A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.
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.

From the awkward and funny first encounter, Making Up is a roller coaster ride of drama, heat & adventure. Cosy the free spirited college student and Griffin the sexy older executive shouldn’t make sense, but together they just fit. Seeing how sweet & attentive Griffin is makes him one of Helena Hunting’s most endearing heroes. Looking forward to reading cousin/best friend Lincoln’s story next.
Funny and all the feels!
4.5 Stars! I great book where opposites attract! Lots of humor, heat, and I loved how these two quirky characters found their way. I love that the setting is in Las Vegas and certain phrases always made me smile and rang true in my own life. I love how there are life lessons in this book too! How many don't do "touristy" things in their own backyard, don't judge someone based upon their age/income, and how opposites can and do attract. Cute and fun, this is a fantastic summer read!
Griffin and Cosy are GOALS
As mentioned in my review of Shacking Up, I knew I wanted to read them, but I wanted to sit down and read uninterrupted. So when the opportunity arose, I sat down and read this one, cover to cover, in 3 hours... then I sat down and read the next one cover to cover in another three hours. 48 hours later, I read all five books in the series so far, this one included (two days after it was released).
I love Helena Hunting's writing style, but this book particularly did it for me because she added a bunch of layers that are not typical in a romance novel. There's romance (duh!) but I've never read a book that incorporated romance in the Grand Canyon, there's betrayal, and love, and broken-hearts, and lots of travel with I love.
Cosy and Griffin go through an emotional ride, but every page of this book is worth it for the amazing ending. Additionally, Hunting brought in supporting characters that I am dying to get to know more about! Hopefully, I will in future books...
