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. It was like a hot finger stroking down my spine. My head snapped up. One word was playing a loop in my head: And then every time she sees him her nipples get hard, her thighs clench, gets hot and achy, can't breathe right, her pulse skyrockets And I just can't I refuse to submit myself to pages of this.

I'm not a masochist by any means. View all 53 comments. Life, She insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living.

See a Problem?

One day, Love will creep up and smack you upside the head. 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. 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: 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.

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 View all 60 comments. Apr 22, Hulya Kara Yuksel rated it it was amazing. OMG Why the hell I wait to read this book? Ahhhh I'm so in love with Drew. But also their chemistry was so freaking hot too. I laughed, I cried. My God, this book was pure perfection. You won't regret this, trust me!!! I'm definetly gonna read the other books very soon.

I pull back to look him in the eyes. No one else exists. View all 30 comments. Sep 12, Beverly rated it it was amazing. 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. To her surprise, Drew proved to be anything, but typical and I fell in love with him. This book is super fun, but also had so much heart. I loved that it had both, so few books do. View all 35 comments.

These bloody good NA books are making a liar out of me. I'm pretty sure my profile on Goodreads 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? 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 just assumed that a guy ONLY thinks with his bits and pieces. This book grabbed my attention with characters that have goals and work bloody hard to reach them and feel satisfaction when their hard work pays off. I cringed as soon as I read the words. He certainly picked the wrong girl to say it to. Anna, is not afraid to put Drew in his place when he assumes she'd jump at the chance to be with him.

The Hook Up

After all he is the star quarterback and practically famous. Neither of them can deny their overwhelming attraction to each other, but while Drew is keen, Anna is friggin petrified. Both Anna and Drew have reasons for their eagerness and hesitations. We see their relationship stutter and start from the beginning to the end. Both of them are not as confident as they would have everyone believe. I loved the characters in this story, especially with Anna and Drew's friends playing pivotal roles. There were some deeper issues dealt with that made it seem more realistic.

I also liked the way the author showed Drew's reaction, to someone else's reaction, to being on the receiving end of a 6 ft 4 muscle bound man who's angry. More times than not he cools his jets to make sure they don't feel threatened. Nice to see a football player portrayed with intelligence, control and sensitivity. I'm still not ready to call myself a NA fan, but with this caliber of work, I can't help but be a little keen to try some more.

This was my first book by Kristen Callihan and with that much talent, it will definitely not be my last. To buy The Hook Up from Amazon - http: View all 42 comments.

As a result, woman fawn over him. A life changing meeting with Anna, has him wanting for the first time ever to pursue someone to have something serious. Unfortunately, Anna doesn't have serious on her mind.

She wants him to be a hook up and nothing more. Drew has other plans, and won't give up until he makes Anna his. I really loved him. For a guy that had everything and everyone at his disposal, he was quite down to earth. Sure, at times he could be a bit arrogant but in a very sexy way. I loved the relationship he shared with his teammates. What I loved the most was seeing him try to sway Anna into being in a relationship with him the was more than just sex. He could be so sweet and so caring. He was also very hot, sexy, and alpha. Anna, I kind of liked at first. She has gone through some things that make her quite insecure about why on earth a guy like Drew could want her.

This insecurity is what caused me to not like her so much.

Report Abuse

She was just so stubborn and it frustrated me that she kept trying to keep Drew as arm's length emotionally. Then at the end, I liked her again because I liked that she finally did something good. She challenged and cared Drew when he needed it the most. It was so beautiful watching these too interact, especially during those sweet moments that melted my heart.

I know you wouldn't be because, since the moment I laid eyes on you, you're all I can see. There wasn't any over the top drama that dragged things out.

Get A Copy

There was some angst in this book but it was a good amount. It wasn't all the color of roses as there were some intense moments between the main characters that tugged at my heart strings. I couldn't put this book down because I loved all of those emotional scenes. I really did like this book, and it's definitely one I would recommend you give a read. Especially to those who love the New Adult genre. I can't wait to see what is next in the series. View all 47 comments.

The HookUp

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 it I 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 time And i started it!!!

And i felt rush and excitement and then i started to feel annoyance toward Anna And the annoyance continued because Anna was so damn stubborn and i wanted to shake her up to open her eyes and see the truth that was lying inside her heart But Anna and Drew made it a fuckin' mess and i was with Drew's side Okay that's an understatement because i was almost all the time with Drew's side!!! And God, something bad happened and finally followed something good and i felt relief and almost happiness, but then for first time Drew disappointed me!!!

