I like my sex dirty and disposable. I'm not into commitment or chicks who want more than one night. My brothers and club come first, second, and last.

Until she walks into my life. Classy, rich, and so out of my league it's crazy. A week together should get her out of my system, but this good girl is so bad when we're all alone. I can't get enough of her.

I don't do forever, but she's hooked me so bad that I don't ever want to let her go. Except there's no way a princess can live in my world, and I sure as hell won't live in hers...

Loved this one so hard! Hooked is book one in Christina Phillips’ Viking Bastards MC series, and I was simply blown away by this romantic and edgy romance. Usually, MC stories are hit or miss, and this one definitely is a mega hit. This is pure one-night fling, opposite attract romance at its finest. Zach is part of the Viking Bastards MC, and he looks the part with a heavy beard and long hair. One night, in walks a woman who couldn’t be more different from him. Or more unexpected. Oooh, boy. The chemistry! Grace’s car breaks down, her phone battery is dead, and her only refuge to call for help is in a seedier bar on a dark street. She lands herself in the Viking Bastards territory and catches the eye of a hot, demanding biker. But Grace has been burned, too, and she tries to keep it light and take a walk on the wilder side for once. I couldn’t stop giving this book heart eyes. Emotion seeps off the page and makes you really feel for these two. They interact every other page together and it’s an organic journey that pulls you in until the very end. It doesn’t hurt that they both just keep surprising the other. And the sexual attraction is instant and intense. My god, is there an Alpha in Zach. It just worked for me on every level. I highly recommend this explosive novel that whittles the story down to romance at its very core. I'm a fan. 5 stars!

Hooked was a quick fun read. It was not concentrated on the MC life so the MC in the title is a little misleading of you are wanting a full on MC read. I did not mind it though. I do not think the book would have the same feel if it did. The back and forth of trying to convince themselves if this is right or wrong are they doing was not over the top, it was just right. Each character learned from each other. Whether it was to follow your dreams or going outside of your comfort zone. It had a smidge angst. It had a splash of drama. It had a pint of opposites attract. It had a gallon of wrong side of tracks. It had a handful of sex. Side note: The author is based in Australia and some of her lingo slipped into the book even though the setting was in California. They are not far off that you would not be able to understand what she meant. It was quicke for me to pick it up since I was a lot of Aussie TV.

Holy wowza what an amazing book! Hooked is sensational. Zach and Grace are completely adorable and I am so excited I got to read about their love story. Zach is used to having any girl he wants, any time he wants. He doesn’t have plans to settle down with one woman because all he needs is his club. Then Grace walks in to his families’ bar, soaking wet and asking for a phone and all he knows is he wants her. Grace just broke off her two-year engagement when her car broke down in front of a bar on the “bad side of town.” Meeting a hunky biker who thinks her asking for a phone is a come on she throws caution to the wind and ends up spending the night with him, then the weekend. Soon they’re spending more and more time together for more than just sex, but they’re from two different worlds and aren’t sure how to handle that. Zach and Grace are so cute together. I like how Zach while probably very rough and tough since he’s an MC, I liked how sweet and nice he could be for Grace. I liked how he struggled to understand her world sometimes and how Grace operated, but he kind of just went with the flow to be with her. Grace is so cute. I like how despite her and Zach’s obvious differences she didn’t care about any of that besides being with Zach. Hooked is an adorable and smoking hot read if you could put those two things together. The relationship between Zach and Grace is so sweet, but the sexy times are a blazing’. Go check this book out ASAP, because it is glorious.

From the moment the book started with Chrissy walked into Odin, a MC bar, needing a phone since her Mercedes broke down. I was hooked. Zach thought she was really there to get lucky with a "bad boy" and is shocked to find out she's telling the truth! He convinces her to stay at his place while he fixes her car. He has NEVER had a girl stay overnight...and then again...and then again. It is a shock to everyone, including Zach! This was such a great MC read but when it's written by Christina, it's not a surprise! My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.

4 “I’m here, that should tell you something” Stars Hooked is a lovely, light and fun romance. I practically read it in one sitting, and it had me smiling from start to finish. Hooked is a great story, what it isn’t is a Biker romance. Ok, it is in the sense that Zach, the hero, is part of an MC, he wears a cut and there are small mentions of club associated life. But that’s the extent of it, there is no club business or action of any kind. Sorry, there’s definitely sexy action, and that is super-hot, just no other kind of action. A classy chick, Grace, walks into a biker bar. Her car died in the middle of a storm at night and her phone was kaput too. After being the dutiful eldest daughter working in the family company and dating the family approved guy, she sees Zach and after his forward come-on just goes for it. Zach the badass biker hunk is quite taken by the uppity redhead bombshell. And one hook up doesn’t seem to be enough to get her out of his system. When they start to spend more and more time together, will Grace walk away from her family’s expectations and do what (and who) she really wants for once? Will Zach’s carefree-biker persona get in the way of the best thing that ever happened to him besides his club? As I said, Hooked was a great romance. It had sweet, it had steamy and some sexy hot. Zach was a typical biker dude used to plenty of easy women hanging on him. I really enjoyed how the author let us witness the gradual change to his feelings, or more accurately his gradual acknowledgment of said feelings. At times his conversations with himself were hilarious. Grace I liked too, her eldest child syndrome (how she put it) did get a bit on my nerves, and a little more open communication with her family would have been best. I also loved how the author handled her feelings and the way she was always open about her lack of experience with Zach, making her quite refreshing in this regard. Again, if you go in expecting a tough, action-packed Biker romance you will not find what you’re looking for. What I got was a really good, wonderful story that had me smiling from the start until the very end and left me with a happy glow. I’ll be eagerly waiting for the next in the series…. Although had there been an epilogue I would have been much more glowy. *I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book*

