1. Hate-screw my high school nemesis.
2. Remember to hate him.
3. Prove my brother wrong.
It should be easy.
As the owner of Pick-A-Dick, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the dick pics-except this time, they’re required.
My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-Dick’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.
I disagree. I know it’s possible.
And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.
It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.
Not to mention packing in the pants department…

The Queen of Romantic Comedy does it again! And, this time around, Emma Hart had me at the title of Peyton and Peyton’s brother’s premier hook-up website “Pick-A-D*ick,” and while I don’t particularly envy Peyton’s title as the ‘official d*ck pic sorter,’ the whole concept of their hook-up service is as much intriguing as it is scarring based on the pictures that Peyton has the good or bad fortune of sifting through and the endless amount of stories that both she and her brother have in their arsenal to not only prove that their business actually works but also to entertain their friends with as much outlandish behavior as possible.
Peyton Austin is a girl after my own heart – partly because I’m just as snarky, stubborn, and sarcastic as she is and partly because she owns who she is, how she makes money, and how she spends her time. There’s nothing about Peyton that seems manufactured. She is who she is and people either accept her or they don’t; she doesn’t care in the slightest because she refuses to be someone she’s not, even if it’s for a man or maybe especially if it’s a man.
The fact that Peyton is the one who believes that hooking up with the same person three times doesn’t have to develop into something more, changes things up a bit, and while Peyton’s not one to turn down a bet, I had a feeling from Peyton and Elliott’s initial reunion that things were not going to be as easy as Peyton thought they would be because the man that Elliott Sloane has become is nothing like the teenage boy who was a no-show for prom, which means that all of Peyton’s disdain for him has nowhere to go and holding something against someone that happened so many years ago definitely becomes problematic when their hook ups become so much more than random and emotionless.
Once again, Emma Hart creates a scene stealer in her creation of Elliott’s little girl. There’s no way anyone can interaction with her and not be smitten with her innocence and her honesty, and regardless of how much Peyton would like to deny it or perhaps not accept her feelings, she is definitely not immune to this young girl’s charm and loveliness and I know everyone who reads The Hook-Up Experiment will be smitten by her as well.
I’m so glad that Emma Hart is giving readers more of Peyton and Elliott’s story and I love that it changed from an experiment of hooking up to an experiment of dating her brother’s best friend and falling in love. There’s so much still to know about these two as well as their friends, and I can’t leave out Elliott’s daughter because I’m excited to watch her grow up and teach the adults a thing or two about living and loving.
