Buddy read with my favorite hoochie Nikki. View all 71 comments. I was hooked from the first chapter with this college romance. The Hook Up had the right mix of drama, sexy times and swoony moments. But this one reminded me of why I love a well written new adult book. Drew has been hit by the dumb stick when it comes to Anna.

His mother warned him: It would be when I fell in love. Now, he is trying to fix what he said. Believe me, I was referring to the best places.

I was digging the whole vibe of this story. Drew is a big deal. I was in heaven reading this story.

The Hookup (Moonlight and Motor Oil, #1) by Kristen Ashley

Callihan has plans for more books. Each following book is secondary characters from the first book. To find out when more will be released click here. This story is a well done entertaining read. I have read this plot of the hot quarterback falling for the non-Barbie type of girl with issues many times over. However, the author brings her own flare and incorporates great banter and hot sex scenes to the tale. When Anna is hit on in her college classroom by the star quaterback of the school's football team she tries to resist.

Finally she caves to Drew's charms and attempts to keep him in a hook up category. And damn if I won't have a good time doing it. Because while I might be patient, I'm no saint.

His pov was well done and his feelings for Anna were butterfly inducing. I also found myself feeling very protective of him for the majority of the story he was such a sweetheart. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series about Gray the hot jock who can cook. View all 80 comments. Feb 18, Elle Kennedy rated it it was amazing. One of my all-time faves. Love this hero so much!

Aug 29, Jill rated it liked it Shelves: Anna Jones and Drew Baylor meet in history of philosophy class. She has no interest in football; he's the star quarterback. And despite their attraction to each other, Anna uses their differences to keep them apart. Until the hook up. Drew is a god. Anna is a late-bloomer. Ignored during her high school years, she still carries baggage with her despite developing from ugly duckling to almost swan. Still curvy, she's no longer the awkward chubster with frizzy red hair and braces.

I'm not a fan Anna Jones and Drew Baylor meet in history of philosophy class. I'm not a fan of hook ups, sex-only relationships or new-adult reads. But I am a fan of Kristen Callihan, sports romances and attraction-of-opposites. But it was the second half of the book which impressed me. Where the first half was boy meets girl, girl rejects boy, boy chases, girl gets caught, the second was particularly engaging, watching the growth of not only the protags but also some of the secondary characters, especially one of the footballers who is the hero in the next book.

Bonus points also for the dual points-of-view. There are numerous sex scenes and despite my recent criticism of a new-adult romance by another well-known author who has also turned her hand to new-adult stories, the sex scenes here are very well-written, steamy, without feeling gratuitous or excessive, and ultimately boring. What starts as just hook-up sex, becomes more as the development of their romance also brings a true intimacy into their love scenes.

Both Anna and Drew are likable main characters. Drew is particularly delicious; a well-drawn character with faults, but real depth, and not just a jock. The Hook Up is new-adult, and if that's not your cuppa, I'd say pass. But an unreserved recommendation though for readers of new-adult, and for readers who enjoy sports romances with college-age protags.

The girl who holds on to the insecurities of her past The larger than life football star A love story that starts as a hook-up because the girl can't ever imagine that the boy would choose her. I see the star too.

The Hookup

I need the dark. A love story where the girl makes the boy feel whole, feel alive for the first time since the death of his parents. With want and desire. With pain and longing and hope. Two people growing, learning and accepting how they feel. A connection so strong that they couldn't stay away. Too much pride to admit defeat and too much insecurity to take a chance.

But then I read this book and it changed my perspective completely because sometimes I won't explain what this book is about, just read the synopsis. But I will get into why I loved this so much and why it's worth reading!

This was a beautiful love story, a lovely, fantastic and sexy love story.

The Hook Up Plan: Season 1 (Trailer)

Drew, being the star quarterback at college falls for the quiet and reserved Anna Jones. She's had a rough time during her teen years and tries to stay away from Drew, the most popular, most coveted person on campus. Their hook-up changes everything and in the most wonderful of ways. This book had an emotional depth not found in other NA books I've read. It had a maturity that puts it ahead of it's genre.

The character growth was probably my most favorite thing to watch. The way Drew's and Anna's relationship developed and evolved was tender, realistic and had my heart doing backflips. Forget overdone drama, the angst here was on a whole other level. It was relatable, REAL, evocative and crushing at the same time.

See a Problem?

The sex scenes were incredible and although plenty, they were done in a way that never got boring or mistaken for filler. They were sexy, raw, intense and dripped emotion. But the real winners here were Drew and Anna. Drew has to be one of the most lovely and excruciatingly beautiful characters I've read in a long time.
