Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This is such a cute book! I loved Ellie and Ty. They both wanted something simple, he never wanted to have a relationship with a mother, so he tried to avoid his attraction to Ellie, but he just couldn't. Ellie had such a disastrous divorce that she never wanted a real relationship past a fling again. Things have away of changing. Henry was super cute.

REVIEW PROVIDED BY: Kelly NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2 Another wonderful story from Tawna!! The Hook Up reminds us that love will happen whether you like it or not. Ellie Sanders definitely didn’t want it to happen but that is what happens when you test Fate and Karma all at the same time!! And Tyler. Sweet, sweet, sweet Tyler thinking he was not made for commitment. Love it!! Love seeing how these two tangled up together and then tried hard to unknot themself only to become more entangled :) I think my favorite part of this book is when they first meet. Their first conversation is hilarious!! I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes!! Well done Tawna, well done!! As always I am very much looking forward to the adventure with Tawna!!

Ellie Sanders is looking for a sexy night that doesn't only involve her Madame Butterfly merchandise in Tawna Fenske's The Hook Up. A single mother who runs her own business, Ellie knows what she wants, yet the bumps she's taken in the romance department have her wary of anything more than a casual hook up. Tyler "Ty" Hendrix seems like your typical bad boy with a heart of gold, but I love how he shows how he can be a gentleman--the good kind. From their hilarious first meeting to their happily ever after, I loved reading this romance story. Fenske writes books that hit you right in the feels. They'll make you laugh and cry--in the good way--and The Hook Up was no exception.

I first have to say how much I totally loved Ty. He was amazing throughout the entire book, even when he was wrong. He was such a protector, giver, and understanding. He and Ellie were perfect together. I love stories that grab a hold of your heart and make you say, "Awww!" This one did. This was such a fun and sweet sexy book. I loved it from the very first page and swooned at the end. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

I've loved the previous book in the series and this one was no different. I just gobbled this one right up. One if my favorite things is the humor. I laughed quite a bit and I enjoyed every minute. I liked the interaction between Ty and Ellie's little boy Henry. Henry is a little pistol. One of my other favorite parts is the banter between Ellie and Ty. They have great chemistry. The epilogue was fantastic because learning about Ty's childhood it was just perfect. I liked that characters from the previous books make an appearance. I loving seeing them enjoying their HEAs. I highly recommend this book!

Ty and Ellie have such a funny "meet cute" start in this book. I seriously LOLed. This sexy sweet romance kept me laughing all the way through and fanning myself from the red hot scenes. I really am enjoying this series by Tawana Fenske. Ms Fenske knows how to make you blush from some hot romance one minute and roll around laughing the next. :)

4.5 Stars! Ellie meets Tyler in the middle of a misunderstanding, but right from the start sparks fly between these two. The attraction is so obviously mutual. Tyler is glad to help Ellie. He just never planned on meeting someone who would change his future plans. Now, he is not sure how to live without her or her son. This was my first read by Ms. Fenske, I was happy reading and enjoying such fabulous humor and heat. These characters were a joy to read. And I will definitely be going back to read the rest of this series. Thanks to the publisher and netgalley for allowing me to read this fantastic story!

This was a cute, heartwarming story. It's about growing from a hook up to so much more. Learning you are more than your childhood but what you take from that childhood and put forth as an adult. The characters are fun and quirky. Henry is an awesome little kid anyone would be proud to call their own. Ellie has a great job and spunky personality that makes you want to love her. Ty has a rocky past but has turned into an awesome man, if only he could see it. Well worth the read

3.75 stars--THE HOOK UP is the third installment in Tawna Fenske’s contemporary, adult FIRST IMPRESSIONS erotic, romance series. This is online $ex toy entrepreneur and single parent Ellie Sanders, and videographer Tyler Hendrix’s story line. THE HOOK UP can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous books is revealed where necessary. Ellie is the sister of Jason Sanders, and Tyler is partnered with Miriam Ashley-Sanders (The Hang Up #2). Told from dual third person perspectives (Ellie and Tyler) THE HOOK UP is a romantic comedy of errors wherein Tyler mistakes Ellie for someone else as he offers his assistance with her online company using a myriad of unintended sexual innuendo that jumps over the line pretty fast. From bowling balls to blue balls to condom covered water pipes Tyler’s introduction to Ellie Sanders finds our couple immediately attracted to one another but Tyler’s less than stellar upbringing and Ellie’s disaster of a first marriage finds our couple wanting a friends with benefits only relationship that turns into something more. But Tyler’s past refuses to go away affecting his emotional stability and his relationship with the woman he loves. What ensues is the building romance that falters when Tyler walks away from a potential future with Ellie Sanders. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense THE HOOK UP is a fun read with a little bit of romance, sex, heartbreak and love. Jason and Miriam (The Hang Up) play secondary and supporting characters. We are introduced to Ellie’s son Henry, as well as Tyler’s sister Anna, and their father John. Several minor characters come and go throughout the story line. THE HOOK UP is a sweet, sexy story of romance with a little bit of humor, fun and conflict. The premise is heartwarming; the characters are realistic and encouraging; the romance is passionate. THE HOOK UP is a spirited and spicy-perfect for a lazy summer afternoon on the beach.

