Synopsis from Goodreads
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 a comedy of errors, from the way in which Cosy and Griffin meet to the continuous outlandish drama-llama they encounter at every turn.
Cosy and Griffin appear to be completely different, from the 10 year age gap to their economic status; the scales are definitely set against them. However, their chemistry cannot be denied and as they get to know each other it is obvious how similar they are in their professional capacity and their innate wanderlust.
Personally, I felt as if Helena was pouring on the problems Cost and Griffin faced to an extreme level making it almost tongue-in-cheek. I know life isn’t necessarily easy BUT Cosy and Griffin pack their problems together into a short timeframe – BAM BAM BAM – you can’t help but wonder if fate is trying to tell them something.
Just when you think you have it all figured out, Helena throws a curveball adding an ingenious twist to the tale.
With everything they have had thrown at them, Cosy and Griffin are a rare couple where their shared problems bring them closer and contribute to their emotional growth. A happily ever after for Cosy and Griffin is certainly a tough battle although it does give them a very strong foundation on which to build their future.
