The American Psychological Association also says that hookups can result in guilt and negative feelings. Students who reported to Freitas that they were profoundly upset about hooking up say the encounters made them feel, among other things, used, miserable, disgusted, and duped. College students base their sexual ideas and sexual actions within a peer culture.
This is where students who are peers are comparing and differing sexual situations in one's own life amongst each other to create a foundation for the current hookup culture. Bogle describes the peer culture at universities as the "sexual arena. This peer culture is not only amongst college students, but it may start to develop around the time puberty starts in middle school for both genders around the age of eleven to fourteen years old.
In general, puberty is a time when sexuality and body awareness becomes a main focus for individuals to formulate this aspect of their identity. Once in college, for most students, the parental aspect is diminished leaving a student feeling a high degree of freedom to truly explore and expand their whole personal identity, strongly including sexual identity in this "sexual arena. According to Bogle, the campuses her studies were done at had a common trend of college students being strongly interested in every other student's private life. The viewers of this activity process, interpret, and form assumptions about what was observed.
These types of sexual activity or public displays of affection could be as meaningless as two individuals romantically speaking to each other in a high capacity location on campus or could be as extreme as two individuals walking into a bedroom together at a party.

This peer culture has evolved and escalated with access to rapid communication such as texting on cell phones and multiple social media applications. Most these social media applications are identity profiles, public thought disposals, and virtual photo albums of oneself, where other's are just a click away from cyber analysis of how that individual displays themselves physically, sexually, psychologically, emotionally, and mentally on the internet.
Bogle states that the knowing of other's personal lives isn't just a purpose to gossip, but a way to observe, analyze, and be impacted by other's sexual actions, solely for the purpose of their own actions. Some studies have made a connection between hookup culture and substance use.
About a third of the students who reported engaging in vaginal, anal, or oral sex during a hookup reported being very intoxicated and another third reported being mildly intoxicated. Studies suggest that the degree of alcoholic intoxication directly correlates with the level of risky behavior. Studies have generally shown that greater alcohol use is associated with more sexual activity in the course of a hookup.
At the other end of the spectrum, the greatest alcohol consumption was associated with penetrative sex, and less alcohol consumption with non-penatrative hookups. Hookup culture on college campuses is intertwined with a broader society. On the other hand, some sociologists have argued that hookup culture is a characteristic of the American college environment and does not reflect broader American youth culture, just as many college graduates stop engaging in hookups when they leave college preferring instead dating or other sexual arrangements.
But evidence exists that young women are propelling it too. Hookup culture also exists outside of the college environment. Location-based geosocial networking smartphone applications, a. Life course studies indicate that as people grow older and as they subjectively identify as adult, they are less likely to engage in casual sexual behavior.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has argued that media representations of sexuality may influence teen sexual behavior,  and this view is supported by a number of studies. Cable television is filled with reality shows that depict an image of partying and glorified hookups, one of the most well known shows being MTV's Jersey Shore. As the cost of personal computers dropped and online access has increased, Heldman and Wade, along with others, argue that internet pornography has "emerged as a primary influence on young people's, especially men's, attitudes towards sex and their own sexuality.
There are many ideas as to why people think young adults are involved in this hook up culture, such as that they feel like they have to do it to fit in. However, many boys and girls did report that they do hook up with random people in order to find someone they could possibly start something serious with. There have also been a number of studies that have studied the mental aspects of casual hookups. In a study done by psychologist Seth Schwartz has shown results that say that people who had many random hook ups had more psychological issues.
They then came up with results that showed that penetrative sex hook ups made people with greater feelings of depression and loneliness have a decrease in those symptoms and feelings. For example, a study by Reiber and Garcia in show that a lot of people that engage in sexual hook ups feel uncomfortable. Random hook ups also have shown to cause feelings of pressure and performance anxiety in a study by Paul, et al.
In this research it was demonstrated that the number of sex partners people have nowadays has barely any difference to the number of partners people had twenty to thirty years ago. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Media and American adolescent sexuality. The Myths and Realities of the Hookup Experience". What does it mean? Hookups have replaced casual sex and even dating on many college campuses over the years, but as is so often the case when sex is discussed, it's not altogether clear what everybody is talking about when they say "hookup.
Researchers at the University of Montana found so many different definitions among the students they studied that they had to come up with a precise definition to be sure everybody was talking about the same thing. Unfortunately, Anna doesn't have serious on her mind.
