Make It Up To You – My Book Review

So last month I got all bookish and received a free advance copy of Make It Up To You by Lucy Keeling, in return for my honest review. And you know I’m always brazen! Want to know the lowdown…?

Make It Up To You – Woo Hoo!

Ooh, so I’ve been itching to read this beauty for a LONG TIME! If you’re in my Facebook group Chick Lit and Prosecco, you’ll already know that the author Lucy Keeling is one of our liveliest members. She’s sassy, friendly, funny…and we’ve all been dying for her debut novel Make It Up To You to hit our virtual shelves.

(If you’re not yet in the Chick Lit and Prosecco group – hop on over! The party is waiting for you, and you get to bask in the gorgeous glow of authors like Lucy. Some of their magic is bound to rub off…right?!)

Anyway, ladies. The wait is over. Make It Up To You is here, in all its glossy, shimmering glory. Now let me tell you more…

Make It Up To You – The Official Blurb

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 …

The Brazen View on Make It Up To You

OK, so that was the official blurby stuff. Cool, huh? But what did I think about it?

Was it good?

Was it better than good?

Was it absolutely awesome?

Hell yes, of course it was! It was all that and more. Trust me – I’m a busy mum. If a book is not rocking my world, there’s no time to get as far as page two. I’ve got nappies to change.

This book is a whole lot of fun, frolics, furry kittens and friendship – and you absolutely don’t want to miss it. Give yourself a break, mumma, and get reading. Your world of me time awaits.

They Did What?!

So what was it all about?

Well, there was beauty vlogger Sophie trying to be all businessy, whilst hot gardener Marcus was parading around her bushes wearing nothing more than cargo shorts and a cheeky smile. No wonder she couldn’t keep her eyes on her precious Hobnobs.

Now I don’t want to give too much away, but if you like a bit of hot…err…trotting, you will not be disappointed! And I don’t mean all those steamy cups of builders’ tea…

Our Lucy knows how to write a passionate scene, and she doesn’t hold back. She’s a cheeky little word mistress. Prepare to be wowed.

Rudy scenes, Hobnobs and hunks in trunks? Sign me up, I hear you cry. Where can I buy this modern masterpiece? Let me at it! Well, here’s an Amazon link:

    1. Bless you, you’re such a darling! Wouldn’t it be fab to blog every day. If only someone would do all those admin-y bits…😂 xx

  1. This sounds like such a fun read! I’d have to hide it from my husband though, one whiff of a sex scene and he’d be getting into character as the hunky gardener quicker than you can say Chick Lit…!!

I'd love to hear your views. (Please be nice!)
