Hooked on Her by Stacey Lynn - ARC Review & Blog Tour

“Stacey Lynn always knows how to perfectly balance sexy and sweet.” New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne


Tessa Chauncy is the best kind of trouble. Beautiful, sweet and completely off limits. I’ve sat by and watched other men drool after her and forced myself to stay in check. Hey, I’m in the NHL... I have self-control in spades.
Except when it comes to her.
With the bat of her lashes and quick whip of that sharply pointed tongue Tessa can knock grown men to their knees. I’ve seen them wither and crumble under her confident stare— something I’m pretty sure she learned from sparring with me, thankyouverymuch.
But I’m not just falling for her. I’m down for the count.
She’s the girl I wanted, when wanting her was wrong. She’s also my new roommate-- And oh yeah, my best friend’s little sister.
Heaven help me, I’m probably going to get his fist to my face or his hockey stick shoved in very dangerous places for what I’m about to do, but I don’t think I care anymore.
I’m in love with my best friend’s little sister….and I’m done waiting.

I really enjoyed Tessa and Jason.

This book was really funny. The inner dialogue of both of the characters was hilarious in a lot of places and their conversations and interactions with the secondary characters were really enjoyable and gave an excellent window into the personalities of both of the main characters.

I really loved that he was all in but also still a little unsure about the relationship. And I loved that Tessa was willing to call Jason on the things that he did that made him jump to conclusions or overreact. There's a scene that's really heartbreaking as you know what she was trying to do, but he takes it completely wrong...and, well, it's not only a really great scene to move the story forward, but also one to call back to and show the growth of the relationship.

I also really believed in the relationship. I loved Jason at the beginning, when he decided he was done waiting and denying what he wanted. And, he let Tessa know, more than once and directly. While it still took a little and the story allows you to watch the relationship build, you definitely know where he is from the very beginning.

Friends to lovers can be excellent, or they can struggle a little with the transition. I though this one balanced the transition in a really strong and realistic way.

Overall, I enjoyed and recommend this title.

HOH - Teaser 5 AN

I scoop more chicken onto a folded chunk of naan and moan as I savor the taste. There are some decent restaurants where I live, all within walking distance, which is a bonus, but none are as good as Tandor’s. I can’t even piece together what makes it so delicious but it’s mouth-watering amazing.
“Jesus, Tessa. Can you not sound like you’re having an orgasm when you eat?”
I choke on my chicken and wash it down with my water. “Don’t like it, you can leave.”
“But then I won’t be able to share with you why I’m here.”
The chicken I’ve devoured rolls in my stomach. Obviously it’s not because he’s a nice guy. I lean back in my chair. “What is it?”
He huffs a laugh and I hate he looks so damn good, smirking at me, shaking his head like I’m some amusing little thing.
“You’re cute, Tessa. I ever tell you that?”
“I think the day you took me to get stitches in my head, yeah. You bopped me on the nose with a finger and said ‘cute and tough, nice’ before ignoring me the rest of the weekend.”
I’m mortified with myself. He’s not supposed to know these things, know how much I remember every.single.encounter with him ever.
His mouth opens a bit and he stares at me. Yeah. That dose of word vomit probably surprises the hell out of him too. But hell, in for a penny. He says he doesn’t give a shit about what Sawyer thinks? He should know what I think.
“I’m pretty sure that’s the day I started having a crush on you.”
He doesn’t take his eyes off me as he chews on what I think is chicken tikki masala. Slowly, he swallows and sets his own fork down. Leaning forward, elbows on the table, I’m tempted to drop my gaze to his mouth and watch his full lips move so sexily as he opens his mouth and asks, “Want to know when it started for me? When I started facing the reality that it was my best friend’s little sister that made my dick hard in my dreams at night and when I was on the road?”
