I’ve had a tough time with the New Adult romance genre. There are several reasons, but one of the major ones seems to be the glaring disparity in what books get that label. Also, I’ve been burned by many NA books that were just horrible reads for me. But lately, I’ve read some fantastic ones that are making me reevaluate my opinion. Both Kristen Callihan’s The Hook Up and Scratch by Rhonda Helms hit the sweet spot for me with college-set stories that combine sweet and sexy romances with deep emotional angst. The stories are not the same, but have the same type of feel. I highly recommend both.
The Hook Up has Drew, the star college quarterback and Anna, the standoffish woman who is determined to keep her emotions bottled up. Drew is the pursuer, a man who sees Anna and falls for her immediately. Anna is gun shy and suspicious of Drew’s motives. How could the school’s star quarterback like her? Additionally, she has learned that relationships don’t last from her mother who has never had any luck with men.
