The Anonymous Hookup by Jax Calder

“Yeah,” I manage. My brain is currently offline, frolicking in a happy meadow where unicorns and other magical creatures exist.' The Anonymous Hookup.

From the blurb:

I’ve never been a strings-free sex type of guy, but when my best friend encourages me to have my first ever anonymous hookup, I figure, why not? One night of steamy sex with a stranger and then I’ll focus back on recovering from my toxic break-up.

Only I’m not prepared for how incredibly hot the sex is.

Nor am I prepared to run into him again.

Because it turns out my anonymous hookup might not be so anonymous after all…

This low-angst 29,000-word novella is full of fun banter, steamy times, sweet times and contains a few surprises along the way. 

Laora's Review:

I just loved this witty, entertaining and fun novella.  The story is told from Lane his pov. 

I liked but Lane and Sam as characters they go for the anonymous hookup both, that did not really work. 

After another chance meeting they seem to be on a never ending date, except for going to work,  😉🙂, all under the guise of 'play dates' for the dogs.

The writing style of Jax just clicks on all levels. Recommend it for a great light read.

Heather's Review:

If you're looking for a short, steamy and entertaining read, I've found it for you!  The Anonymous Hookup is about taking chances, staying anonymous and of course a dash of fate... because Lane's never seen the guy he hooks up with before, so he'll probably never see him again...

With the best side characters - their adorable puppies and even more coincidence to come... this novella was a quick and fun read and hit all my highlights!  It was a great novella and while I always want more of great characters, had a satisfying conclusion...

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

This has to be the absolute most perfect novella love story ever!! The excitement started right from the start, lasting until the last word! Lane and Sam complimented one another exceptionally well, even though they were supposedly “an anonymous hookup”. 

“𝙻𝚞𝚌𝚔𝚒𝚕𝚢 𝙸 𝚌𝚊𝚖𝚎 𝚘𝚞𝚝 𝚝𝚘𝚗𝚒𝚐𝚑𝚝 𝚊𝚕𝚕 𝚙𝚛𝚎𝚙𝚊𝚛𝚎𝚍 𝚕𝚒𝚔𝚎 𝚊 𝚐𝚘𝚘𝚍 𝚋𝚘𝚢 𝚜𝚌𝚘𝚞𝚝.“

There was a different form of connection between these two, like they had known each other their entire life yet just met for the first time. Their playful banter, their automatic closeness, and most of all their steaming hot chemistry, left absolutely nothing to dislike with this story.  

I also absolutely loved their unknown connection, like destiny drew them together. The only issue I had with this amazing story was that it came to an end. But, Jax has a way with words that draws her readers in, connecting with their hearts.

Nicole's Review:

This was an adorable fluffy quick romance with a ton of chemistry. 

Lane is trying to get over a toxic ex when his best friend convinces him he needs to have a no-strings night of fun. T

his turns into an adorable afterwards meet cute with Maybe Sam. Fate throws them together so often it's obviously meant to be. 

This is a very short story, but packed with steamy scenes and just enough character growth that the romance is believable. There's a pretty good twist at 70% that I was NOT expecting. 

The epilogue was perfect, and I was left wanting even more after their perfect HEA.
