Hooked on You | Review + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


She never wanted to come back. He never wants to leave. The town of Maple Falls has plans for them both.

Riley McAllister is living the dream in New York City . . . if the dream means being a struggling mixed-media artist, part-time food delivery driver, and having a carefully curated social media to hide all of the above. She refuses to admit defeat and move back to small-town Maple Falls, but when her grandmother breaks her leg sliding into third base during a softball game (she was safe, by the way), Riley reluctantly agrees to go home and help the woman who raised her—while secretly hoping she can convince Mimi to sell her house and yarn shop and move in with a good friend. Then Riley can return to her new life in NYC, on her own and for good.

But Mimi has her own plans, which include setting Riley up with local baseball star Hayden Price, who returned to Maple Falls after an injury ended his major league career. Now he works at his father’s hardware store, coaches the church softball team, and worries about the declining town. It’s not the life he dreamed of having.

With a little meddling and a lot of kindness from the town, Hayden and Riley find themselves unexpectedly falling for each other as they discover the true meaning of home.

Welcome to Maple Falls, where everyone knows your name and your business.

I do love a small-town setting, so I’ve been excited to take a trip to Kathleen Fuller’s Maple Falls, Arkansas. Hooked on You makes for a charming introduction to the town.

Riley McAllister returns from New York City to her hometown to help her grandmother as she recovers from a broken leg. Of course, her stay is meant to be temporary—but with someone like Hayden Price also back in town and some good-hearted meddling, she may just have to change her plans.

I enjoyed Hooked on You. It is a sweet contemporary romance as Riley and Hayden deal with dreams, home, and falling for each other (though Riley does not make it easy, most certainly). I look forward to more of Maple Falls in the future.
