I missed this book when it was in the anthology last year, so it was great to get it and read it now.

And I have to say.... this misunderstanding slash hookup is hot and sweet and also tender and full ov love.

Grant and Easton are 😍🔥🔥🔥

And I am with Easton here with the uniform thingy....

This is a very quick read - I think it took me about half an hour to finish it. But it is also well rounded out that it does not feel rushed to me.

Really, I just adored it.

If you w
Omg! That was one fast-paced hot read. Easton and Grant liked to spice things up with a little adventure and role-playing. Talk about heat! Scorching! For a short read, this book was one fun and dirty read that was filled with a ton of emotion and a whole lot of love. Loved it!

Short and steamy, and so full of love and tenderness, this is a fantastic read. Grant and Easton have an undeniable attraction the moment they set eyes on each other at The Hookup. It's explosive and exciting, but also has that emotional intimacy between them that will have you feeling all gooey inside. Although it's quite short, the writing and emotional exploration between Easton and Grant is enough to give you the complete picture of their relationship, and have you falling in love with them. ...more

Grant Holt was looking for a one-night stand or was he?

Grant Holt was looking for a good time at The Hookup when he was offered a drink by the sexy guy next to him. Attorney Easton Elliott is looking to celebrate with his team after winning a tough case and his eye was on the cute sailor at the bar.

Any story by Kindle Alexander is worth reading and The Hookup may one of the shorter stories but the emotion between Easton and Grant trying to fix their relation by doing a little role playing.

Grant shows up to the Hookup Bar for a night out only to meet a gorgeous blonde man who gives him the offer of a quickie in the bathroom. Easton and Grant have that intense, hot and steamy attraction to each other that can’t be denied. These two men jumped right off the pages and took my mind to a different place totally. But never being let down Kindle Alexander took it to a whole different level. I need more of these men!

I've read this author before. This is a mm contemporary novella set in the USA. A fun, quick read about Easton and Grant. Great twist. Grab it, it will definitely give you a smile. Kindle is an auto buy for me.

The Hookup by Kindle Alexander is the quick and dirty distraction you might be looking for. This sexy m/m romance is about Grant and Easton, who meet at the bar and decide to hook up. It turns out they were more than a one-night stand. The Hookup was previously released in The Bookworm Box's special edition charity anthology, Unconditional, 2019.

If you love this duo then you’re in for a treat. Although this is a quick read it gives you all the feels you’re used to from these two. It’s sweet, sexy with a little twist (no spoiler here)
These two men need a full story (begging eyes) please ❤️

Kindle Alexander always gives us well written, steamy books with characters we always fall in love with, I missed this novella when it was released as part of an anthology and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to read it now.
The Hookup is exactly that, it starts as a casual hookup in a bar and it soon moves on to a loving relationship between Grant and Easton but there’s more, this couple love some role playing and that’s when the fun begins....
This duo write MM so well in fact for me they are

Short and hot.
Grant is dealing with no longer working and not dealing well. sitting at home eating sweets and drinking a lot. He gets an unexpected invitation to meet someone at a bar he hasn't been to in a long time he dons his too tight sailor uniform and heads out.
Easton is at the hookup to celebrate a victory from his law firm when he spots a sexy man in a tight uniform at the bar and they have a quicky in the bathroom. The twist revealed made me sigh it was so sweet.

It all started with a hookup! And from time to time, they indulge in role-playing. Tonight is one of those times.

But life puts roadblocks along the way. Grant lost his thankless job. Grant traveled too much because of that job, Easton doesn’t see him enough. Grant feels useless, stagnant and his insecurities are surfacing.

When Easton reassures Grant that he couldn’t be happier to have him home, and that whatever is troubling Grant, they will face and overcome it, that they are there for each ot

Two smoking hot guys. What's not to love.
Grant dresses in military whites and makes his way to The Hookup bar. He is immediately approached by a gorgeous blond dressed in a suit. Attraction is instantaneous. A hot hookup ensues in the bar bathroom. I highly recommend reading this sizzling short story!

This is not only a short hot little read but also it is a fun read! I’m not going to give anything away but The Hookup is just what I needed right now. A lighthearted, sexy and really cute read. Grab it, it will definitely put a smile on your face.

I was scared to start this as I am a HUGE fan, but I HATE novella's. They usually leave me feeling disappointed and feeling ripped off I didn't get a full story, usually don't connect with the characters and so on...... BUT they nailed this one. So much story packed into a little novella. I connected with both MC's right a way, felt their connection and love how they loved each other. It was a sweet, fun, kinky read that felt complete.

This is a quick and fun read. It took me about an hour to read this and the story didn’t feel rushed. In true Kindle Alexander fashion they have created a compelling story that has you turning the pages and wanting more. Easton and Grant are sexy. The Hookup is sexy. I loved it. ❤️

I was given an ARC in exchange for a honest review.

There’s nothing quite like a short, hot novella from one of my favorite authors with just a touch of angst to put a smile on my face. This is a really quick read—like maybe a half hour to an hour—but it packed enough of a punch in that time to have me loving both Grant and Easton, and wanting to know so much more about them.

It’s hard not to say too much in my review considering the short length of this story. What it all boils down to though is two guys looking for and finding a hot and sexy hoo
Merissa (Archaeolibrarian)
The Hookup is a short story with Grant and Easton. Grant needs some time to play as he has his concerns and worries dragging him down. Easton sees a gorgeous man in navy whites and immediately wants to know him better.

This was a quick read that still manages to give you a great story. I loved the twist halfway through which gave a whole new depth to the read. The attraction between these two is off the charts so be prepared for a steamy read.

If you need some quick loving then I can definitely re

What a fun romp! Kindle Alexander is an automatic read for me, so I clicked on The Hookup without ever even checking out the blurb. While I was surprised to find out what a quick read it is, I wasn't at all surprised about liking the story. It starts out like it's just going to be two strangers hooking up for a quickie, which makes for a fun, entertaining read, but this one does hold some surprises even with the short length. The whole story is easily read in under an hour, and it makes for an e ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Hot lawyer Easton meets equally hot Grant, who had gone to a local bar for a little stress relief. It leads to a deliciously steamy encounter. The Hookup is is a quick, sexy story with a great little twist and was ultimately sweet too which I loved.

I felt the author did a great job of giving us a snapshot of one memorable night and while I would happily read more stories about Easton and Grant, this one was plenty satisfying

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is a short read, but manages to be both super hot, but also incredibly sweet and romantic. It really is the perfect escapism and complement to a glass of wine and comfy chair. I loved the reception that they get after their very hot hookup!

If you have never read a Kindle Alexander story before, I am sure that this gives you a delicious taste of the quality and style of writing. Enjoy!
