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.

You know a book is going to be hilarious when it open in a sex toy shop and Making Up definitely did not disappoint!!
Griffin and Cosy's story was so funny!! Age gap isn't usually my jam but I thought this book was everything!!! The connection between these two was pretty instant considering their weird first meeting: her working at a sex toy shop, him buying a bunch of weird stuff for a bachelor party. I snort laughed my way through this entire book but there was definitely some angst that balanced this story perfectly.
Even though Making Up is the 4th book in the Shacking Up series, I definitely think it can be read as a standalone but you need Bane, Lex, and Pierce in your life. If you've read the first three books in this series then you know that Armstrong is the actual worst. Making Up made me hate him even more and wish that he would just fall off the face of the Earth. He has to get his comeuppance sooner or late but I'd really like it to be sooner. Fingers crossed it happens in Handle with Care!!!
Cosy and Griffin are Love
Helena Hunting never disappoints with her amazing stories and characters. Cosy and Griffin are no exception, Cosy is quirky and unapologetic about who she is. She’s completely confident in her own skin. Griffin is sexy and sweet and a little bit awkward. He sticks his foot in his mouth a lot but you have to forgive him! Their meet Cute in chapter one is adorable and lets you know from the beginning, you’re going to love this couple. Helena gave us a couple of angst causing twists but it’s alk delivered with her signature humor. I’ve loved all of the Shacking Up books but Cosy and Griffin have now moved to the top of my favorite list. Don’t miss it, I promise you’ll love it!
A Blissful Read
Griffin and Cosy are an amazing pair. Their story begins in an adult toy store when he’s in charge of gag gifts for a bachelor party and she’s the sales associate who helps him. He’s definitely out of his element and terribly embarrassed while she’s highly amused and gleeful at the commission she’s going to make on this sale. Cue instant attraction. This is a very romantic and sometimes angsty courtship with a swoon worthy hunk and a spirited beauty, and one that you’ll want to read again and again.
