Making Up by Lucy Parker

I went in fully prepared to love this as I loved the previous books in Parker’s London Celebrities series but as much as I enjoyed Making Up, I don’t know if I can say that I loved it.

The blurb had me at enemies-to-lovers and Making Up delivered on that. Leo and Trix have been in hate with each other for years due to a huge misunderstanding. Given their friendship groups and the industry in which they work, they get thrown together here and there and never fail to deliver some well-placed barbs. Trix is an aerialist who has lost her confidence along the way and Leo is a makeup artist specializing is SFX (this fascinates me btw) who had an incident which has left him undesirable as an artist in the eyes of the industry.

One thing I freaking loved about this book was that once the misunderstanding between Trix and Leo was discussed and sorted out, it was done. No dragging it out, no sniping about it down the track. Love that. I actually really enjoyed their relationship and how they moved on from their past - both their past with each other and the difficulties they faced individually. I didn’t care for Leo’s sister, Cat and while I understand she has issues of her own, her attitude and demeanor took away from the pleasure of Leo and Trix.

I’m not sure if there’ll be another story to this series but I certainly hope there will be. As much as she annoyed me, I’d like Cat to find her HEA with someone who’ll put up with her!
