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?


I received a copy of this ARC for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. 

Hooked is a very fitting title since I was “hooked” from page one. The characters are so real and easy to relate to. Cat grew up with an alcoholic father which makes it hard for her to trust anyone. She has all these rules when it comes to relationships. Huck is a determined, hardworking pretty boy who refuses to give up. Their chemistry is instant. Cat and Huck think a one night stand will be enough for them but it just might be enough to ruin them. 
Cat is snarky and I love it! She has just enough sass to keep you entertained. I would highly recommend Hooked to anyone who likes a fast-paced read containing humor and a sprinkle of steamy scenes.
