Las Vegas, Nevada – Present Day

Cosy Felton has a job at a sex toy store that pays well while she attends college, but it's a bit awkward at times. She's seen everything, including men who come into the store claiming they're there to get items for a bachelor party. That is what Cosy decides is going on when a sexy, handsome man comes in saying he ended up with the embarrassing job of getting stuff for a friend's bachelor party. But Cosy and the man, Griffin Mills, hit it off and he asks her out. At first, she turns him down, but when he shows up again, she finally agrees. One date leads to another, and soon they're having sex. Cosy knows Griffin is in Vegas temporarily for the company he works for, but what she doesn't realize is that he is the son of the man who owns a mega hotel corporation. Yes, Cosy is having an affair with a rich man.

Griffin doesn't let on at first how rich he is because he's used to women seeing dollar signs when they realize how rich his family is. But Cosy seems down to earth and unassuming, plus she is a breath of fresh air after his ex-fiancée broke off their engagement, calling him boring. She is a lot of fun to be with and he enjoys their time together despite their age differences. Cosy is twenty-two and Griffin is an old man at thirty-three. But as things become more than a fling, he's thinking of ways to get her to New York City, where he lives. Cosy is proud and independent, so she just isn't going to accept a handout from him. She is about to graduate from college with a degree in hotel management and will be doing an internship. Can Griffin finagle a job for her at his family's company?

MAKING UP is the fourth book in the Shacking Up series by Helena Hunting but can be read as a standalone because this tale is all about the romance between Griffin and Cosy. There are only brief mentions or scenes with other characters in the series. MAKING UP is a fun, rollicking read right from the start when he walks into the sex toy store, completely embarrassed to be there. Cosy has a sister, Nevah, who is currently staying with her as she broke up with her last meal ticket…er…boyfriend and provides for some comic relief. As much as Cosy and Griffin try to go slow, things are soon running at warp speed due to their intense attraction. The sex is hot between them and they can't get enough of each other. But like any good romance, a roadblock—or two—are thrown in their path. Can they work things out?

Any reader who loves a sexy tale infused with a bit humor shouldn't miss MAKING UP. It's a breezy, entertaining read that's just perfect for some hot summer reading.