Zach will leave you speechless with his blunt words and animal tendencies. Grace is his addiction and he's her temptation. Every wicked thought that pops into my head could not describe how sultry this couple could be. Ms. Phillips heats it up for sure.

This is not your hardcore biker book but it does give you a hot alpha man who is coming to terms that a woman can actually touch his heart. He is used to women touching everything but his heart so this is all new territory to him. Zach felt an attraction to Grace the moment she walked in to a biker bar that night. Things couldn’t go worse for Grace that rainy night when she finally had enough courage to dump her fiancé, she gets lost after a detour, then her car breaks down in a bad neighborhood, and her phone is dead. She has no choice but to walk into this seedy bar hoping to use a phone in order to get help. It just so happens her help comes in the form of a hot, sexy guy wearing a biker’s cut and is covered in tats. What better way to get over her breakup than to take a walk on the wild side with this sexy as hell biker; it’s not like she will see him tomorrow. Grace is tired of being the nice, rich girl who has had her life mapped out for her by her family and ex-fiancé. What will one night of down and dirty sex matter? It’s not like anyone will find out, right? This is a book will steam up your windows and will captivate you with the path that Zach and Grace take. This is a romantic read with a little bit of dirty thrown in. I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley for a freely given honest review.

Great MC read. I was hooked from beginning to end, Zach and Grace have a steamy chemistry and I really liked the story. The story has plenty of drama and suspense and the sex is steamy. A really good MC Read.
mamalovestoread22 More than 1 year ago
Zach comes from a long line of leather clad men and motorcycles, it's the only life he has known, and damn sure the only life he wants to live. He is as tough and arrogant as they come, he doesn't do love, feelings or relationships, and his entanglements with the opposite sex are usually one night and done. The women who come knocking know the score, accept the terms, get what they came for and leave, and that is the way he likes to keep it, that is until a certain sexy rich girl stumbles into his world. To say that they are opposites attract is a complete understatement, in normal circumstances, neither one of them would survive in each other's worlds, but for some reasons their bodies don't realize that... they can't get enough of one another. So, what started as a quick little pool table rendezvous winds up being on the borders of forever, and it scares the hell out of both of them... and it leaves them wondering, can they really find common ground and make this little arrangement last? Or are they kidding themselves? This book was something else, a seriously sexy something else, from the moment I saw the cover I was "hooked," and the farther I delved into Zach and Grace's the more addicted I became, I just could not stop reading... I had to know if they could find a way to make things work!! Going in I knew Ms. Phillips has a knack for writing hot little reads, but she really surprised me with this one, these two had me feeling the flames, their story was so hot, every encounter they shared was filled with smoldering intensity, unbridled passion, & a scorching chemistry that had my tablet on the verge of melting several times!! When Zach walked into my world I knew I was in trouble, the man exudes this undeniable sex appeal, mesmerizing dominating power, and this alpha to the core swagger that that draws you in....I mean WOW!!! I highly recommend you make a point to pick this book up, the minute Zach walks into your world he'll have you at his mercy, and keep you completely entranced long after the last page is turned!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.

I absolutely loved this booked!! It's a super steamy and sexy bad boy meets good girl story. He's a rough biker, she's a spoiled rich girl. Together they just work. No woman has ever gotten to Zach but from the time he first sees Grace he knows he has to have her. What Grace thinks will be a one time walk on the wild side suddenly turns into so much more. I highly recommend this book but if you're looking for a down and dirty MC read, this isn't it. This is definitely on the fluffy side of the MC genre but it is a fantastic read.
LynnB888 More than 1 year ago
4 1/2 STARS! I loved this book! Yes, it was your typical "dirty talking biker devours pour little rich girl" story and it was all about sex, sex, sex ... and that's WHY I loved it!!! He might have been a rough biker before he met her, but for her, he was a giant teddy bear. They were sweet together. Don't get me wrong, they were burn up the sheets HOT too, but there was a special connection there. Looking forward to more in the series! BTW ... If you're looking for the down and dirty behind the scenes MC business type of book, you won't find it here ... but you will find a very sexy dominant biker dude who likes what he sees and takes it. Zach Reynolds loves his MC and his family ... other than that, he couldn't care less about anything else. And then she walks into his favorite hangout ... alone, gorgeous, and way out of his league. She's going to be his! Grace Mulholland might not be satisfied with her life, but she never expected a huge, tattooed tough guy to be what made her life complete! She can't deny the sex is out of this world ... the best she's ever had by far ... but seriously, can she really see this guy in her world forever? Maybe!
