Hooked_CoverBlurb
Zach…
I like my sex dirty and disposable. I’m not into commitment or chicks who want more than one night. My brothers and club come first, second and last.
Until she walks into my life. Classy, rich and so out of my league it’s crazy. A week together should get her out of my system, but this good girl is so bad when we’re all alone and I can’t get enough of her.
I don’t do forever, but she’s hooked me so bad I don’t ever want to let her go. Except there’s no way a princess can live in my world and I sure as hell won’t live in hers…

There’s no wasting time in getting to the good stuff!

Grace throws all inhibitions to the wind – or shall I say on the pool table in the back room of Odin’s – when she meets the handsome, bad-boy biker Zach. Newly single from a relationship she felt pressured into to please her wealthy family, she’s looking for some fun, and she got it…and then some. Zach knows that good little rich girls like using him and his brothers for their fantasies and to rebel against their families and he was all too happy to oblige. Once was all it’d be…so they thought.

Grace doesn’t demand anything from Zach like some of his former flings have attempted, and her relaxed, go-with-the-flow attitude turns him on as much as her red hair and gorgeous bod. For some reason -one he can’t fathom- he’s into her for more than sex, but he’d be damn if he admits it. At least not too soon and not where anyone can overhear. He does have a reputation to protect.

His he-couldn’t-care-less attitude doesn’t push Grace away, and before either of them realize it, they’re in a relationship. They don’t verbally label what they have, but it’s obvious to all those around them. Phillips definitely has a way with words and the scorching hot sex scenes are just icing on the cupcake (read the book and you’ll get that). Hard truths about biker life are not ignored, but the characters are as believable as they are charming (if one can describe a biker as such). Zach has an inner gentleman and Grace’s bad girl rears her pretty head. Together these two are explosive and as different as they are, they are perfect for each other. I want more of these two!

I think I might buy my hubby and Harley and a leather jacket. 😉

So worth the time it took to read it. Grab a copy!

Rating system: Cups of Coffee (the less the better)

0: You won’t need any coffee to stay up for this one. It’s intriguing enough all on its own.
1: You’ll stay up late, but not all night. Brew one cup.
2: You’ll read as long as you’re not tired. If you are, two cups should do the trick.
3: I hope you got plenty of rest; you’ll need it, or at least 3 cups.
4: If the cable goes out, read the book. It’s better than nothing, I guess. Oh, don’t forget your brew!
5: Find anything else to do- it doesn’t matter what it is. Don’t waste your coffee. Too much caffeine is bad for you.

My rating: 0 cups of coffee

I pull her close, and she winds her arms around me, which makes me almost forget what I was about to say. “What you see is what you get with me.”
“Hmm,” she says as though she doesn’t believe a word. “Big, bad, tough guy on the outside. That’s okay, your secret’s safe with me.”
I snort with laughter. “No secret, Grace.” I like saying her name. “That’s me, inside and out.”
“If you say so.”
“When I get you home, I’ll prove it to you.”
“Do you live far from here?”
With my arm still wrapped around her, I once again make for the door. “Nah. Just a couple of blocks. Won’t take long.”
“Can we pick my luggage up first?”
I pause, hand on doorknob. “Luggage?”
“Yes. From my car. You know, toothbrush and…stuff.” Her cheeks are pink and she gives a little shrug. “If I’m staying the night I need my things.”
“Sure.” My mind fills with the happy vision of Grace in my shower. I pull open the door, keen to get home and put that particular fantasy into action.
Tension vibrates from her as we walk back into the bar. I swagger across the room, ignoring the glances from my brothers and friends, and they soon get the message. Instead of catcalls and jeers, they go back to their business, and Grace gives a relieved sigh as the door swings shut behind us.
“At least it’s stopped raining.” She lowers her umbrella. “That’s my car, over there.”
I glance across the street and there’s no mistaking which car she’s talking about. It’s a silver Mercedes coupe, and if I don’t warn my brothers the car’s off-limits, it’ll be picked clean by morning.
She opens the trunk and takes out an overnight case, then looks at me expectantly, as though she’s waiting for me to haul out the massive case that takes up the entire space. Is she leaving home or going on vacation?
It’s none of my business, and I don’t know why the question even enters my head.
“You need all this shit for one night?”
“No, but I need a change of clothes.” She frowns as though something’s just occurred to her. “Oh, you mean we’re walking to your house? I thought you’d have your car here. It doesn’t matter, I can make do.”
She goes to shut the trunk, and I hold it open. “I don’t have a car.” Seriously, is she really that clueless? Her surprised glance tells me that yeah, she really is. I haul her case out and slam the trunk.
“There’s really no need.” She waves a finger at her case. “I don’t expect you to carry it along the street. It’s too heavy.”
“The hell it is.” Even if the damn thing were full of bricks I wouldn’t back down now. “You better have some killer underwear in here as payback.”
