I haven’t read an Erin McCarthy book in such a long time so I was really excited when I saw she had a new series coming out. The Jordan Brothers follows two brothers falling for two sisters. The brothers (twins!!!) have some heavy past issues to overcome and the sisters couldn’t be more different from each other.
We start off with Sophie and Cain. Cain is in a very dark and bad place in his life. This was brought on by said issues with his brother and he doesn’t really care about anything other than working and drinking himself into a stupor afterwards. I liked how real and raw he felt, especially those low moments. In the middle of that he sees Sophie first as a way to past the time. But she’s so different than everyone he knows that he can’t resist the pull for more.
These two are definitely opposites attract. Sophie is very analytical, brutally honest and incredibly smart. She has never given that much importance to the things others live for. Like social interactions, friendships, physical connection, love. I was surprisingly able to connect with her and found her endearing.
THE HOOKUP has a more new adult feel than I usually like and some parts can be a little too much drama to handle. But I still thought it was a cute read and I have to read the next one to see how these brothers will get over their problems.
