Synopsis: 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.

My Review

One really can't go wrong to choose a Helena Hunting novel when they are in the mood for a steamy romantic comedy. Making Up is for anyone who enjoys a sexy billionaire love interest who is just the right amount of domineering without being an asshole while also encouraging the main character to continue to be who she is. Cosy is vibrant main character and a whole lot of fun to get inside her head. This is another romance written in dual narrative from both the male and female point of view. Although Cosy and Griffin's chemistry is spot on, I would have enjoyed a little more banter and dates between the two. I also felt like the supporting characters didn't add a whole lot of anything special to the story. They were forgettable. I also want to note that I rather liked the conflict in this romance since it was a little different than the usual miscommunication that can be frustrating. Overall, Making Up is another solid romance from Helena Hunting. I laughed. I fanned myself. I escaped the real world for a few hours.

Books I Never Reviewed: First Half of 2019

In today's post I want to share the books with you that I read in the first half of the year and just never got around to reviewing for one reason or another. If too much time has passed since I have read a book and I didn't take notes while reading, then there is no way I can write a decent review for the book. My memory isn't the best. Since I still want to share these titles with you, I figured I would throw them all in one post sorted by the star ratings I gave them. There was a lot more than I thought, but I have read 46 books so far this year!

Three Stars 3/5



Three and a Half Stars 3.5/5



Four Stars 4/5




Four and a Half Stars 4.5/5

Five Stars 5/5