But after all those shit that i had to get through, everything went good!!! As you can understand those two were so fuckin' messed up, but who isn't??? But i will have to admit that this story was feeling like reality!!! It wasn't something extraordinary that nobody from all of us wouldn't do And i like that!!! Drew and Anna were two normal people with their fears, their insecurities, they ups and their downs, with dark days and beautiful days, with sex and snuggling, with fights and overeacting In many points it reminded me of myself And i liked that it seemed so real I won't tell you much about the story.

Drew was the star of the campus, he liked Anna and he went after her. Anna had her issues, she had a bad opinion of Drew and she didn't want anything more than a hook-up They hooked up but Drew was insisting for more, but Anna wasn't agree. So, they made this deal Anna preffered to refuse her feelings and she even refused her kisses to Drew because this action was too intimate. And Drew fell hard for Anna and he was tiptoying around her from the fear to lose what little she was giving to him.

You think that this deal could be successfull??? Or everything will go to hell??? I can't tell you more That burns the most. As if she needed to relegate me to some random, near faceless fuck I saw a sweet and caring man and i couldn't do anything than sympathize him. He was a very good man. And he had true feelings for Anna.

But she was hurting him with her attitude and i was furious for her behalf. Who wouldn't want a man like him around her??? Not me, for sure!!! I wanted to punch Anna for the insecurity that she was causing him!!! He didn't deserve to get through all those shits that she was throwing to his way. But to be fair, near to the end, he made me mad too!!! He was a little bit irrational, but i forgive him!!! He deserved for once to be the one who was a little bit I have to admit that in the most part of the book, she was irritating me very much.

I know that she was having feelings for Drew from the first moment, but this denial was driving me crazy and it was hurting Drew!!! Yep, at some point i understood her reasons for all this insecurity and attitude but i think that Drew never gave her the opportunity to doubt his feelings. So, she was unfair to him and i didn't like that! They could be so perfect together from the first moment, but she didn't aloud it!!

This is too close to a relationship. She stood by her man's side and she fought for him I really liked how she stood to Drew at their biggest fight. I admired her for that and for some other things before that Drew and Anna were having great chemistry and when they were together everything was smooth and beautiful When they were apart everything was dark and meaningless.

And that's why i was mad with them For the lost time He was funny and a little bit meathead, but i really liked how close he was with Drew and how he was handling all the bullshits that Drew pulled out at him near to the end!!! I can't wait for his turn!!! That was very funny!!! View all 50 comments. Find all of my reviews at: You know what that means, right?

If the alternate cover would have been my option. I probably would have skipped it. Just a note to authors that books are indeed judged by their covers. I really need to buy that book. Alright, enough of that. His reputation proceeds him, she has body issues and whatever that she seriously needs to work out because damn girl high school ended quite some time ago and no one ever bothered you at college until you started banging superstud because DUH jealous hos. However, lucky for us readers they see each other at a party and both have an itch that needs scratching so you know what that means.

And let me tell you, those bathroom sexytimes were H. Of course, this being NA there had to be that little thing that gets in the way called an attempt at a plot. But instead makes me more like this.

I normally try to refrain from NA Romance, because they're mostly Somehow I felt totally sucked into the story and had to abandon all my earthly responsibilities to see how this messy little love story wraps up, anxious to get to the next page.

Anna feels a pull like she has never experienced before. And Anna is not exactly as calm and quiet as she seems, apparently, because she immediately gives Drew a piece of her mind for the ridiculous nickname. What a first impression, right? Anna wants nothing to do with Drew. She is into the emotional and poetic guys, not the popular playboys with cocky grins. He is definitely not good for her, so she tries to avoid Drew like the plague.

But Drew is goddamn stubborn and will not give up till he gets Anna. He is used to girls throwing themselves at his feet, but not Anna. No, she acts like she couldn't care less about him. For the first time in his life, he actually has to work for it. Now that they have tasted from the forbidden fruit, they want more and they will never be able to get enough, it seems.

Anna is terrified though. She has never been the center of attention of any boy before. She was a shadow and a subject of jokes in high school. She was the girl that no one even noticed, except for the times that she was bullied. She doesn't believe that someone like Drew can ever care for her. She has to protect herself. No kissing on the mouth, no staying for the night, no telling anyone and no falling in love. 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.

And I'm screwed because it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. He wants everything with Anna. And he will get it… He just has to be patient and prove to her that he is not the Drew that everyone else sees. He has to prove that he can be the right guy for her. Will Anna be courageous enough to trust Drew and give him her heart in exchange for his?

