The Hookup by Erin McCarthy
My rating: 4 Stars
Sophie Bigelow is a math genius but she is socially awkward. One thing she’d really like to change about her life is the fact that she’s a virgin. In Maine for her sister Bella's upcoming nuptials is the perfect time. Bella gives her a makeover and Sophie is ready. At a bar, she spots the one. He is hot. A true manly man.
Cain Jordan is at home – in a bar. He is a man driven by anger, and one who drowns himself in alcohol. Meeting Sophie Jordan is about to change his life. At first, it is her gorgeous sister that fuels his interest. Bella proudly tells him that she is engaged and quickly points out Sophie to him. At first glance she is not his type. That quickly changes. For one, he finds her refreshingly honest. And sexy as all get out.
Of course, they hit it off. Sophie is quite loveable. Cain's anger and frustrations are painfully explained. The amazing sex that they share becomes more than either expected. However, although things evolve at an alarming rate, it is painfully evident that there can be no future. She's a college student at Harvard and he's a lobster fisherman there in Maine. Then there is the fact about Cain's alcoholism.
The Hookup is hot and sexy with a warm ending for Cain and Sophie. Erin McCarthy does leave readers wanting more. What happens to Cain's twin Christian and Bella? Perhaps we'll find out in the next in this series, The Breakup.