She wants him to be a hook up and nothing more. Drew has other plans, and won't give up until he makes Anna his. I really loved him. For a guy that had everything and everyone at his disposal, he was quite down to earth. Sure, at times he could be a bit arrogant but in a very sexy way.
I loved the relationship he shared with his teammates. What I loved the most was seeing him try to sway Anna into being in a relationship with him the was more than just sex. He could be so sweet and so caring. He was also very hot, sexy, and alpha. Anna, I kind of liked at first. She has gone through some things that make her quite insecure about why on earth a guy like Drew could want her. This insecurity is what caused me to not like her so much. She was just so stubborn and it frustrated me that she kept trying to keep Drew as arm's length emotionally.
Then at the end, I liked her again because I liked that she finally did something good. She challenged and cared Drew when he needed it the most. It was so beautiful watching these too interact, especially during those sweet moments that melted my heart. I know you wouldn't be because, since the moment I laid eyes on you, you're all I can see. There wasn't any over the top drama that dragged things out. There was some angst in this book but it was a good amount. It wasn't all the color of roses as there were some intense moments between the main characters that tugged at my heart strings.
I couldn't put this book down because I loved all of those emotional scenes. I really did like this book, and it's definitely one I would recommend you give a read. Especially to those who love the New Adult genre. I can't wait to see what is next in the series. I feel i'm in loss of pretty words and it's difficult for me to describe the situation that Drew and Anna caught themselves up!! This was a very nice story that made me pass from many stages while i was reading it I had heard so many good words about this book and i wanted so badly to read it, but at the same time something was holding me back and then one day i decided that it was about time And i started it!!!
And i felt rush and excitement and then i started to feel annoyance toward Anna And the annoyance continued because Anna was so damn stubborn and i wanted to shake her up to open her eyes and see the truth that was lying inside her heart But Anna and Drew made it a fuckin' mess and i was with Drew's side Okay that's an understatement because i was almost all the time with Drew's side!!! And God, something bad happened and finally followed something good and i felt relief and almost happiness, but then for first time Drew disappointed me!!!
But after all those shit that i had to get through, everything went good!!! As you can understand those two were so fuckin' messed up, but who isn't??? But i will have to admit that this story was feeling like reality!!! It wasn't something extraordinary that nobody from all of us wouldn't do And i like that!!!
Drew and Anna were two normal people with their fears, their insecurities, they ups and their downs, with dark days and beautiful days, with sex and snuggling, with fights and overeacting In many points it reminded me of myself And i liked that it seemed so real I won't tell you much about the story. Drew was the star of the campus, he liked Anna and he went after her. Anna had her issues, she had a bad opinion of Drew and she didn't want anything more than a hook-up They hooked up but Drew was insisting for more, but Anna wasn't agree.
So, they made this deal Anna preffered to refuse her feelings and she even refused her kisses to Drew because this action was too intimate. And Drew fell hard for Anna and he was tiptoying around her from the fear to lose what little she was giving to him. You think that this deal could be successfull??? Or everything will go to hell??? I can't tell you more That burns the most. As if she needed to relegate me to some random, near faceless fuck I saw a sweet and caring man and i couldn't do anything than sympathize him.
He was a very good man. And he had true feelings for Anna. But she was hurting him with her attitude and i was furious for her behalf. Who wouldn't want a man like him around her??? Not me, for sure!!! I wanted to punch Anna for the insecurity that she was causing him!!! He didn't deserve to get through all those shits that she was throwing to his way. But to be fair, near to the end, he made me mad too!!! He was a little bit irrational, but i forgive him!!! He deserved for once to be the one who was a little bit I have to admit that in the most part of the book, she was irritating me very much.
I know that she was having feelings for Drew from the first moment, but this denial was driving me crazy and it was hurting Drew!!! Yep, at some point i understood her reasons for all this insecurity and attitude but i think that Drew never gave her the opportunity to doubt his feelings. So, she was unfair to him and i didn't like that! They could be so perfect together from the first moment, but she didn't aloud it!! This is too close to a relationship. She stood by her man's side and she fought for him I really liked how she stood to Drew at their biggest fight.
I admired her for that and for some other things before that Drew and Anna were having great chemistry and when they were together everything was smooth and beautiful When they were apart everything was dark and meaningless. And that's why i was mad with them For the lost time He was funny and a little bit meathead, but i really liked how close he was with Drew and how he was handling all the bullshits that Drew pulled out at him near to the end!!!
I can't wait for his turn!!!

If the alternate cover would have been my option. I probably would have skipped it. Just a note to authors that books are indeed judged by their covers. I really need to buy that book. Alright, enough of that.

