Book Review ~ HOMECOMING & HOOKUPS by Kelly Anne Blount and Lynn Rush

Homecoming & Hookups
by: Kelly Anne Blount and Lynn Rush
Genre: YA/NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 15, 2022
Publisher: New Leaf Publishing, Inc.

My brother’s best friend is a total manwhore and completely off limits. So why can’t I stop thinking about him?

Notorious manwhore Roman Ashford has never gotten along with his best friend’s saintly twin sister, Sienna Carmichael. She’s irritatingly perfect, flawlessly beautiful, and she hates his guts. Then again, he has tried to sleep with practically everyone in her school’s Virginity Club. But now that she’s transferred to Kent Academy, he’s going to have to see her every single day, which means facing his forbidden feelings for her.

Sienna Carmichael’s life flips upside down when she has to unexpectedly transfer to Kent Academy. Now she must navigate a co-ed high school, a boyfriend who doesn’t seem to want her there, and her twin brother’s smoking hot best friend, who’s totally off-limits.

Ditched moments before Kent Academy’s Homecoming dance, Sienna’s twin convinces Roman to take her, just as friends. But when Sienna and Roman end up in the backseat of his Mercedes after the high school dance, it spells catastrophe for everyone involved.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read Kelly Anne Blount. Picking up and reading Homecoming & Hookups made me remember why I love her writing. Since the story seemed so seamless, I can only assume Lynn Rush’s writing style is exactly the same as Kelly Anne’s.

Homecoming & Hookups is a best friend/sibling, friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, opposites attract, drama-filled romance. Sienna Carmichael and Roman Ashford have been friends since the age of twelve, when Roman moved from Iowa to live with his aunt in California, after the death of his parents. Actually, Roman and Sienna’s twin brother Slade became friends first and she usually just tagged along. The trio are backdoor neighbors, with Roman usually hanging out at the Carmichael home, as an added family member.

Just days before the start of senior year, a fire breaks out at Sienna’s all-girls private school, forcing her to attend Kent Academy, the co-ed private school attended by Slade, Roman, and her boyfriend, Broderick. Being the new kid at school is always hard, but for Sienna, things are worse when classes she wants to take aren’t offered and she’s made the laughing stock of school because she’s the founding member and president of the Purity Club. Things continue to get complicated for Sienna when she starts to see Broderick and Roman in whole new lights.

I loved Homecoming & Hookups. Roman and Sienna were easy to love. Their back and forth banter while designed at times to irritate each other, was fun to watch. Each is so much more than they reveal to the world and those around them. Their feelings for each emerge authentic. This was a story I truly did not want to see end. It should be noted that the story mentions consensual encounters and addiction.
