Emma Hart ~ The Hook-Up Experiment ~ Blog Tour / Excerpt / Teasers / Review

 

 

 

 

1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.

2.Remember to hate him.

3.Prove my brother wrong.

It should be easy.

It isn’t.

 

As the owner of Pick-A-Dick, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the dick pics—except this time, they’re required.

My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-Dick’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.

I disagree. I know it’s possible.

And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.

It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.

Not to mention packing in the pants department…

 

Three hook-ups.

One outcome.

Right?

“Is she okay with that juice?” Peyton watched her go.

I selected the Blu-ray from the cupboard and shot a smirk her way. “Sorry to break it to you, but you’re getting a juice box.”

“I can live with that.”

I turned away and hit the eject button on the player. “You didn’t have to say yes to her, you know.”

“Of course, I had to. Have you seen those eyes? How do you say no to her, ever?”

“I think of all the times she screams and swings her arms like a tiny terrorist, and it’s pretty easy.” I put the disk in and turned around.

Peyton had one eyebrow raised. “See, now, I’d think that’s reason to say no.”

“It depends on the day. Sometimes it results in her being put to bed to calm down, which means she ends up taking a rare afternoon nap, and I get some peace and quiet.”

“That’s a thing around her? She was talking to me for thirty minutes flat about what I did and didn’t like.”

“Only thirty minutes? Lucky you. She has about three hours of material of that.” I took a seat on the sofa, making sure to leave space between us for Bri. “Did she get started on hedgehogs yet?”

Peyton looked a little confused. “Hedgehogs?”

“YouTube is the devil.”

“That…was quite the jump in subject.”

I laughed as the main menu music hit on the TV. “I’m going to preface this by saying kids are weird.”

“Some get that from their parents.”

I blinked at her for a second. She wasn’t wrong if half these people who had a mini-career opening fucking toys on YouTube were parents.

“There are a bunch of stupid videos on YouTube, and apparently, watching people open toys is thrilling.”

Now, she looked really confused.

“And on one of those she watched, the person had a pet hedgehog who wasn’t having the nonsense of her opening a Hatchimal on camera, so it stole the egg.”

She blinked several times in quick succession. “I have no idea what you just said, and if I’m honest… Please don’t explain it.”

I laughed and hit play on the TV.

“Here’s your dooce-box,” Briony said, handing Peyton two. “And das mine. I can’t do the straws.”

“Oh. Right. Okay.” Peyton looked at the two juices that had been thrust at her.

Smiling, I took one from her. I pulled the straw off the back, out of the tiny plastic slip, and poked it through the foiled hole in the top. “There you go,” I said to Briony. “What do you want for dinner?”

She put the straw in her mouth and pursed her lips as she sucked the juice up. Peyton watched her, lips twitching, as she put her straw in place.

“Pizza!” Briony announced.

Oh no. I’d eaten too much pizza lately.

Was there such a thing as too much pizza?

Maybe if the toppings were changed up…

“Peydon, do you want pizza?” Bri asked, leaning right into her.

“I like pizza,” she replied, smiling sweetly down at her. “What’s your favorite?”

“I like spots and cheese.”

“Spots?”

I coughed on my water. “Pepperoni,” I explained. “They look like spots on the pizza.”

Peyton’s eyes met mine for a minute. Silent laughter shone back at me. That really was toddler logic at its finest.

“You know,” she said, looking down at Peyton. “Spots are my favorite, too!”

Once again, Briony gasped. “Reawy?”

“Really, really. I love spots.”

Oh, Jesus.

It might have been a mistake introducing these two. Not only was my daughter becoming increasingly obsessed with someone who seemed to be a brunette, adult version of her…

No, that was the problem. Peyton was the brunette, adult version of Briony, attitude and all—and if there was anything my daughter didn’t need, it was someone who could teach her a thing or ten about sarcasm.

“I’ll order pizza,” I said, going to stand.

“Oh, you got it last time. I’ll go call them.” Peyton put her juice on the side table and tried to move, but Briony stopped her.

“No. Mimi told me that only gentlemen buy dinner. Princesses sit and look priddy.”

Peyton looked down at her. “Sit and look pretty? I like to buy my own pizza sometimes, and that’s okay.”

Without missing a beat, Briony said, “Princesses sit and look priddy so the mens buying dinner don’t know dat we can kick dere butts.”

 

 

 

My Review:

Another smash hit RomCom by Emma Hart!!

This is the first book in The Experiment Series, and can be read as standalones, we have initially met the main characters in this book in The Upside of Being Single, and would wholeheartedly recommend reading this one, if not first, then at some stage, as it gives you the whole background as to what’s going on, and is Mellie and Jake’s story, not to be missed!!

This book is about Peyton and Elliott.

Peyton runs a hook up dating site, which connects people for a no strings, no relationship type of dating. Her brother co-runs the sister site to this hook up service, and believes you can’t hook up with one person 3 times and not fall in love. Peyton disagrees, and takes the bet, with her friends going through the admissions on her PAD (Pick A D*ck) and finding someone they think she can never fall for – except the guy turns out to be her arch nemesis from high school, who stood her up for prom, Elliott.

This was a fabulous, hilarious, sexy, sweet and charming read!! Emma’s heroines are always fiesty and sassy, Peyton is no exception!! She’s stubborn, sarcastic and fiesty with it, a great friend to her besties – although she want’s to kill them for picking Elliott out for the bet – she’s fun and interesting, and has an awesome job lol!!! Elliott turns out to be even more handsome than she remembers from high school – now all grown up with a chiseled jaw and abs for miles!! With his own brand of sarcasm and wit to match against Peyton, a smile to die for and sexiness to melt over, she’s in real trouble here, especially when she sees how Elliott dotes on his 3 yr old daughter Briony!!

This starts as an enemies to lovers read, but they cannot deny the chemistry still there between them. The more time they spend together, the hotter they get for each other!! But their worlds are so different – Peyton runs her own dating site and has some OCD obsessions about things being clean, tidy and in order. Elliott has his own house where he lives with his 3 yr old daughter, completely messy but very much a family home. There are some laugh out loud moments going on here where her OCD clashes with the family environment lol!! Briony herself obviously plays a massive role in this story, the interaction between her and Elliott and later Peyton is just heartwarming, she’s such a little star – she had me laughing at her antics, she was just adorable.

A great read, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and highly recommend you give it a go!! 5 fab stars.
