We would love for you to join us in celebrating the release for HOOKED by Christine Manzari! 

Title: Hooked
Author: Christine Manzari
Age: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release date: February 3, 2015

If you ask the confident and snarky skater girl, and she’s in the mood to share, she’ll tell you her name is Cat. She might even tell you that she’s hooked on graffiti, 80s movies, and having fun—the riskier the better. Cat will share a good time with you, but she won’t ever trust you enough to share her heart. It’s protected by secrets and she’d like to keep it that way.

Cat knows one thing for certain: Love isn’t really her thing.

If you ask the confident and rich pretty boy, he might tell you his name is Huck. He might even tell you he loves a challenge and is used to getting his way. He won’t tell you that his life is a mess because he risked his heart by trusting the wrong girl. Huck is ready for a change, he just wasn’t ready to get hooked on someone like Cat.

Huck knows one thing for certain: Love hasn’t done him any favors, but Cat just might be worth the risk.

Cat and Huck think a one-night stand seems harmless, but when all the little secrets they didn’t share turn out to be toxic truths, they realize how easily a one-night stand (or a few) could ruin everything.

The thing is, you can be ruined in more than one way. Once you’re HOOKED, what wouldn’t you risk for the chance at more?


Hooked was a very fun and refreshing read. This is the first book I have ever read by Christine Manzari and it definitely won't be my last. I loved the connection between Cat, Huck and Jay.

Cat is a smart witty girl who just likes to have fun. She works in a media firm as a graphic designer. When she is not at work she loves to go to the beach and to the skate park. One evening Cat and her best friend Jay are at the beach and Jay notices a guy staring at Cat. She isn't interested in a relationship but does enjoy a good time with a hot guy. Jay triple dog dares her to go up and talk to the mystery guy. She asks him a few questions but doesn't reveal anything about herself. She tells him that she will be at the skate park the next morning if he is interested in learning more about her. They decide to go to lunch together and ask each other more question but they never reveal any personal information. Things between them heat up quickly and they end up spending a hot night together. Cat decides she enjoys spending time with Huck and wants to get to know him better. What will happen when Cat and Huck's real worlds collide? Will she still want him in her life or will she run from him as fast as she can?

Huck is looking for some positive changes in his life. He was involved with a woman that he loved but she didn't feel the same way about him. He is very attracted to Cat and loves spending time with her. When tragedy strikes in Cat's life she tries to push him away but he isn't going away so easily. He will do anything to prove to Cat that he truly cares for her and that they can be in a happy relationship and it doesn't matter what other people think. Will he be able to get through to Cat or will he end up alone and miserable again?

"Tell me what's going on in that beautiful head of yours, Cat. Because I like you. I think I've made that pretty clear. I don't want you pulling away again without giving us a chance. I want to know all of those things you keep off-limits. I want you to let me in, and I don't want you to regret any of this."

I really enjoyed the witty banter between the characters. I loved the secondary characters and feel they added lots of depth to the storyline. I look forward to reading more from Christine.

About the Author:

The first thing Christine does when she's getting ready to read a book is to crack the spine in at least five places. She wholeheartedly believes there is no place as comfy as the pages of a well-worn book. She's addicted to buying books, reading books, and writing books. Books, books, books. She also has a weakness for adventure, inappropriate humor, and coke (the caffeine-laden bubbly kind). Christine is from Forest Hill, Maryland where she lives with her husband, three kids, and her library of ugly spine books.
