Aurora Rose Reynolds does it again! She has created a magic formula with her Alpha Heroes and the sassy fierce heroines, you can’t help but fall in love.


This book is a standalone novel in a series of standalones (I know confusing but limited cross over and can be completely read on its own). The story is told mostly from Anna’s POV but we do get a couple chapters from Calvin’s. I thought the flow and pace of the story worked well. The pace of the story flowed well even this this was a slower burn coming to love relationship.

The story follows Anna and Calvin. Anna works in the same bakery as Chrissie (heroine in book 2). Anna left her life in Chicago to find her happiness. Calvin is a Detective for the local police department and has had his heart broken in the past. Neither of these characters were open to finding love. Anna and Calvin both have experienced heartache and have some trust issues to overcome before they can be all in together.  This story is the perfect amount of romance and drama/suspense to make a good read.  

Hooking Him was a fast fun and flirty read.  I loved the added element of suspense and mystery to this story. This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out the who.  But it also filled with funny laugh out loud moments. I loved the quirky old ladies in this story.  They added so much to the book. 

AAR has a magical way she writes her alpha heroes.  If you alike a strong sexy man and a female lead who is equally as strong, I would highly suggest these stories.  This was a 4/5 read for me.  They are not overly long and detailed books.  Spending a couple hours by the pool this summer, this is the perfect light and funny read.
