Who knew a sweaty photo would be good for business?

Now unwanted booty calls are coming in as fast as work orders, and Liam Chase needs to get away. Cue a job upstate. His new client is hot as hell, but he left NYC to escape attention, not to hook up with the city’s “Runaway Bride”.

With three disastrous relationships under her belt, it’s clear Claire Stevens’s judgment sucks. And what she’s feeling for America’s newest sex god? Obviously another hormone-fueled mistake.

But when she accidentally fells a tree on his truck, leaving them stranded in a winter storm with a chocolate-snatching raccoon, there’s something to be said for body heat.

Too bad neither can trust their explosive chemistry…


"I laughed throughout this book, and even had a misty eyed moment as well. The Runaway Bride and the Hot HVAC Guy where the perfect match. All in all, another great read by Sarah. Can not wait to read more from her." -Sassy Beta Reading & Review

The 48-Hour Hookup was a fun, sweet and entertaining read.

The characters were likable, endearing and kept me turning the pages with their story.
I liked Liam and Claire together, they made a cute couple who found love when they least expected it.

This is a laugh out loud, hilarious romance and I loved it from start to finish!

After a client shared a photo of Liam Chase on the internet he gained an unwanted reputation as the hot HVAC Guy, with so many phone calls from admiring females he's really ready to escape. When an opportunity to do so ...more

The 48 hour hookup was a nice quick read. I really enjoyed the humor that Ballance added in to the story. Liam is known as the Hot HVAC guy and Claire is known as the Runaway Bride. Both are not happy about the added attention and are out of the city trying to stay under the radar. Well when a storm ...more

Our heroine has the paparazzo following her about as the 'runaway bride' because she walked away from three different relationships. That's why she spends some time at the old house in the woods left to her by her uncle. Unfortunately she needs help with the central air and heat.
Enter the Chase br ...more

The book throws you right into the story and I really enjoyed it at the beginning. There are some seriously hilarious scenes and Liam and Claire had some sizzling chemistry.

I also enjoyed the wintery blizzard atmosphere and had a lot of fun getting to know the characters. Liam was a great guy and ...more

Finally it's Liam's turn! The fourth of the Chase brothers finds his match in a sweet and sexy story with a 'we're trapped in a snowstorm, whatever will we do to pass the time!' theme. Liam's sudden bout of internet fame due to a chance photo tagging him as the 'Hot HVAC Guy' has resulted in far too ...more

“Am I allowed to laugh at this?” Yes. Yes I am. Sarah Ballance has written a LOL love story which made me laugh more than I thought was possible. From start to finish The 48-Hour Hookup was the p-e-r-f-e-c-t read!

I’ve wanted to read Sarah Ballance and her Chase Brothers series for awhile now. Silly ...more

Some hilarious fun with a racoon, a handyman-non-handy-man, a sexy HAVC guy, a runaway bride, a large tree branch, a snow storm, and some hot, sweaty fun. I was entertained all the way through this read.

Chase was infamous for all the wrong reasons and getting away from it all was at the top of his ...more

This is my first Chase Brothers book. It's also my first Sarah Ballance book. I have to say I am impressed! I will have to look into getting some of the other Chase brothers on my radar... ;-)

Liam and Claire's chemistry was out of this world. I could feel their heat seeping through the pages. Their ...more

Okay, so this seems to be a new habit of mine... Find a book, start reading and then realise it is part of a series and I started on the lasted book in the series! Thankfully the books in this series can all be read as standalones.

Loved this book though. If you are looking for a quick, funny, roman ...more

I didn't think that the Chase Brothers series could get any better...but it did!!

The characters were just amazing. Poor Liam...a little socially awkward in the middle of the boisterous Chase family and the subject of a meme to boot! Although I do have to admit that I would have probably partaken in ...more

This was funny, flirty and fast-paced. The right mix if you're looking for something light to read.

I liked the characters and the setting. That cold weather, small town, and cabin in the icy woods. It was just a very enjoyable story. The addition of that raccoon was a plus!

Loved that Liam and Clair ...more

I'm glad that the last chase brother got his HEA. I have found this series to be highly entertaining and this last book was clearly a great addition. The storyline was original even if the concept for one of the main characters has been used before. The author tweaked it and made it their own and th ...more

A hilarious and romantic story! What happens when internet sensation, Hot HVAC guy gets stranded at a winter lodge in the middle of nowhere, with the infamous Runaway Bride?

This story is so cute and it had me laughing out loud at times especially when Stanley comes to visit. It also had some really tender moments between Liam and Claire.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I somehow got my books out of order. I read this one before Ethan's book. This was a good read and I enjoyed it a great deal. It was a good read for the holidays. I will have to go back and finish Ethan's book. ...more

Of course I already love the other Chase boys/men and I couldn’t wait to read Liam’s HEA. Sarah Ballance is definitely a fabulous author and I’ve enjoyed reading her books in this series. The 48-Hour Hookup has a main plot twist, such as two semi ‘famous’ people stuck in unfortunate circumstances. N ...more

This was such a fun cute read. I need to go back and read the others soon. Liam was such a sweet shy guy and I loved Claire....she was a little feisty at times.
