Review: Make You Mine by Macy Beckett

For ninety-nine years, every man in the Dumont family has remained a perpetual bachelor. Residents of Cedar Bayou, Louisiana, whisper about a voodoo hex cast upon the family, sabotaging each man’s chance at marriage. In truth, the Dumont men have their own player personalities to blame, and Marc is no exception. As captain of his family’s riverboat, he’s broken hearts up and down the Mississippi. That is, until his high school crush strolls onboard...  Allie Mauvais rocks the boat when she fills in as pastry chef. She hasn’t seen Marc since senior year, when rumors flew that her great-great-grandmother was the one who cursed the Dumonts. After two weeks on the water, neither can deny the attraction that still burns between them. But to truly reach Marc’s heart, Allie must show him that the hex isn’t real, and it’ll take more than her mouthwatering sweets to prove it. Will Allie’s love be enough to finally make Marc hers?

Make You Mine by Macy Beckett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Make You Mine is the first in a comedic series with the Louisiana Bayou as the backdrop and a family of men who think they were cursed by a voodoo priestess many years ago to never find true love and marry.

First up is Marc Dumont who hasn’t really minded playing the field and using the curse as a reason to never commit. But there has been on woman from his childhood he has never forgotten but as she is a descendant of the woman that supposedly put the curse on his family he has always gone out of his way to avoid her. When his father finally passes the captain hat to him of their riverboat business through a series of weird events the woman that he’s been avoiding ends up filling the position of pastry chef.

Allie Mauvais runs her own pasty shop where she also provides love spells. She doesn’t believe in her families abilities and certainly doesn’t believe in the Dumont curse. When an opening to work with a world renowned chef opens up and its on Marc’s riverboat she is excited for the opportunity.

There are many incidents on the riverboat that provide plenty of humor along with Marc trying to fight his attraction to Allie. Most of the other employees on the boat are Marc’s siblings who are great secondary characters and who look to be the main characters in future books.

This was a light, humorous contempory romance, somthing Macy Beckett writes well.
