      Wonderful! If you're looking for a beach read this summer then `Hooking Up' is your book. I laughed out loud, fell a little bit in love and almost cried in parts! Best bit in the book for me was the awkward seduction. I won't spoil, but will say I laughed, cringed and actually covered my eyes at one point! When a book has me doing that, then it's hit the mark perfectly! Bravo!

      This was so far from what I expected that I can't judge it objectively.Judging by the cover and the small synopsis, I gathered this was a fun romance, about a man and woman having a one night stand, and then the hero coming back for more. Well, that was right on spot, but what happens after that first night and his requests for more? Turns out the heroine is not willing at all, and to be honest, she was right to refuse him since she wasn't in a good state for a relationship at that point. She ha [...]

    4. Jessica's Book Review says:

      Read more reviews on my blog | Like me on FacebookHooking Up was a FREE ebook on and decided to give it a try. I actually read the entire book which I hardly do with free ebooks, because let's be honest it's free for a reason, right?The plot starts off simply, Catie has been dumped by her boyfriend of 10 years, Michael out of the blue. She is in search of a one night stand and has her eyes set on a hottie in a bar. The hottie turns out to be Ryan, a police officer (yummy) who wants more with Ca [...]

      I would say this is a 3.5 stars!!!!I don't really know what to say about this book. I did enjoy it but I felt it was missing something. Maybe it had to do with the length of the book. I find with shorter reads things are cut out that would be beneficial to the story. It made me feel like the story was rushed. I do have to say that the heroine in this book Catie/Caitlin was a bit annoying and frustrating in the beginning. She did eventually grow on me as she discovered herself and what she wanted [...]

      Omg I am so sad I wasted a perfectly good reading day on this book! The cover and blurb totally fooled me!!! And I'm the dumbass that didn't even realize it til it was too late! See, I have this thing where unless the book is just complete shit, I will finish it no matter how bad the headache I got from rolling my eyes too much is! So I finished it. While the idea of this story sounded great, it seriously fell short! I would like to pre-apologize for anyone who wants to read this because from th [...]

      It’s always a little hard on an author releasing a second novel especially when the first one “How to Meet A Guy at The Supermarket was so very well received.I admit to being a fan of Ms Degarmo after her first novel, and was looking forward to reading “Hooking Up.” I am delighted with what this new novel had to offer.Some characters in romance genre seem so one dimensional, Jessica Degarmo’s new female character of Caitlin is far more clearly defined in my opinion than ‘Quinn’ w [...]

    8. Selena says:

      I enjoyed this book very much. The title piqued my interest and once I dived into it, I couldn't stop reading it. It wasn't erotica like the title kind of implied, it was about a women who just got out of a long term relationship trying to discover herself, and getting mixed up with a cop who wants something more with her. I really related to the characters and I almost felt like the author was writing about my life (with exaggeration, of course). I completely related to Caitlin's character and [...]

      I really enjoyed "Hooking Up" such a cute read with a great plot.

    10. Mitsy says:

      Caitlin's boyfriend has just ended their ten year relationship, and her friend suggests she "hook up". That is the beginning of a series of revelations. Caitlin is not your average woman. She's been with the same man since high school. She has a steady career she loves. She has two best friends who are great women themselves. Yet for all she has going for her, Caitlin still has deep insecurities that lead her to "hook up" with Ryan. From there we learn of two characters who have issues. For all [...]

      Caitlin and her friends are out drinking when one of them suggests that she get over the breakup with her boyfriend of 10 years by hooking up with a stranger for a one night stand. She knows that it is not in her personality to have a one night stand so she just lets the idea go. But the idea is stuck in her head somewhere and one night she was feeling restless and full of courage so she decides to give it a try. But there is a problem with her one night stand man. He wants more and he doesn't s [...]

    12. ReadAlong With Sue says:

      I have just had to rate this 5 stars, if I could rate this more, I would. Hooking Up had me hook line and sinker throughout. I've not read one of Jessica L Degarmo's books before, it was a treat when she offered it to me as a gift for an honest review. I didn't know what I would find. What I found was a very realistic story that endeared me to each character in the story. I can utter WOW, WOW wow wow.I was gripped so much I had the Kindle in my hand sat at the table while waiting for tea to cook [...]

    13. Whitney (Shooting Stars Reviews) says:

      This book is about Caitlin just losing her boyfriend of ten years. She's having some major life issues, and trying to figure out what to do with herself. She ends up taking a friends advice to have a "hook up." But things go wrong when the guy keeps coming back. He actually wants to try to have a relationship with her. But he has some issues of his own. He is recently divorced with a 6 year old little boy. And an ex-wife who wants to make him miserable. A lot of this book is a romance. But it wa [...]

      Caitlin Edison has been dumped by her first and only boyfriend after more then ten years of being/living/surviving together.I liked that she stays single for a while before trying out a one-night-stand. She is pretty stupid about safety in that sort of situation, but she gets lucky and ends up with the one super nice guy that is looking for a long term relationship.Caitlin is a basket-case. She is crazy and needy but a great caring friend and she is lucky to surrounded by loyal and loving friend [...]

