Description of the book


In the follow-up to It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey delivers another deliciously fun rom-com about a former player who accidentally falls for his best friend while trying to help her land a different man…

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?

Reviews of Hook, Line, and Sinker

Cute story, but narrator had a very strong American accent. It happened one summer (the first book to this series) was better but I still enjoyed it!


I looooved this. I've been putting it on hold a lot, but I really enjoyed this. Slow burn, friends to lovers kind off, but I enjoyed the development in their relationship rather than "oh you're hot, let's fuck" we usually get in romance books. I loved the way he tries so hard for this girl, and I loved how she's slowly introducing him to all this little quirks in her day to day life. Super cute, summer-y, beachy vibes. Loved it! "I could tell by the way you looked at her, she was something real special! How did I look at her?' He was afraid to find out. 'Ah, son. Like a summer day showing up after a hundred years of winter!


Loved it!
