Review: Hooked

Book Review: Hooked, by Kate Davies, 3 stars


Madison McIntyre loves the beach – the sun, the sand, a frosty drink by her side. But a beach with rainstorms, rocky ground, and the smell of fish? Not her first choice for an extended stay – especially when it’s under orders from her obnoxious boss. She has one month to prepare a resort plan the notoriously suspicious town will accept, or she’ll be out of a job. So she’s gone incognito in the hopes of succeeding where her coworkers have failed. What could go wrong?
Dylan Edwards loves living in Westhaven. He loves his charter fishing business, his little daughter, and the coastal town he calls home. He has no patience for big city snobs like the fish-out-of-water currently vacationing at his mom’s bed and breakfast. No matter how gorgeous she might be. Women like her always want to change things, just like his ex-wife. And he likes things just fine the way they are.
But Madison and Dylan can’t deny the sparks that fly whenever they’re together – as wild and untamed as the ocean itself. When the truth comes out, will their passion survive the storm?

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: May 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: I liked the plot of Hooked - actually, I loved the idea behind the plot, it had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, I think the rest of the book fell a bit short of that potential. The characters are not very well developed, some situations are not entirely realistic and there are too many cliches to mention. Madison had lots of pre-conceived ideas, some of them not always consistent. Dylan was more or less Ok, but sometimes behaves more like a teenager than a full grown man. And the whole town hall / idiotic boss issue is sorted out so easily it's a wonder there was ever a problem to start with. 

If you're looking for a quick, no strings attached, read with a happy ending, you may want to give it a try though. 

Happy readings,
