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.
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.

Fun and Delicious Guilty Pleasure Treat with the Sweetest Ending
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.
