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…

I have to admit, I was sceptical going into this book. As mentioned in my Upside to Being Single review, I’ve only read one other book by Emma Hart and that was twisted bond which I loved but then I read the Upside to Being Single and I didn’t enjoy that as much which was a shame. However, I really enjoyed this which I’m so glad and it was the fun read that I was hoping for from TUTBS.
This follows Peyton who we met in TUTBS and she owns a hook-up Website Pick-A-Dick where men send in pictures of themselves and their dick with a profile and she matches them with women for a hook-up. Her brother ends up daring her to sleep with the same man, 3-times in 2 weeks and not fall in love with him. Peyton accepts the dare thinking it will be easy to do but obviously, that’s not the case. She gets matched with Elliot; her high school crush who stood her up at her junior prom (which she never forgave him for) so she figures its going to be easy to not fall in love with him.
I loved Peyton as a character; she was feisty and strong without being a complete man hater like a lot strong female characters can be portrayed as. This is only backed by the fact she owns her own business and its doing incredibly well. I loved how open she was about Elliot being a single dad and her not really sure if that’s what she wanted. It was refreshing to see the turmoil and not just have everything played out nicely because that’s obviously not how life goes.
The romantic comedy part of this book was much better done than in TUTBS and didn’t feel forced at all. Elliot and Peyton obviously had chemistry which made their interactions feel a lot more natural. It was obvious where this was going to go when we saw who she was matched with and we heard their whole back story, but I honestly didn’t mind that you knew where the story was going. I was happy to just see how they got to their ending and what path they were going to take. This was a lot more sexually graphic than TUTBS and there are sex scenes early on in this book, so just be warned if this is something you look out for!
Overall, I really enjoyed the book and thought it was a nice cheesy romantic comedy which was easy to read. I’d definitely recommend picking this up if it’s something your into and even better, this is the first book out of a duology with the second book sometime later this year.
