Blog Tour – The Hookup by Erin McCarthy Review

hookup-tour.png

Happy Friday Lovelies and Welcome to my Blog Tour Stop for THE HOOKUP by Erin McCarthy hosted by Inkslinger. I cannot wait to gush about Sophie and Cain! They are just so swoony and perfect together.

aboutthebook2

Is there an equation for the perfect hookup? Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than one plus one. . . .

Sophie: Numbers are my comfort zone, which explains why my sex life is a big fat zero. Then again, if I’m smart enough to earn a PhD, why can’t I calculate a way to get a guy into bed, just to see what all the fuss is about? With my prima donna sister, Bella, getting married in Maine, I figure her wedding is the perfect opportunity for my little experiment. And Cain Jordan seems hot enough—he’s certainly drunk enough—to show me what I’ve been missing. Judging by the body of evidence, it’s a lot. . . .

Cain: Being stuck in the same town as my lying SOB twin brother, Christian—who may or may not be the father of the son I’m not allowed to see—is a hell of a reason to drink myself silly after the lobster boat docks each day. Any port in a storm . . . But Sophie’s different. She doesn’t play around. And she’s becoming a habit I don’t want to break. Because the smartest woman I’ve ever met is also the sexiest—and the only one who makes me want to change.

Don’t miss Bella and Christian’s story in The Breakup!

Fun and Delicious Guilty Pleasure Treat with the Sweetest Ending 

reviewthoughts

The Hookup by Erin McCarthy was such an addictive and fun read. I devoured it in less than 12 hours and it was absolutely delicious.

I read You Make Me years ago and remember really enjoying that story. I don’t know why it took me so long to pick up another book by Erin McCarthy, but that’s definitely going to change.

This book had my heart from the beginning when McCarthy introduced a troubled alcoholic lobster fisherman and a brutally honest smart virgin student. I just had a good feeling about the plot and I really love opposites attract stories. McCarthy did not let me down one bit. The writing was fantastic, the characters were likable and realistic, and she included plenty of drama, swoons, and steam.

Sophie was seriously something else. Once she made me laugh, I knew she was going to be a badass and awesome character. Her quirky personality was absolutely refreshing and if I were I guy, I’d totally fall for her. She’s intelligent, beautiful, hilarious, brutally honest, a little innocent, and so damn adorkable. I honestly cracked up on a lot of the things she said and can see why Cain could not get enough.

Speaking of Cain… My heart absolutely ached for him. He’d been betrayed and hurt by the people he trusted so he’s very bitter about life. He’s the town’s “bad boy” who slept around, didn’t have a care in the world, and drank away his feelings and problems. He may be hot and sexy, but he’s also short-tempered and always angry. That being said, you’ll see that Cain’s actually not the big bad wolf he claimed to be. He’s incredibly loyal, hard-working, and honest. There’s a playful, loving, and sweet side hiding beneath all his anger and pain that you can’t ignore. Once you see the real Cain, you’ll swoon over and over… specially during the end of the book.

So about that hookup… it was only supposed to be a one time thing to finally shed away her V card. But, after a mind-blowing sexual exprience, Sophie wanted more and not long after, both she and Cain could not resist each other. Their chemistry was definitely hot and steamy! I loved all the flirty, sexy and heartwarming moments they shared. They were just the perfect fit and I totally rooted for them to have their happen ending.

Overall, this was an achingly beautiful story that I never wanted to end. It was realistic, enticing, hilarious, emotional and heartwrenching. The FEELS hit me so damn much and it was simply amazing. Definitely a fun and delicious guilty pleasure treat that romance lovers would enjoy.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for participating in a Blog Tour hosted by Inkslinger. All thoughts and opinions are my ow.

The Game Can’t Love You Back
Karole Cozzo
(Swoon Reads)
Publication date: May 15th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school’s baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she’s focused on one thing and one thing only—being the best pitcher she can be.

But when a freak accident forces her high school to be absorbed by the neighboring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren’t used to having a woman on their team. And the new team’s star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can’t afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher—even worse, to a girl.

As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?

Heartwarming, Cute, and Incredibly Inspiringreviewthoughts

I think I’m slowly warming up to sports themed books and might just be my newest obsession. I didn’t really care for them that much before since I’m not into sports, but the books I’ve read in the past few months were pretty darn good. The Game Can’t Love You Back by Karole Cozzo was no exception and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would. I even had tears in the end and couldn’t stop smiling and swooning.

Enemies to lovers stories are just the absolute the best. I love the angst, the tension, the bantering, the build-up, and of course the romance. Karole Cozzo did fantastically and managed to create a genuine, realistic, and believable story about two rivals who end up falling for each other. Eve and Jamie totally had me going crazy with all the FEELS and I loved it! From their not so nice insults to their adorably cute bantering, they made me gush and root for them. I thought their story was beautifully written and devloped with plenty of sweet moments and swoony kisses.

Eve and Jamie were so frustrtingly cute together and their chemistry was amazing. They were both incredibly competitive and did not give up too easily. Eve was fiesty and ridiculously stubborn, but also incredibly hard-working, dedicated and smart. Jamie had a reputation of being a player and was sometimes a jerk, so it took a while to win me over. However, by the end of the book, I can honetly say that he’s more than earned his place in my heart. Underneath all his bravado, Jamie actually had such a big heart and was really a sweet guy. Together they were kind of a mess, but also pretty darn perfect.

The Game Can’t Love You Back was a heartwarming and delightful story about acceptance and taking chances. It’s funny and cute, but also genuine and wonderfully inspiring.  I loved the writing, the characters and the crazy bantering that went from horribly sour to sugary sweet. This was definitely a home run for me and I cannot wait to read more books by Cozzo.

Amazingly Addictive, Satisfyingly Sweet, and So Adorably Sexy

reviewthoughts

The first book I read from this author was a vampire paranormal romance story, Blood Type. That book completely took my breath away and left me craving for more. When I saw the opportunity to read and review this duet, I didn’t hesitate one bit and immediately signed up. I just knew that I would enjoy it as much as Blood Type… and I absolutely did!

This book was EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be and more….SO MUCH MORE. K.A. Linde is without a doubt one of my favorite new authors this year and I am so utterly in love with her gorgeous and captivating writing style. I just cannot get enough of all the FEELS in her stories and this one definitely did not disappoint.

The Wright Love is such an achingly beautiful story about grief, family, friendship, hope and love. It’s incredibly well-written and the plot is well-paced with the perfect blend of angst, drama, humor and heart. And this book absolutely has HEART… and A LOT of it.

I loved Sutton and David. They were strong solid characters – likeable, genuine, realistic and really relatable. Their chemistry together was fantastic and I really enjoyed getting to know them as individuals, seeing their relationship progress, and swooning after every spine tingling moment and kiss. They were super adorable and so real that I couldn’t help but fall completely and head over heels in love with their story.

The supporting characters were really great too and I absolutely adored them. They each had their own quirks and were extremely likable. I also really enjoyed the awesome friendships, family dynamics and the bantering between the siblings was so endearing. I love reading about family relationships and this family… most definitely stole piece of my heart. I cannot wait to pick up the other Wright books and get to know them all.

This book was a delightful and entertaining read from start to finish. The Wright Love made my heart ache and filled it with hope and love at the same time. It’s amazingly addictive, satisfyingly sweet, and so adorably sexy. I loved every moment and cannot wait to see how Sutton and David’s story end.

If you enjoy stories with phenomenal writing, fantastic characters, realistic scenarios, amazing FEELS, and heartbreaking plot twists, then I highly suggest you pick this book up rigth now.
