I’m impressed by the author’s latest few releases. Ever since Meet Cute her books have just worked for me. I was lucky enough to read Making Up and Handle with Care back to back, and all I can say is – well done!!

So far Meet Cute, Making Up and Handle with Care are my most favorite books in this series. I truly feel like the author has grown immensely since her Pucked series.

Making Up is an adorable, sexy and sweet romance.

I really enjoyed the story but most of all, I loved Cosy and Griffin. And their meet cute is one for the books.

Cosy is this refreshingly candid personality. Young in age, vibrant, and exuberant, she is exactly what Griffin needs. Someone that isn’t cynical and jaded yet, and still believes in HEA without analyzing everything to death. Furthermore she reminds me a bit of Violet and Sunny, nothing too closely resembling, just a vibe that I got from her. Hence her openness, not giving a hoot what people think, and her all in all uncomplicated and confident personality makes her my kind of heroine.

Cosy and Griffin have so many fantastic scenes together. Scenes that still play out in my mind, days after I finished the book. Unsurprisingly the book is sexy, sweet, funny. With lots of signature banter, an entertaining story and a couple that just clicked – it worked on more than one level for me.

Griffin is a hero I won’t forget anytime soon. His personality is an interesting mix of  possessiveness and vulnerability. I really enjoyed both sides of him. It makes for a well balanced personality, not many heroes can pull that off. Additionally, Griffin really deserves his HEA.

And of course Cosy and Griffin have chemistry to boot – the attraction sizzles throughout the book!!! But most of all I loved how they adored to make out. It’s seldom that a couple in romance novels takes the time to make out, they usually go right away to SEX. But Cosy and Griffin really knew how to enjoy themselves without immediately jumping into bed. I adored that.

The only complaint I have, is that on two separate occasions, the book almost slipped into predictability by using two overly used plot arcs. Fortunately the author averted the looming cliche by skillfully putting her own stamp on it. But in all honesty, it would have been a higher rating for me without these instances.

This book is an easy recommendation for anyone that loves lighthearted, sweet, sexy and sassy.

MAKING UP - Helena Hunting - Cover Reveal

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.



NTY and USA Today Bestselling author of The PUCKED Series, Helena Hunting lives outside of Toronto with her amazing family and her two awesome cats, who think the best place to sleep is her keyboard. Helena writes everything from contemporary romance to romance comedy, sports romance and angsty new adult romance.
