Release Date: July 16, 2019

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 encountered 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.

4 out of 5 stars

Talk about an entertaining read that had me laughing! Throw in some angst and a lot of emotion and this made for a truly great story.

I loved Cosy and Griffin first meeting, it was awkward and adorable all rolled into one. It was so fun and flirty! Cosy was a fly by the seat of her pants kind of girl and Griffin was a bit buttoned up so it was thrilling having those personalities mesh together and watching their sparks fly. There was this nice build happening as feelings emerged and I really liked the timeline in which it took place.

It was definitely entertaining but there was also a lot of drama and angst that had me pretty stressed out a time or two. There is an age difference between Cosy and Griffin and because of where they are at in their stages in life, I think that’s what made it feel angsty for me. I loved how open Cosy was when it came to accepting things and forgiveness, she might have had moments of immaturity but she had a solid head on her shoulders.

Even though it stressed me out at times, I love the emotions it brought out in me. I felt it was a solid story from beginning to end, a pretty easy read, crazy drama yes but not to taxing. It was an exciting, light read with a whole lot of fun and just the right amount of sexy.

I picked this up and couldn’t put it back down. Another awesome story in the Shaking Up world!