The Hook Up (First Impressions) by Tawna Fenske This is single mom Ellie Sanders and Tyler "Ty" Hendrix's story. This is a funny and sexy story of two people that find out they have more in common than you would think. Neither one want a relationship but would consider a hook up. Will this turn into more? A great read for the beach or when you just need a fun escape. Lots of funny and hot situations. FYI, contains mature content.  I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is the 3rd book in the First Impressions series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. In order to avoid spoilers, and have a better grasp of the series, I recommend reading in order. Ellie meets Tyler in the middle of a misunderstanding. Right from the start there are sparks flying between the two of them. The attraction is obviously mutual. Tyler wants to help Ellie. He just thinks she does something else for a living. He never planned on meeting someone who would change his future plans. Now, he is not sure how to live without her. With all the fun I have come to expect from this author, I was happily reading and enjoying the humor and heat. These characters were a joy to read. I think this book fits well in to this very sexy series too. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange by Netgalley and its publisher, for an honest review only.

the third book in tawna fenske's first impressions series, the hook up, pairs up single mom ellie sanders with video producer tyler hendrix. their meet-cute is one of those mix-ups you can see coming from a mile away and yet still manages to be so funny. tyler thinks he's talking to l.e. birmingham owner of a bowling supply store, however he happens to be talking to ellie sanders owner of a sex toy shop. so, you can only imagine how the talking at cross-purposes and sexual innuendo goes with such ripe material. it's funny and sweet. both ellie and tyler are so embarrassed but also drawn to each other. he keeps finding ways to get close to her. and she's happy that he's interested. but wary too, because she has a disinterested ex-husband and co-parent, and she's not really willing to put her heart on the line for someone who won't stick around. tyler isn't sure he knows how to stick around. he has a deadbeat dad and a youth filled with disappointing foster families. after his grandmother passed away no one looked out for him. so how is he supposed to get involved with a single mom of all things? how can he be trusted to be around her kid? he definitely doesn't believe he's got it in him. and ellie doesn't deserve to be someone's tryout for commitment. this romance is sweet and funny and a little bit sexy. tyler, for all his issues, is a good guy. and how he makes ellie and her son happy shows that he's better at the commitment thing than he thinks. **the hook up will publish on july 3, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (lovestruck) in exchange for my honest review.

4.5 STARS! Tawna Fenske never ceases to surprise me. With how the story begins and my preconceived notions, this book had me thinking it was going to be a simple, sexy rom-com. Yet, as I began to read about Ty's internal struggle with his past along with a subsequent visit from aforementioned past, I was hit with all of the emotional "feels." My heart simply broke for him. Along with Ty's past comes Ellie's having to deal with her "dead-beat" ex-husband. Fenske wrote with such clarity and realism that I couldn't help but think she's writing from personal or a close second-hand perspective. Regardless, it made for compelling reading. In true-to-Fenske form, this is a romantic comedy with a dose of real life relationship insecurities that ends with a sigh and smile-inducing finale. Her stories are ALWAYS a pleasure. (I voluntarily read an advanced copy via Netgalley of The Hook Up. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.)

Got my hands on an early copy of the hottest new romantic comedy by @TawnaFenskeBooks. I laughed, I blushed, I may have even sniffled once or twice.

The Hook Up is book three in the First Impressions series by Tawna Fenske. When new partner at the firm First Impressions offers to help single mom Ellie Sanders with a space to have parties for her online sales company, and later to help market her product line, he knows two things. One - she is far too good for him, and two, he'll do anything to help her out so that she'll keep coming back to visit. When Ellie proposes so no-strings-attached fun, Ty is on board from the word go. The only problem is that the connection between them seems much stronger than a casual fling But before they can move on, Ty has to get oer his troubled past and realize he's a far better man than his father ever was. I was so excited to learn that there was going to be a third installment in the First Impressions series, because I enjoyed the first two so much. Ty and Ellie are a fun couple, and Tawna Fenske's humor shines through from their first encounter. But don't let the humor fool you! There's a lot of fire between these two characters, the chemistry is not to be missed. If you haven't read this series yet run (don't walk) to your nearest ap and one click it today!

