REVIEW – HOOKED by BRENDA ROTHERT
This is my first read by Brenda Rothert and it definitely won’t be my last.
If you are a fan of sports romances this is one that should go on your TBR list immediately.
This book had me from start to end. I devoured it in one sitting and at the end of it I thought I wish there was more. The characters to me were so easy to love. Miranda is a hardworking woman focused on school and working two jobs to make ends meet. She has no desire for a relationship. Jake is the captain of his NHL Hockey team, woman flock to him.
I loved the progression of the relationship between these two. Not insta love, instant attraction yes and for me that made the story so much more enjoyable. They got to know each other and became friends first. There were a few chuckles along the way that I also loved.
Of course I am a sucker for drama and let me tell you there is a little of that in here and it comes in the form of a complete nuthouse named Hailey Hampton. Let’s just say she takes crazytown to a whole other level.
Overall I loved this book, an awesome Romance with some chuckles and a little sexiness. I will definitely be checking out other books by Brenda and I absolutely recommend this book.
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.