The Hook Up
View all 19 comments. View all 4 comments. GOD, I'm so glad I picked this one up after resisting it for so damn long. Once again, I am reminded of the stupidity of prejudice. I normally try to refrain from NA Romance, because they're mostly Somehow I felt totally sucked into the story and had to abandon all my earthly responsibilities to see how this messy little love story wraps up, anxious to get to the next page. Anna feels a pull like she has never experienced before. And Anna is not exactly as calm and quiet as she seems, apparently, because she immediately gives Drew a piece of her mind for the ridiculous nickname.
What a first impression, right? Anna wants nothing to do with Drew. She is into the emotional and poetic guys, not the popular playboys with cocky grins. He is definitely not good for her, so she tries to avoid Drew like the plague. But Drew is goddamn stubborn and will not give up till he gets Anna. He is used to girls throwing themselves at his feet, but not Anna. No, she acts like she couldn't care less about him.
For the first time in his life, he actually has to work for it. Now that they have tasted from the forbidden fruit, they want more and they will never be able to get enough, it seems. Anna is terrified though.

She has never been the center of attention of any boy before. She was a shadow and a subject of jokes in high school. She was the girl that no one even noticed, except for the times that she was bullied. She doesn't believe that someone like Drew can ever care for her. She has to protect herself. No kissing on the mouth, no staying for the night, no telling anyone and no falling in love.
I've just experienced the hottest, most erotic, life-changing sex of my life and I don't think I'm going to get a repeat. And I'm screwed because it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. He wants everything with Anna. And he will get it… He just has to be patient and prove to her that he is not the Drew that everyone else sees. He has to prove that he can be the right guy for her.
Will Anna be courageous enough to trust Drew and give him her heart in exchange for his? His tough exterior combined with the interior vulnerability and loneliness just stole my breath away. His determination to persuade Anna, despite her mistakes and bad choices and his heartbreak when he gets rejected, just made my heart melt. His charming ways were the best thing about this book. I want her here forever. I'm twenty-three years old, my carefully built life has just been smashed to pieces, yet I know with complete clarity that I never want to be parted from Anna Jones.
And every time I had to walk away from you, every time you walked away from me, it felt like it was being ripped out of my chest. I didn't exactly like her for most of the book, but that changed once she didn't give up on Drew when he started making huge mistakes because of the stinky mood he was in. She stood up for herself, for Drew, for their love. I adored that about her and she instantly won my heart. All the guys were adorable and interesting and so much fun!
This is a story full of emotion and angst but there is no exaggerated and pointless drama, which makes it perfect and puts it into a separate shelf from other NA Romance books for me. I thought I had lost myself in Drew. But the truth was that I'd found myself in him. Basic plot - Drew is Mr. Popular Star Quarterback of his college, and Anna catches his eye on their first day of class.
They hook up, but Anna tries to keep Drew at a distance for fear of being consumed by her attraction to him and getting her heart broken. I must admit, the beginning of The Hook Up had me feeling a tad iffy. I am not a fan of insta-love, and can count on one hand the amount of times I have read it and felt it was actually believable or without making me want to roll my eyes. Without a doubt, Drew is what undeniably made this book. I cannot stress enough how much I adored his character. He was everything you could ask for in a hero.
I can go on and on. Dialogue is what makes or breaks a book for me. They were so steamy but at the same time so emotionally charged. I Should Note …. By the time we got a deeper look into her insecurities, though, the annoyance waned. And because Drew made it SO obviously clear he adored Anna and was nothing short of amazing it made it hard for me to understand her reluctance.
It would have been easier to sympathize with her more if he was a known jerk or player with a seedy past, but Drew was someone anyone and everyone would pine for. I grew to like her so much more as the book progressed. I also really would have loved more chapters in Drew's POV. I am utterly obsessed with this boy. The story got better and better with each page. View all 26 comments. Sep 06, Natasha is a Book Junkie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Or at least I like to tell myself that I am.
The truth is that they rarely have the emotional complexity and substance that I now, as someone who is no longer of college age, seek in my reads. I do love some trademark elements present in this genre of books—the hesitation of the characters when faced with the inevitable transition from early adulthood to full-grown maturity, their struggle to accept the future before them, and the people they are becoming—but stories like these often do not have the multilayered character development that I, personally, need in order to connect with those characters and to immerse myself fully into their journey.
