 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?

***Stephenee, #NerdGirlSteph 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.  The story flows so smoothly that the reader never sees the next twist until it has already happened.  There was no way to predict what Author Christine Manzari will do next in this story!

Cat and Huck, Will and Cate, Shitstick and the Wicked Bitch of the West Coast….the characters that are in this story will leave you laughing, crying and wanting more.  Jay is also an important part of this story and may be the readers favorite right from the very start.  As the reader delves into the story they will love, hate and love all of the characters at least once while wanting them to be their best friends in real life.  The author makes the characters likable, real and fun.  She has a banter between them that is without a doubt a conversation that everyone has had with their friends at some point throughout their lives.  She makes the reader want to be friends with all of them and the reader can’t help but want them to have a happily ever after life.

The story is a fun read that will also leave the reader wanting to spend the weekend in Venice Beach.  They can easily picture themselves there with friends.  The story will leave the reader wanting to spend more time with the characters and they will think about all of them and the story long after they have finished reading.  This was my first book by Author Christine Manzari, but it will not be my last! I enjoyed everything about the story from start to finish. She has a unique story and a fun one too!

Make sure you add this story to your TBR list!  You won’t be sorry for a minute!  Enjoy this one – It’s a fun, fast moving read!
