She’s in high heels; he wears hiking boots.
Can these two opposites make romance in Metlin work?
Tayla McKinnon is not a small town girl. The fashion blogger moved to Metlin with two goals in mind: help her friend start a book store and have a little fun. A year later, Tayla has made new friends, successfully launched INK, and is ready for a new challenge. Too bad she can’t get a certain rock-climbing, comic book geek off her mind.
Jeremy Allen has been playing the long game with Tayla, even though the avid outdoorsman was certain she was the one from the minute he set eyes on her. They may have different tastes, but their chemistry is undeniable.
When a job opportunity from a new fashion start-up lands in her inbox, Tayla takes it as a sign. She’s not meant for a small town, even though her best friend and her inconvenient crush are trying to convince her otherwise.
Jeremy can’t believe Tayla would be willing to leave her new life behind, but maybe he’s been playing it too cool. Summer in Metlin can sizzle, which gives Jeremy an excuse to turn up the heat.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
When I read the first book in the 7th and Main series Ink, I knew this was going to be a very good series. Hooked does not disappoint! Not only do we get to witness the chemistry (hot & off the charts) between Jeremy and Tayla we get drawn into their feelings of who they are and what they each want out of life. They are two very different people and the journey they take to get where they belong is entertaining and has you hoping they can find their HEA. Getting to visit with Emme & Ox and some of the others from Ink was a bonus. Can't wait for the next book in the series!
I officially nominate Metlin for the Best, Quirkiest, Unique, Most Entertaining & Endearing small City/Town in the USA! I mean any town that has a Martian Taco Restaurant needs to be tops on that list! This return to Metlin, CA featured Tayla - Emmie's Best Friend and Big City Girl & Jeremy - Boomerang Local who runs the Comic & Game Emporium & doubles as "HOT" mountain-man yummy-ness on the side! Loved Them! Loved Their Banter, the Tension and all the flawed, hot-mess-ness that made them perfect for each other. Loved Jeremy's Plan of Attack, his calm coolness on the out-side, His sneak attacks on Tayla's protective walls. Loved that he was behind her 100% even if that meant they didn't end up together. Also, loved all the other characters that made this town so captivating and eclectic. I was provided an Advanced Reader Copy for an honest review.