His tough exterior combined with the interior vulnerability and loneliness just stole my breath away. His determination to persuade Anna, despite her mistakes and bad choices and his heartbreak when he gets rejected, just made my heart melt. His charming ways were the best thing about this book. I want her here forever. I'm twenty-three years old, my carefully built life has just been smashed to pieces, yet I know with complete clarity that I never want to be parted from Anna Jones.

And every time I had to walk away from you, every time you walked away from me, it felt like it was being ripped out of my chest. I didn't exactly like her for most of the book, but that changed once she didn't give up on Drew when he started making huge mistakes because of the stinky mood he was in. She stood up for herself, for Drew, for their love. I adored that about her and she instantly won my heart.

All the guys were adorable and interesting and so much fun! This is a story full of emotion and angst but there is no exaggerated and pointless drama, which makes it perfect and puts it into a separate shelf from other NA Romance books for me. I thought I had lost myself in Drew. But the truth was that I'd found myself in him.

Basic plot - Drew is Mr. Popular Star Quarterback of his college, and Anna catches his eye on their first day of class. They hook up, but Anna tries to keep Drew at a distance for fear of being consumed by her attraction to him and getting her heart broken. I must admit, the beginning of The Hook Up had me feeling a tad iffy.

I am not a fan of insta-love, and can count on one hand the amount of times I have read it and felt it was actually believable or without making me want to roll my eyes. Without a doubt, Drew is what undeniably made this book. I cannot stress enough how much I adored his character. He was everything you could ask for in a hero. I can go on and on. Dialogue is what makes or breaks a book for me. They were so steamy but at the same time so emotionally charged. I Should Note …. By the time we got a deeper look into her insecurities, though, the annoyance waned. And because Drew made it SO obviously clear he adored Anna and was nothing short of amazing it made it hard for me to understand her reluctance.

It would have been easier to sympathize with her more if he was a known jerk or player with a seedy past, but Drew was someone anyone and everyone would pine for. I grew to like her so much more as the book progressed. I also really would have loved more chapters in Drew's POV. I am utterly obsessed with this boy. The story got better and better with each page. View all 26 comments. This game was like my sexual release: I'd play Habbo and Runescape for my nerds.

Jul 12, 3. I use to like playing that game and Slasher. Jul 12, 4. Yaaasss lol I do remember that game. You had to win the arguments and what not. That preppy bitch who was always after you lol. You remember the forums? Cyber sex at its best. Jul 12, 5. Jul 12, 6. It was my version of Sims. Jul 12, 7. I went on there like 1 or 2 years ago to play it again and it was gone: I thought Matthew and Dylan were cute. Jul 12, 8. Jul 12, 9. I used to play this and avatar high. Jul 12, I played that game for hours on end!! I don't remember Slasher. I loved this game! The political setting provided us with some entertaining metaphors to work with -- e.

The game quickly developed a loyal playerbase and earned significant attention including a blurb in the New York Times. THUP's goal was to create a game that captured the excitement and conflict of a new relationship. We wanted to avoid the game becoming a 'choose your own adventuer novel' of dialog trees, so we abstracted the most dramatic moments into an easily accessible card combat game.

As players explore the world of The Hook Up, they gather secrets, rumors, and facts about the characters in town. When a conflict arises -- the player fighting to keep their boyfriend, trying to learn a secret, trying to sabotage a rival -- they use the information they have gathered as 'cards'. The more devastating the secret, the more powerful the card. The Hook Up was a huge success when it launched, creating the largest traffic spike in the history of The N. It remained one of the most popular destinations on their site, and years later we still receive fan mail from players.

For our first multiplayer game for The N we looked to board games for inspiration. We wanted a turn based game that allowed time for users to interact socially and wasn't heavily dependent on the net connection. Players in Trendetta are essentially playing a PR game for their favorite trend. Players place pieces along communication lines representing the internet, TV, and word of mouth. As they claim territory, they build points for their trend.

  • watch online dating.
  • things to know about dating a libra.
  • how to buy dating profiles.

Players take their turns at the same time, bringing urgency to the turn based gameplay. Players can also court celebrity endorsements, cash infusions, and bring down opposing trends with the 'scandal' piece. Each game is tied to a larger metagame -- the more games won for a trend, the higher that trend moves up the charts. O'Grady is a quirky half hour cartoon on Viacom's teen network The N made by the folks who more recently created the hit show Bob's Burgers. In each episode, O'Grady's characters are beset by their town's "Weirdness" Using this anything goes premise, THUP created a casual, addictive action- puzzle game featuring the return ofO'Grady's clones.
