Audiobook Review: The Hookup by Kristen Ashley

The Hookup
(The Moonlight & Motor Oil Series, Bk 1)
by Kristen Ashley 
Narrated by Lance Greenfield & Stella Bloom

When the new girl in town, Eliza "Izzy" Forrester, decides to hit the local drinking hole, she's not ready to meet the town's good, solid guy. She's definitely not prepared to engage in her very first hookup with him.

Then Izzy wakes up the next morning in Johnny Gamble's bed, and good girl Izzy finds she likes being bad for Johnny.

Even so, Izzy feels Johnny holding her at arm's length. But Johnny makes it clear he wants more, and Izzy already knows she wants as much as she can get of hot-in-bed, sweet-out-of-it Johnny Gamble.

Floating on air, thinking this is going somewhere, Izzy quickly learns why Johnny holds distant.

He's in love with someone else. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken. Whoever was up next would be runner-up, second best. Knowing the stakes, Izzy will take what she can get from the gentleman that's Johnny Gamble. And even knowing his heart might never mend, Johnny can't seem to stay away from Izzy.

Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. He's not going back, but Johnny still knows the right thing to do is let Izzy go.

And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips though his fingers.

But that's before Johnny realizes Izzy moved to town to escape danger that's been swirling around her.

And that's why Johnny decides to wade in.

That and the fact Izzy Forrester makes breakfast with a canary singing on her shoulder and fills out tight dresses in a way Johnny Gamble cannot get out of his head.

Viviana's Review: 

Holy Moly! This was such a great listen! The story is sweet and romantic and has enough steaminess when needed. As I was listening I seriously thought that if there was ever a possibility that there was a power to create men I'd give that power to Kristen. Johnny is sweet, romantic, alpha.... and oh so yummy!! 

The story is filled with great characters and I'm so looking forward to see what comes! Both the heroine and hero are smart, kind and have a great circle of individuals (both family and friends) surrounding them. 

I will say that the blurb is a tad bit misleading but what does transpire is awesome! This is one of those stories where you feel like you're catching up with friends. 

Narrators review: 
The first time I heard Lance was in Kristen's COMPLICATED and I immediately fell for his performance. I've had the opportunity to listen to a few other of his narrations and loved them all! When I learned that he was going to be narrating Kristen's THE HOOKUP there was a "squeeeeeee" involved! Similar to Lance, I first listened to Stella in one of Kristen's book from the UNFINISHED HEROES series! She rocked those titles and she rocked THE HOOKUP!

Lance and Stella bring to life not only the main characters but also all of the characters. Providing each character with their own tones and tones.

Overall, this was a great story with little drama/angst. You'll want each of the characters to be your friend! I'm so looking forward to the next installment!

Rating: 4.5 Stars - LOVED IT ALOT  - Couldn't put it down! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Audible in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
