Book Review: Hooked


Summery from Goodreads:

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?


Hooked is the first book in the Hearts of Stone novels

It usually takes me a while to read a book. I get distracted easily, and it’s hard to find the time, but not with Hooked. I finished it in a couple days. I could not put this book down! The writing is really great, the author has a wonderful style that pulls the reader in. I had to know how this book would end!

Cat is an independent, fierce woman. She is easy to relate to, both in her strengths and insecurities.  Huck is the perfect leading man. He’s charming, confident, and sweet. I could tell from the beginning that these two characters had a lot of chemistry between them, and their interactions with each other are really fun and intense. The other characters in the story are done well, they each have a unique personality and they shine throughout the book.

The story itself I really enjoyed. It’s filled with romance, heartbreak, humor (I loved the humor!) , and some great twists. I highly recommend Hooked!

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
