Product Description

Product Description

Sometimes life’s unforeseen paths lead us to discovering sides of ourselves we never knew existed.

Ace Bosse has always found solace at home, but when she returns for the summer from college she builds an unexpected relationship with the reckless Max Miller.

Three years ago, Max left for Alaska to find what he thought he’d lost, but now he realizes just how much he left behind.

Max teaches Ace that sometimes a little crazy is exactly what life needs while learning that some chances are worth taking, regardless of the risks.

But how do you know when you’ve met the right person? And will they be prepared to experience one of life’s biggest obstacles?

Falling in love isn’t easy, but holding on to it is where the real challenge lies.

I have to admit I never read any of this author's books, I am floored by the emotional reactions that they bring in me. This a beautiful love story of a young woman in the beginning of her life who finds her life long mate Max. A heart wrenching, profound story of love lost and found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for giving me that piece of you.... Dec 1 2014
By Lisa - A Risque' Affair Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When Mariah reached out to the blog and asked if we could read her book, I first said yes based only on the cover (which I LOVE). Yes, I judged a book by its cover.

I love a healthy dose of angst in a novel... love it! To me, it's all about the build up and all the little things that make you feel the butterflies and hold your breath. All the little touches and words said in moments of pure honesty, when your heart knows what it wants and slowly starts moving towards it. An author who can get your heart racing with just the hint of fingers touching and sideways glances, truly has a gift.

I felt like this novel just flowed. Nothing was forced and it was all built on real emotions. The feelings I got while reading this are just in a class all their own. People try to duplicate in words those feelings and all the intricate nuances that one goes through as they really fall for that one special person. Mariah Dietz not only succeeded, but she hit a grand slam with this one. I couldn't put this down once I started. It gave me 'the feels' in such a crazy way, that I didn't want to lose that by stopping to do things like eat or sleep (lol). You know that feeling of wrapping yourself up in bed, in sheets that are fresh from the dryer? THAT feeling!! That is this book.

I cannot wait for book 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with Ace & Max and the entire Bosse clan! Can't wait for book two!!! Feb. 4 2015
By Michelle New - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ace returns home from college to spend the summer with her family. A family that is a little over the top, crazy and filled with so much love that you can fill it spill off the pages. The youngest of the Bosse sisters, Ace find herself in the middle or a romance that starts off as friendship that she never expected.

Max took off for Alaska for reasons that he never really shared, returning to the home that sits next door to the Bosse family, he finds himself drawn to Ace. The girl he watched for years but never approached. The same one he had no clue had a crush on him for years.

As these two spend the summer growing closer, their friendship slowly morphs into something deeper. But one misunderstanding after another forces one to run more times than stick it out. Both feeling a love so deep, but both so young. The challenge of holding on when loving the right person is the scariest thing in the world might prove to be too much for one girl to face.

This story starts off a little slow, but once it gets going I just couldn’t put it down. I was worried about the number of characters that were tossed into the mix early on. Worried I wouldn’t keep them all straight... worried that too much of the story would be focused on the cast of characters vs. Ace and Max. But these characters became just as much of part of the story. I fell in love with this family.

As the story progresses, it becomes clear that this isn’t just a love story but a journey of one young girl. Ace has a lot to learn about life and love. Max stumbles into her life and turns it upside down in the most delicious way, but at the same time, this brings all of her insecurities and fears to the surface.

As much as I loved every character in this book, there was one downside for me. It took a bit of time away from connecting solely with Ace. This lessened a bit of the impact of parts of the story. And I really tried to give her the full benefit of the doubt, given her age... but there were times when I wanted to shake her a bit. And although those feelings surfaced, I still really liked her. I felt sympathetic to her character even in the moments I wanted to throttle her. Max was easy to love. He wore his heart on his sleeve. No part of him was hard to read. I loved that about him. I loved that we still get a slightly damaged boy, but one that isn’t hiding behind walls.

