The Hookup Plan

Forever: Grand Central. (The Boyfriend Project, Bk. 3). Aug. 2022. 400p. ISBN 9781538716687. pap. $15.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
London Kelley is a celebrated pediatric surgeon and the last in her trio of friends to meet her match, although all she’s really looking for is a stress-busting series of no-strings hookups. Drew Sullivan is not only the unlikeliest of hookup partners since he was London’s biggest high school rival, but he is also in town to assess whether London’s hospital should be sold to a private company. Their antagonistic working relationship translates into explosive nights together, although London can’t see any way for their fulfilling physical relationship to develop into something lasting, especially when Drew may end up recommending that her hospital be sold. Both London and Drew are driven, high-performing professionals with hidden trauma in their past that influences their behavior and decisions. Readers looking for a love story between grown-ups facing serious decisions will find satisfaction in the slow emotional burn without sacrificing the spiciness of the fast-moving physical relationship. Equally satisfying is the rich depiction of female friendship.

CORRECTION: This review originally mispelled the protagonist’s last name; it is Kelley, not Kelly. LJ regrets the error.

VERDICT Rochon wraps up her “Boyfriend Project” series (following previous installment The Dating Playbook) with this engaging enemies-to-lovers romance. A fulfilling end to a strong trilogy.
