The Makeup Test by Vanessa M. Knight
Pages: 144

Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆

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
I wanted to read this book because of Parker. She seemed like the kind of female character I would enjoy to read about. Smart, independent, and determined. Parker comes across as a bitch sometimes but really how many of us never do? I know that I can come across that way when I'm in protective/defensive mode but I'm actually a really nice person. Parker is one of those people who seem to be so focused on the end goal that she doesn't really see how she treats people to get there but then with her expectations it's easy to not "see" others.

Cade was a good counterpart. He has working man background. I liked him because he had focus too. Maybe I'm on a get focus kick right now. Oy, me and my random thoughts...  Any way, it was actually a fun and quick read. It's a bit predictable I liked the characters so I didn't mind. This is one of those books that you know is going to have a happy ending and you are reading to see just how they get there. I haven't read any of the Ritter University books but if they are anything like that one then this won't be the last. Besides I'm interested to know how Parker came off when she was just a side character.

*though it say book 6 you can read it out of order and not feel the least bit lost

About the Author
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.
