    1. 4.5 daisy up your ass stars.Really enjoyed this one.First off, the cover for this book is totally off-putting. This not at all how I imagine Drew to look like. Second off, I usually avoid NA books. Why? Well I am a 48 year old mother of a son who just started university. Don’t want to be reading about that age group. But I do dip in, now and again, especially if I see some trustworthy friends have enjoyed - J*, Alexandra, Lana, being the case here.I know some had issues with Anna - not me. Tak [...]

    2. 4.5 stars The Hook Up is one of those books that has been on my TBR for FOREVER! All my friends loved it, and here I am, picking it up well over a year after it’s release. This, my friends, is a fail moment for me. I seem to be having a lot of those in the book world. Too many books and not enough time I say. My point- if you are a NA fan and are in the same boat as me, READ THIS BOOK! It was swoony, sweet, and sexy. Everything I love in a romance. Anna Jones is a dedicated college student and [...]

      *****4.5 BATTLE BUTT BAYLOR LOVIN' STARS*****BR with Alice, Dee, Sophie, and Stephanie"You shine so brightly, Drew. And it's beautiful to me, but I didn't know how to live under your light.""What people see? That is only gloss. But, Anna, you light me up. I don't have a light anymore unless you're there."Now this is what I call NA at its best!!I'm asking myself why in the hell did I wait so long to read this book??!! I was told that this was similar to "The Deal". Yes, there were a couple simi [...]

    4. Re-read: Continuing my book/life slump re-read extravaganzaRe-read: 5/22/15What a satisfying read! I really enjoyed this one. Drew and Anna were both great characters and I really enjoyed their story. They had a lot of chemistry and a lot of passion. I liked Anna a lot. She was pretty level-headed and didn't act like a dumbass and do dumbass things. And I always consider not hating or being irritated to death by the heroine to be a win.The writing was also very good and you could really tell the [...]

    5. 4.5 StarsLove, when it came for me, did not creep. No, it walked up to me, bold as you please, you know, just in case I wasn't paying attention. It did, however, slap me upside my head.If you're looking for your next NA Romance that's guaranteed to make you swoon, make you sweat, and make you smile, then you have definitely found your next read. Kristen Callihan is a new to me author, but will now be gracing my auto-buy shelf because she weaved a story that technically should have been 'been the [...]

    6. "You'll see Drew. One day, love will creep up and smack you upside the head. Then you'll understand.""Never force something, Drew. A bolt, a pass, a game, whatever. Force it and you'll lose. Patience and persistence is how you win in life. Take your time, look for the solution, and if it doesn't come to you, fall back, reassess, and try again."I was rereading this one to prepare myself for Glamour Gray and got a little ashamed that I haven't written my review earlier because, clearly, I forgot h [...]

    7. HOOK, LINE AND SINKER - I ♥ THIS ONE!I was hooked from the first chapter with this college romance. The Hook Up had the right mix of drama, sexy times and swoony moments. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a college romance because they all seemed to be very similar. But this one reminded me of why I love a well written new adult book. The Hook Up begins with an opening scene where it seems to be ‘lust-at-first-sight’ but we quickly find out that our heroine, Anna, is a sassy girl w [...]

    8. This story is a well done entertaining read. I have read this plot of the hot quarterback falling for the non-Barbie type of girl with issues many times over. However, the author brings her own flare and incorporates great banter and hot sex scenes to the tale. When Anna is hit on in her college classroom by the star quaterback of the school's football team she tries to resist. Finally she caves to Drew's charms and attempts to keep him in a hook up category."If she thinks she can hide behind se [...]

    9. Anna Jones and Drew Baylor meet in history of philosophy class. She has no interest in football; he's the star quarterback. And despite their attraction to each other, Anna uses their differences to keep them apart. Until the hook up. Drew is a god. Anna is a late-bloomer. Ignored during her high school years, she still carries baggage with her despite developing from ugly duckling to (almost) swan. Still curvy, she's no longer the awkward chubster with frizzy red hair and braces. I'm not a fan [...]

    10. 4.5--It Was Never Just a Hook Up--Stars!!This book! Gah! It made me feel so much! Butterflies, angst, fear, love, hope, pain! I loved every minute of Anna and Drew's love story. The good, the bad and the ugly!!! Anna:The girl who holds on to the insecurities of her pastDrew: The larger than life football starA love story that starts as a hook-up because the girl can't ever imagine that the boy would choose her. "I don’t just see Drew. I see the star too. And I’m just Anna. I don’t like the [...]

    11. 5 STARSABSOLUTELY LOVED IT----just ignore the cover! It's NOTHING like how the hero is!I have a tumultuous relationship with NA. I was about to avoid it completely with it's overdone tropes and over-the-top drama. But then I read this book and it changed my perspective completely because sometimesmetimes you read something so wonderful it reaffirms your faith in an otherwise tired sub genre. I won't explain what this book is about, just read the synopsis. But I will get into why I loved this so [...]

    12. Title:The Hook UpSeries:Game On #1Author:Kristen CallihanRelease date:September 8, 2014Rating:4.5 starsCliffhanger:No HEA:(view spoiler)[Yes(hide spoiler)]This is not a debut author, but she's new to me. Although she's written several books, they are in the historical/paranormal/steampunk genres and I don't dabble much in those. This is her first attempt at New Adult and I have to say, I was completely impressed with this book. The writing was fantastic. It was emotional, it was funny, it was gr [...]

