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.
Laughed so much I cried
5 star Review Hooking Up by Helena Hunting
A stand alone novel from the very talented Helena Hunting. Hooking Up had me laughing so much it hurt.
Romantic comedy is fast becoming one of my go to genres to read. Hooking Up was one of those books that had me laughing, smiling and generally feeling great.
We heard about Amalie and Lex in Shacking up and I couldn’t wait to dive in to Hooking Up to see what these characters have been up to. Their chemistry together is smoking hot and almost electrifying.
I love Ms. Hunting's style of writing, she ensures that her characters are not “perfect”. I was entertained and captivated from the start. If you want a fun, not too long romantic comedy to read, then I highly recommend Hooking Up, you won't be disappointed.
Hooking up is about two strong characters who come together on an island and make magic.
I quite liked this book. I have recently read a few books that weren’t really my style of writing and I knew a few chapters in that I was going to enjoy this one.
Ok the main reason I liked it was for the spice. Phew. Hot. But also it was funny and lighthearted enough to give you that falling in love feelings. The whole ex thing was all a bit much IMO and did get a little repetitive but it didn’t ruin the book for me.
This book is part of a series but I read this one first. I think I’ll be going back and reading the others.
Dual POV, med-high spice, 18+
Hot sexy and secret
I loved this story !! Aime and lex have amazing chemistry !! Aimee’s circumstances are devastating but lex is so swoon worthy and perfect !
Their fate was interrupted by the manipulative cousin Armstrong but fate itself has other plans for them .
There are plenty of awkward laugh worthy moments in this book and plenty of hot sexy moments too! Very entertaining and a great read!
This is book two in the shacking up series and although it’s not 100% necessary to read book 1 first it does help to give a background understanding to Aime and Armstrong as well as the other characters present throughout the story .
