Tiffinie Helmer certainly has a way with her stories she sets in Alaska. I have to say , it certainly is one place I’d love to visit one day. Being a Fisherwoman herself, fishing the Alaskan seas, we can see as a reader, Tiffinie’s passion for what she does. She puts forth enough vivid details, to give the reader exactly what they want, without to much and supplies us with an array of enough in-depth surroundings to get a gist of where the story is set, and what is entailed when Sonya fishes the Alaskan waters. Hooked will definitely have you hooked till that last page, filled with suspense, romance, and a killer on the loose, I was anticipating who it was and what was going to happen. I certainly was on the edge of my seat. The romance – suspense, and intrigue was well executed to give the reader enough of everything in this story. Garrett is a fish cop – ooops a trooper ( lol ) and a hot sexyliscioius one at that ( grins ) – and upon meeting Sonya he was starry eyed and curious. It seems that with Sonya’s on a mission to make this the best season yet, someone is out to sabotage her boat and kill her. Garrett takes it upon himself to keep an eye on her, and this is where the sparks begin. The chemistry between Garrett and Sonya is smoking hot – I enjoyed the banter – the passion and my favourite quote * Ready to board * Grins. I loved Sonya’s collection of fish attire = the different sayings some where really clever and I had to cackle to myself along the way. Tiffinie Helmer has created a story that is both emotionally engaging and delightfully entertaining, suspenseful, riveting, passion filled and downright on the edge of your seat. It will carry readers along effortlessly keeping them intrigued till the very end. I have to say I am left wandering about a certain few aspects , but the author has informed me ( quiet ) vaguely ( lol ) I will find out in the next book.. This author does such an amazing job bringing her characters to life and making her readers care about them, root for them and want to know more about them. Other aspects of the book are served as enhancements of the Alaskan wilderness. Breathtakingly beautiful and wild and untamed in many aspects. A must read series. ! I eagerly await Aiden’s book * Shiver * September can’t come fast enough –

Great novel! Mystery, intrigue, and romance. Fish and Wildlife Ranger Garrett spars with feisty fisherwoman, Sonya, who is casting her net in the male-dominated fishing industry on the rough and tumble seas of Alaska. Garrett is in charge of maintaining the peace among the fishermen, while Sonya's struggling to keep her head above water this fish season as she dodges a mysterious killer wreaking havoc on the high seas. This story has struggles, suspense, romance, and murder all mixed in with vivid imagery of beautiful Alaskan wilderness. The author has firsthand experience fishing the Alaskan waters and it shows in this thrilling, well-written story.

This has to be my favorite Tiffinie Helmer book so far, and that's saying something. Sonya is strong and sexy, and the perfect match for Garrett. Ms. Helmer has a fabulous way of weaving gripping suspense into her stories, and her Alaskan settings are both beautiful and compelling.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Can't express how much I loved this book. The characters pull you into all their adventures and dramas. I felt as if I was in the story and living all the events. Bristol Bay Alaska and fishing are dear to my heart and Tiffinie portrayed he summer fishing in such great detail, I could almost hear the sounds and smell the smells that I associate with fishing in Alaska. I felt for all the characters, laughed and cried. All the emotions that a great book brings.

I love this book! I enjoy all of her books, but this one especially. I'm a third generation Alaskan and live in the Aleutians not in Bristol Bay, but still relatively close to where this book is set it's such a huge state. I've never read books where the people dress like we do, talk like we do even shop where we do! It's so fun. But Tiffinie makes life in Alaska adventurous and sexy too! That's an amazing feat. Hooked takes place during the famous Bristol Bay salmon season and gives the reader such insight into real life in the "the Bay". I've never been to the area except to fuel our planes to or from Anchorage. It's like real life in Alaska, only more exciting!

