Hooked on Love is book two in the Cotton Creek series by Jennie Marts. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and have not been influenced by any outside sources.

Jennie Marts has done it again with this book. I didn’t really know what to expect going in and wow, I ended up falling in love with this little gem of a romance.

fly fishing gif

Sullivan Reed or ‘Sully’ leads a simple life. He has his little cabin, his business that sells fishing supplies and takes out guided tours, his grandfather’s old fishing cabin up the mountain and his best friend, his golden retriever, Sadie. That’s all he needs. Sully has been deeply hurt and he won’t ever let himself be put back in that position again. His ex-wife took everything she could from him and she continues to take. But more than the physical or monetary things she took from him, she also took his self confidence. She was an angry, bitter woman, and told him regularly that he wasn’t enough. That he was boring and simple. Sully hasn’t felt the least bit interested in connecting with a woman since the divorce. That is until he ran smack dab into a pair of the most beautiful legs he’d ever seen. And those legs belonged to a very beautiful woman by the name of Avery Oliver.

Sully's cabin:

“What was it about her that had his stomach in knots and his palms starting to sweat?”

Avery lives in Chicago and was sent to Cotton Creek, Colorado to do a story on the city girl in the mountains learning to fly fish. Avery is to stay in Cotton Creek for a week and a half and spend time with Sullivan Reed learning to fish. Their first encounter together was hilarious and definitely was not a romantic one. Avery needs to make this article the best she has ever written. So much is riding on it. She was offered a promotion if the article was a good one. But all it took was one fly fishing lesson to show them both that they shared something special.

woman in waders:

Thus began their adventure together. And let me tell you, it was truly an adventure. But through it all, Sully’s inner voice kept telling him that he could never be anything to her. That she would never fall for a guy like him.

“Why the heck would someone like Avery Oliver even think twice about him?”
“How could someone that thrived on the thrill of adventure ever be satisfied living in a small cabin in the middle of nowhere with someone as dull as him?”

Sully after the chainsaw scene! :):

This was a delightfully sweet, sexy and fun book. Avery showed Sully who he could be, who he really was. And that is a romantic, fun, adventurous and sexy man. In her eyes, a VERY sexy man. Can Sully learn to trust in the feelings that are growing between them? Can they find a way to make a life together with her life in Chicago and his in Colorado? I hope you’ll pick up the book to find out. Now I need to go back and read book one of this series, Romancing the Ranger. I am in love with this little Colorado town of Cotton Creek and can’t wait to read more about the people that live there.

Thanks so much, Alp!!! XO

Cyndi Great review Carol! It sounds like Sully avoided women after the divorce so not a manwhore? Or had he been hooking up with OW?

Thank you, Cyndi. He wasn't with anyone at all after the divorce. He tried to go on one date but was so uncomfortable that after a kiss on the cheek he gave up. Until he met Avery that is. :)
