“I do.” Two little words I’ve always wanted to say...

You know before I turned into a perpetually single, TV-dinner-eating party of one with thirty cats and a worn-out BOB. Wink. Wink.

I’ve swiped left, right, up, down. I’m over it! Now I’m taking matters into my own manicured hands and changing the dating game with my guaranteed to set a date love app.

Owen and Mallory have that type of tension that makes even complete strangers say my god just do it already!! Sadly, they are too busy dodging their feelings like a game of Frogger. Mal wants a forever and Owen is just here for one night. It also doesn’t help that they work together, and their common thread is Austin. This is their story. We caught glimpses of it in Austin and Clovers story and we couldn’t wait to read more.


Mallory works with Hotline Hookup as Owens assistant.

Ahhhh I loved this story!!! I was hoping to see more of the secondary characters from UNlucky in Love (clover’s awesome story) and have been excited for this one.

This story is HILARIOUS! I mean, rolling around the floor with a belly ache kind of laughing. Though... however much I love the characters, CJ drove me nuts. She was funny, don’t get me wrong but she was a bit OTT in places. And Mal could be a total drama queen... but that was just her. Owen is your classic a-hole turn soppy git. He’s

Cary Hart made me laugh out loud and want to find my perfect match in Ring Ready. Mal and Owen will drive you crazy while you fall in love with them. You need to read this book to find out about the closet, donuts, Kramer, the secret and the proposal! Their wonderful friends are also back to entertain us!
Cary always puts in a twist that I’m not expecting and these one or two make my heart explode with happiness. Ring Ready is a funny, engaging story that proves frenemies with benefits can turn

Ring Ready is the second book in the Hotline Hookup Series. It can be read as a stand-alone. I haven’t read the the first book, Unlucky In Love, and I was able to follow along just fine. Ring Ready is a romcom, frenemies to lover, older brother’s best friend and office romance read. I’m pretty sure this is my first time reading Cary Hart .

Mallory is our heroine. She is getting fed up in the dating world. Tried of dating and trying to find someone who isn’t just looking for a hookup. In the mist

Ring Ready was so hilarious, that I'm laughing all over again as I start to type this review up, and really just want everyone to experience it for themselves! The characters were so awesome, though so opposite that to me, made it all the better. Mallory aka Mal, is our heroine who could be a drama queen at times, while Owen was the typical douche bag who only is in it for one night with the opposite sex. She's forever, he's certainly not, as they spent a night together in the past, where it ...more

This was a new author for me. I’ve wanted to read a Cary heart book for some time now. I’ve had a few of her books on my TBR list for a minute now.

I enjoyed watching Owen and Malory aka Mal’s love bloom. They have known each other for a while now, since Owen is Mal’s brothers best friend. They had an intense love hate relationship to say the least. They either were kissing and loving or they were yelling and slapping.

While, i enjoyed the story as a whole, there were parts that just didn’t

Ring Ready is the second book in the Hotline Hookup series and it was funny, frustrating but also sweet and satisfying when they finally admitted their love for each other!!! Owen and Mallory work together. Owen's boss and also best friend is Austin who is also Mallory's brother. Austin's HEA is in the first book. These two, Owen and Mal, were so entertaining with their annoying frustrated banter with each other. These two love to dish it out with each other, never really backing down. But, deep ...more

Omg where do i even begin this book is amazing and as always leaving me wanting more. Mal is trying to prove too herself that she is more of an assistant to her asshole of a boss who she may have hooked up with a few years ago and he completely broke her heart. Owen Decker is a hot shot producer for a big radio show Hotline Hookup and is trying to do everything he can to hold his feeling for Mal in even if it makes her life a living nightmare. When Mal come up with an idea to pitch a new app to ...more

Mallory Montgomery battles Owen Decker at work and personally. The contest to decide who is the winner is a fun one to witness.

I have to admit, as I am sure was the author’s intent, Owen drove me batty in the beginning with his antics and cocky attitude but I warmed up to him. Mal I did like, quickly, she had a great quirky personality, worked hard and aimed high. Together they had a combustible chemistry.

All of the characters are fun, especially CJ. I will

3.5 funny stars!!

This is book two of the “Hotline Hookup” and can be read as a stand alone. But I will say I absolutely adored the first book!

Mal works for her older brother, Austin, at a radio show. She is ready to shine and make this life hers. Problem is one asshat is standing in her way. Her boss, Owen.

Mal and Owen have so much tension but the banter is hilarious!! Mal is like the perfect chick, I just love her. Owen is the sarcastic ass you love to hate. These two are hot together!!

What an entertaining romantic comedy with characters that seem to love to hate! lol
I just loved Mal and her friends, who wouldn't want girlfriends like them, that support each other no matter what??
Mal and Owen clash when they are near each other and when they have to work on a project together, needless to say butting heads happens often. Frustration, sarcasm, witty banter and sizzling tension really made this such a fantastic read!
I love it when a book has lots of fun, lighthearted and snarky

Ring Ready is the second novel in Cary Harts Hotline Hookup series. It can be read as a standalone but you should definitely read in order to get a bit more of this couples back story as we meet them in the previous book.