It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve read HOOKED by Tiffinie Helmer but I can still remember everything about this book. HOOKED is the second book from the Romance on the Edge series, EDGE being the first Book. While HOOKED can be read as a total stand-alone, I would high recommend reading EDGE. Not only does it take place in one of my most favorite area in Alaska, Homer, it is another fantastic enthralling romance story. Ms. Helmer does such a magnificent job describing the area that you will feel like you have actual been there yourself and the suspense will keep you on the “EDGE” of your seat! OK…back to Hooked, this time Ms. Helmer takes her readers west of Homer, towards the Bering Sea. Yes, this is the same place the popular TV show Deadliest Catch is filmed, only this time the Captain of the fishing boat is a young women, Sonya Savonski. Her family has been fishing these waters her whole life and now she is ready to prove that she has what it takes to fish with the Big Boys. Sonya is no fool, she knows exactly how dangerous these waters can be, she lost her parents and twin sister many years ago to the deadly waters. The story opens with Sonya picking up her fishing crew, her grandparents, from the tiny remote airport. Along with her grandparents, the small airplane also had another passage, Garrett Hunt (who we met briefly in Book one, Edge). Of course, grandpa zeroed in on him almost instantly as a potential husband for his granddaughter. The moment Sonya and Garrett meet, the chemistry between them starts to sizzle, until Sonya discovers that Garrett is a “Fish Cop”. Alaska State Troopers and Fisherman have a long history of not playing nice together, so imagine Sonya’s horror to find out her attraction is to the enemy. Not only does Sonya have her hands full with her growing desire for the fish Cop, there is Aidan, the object of her past affections. His family has been coming to the Bering Seas every year for as long as Sonya’s family. Therefore, in a sense, Aidan and Sonya grew up together. They had a summer romance the last year that ended badly after Sonya informed Aiden she planned to captain her own ship this summer. Now Aiden has every intent on making it up to her and show Sonya that he is a different man, willing do whatever it takes to get her back in his arms. Sonya is one headstrong, independent, and very capable woman, who totally has what it takes to captain a ship and keep up with the “good old boys club”, 'til one by one mysterious accidents start happening. Can you guess who is called in to investigate these accidents? Yes, our hero Garrett. Watching these two characters go head to head was a sheer joy. I love to see women who can stand her ground, even if she is being a bit pig headed at times. I thoroughly got a kick out of the constant bantering between Sonya and Garrett. Garrett has a strong hunch that these incidents are no accidents and that someone is out to sabotage Sonya and her crew, but Sonya won’t hear of it. She can’t wrap her head around the fact that someone would want to harm her or her family, until the truth is staring her in the face. One of the things I respected about Sonya, she knows when to throw in the towel and wasn’t ashamed to ask for assistance when she finally came to the realization that she indeed did need help. Will Garrett be able to get to the bottom of who is out to cause Sonya harm? Will Aiden be able to convince Sonya that he’s a changed man, deserving of a second chance? Will Sonya be able to finish the fishing season safely and with her heart in one piece? I can happily say, yes, all these questions are answered and more. Ms. Helmer was woven an marvelous story, that kept me engaged and intrigued up to the very end. Just as with EDGE, by the time you are done with HOOKED, you’ll feel like you just came back from your very own adventure on the Bering Sea.

The first time I saw Garrett in Edge, I knew he needed to find his match, and BOY DID HE EVER find it in Sonya. I loved the dynamic of their being on the opposite sides of the law. My favorite line from the whole story? "Prepare to be boarded!" YES PLEASE! This second installment of the Alaskan series has everything I need in a book. Romance, suspense, danger, murder, humor, and some really intense action. This book didn't only rock my world, it rocked the BOAT!

This one hooked me. Funny, sexy, and suspenseful, I couldn’t put it down. I was excited to see more of Garrett from Edge and he seems to have more than met his match in feisty fisherwoman, Sonya. The setting was so real I felt like I’d been there. Helmer is a talented writer who can make even commercial fishing seem glamorous.

What a great insight to Alaskan fishing! This was a very well done book and it was about fishing and was a romance. It totally rocked. Who knew? I can't wait to see what else she has.
