#MeetYourNext Enemies to Lovers: The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan #giveaway

Posted on Oct 12, 2020 by in Kristen Callihan | 3 comments

Welcome to our stop on the Meet Your Next Book Heroine tour!
I’m doing a throwback to a book I read 2014.
This book is a fun enemies to lovers story.


I was hooked from the first chapter with this college romance. The Hook Up had the right mix of drama, sexy times and swoony moments. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a college romance because they all seemed to be very similar. But this one reminded me of why I love a well written new adult book.

The Hook Up begins with an opening scene where it seems to be ‘lust-at-first-sight’ but we quickly find out that our heroine, Anna, is a sassy girl who doesn’t take any crap from cocky football players. Drew has been hit by the dumb stick when it comes to Anna. His mother warned him: ’My mother once told me that the most important moment in my life wouldn’t be when I won the National Championship or even the Super Bowl. It would be when I fell in love.’

Well, Drew’s first words to Anna proved his mom’s point:
“Hey there, Big Red.”

I actually laughed when I read that because I knew this boy was in trouble when those words fell out of his mouth. But no fear, Anna, isn’t a pushover girl.
”What did you just call me?”

Poor Drew. Now, he is trying to fix what he said.
”Ahh… If I say ‘nothing’, can we move on and pretend it didn’t happen?”


”Relax, I was only trying –”

”Do not, tell me to ‘relax’ when you’ve insulted me, bud.”


”I’m not big.”

I wasn’t trying to insult you. Believe me, I was referring to the best places.”

Eyes up, asshole.”

”Sorry. I’d like to say it won‘t happen again, but I honestly can’t promise that, Red.”

”Jesus, you’re unbelievable.”

After that interaction, in the first few pages, I knew I was going to love The Hook Up. I was digging the whole vibe of this story.

Drew is a big deal. He’s the QB and the town worships him and his teammates – The Church of College Football. Anna is struggling with not wanting to live in his shadow and also feeling like she doesn’t belong in his world.


I was in heaven reading this story. It was one that I didn’t want to end. Their banter was a lot of fun.
