REVIEW : Making Up by 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.

I have a date I’m excited for. With a woman named Cosy who works at a sex toy shop. Pretty sure I’ve gone insane, but I don’t think I give a fuck.


Helena does it again! Making Up is everything I love about her writing. It is sweet, charming, hilarious, quirky. I mean, who else would be able to start of a story in a sex toy shop?

Cosy is a free-spirited college student who is working in a sex toy shop in Vegas.  Griffin, the oldest of the Mills brothers, is in Vegas for business and pleasure. There was instant attraction between the two of them and weeks after their first meeting, they are both still thinking about each other. Will Cosy be able to let down her guard and give in to Griffin?

I LOVE Cosy. She is awkward, she is gorgeous (both inside and out), she is smart and she is just an overall badass female who does what she wants. Griffin is out of a long term relationship and really isn’t looking for love after getting his heartbroken, but Cosy brings something out in him that brings out something new in him.

This is an age gap romance and I love that the characters casually bring this up throughout the story and can joke about it. Cosy and Griffin’s relationship is a slow burn but so so so so worth the wait! Their chemistry is great, I love that Cosy brings out a youthfulness to Griffin. Their relationship is a rocky road and Helena definitely threw a wrench in it, but whats a story without some drama?

Cosy’s sister, Nev, was a great secondary character and was protective of her sister. Of course, we got a little bit of the other Mills brothers, Bane and Lex, plus their cousin, Lincoln and everyone’s favorite Armstrong.

This is another MUST READ from Helena!
