1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.
2.Remember to hate him.
3.Prove my brother wrong.
It should be easy.
As the owner of Pick-A-D*ck, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the d*ck pics—except this time, they're required.
My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-D*ck’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.
I disagree. I know it’s possible.
And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.
It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.
A fantastic read!!
I love Emma Hart’s writing, and this just might be my favorite book of hers yet!!!
The meddling of Peyton’s besties, a reunion between her and her high school crush, and the banter between all of them had me laughing most of the time. While Peyton was a bit of a drama queen, it fit this story perfectly. We get to see her character grow, and become this awesome emotional adult to add to her list of successes. Elliott was sexy, fun, and sweet all rolled in to one. My heart broke for him as he faced a huge challenge in this story, but knew it would all work out in the end. Add in the funniest 3 year old, and you’ve got a fantastic read that I would definitely recommend!!
Hilarious and heartwarming
Another hilarious, witty, and endearing romantic comedy from Emma Hart. As a long time reader, I love this fiery romcom streak Ms. Hart is on.
After making a bet with her brother, Peyton sees Elliott, a man from her past. She’s determined to have a fling and be done with him. I loved Peyton, her character was fun and flirty, she felt like a friend. Elliott had me at first sight. The two of them were explosive together. Elliott is such a good man- in and out of the bedroom.
Overall, The Hook Up Experiment is a must read from Emma Hart. The characters are real and relatable, there is tension and light moments. It’s evenly paced and a book you get enthralled with. I couldn’t help but smile while I followed along. The writing is fabulous, and a must read for the rom-com reader!
Review: The Experiment 1: The Hook-Up Experiment
The Hook-Up Experiment by Emma Hart is the first book in her Experiment series. This book follows the same group of friends first introduced in The Upside to Being Single. This Peyton's story and begins with a bet between her and her brother. Told in dual POV and complete with Peyton & Elliott's HEA, this was a wonderful read, as usual, from the author.
Peyton has her issues. Her business requires her to look at penises, her best friends pair her up with her nemesis from high school for a blind date, and he is too gorgeous to stay away from.
Elliott tried to explain things to Peyton years ago in high school. The fact that she is still simmering over the misunderstanding is a little charming and a little scary. Not one to be put off he is determined to share the truth with her and hope for the best.
Loved it - I cannot wait for Chloe & Dom's story in The Dating Experiment. Enjoy!
