About THE HOOKUP
Is there an equation for the perfect hookup? Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than one plus one. . . .
Sophie: Numbers are my comfort zone, which explains why my sex life is a big fat zero. Then again, if I’m smart enough to earn a PhD, why can’t I calculate a way to get a guy into bed, just to see what all the fuss is about? With my prima donna sister, Bella, getting married in Maine, I figure her wedding is the perfect opportunity for my little experiment. And Cain Jordan seems hot enough—he’s certainly drunk enough—to show me what I’ve been missing. Judging by the body of evidence, it’s a lot. . . .
Cain: Being stuck in the same town as my lying SOB twin brother, Christian—who may or may not be the father of the son I’m not allowed to see—is a hell of a reason to drink myself silly after the lobster boat docks each day. Any port in a storm . . . But Sophie’s different. She doesn’t play around. And she’s becoming a habit I don’t want to break. Because the smartest woman I’ve ever met is also the sexiest—and the only one who makes me want to change.

“The alcoholic and the genius, 4 stars”
Cain has issues. He’s a bitter, resentful fool who drowns himself with the bottle and ignoring those who should be close to him. He gets up every day, works hard, then plays harder, only to repeat the next day. When he meets Sophie, he doesn’t really see her until he takes a closer look. She’s the unassuming girl and he had no idea she was about to flip his world.
Sophie is the female version of Sheldon Cooper from BBT. She’s very literal and to the point. She sees Cain for what he is but its hard for her to grasp that maybe he’s the love she’s looking for when she doesn’t believe in it. They balance each other out perfectly and he doesn’t make fun of her for seeing things so black and white. Will they make it to the end?
I really did like Sophie but there were times I wanted to slap Cain for not seeing what was right in front of him. There were things that just didn’t really click for me in the story such as some vague comments about Cain’s twin and Sophie’s sister. Even with that said I do plan on reading the next book in the Jordan series to see where McCarthy takes the siblings and get some long awaited answers.
