Miranda is an incredibly hard working busy woman that doesn’t find the time to date since she works two full time jobs and is putting herself through school. While working her job as a maid at a high end hotel Miranda finds herself extremely irritated when she meets hockey’s hottest bad boy, Jake Birch, in one of the suites while she’s cleaning. However after finding herself telling Jake off with his numerous requests instead of getting her fired he asks for her to become his personal housekeeper throughout his six week stay while his place is being remodeled.
Miranda immediately catches Jake’s eye since she is so completely different from the women he meets, she’s hardworking and quite feisty not putting up with him at all instead of being star struck. Unfortunately, while Jake is extremely taken with Miranda after meeting her he has a bit of a predicament since he is being forced to date his owner’s daughter after a drunken encounter with her previously.
Hooked is a fast paced, standalone, contemporary romance from Brenda Rothert. The story did get a tad predictable in nature with knowing about another relationship taking place with the male main character but it was still a fun read that didn’t dwell too much on the controversy this caused and instead mainly focused on the characters getting to know one another and taking a bit of time to do so.
I would warn that this one contains quite of bit of sex and language that may offend some readers that prefer a cleaner read. I would definitely recommend this one for those that don’t mind the language and sexual situations, especially to those who are fans of the sexy athletes.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
