Book Review: Hooked by Liz Fichera

Fred has a passion for golf, so when the boy’s coach practically begs her to join the boy’s team, she’s flattered. But she’s also apprehensive – what if they don’t accept her?

Ryan is furious at first when Fred joins – especially because she takes the place of his best friend. But slowly he finds himself falling for Fred, and overcoming his prejudice against her Native American heritage.

HOOKED is a very fresh love story featuring a strong, sporty POC heroine (pretty rare!). Though the narrative arc goes exactly where you’d expect it to with this set-up, Fred’s winsomeness and her chemistry with Ryan keeps you invested in their budding relationship. Also features a great father/daughter bond which is always a big plus for me!

HOOKED came out this week. Visit the author’s website for more info about the novel.

I love, love, love that this book features a POC protagonist, and will be looking for it. Despite the fact that it's a tad predictable, the book sounds perfect for me!

I enjoyed reading this a lot even with the golf-it was actually more favorite part, I think.
