For aspiring journalist Harlow Ransom, life is just a well-oiled machine, and if she plans well, all things will go accordingly. And that is exactly why Harlow lives her life by perfectly polished to-do lists that she refuses to stray from—even when she's celebrating her 21st birthday in Sin City.

This was an addicting read, and it was pretty awesome seeing characters from Hooked! But it can also be read as a stand alone. The phone scene was my favorite!!!

Very entertaining!

Hitched was the first novel I read by the Christine Manzari and the second book in the Hearts of Stone series. I can be read as a standalone.I chose to read this novel because I have a soft spot for the “waking up married’ trope. I didn’t know quite what to expect, but I loved the dialogue and relatable characters.

Gosh, Trace was such an entertaining hero! Not only was he so sweet, but sexy and charming. The witty banter between this couple put a smile on my face, plus the ch

You may or may not know by now that I'm a HUGE FAN of Christine's first NA contemporary, Hooked . I read it back in January 2015 and it was one of my favorite books from all of 2015. I wanted so badly for her to continue writing in that world, so you can imagine how excited I was when I got a message from her asking if I'd be interested in reading Hitched, the second book in her Hearts of Stone series. Obviously I said yes and jumped into the bo

Things that make me happy:
1. Harlow.
2. Trace.
3. A Vegas Wedding.
4. Very very determined characters.

This book was so fun. I giggled and swooned my way through each page.

I felt like on some level I really understood Harlow. She was so goal oriented. She wasn't quite cold, but her focus was so sharp.

Trace was *fans self* the hero we always want. He's determined and kind and lighthearted at the same time. He just is all of the things.

I absolutely adored this read. It was a first from th

This was my first trip into the world of Christine Manzari, and boy did I enjoy the ride! Harlow Ransom is very singular in her goal oriented life as an aspiring journalist. She lives by perfect to do lists that she won't stray from for any reason. Harlow believes that even celebrating her 21rst birthday in Vegas needs a list, so she can check things off. However, life doesn't always go by a list, so when she wakes up with a ring on her finger, she has no idea how it ended up there. Trace Stone, ...more

A book I could NOT put down.. I do love the romance novels! The storyline was very interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I had to force myself to stop reading to get some sleep or I would have kept reading until the book was done. Christine's stories are very easy to picture in your head as your going thru the story and it keeps you interested thru the end. I must admit, I never want the story to end!

I am absolutely loving this series. Seriously I am completely hooked on Manzari writing style at this point. Though I have to admit, I preferred Hooked more, I still find myself saying this was a damn good read. Once you get started on these, seriously there is no putting them down until you finish.

From the start I loved the main characters, which is exactly what I love about Manzari writing style. Her characters up to this point have been the perfect blends, the perfect personalities – the tota

Not going to lie, I went into this book because it was announced that it was in a series of standalones that I had previously started. I didn't read the blurb, I had no idea what it would be about, and I just dove in. Holy heck, I was in for a complete and utter treat! Christine Manzari made me swoon and giggle like a school girl as I progressed through Hitched. It came at the perfect time and certainly delivered with all the fun, flirty feels.

This was my first book by this author and I had no idea what to expect going into it. The blurb had me for sure, I mean who can resist the whole crazy partying and ending up married in Vegas story? Well not me and this couple had me hooked. I experienced so many emotions while reading this book. I wanted to strangle Harlow on many occasions but if you think about it and not let all your emotions take over you'll realize why she is the way she is.

I have so much love for this book.  It can be read as a stand alone, so if you haven't read the first book, that's completely okay.

Harlow and Trace are such awesome and unique characters.  Trace is dealing with a small break in his snowboarding career, and Harlow is used to being the perfect daughter and chasing her dreams without really living.

There are so many awkwardly fun moments in this book. Harlow is a complete klutz, a

HITCHED is the second novel in Christine Manzari's Hearts Of Stone series. Having not read any of her books before I was unsure of what to expect, but I should never have been worried. It was a wonderful Romantic/Comedy and one that I would thoroughly recommend to those readers who love this Genre.