However, once in a while, a book comes along that proves me wrong by showing me that, when flawlessly written, any story, regardless of its main themes or the age of its characters, can pull you in and blow your socks off.
See a Problem?
This is one of those books. Nothing about this story is predictable, everything is just perfect, and apart from being phenomenally written, it is one of the most refreshing and surprisingly touching tales I have come across. Do yourself a favour and allow this book to rock your world, because mine is still shaking from the aftershocks of reading something truly awesome.
She also grew up watching her unlucky-at-love mother getting her heart broken time after time by men who came and went, vowing never to allow herself to become that vulnerable or let a man become her all. Her new college life has given her a fresh start in life, far away from the misguided reputation she painfully carried all throughout her younger years, and apart from her two best friends, she fiercely guards her anonymity.
I was no longer that weird loner who everyone assumed was smoking up before class. When the voluptuous redhead sitting next to him in class catches his eye, one look at her leaves him utterly breathless. She leaves him tongue-tied and uncertain of himself, but with every word they exchange, he knows he wants to know her more. The whole prickly-mouthed, sweetly curved, irresistible package. Unfortunately, their willingness to embrace that happiness differs from the very beginning—while Drew sees what his life would be with someone like Anna in it and wishes to capture it forever, Anna remains emotionally distant, her growing need and feelings for him overwhelming her and making her want to run in the other direction.
I want to shout it to him. He has the world in his palm. He gives her space, time, bends backwards to make her as comfortable as possible with their little arrangement, but he secretly craves for more. He craves to claim her and let everyone know that she is his. Our heroine is a young woman who is so terrified of being judged by others by living in the limelight with Drew, that she would rather break her own heart than come out of the shadows in which she hides. She cannot help but feel the disapproving eyes of everyone around them, watching them, wondering what Drew sees in someone like her, and that awareness cripples her.
Why would Baylor pick me? This story is incredibly multi-layered, so flawlessly written that I found myself re-reading passages just so that I would fully absorb the beauty of the prose, and it moved me deeply. Ms Callihan has also given us a rare type of hero in a young man like Drew Baylor—he is unafraid to express his feelings, to become emotionally exposed before the woman he loves, and his kind of love is awe-inspiring.
As much as I loved and understood the heroine, Drew was definitely the highlight of the book for me. I never expected to like a story like this, but some books are written so well, you cannot help but break away from your own preconceptions. Follow me on Facebook! Follow me on Twitter!

I don't remember it being so deep! We get into these characters on a deeper level then I'm used to with college athlete books. I think that was a good surprise! I love their dialogue. I also love how deeply they cared for and knew each other.
I'm increasing my rating from 4 stars to 4. I'm still frustrated with the ending, but you know -- blah blah needs a farther glimpse into the future blah blah -- can you tell I'm tired of writing this?! This is Anna and Drew's story. They meet in a class their senior year of college. Drew is the star quarterback for the college team, and Anna is not interested in jocks.
Drew is instantly interested and starts a strong pursuit of Anna that results in a hook-up. Anna isn't interested in being in the limelight by dating the football player, so she convinces him to keep it casual and not a relationship even though Drew wants it all. There are some funny moments, some hot sexy times, some sad scenes Overall Pace of Story: It's on the longer side, but I thought it flowed well and I never skimmed.
Not in the usual way. It takes a while for the h to develop stronger feelings, but the H feels strongly right away doesn't express love or anything until way later. I appreciated how he pursued the h. He was also pretty hot! She was sassy, smart, and I liked how she came to care for the H. I did shed a few tears, but I never needed any tissues. Yes view spoiler [ They both push away and also pursue the relationship at times, but I'd say that the H is the main pursuer.
They have some hot tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. Yes, but when separated view spoiler [Both of them see each other out on dates with other people when separated, and this causes jealousy for both of them.

This has not enough closure for me. Shocking for me, right?! This one should be either Safe or Safe with exception for most safety gang readers depending on personal preferences. View all 12 comments. Sep 08, Jen rated it it was amazing. I loved Drew and his ability to be one of the best collegiate athletes in the country and still retain a douche free existence.
Anna was all kinds of awesome and, even though she did not go willingly into this relationship and that fact tired the fuck out of me, I loved her snark. I also more than loved the sexual tension between these two, even when they were actually getting it on. The chemistry between them was palpable and I loved every minute of it. I can't wait for Glamour Gray' s story next! I originally rated this 4 stars, even though I have a 4. I'm bumping that up to 5 stars. I keep going back to this one for all kinds of reread situations and that alone deserves some proper respect.
