REVIEW - The Hookup (Moonlight and Motor Oil #1) by Kristen Ashley

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 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 through his fingers.

But that’s before Johnny realizes Eliza moved to town to escape the danger that’s been swirling around her.

And that’s why Johnny decides to wade in.

That and the fact Eliza 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.

So, I decided my first review of the New Year would be by one of my favorite authors. You may have noticed I skipped the Honey Series because I didn't think I would like it. I was sure this one would be a winner, but sadly not for me. I didn't hate it, I just didn't love it.

The H is the alpha we know and love coming from the mind of KA and the h is not lacking by any means. The chemistry between the two is tangible and the sex is hot. That leaves the's good  okay. There was nothing to hold my interest. I simply kept reading because I was waiting for the ball to drop and/or the action to kick in. To be honest, I did get a little bit of both.......but it was meh. OH NO!! Is one of my fav authors losing her touch?

Okay, KA maybe my expectations are a little high and I need to take it down a notch, but that would mean you would be off my one-click/pre-order list and you wouldn't want that. GET. WITH. THE. PROGRAM. We NEED a growling alpha, suitable female, a story with action and/or drama, hot sex, and HEA. Not too much to ask for, right.
