The Hookup Mix-Up by Riley Hart Instagram Tour

Release Tour. Riley Hart’s The Hookup Mix-Up.


I moved to San Luco to get to know my brother, and so far, it’s been great. Working as a bartender at Shenanigans, a bar close to Franklin University, there are beautiful men and women everywhere. When a hot guy falls into my arms at a party, I’m down for some naughty fun. Until I realize he’s way too drunk for anything to happen. Thankfully, we agree to meet up the next day.

One near-kiss later, I discover Theo has no idea I’ve been hitting on him. He thinks we’re hanging out as buddies, and to my great regret, says he’s straight. How did I misread this situation when I thought he was giving me all the right signals?


Perry thinks I’m a nine… a nine! Sure, I’m not into dudes, but it’s flattering that someone as attractive as him thinks I’m hot. Despite the confusion, Perry and I click and agree to keep hanging out. The more time I spend with him, the more I realize there’s a part of myself I’ve been ignoring. One that’s super bi and wants Perry as more than a friend.

Trying to study with him makes things hard for me… below the belt. Unfortunately, his abandonment issues have him open to a fling and nothing more, while I’m catching feelings in a big way. Can I be satisfied with a hookup? Or should I find a way to convince him to take a chance on making this something real?

My whole body is thrumming with electricity, like there’s a lightning storm, and I wonder if Perry will get struck by all this want inside me.     “Good?” he asks, pulling away.     “So… so… so good. Being bisexual is the best.”



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

The Hookup Mix-Up is the first book in the second season of the Franklin U series. Franklin U is a multi-author series of standalones all based on the same college campus.

Perry moved to San Luco not to attend Franklin U but to get to know his brother, Ty, who is a student there. Ty grew up with their dad, but Perry did not, hence finding him as an adult to get to know his brother. After hearing about a party going on, Perry is all for going even though he doesn't know anyone there. When he walks in and sees the most adorable guy he's ever seen almost fall off the table and directly into Perry's arms, he thinks it can't be that easy to find a hookup can it? After spending some time with Theo, he realizes he's way too drunk and high to do anything but flirt all night and swaps numbers for when he's sober. Perry's more of a hookup and go kind of guy than letting people in and having a relationship. When he finds out Theo is straight, he doesn't want to stop seeing him and everyone needs a new friend, right?

Theo can't help but like the knight in shining armor who saves him from falling off the table, but while he just thinks he's being a nice guy, he doesn't realize that Perry is flirting and wanting to hook up with him. He likes Perry but not that way, until he starts noticing Perry in a new way. Could he be bisexual? Could there be more to Theo wanting to hang out with Perry all the time?

I loved everything about the beginning of season two of FU. Perry has his walls around built so high from the trauma of growing up with a dad who didn't want him and he thinks no one else will. Theo is able to break down that wall, piece by piece, and show Perry he deserves so much more than he's letting himself have. Theo is under so much pressure being the first in his family to graduate, but school is so incredibly hard for him. He tries but something just doesn't make sense when he's studying, until Perry offers to help and read to him, which makes it easier. They were everything the other needed and then some. The chemistry and the soft way Perry "taught" Theo was so sweet. I am a huge fan of these authors and can't wait to get more in this series!
