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.
5 YUMMY Stars!Hooking up is a standalone, but the characters from Shacking Up is featured in this book too. You don’t have to read Shacking Up prior to reading Hooking Up. But in all honesty, the books should be related in a series (but I’m sure the publisher will get more money this way).
Hooking Up is my favorite in the “series” so far. I loved the book from page one. I had a smile on my face the ENTIRE time and I read the book in one sitting. I couldn’t get enough of Amie and Lex.
Amie is embarrassed at her wedding. Totally normal right? Everyone at the wedding just heard Amie’s husband getting off and not by Amie. Meaning she was just cheated on and EVERYONE heard. So funny and sad at the same time.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the premise of the book. I’m totally into jilted brides. So when Lex and Amie show up on the honeymoon together, I’m all for the wild ride.
