Title: Hooking Up
Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.
Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.
They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.
Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

Helena Hunting created a sweet, horrific, funny tale in Hooking Up. Amalie is delightful. She’s smart and sexy and full of contradicting behaviors. Too many bad decisions motivate her to make a good one for a change. Marry the guy everyone thinks is a great catch but ignore a serious lack of compatibility, especially sexually, and become a different person to please this man. From the outside, she’s got a great life and has even convinced herself she’s happy. It takes the worst humiliation to wake her up.
The book will make you laugh, an entire suitcase of sex toys at the airport security screening, for instance, and you’ll cry and sigh. The characters are very well defined and perfectly likable or despicable as required. I so wanted to see Amalie find her happiness with a guy who fit with her and made her happy. Lexington was yummy. He’s sexy, hotter than heck and so dang nice to Amalie. I wanted him for myself!
I can recommend this delightful book to any reader especially those that love a happily ever after ending.