Mallory and Owen were amazing together, trying to forget a night between them from a few years ago isn't easy when they have to work together and have a combustible chemistry but the snarky banter and antics they

Hilarious, absolutely hilarious. Mallory and Owen hooked up over two years ago and she gave it her all, so did Owen, but he lied. It's been a tumultuous two years and now they have to work together. It's almost cringe worthy what they say and do to each other.

Mal's posse consists of Clover (her future sister-in-law) and CJ, an over the top bestie. There are donuts, Monopoly strategy and cheap properties, glitter and the tri-fold board, coffee, Alice, pizza porn, and of course Kramer! Watch out

Brilliant Hilarious romantic comedy from Cary Hart. Mal moved to the big city to work with her brother and as the assistant to her brother's business partner and best friend, Owen. Owen and Mal have history. History that meant more to Mal than it did to Owen. History that meant a world of pleasure to Mal but nothing more than a one night stand for Owen. Now she is forced to work for him daily fetching coffee!! Mal's big chance to break out of this role comes up and she plans to own this deal and ...more

Cary Hart shows us once again what a funny, funny author she is with this second installment of the Hotline Hookup series.

Mal and Owen hate each other, seriously hate each other but are forced to work together to develop a dating app that could provide the success both have been searching for in their careers. There are many hiccups (and some seriously hot kissing sessions) along the way as these two prove there is a thin line between love and hate.

Great characters, interesting plot twists and a

Ring Ready has all the things I look for in a rom com.
Hilarious shenanigans
Best friends that are hilarious and over the top
An asshole who needs to grovel
Cuteness

All of that and so much more make up Ring Ready. Not only was Mal adorable, she was real. She is tired of living the single life and is done complaining about it. Instead she does something about it. Add in Owen who is a huge asshole, yet a lovable one, and you get two people desperate to stay away from each other yet they can't

This is the second book in this series which can be read as a stand alone. We have Big brothers best friend, Owen and Mallory. We knew something happened between them in the last book when Owen overworked her and fired her.
Now Mal has a plan to find Mr. Right with an app, a plan and ambition. When Owen propositions her to work with him on his idea things get competitive, hilarious and entertainingly romantic.

“My love was unconditional. I loved you through the hate and kissed you through the hurt. “ -Mal

Mal and Owen’s story is frustrating, comical and cute. The two are flawed and lovable. Parts of their story pulled on my heartstrings quite a bit.
There were times I wanted to grab Owen by the ear and smack him upside the head but he’s actually a really good hearted and loyal person. When he reveals his secret my heart melted.
Mal and Owen are perfect for each other. Both are intelligent, quick witted

When Mal and CJ are fighting and get the idea for a new age kinda dating app and Owen tries to take over as usual. When Austin tells them they need to work together and thats when the banter and the back and forth really kicks in. They almost make yah question if its gonna work or not.

A quirky, funny and highly entertaining romantic comedy! Owen was an arrogant, cheeky great looking guy who loved to push Mal's buttons. Mal was his assistant who just also happened to be his best friends little sister... the two had chemistry that was off the charts HOT!! When they are forced to work together on a project at work, their lives become much more interesting and this is where the fun begins. Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a romantic

Loved the way this story flowed. It was easy to read and hard to put down. A very light hearted love story. Lots of laughs and a little sexy time going on. You can feel Owen and Mal’s chemistry while reading. At times you want to pull your hair, I wanted them to just figure it out, but then things would happen and I was cheering them on! I love CJ and can’t wait to read her story next. Her humor is awesome. You’ve wrote another great book Cary Hart!! ...more

I’m absolutely in love with this series. From Clover and Austin to Mal and Owen and I CANNOT wait for CJ, and maybe Monica . These are by far my favorite characters, I love what each lady brings to the table. I can’t even pick a favorite because both these books are super awesome. I love Mal, Owen may be an asshole but damnit he has a good heart. Cary, thank you so much for sticking with this through the hard times and writing such a wonderful story. ...more

Ring Ready: Love the title of the book! Once again Cary Hart has not let her readers down. It was a fun and entertaining story! Wonderful characters that had fun throughout the story! I love the continuation of the series and I love that each one was different in many ways. I liked the suspense throughout the story! That is what keeps the reader enjoying her books. A great job of writing once again.

This one has everything. The cover was gorgeous. There were hilarious moments, especially when CJ was involved! There were sassy characters. There was some major love-hate between Mal & Owen. Kramer...love Kramer! There was sexy food eating, and even sexier other moments, and one girl who desperately tried to be, but wasn't. There were some very sweet moments too. Loved it!
