Hooking upBlurb: 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.

So the beginning of this book kinda threw me.  It’s very unlike the first one, even though you don’t need to read them in order as they are not really a series, I feel reading the first one would be beneficial. I totally get why Amalie did what she did after finding out the husband was unfaithful.  I would probably have found the closest male and tried to jump his bones too.  But I would not have felt guilt about it after.  🙂

I felt the beginning of this book moved too fast for me.  The cheating and then diving into a sexual relationship just doesn’t jive with me for some reason.  Everyone knows that the first sexual relationship you get int o after a break up is a rebound! Those are the rules!! LOL, okay I may be holding on to tight to that.

Armstrong’s methods for attempting to win her back were childish and a bit ridiculous.  Trying to scare her into getting back with him because of her families status?  That’s quite frankly laughable.  I guess that might work if you were super famous or rich.  But while they may have lived comfortably it was in no way inferred that they were either of those things.  So really, who cares what others think right? And it took forever for the divorce to happen.  I mean, if its contested it can take about 6 months but not like super long after that, I would have expected Amalie to be smarted that that and just pull the infidelity card from gate. But she isn’t your normal character.

Maybe I couldn’t get my head into a believable space for the little things in this book but lucky for me the sex and chemistry made up for it….in spades!  If you are looking for a emotionally charged sex fest, this is the book for you.

I received this book fro Netgalley for an honest/unbiased opinion.
