Blog Tour - The Hookup List By Dakota Madison {Review & Giveaway}

The Hookup List
Author: Dakota Madison
Release Date: January 19th,2014
Publisher: Time Books


THE FRESHMAN: Ana Alves came to college for one reason--to be the first person in her immigrant family to earn a degree. She doesn't want anything to derail her from her pre-med studies, especially a guy.

HER ROOMMATE: Nicki Payne is ready to party and she doesn't waste any time hooking up with a guy in a frat house bathroom. Her motto: College is a time to be young, wild and free.

A GUY: Christopher Knight is the easy-going English major with a sexy smile and killer body who sits next to Ana in her Shakespeare class. Ana finds Christopher intriguing. She just doesn't want to admit that she's falling for him.

THE HOOKUP LIST: A list of freshman girls who are ready for action that's circulated to the freshman guys via a weekly Listserv. When Nicki Payne is one of the first girls featured on The Hookup List, guys start knocking on her dorm door at all hours of the day and night looking to score...

But what happens when one of those guys is Christopher?


My Review

Ana starts college and leaves her boyfriend behind,but they're gonna make it work.And then she meets Christopher.The attraction they feel for each other is immediate and it's kinda like love at first sight.Will Ana risk losing her boyfriend and give Christopher a chance?Or will she keep fighting the obvious attraction that connects them?

I really liked The Hookup List and found the idea to be really interesting.I really enjoyed the beginning and even though I'm not a big fan of instant attraction/love stories,this one was the exception.I think the author did a great job of describing the characters' emotions and threw in enough drama to make everything work.I really liked the writing and the concept in general.The story was realistic,believable and I could easily imagine the characters in my head and pretend that everything was real.Moreover,I think that the author really succeeded in describing how college life is like and the emotions and challenges that come with it.

I loved Ana as a character.She was different,she was strong and she stayed true to her self.She's trying to fight the attraction between her and Christopher in order to save her relationship but she can't keep fighting for long.And Christopher really surprised me.He wasn't the player I was expecting.He's been through a lot when it comes to love but that doesn't stop him from falling for Ana.He's willing to do anything to keep her by his side and I would describe him as someone who gives everything to those he loves.

"Ana was the girl you fell in love with for a lifetime." 

All of the characters were likeable and reading about their lives was really enjoyable.The story was told from both the main characters' perspectives and was well written.It had a plot twist that I didn't expect but was satisfied with.
Overall,The Hookup List was a quick,fan read which fans of NA will undoubtedly enjoy.Can't wait to check out more of the author's work.

  4. Whether you want someone that you can commit to or just a hookup date, it is important to make sure that you make a killer dating profile that attracts people you probably think would never give you the time of day. What you say in the first message is very important since the other person will start judging you from that. Be sure to include latest pictures that show how you look like. Be sure to also state clearly what you are looking for in a partner or a date. It is also important to look for the best adult dating sites that have proven from time to time to help people meet men or women. You can also use multiple sites if you want to get a serious dating advantage or if you want to have chances of many hookups. If possible, try look for those sites that are clear about the kind of relationship a person is looking for to avoid conflicts when you meet in person.
