Publisher's Summary

A sexy, smoldering, romantic comedy from international best-selling author, Christina Ross.

After years of struggling in New York City, I’m on the verge of making it big in my career...until he enters my life, and then all bets are off.

"He" would be Hunter Steele, the ridiculously hot show-runner of a popular reality show called The Terrible Teens.

My name is Julia Jacobs, and on the very day I’m promoted to become an assistant agent at the talent agency CAA, I sign Pepper Winters, a billionaire’s daughter with a massive social media following who wants to be on the next season of Hunter’s ultra-toxic reality show.

No. Matter. What.

Trouble is, the moment Pepper and I meet with Hunter to discuss bringing her on the show, I can’t keep my eyes off him. He’s tall, dark, handsome, and has something in his jeans that looks like a damned anaconda.

In other words, he’s exactly the type of man I don’t need to be distracted by right now. After all, I have a limited amount of time to prove myself to CAA. If I do? I’ll be promoted to associate agent. And if I don’t? I’ll be out of a job altogether.

But with Hunter coming on to me, how in the hell am I supposed to focus on my job? At first, I try my best to resist him, but after a disastrous breakup, I’ve been single for four years, and a girl has her needs. As the weeks pass and we come to know one another better, my guard starts to drop. Should I give Hunter a chance? Or should I let him go forever when I learn about his playboy past....?

I’ve been burned once. I won’t be burned again. And as much as I want to believe in Hunter when he tells me he’s moved beyond his loose reputation of bedding too many women to count, I now have to wonder if I can trust him.

And if I dare to do so, will he and I have a chance to make it....?

With Christina Ross' gift for delivering romance, humor, wit, and characters you'll love and never forget, Making It will leave listeners swooning until the end.

I wanted more of Hunter and less Pepper.

I wanted more Hunter and less of teen girls arguing. We had to wait over 30 chapters until the two leads finally had sex.

Better than the first!

Epiphania was right, these two were made for one another! I loved how this story came together and how old fashioned Julia was and how redeemed Hunter was...sigh, it's a beautiful little story of finding love in NYC. Great job to the author and the narrator! Bravo!

Great performance

I must say I wasn’t sure on this book to begin with but it has a great storyline that many youngsters can learn from. It shows that there is issues with most people including the ones who seem to have many friends. Great narration. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Good RomCom Great Narration!

I enjoyed listening about all of different Relationships Julia has with the other characters. This love story was a good read. I will say it took a few try’s to get into (not sure why) but glad I pushed threw. It was an interesting office romance. The Narration was excellent.

Good Ol Love Story

Love the characters and their love for one another! I understand the book going so far before things really progressed, but the wordage used for that was lacking the spunky hot, no holding back verbiage! Narrators were Absolutley spot on and we’re amazing!!

Julia💘Hunter! Fun & Enjoyable RomCom! Great Listen

I really enjoyed this book, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines that captivated me from start to end. The characters are complex and well developed. I really liked Julia, the lead female, she is smart and driven to advance herself in her career. She was recently promoted to assistant agent for one of the top talent agencies. She lands a huge contract for her first client, Pepper, a teenage social media sensation. She is set to star in a teenage reality television show run by Hunter Steele. Hunter is also looking to make a name for himself in the industry. He takes an immediate liking to Julia, but she has heard rumors of his player tendencies and does not want to get involved. I liked how he pursued her, not giving up and convincing her that he is not who he used to be. Christina Ross created a gem of a RomCom here, it was well plotted and played out nicely, from the getting to know you phase to the romance, as well as the reality show and their own careers. There is never a dull moment, plenty of drama, some angst, twists, some fun moments as well as sweet ones. I have to mention a bit more about Pepper, she was a character and a half, rambunctious at times but always telling it like it is. She is 14 going on 20, wise beyond her years. Julia was great with her, in the end we learn what Pepper’s deal is and why she is how she is. Thank you for this great story and the emotional rollercoaster ride. I listened to the Audible edition narrated by the talented Amanda Stribling. She brings these characters to life, give each their own voice and personality. She put a lot of heart in to her performance, you can hear the characters emotions as well as the drama of the story. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen. Thank you 🎧@AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Funny & Romantic

Romcoms have fast become one of my favorite sub-genres and this story has humor galore! But not only is it funny, it has a some defining moments that will bring tears to your eyes and a blossoming romance that cannot be overlooked! Julia has just received a promotion to be an assistant agent and her first job is dealing with a bratty teen who want to be on "The Terrible Teens" reality show. Of course no one wants to deal with her, so when Julia goes in for negotiation and meets Hunter Steele, she is ready to make her mark. What she isn't ready for is the attraction she feels towards Hunter! And our story begins. Ross intricately weaves a romance into this reality based TV show. While Julia and Hunter are the main characters, and their story more than romantic, the secondary characters truly make the story. Pepper is Julia's client and she her part in this book will make you cringe at times, sad intermittently and laugh at her antics. She brings life to the TV show, and her realistic life makes you stop and think about what we perceive to be true of people and what actually is true. Love when a story can be funny, steamy and have some meat to it! It is a great listen, with witty banter, a lot of romance and incredibly fun scenes. Amanda Stribling brings it all to life with her wonderful narration. She is incredibly talented with her voices, ranging from teenage to adult with ease. She even throws an accent in there flawlessly moving between characters. I enjoyed her narration immensely.

Making It

Making It is a fun, flirty rom com. It's the story of Hunter, who is a sexy show-runner of a reality teen TV show, and Julia, who is a quick-witted talent agent for 14 year old Pepper -- the daughter of a billionaire who wants to be on Hunter's show. When Julia and Hunter meet for the first time, there is an instant spark that neither of them can deny. The storyline was interesting and the characters were likable. This is book 2 in the series but it is a standalone. I had no trouble following Making It without having read book 1 (Faking It) first. Amanda Stribling has narrated several books I have listened to and has always done an amazing job but her portrayal of Epifania was hilarious and perfectly done. She really knows how to bring each and every character to life. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Making It

This was a first for me by Christina Ross, but a very entertaining listen. The story is well written, and Julia was a bit badassy. The performance by Amanda Stribling, brought this book to another level. The story and performance meshed very well together. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer 🎧AudioBookObsession

Making It

Julia finally gets the recognition she has been working hard for. Her first assignment is to get her new client signed with Hunter. Sparks fly between these 2 from the moment they meet, but Julia will let nothing get in the way of her success. This story was so fun and well written. My favorite scene was in the ball room. The book will keep you laughing and guessing just what comes next. Amanda Stribling does a fantastic job on the narration and bringing the book to life with her unique characters. Thanks Audiobook Obsession for the recommendation.

selfish love..

I enjoyed this story. Julia is trying to make it at the company. Hunter is a director for a reality show. She ends up being Pepper's guardian during the filming. Hunter and Julia start spending time together and fall in love. She is still hung up on the ex from years ago . afraid to commit. tries to push him away. then all the drama with the reality show girls. amanda stribling is phenomenal at the narration. at times you never know it was really a guy doing the parts. 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer

Closer to 4 stars

This is my first book from this author and I'll definitely check her others out. I liked the writing and feel like the idea was a good one but the execution lacked. I needed more from our couple and less about the show. The performance was fine, overall it was ok but with a bit more focus on the romance, this one could've been great.
