Meet me @ The Hookup?
A well-deserved celebration is in order for attorney Easton Elliott. Everything is going as planned until a tempting glimpse of the past sidebars the handsome attorney’s party.
An unexpected invitation has linguist Grant Holt excited about the spur-of-the-moment rendezvous. But words are futile when he arrives to find there’s been a mix-up.
A text, a celebration, and a misunderstanding all lead to…The Hookup
“Home from deployment?”
Grant froze at the words. The sexy rumble of the man’s voice oozed with promise. The raw invitation in those three words had Grant immediately interested as he considered the question. Slowly, not wanting to appear too eager, he lifted his gaze and turned his head toward the alluring voice. Grant’s reply tangled in his throat as he was met with the most beautiful amber eyes he’d ever seen. Mesmerizing in color and flaked with gold and full of heated intensity, they held him hostage far longer than he’d intended. The guy stood close, closer than most would deem appropriate for new acquaintances.
The man’s presence claimed all of Grant’s personal space and everything Grant had been stewing over was instantly forgotten. The exact reason he had liked this bar so much came back in a sudden rush of explosive lust. He opened his mouth to speak, but nothing came out.
“Here you go. You want something?” The bartender asked the man as he set Grant’s drink on the napkin.Thank God for the bartender’s interruption or Grant would have made an idiot of himself for sure. He tore his gaze from the sexy newcomer and reached for the alcohol—a little bit of liquid courage to help swallow the lump of words caught in his throat. He downed confidence-building gulps until the ice clanked against his teeth.
“Yeah. I’ll have what he’s having. Make it two. Looks like he needs another. I’ll start a tab. Add his drinks to mine.” With the credit card handed over and the bartender departed, the sexy man’s gaze moved back to him. Grant was again held captive by the intense stare as the man bent closer to him, so close the guy’s scent had him wanting to bury his face in the crook of his neck and draw more of the tantalizing aroma into his lungs. Grant’s heart sped up as the newcomer casually rested his forearm on the edge of the bar, angling his body toward Grant.
4 out of 5 (very good)
The Hookup is a short story with Grant and Easton. Grant needs some time to play as he has his concerns and worries dragging him down. Easton sees a gorgeous man in navy whites and immediately wants to know him better.
This was a quick read that still manages to give you a great story. I loved the twist halfway through which gave a whole new depth to the read. The attraction between these two is off the charts so be prepared for a steamy read.
If you need some quick loving then I can definitely recommend this book.

Usually I try for funny. Humor is an important part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes can be a tricky deal. I don’t want to offend anyone, and humor tends to offend. So instead, I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen-year-old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been home. It was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you imagine times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have her ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon announced their brand new e-reader. She had no idea the Kindle was coming and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it…Never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event, I was lucky enough to know my writing partner. I would have never gotten through those dark days without her unwavering support and guidance. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. For the first time, I used the hand offered. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her. It takes a special person to stand beside someone at a time like that. I will love her forever. I could go on and on about the both of them, but I won’t and now you know a little more About Us.
