I loved Jake.
A sexy hockey player with many layers unknowingly waiting for the right woman to come along and peel them away.
Hooked is the kind of read that has you swooning, a fairy-tale romance, Cinderella to princess or like Vivien in Pretty woman, Miranda unexpectedly meets her white knight and prince charming, only this prince comes in the form of man-whore, playboy, famous hockey player Jake Birch.
Miranda, she's sassy, has no filter with her words, she works two jobs to pay rent and study's hard, I loved her character.
She first meets Jake when cleaning the penthouse suit at her hotel job, her sassy ways, tell it like it attitude and take no crap demeanor instantly attracts Jake.
I was immediately pulled into Jake and Miranda's story, told in dual pov's, the writing style and descriptive words allowed me to follow their journey with ease and I loved every sentence,chapter and page.
Hooked is an all round balanced read, I laughed, swooned at the heartwarming moments and fanned myself at the hot scenes.
"You're like this freight train of amazing that just came flying toward me out of the nowhere"
"A train? I'm like a train"
He looks up at the ceiling.
"Yeah, I'm shit at sweet-talking, okay?"
"Well try again"
Hooked is a recommended lighthearted read leading to a hea.
My first read by Brenda Rothert and looking forward to reading more.
From the author of the On the Line and Fire on Ice hockey romance series comes a sultry novel featuring a brooding NHL player who’s hell on skates—and the no-nonsense woman who forces him to clean up his act.
Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?
Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.
Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
