WOW! This is the first review on our new site. Makes me want to tear up just a little bit. We have reviewed quite a few books over the years and lost them ALL. Ugh, it’s been a pain starting over, but here we are!!
Making Up is the 4th book in the Shacking Up series from Helena Hunting. This is a standalone dual POV novel. Here is the synopsis;
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.
This book was so much fun to read. I literally flew through it! Here are a few things I LOVED about this book;
1 – Cosy is not your average female lead. She’s quite a bit younger than Giffin (she’s 22 and he’s 33). She’s still in college and has a little bit of first world experience. Also, she’s a nomad! I love that so much. She doesn’t want to stay tied down to one place for too long.
2 – Griffin isn’t your typical male lead either. He comes from money and drives a super fancy car. Literally he meets Cosy in a sex shop. Which was freaking hilarious BTW!
3 – The chemistry! I could feel it from their very first interaction. Cosy trying to sell sex toys and lube to Griffin, LOL! When he walked back into that shop…SWOON!
4 – They weren’t together 24/7. Even though they were a new couple, they weren’t up each others butts all the time. That gets super old in books. Like they never have a free moment to themselves? Weird…glad that wasn’t the case in this book.
5 – The plot was awesome! There were a few wrenches in there and I loved it! Kept me interested and wanting so much more!
6 – Lots of steamy scenes and swoon-worthy romance. Love, love, loved it!!
7 – This book was set in SIN CITY! There was plenty of SIN! Tehehe! ❤
8 – That ending…it was awesome!
If you love swoon worthy romance, LOL moments, and HEA this is a book for you! Helena Hunting is such an amazing writer. Her books are some of my favorite. I HIGHLY recommend her Pucked series as well as all of the Shaking Up series. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 🙂 – 4 Stars from me!
