  • Making Up # ARC Review

    A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author 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.


    Review

    I love Helena Hunting's writing so much, but this time the story didn't work for me. The book begins as promised, a romantic comedy, but later becomes a succession of cliché and predictable dramas without much emotion.

    Cozy works in a sex shop and meets Griffin thanks to a bachelor party he needs to go and bring fun toys. The attraction between them is instantaneous and they start a game of seduction that they both know will end soon.

    Griffin has just gotten out of a relationship in the worst way possible but can't resist the joy of Cozy and Cozy decides she will enjoy this casual relationship as best she can.


    The story promised a lot but it became warm and did not make me connect and cheer for the couple, as I could not understand where all of love suddenly came from. Griffin is a billionaire and is in Vegas on business due to be back in New York soon, I waited for more funny moments and the impasse between them would remain in the distance issue, but that's not what happened and the excess of drama completely discouraged me. .

    So sad.
    3/5 stars



    Resenha 

    Eu gosto demais da escrita de Helena Hunting,mas desta vez a história não funcionou muito pra mim. O livro começa como prometido,uma comédia romântica mas depois vira uma sucessão de dramas cliches e previsíveis sem grandes emoções.

    Cosy trabalha numa sexshop e conhece Griffin graças a uma festa  de despedida de solteiro que ele precisa ir e levar  brinquedos divertidos. A atração entre eles é instântanea e eles começam um jogo de sedução que ambos sabem que vai terminar logo.

    Griffin acabou de sair de um relacionamento da pior forma possível mas não consegue resistir a alegria de Cosy e Cosy resolve que  vai curtir este relacionamento casual da melhor forma possível.

    A história prometia bastante mas se tornou morna e não me fez conectar e torcer pelo casal , pois não consegui perceber de onde saiu tanto amor de repente. Griffin é um bilionário e está em Vegas a trabalho devendo voltar para Nova Iorque em pouco tempo, esperei mais momentos engraçados e que o empasse entre eles permanecesse na questão da distância, mas não foi o que aconteceu e o excesso de drama me desanimou por completo.

    Uma pena.
    3/5 estrelas
