Review - Making Up by Helena Hunting

Making Up
by Helena Hunting
Series: Shacking Up
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 16, 2019

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

With an age gap to deal with and an unusual occupation for the heroine, Making Up was a fun, easy read that had humor, heart, and heat and had two great characters that deserved to find their happily ever after.

I liked both Griffin and Cosy and thought they were perfect for each other despite the age difference and where they were in their lives. There was definite chemistry between them right from the start, and once they finally get involved these two had some serious heat between them. I did think there was a bit too much drama between them and really didn’t like the issue that involved Cosy’s sister, but I did think that the characters easily moved past some of the issues without causing an angst overload, so I was still routing for their HEA all the way through.
“You did better than ok. This is perfect.”

“You’re perfect.”

I snort. “Oh my God. You need to drop all the lines today. The surprise and the latte are enough.”

“It’s not a line, Cosy. If I had a checklist with boxes to tick off, you would be the person who appeared at the end of the quiz as my perfect match.”
I haven’t read Helena Hunting before and really liked her writing style and found this book very easy to read. I liked the secondary characters and am curious now to go back and read the other books in this series – Griffin’s family seems quite interesting and I’m sure there are some great stories there!

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the publisher via NetGalley.
