The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

TheHookUpWhy I read it:  My blogger friends were tweeting how good this book is so I asked the author for a review copy and she very kindly said yes. (yay!)

What it’s about: (from Goodreads)  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.

What worked for me (and what didn’t):  I really liked this book.  A lot. Sometimes when friends tell me they’re enjoying a book and I should get hold of it, I wonder if my expectations will have been built too high.  I’m kind of afraid of over-selling the book for that reason.  I don’t want people to get promo fatigue and miss out on a great book. Because it totally met and/or exceeded my expectations.  I really loved it.
