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.
