I give this book a 4.5 stars, i absolutely loved it !Cat,Cate,The wicked bitch of west coast was one of the best female characters i read about, she was hilarious with the right amount of snark and sass, for once in this genre i didn't have to wonder what made the guy fall in love with her because even i did and i'm picky.Jay was even better and i wish he was more in the book, his accidental 'friendship' with Huck was pure gold was a light read with an easy text and mesmerizing words, it was une [...]
Find this review and more at kimberlyfaye reads.After listening to my friend Ethan talk about Christine's books over and over again, I decided to jump on the opportunity to read and review this book. I am so very glad I did. It's absolutely one of my top books of the year so far – and I have a pretty good feeling it just might finish the year as one, too. I'm struggling to put my feelings about this book into words that will do it justice. It really was the perfect book at the perfect time for [...]
This book wasn't short. It was long , lots of details and events. I felt like I was living with the characters , walking through their ups and downs and cheering them on. Love is a funny thing. Once you decide someone is worthy of it, you have to trust that person not to break you. And some people -most people actually- aren't worthy of that trust. I've learned the hard way that it's just easier not to risk love. Broken hearts are too big of a pain in the ass.Cat isn't an easy woman to live with [...]
I don’t think this could have been a more aptly titled book because let me tell you I was HOOKED from page one until the very end. It was that good! Cat or Cate, which ever she is going by, was the perfect amount of snark and sass. I loved her! “What you need is to spread your wings and trust one of the good guys for once?” “And by wings do you mean legs?” I winked at him. She was strong, full of life, but unable to trust. Growing up with an alcoholic father really did a number on her. [...]
From start to finish, I was HOOKED on this book. Manzari has a fresh and unique writing style. She writes snarky and hilarious characters, and yet is able to create steam, sexual tension, and deep emotion from them at the same time. Hooked takes the reader on a journey through the relationship of Cat and Huck. Neither believe they want a relationship with the other, yet each gets more and more HOOKED.As the story-line progresses and conflicts drive Cat and Huck apart, Manzari weaves in a sensiti [...]
Received an ARC for an honest reviewRomantic Comedy at its finest. Hooked really entertained me. From the first page to the last, I was so into Huck and Cat's story. I laughed several times and I cried too. Huck and Cat's story was very enjoyable and at the same time, the sprinkle of hot scenes and the romance was very present. It was an easy read and I was even surprised at myself during the parts where I literally laughed out so loud then I kept giggling and giggling. A first read from Christi [...]
Hooked!!I am most definitely Hooked also! What a FAB book. I loved all the characters in the bookCat and Huck are definitely in my top 3 hottest couples! Christine is exceptional author.I read her books Deviation, Conviction, and now Hooked d I am a totally Hooked fan!
DNF @ 34%. I just didn't connect with either character, and didn't feel their connection to each other. I found myself skimming a lot because I was a little bored. I also lost my mom to cancer, so I wasn't feeling going through that process again. Sorry Ms.Manzari.
I am SOOO in love with this book! Christine's writing is so refreshing, and the book was AMAZING. Cat and Huck are witty and clever and so much fun to read. I wish I could buy copies of their story for everyone to read! This will definitely be one of my top reads of the year :)
So good - hot and steamy with deep elements of reality peppered in. A must read!!
I read Hooked roughly over a day in 1 sitting. I don't think I'd read anything by Christine before so it was a new author with no expectations. I really loved Cat/Cate's character. She was easy to relate too as I shared a fair few personality traits with her along with the same profession (When I first started working) and the tattoos as well. I felt a kin with her and understood the way she was, why she was that way and even her feelings at times too. I adored her mum. Lump in throat there! Huc [...]
Title: HookedAuthor: Christine Manzari Publication Date: February 3, 2015Source: Copy Given by Author and Tour OrganizerARA'S NOTE:When I read the blurb I thought that it was nothing I haven't read before. Like a story that would be easy to predict with characters that are nothing short of cliche. Here's what I had in mind: Leading lady is a woman pretending to be tough but is insecure in reality and likes to be dominated by the leading man. She also doesn't know what she wants to do with her li [...]
Graphic Designer Cat is a hoot and a half and she alone was worth reading the book, throw in the other characters and you have a story that is not only very funny but will most definitely have you hooked.A chance encounter, a friendly nudge (or is that a rather ungentlemanly push from a very pushy gay best friend) and you are face to face with someone that just might change your life.Cat loves nothing more than to hang out – it is when she is happiest just being free and spending time with her [...]
