Love, romance, second chances, fairy-tale endings…these are the things Annika Dev believes in. Her app, Make Up, has been called the “Google Translate for failing relationships.”
High efficiency break-ups, flashy start-ups, penthouses, fast cars…these are the things Hudson Craft believes in. His app, Break Up, is known as the “Uber for break-ups.” It’s wildly successful―and anathema to Annika’s life philosophy.
Which wouldn’t be a problem if they’d gone their separate ways after that summer fling in Las Vegas, never to see each other again. Unfortunately for Annika, Hudson’s moving not just into her office building, but into the office right next to hers. And he’ll be competing at the prestigious EPIC investment pitch contest: A contest Annika needs to win if she wants to keep Make Up afloat. As if it’s not bad enough seeing his irritatingly perfect face on magazine covers when her own business is failing. As if knowing he stole her idea and twisted it into something vile―and monumentally more successful―didn’t already make her stomach churn.
As the two rival app developers clash again and again―and again―Annika finds herself drawn into Hudson Craft’s fast-paced, high velocity, utterly shallow world. Only, from up close, he doesn’t seem all that shallow. Could it be that everything she thought about Hudson is completely wrong? Could the creator of Break Up teach her what true love’s really about?
I received this ARC from the publisher through NetGalley. Thank you!
Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon is the story of Annika and Hudson, two young people who had two different businesses. Annika had developed the app Make Up, which had the goal to reunite people and to give them a second chance at a relationship, and Hudson who developed the app Break Up, helps people to break up easily just with simply massages without the emotional baggage.
Annika and Hudson spent together a beautiful week in Vegas but now they were enemies and they want to win Investment Pitch Contest, which will help them with their business and Annika wants to prove to the Hudson that not everything is about money.
They prank each other and it was funny but they wanted to prove to each other that they were the best and they will succeed in their business. They had two different businesses but both of them want to change people’s lives.
I loved Hudson and Annika and I loved that both of them wanted to succeed in their businesses. I loved their chemistry and their banter and their jokes. I loved that they were vulnerable and they fought for their feelings. I really liked Make Up, Break Up by Lily Menon.
