Blurb (from 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…


This book was so much fun to read about! I loved how funny it was at parts and I greatly enjoyed it. Plus the emotional and romantic drama was the perfect mixture!

Liam has shot to an instant fame as the Hot HVAC Guy and he’s in a dire need to get out of town. When a job comes up, he snatches the opportunity to leave town for a bit but the call for help came from none other than the infamous “Runaway bride”, Claire Stevens. But then the unthinkable happens, they both get stuck with each other because of the storm and the road gets cut off. They both need normalcy and that’s never going to happen if they stay together but for how long can they deny the chemistry between them?

The plot was pretty great and fun. This was a short and past faced book, I easily devoured it in one sitting. Claire has run away from the altar two times already but the third time was the worst. The media gave her the ultimate nickname as the “Runaway Bride”, she has swore off men but with Liam she wants to give love another chance. Liam got overnight famous when a girl shot his picture when he was in gym as the “Hot HVAC Guy”. I loved how the story was executed, it was definitely not predictable but I loved the fact about that.

The characters were pretty much amazing! I loved both Claire and Liam! Liam was the only one who actually understood for who she is and didn’t judge her. He was definitely swoon worthy and I loved him soo much. But he took a few bad decisions but I was glad he had his family to get him straight. I loved the gesture he did during the end to earn her forgiveness. They both had undeniable chemistry and I absolutely loved the romance between them! But I have to confess something, I especially  loved the raccoon, he was my favourite part despite everything! XD

Overall, The 48-Hour Hookup was an amazing read! I enjoyed the plot and the characters kept me interested throughout the book. I loved Liam and Claire together. The writing was smooth and easy to read. We get a glimpse of the other Chase brothers throughout the book and after reading this book I am definitely interested in reading the whole series!
