Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Novel Thoughts

Hooking Up was masterful! It was wickedly sexy, hot and a little taboo!

I didn’t find Hooking Up as funny as her other romantic comedies because Amie is in a strange place in her life. She was mortified and ashamed at her wedding reception and she did the only thing she could think to do. She fled.

And through fate or chance she runs into the one man that will heal her. And gosh dang it! That was funny, hot as Hades and did I ever swoon!!! Sexy Lexy is everything that book boyfriends should be made of. He was so caring and gah! I thought I loved Bane, but there is just something about Lex.

“I want him to erase everything that came before him. I want this night to last forever.”

Lex and Amie have a huge mountain to climb, that mountain being her husband and his cousin. That sounds really wrong, but trust me, its not like that and you will be rooting for them. The situation they find themselves in is not an easy one an it is definitely a dramatic on.

“She’s my sun and I’m her moon, connected by an invisible thread, bound but free.”

The story of them scaling this mountain is a heartbreaking and joyous. I wanted Lex and Amie together since I met her douche bag fiancee in Shacking Up. Get ready for another five star read from Helena Hunting!
