  • Cristina | CristiinaReads
    ➳Forbidden and sexily delicious. That’s what Helena Hunting has to provide in this compelling and forbidden love story… ➳After reading Shacking Up , it was no news that Amelie would be getting her own story. At first, it indeed was a mystery who would become her one true love. It was also known from the start that it would not have been Armstrong out of all people since his actions definitely provided an insight to the true person he is ...

    4.25 stars!!!Hooking Up is one of those books that kept a smile on my face. I loved Lexington and Amie! Their story wasn’t all laughs, though. It had parts that were emotional, and it was a bit of a forbidden love story as well. If you’ve read Shacking Up, you know the back story of Amalie. She is Ruby’s best friend. Lexington is Bane’s older brother. The book starts out at Amie’s wedding… and she’s not marrying Lex. This wedding…...

    4 What Happens in Bora Bora Stars“I assure you, there’s nothing nice about the things I want to do to you, the ways I want to have you.”“Oh. Well, that’s good to know.” The wide eyes and innocent stare morph into the same wild look I caught a glimpse of in her bridal suite. “Because I’m pretty sick and fucking tired of nice, polite sex.”Recovering wild child Amarie Whitfield has a history of making questionable choices when it c...

    5 YUMMY Stars!Hooking up is a standalone, but the characters from Shacking Up is featured in this book too. You don’t have to read Shacking Up prior to reading Hooking Up. But in all honesty, the books should be related in a series (but I’m sure the publisher will get more money this way).Shacking Up – Ruby and BancroftEye Candy (Novella) – Bane and Ruby’s Halloween gala (this was mentioned a few times in Hooking up, I will have to go b...

    This book was unbelievably SEXY!!!After reading the authors PUCKED series I knew she was no stranger of sexy times, but HOOKING UP was HOT!!!WOWZER!Amie and and her Hook-Up heated up the sheets wherever they met.If you haven't read SHACKING UP yet, Amalie had the misfortune of being engaged and eventually married to the wrong guy. It all came to a shocking halt during the wedding reception - and I can only say OMG!!!! And from there on it was a f...

    When I requested this book, I had no idea that it was part of a series. Now this book can be read as a stand alone, but both MC's are introduced in "Shacking Up" . Since the heroine, Amalie, plays a very big part in that book, I did something I normally don't do. I stopped reading this book and started "Shaking Up" first.I have to be honest and say that, reading the first book, made me enjoy "Hooking Up" more.It also made me hate Amelie's husba...

    Funny, sexy, and sweet.A wedding that ends oh so wrong. A rebound that’s meant to only be a hook up. Falling in love again after being hurt in the worst way. An unstable ex who won’t let you move on. An island getaway. A hidden family feud. Angst. Fun. Sex.If any of that sounds good to you, you should ABSOLUTELY read Hooking Up. I really enjoyed this story. It’s fun, but still also emotional. The hero has a bit of mystery surrounding him fo...

    4.5 starsI had such a good time reading Hooking Up, if you've been looking forward to Amalie's book, you will not be disappointed =) Review to come.
  • *The Angry Reader*
    ***ARC received for an honest review***It's a testament to Helena Hunting that this was a three-star read. A few too many of my reading NO-NOs and I was getting frustrated.Amalie and...Mr X end up in a romantic hotspot after her husband (of a few hours) cheats on her. They fight the attraction. They hook up. She's filled with regrets. She does flaky whiny things. She drinks..a lot. And he remains this rockstars super-solid dude who should prolly ...

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I have been salivating waiting to read this ever since I read Getting Down in the Eye Candy Anthology. So okay, I have not read Shacking Up, but since I had read Getting Down I knew the characters. Do I think you need to read the other books to understand this book….no. Do I recommend reading them….YES!! Why? Because you will be in for a ride! Where do I start with this story...With the bride who is left embarrassed and emotion...

