REVIEW: The Hook Up (Game On #1) by Kristen Callihan **GIVEAWAY**

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

Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely.

That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

All’s fair in love and football…Game on.

New Adult/Contemporary Romance with a HEA - Recommended for readers 17 and older.

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. Recently I was in the need to a NA college romance/Sports Romance, I mean this is one of my go to genres 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 did a few months back when I first cast my eyes on it. I was in the need of a sports romance themed story and BAM here I am blown away by this book. The words and thoughts of these characters were just so mature I honestly was hooked from page one.

Anyway I digress...

Drews Mum once told him that...

Life, She insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living.

"You'll see, Drew. One day, Love will creep up and smack you upside the head. Then you'll understand."

You see Drew is a football player he is the main one, the one everyone wants to see the 'ONE' everyone wants. But hey that doesn't mean he's happy, then one day he see's one girl this girl namely Anna Jones is then ALL he see's but she's a nothing in her eyes, a small fish in a big pond concerning Drew in her eyes. Here we have two people who are moving forward in their lives but not necessarily enjoying what they have cause they have a big whole to fill.

Drew has his team and he's happy he works extremely hard, he trains he plays and he studies but he doesn't drink and he watches out for his boys so when his eyes meet Anna HE WANTS HER FOR HIM.

You know there's that moment when you need and want its definitely the case for Drew the only thing is Anna rebels and may want him back but won't admit it so there are rules and they go like this:

No kissing on the mouth, No staying the night, No telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.

So can Drew break that rule and turn Anna around to his thinking??

Anna Jones doesn't know what she wants to do with her life she's at college and all but the only thing she would like is to be in New York, She lives with her friend and enjoys her little life of contentment studying, working but after a not great break up in her past she doesn't do relationships she doesn't want the feelings that go with it nor has she been out recently that is until her friends get her out where she bumps into Drew and where they start their Hook Up now I'm not going to tell you much more about the story just lets say emotions obviously get involved and its time to take a chance when you just know right??

My Thoughts
Here I am sitting trying the fathom the right words to express how much joy this book gave me, its has the sweet romance and getting to know you feel and then there's the whole I NEED YOU NOW feel, friendship, love and sex its all there, there chemisty was off the charts and majority of this read I was panting in my seat and wondering whats going to happen next I never got bored of it too, really this NA was not inappropriate or unrealistic the maturity of the story gripped me and I was thinking about it throughout the day which to means a good story to me.

I loved how it was a gradual process I say mature again cause this really is a LOVE STORY TO ITS CORE

I was asked yesterday if this story was generic and I suppose yes it is but please don't let that put you off, I enjoyed it for what it is. Don't expect lots of plot twists but if your in the mood then please grab it.

To Sum Up
The author did a great job at building the tension at the beginning and making me smile at the end Job well done Kristen I'll be awaiting for Grays book coming next.....

Read it, that is all.....

5 Drew Baylor can Rock My World Any Day Stars!! 

This is my two cents on this book:
I loved it!! This story satisfied my smut-lovin' & sports romance fix! I had the biggest book hangover when I finished. I'm sooooo looking forward to Gray's story next. JUST READ IT!!