    13. 4.5 Battle Butt Baylor stars"You've destroyed me, Anna Jones." Anna is a regular girl who doesn't know what she wants to do in her life. She is in college now, trying to stay as unnoticed as possible, but this seems impossible, especially when the quarterback from the football team, Drew Baylor, sets his eyes on her. Drew may be a local star, but he's not the guy everyone thinks he is. How is he going to make Anna see that, when she's so stubborn and wants nothing from him? Especially after thei [...]

    14. 5 Blow me Away Stars***** Wow just wow, I read a lot of erotica and to be honest its not always out of choice but you know I kind of end up falling into those reads which I love but recently I was in the need to a NA college romance/Sports Romance I mean this is one of my go to reads when I want to go back to college to remember KWIM?? I'm a 34 wife/mum so its not something I read all the time just occasionally saying that, please don't judge this book by its cover which I kind of of did a few m [...]

    16. Perfectly sweet, perfectly sexy and perfectly addictive!Drew Baylor is the star quarterback on a winning football team. I am from the South where footballs king, so I totally understood the allure of Drew. The star football player on a winning football team is everything here, and Battle Baylor is everything there too.Naturally Anna assumes Drew is just like every other jock, perhaps even worse since he is the star quarterback. Anna decides her and Drew can hook up, but she won’t offer him any [...]

    17. 4%This is a new low for meInsta-love of EPIC PROPORTIONSAnna:The second our gazes connect, hot tingles zap through me, making my breath catch and my nipples harden. The sensation is so unnerving that I can only sit there, my hand fluttering to my chest where my heart struggles to break free() Stranger still, it feels as if I know him, have known him for years.Drew:“Anna Jones.” Just her name. That was all she’d said. It was like a hot finger stroking down my spine. My head snapped up. And [...]

    18. These bloody good NA books are making a liar out of me.I'm pretty sure my profile on says something along the lines of - NA are not for me. The Hook Up proved me wrong. I AM into books that suck me in, make me laugh, blush, cry and grumble, teach me something (how's that headache Sparkles?) and leaves me with a big smile on my face. New Adult books seem to have turned a corner. We are not bombarded with chicks who lose their mental capacity because they want a certain blokes attention. It's not [...]

    20. I am going all in on this one***** 5 Seductive Lip Bites *****Because this book gave me ALL. THE. FEELS. All of them. I know, I know C'mon, Angie get your shit together!When a book can run me from one end of the emotional scale to the other and actually make me feel the characters emotions, well it's a 5 star read for me. Stellar writing with great attention to detail, well fleshed out and relatable characters, an emotional journey, and steaminess as well I loved it! Can't wait to read more from [...]

    21. ***4 "Big Red" stars for Baylor and Jones***I really don't know how to start this review I feel i'm in loss of pretty words and it's difficult for me to describe the situation that Drew and Anna caught themselves up!!This was a very nice story that made me pass from many stages while i was reading itI had heard so many good words about this book and i wanted so badly to read it, but at the same time something was holding me back and then one day i decided that it was about timeAnd i started it!! [...]

    22. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/Drew Baylor is the star quarterback for the football team who has a reputation for being a player both on and off the field. Anna Jones is a curvy girl-next-door type who has zero interest being another notch on Baylor’s bedpost. You know what that means, right?I noticed Mrs. Joseph reading another book in this series and it peaked my interest because of . . . Mmmmmmmm, beard. Unfortunately the porny liburry did not have that one available on Kindle so [...]

    23. 3.5 starsMeh. Typical angsty NA . . . but not so angsty that I got fed up with it, so I count it a win.

    24. ** 5++ "My world lives in your palm, Anna" STARS **"You've destroyed me, Anna Jones."~ DREWSuch a beautiful storyGOD, I'm so glad I picked this one up after resisting it for so damn long. Once again, I am reminded of the stupidity of prejudice. I normally try to refrain from NA Romance, because they're mostlywell, the same sh*t with slight subject differences.But this one was GOLDEN. Somehow I felt totally sucked into the story and had to abandon all my earthly responsibilities to see how this m [...]

    25. In a world of stories with predictable plot twists, characters with haunted pasts, and unnecessary shock value thrown in for good measure, I personally have found it SO HARD to find a light read that isn’t beyond cheesy or just….well, boring.So when one comes along with one of the most fantastic heroes I have read about, I want to scream “YES FINALLY!!!!!” from the top of my lungs.Basic plot - Drew is Mr. Popular Star Quarterback of his college, and Anna catches his eye on their first da [...]

    26. “I’ve just experienced the hottest, most erotic, life-changing sex of my life, and I don’t think I’m going to get a repeat. Tonight was obviously an ill-advised hook up for her. And I’m so screwed because it was the best thing that has ever happened to me.”I think I’m too old for college-themed stories. Or at least I like to tell myself that I am. The truth is that they rarely have the emotional complexity and substance that I now, as someone who is no longer of college age, seek i [...]

    27. 4.5 StarsI really enjoyed this one. I loved Drew and his ability to be one of the best collegiate athletes in the country and still retain a douche free existence. Anna was all kinds of awesome and, even though she did not go willingly into this relationship and that fact tired the fuck out of me, I loved her snark. I also more than loved the sexual tension between these two, even when they were actually getting it on. The chemistry between them was palpable and I loved every minute of it. I can [...]

    28. The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.

    29. 4.5 MORE THAN A HOOKUP STARS! ★★★★☆"My mother once told me that the most important moment in my life wouldn't be when I won the National Championship or even the Super Bowl. It would be when I fell in love."Before going in, I thought this was gonna be another college romance story of the quarterback star falling in love with the awkward out-of-place girl. And then there's the hookup rules:"The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No [...]