    15. Sara says:

      This was a light, fun, cute kinda book. I quite enjoyed it for most of the book. Got a little cheesey towards the end but nevertheless enjoyed it. Really liked both Cait and Ryan. It would figure the one guy she approached wasn't looking for a one time. How he gets her attention is hilarious. It's what he does for a living, a little abuse of power ;). Anyway, he's a great character, and even though she's getting over her break up, she's aware she's in no position be someone's girlfriend again. S [...]

    16. Lindy Dale says:

      Having read the title and blurb, I was expecting a chick lit novel when I first started reading Hooking Up. We're given the character of Caitlin and her two friends, the virgin and the stripper. There's a few typical chick lit utterances and resemblances which I liked - especially the little thoughts in Caitlin's head. Then along comes Ryan and suddenly, the story changes. In fact, the whole style changes. It moves to something deeper, dealing with far deeper issues than a one night stand and it [...]

    17. Andrea Baker says:

      I have to admit, I've come to this book pretty late. I'd read "Blood Lust"Blood Lust, so when I saw the new book "Holding On" was released, I went back to read Hooking Up, as it is the first in this story.It is a fun, somewhat poignant romance. Caitlin is reeling from the ending of a ten year relationship, and to help her "snap out of it", one of her closest, if somewhat naïve, friends suggests she "hook up" with someone.At first Caitlin ignores the suggestion, but in a fit of desperation follo [...]

    18. Kimberly says:

      This was my first book by Degarmo, and I adored it! Degarmo does a very nice job of establishing characters that are both real and likeable. She is great at making you feel the emotions right along with the characters. The book centers around Caitlin and the ups and downs life hands her (as we all know how that happens to us too.) You find yourself wanting her to get a HEA, just like all of us want ours. But Degarmo keeps it real and doesn't try to wrap it up in a pretty little bow. Hooking up s [...]

      I found this book for free on , & it did not disappoint. It was a really great book. So, Caitlin is a 28 yr old Pediatrics Physical Therapist who's been in a relationship w/her boyfriend Michael for 10 years. Michael is also her bestfriend & high school sweetheart, they grew up living next door to each other. He's been with her through basically everything, including the death of her parents. Then one day he decides he want out. He feels as though their relationship it just now one of co [...]

    20. Lynda Kelly says:

      I really enjoyed this story. It's a quick, easy, enjoyable read. Bit of a girly book, I'd say, as it has a romance running through it, with just an interesting back story of how Caitlin and Ryan first meet and get together and all their trials and tribulations. It seemed shorter than 200+ pages !I did get a little frustrated at Caitlin at times as she clearly didn't know when she was onto a good thing but her attitude improved as we went along. There were also a few really funny moments in it. I [...]

    21. Philomena Callan Cheekypee says:

      What a lovely story this was. The main character was badly hurt in the past but through this story she has learnt to deal with it & move on. Loved the rest of the characters except for the grandmother. Of course your going to have to read this lovely story to find out why:)This is certainly a book I'd re read although I won't be doing that just yet as I'm about to start the second book in this series, Holding on.This is the first book I've read from this author & I'm definetly looking fo [...]

    22. Downward dog says:

      I enjoyed this book and read it one evening. Caitlin is dumped by her live in boyfriend and is having a hard time dealing with it. One of her girlfriends suggests she try a hook up. Caitlin know it's bad advice, but out of desperation try's it anyway. She sees Ryan at a bar and hooks up with him. Things don't work out the way Caitlin expects them to and Ryan has his own issues he is dealing with.

    23. Aleta says:

      This storyline was an unexpected surprise for me. Based on the cover and title, I was expecting a much more light hearted and fun book. This was a sweet, funny, infuriating story of self discovery and personal growth, laced with heartache and love. I laughed and cried with Catie and Ryan and enjoyed every second of this very quick read. I got this kindle version for only .99 so it was certainly money well spent.

    24. Lariza says:

      Such a great read!! Ryan was swoon worthy!! Catie was neurotic to say the least!! It was so funny how she tried to get rid of Ryan! She ended up having a one night stand or so she thought we the one guy that didn't want that!! Michael was a douche bag and Nancy was such a shrew. I really enjoyed reading this story!

    25. Mary Joy says:

      This novel is really great very touching inspiring!:D This story is really good for those who find themselves falling face down on the ground and needing to pull themselves back up. This story is so refreshing. I still can imagine the characters playing the story in my mind even after I read it!

    26. Morgan Sanchez says:

      This book had the perfect amount of love, loss, heart ache, and lust to be a wonderful story. There were so many things that I was surprised about, but I knew that the one night stand would end with a happy ever after.

    27. Amy Sperry says:

      This book really struck home with me. This type of breakup really breaks a person down back to their core. I liked how the main characters had emotional baggage to work through before they had their happily ever after.

    28. Heather Husler says:

      I decided to download this book as it was free.I am glad I did as I couldn't put it down.It is really well written I think and it not too long. (I finished this in a couple of days with is good for me).

    29. Janelle says:

      Great book. Very interesting happenings for a 'one night stand' that ended up NOT a 'one night stand'. She definitely bares all of her emotions and really sucks you in as we have all been in a situation where we have lost someone special and close to us.

    30. Leanne Crabtree says:

      3.5 stars. When i downloaded this i was expectinng it to be a simple, quick romance but was surprised to find it wasn't. I'll admit i was a bit bored in the first 10% of the book but then she met Ryan and it became interesting and a rollercoaster of emotion.
