of her younger sister. This tragic event has controlled her love life. Carmen meets Cooper at a summer party hosted by the company he works for A.Werts. With one look Cooper has her mesmerized. How could this handsome successful business man be without a significant other? Her first encounter with Cooper was discouraging until they shared an earth shattering kiss.



I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Made to love is the story of Carmen and Cooper. Two polar opposites but yet so right for each other. Though some of their views and opinions about life and living in general differed, they found a way to understand each other…one steamy and chat filled page at a time.
Made to love was an interesting read. It was edgy, current and hip. I loved that Carmen was a strong, beautiful and independent woman who spoke her mind and didn’t let anyone bring her down. She knew what she wanted and she wasn’t scared to go after it.

The story itself was nice, a female with a tragic experience afraid of getting hurt has her heart melted by a man with an almost equally tragic past. Both are afraid of love and commitment but both are the people who need it the most.

“Maybe I do not deserve happiness, but I need her.”- Cooper.

They are attracted to each other and at first after spending time together and that attraction starts to slowly develop into love, it scares them both so much until it seems like their fears might have them pushing each other away.

What I found inspiring and particularly enjoyable was how the Author treated the subject of race and gave us a story that made us all believe and understand that love doesn’t discriminate. When two people love and care for each other none of the small issues like weight, past and colour matter. They just simply fade out into oblivion…leaving only love and mutual respect and understanding.
There are not a lot of books that feature interracial couples and so I was really happy reading this.

As this is erotica I must mention the sex scenes. I usually cringe when I read most erotic novels. So much sex and not enough story or character. But luckily for me that was not the case with this novel.
Made to Love was a page turner because I didn’t have to suffer through page after page of sex and BJs. The scenes were hot but it was good because that was not what the book was all about. Candace Werts didn’t depict the characters as sex starved nymphos who only eat, breath and drink sex. The characters had…well character :D. The Author gave us a story and conversation between two people who shared their experiences with one another and as the story did not happen over a week or a month, it was believable as a love story.
(I can’t stand those books were people meet, bang like rabbits and get married by the end book…after like 9 days of meeting. What the hell right?)

There were some things though that if they were absent I would have given the book a higher rating. Things that got me cursing and irritated at times.
I found that at some points the main character, Carmen, gave descriptions of events with a little too much detail. This included situations where she talked about perfume names, Car models/make, makeup and food like she was strategically doing product placement. I got the same feeling with how she talked about the songs playing in the background.

To sum it all up, Made to Love is a must read for people who believe in second chance and that “love is colour blind”.
