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

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.

Terrence is still recovering from his life changing accident. He's floundering and trying to find his way. Taking the job as the girl's basketball coach will giv

Where do I begin? K. Webster has done it yet again!

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

There was...

Never. A. Dull. Moment.

I just kept reading, on the edge of my seat, sleep? What on earth is that sorcery?

This is the fourth book in the Hood River series, but also a standalone. I was kind of worried to read it, seeing as I haven't read the other three yet, but I found I really wasn't missing so much that I lost the whole s

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!

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 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

The riveting and all-consuming Hood River Hoodlum series concluded with Hood River Zero. Penny and Terrence’s friends-to-lover’s romance was raw and real.

Penny was a unique character that others might see as quirky, crass and rude. However, she was suffering inside and the only thing that could quiet her busy mind was white noises. She formed an unusual friendship with Terrence who was suffering and recovering from his traumatic car accident. Penny’s unforgiving and unfiltered mouth kept thi

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

This was such a beautiful, intense and emotional romance.

“She tastes like mint and madness.”

Dangerous. Heart-pumping. Intense.

Hood River Zero is another great book by K Webster. All of the Hood River Hoodlum stories had a hint of danger and a touch of that K Webster darkness we all crave when reading her stories.

We all have been DYING to read about Terrance. After Little Hoodlum, after Campfire Chaos.. we needed to know what happened with him.

Kristi definitely didn’t disappoint with this story.

Hood River Zero is the fourth book in the Hood River Hoodlum series and with every book, the next one outdoes the last. I love Smash and Penny. He gets her completely. Out of all the female characters K. Webster has written, Penny is by far my favorite. I absolutely love and adore her.

"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.

Dare I say I freaking loved Penny and Terrence? Well, I do, I do, I doooo!!!! Penny was quite the little badass. Miss independent. Miss sassy and feisty protector. She can take a hit and keep on fighting. Terrence...he definitely grew a lot during this story.

Terrance and Penny's story was everything!
These two just got each other. I don't care how they would bicker and name call...all that hostility just fueled the sparks that flew between these two.
An angst filled emotional roller coaster ride is what you are going to get with this story.
Plus, we still get to see all the other Hoodlums.
I love this family that is there for each other no matter what.
Hate to see this series end but you know K has got some ideas for those amazing side characters!

“With the sun shining on her golden-blond hair, she looks like a goddamn angel, too. All I can do is stare, because this girl is going to wreck me in the best possible way.”

This was a perfect story of romance, thriller, shock, and quite emotional.

It’s a light dark book. Triggers I see are child abuse, attempted rape, talk about rape, murder.

But y’all... the love these two main characters have for each other are something fierce. They just get each other so well. It’s quite beautiful.

What an amazingly, unputdownable way to end the Hood River Hoodlums series. 🤩Each book in this series was unique and each couple tragically beautiful in their own way. This series is binge-worthy. You can’t help but to fall deeply in love with each character, their journey and their back story. I am super excited about the note to readers in the back of Hood River Zero. 🙌🏻

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Life was nearly stolen from me. In the blink of an eye, everything changed. I'm no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum. I am irrevocably altered. Damaged both inside and out. I can't think. I can't function. I can't live. Not with all the darkness and pain dragging me into the unknown depth. Some days, I wish I never woke up. But then life takes an unusual turn.

It is always hard to pick a favorite when it comes to such a phenomenal series, because you can't get to the end of a series without having to have endured all of the heartache and turmoil prior. With that said Hood River Zero is one my favorites in this series for that very reason. We've already had twists, turns, family heartache and so much love between all of the Hoodlums now that we come to the finale, the culmination of everyone else that surround Terrance and Penny, their love story at th ...more
