The Hook-Up Experiment
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.
2.Remember to hate him.
3.Prove my brother wrong.
It should be easy.
As the owner of Pick-A-D*ck, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the d*ck pics—except this time, they're required.
My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-D*ck’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.
I disagree. I know it’s possible.
And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.
It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.
In true Emma form, I laughed the entire time. I love when the characters make me laugh out loud, but I love it even more watching them grow.
Peyton and Elliott are one of my new favorite Hart couples. From Peyton and her PAD website to how much she doesn’t want to like Elliott. Watching Peyton grow as an adult in the story was amazing. She learned to love and forgive, but watching her fall in love was my favorite part.
Elliott didn’t want to start dating, so when he found PAD, he was just looking for a hookup. What he wasn’t prepared to find was Peyton. I loved watching Elliott with Brioney, seeing that relationship was amazing. New found love of single dad’s right here! But watching the three of them together? I fell right in love.
I can’t wait for the next book in this duet!
It's always the kids....
Give me a sarcastic heroine and a hero willing to put up with her and you've got a recipe for a great book. Add in a child that literally breathes sunshine into the world and it's like the sherry on top. That book just went from great to freakin amazing. The Hook-Up Experiment had it all. It all started with a bet.....which we all know never leads to anything good. Especially when the bet made is with your brother and you let your supposed best friends pick out the experiment....now it's a possible recipe for disaster.
I loved every word. Every leaf that was turned over and unlocked hurt from the past and uncovered feelings that have always lingered there. Peyton and Sloane were amazing together when they let themselves be. Maybe the way things turned out was for the best all along. It did create Briony after all. The little girl who wants to know the how and why of everything. Sounds like some other kids I know. This little girl breathes sunshine into the world and makes it a brighter place.
Take the heat made between the sheets, the fire that Peyton breathes over learning some things about the past, and the sunshine Briony breathes and this world is on fire. Like all Emma Hart books for me, I couldn't put it down. She always creates a story that I have no problem getting lost in. I can envision every scene crystal clear like I'm living it for myself. Those are the ones that are the best for me.
Smexy, funny and sweet!

I devoured this book.
I did start it the night before, but Daylight Savings happened and the brain did not Spring forward along with the time. But when I sat down and did the “just a peek, maybe a chapter” thing...well, it turned into finishing the book in no time flat (Sorry #workthing) but it was SO good. Laugh out loud funny, swoon worthy ~ in more ways than one, sweet and oh so smexy! It hit all my buttons in just the right way that I didn’t want it to end, but loved how everything played out.
I loved Peyton in The Upside of Being Single and all this book did was make me adore her even more. She has moxie. Plain and simple. This woman owns everything she does. She’s comfortable in her own skin and isn’t afraid to speak her mind, sometimes a little too much. And though she may not want to fall in love, when she does consider someone hers, she gives them her all and I loved seeing that side of her because it just made me adore her more.
Elliott. This man is a good man, and part of it does have to do with being a single parent to a toddler. He’s patient, straightforward and has a huge heart. He also has a bit of Alpha AF in him that comes out to play, which only serves to make even smexier than he already is.
As this is an enemies to lovers romance, things definitely don’t start out on a good note with Peyton and Elliott, but what one cannot deny is the spark that blazes between them when they are together. It’s hot, hands down, HOT! And as they spend more time together, in and out of bed, it’s apparent that they could have something amazing should they take a step back and take the time to truly listen to one another and be honest with themselves.
And then there is Briony. This little girl was EVERYTHING! It’s no secret that I love it when children play an important role in the story because they tend to force adults to show their true selves, and Briony does that when it comes to Elliott and Peyton. But this little girl had me cracking up, cringing and wanting to hug her anytime she was around.
This was such a fun, smexy read that was full of heart but wasn’t as angsty as I thought it would be ~ oh there is some good moments, but nothing crazy and OTT. I loved Mimi, Dom and Peyton’s grandmother and loved seeing how Mellie and Jake are doing, but I am definitely looking forward to Chloe and Dom’s book because after all that went down in this one, that one is gonna be all kinds of interesting!
