Making Up by Helena Hunting - ARC Review

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.

This was a fun, sexy read. It's light and quick, but not lacking in depth and romance. I cared about the characters, I felt for them, and I wanted them to be happy.

Griffin and Cosy meet, where else? In a sex shop. And, it's instant attraction, even if Griffin has no game. (Trust me on this.)

But, there's some depth to it. Some struggle. A couple of people who are figuring out who they are, and what they want, while trying to make a new relationship work.

Age gap romance can be a lot of fun when the attraction is allowed to be the most important part of the story. And, in this case, while them being in different places in their lives did cause some issues, mostly it was just who they each were. I liked that. When you like a person, age is just a number.

I thought the end, and the resolution of making his job and hers work together, was a little too easy, overall I enjoyed and recommend this title.
