BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Makeup Test (Ritter University #6) by Vanessa M. Knight

Book details:

The Makeup Test
by 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?

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This was a sweet fast little read. The heroine was forced to make a hard choice, but I’m happy with the outcome of the story. It read well, provided some great suspense, and overall had a heartwarming tone to it.

Since this was a shorter read, the details and descriptions weren’t intense, but they were great enough to give you the needed picture, without drawing the scenes out. There was enough detail to make me giggle at certain parts and enough description not to wonder what the scenery looked like.

The characters were written well and their chemistry with each other was on par. There were equally a number of happy characters as angry characters. By that I mean, there were just as many characters to make you laugh as make you mad. It was a nice balance and kept the story flowing well.

If you’re looking for a pretty quick, easy, satisfying read, then grab yourself a copy.

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.
