Hook Up is an elaborate and classy fictional tale of self-exploration. The characters embark on a journey of sexual discovery and personal development, each pushing their own limits finally to settle comfortably into a lustrous cushion of happiness. There were notable themes present consistently throughout the text revolving around emotional and physical empowerment, social acceptance and cultural normalcy, and emergence of trust in new relationships.
I liked the fact that there were relevant topics contained within the story which made it easy to dive right in and embed myself in the fantasies of Macy and Tobias. From the very beginning, the storyline made me want to pour a glass of wine, cuddle up under a blanket, and read until my cheeks couldn’t possibly blush anymore! Also, there are likeable language differences throughout the text which offers a very pleasant and jolly reading experience – the narrations in my head were of thick British accents, much like naughty versions of the characters in Bridget Jones’s Diary.
The story is absolutely fantastic and illustrates beautiful realizations of exploring the innermost passions of oneself, however lustful and fetish-filled they may be. The author made it normal and acceptable to indulge in such secretive hobbies, as if there is no reason to be ashamed or embarrassed. Costumes, role-playing, dominant and submissive, fun, flirting, love, adoration – this book encapsulates it all. The main female character is the iconic good vs. bad girl we all need sitting on our shoulders – that Angel to instill calmness and confidence and that Devil to push us to our limits. She sparks a courageous fire within even the most reserved reader!
In terms of content or depth, there are no notable dislikes. I only felt that the story was too brief – I wanted to keep reading forever!
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. My rating is based on my interpretations of the characters and my feelings about the book as a whole. I felt as though the themes and content were excellent, and the particular traits the author chose to portray his characters were incredible and defiant against cultural norms. No stick-thin models under and no muscular body builders. The 55 year old, voluptuous woman and boyishly handsome architect in his early twenties – Macy and Tobias wrap you up in their love/lust story right from the beginning. I did not give this book a rating of 3 because the foundations of thought were solid and I think the author embellished his portrayals perfectly throughout the story in detail and elaboration.
This book will appeal mostly to readers that enjoy a steamy, fun-filled experience that encourages self-exploration of curiosity and fantasy in and out of the bedroom. On the contrary, this book will appeal least to readers that prefer vanilla flavored, missionary style sex and is not for individuals who are made uncomfortable by sexual literature.
