I got an email from K. Webster newsletter and it has a picture and a quote from the book that is totally Penny. If you go back and read the scene in Little Hoodlum where Penny and Roux get sent to her room, Penny talks about a dream she had about Terrance. It’s totally foreshadowing what is going to happen in this final book. Plus, Penny really got Terrance out of his funk when he was released from the hospital and she put him down about his appearance, she really cheered him up. I am very excited about this book.(less)

'HOOD RIVER ZERO' is the fourth and final full length romance book in K. Webster's 'Hood River Hoodlums' series. It picks up where the third book dramatically left off.
It doesn't happen often but every once in awhile you read a series that is SO PHENOMENAL & ALL CONSUMING that it sets itself on a high pedestal from every other book you've read! And this series for me did exactly that!!

Penny our heroine was such a unique character, she had quirks, she was unfiltered and crass, standof
3 Stars

Scars aren’t always on the outside, but they usually tell a story of a battle the person has fought and won.

Told in dual POV, 1st person, it’s the fourth and last installment in the "Hood River Hoodlums" series and should be read in order. I liked this series but unfortunately, this one was the least enjoyable one. Penny was too tough for my taste. Don’t get me wrong, I like strong, stubborn women, tough ones but Penny had too much of them. It was like she didn’t need anyone in her life,

This was an amazing series and everyone needs to read these books!!!
I'm kinda sad that this journey came to an end, but K. promised more to come and I'm so excited about it!!!

This book is not a standalone. PLEASE listen to me. NOT A STANDALONE. None of these books are standalone. They feed into each other. I need you to trust me here. None of you want to enter this great world anywhere but at the beginning. #trust

You guys … this series was one heck of a ride! I could not wait for each of the books to publish. These kids/adults had me at hello! Every single one! But Zero , she was something special. Sometimes, and these times are rare

I adore Penny's tell-it-like-it-is attitude. She always made me laugh out loud in the other books. I loved her in this one too, that was no exception.

I don't know what happened to the Hood River Heroes series that is/was supposed to be coming but I'm gunna need it. Ngl I kind of want a Jace/Loden MM book and a Garrett/Tierra MF one. But it'll probably be about the kids. Meh. LOL.
This series was done very well. I encourage you to try it. Each book was so unique yet they tied together nicely. Lots of emotions, but in all I want to say this series is about regular people. The events are so common, but the way K executed the delivery was genius. I am glad to know there will be more books coming in a spin-off.

4.5 stars

I was so looking forward to this book after reading the previous one because my girl Penny cracks me up with her sassy/bitchy attitude but you can tell that loyalty and a big heart hide behind her icy exterior.
So is it any surprise that this one turned out to be my favorite of this series?
I loved to see the plot evolve through the series and all characters with it. There are a lot of common themes explored such as: abuse, assault, murder, rape, arson, getting justice, overcoming horrib

So my two favorite Hood River Hoodlums books ended up being the first and the last. But frankly, I pretty much only read books two and three in order to be able to read book 4.

Penny’s a bitch and I loved ever second of it. Just like the rest of the series, everything is OTT and what could go wrong, does go wrong.

Would recommend if you like

Also, I’m left here wondering—what’s gonna happen w Tierra?? Like we got no resolve w that one smh.

Hood River ending

This was a great book to end the series on. It changed so much from Hollis and Roan's bully romance story, to a much darker series.

We do get a different villain in the form of Jack Henderson, the father of Lacey who has been mentioned in previous books. Turns out Terrance got her pregnant a couple years ago and then she disappeared. Now her father Jack is the childs' guardian and they're in Hood River.

On the one hand, it's the same 'realising you knocked someone up years ago an

I didn't want it to end! HOODLUM FOR LIFE!

Penny was different. That mean and cruel exterior was just a shell to protect her soft inside. She's not your average girl. An athlete, tough, but protective. She loves hard, but hides that side of her. I adored her feistiness. She was an interesting character to add to the mix and she was great.

This town. This family. The whole thing. I am forever in love with this entire crew.
They are brave, loyal, their love is unending, and their friendships know no bounds.
Smash & Zero were an achingly slow burn goodness that I didn’t know I needed. But while I was waiting for the steam, they were forging a relationship that was gonna last a lifetime.
Mix that in with the chaos that Hood River seems to breed, along with some Hoodlum vengeance, and what you wind up with is a masterpiec
Hood River Zero Forbidden friends to lovers romance Penny and Terrence’s story and also the last book in this amazing series. If you’re as heartbroken as me this is over take heart because Ms Webster in her awesomeness said she’s going to give us more! On this last note my greedy mind got some rest because I’m not ready at all to let go.

I knew book 4 would be the end of me, and yet I wasn’t even half ready for the annihilation this brought about. Penny has soon become one of my favourite heroine

"Stop Talking"

Penny was one of my favorite characters in this series. She's sassy take no crap heroine. Favorite say "Stop talking". Terrance is also another on the top of my list, scars and all.

Penny goes out of her way to help Terrance with Zella. I did not like how he acted when he found out what she had done but in a way can understand it. Their love is special and strong as they help sooth each other.

Can't wait to see who will be next in the Heroes.

Hood River Zero By K. Webster, is Book Four in the Hood River Hoodlum Series.
Book One: Roan and Hollis Story..
Book Two: Jordy and Roux Story..
Book Three: Cal and Charlotte Story..
Book Four: Terrence and Penny's Story..

This is Terrence's and Penny's Story!
This is a series that needs to be read in order as some of the storylines overlap with other books and to be honest to experience this series in its best form, you need to start from the very beginning and find out how everyone got to where the

I actually ended up really enjoying Hood River Zero by K. Webster. This is the last book in the Hood River Hoodlums series, and is about Terrence, the last Hoodlum, and Penny, Charlotte and Hollis's youngest sister. This series is NOT a standalone series, and you need to read each book in order. This takes place right after the end of Campfire Chaos. Terrence has woken up from his coma and is healing from his car accident. When at the doctor's, he sees a little girl who looks like him, and reali ...more

There was suspense, action, romance, twists and turns, emotions running wild. Everything you'd want in a book!

There was...

So many times when reading series you wonder how can the last book get better than the first 3... especially when the MCs are usually the minor characters in the other books. Well let me say that my friend K Webster (she doesn't know it yet but I'm making bracelets b/c I seriously love her) never disappoints. Hood River Zero follows our favorite smartass Penny and our broken boy Terrence. If you have not read the first 3 books... go away... seriously, you have to read these in order to get he fu ...more

Penny and Terrance have such an amazing hate love relationship during this book. The name calling, the dry humor with each other.... they just seemed to get each other and I loved it. I wouldn’t call it hate really, more like understanding, that comes off as dislike when it’s anything but. We have two strong and amazing characters that you can’t help but love. We have known these two since the start of the series and we got to watch them both grow into amazing people.

Penny has been my favorite side character in all these books, so I was soooooo happy for her to be the focus of this book. She really deserved to be the focus for once.

I really liked learning more about her, and seeing what makes Penny Penny. There's a lot going inside that young woman. She is very complicated and thinks that she's broken, but she really isn't broken. She's also very smart and very loyal. Once you are inside her circle, you're in there forever, and she will burn down the world

I have to admit after each book I read in this series I am like that is my favorite, but Hood River Zero is by far the best one! The underlying vulnerability in Terrance and Penny makes them the perfect fit. Both of them are like to puzzle pieces that just snap together to make the perfect picture.
This storyline will make you laugh, cry, get angry and swoon. The roller coaster of emotions is totally worth it!
