Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The sparkling and heartfelt romantic comedy debut from Lily Menon, Make Up Break Up.... 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?"-- Provided by publisher.

    Annika Dev is the 24-yeard-old CEO of Make Up, an app that helps couples communicate more effectively. The app is her passion, but development is taking longer than anticipated, and bankruptcy looms. Meanwhile, her nemesis is thriving and has just moved his office into her building. Before Hudson Craft created the Break Up app, which enables people to outsource their break ups, he and Annika met at a conference and spent an intimate week together. The Hudson she remembers is nothing like the infuriating person he is now, and she's ready to crush him at the investment pitch contest. Yet she can't deny the strong chemistry that still exists between them. This entertaining enemies-to-lovers romance marks the adult debut of the popular YA author, writing as Sandhya Menon, of When Dimple Met Rishi (2017). The narration solely focuses on Annika and is sometimes redundant, which makes for uneven pacing. But the sexual tension sizzles, and themes of familial expectations and financial stress add richness and intrigue. Hand this one to fans of Alisha Rai and Sally Thorne.

Author Notes

Lily Menon has always been enamored of romantic comedies and happily-ever-afters in all shapes and sizes. Her very first love story, written at age nine, was about a handsome boy who wooed the heroine with books, chocolates, and a very fat puppy. Now Lily lives with her own handsome boy (who indeed wooed her with books, chocolates, and fat puppies) in the mountains of Colorado, where she spends her days dreaming up kissing scenes and meet-cutes. When she's bored, Lily also masquerades as New York Times bestselling YA author Sandhya Menon. Make Up Break Up is her first adult romance.
