Hooking Up by Helena Hunting... review by Dawn

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.

                                                            ~~~~~My Review~~~~~

I needed this book! I have been in a horrible reading slump, but Hooking Up by Helena hunting, revived me. This book is so funny, but not so funny it over powers the message the author is trying to convey.  I am not allowed to reveal the leading man's identity, as per the authors request so lets just call him , "Steve."
Steve and Amalie are everything I wanted them to be. Amalie, is a reformed "bad girl" and she has JUST married the "right guy," when all hell breaks loose at the wedding reception.  I am not  going to spoil it for you, because it is hilarious  and the fall out is so good , it made yell out.
 " are you serious with this guy?"
Steve, is not looking to be the hero, but he is at the right place at the wrong time.  Amalie has always been his weakness and also a pawn in a competition between cousins. But little does she know Steve, has been watching her and wanting her for a long time.
The hilarity that ensues is perfect. Amalie and Steve'sbanter is spot on comedy gold. I  have laughed and enjoyed every word in this book. On the "sexy scale" (yes, it's a thing) Steve and Amalie are OFF the chart! It is so hot, fan yourself HOT. Steve is one smoldering hot leading man, Amalie has been pretending for so long, that when it is time to let go, Um, she does in glorious fashion!
I highly recommend this book,it is a standalone series. Meaning it does have crossover characters, but they are easy to follow and you will not be lost.

 5 Clocks!
