Subtle scenes not tacky make this a love story you'll love to read
I voluntarily received an advanced readers copy from the publisher
While in many ways this was your typical rough and ready biker meets classy rich girl for a quick hook-up it was somehow more and that's mainly down to the characters.
Grace comes from an incredibly wealthy family having just broken up with her fiancé of two years she's driving to her sisters when her car breaks down, with no charge on her phone the only option open to her is a seedy looking bar.
Zach spots Grace the minute she enters and decides if she's looking to get down and dirty it's going to be with him. Grace only wants to use the phone but can't deny the instant scorching attraction she feels towards Zach.
Zach doesn't believe for one minute that her car has actually broken down he thinks her friends are waiting outside and she's after one thing and one thing only and that may as well be provided by him.
One quick one off hook-up turns into overnight and then the next day and.....well you'll have to read for the rest but I really enjoyed this and I'll certainly be reading the next one.
Zach is a member of the Viking Bastards MC and while the club is a huge part of his life it's not a huge part of this book, this is more of a romance than an MC.
Both Zach and Grace are interesting characters and when they originally meet they are both set on their own life paths but together they grow and the development of these characters was more than I expected from this book.
I voluntarily read a review copy kindly provided by NetGalley and Entangled Publishing
The two main characters Zach and Grace were both likable and they certainly shared some chemistry. Which did lead to a lot of hot moments. All of which I have to say were pretty spicy and varied and were well balanced throughout the story.
However I was expecting more of an MC element from this story. Not that the lack of it made it any the less enjoyable. It just honestly took me by surprise as there really was little relating to the Viking Bastards. Except for some brief mentions by Zach to Grace, and then towards the end when Zach spends some time at the club. But really 97% of this story is set away from the club and for me this is more of a good girl/bad boy from the wrong side of town story than anything, but it was still an entertaining read.
I would therefore happily recommend it to others especially if you are a fan of the bad boy/good girl trope or even if you are just looking for a good quick and hot read.

Good banter and down to earth characters. I'm off to 1-click the next book in this series 🙂
Between Grace’s eloquent (not toffee) comments and Zach’s unexpected reactions to her presence, I spent the entire time reading Hooked with a smile. It had so many aspects that I could relate to, whether it was the thrill of the moment or the astounded response to a situation. The banter was spontaneous, humorous and never felt juvenile or hyped up to set up a scene. This story could so easily have been a cheesy hook up, but it went beyond a raunchy read into a delectable adventure I am so excited I discovered.
Hooked by Christina Phillips is book 1 of her Viking Bastard's MC series. I have read her Grayson Brothers series and I have to say that I loved Hooked.
Grace Mulholland curses her luck when her car suddenly dies in front of the Odin's which is the Viking's bar. To make matters worse her phone is dead. so she has just broke off her engagement with Russell her fiance` but when she asks to use the phone the clubs sergeant-at-arms offers a phone and much more. One thing leads to another and he's giving her what she craves the most. Once they realize that there is something more to just sex and that they really want more than a hook up we find out that Grace wants to open a Cupcake shop not run her father's hotel chain. We also get more insight to Zach and how his parents death has made him into the man that he is. Can Grace convince her father that she doesn't want to run his business? But most of all can Zach and Grace take what they have and become soul mates?
Zach Reynolds was born to be part of the Viking Bastard MC as his family were one of the founding members. But when a beautiful red head shows up at Odin's on a stormy night little does he know that Grace is more than a one night stand and will soon become someone he wants forever. He helped raise his siblings, Gage and Kat as well as being the sergeant at arms for the MC but he soon realizes that Grace is much more than one night. But will her very rich parents become a wedge between them or can they overcome the obstacles put in their way ?
I sure hope that there are more books in this series because this was a fantastic book. I'd give the book a high 4.8 stars.
Zach's character felt very overdone and was very much like a caricature of a biker in a romance story. I didn't find anything about him that drew me to him and had me wanting for him to be with Grace and for them to get their HEA. I know I'll probably be in the minority when I say this but I'm not a fan of the way he handled Grace during their first encounter. It put a bad taste in my mouth that I just couldn't get past over the course of the story. While many will probably find it sexy, I found it degrading.
I love the angst and the drama we typically get with Biker books. I enjoy the dynamics of the club, the H and his brother's and how that works with his relationship with the h but that was lacking here. Im not sure if the story had been more drawn out of it would have changed how I felt or not.
I will say, though, that I loved the cover. I'm a bit of a cover snob but when I first saw this one I was in love with it. Throw that together with the blurb and I was in heaven. Unfortunately, in the end, this one wasn't my cup of tea. However, I'm sure there will be readers out there who really enjoy it.
(Bumped from 2 to 3 because I loved the cover and blurb).
