Hooked by Karla Sorensen & Whitney Barbetti (5 STARS Review) RELEASE BLITZ! 

My Review:


Dark Romantic Comedy/Adult Romance

OH. MY. GOD! What did I just read!?!?!? It was AHMAZING!

One of the authors was describing it as campy, funny and just a different type of book and yes, yes it is! I seriously loved every second of this book. There were times it was hilarious, awkward, very serious and unbelievable yet believable! This read is a serious emotional roller coaster ride that I COULDN’T put down.

Seriously. I could NOT stop reading this book. It’s one of those books that you don’t even want to stop for a snack. THAT GOOD! The characters are so well-developed and easy to relate to and the plot is fast paced and captivating.

I absolutely love Adult Romances, Dark Romances and sometimes Romantic Comedies (Rom Com). Usually Rom Coms aren’t my thing. They tend to be cheesy and mildly annoying but this book was NOT like that at all. The seriousness of the dark aspects mixed with the romance and comedy was perfect, making such a fun story.

I know this review is vague but I can’t give away the story line. It’s too good to spoil. Check it out!


Title: Hooked

Authors: Karla Sorensen & Whitney Barbetti

Genre: Dark Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 23, 2017


X and I were probably doomed from the start.

That’s what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try

to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug

dealer, thank you very much. I’m turning over a new leaf and all that.

Which is why I should leave him alone.

Except he tempts me to do things I swore I’d stop doing. It’s that whole gruff,

grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something

about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don’t want that

feeling to end.

Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.

She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I

thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from

jail, I can’t quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when she’s trying

her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it’s myhouse

she’s burglarizing.

Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.

But that’s the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for

you—you don’t walk away when you should.

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. I’m a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.

I am a wife

to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for

nachos – especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell

(sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of

Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry


As a Navy

brat, I grew up all over the country, from California and up the east coast

from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we

have lots of potatoes and windmills.

I write

character-driven contemporary romance novels, heavy on the emotional

connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their

soul mates.