What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas for Harlow Ransom and Trace Stone. When Harlow goes to Vegas to celebrate her 21st birthday with her sisters she ends up at the Bellagio fountain and meets Trace, a guy who makes her say yes when she is used to focusing on her studies. A night of fun and pleasure leaves them both waking up with a band on their ring fingers and sends Harlow running.

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

I thought the juxtaposition of the two main characters was a fun thing to do on Manzari's part. Harlow lives her life by lists. Even her 21st birthday requires a list so she can have optimal fun. However her lists could not predict Trace Stone. He lives life freely and is determined to win her over.

The banter back and forth between the characters kept the story moving. The overall flow of the book was at a great pace. Manzari really und

So freaking hilarious, it will have you laughing out loud at the madness! Couch cat is my favorite character even though I hate cats, this one causes more accidents and injuries that it's way too funny!
The story how Harlow got the cat is epic! Enough about the cat though. She marries an professional snowboarder without even realizing it. He's a dream! Swoon! I mean who moves across country to follow someone you barely know. Trace that's who! He's persistent and stubborn, but not near as stubbor

This is the first time I have read any of this authors work, and I am questioning myself as to why it has take me so long. This is the second book in the “Hearts of Stone” series, but each book is a standalone. I loved Harlow and Trace, and the intense chemistry and attraction they had for each other. No spoilers from me through, you really need to read this series for yourself!

I enjoyed this book, though not as much as the first one, Hooked. I liked Trace but I kind of had a hard time seeing what he saw in Harlowe. She was kind of horrible to him and just pretty selfish. BUT I’m glad she realized it in the end!

Oh my gosh...another Manzari book I couldn't put down! This book was steamy, had me seriously laughing out loud numerous times & characters who I want to be friends with in real life!! I always love the depth that Manzari gives to her characters & how strong her female leads are - Harlow was no different. Let's talk about Trace - he is definitely another new book boyfriend...hot!!! Absolutely a must read!!!

If you want a swoon worthy contemporary romance, where the characters are real and unique, then looked no further. Although I liked Hooked better than Hitched, both are not your typical "she's flawed and he is too" kind of romance. The characters are flawed, but in a realistic, every day kind of way! Oh yeah, the sex scene are definitely hot!

I LOVED Trace and Cat... but Trace and Harlow... swoon. This book has everything I need in a romance novel. Steamy hot scenes (hello!) and humor (Couch Cat! Buzz!) are some of what Manzari does best, but what always strikes me are the depth of her characters. They are real, flawed, and unique. Being a fellow Marylander, I love the local references, as well!

I really enjoy reading this book from the start, their wittiness hooked me.
On the first book i don't have good impression of Trace but he prove me wrong here, he's a great guy, driven, gentle, passionate, and could be cocky just like his brother xD
Harlow is a sweet, independent, and hardworking girl. Through some personal experience she doesn't think she want or even need someone as her significant other, but Trace slowly but surely made her wondering her decision.

I love woke-up-married romances as a rule, but this one wasn't an all-time favorite just because Harlow was such a frustrating character. In fact, there were big sections of the book when she was unlikable just because she was making up stupid reasons not to be with her husband, who was a really great guy and was doing all the heavy lifting in the relationship.
Connie
This series just keeps getting and better . I thought Trace was a horrible person in Hooked, (Hearts of Stone # 1), after he betrayed his brother, Huck. But we get to see another side when he meets Harlow in Vegas and they wake up married to each other. That may seem romantic at first, but what they don't know about each other may just end the relationship before it begins!

The first thing Christine does when she's getting ready to read a book is to crack the spine in at least five places. She wholeheartedly believes there is no place as comfy as the pages of a well-worn book. She's addicted to buying books, reading books, and writing books. She even turned her dining room into a library—reading is more important than eating. She also has a weakness for adventure and ...more