The second book of this trilogy comes out in just about a month and the first thought I had after finishing book one was that I needed book two. The minor cliff at the end of this and the title of book two has me very scared, but that angst and tension is going to fuel the second part of this series and I can’t wait for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars fall in love with ace and max Dec 2 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book, and it it packed full of the emotions you have as a teenager/young adult. I loved the angst, laughter in the book and family dynamics for Ace and how the return of Max brings up emotions in Ace. Max is everything you ant in your leading man, as is Ace who is strong, vulnerable and relatable to all the readers who should read this book. I will warn you there is a cliff hanger, and i need book 2 asap to find out what happens next. I loved all the family member s Ace has, they and all the supporting characters are really well fleshed out almost like they are real people not fiction. Mariah Dietz has published a fantastic story that i devoured in reading, seriously did not want to go to sleep but unfortunatley needs of the everyday must, but at the next opportunity i got i picked up the book and finished it off, now to me that is the sign of a great book.

Make sure you have nothing planned for today and for the love of all that is holy, put a case on your kindle!

Do you remember being 19? All the emotion, the drama, the uncertainty.... It's an exciting time but it's also packed with huge decisions, learning who you are and where you fit into this world. Becoming His takes you on a journey with the young, beautiful Ace Bosse. Ace has everything a girl needs to be happy - beauty, brains, boys, and a fantastic family. But life is rarely that easy, and author Mariah Dietz shows us just how hard things can be.

The romance in this book is off the charts, make you swoon, wish you had a Max living next door. But, even better are the family dynamics of the Bosse clan. They are supportive, challenging, funny! You want a place at their table! As good as the love story is, the feeling of wholeness and belonging you get from the Bosse family is powerful. The first chapter will take you through a quick who's who in the family, how they are all related and how close to one another they are in the most brilliant and hysterical way! I come from a big family - this is how it works!

This book does end in a cliff hanger in the best 'throw your phone across the room' way. So, yes, make sure the case is on! Don't pass this one up! While the author is new, that is not reflected in the quality of her work. Not only is it a wonderful story with great writing, but the editing and formating are fantastic - her hard work and passion is evident. Becoming His will not disappoint!

By The Review Loft - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow! That was my thought when I was reading. Mariah is a New Author, but you wouldn’t know based on her writing. When I finally finished, it took me DAYS to process all of my emotions. I couldn’t get the characters out of my head.

Ace, 19, is smart and driven, yet slightly indecisive. She is the youngest Bosse girl. She’s cautious, loving but has an unrealistic fear of failure and loss. The Bosses’ are open and honest and know how to have fun. Ace is especially close to her father, he knows how to communicate with her in a way no one else can. Ace’s fear keeps her from truly embracing life. She has watched Max for as long as she can remember. What you see isn’t always what you get.

Something about him has always intrigued me. He always remained slightly distant, looking at everyone with an edge of suspicion.-Ace

I’m officially head over heels for this guy just because he ordered the most perfect ice cream dish ever. –Ace

Max, 22, is a player by necessity and beautiful (as Ace would say), leaving home for Alaska at 18. When he returns home three years later, he runs into, neighbor girl Ace (Harper) Bosse. He doesn’t know what to make of her, she’s captivated him. She’s not like girls he usually associates with. Max struggles with his own issues, even though he hides it well. Will he trust that Ace truly wants to be with him

“Thank you.” -Max

“For what?” I ask. “For giving me that piece of you.” The words wrap around my brain, replaying over and over before I can stop them, and I have to focus to hear him continue. “I want every piece of you.” My heart stops.

“You’re so much more than she is. Everything about you is what I want. Your brilliance, your sense of humor, your heart, the fact that you can’t stay awake through an entire movie... all of it is what makes me love you more every single day. Converse shoes and all, it’s you that I want. It will always be you. I can’t go back, not mow.”-Max

What I love is how strong all the characters are. You’ll find that you are drawn to the supporting characters, just as much as Ace and Max. Mariah will bring back all the feeling of your own youth, the emotions that you experienced with your first love/heart break. Whether it’s angst, love, confusion, self doubt, fear or just being crazy, your heart is going to feel it.

One thing that I would say was confusing, was the beginning of the book when we first meet the family. I have to imagine that’s what it’s like when you first meet a large family. That confusion only lasts a chapter or two, until you learn the family dynamics. That being said, the family dynamics contribute to making this book great.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an amazing love story and strong characters. I have recommended this book to friends and coworkers, really anyone who will listen to me long en
