    A delightful and fun read!

    Amie Whitfield was publicly humiliated by her cheating husband, on her wedding day. She is devastated and feels guilty because she made the wrong choice. Amie is a strong-willed, poised woman brought low by her husband's betrayal. Needing to get away from all the drama and to clear her head, she decides to flee to Bora Bora, on a solitary honeymoon. At the airport, she runs smack- dab into the hero of this story. The hero … I loved every single thing about this man! He’s so adorable, not to mention hot! The way he was with Amie was just everything! They are long-time friends, but Amie is the one woman he has always wanted but never could have. Amie’s husband is his best enemy and his perfect opposite. He is Amie’s knight in shining armor and comes to her rescue when she needs him most. He protects her from all the things she isn’t ready to deal with. They enjoy the time spent together. The banter between them flowed easily and their love story took shape almost immediately. They define boundaries to their relationship, but their connection is intense and undeniable, their chemistry is combustible. Amie was truly entertaining and she made me laugh out loud. She’s feisty, brazen and at the same time she’s comical without meaning to be. Her “Anarchy Amie” side was absolutely irresistible. The supporting characters were fantastic and interesting in their own right, with appearances of Bane and Ruby from “Shacking Up”. This book was an absolute delight! Helena Hunting has penned a sexy and seductive gem with playful repartee, a vivacious heroine and a dreamy hero! This author knows how to write an entertaining story in a way that is fun and unique. I loved the dynamic and vibrant characters, they are fire, steam, wit and chemistry! So if you are looking for a book that will have you smiling, sighing and blushing, then this is it! I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher and voluntarily reviewed it.

    5 Permanent Hook-Up Stars!

    This was one deliciously sexy book and I loved every freaking minute! It was laugh out loud hilarious, but also packed an emotional punch when necessary. I couldn't get enough of Amie and her Hottie hook-up! Though this book can be read as a stand alone, it would be best enjoyed after reading Shacking Up and the novella Getting Down, since that is where all the characters are initially introduced. The book starts off with a bang (or I guess more accurately a blow!) and you can't help but get wrapped up in all of the fall out from Amie's disastrous wedding. I know that I wanted to throttle her arrogant and unfaithful groom more than once for the offenses he committed. It was heartbreaking to see Amie's world crumble to pieces and to see her confidence so shaken. Readers will cheer her on though, as she rediscovers herself and her sexuality. When fate intervenes and brings her and a familiar piece of man candy together in paradise, the sparks really fly! Their chemistry was scorching hot and I loved the two of them together! It was especially fun and steamy when they got into the carry on that Amie so hilariously had to explain to airport security ;) Hottie hook-up was everything Amie needed and was so patient and supportive. Watching their relationship evolve and change was amazing. Sure, there were some missteps and speed bumps along the way, but in the end their connection was undeniable and that epilogue left me with a huge smile on my face. Another thing I loved about the book was being able to catch up with Bane and Ruby! Getting an update on their relationship and future was so wonderful! I am still a devout member of The Church of Bane Cock, though I will say that Hottie hook-up gave him a run for his money! I hope that Helena Hunting will continue to write many more books in the world of these characters! You definitely don't want to miss this sexy romantic comedy! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Excellent

    Helena Hunting is a new author to me but after reading Hooking Up I will definitely be reading more of her books! I really enjoyed this one. It's fun, very sexy, and has characters you just can't help cheering for. On what should have been the best day of her life Amalie Whitfield is humiliated in a way no bride should have to face. During the reception no less. In an attempt to get away from it all and forget what shamble her life is in Ami decides to go on her honeymoon alone with no intentions of staying alone once she gets there! The Person she runs in to and could definitely help her forget is the last person she should want but he's the only one she craves. Will he be the most fun she ever had or the worst decision she ever made? A great read that I would definitely recommend.

    3.5 stars- didn't quite hook me

    I was excited to read Amalie’s story after meeting her in Shacking Up. Although the hero wasn’t a surprise because I read the short story included in the Eye Candy anthology, that snippet only served to build my interest in this couple and their full story. For those new to the series, these books can easily be read as standalones. There are a significant amount of cameos by previous characters, but the backstories are recapped enough to ensure no reader is lost on the history. Hooking Up definitely showcased this author’s notorious fun, sexy side, offering up quite a few comedic moments and plenty of heat. Where Hooking Up lost me was its predictability. The book followed so many romance clichés that it didn’t quite spark my full interest for a good portion of the story. In Shacking Up it’s clear that Armstrong and Amalie aren’t the best match, and I really hoped there would be a little more explanation as to how that relationship came about. While I got answers, I can’t say that I found them all that satisfying (of course that’s on me as a reader, but it affected my enjoyment). I wanted to make sense of it so I understood her character better, but it didn’t really happen and honestly some of her reasoning and actions in this book made me like her a little less than I did going in. Who I did like even more than expected was the hero. Frankly, he surprised me in all the good ways. He was a nice balance for Amalie and I liked how their relationship progressed. I also found the latter parts of the story more interesting as things came together and Armstrong’s motivations came to light. Overall, I liked the couple but this just wasn’t all that I expected after reading Shacking Up and Eye Candy. I read a lot and definitely don’t expect every book to offer up something totally unique, but I like when a book surprises me with its approach, and unfortunately Hooking Up didn’t. While I certainly didn’t devour this book quite like Shacking Up, it had good pacing and interesting primary/secondary characters. I’m not sure if there will be more to this series, but there were a few secondary characters that left me curious so I would likely read the next book. I think Miss Hunting fans certainly will not be disappointed in Hooking Up and I would recommend the title to readers looking for a flirty romantic comedy that offers a nice escape. *eARC provided via Netgalley.
