Review of Hooked On You by Brittany Anne

“Sometimes, you need to fight for what you want in life.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 217 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:

They were each other’s biggest mistakes. Hers, for letting him in, and his, for letting her go.

Seven years after what was supposed to be the best night of Victoria’s life, she is finally ready to return home and face the memories that she spent so long running away from. She is certain she has moved on, but the minute she sees Gabe Matthews, all of the feelings she repressed come right back up to the surface. Gabe says he’s changed, but can she ever truly trust the man who shattered her heart all those years ago?

Gabe Matthews was not a good man, but he had spent the last three years doing everything he could to redeem himself. When the only girl he ever truly cared for walks back into his life, he is faced with the ultimate test: do the right thing and let her go, like he tried to do so many years ago, or be selfish and make her his. He wants to be the good guy, but sometimes, chemistry just can’t be controlled, and Gabe will be damned if he lets Victoria walk out of his life a second time.

***

This book contains mature content and language, including (but not limited to) sexy romance scenes and plenty of f-bombs. You’ve been warned.

Mindy’s Review:

Gabe Matthews has spent the last several years trying to be a better man. Losing his sister at a young age made him get sober. He feels it is his fault for not being a good example. Gabe has made some bad decisions in his life and all he wants to do is find happiness.

Victoria knows all about Gabe and who he is. When he walks into her life again she tries to keep her feelings suppressed and remember that her heart was shattered by him all those years ago.

Gabe and Victoria have a rocky past. She was in love with him for so long. That is until he slept with her and then acted like nothing happened the next day. Victoria knew not to get involved with her best friends older brother but her heart lead the way.

This book deals with loss, addiction and love. I really felt for the characters. I could feel their pain while talking about Gabe’s sister. I love how this book was written (although it was predictable). Feeling like you are part of the characters is what really draws you in.

Review of Hooked On You (Chicago Rebels #4) by Kate Meader

“Club Chase-Bangs-a-Rebel”

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance

Book Length (Est.): 384 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:

The steamy Chicago Rebels series returns with this racy and sassy tale of embittered hearts, second chances, and going for the goal—on and off the ice.

Violet Vasquez never met her biological father, so learning he left his beloved hockey franchise—the Chicago Rebels—to her is, well, unexpected. Flat broke and close to homeless, Violet is determined to make the most of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.

Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander…but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.

For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from Simon & Schuster – Gallery Books in exchange for an honest review*

The chemistry between Bren and Violet has been entwined throughout the pages of all three previous books, getting to finally read their story was the icing on the series.

Violet was the mystery Chase child, conceived during a one night stand. She didn’t know her sisters and didn’t really care to…until she had to. Sister nights, as awkward as they were in the beginning, became the bonding time the sisters needed in order to really love one another.

Her first day in Chicago lands her in a bar next to Bren, she’s wanted him since that first day.

Bren’s life went uncontrollably down hill because of his unhappiness and drinking. Luckily his team gave him a chance to clean it up and be the Captain they needed. His focus is on the game, his team, and missing his daughters…not the captivating woman who is always around.

His first day out of rehab landed him opposite some not so happy fans and a beautiful woman who tempted his restraint beyond its limitations…and no matter how badly he wanted Violet he couldn’t tempt his sobriety or his job.

When push comes to shove Violet is the one who comes through for Bren and his daughters. She’s the one he counts on when there’s no one else and when she finally lets down her guard he’ll be the one she learns to depend on. Hooked On You is a powerful story that proves love, when you let it in, can conquer anything. It was the perfect ending to the Chicago Rebels series.
