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 and I can't get enough of her.

Hooked is book one in the Viking Bastards MC series by author Christina Phillips. This story was quite enjoyable although I have to say that it was not what I expected. I wouldn’t classified it as an MC book as it was more centered around the H and h than club business. There was very little action involving the motorcycle club, no club drama and no angst. That being said, this was full of romance and hot and steamy action between the main characters, which made it a pleasant and inte ...more
I have to admit I enjoyed this book more than I expected, when I started reading I fully expected this to be a standard 3* read, not that there's anything wrong with that most of the books I read fall into that category.
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 ...more
☾I had no idea muffins and cupcakes could be so dirty. I honestly never thought I could like biker books so much, they just never interested me. Zach and Grace's story is incredibly unique, I have never read another story like this before.
☾Grace is a rich girl, comes from Malibu with her designer clothes and Mercedes. Zach is the complete opposite. He's a biker, foul mouthed, and lives alone with his sister Kat.
☾The two immediately hit it off in the back of a bar, then against her car, ...more
This is a safe biker romance with choice smut thrown in to keep things lively. I hope the author keeps the rest of the series like this one. Please, please, PLEASE!!! Hooked was gritty but real, sexy and sweet. I loved every minute of it!!!
When a dead cell phone and car trouble lands Grace in a seedy biker bar, she draws the attention of cocky biker boy, Zach.
After finally breaking up with her fiancé of four years, Grace throws caution out the window and takes up Zach's o ...more

While not a new author by any means, Christina Phillips was new to me, and I have to say that I enjoyed myself immensely with this start to her newest MC club series. It was dirty and fun and I enjoyed the characters and the way they worked out their romance coming from opposite sides of the tracks.
Grace was the princess in the ivory tower who did what everyone expected of her. She was the good daughter, the sensible sister and the goody two shoes she was expected to be. Zach on t ...more
The story of Zack and Grace is very much a sexual story. It's an insta-lust turned to love by the end. It is ridiculously well written for such a story. Ya'll know how difficult it is to pull off insta anything in a romance novel. Christina Phillips does it flawlessly. And the woman can write some delicious sexy #TRUTH
Zack & Grace meet by chance. Now while I have no issue with anyone picking up a complete stranger in a bar and having sex with them, I ...more
Hooked is the first book in a new series by Christine Phillips. I was so excited that I got a chance to try this story and this author out, so thank you Entangled Publishing and Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity. I have wanted to try this author out, and she does a good variety both contemporary and historical. But I have a weakness for MC, so I was intrigued by the set up of this one...more
I liked them together. They were hot!
I was annoyed by the short times apart. I wished they were more driven to be together.
The heroine was a bit oblivious at times, but not too annoying.
I loved that she dumped him when he was being an ass, and I was ok with his grovel. That is really unusual for me!
After I read so many reviews saying wonders about the book I confess that I was frustrated. I think the story is fairly common and without anything new or interesting. The two have a one-night stand and fall ...more
OK, my first read by this author and yes, I would read another book:) The storyline was ultra cheesy and a lot of "insta" everything but yet I liked it. Got to be honest, I didn't love it and I didn't hate it and with that being said, I would definitely give this author another chance!
I truly liked both Zach and Grace and would be interested to see where the secondary characters stories may go!
Grace's car breaks down during a rain storm outside a seedy looking bar. She goes in needing to use the phone and meets Zach, a member of the Viking Bastard MC. He propositions her, thinking she's looking for some fun. Grace agrees and their one night quickly turns into more for both of them.
I loved that Grace saw a different side to Zach that he didn't even realize he had. And I loved that he gave her the confidence to follow her dreams. There wasn't a lot of MC b ...more

Smoking Hot and Sexy as Sin, Christina Phillips literally opens with a bang and it just gets better and better. I really enjoyed the relationship between Zach and Grace, he was the bad to her good, the naughty to her nice, and they brought out the best in each other.

Review copy kindly provided by Net Galley in exchange for a honest review
I can’t believe it has been a while since I read a MC romance, however Hooked soon remind me why I loved this sub genre for so long. Philips first in a new series didn’t disappoint.
I love that whilst it was cliché it was fun and sexy and I couldn’t get enough especially after the first chapter.
Philips opening was perfect and lived up to the title. I loved how Grace and Zach met each ot ...more
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- ...more
ARC received in exchange for an honest review
This book was so good! I loved it!
Zack and Grace meets by accident, while her car broke down and her self phone died. From the moment they met the chemistry was explosive.
But Zack is MC guy and Grace is a rich 'princess'. This will never work right.
But they can't deny how they feel or how good the sex is. So will they compromise or will they rather both go their separate ways.
Loved Zack and even though he tried to deny his feelings for Grac ...more
Very easy low drama except for the end and that wasn't too bad. Slow thinking Zach though doesnt figure out till the end and break my chains stand on my own two feet Grace let's him sweat it out.
Received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
It was a very good book. It fell in line with the trope of bad boy biker meets rich good girl. Her walk on the wild side and his one night stand expands into something more.
The author captures the brash machismo of the MC subculture while also giving her male MC, Zach, real vulnerability. He has the crass mentality (and mouth ...more
Hooked is the fictional equivalent of cotton candy. Pink cotton candy. I love cotton candy.

Zach the big bad biker H sees and wants to have raunchy sex with her and does. Grace just broke up with her white-bread fiancee and thinks a ride on the wild side is in order.
