When Native American Fredricka ‘Fred’ Oday is invited to become the only girl on the school’s golf team, she can’t say no. This is an opportunity to shine, win a scholarship and go to university, something no one in her family has done.

But Fred’s presence on the team isn’t exactly welcome — especially not to rich golden boy Ryan Berenger, whose best friend was kicked off the team to make a spot for Fred.

But there’s no denying that things are happening between the girl with the killer swing and the boy with the killer smile...

  This is another book where I didn't get what I was expecting. The cover is cute and it portrays a good humored, sexy kind of book's not. Hooked sort of failed me if I may say so. It sort of disappointed me. I don't mean to be harsh--never my intention--it just wasn't what I wanted and hoped.

  The characters weren't developed enough. Ryan was supposed to be somewhat broken. The rich teen that got whatever he wanted but his home life was kind of messed up. Too much pressure and not enough love. He was expected to get the good grades and be perfect. He was probably the only character I really felt pulled through with the authors inventions but even that wasn't a 100% feeling. He was a total ass hat from the beginning and didnt prove he had enough soft side to make me love him. He was just one or the other. It kind of gave a bipolar feel to him. I liked Fred every now and then. I appreciate her for going out and doing what everyone said she couldn't do. She was strong in that way. She didnt let what people say intimidate her into quitting and running away with her tail between her legs.

  I guess now that I think about it I liked both characters...individually....just not together. I didn't feel there love. It was just sudden. One minute they hate each other and all of a sudden they feel love?? No ease into it people!! There is immediate attractions and then there is warming up and of course hatred. Immediate and hatred don't go together. Give us a reason they fell In love. Something true and a bit more deep then "oh well I guess she/he is cute, maybe ill like him then" I don't know I just wasn't feeling it.

  Liz is a great writer I can tell. I think she just needs to work out her few kinks. This could have been great if we were shown more depth. More history more something!! I really wanted to love this book but I couldn't. It was good but not great. It was missing those little details that make a book great. Hooked is a good fluff book. It was worth the short little read. If you need a filler book go ahead and give it a shot but I'm not going to jump up and down egging you to read this. Go on and give it a chance. Ill be giving a chance with book two!

3 of 5 stars!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!! :D


  1. I like this book and I loved knowing Fred, but I just hated Ryan. He didn't have a backbone to stand up to his friends and I didn't like that. Also Fred and Ryan were never together as a couple and the story never felt like a romance to me for that reason. I'm really looking forward to Sam & Riley's book because I loved that little teaser at the end.

    1. I don't read teasers haha so I have no clue what to expect but I want to see what Fichera has in store for them! :D I liked Sam. I'm glad you had a better go at it than I did. I was really hoping to like it. Sadly, it just fell short for me :(

      Thanks for stopping by! :)
