Hooking up by Helena Hunting

October 08, 2017

What a sweet and hot read. Read it through in two days and that does say a lot. 
Lately, I've been in a reading-slump. So, I buy books - read 5 chapters and delete it. 
But this book, these characters and this story - kept me consuming. Literally, I devoured it like my favourite chocolate from Läderach or Luxembürgerli from Sprüngli. 
If you know what those two things are - you'll exactly know, how delicious this book was. 





What can I tell you about this book, without spoiling it for you guys?! (Legit, nothing)

So I'll just put the blurb down here: 
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 mean damn, right? 

Well, why should anyone read this book?

If you're up for a really entertaining and steamy romantic comedy - then this book is the right fit for you. 
You'll be grinning like an idiot the whole time and you're body will go up in flames, cuz that's how hawwwt the intimate scenes are. *droooools* *drools again* 
And the story-line: Guys, it's perfection. How everything is just perfect. How everything makes sense. I loved it. Entertainment pure. 

What's different about this book?

Uhm, first things first: The jokes aren't forced at all and everything seems real, as if this story could be real. And as a hopeless romantic, this book made me realise - that everyone will find their soulmate, eventually. :)
Hooking up by Helena Hunting, is not a book, which will leave you speechless and will be a constant company your whole life, but it sure is a damn fine fling. ;) Got it? :p
While the whole fling, you just feel free, careless and happy. That's different about this book. 

Character description:

Two words, amazing and lovable. Really, they are perfect for this book. I would never ever try to chance them. 

If you're looking for: 

- a lil anxiety
- an amazing hero
- an interesting villain
- a lovely heroine
- an amazing plot/storyline
- HEA
- steamy (and I mean really steamy) scenes
- a good laugh while the whole book
- being entertained 
Then you're in good hands here! 

My opinion:

This book is nothing new, special or breathtaking - but it sure gives you a good time and we all need that once in a while. :)

My rate: 4 out of 5
