Wildly successful entrepreneur, Thane Walker is stubbornly set in his ways and adamantly resists the shackles of commitment. He’s seen enough unhappy endings to learn the best way to play is by keeping his men on the payroll.
Levi Silva’s dream of graduating from one of the country’s top medical schools is in his grasp, until news from home changes everything. Now, he’s raising his two teenage brothers and trying to keep everyone’s head above water, emotionally and financially.
When Levi’s new job puts him in Thane’s path, their chemistry explodes, but their fear of being involved in relationships keeps them apart. Unfortunately, despite the intense desire drawing them together, neither man can move forward until they get past their own…Reservations.
Thane Walker, 29, has made a success of his life in business with a string of restaurants and his new venture Reservations, an exclusive club for men, looks set to be just as successful.To say he’s emotionally closed off is an understatement.His parent’s marriage was far from happy and has left Thane not wanting to go anywhere near any kind of relationship.He gets his kicks from escorts, that is until he spots a new waiter working in Reservations and is practically salivating at the sight of Levi in tiny purple briefs and boots…..and yes, I was more than happy with that mental image!

I’ll be there.
Through thick and thin.
Ride or die.
You can count on me.
The promises people make. The vows we take.
Assumptions of the heart.
Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.
Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.
For Grip and Bristol
Love started at the top of the world
On a Ferris wheel under the stars
But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?
It has been a couple of weeks since I have read this one, but I just didn’t know how to put my feelings for this book into words. I still don’t really…
I always try and write my reviews right after I finish a book because I fear I might forget some important details, especially with the number of books I read. I wasn’t worried about that with this book because I will never ever forget this story!
It touched me deeply and it left a huge impression!

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.
Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.
They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.
Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.
When I requested this book, I had no idea that it was part of a series. Now this book can be read as a standalone, but both MC’s are introduced in “Shacking Up”.
Since the heroine, Amalie, plays a very big part in that book, I did something I normally don’t do. I stopped reading this book and started “Shaking Up” first. I have to be honest and say that, reading the first book, made me enjoy “Hooking Up” more.
