What do mascara wands and gardening shears have in common?

Absolutely nothing! At least that’s what wannabe beauty influencer Sophie Timney thinks when her friend Polly suggests involving her brother Marcus in Sophie’s make-up tutorials. She needs more views, Marcus needs promotion for his gardening business – in Polly’s mind joining forces will help them both. Sophie isn’t so sure.

Because Marcus Bowman has a habit of getting under her skin in a way that no exfoliating face scrub ever could. But, as the views and comments on her videos begin creeping up, it becomes increasingly obvious that Sophie’s subscribers like Marcus, and what’s even worse is that Sophie might be starting to feel the same way.

In the mood for a Romantic Comedy that will not only tickle your funny bone but give you all the romantic swoons that you could ever ask for?  Then look no further than Lucy Keeling’s new release, MAKE IT UP TO YOU.

Marcus and Sophie may have far different reasons for pairing up to work on Sophie’s make-up tutorials but they (and Sophie’s viewers) certainly are enjoying the connections that it’s obvious they make together.  Now getting Sophie and Marcus together in a romantic sense might take a bit more but it’s not out of the realm of possibility that they might just be perfect for each other offline as well.  Marcus definitely has the interest and the intent to bring Sophie further into his love life – now Sophie needs to take a few risks beyond what eye shadow color to use today.

I laughed until I cried, gave more than a few sighs, and completely enjoyed MAKE IT UP TO YOU.  I don’t purposefully read Rom-Com often (stories with humor, yes, but not specifically looking for Rom-Com), but I do know what I like and I really liked Marcus, Sophie, Polly, and kittens – let me say that again, Kittens.  So yeah, I had a blast and I’m hoping for another book real soon for there is more that I need to know.

Looking for a few laughing out loud moments and a tender love story as well?  Then you should be picking up MAKE IT UP TO YOU, now.
