ARC Review: Hooked by Liz Fichera

Release Date: 1/29/2013
Genre: YA Contemporary
Midway Chatter: "Here"
Goodreads Link: "Here" 
Received from: Publisher via NetGalley
When Native American Fredricka ‘Fred’ Oday is invited to become the only girl on the school’s golf team, she can’t say no. This is an opportunity to shine, win a scholarship and go to university, something no one in her family has done.

But Fred’s presence on the team isn’t exactly welcome — especially not to rich golden boy Ryan Berenger, whose best friend was kicked off the team to make a spot for Fred.

But there’s no denying that things are happening between the girl with the killer swing and the boy with the killer smile...

My Thoughts:

 Hooked was enjoyable. I liked it, but it didn't make my high expectations for it. It was very different from what I was expecting. I had a lot of problems with the characters. I still enjoy the writing and the storyline, even though I had problems with book.

 The summary and cover sends a message to me of a romantic and hot book. This book has some romance, but it wasn’t built upon for me. One second they can't stand each other and the next it's boom insta-love. I don't mind insta-love that much if it's done right and it's not to bad in this book.

 I loved the background characters. I loved Ryan's sister; she made the book hundred times better for me. I liked Fred; she was independent and strong, until Ryan. I felt like Ryan came along and ruined the first part of a book for me. She change so much, from the first few chapters to when Ryan came and mixed things up. She wasn't as strong or independent anymore. I don't think that after all she has been through that boy would change her that much. I did really connect with Ryan; he just wasn't developed enough for me to fully understand him. 

 I still really liked the story, even with my problems. I liked Liz Fichera writing. It was hooking and entertaining. I loved the parts about Fred being the only girl on the golf time, it was very enjoyable and Fred was also very inspiring in those parts of the book.

 I had some problems with the book, but I still liked it. I loved the background characters, they add a lot to this book. I liked Fred, but a hard time with Ryan. Hooked is entertain and inspiring.

My Rating:

3 out of 5 hearts, It was okay.
