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.

Making Up is book four in the Shacking Up series by Helena Hunting. It’s a contemporary romance sprinkled with rom-com and drama. Cosy works at a Sex Shop and is an absolute hoot. Seriously,the first encounter when she meets Griffin is laugh out loud funny. Griffin is awkward, sweet and hot and they could not be more opposite from one another. Where Griffen is older (thirty to her twenty) and a little more responsible, Cosy is a sparkly, vivacious, zest for life kind of person with a nomadic soul. She’s still in college because she loves to travel and why do it when you’re too old to enjoy it! Griffin is trying to get over a cheating ex-fiancee and Cosy is the first person that makes him feel alive.
While the age gap between puts Cosy off at first, their attraction makes her take a chance on a casual relationship. They’re both wary over starting a long time relationship and ease into it which I freaking LOVED. Griffin takes his time to get to know Cosy and they don’t immediately jump into sex and rush anything. Total swoon for Griffin. I love that their relationship is a slow burn before total fireworks.
I love Helena and her writing but I felt the drama was a little too much at times. Every time I thought that they’d finally be able to be together, another obstacle was thrown at them and I was so badly routing for them and just wanted them to be HEA already. Oh man, super drama. And that ex-fiancee of his is other level witch with a capital B. Super villain status for that chick. But after all is said and done, I was happy with the characters and can’t wait to read more.