This story has just the right amount of everything! Sex toys, single parenting (adorable child Henry), and sex on a stick hot guy. Ellie has just the right amount of sassy and sweet. Ty is fighting really hard not to break his rule.....never date a "mom". The characters chemistry is off the charts and quite believable. Loved this book!

The Hook Up is a sweet romance based on interesting preconceived notions & first impressions! Ellie & Ty both had LOL moments, which are always much appreciated. Their characters were well developed and intriguing. I really enjoyed the bowling ball conversation!

This was such a fun read! I loved Ellie, I loved Ty, and I LOVED Ellie + Ty! I started reading this at the airport and continued reading on my flight. I'm not a fan of flying, but I was disappointed when my plane landed because I hadn't finished the book yet. It was sweet, sexy, and funny - everything I know I'm going to get when a pick up a Tawna Fenske book. I was lucky enough to snag an advanced copy of this book to review. I am always delighted to when Tawna has a new release and I'm never disappointed. Love her. Love her books.

I love Tawna Fenske's writing style and her witty banter between her characters. The beginning of this book started out with a HILARIOUS misunderstanding that neither Ty or Ellie got at first. I was getting strange looks while reading this in public. Tawna always has me laughing at loud throughout her books. There was a realness to both Ty and Ellie that I think any reader can relate to. Their story was sweet, tender and sexy and one I couldn't put down! I highly recommend this read! *I submitted a request to the publisher to read and voluntarily review an uncorrected advanced reader's copy of this book*

I LOVED Ty and Ellie and Henry too. I laughed so hard in the first chapter that I cried and had to compose myself before I could continue reading. The chemistry between the characters is electric and jumps off the page. It also helps that the characters are real - they have real life backstories, real life cringe-worthy moments, and real life pain - that makes them feel as if they could be the couple next door or your best friends. The story is tight, moves easily, and has SO MANY laughable moments. I read this book in one sitting, and it was worth ignoring everything in life for a few hours. From bowling balls to leaky pipes to Batman tattoos...this is a must read, especially if you like a hot hero, a strong heroine, and a ton of laughter with your romance.

What a giggle out loud story this proved to be right from the start! This is one of those books where you laugh till you have tears streaming down your face - well, I did, anyway! For example, imagine a handsome hunk giving you tips on how to market 'pleasure toys' . . . . whilst he's actually thinking he's giving you tips on how to market bowling balls!! I had to read excerpts out loud to my husband Get ready for some hilarious accidental sexual innuendos, misunderstandings and laughs  from the very beginning and just keep on happening throughout this brilliant story! The characters are well developed with sufficient angst and turmoil in their past to have a noticeable impact on their attitudes and behaviour in the present. There's also Ellie's son, the delightful Henry, what a sweetheart! If you're looking for a romance with characters who aren't looking for love but find it anyway, one where things don't go smoothly but keep you guessing (and laughing), then look no further - you'll hopefully love escaping into this romantic comedy as much as I did! When you've done that, I recommend you also seriously consider reading the first two books in this brilliant series - 'The Fix Up' and 'The Hang Up' as both are also great reads IMHO. I requested and was lucky enough to receive a copy of this novel from the publishers via NetGalley. I chose to read and honestly review it.

"Maybe something about whether you're a squeezer or a stroker and how that might impact your overall ball handling." Part of the miscommunication when one person is talking about bowling balls and one person is talking about sexual aids. Oops! I do love the way Tawna Fenske tells a tale! I love the humor in this book as much as I love the romance. Ellie & Ty are really a great couple to get to know. The story is fun, with moments of seriousness and a bit of hotness. Overall fun -a great summer read!!

I was provided with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. I loved the first two books in this series (though they don't necessarily need to be read in order), and this third book didn't disappoint. In fact it might be my favorite of the whole series. I found myself laughing out loud enough that my husband kept asking me what was so funny. The dialogue between Ellie and Ty was hilarious. The opening scene with them and a misunderstanding of what Ellie was selling made me snort. I also loved the dynamic between Ty and Ellie's son Henry; who is pretty witty in his own right. The characters are relatable and real. The sexy bits are super sexy and the comedy is spot on. This book is definitely a funny, sexy winner. Fenske nailed it (heh) again. :)

Like all of Fenske's book, this one did not disappoint in humor or heat. Who knew fixing a kitchen sink could be sexy? Ty is a marvelous, badass marshmallow of a hero (totally my type, as that's the kind of guy I married) who wants SO BADLY to be a good guy and believes he's not because Reasons. It's wonderful to see him fall for shero Ellie (sister of hero Jason from Book 2 in this series) and her boy Henry--and screw it all up because he doesn't think he's what's best for them. Very satisfying conclusion. Two thumbs up.
