The Hook Up
The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.
Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?
Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…
Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she’s shut him down. Completely.
That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It’s a good thing Drew knows all about winning.
All’s fair in love and football…Game on.

It’s always fun to read a college romance! With the romance and school going how characters juggles everything is worth reading it.
The hook up, I came across this book on goodreads as there were many praise I heard and read and wanted to give it a try. And I did give it a try.
Anna Jones, is head strong and sassy female protogonist who give her a mind to Drew Baylor on their first meeting only.
“Hey there, Big Red.”
My world grinds to a loud, screeching halt. Big Red? What the ever-loving knuckle fuck?”
“What did you just call me?”
The corners of his eyes crease in what might be a wince. “Ahh… If I say ‘nothing’, can we move on and pretend it didn’t happen?”
I almost smile at that one, which irritates me further. “No.”
He shifts his weight to his other foot. “Relax, I was only trying—”
“Do not,” I point a finger at him, “tell me to ‘relax’ when you’ve insulted me, bud.”
“Bud?” He makes a strangled sort of half-laugh.
“I’m not ‘big’,” I snap. There’s more hurt in my voice than I’d like to admit. I hate that too.
His head jerks back like I’ve surprised him
Anna Jones was a regular student who thinks she can just blend in with the rest but when Drew Baylor set his eyes on her, she can never blend.
Drew Baylor, is the football star on he campus and like every athletic star he is found to have some reputation. But Drew here has only his eyes for Anna and would take her anyhow she would allow.
I loved Drew to an extent. He was so calm and always patient with Anna. Even when she was being irritational and all not allowing to Drew to kiss on her lips as she considers that being to intimate for their relationship. But Drew being Drew always goes for what she is comfortable with t.
“You shine so brightly, Drew. And it’s beautiful to me, but I didn’t know how to live under your light.”
He frowns, his expression growing fierce. But his words are low, strong. “What peo”
“people see? That is only gloss. But, Anna, you light me up. Drew. Not the player. You didn’t know how to live under my light? I don’t have a light anymore unless you’re there.”
I loved the background and side characters of the book. They all seem to have their own unique stories to identify and create.
This book was a whirlwind of romance where the guy wanted more but the girl was indecisive about their relationship.
“You’ve destroyed me, Anna Jones.”
