Return to Book Page. Preview — The Hookup by Kristen Ashley. But Johnny makes it clear he wants more and Izzy already knows she wants as much 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. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken.
Whoever was up next would be runner up, second best. Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips through his fingers.
That and the fact Eliza 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.

It's just like other KA books See all 13 questions about The Hookup…. Lists with This Book. You guys sitting down? I sure hope so. Because it is with great Grinch joy and bah humbug happiness that I say I really liked this book. I know, I know For those around here who know me and and my history with Kristen Ashley, you know how exciting this is for me.
For those who don't I ADORE her rambling lunatic way of writing that makes connections between characters so strong, so believableso I'm-right-there-with-them, sitting in their living rooms, taking in their candid family photographs. And then there was Wild and Free. And my head exploded. I'll link some of those reviews at the end of this bad boy.
And I have been called a fair-weather friend for those reviews. A fake fan for some of those reviews. A drama seeking whore who only read those books to write rants for those reviews. And you know what? I scoff at that. Because I am one of her biggest fans.
I have read over 52 of her books, people. And as true FANS, we are allowed to be passionate and critical of stuff we don't like from authors we love.
People don't read and buy 52 things they know they are going to dislike. That's just bad math. Most fans funds and space allowing, of course get everything they can get their hands on from whatever their fandom is. They literally must have asked mom and dad for every edition, version, companion book, wand, what have you, for every Christmas and birthday since they were ten years old. And I dig it.
We all like to surround ourselves with stuff we love. So it brings me total fucking JOY to have loved this thing. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, it got a little long-winded at times. Yes, the second half was kind of without any of the major climactic moments I was expecting.
But, you know what? Reading this made me feel like I was Hs story 7 stages of hookup in reading Motorcycle Manwhich was my first KA ever. Did I love it as much as Motorcycle? Is it one of the best KA's I've ever read? Probably won't be for you either.
