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.

Maria’s Review

➦So, this is the first series by Helena Hunting that I’ve picked up.

➦Ok, but you don’t know me! You don’t know my struggles!

➦I am glad I finally got to reading these books. They are hilarious and sexy. This book will transport you to a tropical island along with the heroine, who ends up going on her honeymoon alone. It’s sad. And the wedding drama that happened to her was like something out a book. 

➦So what happens when, on said island, she meets a certain someone she has previously humiliated herself in front of? As in, like… “My husband is a cheating bastard, can I please ride your dick now to get my revenge?” 

➦If you enjoy “what happens in…” kind of stories with whole lot of humorous drama and likable characters then pick this one up. I loved this hero to bits. Don’t even know how I fell in love with him so quick, it just happened! Might have been the abs.