    It was supposed to be the best day of her life, but it went downhill fast. Amalie Whitfield's wedding turned into a disaster of epic proportions. Amalie has a history of bad choices in men so she thought picking the suave and successful, Armstrong was a good choice that would make her parents proud...but still it came with bad consequences. And under the influence of alcohol and rage she tried to get back at him using someone close to them. Lexin...

    ARC provided through NetGalley 5 Awesome StarsI read Getting Down in the Eye Candy anthology before diving into this so that I could get the full experience of the series. I loved the short story interim between Shacking Up and this book.I was always curious about Anarchy Amie and why she was suppressing who she really was in the first book, which so concerned her childhood best friend, Ruby. You get to find out why in this installment. Though A...

    Hooking UpBy: Helena Hunting4.5 StarsI’ve gone and done it… I’ve Popped my Helena Hunting cherry with Hooking Up. Now I’m Hooked on her writing. Lexington and Armstrong= cousins who have grown up as brothers. One event turned their friendship into a game of who is the best in everything they do. From sports, to their jobs, to their girlfriends. It’s a battle of who will win. At times, it gets down right cut throat!!! Amalie has picked t...

    I mean it was ok, just a whole lot of sex, and not much emotional connection. I expected more based on Shacking Up.RTC

    Before I start this review, I just want to say, Helena Hunting has the best book covers, and hell if this isn't one of my favourites, I love it. Now that I've got that out of the way, all I can say now is….Wow! I was hooked on this book from the first chapter. The writing….Perfect. The story….Brilliant. The characters….Funny, sexy, complicated, intriguing, all the above. The interaction between all the characters was brilliant, the chemis...

    I am OBSESSED with these characters and Helena Hunting! Honestly, I first read the Chapter 1 Reveal of Hooking Up and was like WTH??!?!?? How have I never read a book by this author before???? And I was hooked so I hurriedly downloaded the Shacking Up audiobook and eBook because Jacob Morgan reading a book is just OMG sex on a stick! So after I devoured SHACKING UP and GETTING DOWN Novella in the EYE CANDY Anthology - I was finally ready for Amal...

    Yes, Yep and Yeah Baby! I was anticipating this book so much, and it met my criteria for 5 stars completely. We first read about Amie and Lex in Shacking Up and got a little insight to when they first met. Then we got some extra teasers with Eye Candy and the Halloween Ball that is mentioned in this book. So I couldn't wait to read more, and I have affectionately renamed them Willy Wonka and Sexy Lexy!Poor Amalie thought there wouldn't be any tro...

    I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for my honest review.I love Helena Hunting's books. They're fun, usually some laughs and a little heart angst, but in the end, swoon-worthy. I didn't feel that as much here.I was smiling, don't get me wrong, and I loved the h and H. I just missed them connecting as a couple. I didn't feel that mental and emotional connection, just the physical. However, I did get a lot of giggles out of it, it was ...

    3 stars!This was so cute, I hadn't read the previous one but luckily it wasn't needed to follow the story. Amalie is at her wedding when the groom gets caught cheating and that completely shutters her world. She doesn't hesitate and throws herself at the first guy she sees, the groom's cousin, Lex. When he turns her down because she's obviously in distress, she doesn't ask raids and instead runs away from him and to her honeymoon in Bora Bora alo...

    COVERGASM ALERT Holy hotness. That cover though?! I needed a hour to just take in the greatness!.Moving on though.... know this review will be vague so there's no spoilers. Well at least not from me anyhow. We know from the blurb that it's Amalie's story. I love her as a character she's fantastic! Relatable with human flaws but also funny sweet and a whole lotta saucy. It's a rollercoaster Journey for her but I cant deny I enjoyed the hell outa t...

    I absolutely loved Hooking Up by Helena Hunting. First met Amalie in Shacking Up and I gotta say I hated her boyfriend Armstrong. He seemed like the worlds biggest dickhead and sure enough he is and then some.... So many times I wanted to junk punch him. The very first chapter literally had me yelling obscenities and wanting to inflict bodily harm on multiple people. LOL And poor Amalie she definitely didn't deserve what happens to her in this bo...
