THE HOOKUP by Erin McCarthy

* New York Times and USA Today bestselling author!

Tagline: Is there an equation for the perfect hookup? Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than one plus one….


Sophie: Numbers are my comfort zone, which explains why my sex life is a big fat zero. Then again, if I’m smart enough to earn a PhD, why can’t I calculate a way to get a guy into bed, just to see what all the fuss is about? With my prima donna sister, Bella, getting married in Maine, I figure her wedding is the perfect opportunity for my little experiment. And Cain Jordan seems hot enough—he’s certainly drunk enough—to show me what I’ve been missing. Judging by the body of evidence, it’s a lot….

Cain: Being stuck in the same town as my lying SOB twin brother, Christian—who may or may not be the father of the son I’m not allowed to see—is a hell of a reason to drink myself silly after the lobster boat docks each day. Any port in a storm….But Sophie’s different. She doesn’t play around. And she’s becoming a habit I don’t want to break. Because the smartest woman I’ve ever met is also the sexiest—and the only one who makes me want to change.

Praise for Erin McCarthy’s previous work:

The Blurred Lines series:

“The book was fabulous. I loved every single page.” – Fictional Candy

“Erin did an amazing job of making the reader understand what Cat & Heath were feeling! Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!” – Book Reviews by Lexi

“Like I said earlier, it made me feel a range of mixed emotions. I love when a book does this to me. I was anxious to read the next page and wanted to know every little detail to get more out of the characters. It is written beautifully, the characters are portrayed skillfully and the flow of the story was perfect.”

– Bec’s Books

“OMG, the drama, the overreactions, the bad choices. I LOVED it all! You don’t get into You Make Me for an epic love story with lovable characters and a beautiful ending. You get into this book for beyond flawed characters who don’t know what the hell they are doing and just go with their gut.” – Bad Bird Reads

“You Make Me is an emotional rollercoaster and an erotic story about rediscovering your first love. I look forward to reading more books in this series and other books by Erin McCarthy.” – Fresh Fiction

“From the word ‘go,’ I connected with this book on such a deep level that I was so engrossed in the story and so connected to the characters that my heart was aching and my mind whirring away.” – Old Victorian Quill

“I’m really happy to say that I think this is Erin McCarthy’s best work to date: she’s written a stormy, passionate but believable second chance romance with a healthy dose of angst and relatable, level-headed characters.” – Book Vigilante Reviews

“I read this in one day, I couldn't put it down. I was team Heath all the way. He loved her for who she was, and not for the person she was trying to be. She didn't need to wear make-up or fancy clothes, to him she was beautiful just the way she was.” – Michelle Abbott’s Blog

“What a great amazing start to a new series! It immediately made me love the story! This is my first Erin McCarthy book and it isn't my last since I only heard great things about her books. It is full of heartbreak, first love, misunderstandings and the plot pulls you in. McCarthy sets everything up with a tone of love and innocence.” – Stuck in YA Books

“You Make Me was a great NA contemporary….I have enjoyed every Erin McCarthy novel that I’ve read and this was no exception.” – Rampant Readers

“This is not an easy love story where everything is cut and dry. The characters are flawed and their emotions are real. Call me a sucker for punishment, but I appreciate a story that can tear at my heart. This was the first book that I have read by this author and it definitely won’t be the last.” – 2 Book Lovers Reviews

True: True Believers book #1

“A New Adult winner for sure.” – RT Reviews

“I appreciated the chances that this book took. That it presented females in a positive light, represented college experiences fairly authentically, and ended unexpectedly.” – Dear Author

“The romance was hot and I enjoyed the relationship that developed between Tyler and Rory. The story also deals with some hard to deal with social situations, something that adds a lot to the story and are heartbreaking in the process. True is a really great contemporary romance that I did enjoy and would recommend to contemporary romance fans.” – Always YA at Heart, 4 out of 5 hearts

“Rory and Tyler have such a real relationship that they often made my heart ache (in all the very best of ways). I just loved their chemistry.” – Ticket to Anywhere

“True is a sweet, romantic, dynamic coming of age new adult that takes a much needed detour from the usual emotionally draining, overly dramatic offerings that we’ve been inundated with recently. Crisp writing and a smooth flowing story line makes it incredibly easy to become fully invested in this book. Heavily character driven, we are instantly smitten with our hero and heroine from first meeting.”

– Smexy Books

“I am excited to read more from Erin and I hope she writes more NA titles.” – Confessions of a Bookaholic, 5 out of 5 stars

“True is another book in the New Adult genre that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to readers who enjoy their characters to be more on the adult side of teen. It's a true-to-life portrayal of broken families and first loves, and introduces the first couple in Erin McCarthy's True Believers series.” – Wondrous Reads
