The Hookup Dilemma by Constance Gillam


Rashida Howard has never been a one-night-stand kind of woman, but she has good reason for making an exception with Elliott after meeting him in a bar. Cliché? Yes. Utterly amazing? Absolutely. Regrets? None.

Elliott Quinn is a workaholic. The one night he decides to break his routine, he has an encounter with the woman of his dreams. But no matter how amazing they are together, work will always come first.

Both of their lives get turned upside down when they find themselves on opposite sides of an ongoing fight between Elliott’s company and Rashida’s community. Though their chemistry is undeniable, neither of them will risk their integrity…or their heart.

And just when they think they might have found a solution that benefits both sides, they uncover a secret that will change everything.


Rashida and ElliotQuinn met at the bar one night and had an instant connection between. Who would have thought they were ‘enemies’ on opposite sides on a sensitive issue? Rashida is a food critic who is trying to save her childhood neighborhood from the big business bad wolf that is Quinn enterprises. Needless to say that this leaves Rashida and Elliot’s huge attraction in danger.

This was a cute ‘lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers’. A fast-paced story with many funny scenes. The story was light and very easy to read. 


– Rashida’s relationship with her grandma is amazing and reminded me so much about my own relationship with my grandma, so it hit a sensitive spot in my heart.

– The mean pranks the old lady and her friend did on poor Elliot were amazing! Who doesn’t love a nice old lady that turns out to be sassier than we had expected?

– The plot was light and amusing. I really enjoyed the story in general.


– The author focused too much on their sexual tension and less on their romantic feelings towards one another.


For fans of the ‘enemies to lovers’ trope that need a light and funny read I recommend this book.