Full review here => afterdarkbooklovers/2015/0On paper, Cat and Huck are just too different to work. She’s a tattooed skater girl. He’s an all-American boy. They quickly dub each other Ms. Unafraid and Abercombie. And while they shouldn’t work, don’t tell that to their bodies.A mutual attraction brings them together, quickly leading to an impulsive first date. While these two steer clear of personal topics like family and work, something that will come back to bite them, they get to k [...]
Now available! For only $2.99Such a fun and delightful read! Just what I needed! First thing that came to mind when I finished was: "Need to pack my bags and get to Venice Beach! Swing some rings and maybe there'll be another Huck!"I loved Cat, Huck and Jay aka Cupcake (Cat's gay best-friend) :) The banter between all of them was off the charts!Cat's a great girl. Smart, funny and unafraid. She didn't have a great past but doesn't let anything deter her from having fun!"Don't get me wrong, just [...]
4.5 StarsI know it will sound so cliché, but I was completely hooked on Christine Manzari’s novel, Hooked. The characters were incredibly well developed and I absolutely loved the story line. It proved to not only be a romance, but a heartwarming tale of a woman’s journey to finding true strength and learning what it means to love someone.“He could ruin me in so many ways and not just my career. I feared he may have already ruined a piece of my heart.”One of the things I really apprecia [...]
Cat is every bit her name, feisty, confident and flirty. But she’s been burned too many times and is too busy dealing with her asshole boss to even consider getting into a relationship. However when she acknowledges a sexy, young man named Huck who has been watching her, she decides she could have a little fun. Huck is of another mind though and knows he wants a lot more from Cat but with work, family heart-ache and ex’s causing drama, will these two ever have a chance of being together? Or [...]
Hooked was a great story and I would recommend this book to many others. This book is told in dual POV's and has an HEA. I have to say when I decide to read a book by a author that I don't know very well I get excited, Christine Manzari knows how to write her steamy scenes and has a great sense of humor she has a way of making you feel like you are apart of the world of her characters. I really enjoyed reading this book about Huck and Kat. Kat is a very strong heroine in this book and doesn't ta [...]
* I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review. *I was definitely "Hooked" on this book right from the very start! I loved the story, the characters, the plot and the setting used in the book. The author grabs you and doesn't release you from the very start and she keeps the reader on the edge of their seat throughout the entire story. There are twists, turns, loops and curves that the reader couldn't begin to imagine and the author does all of this with a breakneck speed. Th [...]
This review and more onSo BookaliciousHooked is really the right title fort his book because from the very first page I was hooked. Once I started reading there was no way that I could put it down. Hooked is a fun read and overall it was light but it also touches on a heavier topic. And once I finished it I was left wanting more of Huck and Cat.Cat was a great female lead. She was strong and independent. And she was not the typical beautiful girl. Yes she was beautiful but also kind off a tomboy [...]
Hooked was a very fun and refreshing read. This is the first book I have ever read by Christine Manzari and it definitely won't be my last. I loved the connection between Cat, Huck and Jay.Cat is a smart witty girl who just likes to have fun. She works in a media firm as a graphic designer. When she is not at work she loves to go to the beach and to the skate park. One evening Cat and her best friend Jay are at the beach and Jay notices a guy staring at Cat. She isn't interested in a relationshi [...]
Reviewed by: AkeishaI 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.Characters:Cat was a diff [...]
Hooked is a fun read that will leave you in tears of laughter and heartache.The couple in the story is Cat and Huck; they meet one day while hanging out at the beach. They have a very passionate night together, but the next day Cat insists they go their separate ways. Little does she know that’s not so easy when she learn Huck’s true identity and that they’ll be spending more time together.I liked Cat from the very beginning. I loved how she was a bit of a tomboy, who loved to skateboard a [...]
Received through a /Firstreads giveaway"Hooked". Aptly named as I was hooked after the first chapter. Christine Manzari can certainly turn a phrase and paint a picture with the words she puts to paper. Be it the exchanges between Cat and love (or lust) interest, Huck, as they get to know each other or her relationship with bestie, Jay, Manzari's words pulled me along at a blistering pace as I chuckled, sighed and suffered with the characters she brought to life. The interaction between best frie [...]

So freaking good! I guess you could say I was Hooked😉 I absolutely loved Cat's character and Huck was perfectly swoon-worthy 😍 Jay is an incredible character and the plot line kept me on the edge of my seat. There was so much more depth in this book than one would expect from an NA or romance novel but I was intensely pleased with this story and look forward to reading more of the series😃
