Review and Giveaway: The Makeup Test by Vanessa M. Knight


Book info:
Title:  The Makeup Test
Author:  Vanessa M. Knight
Publication date: April 4th, 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Parker Breckinridge is a sophomore in college and already running her own internet cosmetics business. She doesn’t apologize for her successes—or anything else. She’s worked hard to get what where she is. She’s had to. It’s not like there was anything else in her life, despite her rich family.
Cade Adler doesn’t do relationships—especially relationships with uptight princesses. Been there. Done that. Destroyed the T-shirt. Besides, what with working full-time as a police officer and going to school, who has time for women? Not him.
With his tattoos and overall attitude, Cade is exactly what Parker doesn’t need. And between her father’s money and her piss-poor attitude, Parker is exactly what Cade doesn’t need.
So why is it they can’t stay apart?

My Review:
Source:  E-copy from Xpresso tours for honest review
My rating:  3.5 stars

Overall this was a quick, sweet story.  I liked the way it started, I enjoyed all the characters in the book.  Cade and Parker made a fun couple.  I really liked the way the final obstacle for Cade and Parker played out. I like how the author didn't go the way that most stories seem to go.  I like the loyalty and love between Cade and Parker, even as Parker tried to be self-sacrificing.  Also, I didn't know that this is actually part of a series, and it includes other characters from the other books in the series.  Of course since I enjoyed this one so much, I'll have to get the others in the series to find out how all of their romances worked out and how they came to be the couples that we meet in this book.  If you're looking for a sweet, easy read, this is one to definitely pick up.  


Author Bio:
Vanessa M. Knight has always enjoyed writing and once she found romance, she was addicted. She props her laptop in the suburbs of Chicago with her husband, son, and menagerie of 4-pawed, claw-babies (AKA cats and dogs.) That laptop has partnered-in-crime to write contemporary romances with a dash of humor and splash of snark.
When she has a few moments to spare, you can find her singing off key (but she assures us it’s still considered singing), reading, kickboxing or killing a few brain cells as she stares at the many sitcoms and dramas available through the Internet and TV.

  5. I understand that when it comes to reads like this, short quick and sweet works perfectly fine for me. There's nothing more that I could want from a romance novel, actually ^.^
