Summer in Metlin can sizzle, which gives Jeremy an excuse to turn up the heat.Hooked is a stand-alone, opposites-attract romance in the Love Stories on 7th and Main series by Elizabeth Hunter, USA Today Bestselling author of INK.

Elizabeth nails the nuances of people and relationships…

Hooked is the second installment of Elizabeth Hunter’s contemporary romance series Love Stories on 7th and Main.  Set in the rural California town of Metlin the series highlights the developing relationships between friends and acquaintances as they reinvigorate this once thriving small town. You can easily read Hooked as a stand alone but will get more out if it by reading book 1: Ink first.

Tayla McKinnon moved to Metlin to help her bestfriend, Emmie (from Ink) reimagine the bookstore she recently inherited from her grandmother.

Tayla’s skills in accounting help this city girl plant roots but her passion as a fashion and product influencer motivate her to pursue opportunities away from small town life. 

Jeremy Allen’s family has deep ties to the area, but after a short stint away has returned to Metlin to build his life and business and pursue his love of the outdoors.

If there were ever two extremely different people it would be Tayla and Jeremy yet their attraction is undeniable.

The thing that stands out in every story by Elizabeth Hunter is the quality of her characters and her ability to convey the attraction building between them.  Hooked is no different.   Tayla and Jeremy are unique and their relationship takes its own path in developing into something real and heartwarming.  I especially love the playful banter they share, which is just one more way that Elizabeth imbues such realistic qualities in her characters.  By the time you are done reading you feel like Tayla and Jeremy are two of your good friends.

I probably say this every time I review an Elizabeth Hunter book but it continues to hold true; she is consistently a solid romance writer, whether it involves a paranormal or contemporary couple.  She knows how to create characters and stories that not only engage her readers but allow her readers to feel the attraction through the stories on the page.  You will love getting to know the characters in Love Stories on 7th and Main!!
