This review is from: Hooking Up (Kindle Edition)
After suddenly getting dumped by her long time boyfriend, Caitlin decides to take her friends advice and find a "one-night stand". She gets dressed up and heads out to find the man who's going to take her mind off her now broke heart. Caitlin meets Ryan. They end up back at her house, but in the morning her one-night stand isn't going away like she thought. Will he end up with her heart or did she just make a huge mistake by picking up some stranger?

I thought this book was going to be really good, but I was dying for it to be over. Caitlin whined and changed her mind the entire book. One minute she didn't want Ryan then she did then she didn't. The cycle went on almost the entire book. She had been through some emotional issues, but one thing that really irritated me was she was scared of her grandmother and finally got the courage to tell her off, but then wanted to talk to her again. It made no sense. She wasn't the most interesting character and whined a lot.

Then there's Ryan. I thought he was going to be this great, sexy guy, but then he kind of seemed like an unwanted stalker in the beginning and then he turned into Caitlin. He was indecisive and acted pushy and considering his profession, I expect more out of him. He and Caitlin fit together. They were both childish and unsure of how they felt about each other and acted like teenagers who break up and then get back together every other day.

Wasn't one of my favorite books and paying 99 cents was almost too much. I gave it two stars because the author did try to make it interesting. Not one I'd recommend unless you want to read a boring and strange love story.
