Review of Hooked by Christine Manzari

Hooked by Christine Manzari
Publication date: February 3rd 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

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 Gia

Hooked is a great read.   I was hooked right from the beginning.  Hooked is told from the dual POVs of Huck and Cat.   I'm a big fan of dual POVs.  I loved getting into both of their heads.   Christine Manzari does a good job writing in the male and female views.

Cat or Cate is a great character.   She's not the relationship kind of girl.   For her love is a family thing and she doesn't let many people in because she doesn't want to risk a broken heart.   Cat is an artist and she works as a graphic designer.  She is also very athlete and even skateboards.

When we first meet Huck or Will, he has this sexy stalker vibe going on.   He watches her exercise on the beach.  Huck isn't sure if she is approachable or not but Cat breaks the ice and goes to him first. 

Cat's best friend Jay helps get the ball rolling behind Huck and Cat.  Jay is Cat's gay best friend.    I loved him, he brings some great things to the story.

Cat and Huck have great chemistry together.  There are a lot of things that they have to overcome before they can make a working relationship.  They have work issues, family issues, Huck's ex, and Cat's insecurities.   All that makes for a very interesting story.

It's a great read.  It keep me interested from beginning to end.  When reading I took time to read the chapter titles too, those are great and set the mood for the chapters.
