I don’t know what it was about this book - the writing style, the plot, the characters or the genre - but I found it really hard to just get through it and enjoy my experience. I think part of it was because we basically know from the beginning what’s going to happen and how it will end because this book is completely predictable. This whole book could’ve been avoided or at least changed for the better if the two characters could have at least one mature conversation without misunderstanding eve ...more

I admired Victoria for her desire and drive to accomplish her dream of helping people. However, I was also disappointed that she'd fall for a loser like Gabe. But then I was shown that people can change and witnessed Gabe's transformation from the loser drunk to and EMT saving others like himself. There were several things that happened in the book that I never saw coming. I think the author did a good job with the tough subject of addiction.

What kept this from being a 5 star read or me was the

Gabe Matthews has spent the last several years trying to be a better man. Losing his sister at a young age made him get sober. He feels it is his fault for not being a good example. Gabe has made some bad decisions in his life and all he wants to do is find happiness.

Victoria knows all about Gabe and who he is. When he walks into her life again she tries to keep her feelings suppressed and remember that her heart was shattered by him all those years ago.

Gabe and Victoria have a rocky past. She w

Overall I thought it was a good book. The characters annoyed me many times. While my knee jerk response is to criticize this fact I shouldn't because they invoked emotion. Something every writer strives to attain. I mean, there are plenty of people in real life who annoy us. The story moved along and few misspellings. I wish we would have had certain things wrapped up before it ended. What happened with Gabe and his parents? What about the kid struggling with the same dependency as Gab

Hooked on You tackles a subject that not many people want to talk about: Addiction.

Gabe and Victoria have a history.....he is her friends older brother.....she has been in love with him forever.

Circumstances have them drifting apart until time brings them back together but can they overcome everything from their past?

I thought Ms. Anne did a good job of dealing with the subject matter of addiction and how is effects all of the people involved.

Got a pre-release copy and this story is wonderfully crafted with many unexpected twists and turns. The writing flows well as you follow the two main characters along their journey. It's a superb demonstration of just how easily not being open and truthful about one's feelings can cause such turmoil and heartache. Sometimes, it's our own thoughts which cause us the most pain. I will note this is definitely a book for adults but would certainly read something by Ms. Anne again.

Hooked On You was a great debut book by Brittany Anne that I couldn't get enough of. Her talented writing style was displayed fantastically, and I'm already 'Hooked On Her.' Victoria has harbored a secret crush on her best friend's older brother, Gabe, since she was a young teenager, and when the opportunity presented itself after she grew up, she took it. However, while it was the best night of her life, the next day was horrible, and she left home to not look back for a long time. Seven years ...more

I fell in love with this book instantly. The writing was impeccable and the story flowed effortlessly. The characters were well developed and easy to connect with.
This is a debut novel for this author but you would never guess. I am excited to see more from her in the future.

Victoria has had a crush on her best friend older brother for years. But one night changes everything for the both of them.

Second chances for Victoria and Gabe

When I read this book I did not realise that it was the debut novel for Brittany Anne. Her writing was superb throughout and the story line kept me hooked throughout. I simply did not want to put this novel down. Brittany had me trapped from the very first page.

Victoria and Gabe were amazing. They were raw in their emotions for each other. Their instincts and reactions were just so natural - nothing was unbelievable about the way in which their characters were

I really enjoyed this book, it was my first one by Brittany Anne so i wasn’t sure what to expect, but i was presently surprised.

The writing was very different to what i was used to readin but when you you really got into the story you didn’t want to put it down. What i loved about this writing is you really got to feel and get everyone’s point of view.

Did I like this book? Yes!! So much so that I took the time to reach out to the author to let her know I did! It is sooooooooo good. Brittany Anne truly took me on a journey of heart break, lust, hatred and love. It was so much fun to read Hooked On Me. I felt every emotion that Victoria felt, really, I did. I think that was why this book was so great.
Victoria was so young when she met Gabe Matthews. Not only was she young but he was such a screw up. He breaks her heart into a million pieces an

Hooked On You is an appropriate title for this book/story, it hooked me in from the very beginning.

Gabe. I really wanted to hate him, yet at the same time I really wanted to like him. He did what he thought was best. The change in Gabe was... wow! He went from the bad boy to the good guy. He became an EMT, took a teenager under his wing, tried to help everyone and he became an all around good guy.

I liked Victoria, she’s the kind of person I’d like to have as a friend. She is eas

I love stories about second chances and this one delivered a great read.

Gabe is a man on a quest for redemption. Years previously he was a very immature man whose reckless and stupid behaviour and examples led to his sister's death. He is now a man wracked by guilt and is working hard by helping to set other people on the right path.

Another mistake from his past is the way he treated Victoria after a one-night stand years ago. Now Victoria is back in town to be close to her sick father. She real

3.5 🌟🌟🌟

This was an ok book, I liked the premise of first love and then lost and then reunited. However I felt that this could have been explored more in-depth on Gabes side as the issues were mainly his, but they were only touched upon as he was explaining to Vic his demons. There was maybe more could have been mentioned about Nick as he never even told Vic he was dead and she knew him too.
For me they're seemed to be an over use of the chatacters names which for me made it difficult to read .

This book was amazing!!! Read it in just 6 hours, It had me hooked since the first line. I totally fell in love with the characters, both Victoria and Gabe were wonderful. Well put characters that each had their issues and demons to overcome. I found myself crying, laughing and feeling all the hurt both characters were dealing with. Their love for each other was so believable and pure. I did not see the plot twists coming, which made it that much harder. The writing was amazing!!! This author is ...more

I loved this story. I loved Gabe and Victoria. I loved how one night changed so much. How even when you think things have long been forgotten, they haven't. This book made me feel so much. It broke my heart and put it back together all in the same story.

Hooked On You is definitely my kind of story! Victoria and Gabe are strong characters and very well written. I felt like I knew them. The story was written just as well and I felt as if I was living it with them. The twists and turns are unexpected and they just keep you turning the page faster than you can read, just so you can find out what happens next as quickly as possible. This second chance romance takes you on an emotional roller coaster that takes you high and low and then ends in the b ...more

Loved this story - physical attraction, emotional history between the two, and sexy lovemaking in just the right amounts. Read on KU and finished within the day. I always root for a HEA when I know the characters are truly good at heart despite a past that made me ache for them both. Would love to read more by this author.

I really enjoyed the characters of this book! It is a very quick read, meaning that it also felt rushed. Was a great novel for a debut book for the author! I would recommend it

Sometimes you get a second chance. When you get it you do everything you can to make sure to give it your all.

This story has a very heartbreaking backstory and it plays a role throughout the entire story. I find that this was a story of pain, regret, moving on and letting go. The emotional turmoil that Gabe and Victoria go through to come out in the end was emotionally raw. As much as you wanted to hate Gabe at the beginning, you come to love him for what he did to change his life. Then you have Victoria, who is so driven and passionate about helping others. Their passion collides as they both try and m ...more
