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.










„Show me your weakness, so I can give you my strength.”


Oh my gawwwd! I’m so freaking in love with this book! Helena Hunting created perfectly balanced doses of funny, steamy and angsty moments and tied them with the ribbon! Making Up is another story, that will make you swoon, laugh out loud and blush. And the characters? They’re so magnificent, that you want to crawl inside this book and just exist among them!


Cosy is a young woman with a free spirit. She doesn’t care what the others think about her, she’s open, confident, funny, vibrant and spontaneous. At a young age she’s really smart and she knows exactly how she wants to live her life. And to this moment she didn’t want to be tied down. Until she met insanely hot Griffin, who’s pretty determined to show Cosy that commitment is not a bad thing.


Griffin Mills… where should I start? His complexity totally stole my heart. On the one hand he showed his vulnerability and on the other you could see his possesive streak. His lame pick-up lines made him adorably awkward, but at the same time he was this incredibly sexy mature man in a suit. Griffin is completely irresistible and I’m swooning just from thinking about him!


The level of chemistry between Cosy and Griffin is off the charts! I loved that their sexy times weren’t rushed and that this couple enjoyed fooling around so much. Although they’re complete opposites, they’re perfectly matched. Despite being from two different worlds it just worked for them and it was really amusing to watch how they navigated in certain moments. And although life throw at them some mean curveballs, they managed to get over them and form a great relationship.


Making Up shows us that fate knows best what we need. And it isn’t always what we would reach for in ordinary circumstances. Sometimes you just have to put your faith in the kismet and give yourself a chance at happiness. Cosy and Griffin’s story was one of the very best I’ve read this year and I’m happy that Helena Hunting decided to make me fall in love with another Mills brother. This read was hilarious, swoon-worthy and totally delicious!


P.S. If you haven’t read any book in Shaking Up series, you’re really missing out!

We’re a couple of minutes away from my apartment, which also means we’re almost at the end of our date. End-of-date protocol often means a goodnight kiss.

And I’ve eaten onions. Lots of them. What the hell was I thinking? I feel around in my shorts pocket, hoping I have a random stick of gum. I find a tiny square packet and pull it out, along with an old tissue. I shove that back in my pocket and sigh with relief as I carefully open the Listerine Pocketpak. There’s one strip left. I pop it in my mouth, wishing I had water since my mouth is dry and I’m suddenly super nervous.

Griffin pulls up in front of my apartment building. I swallow a bunch of times, trying to get the strip to dissolve on my tongue and glance out the tinted window, seeing it from his perspective. I don’t live in a bad part of town, but I sure as hell wouldn’t leave this car sitting out here for any length of time unless I wanted it keyed or stripped down.

Griffin shifts into park and turns to me, one hand resting on the back of my seat near the headrest. “I had a great time, Cosy.”

“Me too, thanks for dinner.” I tried to fork over my share, but he was quick on the credit card draw.

“It was my pleasure.” He leans in the tiniest bit, a nonverbal cue that he’s going in for a kiss.

I mirror the movement, giving him the go ahead. My stomach flutters in anticipation. I exhale slowly through my nose. Even though the Listerine strip should be doing its job to mask the onions, I don’t want to ruin the moment by breathing that in his face.

His fingertips skim my jaw, and I close my eyes. And then his lips brush my cheek. I wait for them to move a couple of inches to the right, but after what feels like a lot of seconds—and is probably only a few—I crack a lid.

Griffin is still close, a wry smile on his lips and a smolder in his eyes.

“Seriously, that’s it? A kiss on the cheek?”

His smile widens, making his eyes crinkle at the corners. He’s nothing like the guys I usually end up on dates with. College boys don’t take things slow. If I were out with one of the guys from school, I’d be sitting in a beat-up Civic with some stupid music playing, and he’d be all over me with his tongue halfway down my throat, copping a feel.

“I thought all the onions you ate were the equivalent to garlic for vampires.” Griffin fingers my hair near my shoulder. I’d really like him to finger something else. Wait. I mean I’d like to feel his hands on me. Not in my pants. Okay, maybe I’d like them in my pants, but not after date number one.

“I wasn’t thinking, and I really like onions. A lot. In hindsight, it’s not a great date food. I feel kinda dumb. And I guess at first I wasn’t so sure about you. How was I supposed to know you’d actually be kind of normalish?”


“Well, you drink club soda on purpose, so you can’t be all there.” I tap his temple.

Griffin circles my wrist with his fingers and drops his head, lips brushing over my knuckle. “We can’t all be perfect, now, can we?”

“I suppose not, and perfect is boring.”

“That it is.” He hums against my skin, and I feel it through my entire body. “I would like to try that kiss again, if you’re still interested.”
