The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.

Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely.

That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

All’s fair in love and football…Game on.

New Adult/Contemporary Romance with a HEA - Recommended for readers 17 and older.

Nancy’s review

What is wrong with me? Why did it take me so long to read this book? I’m very disappointed in myself! But very happy that I finally got to the chance to read it.

I’m not going to summarize what this is all about, because there many reviews out there that explain it. And sadly, I feel like I am the last person to read it. I’m simply going to talk about how much I LOVED The Hook Up

Let’s start with Drew, shall we?

I liked Drew from the start. I could tell that he was different and not the arrogant jerk that Anna assumed he was. Drew knew that Anna was hesitant to be in a relationship with him, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing her. He was so good with his sweet words. I just loved all of him!

“I love you, Anna Jones. That’s not going to change. I loved you when I thought we’d never be together, and I love you still.”

I liked Anna. She was independent, a smart ass, funny, and intelligent. There were moments where I really wanted to shake her. I understood why she was afraid to start something with Drew, but man, sometimes I just really needed her to realize what truly made her happy. BUT I am glad that she finally came to the realization that she had deep feelings for Drew, and decided to get over her fears.

“Because what I felt for you was stronger than my fear. You won, Drew. You’ll always win with me.”


Overall I really enjoyed reading this one and  I couldn’t have been any happier.
