This was a cute and quick read. The heroine Anna left her heiress life behind in Chicago to find true happiness in this small seaside town. Calvin is a local police detective that instantly falls for Anna. This is definitely a insta-love romance without a lot of conflict.

Calvin had a bit of an intense presence. He's a detective so he's naturally protective, but his pursuit of Anna was almost like a wolf stalking his prey. It's such a great combination in a hero.

Aurora Rose Reynolds latest read Hooking Him is a fast pace, insta-love romance. In her quest to find happiness, Anna abandons her past life to begin afresh and unexpectedly finds love with Calvin. This romance begins on a rugged note, however, it withstands the test of danger, drama, and action.
A fast track story, wherein we sought the opportunity to connect with Anna and Calvin through greater character development. We also felt that a more gradual build up to the action sequences ...more
I really enjoyed our main character, Anna. I can respect a person who is willing to leave it all behind if they aren’t happy. She was an heiress who was engaged to a man she didn’t love and had a terrible family. She realized she wasn’t happy and walked away from it all. I feel like Calvin was really good for Anna. He showed her w ...more

We met the very hot police detective Calvin back in book one and sweet Anna in book 2 when she comes to work at the bakery. They are great together Calvin is hot and sweet, but not as yummy as Gaston Baiting Him. Her parents and ex are a piece of work. There's a whole lot of mentioning of his ex, but no explanation about that relationship. There is a "serial killer" going around, and I sure didn't pick that person as being it. Loved the old ladies. ...more
This was my favourite of the three books. It had more story and of course the fabulous Golden Girls.
Anna has left her life in Chicago behind her. Her rich parents, billionaire boyfriend and high paid job. She’s now living in a small apartment, working in a bakery and loving it.
She’s not looking for love.
Calvin Miller is the hot local detective. Since his fiancée left 5 years ago he hasn’t looked at another woman. But one look at Anna and he thinks it’s the right time to move on.

"You found it on your own, baby... It was in you."
It looks like Aurora Rose Reynolds safed the best for the last, because Hooking Him is - in my honest opinion - the best story in the How to Catch an Alpha series. It was super funny, highly entertaining and had a little suspense factor too. My Happily Ever Alpha queen ARR didn't only deliver a beautiful and touching love story, she also gave the readers some very valuable and important messages on the ...more
Not much to say about 'Hooking Him'. It was a cute hallmark movie type romance filled with instant love (cringe worthy but expected), oozing chemistry, family drama, cheating exes and a side fish of murder (surprising bit of this story). It's definitely a feel good romance and ideal for readers looking for a quick, easy read.
Anna gets all the props here. She has had an elite upbringing with very little affection from her parents. She pulls up her bootstraps and decided she is a better person than that. She leaves the sheshe folks behind and moves across cou ...more
If you have read ARR then this is her usual style.
Devoted to each other, no flirting with anyone else.
A great group of secondary characters and previous characters and couples from earlier books in series.
Non man-whore Hero.
No intimate scenes other than the Hero and heroine.
Ex drama for heroine as she has recently broken off an engagement in Chicago.

4 stars. Thank you to NetGalley for giving me an eARC of this book for an honest review.
The third book in the How to Catch an Alpha installment was very enjoyable and I loved reading Aurora Rose Reynolds’ series about strong dominant males. This book can be read as a standalone but it is nice to know some of the characters of the other books as they do appear in Hooking Him.
Our main character Anna McAlister arrives in our small beach town of South Carol ...more
This book is a standalone novel in a series of standalones (I know confusing but limited cross over and can be completely read on its own). The story is told mostly from Anna’s POV but we do get a couple chapters from Calvin’s. I thought the flow and pace of the story worked well. The pace of the story flowed well even this this was a slower bu ...more
