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.
I just adore a sweet and swoony romance and I can always count on Helena to deliver just that. Making up was the perfect amount of funny, sexy and angsty. A feel good romance trifecta if you will.
Both Griffin and Cosy were charming. I loved their quirky banter and the overwhelming chemistry they had. Cosy is exactly the kind of heroine I like to read about, she’s funny, confident and focused on what she wants. I loved the take on her past romances. She’s not exactly an innocent but she’s not naive about things either.
I know people love the bad boys in romance, I however tend to love the good guys in books. Griffin was such a great character. He was romantic, respectful and he fell hard for Cosy. His past has left his heart a little bruised, but he never stopped trying to show Cosy how much he cared for her, or how important she was to him.
This one gets all of the heart eyes from me. Opposites attract is always such a fun trope to read and with Huntings fabulous spin, it is easily a new favorite.
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!
