Chicago City Girl Tackles Colorado Mountains with Sexy, Reclusive Guide.

Avery Oliver can see the byline now. What better way to jumpstart her journalism career than to head out into the woods with a sexy guide? It’s all very Bear Grylls, but she’ll take it, even if it means ditching her beloved designer suits and handbags. 

All Sullivan Reed needs in life is a fly rod and the roar of a river. Playing guide to a hot little reporter can’t end well…until they strike a deal that’s mutually beneficial. She’ll pretend to be his girlfriend to deflect an overly flirtatious neighbor, and he’ll help her with the article. It’s a win-win. 

Until it isn’t. By the time a storm strands them in his cabin, Sully’s done pretending. He wants Avery—badly—but she’s a big-city girl looking for adventure, not his simple life. So why does releasing her feel like he’s lost the perfect catch?

My Rating:
4 out of 5 stars

My Review:
This is the first book by Jennie Marts that I've ever read and I really enjoyed it!  I will definitely have to read more from her.  Hooked on Love was a fun romance that had me laughing out loud more than once.  It is part of her Cotton Creek series but can be read as a stand alone.  I did not read the first book in the series and didn't feel lost or like I was missing anything at all.

I really loved Avery's character.  I thought she was going to be an annoying stuck up city girl but she was really funny.  She has a dirty mind and talks in innuendo a lot which had me smiling like a goof while reading it in the coffee shop the other day.  Avery is definitely not used to the outdoors so I laughed at some of her misadventures.

Sullivan is your typical outdoorsy guy.  He loves everything about fishing, has a beard, dresses like a lunberjack, and has muscles in all the right places. haha!  He starts off as a gruff and grumpy guy but Avery brings out his lovable side and he finds himself smiling more.  Sullivan has an ex-wife that destroyed his confidence and trust, so he does throw a few pity be prepared to want to shake him a bit.  I wanted him to tell off his ex so bad!

These two had great chemistry so there were a few steamy scenes but it didn't overwhelm the story.  There were plenty sweet, funny, and exciting moments between the two.

**  I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.  **
