Title: Hooking Up
Author: Jessica L. Degarmo
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Would you go out to a bar and pick up any random handsome man to spend the night with to mute the heartbreak of your long-term lover - your rock - walking out on you? 

Caitlin Edison was so badly hurt by her boyfriend of ten years leaving her that she no longer wanted love, she wanted a cure for love. 

After several drinks, one of her best friends suggested she indulge in a one-night stand, a mindless night of fun with absolutely no consequences, to help her heal. 

At first, Caitlin scoffed at the idea, but the idea niggled at her and one reckless night, she plucked up all her courage and actually followed through. 

There was only one problem - how did Caitlin end up with the one guy in town who wanted more than a one-night stand?

'Hooking Up' is romance at its best – exhilarating, surprising, passionate, witty, moving, enraging, frustrating, sly, worldly and wise.

When Caitlin gets the ride of her life, so will you. Hook up with 'Hooking Up', place yourself in the safest of hands and let yourself go.

This book is about Caitlin just losing her boyfriend of ten years. She's having some major life issues, and trying to figure out what to do with herself. She ends up taking a friends advice to have a "hook up." But things go wrong when the guy keeps coming back. 

He actually wants to try to have a relationship with her. But he has some issues of his own. He is recently divorced with a 6 year old little boy. And an ex-wife who wants to make him miserable. 

A lot of this book is a romance. But it was also about Caitlin finding things out about herself. She really dug deep to figure out how to stand on her own two feet. 

The book was overall okay. The first half of the book I couldn't stand Caitlin. Then I started to really like her. However there was one part in the book that happened with Michael, that I didn't get because she is a "karate" expert. I won't reveal anything more, but that really bugged me. And it made me frustrated with Ryan when it happened. This book was a nice read to pass the time with. I didn't get too attached to the characters or anything. But it was a nice read.

  1. I normally enjoy books where a one night stand develops into something more, so this might be a fun read. It's been a long time since I read a all out romance novel.
