Hooking Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds Review



* * * * * * * * * *


Anna McAlister needs a new life. But that doesn’t mean she needs a new man. After leaving her fiancé and Chicago behind, she promises herself no dating until she finds what she’s looking for. But meeting one seriously hot and determined detective has her questioning herself.

Calvin Miller is that detective, and he’s been burned by women in the past. It’s easy for him to sleep alone and focus on his work, but the moment he lays eyes on Anna, he starts imagining sexy nights with her wrapped in his sheets. Maybe it’s time to get back out there.

But just as the attraction between them begins to sizzle, Anna’s past shows up to create trouble. And to make matters worse, a string of murders forces Calvin to juggle his new relationship and his career. His worst fear? That the two are somehow connected.

Can they find love together, or will her past and his duty sink their hopes?

The third and final story in Aurora Rose Reynolds’ How to Catch an Alpha series of interconnected standalones, Hooking Him was exactly the type of sweet, sexy romance I’ve come to love and want from this author and precisely what I was looking to read when I picked it up. From their not-exactly-cute first meeting, I felt the spark between Anna and Calvin. It may not have been the insta-love BOOM straight out of the gate that Reynolds’ is known for, but the fuse was definitely lit for the explosion. Sexy, fun, and told in dual points of view, I devoured this easy-to-read, low drama love story in an afternoon. It was steamy and romantic with a hint of suspense to keep things interesting. The hero and the heroine both had baggage from previous relationships that contributed to their current trust issues, but the attraction between them was so undeniable, it was impossible for either of them to not to take the risk. The wonderful cast of side characters ratchet up the charm in this story with their entertaining antics.

Aurora Rose Reynolds totally brings the boom in Hooking Him with a low-angst, light-hearted, feel good story. Calvin was a confident hero who knew exactly what he wanted and pulled out every swoon-worthy move to get Anna’s attention. I absolutely loved watching this couple fall in love, and I was totally swept up in their romance. Hooking Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds gets 4.5 smooches from me!
