BOOK INFORMATION: HOOKED by Brenda Rothert is now LIVE!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.
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.
Reese's Review:Hooked was amazing. I was rooting for the characters the whole time and just fell in love with the characters from page one.
Miranda is poor and poor can get working two jobs to put herself through school. While cleaning a bedroom one day she meets Jake a stuck-up hockey player who must have everything exactly as he wants it. Miranda is not putting up with that and gives Jake an attitude he’s never seen before from a woman. Now Jake can’t get her out of his mind and knows he has to up his game to make Miranda his. Too bad one bad bj would wind him in deep trouble with his team because now the bosses’ daughter is forcing him to go out with her.
Ah this book was sooo good. Miranda is trying to put herself through school and has little time for a social life. Because of this Jake and her end up actually dating instead of just having sex all the time. They become closer and closer through slowly dating each other. Jake despite being a bit of a player was a sweetheart who cared about his team and Miranda.
I don’t want to say too much but I loved this story. I loved the actual romance between character wasn’t just about sex. The characters were so cute and I loved how realistic they were. The whole story was phenomenal and I am so happy I got to read about their love story.
