Full disclosure, I almost didn’t read this book. Almost. For as much as I absolutely loved the rest of the series, the last book fell flat so I was hesitant, but it was worth every minute. If nothing else, Griffin and Imogen were a constant so seeing the name Cosy was a surprise and I had to know more. I’m so glad curiosity won out because these two were adorable.
Griffin was with his ex for a long time but it ended badly, so he’s pretty scarred. He’s out of his element as a single guy and doesn’t really know how to act. Now he wants to ask out a store clerk, who just happens to work at the sex toy shop where he drops a ton of cash for a bachelor party. Cosy assumes the bachelor party is just a line and Griffin is a huge freak, so she’s not exactly jumping at the invitation, plus she doesn’t date customers, but he eventually wins her over.
There are complications because of his job and Griffin is really self-conscious of the age gap but they work through all that because they’re perfect together. Things are fantastic . . . until they’re not. It’s like the world is conspiring against them with one drama after another. First her sister interferes, then his ex resurfaces and everything blows up. All this drama should be way over the top but it’s not because I really liked Cosy and Griffin, so I was invested in this relationship. This was a sweet story and I enjoyed it very much.

Shacking Up series book 4
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.
