Title: Making Sense
Author: Lila Rose
About Making Sense
I’m thirty-seven, a mother, a divorcee, and I’m ready to date again.
I need a man willing to love me for who I am, despite what size I am. Only finding such a guy is harder than it’s cracked up to be. Afterall, I’m a little clumsy and just a tad outspoken… that is unless I’m in front of a man so good-looking my panties melt. Then I become an absolute weirdo.
Case in point: Vice Salvatore. Stunning. Growly. And also my boss.
Thank God his a**hole attitude put my racing heart at ease and changed my lust to hate.
Nope. I don’t care for him. Won’t. I’ll continue to ignore my ladybits and stay strong.
At least for a while.

Based on Adalyn Sage and Vice Salvatore’s first interaction and his opinion on what he finds ‘lacking’ with Adalyn, I had no idea how Lila Rose would get me to like the broody jackass. Like Adalyn, I was confused by Vice’s hot and cold treatment of her, and how that equated into Vice having feelings for Adalyn since readers’ first impression of Vice wasn’t one that seemed to direct readers to that realization or to the fact that he was likable in the least.
I’m glad that Rose provided readers with insight into Vice’s true feelings and the fact that readers get his perspective at pivotal times helps to not want to throat punch him, but I’ll admit…it took me a bit to get past his initial treatment; I needed Vice to prove himself, and eventually, I grew to appreciate what he did for not only Adalyn but her 9 year old son, Drew, as well.
I adored Adalyn from the start. For a 37 year old divorcee, I love that she feels comfortable in her own skin, and while her ex’s behavior could have broke her in a number of ways, especially his cheating and his comments about her weight, she fights through the pain and focuses on her son and herself, which illustrates just how strong of a woman she is.
Adalyn is a heroine who a lot of readers will relate to, but I do have to say, that some might find her a bit annoying due to the way she reacts like a befuddled girl around good looking men. But to me, Adalyn is adorable in her awkwardness…in her flustered inner monologues…in her moments of muttering and rambling. Adalyn is also a great mom and person who genuinely cares for people and she deserves every happiness in life, and for some reason, even with Vice’s initial mistreatment, he becomes what she wants and Vice takes the steps to prove the man he truly is and what he truly wants with Adalyn.
Making Sense is a funny and sweet story with a bit of steam once Adalyn and Vice get on the same page. Adalyn is a realistic heroine whose humorous idiosyncrasies and the laugh out loud situations she finds herself in makes for entertaining scenes and because there really isn’t any external drama, readers can focus on Adalyn finally finding a man who loves her for who she is, which is what every woman deserves!
