Book Review, Favourite

The Hookup by Kristen Ashley

5 out of 5 amazing amazing stars! Omg, my heart! Sometimes you just need to read a book which makes you feel good, which makes you feel SO GOOD. Sometimes you just need to read a book which reminds you that love can be straight forward, that love can be simple and easy, that love can just BE! I will keep my review short as if you have been following me for a while, you know how much I LOVE Kristen Ashley’s books!

I was in the mood for a contemporary romance so I decided to pick up KA’s newest release, and I was so glad I read it. It is just so classic KA:

*brooding/possessive alpha – check

*innocent/loveable heroine – check

*kids/babies – check

*great side characters – check

*steamy/hot love scenes – check (this is an adult romance so the hottest of the love scene is 5/5!)

*great story – check

What I love most about this is that there is no unnecessary drama. It is just two adults falling in love with each other, giving what each other deserves and showing each other what love truly means. It is so refreshing to read about and I appreciate it and I adore it. It is just so easy and simple, a great story to enjoy.

Also the main character Johnny Gamble, yes you’ve heard me right, Johnny Gamble has become one of my favourite heroes of all time. He is just so brooding, possessive, hot but such a gentleman. He shows you what it means by being a man, being a friend and being a lover, he is just everything! He reminded me so much of my other half. So sweet and swoon but alpha too.

I just love love love this story so much. This is book 1 in The Motor Oil series and I cannot wait for next books to come out! If you are a romance lover, you HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!


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.
