Tessa Bailey returns with another installment in the Bellinger Sisters series. This book features Fox Thornton and Hannah Bellinger as they navigate their way through a friends-to-lovers relationship. In this romantic comedy, Bailey pens charming and funny scenes that capture the heart. I was a little slow to enjoy this book. It had a more modern approach which isn’t always my style when it comes to dialogue and character development. However, I am enjoying it the more I read it.
I’ve enjoyed Tessa Bailey’s books in the past and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys sexy and funny stories with a bit of heat. Bailey’s writing style is very clear and concise, offering readers a very pleasurable experience. A lighthearted read - HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER will definitely hook you right in!
King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he’s a guaranteed good time—in bed and out—and that’s exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She’s immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his… personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.
Now, Hannah's in town for work, crashing in Fox’s spare bedroom. She knows he’s a notorious ladies’ man, but they’re definitely just friends. In fact, she's nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport’s resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker’s eye… yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can't deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost.
Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she’s walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and… and… man overboard! He’s fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he’s all in, she'll choose him instead?
