Author: Christine Manzari

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 2/3/15

If you ask the confident and snarky skater girl, and she’s in the mood to share, she’ll tell you her name is Cat. She might even tell you that she’s hooked on graffiti, 80s movies, and having fun—the riskier the better. Cat will share a good time with you, but she won’t ever trust you enough to share her heart. It’s protected by secrets and she’d like to keep it that way.

Cat knows one thing for certain: Love isn’t really her thing.

If you ask the confident and rich pretty boy, he might tell you his name is Huck. He might even tell you he loves a challenge and is used to getting his way. He won’t tell you that his life is a mess because he risked his heart by trusting the wrong girl. Huck is ready for a change, he just wasn’t ready to get hooked on someone like Cat.

Huck knows one thing for certain: Love hasn’t done him any favors, but Cat just might be worth the risk.

Cat and Huck think a one-night stand seems harmless, but when all the little secrets they didn’t share turn out to be toxic truths, they realize how easily a one-night stand (or a few) could ruin everything.

The thing is, you can be ruined in more than one way. Once you’re HOOKED, what wouldn’t you risk for the chance at more?
Review by Angie

Hooked started a bit slow for me but at about 25% in that changed drastically! Cat and Huck are quite the characters. But we can’t forget about Jay either, Cat’s roommate. The three of them make a great team. 

From Cat’s tragedy with her mom, to learning Huck’s job and secrets to Jay's sneakiness so Cat and Huck could be together, there really wasn’t a dull moment in the book after the first 25%. 

The sexy scenes were plenty steamy for my taste and there were plenty of them….the barn scene was my favorite by far though!

My only complaint would be that the book seemed a bit choppy. A scene would jump from Cat hanging out on the couch with her mom watching a movie and then next paragraph would start out with her being in her office. I found myself having to reread some to follow what was going on.

Overall, this was a really good read for me. It had action, steaminess, and it tugged at my emotions a bit. 

4 stars for Hooked!

The first thing Christine does when she's getting ready to read a book is to crack the spine in at least five places. She wholeheartedly believes there is no place as comfy as the pages of a well-worn book. She's addicted to buying books, reading books, and writing books. Books, books, books. She also has a weakness for adventure, inappropriate humor, and coke (the caffeine-laden bubbly kind). Christine is from Forest Hill, Maryland where she lives with her husband, three kids, and her library of ugly spine books.
