Publisher's Summary

When the new girl in town, Eliza "Izzy" Forrester, decides to hit the local drinking hole, she's not ready to meet the town's good, solid guy. She's definitely not prepared to engage in her very first hookup with him.
Then Izzy wakes up the next morning in Johnny Gamble's bed, and good girl Izzy finds she likes being bad for Johnny.
Even so, Izzy feels Johnny holding her at arm's length. But Johnny makes it clear he wants more, and Izzy already knows she wants as much as she can get of hot-in-bed, sweet-out-of-it Johnny Gamble.
Floating on air, thinking this is going somewhere, Izzy quickly learns why Johnny holds distant.
He's in love with someone else. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken. Whoever was up next would be runner-up, second best. Knowing the stakes, Izzy will take what she can get from the gentleman that's Johnny Gamble. And even knowing his heart might never mend, Johnny can't seem to stay away from Izzy.
Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. He's not going back, but Johnny still knows the right thing to do is let Izzy go.
And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips though his fingers.
But that's before Johnny realizes Izzy moved to town to escape danger that's been swirling around her.
And that's why Johnny decides to wade in.
That and the fact Izzy Forrester makes breakfast with a canary singing on her shoulder and fills out tight dresses in a way Johnny Gamble cannot get out of his head.

A WHIRLWIND OF WICKEDLY WONDERFUL FEELS

For twelve hours and twenty two minutes I was in Heaven, happily lost in Kristen Ashley’s heartwarming new love story of two characters who’d known heartache, who’d known loss and who’d known drama in their lives. But slowly these sweet beautiful caring characters found each other, found their soulmates, found love and found their HEA. Along the way there were walls to crumble, hurdles to get over, battles to fight, family members and friends to meet, romantic words and scenes to share, passions to ignite and threats from the past to overcome. And this hero and heroine did it in true KA style.. with feeling, with strong emotions, with hot sex, with compassion passion and possession, with torture and tenderness.. and with deep undiluted love.

I was mezmerized, sucked in and blown away by Izzy and Johnny’s unfolding love story, by their quirks, their personalities, their backstories, their family values and their emotions.. and I just wasn’t ready to leave the small town of Matlock Kentucky - even after the sweet sweet Epilogue. This is a well loved author who seriously knows her stuff, who knows how to pace a story, how to inject tension and drama at just the right time, how to pull at your heartstrings, how to write about a possessive alpha male and how to write a beautiful love story. Also, Stella Bloom and Lance Greenfield are two talented narrators who give five star performances, who bring characters and their stories to life, who inflect project and inject the emotions needed to stir, to soothe and to sate the many flavors of each scene.. and who made it a joy to listen to this audiobook.

Worth a credit? Well, as I bask in the afterglow of an entertaining enjoyable and loved listen about a damaged hero, a random hookup, the return of someone’s lost love (with all its complications) and a heartmeltingly beautiful hot love story.. there’s absolutely only one answer to give.. and that folks is a big fat YES that’s oozing with droolworthy sighworthy happiness.

***4.5 stars***

The story was great the narration was a little disappointing.

I decided to listen to The Hookup as well as read. This worked really well for me. Morning reading, listen while in transit to and from work and then a mix of reading and listening when I got home. SUCCESS!! It was actually a really enjoyable way to experience this story.

You know how sometimes you’re reading a book and you are stumped how to pronounce a name or a foreign term? Well, the narrators do the hard yards for you. I thought that was pretty cool.

Anyways… I really enjoyed The Hookup. The storyline was interesting, the main characters were my favourite type of Alpha meets Quirky, and it was HOT!! Seriously, these guys do not take long to show us that they are very, VERY well suited to each other.

I loved that Johnny was pretty straight with Izzy. He had baggage and didn’t hide it. Johnny knew that his heart was damaged but pretty quickly realised that Izzy may be the person to fix it. He made it clear he was interested, kept the communication open and always tried to be considerate of her feelings.

I’m a sucker for a blokey bloke that likes to look after his woman. I have no problems with a hero who steps up to help with chores whether they are mowing the lawn or washing the dishes. When he states that *He’s her man, and she better get used to having him do...* BE STILL MY HEART!! I dream of my hubby saying something like that to me.

Now, Izzy, she’s the kind of quirky that I like. She’s independent, strong and determined while also an animal lover, protective of her family and loves a good bargain. Izzy’s had some bad things happen in her life but she always picks herself up and moves on. She’s a self-confessed prude who steps out of her shell for the first time with Johnny because she just couldn’t help herself. He brings out the sexy in her…and she likes it.

The Hookup was a very easy story to settle into. Most of the drama is around the couple with them fighting it together, which is the way I like it. I can't wait to meet them again hopefully soon.

I’ll be honest, Stella Bloom did a fantastic job narrating and I probably would have enjoyed it more if she did it by herself. I’ve listened to Lance Greenfield narrate before and enjoyed it but this time his voice was a little overdone. I also struggled when he did two males having a conversation as he didn’t change his voice which made it hard to tell when characters changed and who was speaking. It was mostly OK, just not the best I’ve ever heard.

Kristen Ashley is still my favouritist author in the whole entire world and I loved stepping into Matlock, Kentucky with the characters she created. I was desperate to start and unfortunately read it too fast which means I was sad when it was over too quick. The trials and tribulations of a Kristen Ashley Addict.

I can't wait for more of the Moonlight and Motor Oil series.
