Five years later, Hooked is now the number one dating app in the country.

But that’s not the only thing on fire.

Just as things really start getting serious, Love resurfaces. She wants a chance to explain, and she’s sending Easton’s heart into rewind.

He has a loving woman in the flesh and a fantasy from his past—Easton’s world is about to be rocked.

And rocked hard.

Mr. Hook-up AN teaser


There is nothing better than watching a confirmed playboy bachelor completely lose his shit over a strong confident woman not only once, but twice.

Told in dual perspectives, the first installment of the Hooked series is located in Boston where three close friends in grad school are developing their new Hooked app for no-strings hookups. With a very rare and surprising 100% match, one of those friends discovers his life will change forever.

Easton Jones never expected his Hooked app brainchild to give him a perfect match. After all, he was well known for his one-night stands and had no time for relationships. Keeping his relationship with his match a mystery was part of the fun until that one night in the stairwell at the masquerade made Easton crave her more. However, meeting again was not meant to be as she ghosts him. No real names are exchanged, their physical identities are hidden, and Easton can’t find her, so he moves on and tries to forget the woman who changed him. Then five years later the woman who got away is back. She’s smart, gorgeous, brilliant and she’s his employee.

Drake Madden was an emotional wreck five years ago and had to make a tough choice to leave Boston and the man who rocked her world. Now she’s back, he’s her boss, and she needs to keep everything professional. Too bad Easton didn’t get the memo.

Easton is a sexy beast and I love that he trusts Drake and has her back during the worst of times. It’s nice to read about a couple without angst and doubts and Easton is true blue when it comes to loving his woman no matter what. Drake is amazing at what she has accomplished in her 28 years and it’s wonderful how she wins her co-workers over with her kindness and respect for others. Drake and Easton’s connection is beautiful and healthy and the sex scenes are very hot! It was evident from the very beginning that they were meant to be together. 

The story is a classic tale of how love can change even the most confirmed bachelor. It is a story that has been told time and time again, but Ms. Mann manages to put a fresh spin on it. The characters are well-developed, and the storyline is engaging and captivating.

Thank you to Ms. Mann for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
