When the new girl in town, Eliza “Izzy” Forrester decides to hit the local drinking hole, she’s not ready to meet the town’s good, solid guy. She’s definitely not prepared to engage in her very first hookup with him.

Then Izzy wakes up the next morning in Johnny Gamble’s bed and good girl Izzy finds she likes being bad for Johnny.

Even so, Izzy feels Johnny holding her at arm’s length. But Johnny makes it clear he wants more and Izzy already knows she wants as much of hot-in-bed, sweet-out-of-it Johnny Gamble.

Floating on air thinking this is going somewhere, Izzy quickly learns why Johnny holds distant.

He’s in love with someone else. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken. Whoever was up next would be runner up, second best. Knowing the stakes, Izzy will take what she can get from the gentleman that’s Johnny Gamble. And even knowing his heart might never mend, Johnny can’t seem to stay away from Izzy.

Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. He’s not going back, but Johnny still knows the right thing to do is let Izzy go.

And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips through his fingers.

But that’s before Johnny realizes Eliza moved to town to escape danger that’s been swirling around her.

And that’s why Johnny decides to wade in.

That and the fact Eliza Forrester makes breakfast with a canary singing on her shoulder and fills out tight dresses in a way Johnny Gamble cannot get out of his head.

  • Not impressed...

    By Hardcore Book Lover
    The book is choppy with missing words from sentences that make it not make sense. I honestly thought it was translated from another language with how off it was, until the bio said “she grew up in in Indiana “! Lol. Should have read bio first to see they couldn’t spellcheck the basic that goes in all books, to know the book would be poorly written.
  • This is such a good story

    By Red 80
    I adore Kristen Ashley, this book was a surprise for us readers. This story was unexpected but so good. The Hook Up I have read so many times when I what a feel good story. Johnny Gamble and Eliza (Izzy). Eliza Forrester is what every young girls would want to be like when they grow up in difficult circumstances. She made life better for herself without being hard, bitter. She is a gift that Johnny didn’t see coming. Without giving away anymore this is such a good book. You will not be disappointed Kristen Ashley rocks.
  • Love Kristen

  • Did I read another book?

    By __Karissa
    I could not enjoy this book at all, it was horrible! I was so disappointed because there is rarely ever other races represented in books and thought it was great that the author included others, but the description of the character was horribly stereotypical. You would think that an author could have found something beyond “very black, very round” as a description, the main character did not receive this same treatment at all as there were so many different descriptives used for her!
  • Classic KA…but some similarities...

    By lovesbooks6565
    This is classic KA....especially if you loved the Colorado Men series. I won't get into the synopsis of the need to read it! If you are a KA fan, you will definitely love this book....although there were scenes that were very similar to here other books. In fact, there is a scene where Izzie looks in the mirror and thinks something. This scene is taken from Sweet of my favorite KA books. Also Izzy's friend reminds me of many of KA's heroines' sidekicks/friends, even down to the description. All that being said, I did enjoy the last 2 KA books(Complicated and the Hook Up). Both books remind me of why I love her books so much! Izzy can be a bit annoying in her "head talk" but she is a solid heroine. And of course Johnny Gamble is swoon worthy! Classic alpha hero!
  • Page One

    By Book 2 Needed
    I gotta admit that there are some stories I read that I skim, they go on and on about things that just don’t hold my interest. Not KA, I devour it ALL. Every word, every chapter, every title! I live in impatience waiting for the next book, once it arrives it sits because I know once I read it I’ll need to wait again. I no longer read the blurbs on the back cover, I just start at page one.
  • Great read

    By Joan.Jean
    When you're smiling your way through a book that’s when you know it's a good one.. This one took me a little to really dive into but when it did, I fell hard. Such a great read. I want more, looking forward to the next couple's story. Highly recommended!!
  • Great read if you get past chapter 1

    By steph_rae
    The first chapter is an editing disaster, but if you can get past that it is a very good story.
  • Great Read

    By T1darryl
