"Steamy, poignant, and addicting...you won't want to put it down!"--Jen McLaughlin, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
Fun, fresh, and romantic, this book kept me enthralled (and swooning hard) while shining a light on important issues often ignored... Nerdy IS the new black, ladies, and Alec Stone is hot! He can tutor me any time."--Rachel Harris, author of SEVEN DAY FIANCE
"I was immediately drawn into Erickson's world, and Kat is a protagonist you end up relating to and rooting for. It's a great love story, but the underlying message is one that sticks with you."--Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"MAKE IT COUNT is a smart, sweet, sexy story that will make you laugh. Kat's adorable, and the slightly nerdy, but very swoon-worthy, Alec is impossible to resist"--Stina Lindenblatt, author of TELL ME WHEN. --This text refers to the mass_market edition.
About the Author
Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5'5" on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.
She's got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators, and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids, and two cats. And no, she still can't reach the stupid top shelf.--This text refers to the mass_market edition.

Erickson’s writing is has a refreshing, lighthearted feel to it for most of the book. It made for an inviting read that kept me wanting to come back to the book more and more. As the story went along, and the characters developed along with the plot, it was hard to put down. I thought the author source of conflict (the main conflict and the minor ones) were great and I’m happy to read a fresh take on what can be a major source of conflict in a college age book.
I really enjoyed the cast of characters, the main characters and the side characters who I feel we’ll see develop even more in the next Bowler University books. What Erickson did with Kat’s character really made the book work for me. She might be one of my favorite characters that I’ve read recently. I also liked Danica a lot and hope she gets a bigger role in the future.
Soon up for me is Make it Right, and I have a feeling I’ll be coming back to Erickson’s books for a long time. Make it Count was definitely a great reading choice for me.

The story is told using third person narrative due to the myriad of tiny but completely relevant plot threads all twining together as the story progresses. The narrative alternates between Kat and Alec allowing insight into their inner thoughts and how easily words can be misinterpreted.
As I have already stated, Kat struggles in school but is determined to make something of herself when she could easily take the easy road by working for her parents. with undiagnosed dyslexia, Kat works extremely hard and views herself as stupid. She plays the part of airhead very well and tends to choose 'meatheads' for boyfriends so they don't look below her beautiful surface. it is a way of protecting herself emotionally. My heart actually hurt for the way in which she views herself. I have a whole new appreciation for students with attention problems. I loved the strategies Kat has in place to help with her assignments and should really make a note of them for myself :)
Kat really doesn't see herself clearly and is defining herself via her struggle with education. She is an amazing, caring, compassionate person. Kat is one of those people who would give you her last penny without thought, she goes above and beyond for her friends.
Alec is adorably rockabilly geeky, intelligent and fit thanks to running. Drawn to Kat on an elemental level yet conflicted due to her relationship with his best friend, Max. The chemistry between Alex and Kat is undeniable. You can see from very early on in the story they are meant to be together.
While the education debate and stigma of learning difficulties is tackled within the narrative. The theme of identity is covered and Megan Erickson does it so well. Looking at the drive to find the one person who sees us for who we truly are and loves that person unconditionally, I would go so far as to say the person who makes you a better person just by being with them. All while forging our own path even if it is found unexpectedly.
There is a lot going on in Make It Count laying the foundation for the series. Make It Count tackles a number of issues while maintaining the chemistry and romance within the plot.
