MAKE IT COUNT by Megan Erickson #NewBookRelease

If you haven't already heard, tomorrow is book release day for MAKE IT COUNT, book 1 in the Bowler University Series by the sweet, funny, and oh so talented Megan Erickson. She is, of course, one of my brilliant clients at the Corvisiero Literary Agency

We are all super excited about this book released by William Morrow Impulse, Harper Collins, and edited by the equally brilliant Amanda Bergeron. It is everything a New Adult novel should be. Throw in a great plot, humor, clever unique voice, well developed characters, and a super hot nerd, and you've got a #MustReadBook

I love the sexy male MC, Alec, who I guarantee will be trending as #NerdIsTheNewBlack... The female MC, Kat, is a beautiful young woman who has a learning disability that has gone undiagnosed until she is close to flunking out of college. For many personal reasons I really connected with Kat, and Megan's voice. I love everything about this book, and yes, the HEA. I know you will too. 

Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend's gorgeous best friend, Alec...who just so happens to be her brand new college math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?

Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends--both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It's safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm's reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She's adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He'd never stab his best friend in the back...But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can't be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust Alec may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it.

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.
