Review: The 48-Hour Hookup by Sarah Ballance

Series: Chase Brothers #4
Release date: September 12th 2016
Publisher: Entangled Lovestruck
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Who knew a sweaty photo would be good for business?

Now unwanted booty calls are coming in as fast as work orders, and Liam Chase needs to get away. Cue a job upstate. His new client is hot as hell, but he left NYC to escape attention, not to hook up with the city’s “Runaway Bride”.

With three disastrous relationships under her belt, it’s clear Claire Stevens’s judgment sucks. And what’s she’s feeling for America’s newest sex god? Obviously another hormone-fueled mistake.

But when she accidentally fells a tree on his truck, leaving them stranded in a winter storm with a chocolate-snatching raccoon, there’s something to be said for body heat.

Too bad neither can trust their explosive chemistry…

*Publisher approved request via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was funny, flirty and fast-paced. The right mix if you're looking for something light to read. 

I liked the characters and the setting. That cold weather, small town, and cabin in the icy woods. It was just a very enjoyable story. The addition of that raccoon was a plus!

Loved that Liam and Claire had relatable circumstances. Both got unwanted publicity and were hoping to put that behind them, so it was understandable that they'd try to avoid starting a relationship. I mean, Claire was terribly unlucky in love and couldn't seem to find a genuine guy, and Liam was treated like a hot piece of meat and nothing more. But regardless of how they wanted to evade each other, Liam and Claire were just too appealing to the one another, so their intensity only grew. And I'm glad that Liam did what he did in the end and that things worked out for the best. 

Seems like a fun series and I'd love to pick up the previous 3 books and learn more about the Chase Brothers
