Alex has loved his step-sister ever since she was seventeen. Back then, he thought that she was too young for a relationship and chose to be her friend instead. However, having been attacked by an obsessive stalker, Elynn, his step sister, has issues with intimacy and relationships. To add to that, there is a ten year age difference between them, and their parents are against the relationship.
Will Elynn be able to overcome her fears? Will she feel the same way about Alex? If she does, will their parents accept the relationship? There are a lot of obstacles in Alex’s way. However, Alex wants Elynn and he will do anything to have her.
Making Her His by Lucy Leroux is a story of Love, acceptance, faith and courage. When I first read the synopsis, I thought that this would be another typical romance book, with a powerful man and a woman who needs protection. To a certain extent, this was true. However, as the story progresses, Elynn becomes emotionally and physically stronger. While she needed protection towards the beginning of the book, she could protect herself by the end of it. Further, while Alex was a dominating and stubborn man in the beginning, he learnt to respect others’ wishes and choices by the end. The character development in the book was amazing and was a truly refreshing change.
Unlike most romance books that I have read, this book has no cheating or break-up, and has very little drama. It is a sweet story of how their relationship forms and progresses, and how they deal with the obstacles that come their way.
When I read a romance book, I prefer a strong female protagonist and this book certainly did not disappoint. While Elynn had issues, she took steps to resolve them. When she had problems with Alex, she spoke to him and made her point. She was sensible, funny and sensitive. In particular, I liked how she viewed and described therapy (psychological) as an acceptable and practical part of her routine. Her character was what I liked best about the book.
On the other hand, I could not connect with Alex. While I liked how he was extremely loyal and tried to understand Elynn’s perspective, he seemed spoilt and at times, a little childish. However, this did not spoil my overall reading experience.
In terms of language, the book was easy to read and understand. I liked the pace of the plot and the author’s writing style. While I came across a few minor grammatical errors, these did not interrupt my flow of reading.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is a sweet story that I wanted to finish reading in one sitting. Further, I loved the female protagonist’s personality. The book has lots of mature content. I would recommend this book to an adult who is looking for a sweet romance story, with no cheating and little drama.

Haha we're similar. I like couples who stay together throughout too. I hope you like the book! Thank You for the comment!
