REVIEW~ Hooked by Christine Manzari

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?

Rating: 4 Stars 
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
From the first page Hooked by Christine Manzari was light and fun. Once I started reading it there was no way I was putting it down until I was finished. I must admit I wanted more at the end of the book but for me once I enjoy a story I never want the character's story to end. I hope Christine sees this and thinks about giving us a little more Cat and Huck or even a story about Cat's best friend Jay.

Cat was a different type of female lead. She didn't have the typical long blonde hair and blue eyes I read about often. She was a woman with tattoo's, who skates and isn't afraid of being herself. Cat or Cate is fun, outspoken and basically did whatever she wanted. Cat doesn't let anyone get close to her but her best friend Jay. One night Cat walks over to Huck to inquiry about his stalking abilities and the rest is history.

Huck always found something interesting about Cat and he couldn't stop staring. I enjoyed Huck's character. He was also funny and when he found something he wanted he went after it hard.

Both of their worlds collide and both Cat and Huck must find a way to cope with what faith has thrown them. Huck isn't ready to give up on Cat and Cat is a stubborn, feisty girl.

Overall, I enjoyed Hooked. The characters worked well together, it was an easy read as I didn't feel like the story dragged. All the characters had me laughing and some point or another with their antics. Christine did a great job and it showed through her writing.

I will definitely recommend Hooked to anyone looking or a light and romantic read.

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.
