Hooked By Love {Book Review}

Title: Hooked by Love {A Bellevue Bullies Novel}

Author: Toni Also 

Genre: New Adult/Sports Romance

Book Description:

Things are out of control for the Sinclair boys! With two already in the NHL, Jace Sinclair is ready to follow in his brothers’ HUGE skates in the last Bellevue Bullies novel…

Jace Sinclair here, and I’m amazing. There is no other way to describe me. I am the leading scorer for the Bellevue Bullies, I’m the captain, and people love me: my family, my teammates, my coach, and the NHL. This is my last year in college–I already have one foot in the draft. Hockey keeps me warm even when it’s freezing. It’s always there when nothing else is. And it pushes me to be the best I can be. It’s my one and only love.

That is, until I see her against a tree with a guitar.


The last thing I wanted was to meet anyone. My heart is on the bench because of what happened with my parents, and I don’t want that for myself. I don’t want to be hurt by anyone. I can’t give them that power.
But my heart is begging for ice time, and I can’t control it around her.

* * *
I’ve always been in the background. No one has ever had time for me and that’s fine; I’ve learned to cope. Coming from a family where hockey is life, the last thing I want is some big, burly hockey player charging at me. I don’t have time for it, but Jace Sinclair isn’t one to be deked around.

I didn’t want to meet anyone. I didn’t want to end up freezing the puck with him. It’s not what I want.

I have demons.

I have issues.

Living in the shadows, no one even knew until it was too late. But Jace wants to know. He wants me.

And that scares me the living hell out of me.

We were so worried about what would happen if we fell, but we never thought what could happen in the process of falling. We never saw it coming. But it’s here, and the repercussions are not pretty.

We should have known that there is no way out of the zone when you are being Hooked by Love.

My Review:

I have been sitting here all day trying to come up with the right words for my review for this book. And I'm still trying to come up with the right ones. I will admit this that I missed Jayden's book in this  series. 

But I just have to say oh the feels in this book. There were so many emotions reading this book. From happy and funny, to big old tears and wanting to throw my kindle across the room. 

I have to say I think Jace stole my heart in this book. In fact I know he stole my heart. I thought Jude had been my favorite. But Jace definitely took over that spot. He was sweet, caring, loyal, faithful and protective. And you could see how much Jace had grown from the first book in this series to this book.

I just adored Avery in this book. She's running from her past and her family. She has a ton of demons on her shoulders. And my heart just broke for her. 

I have to say I'm so glad I had the chance to review this book. It definitely is my favorite of the series. 

I'm giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5!!!!
