Title: Hooked On You (Maple Falls #1) by Kathleen Fuller
Genres: Contemporary Romance, Christian Fiction
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (May 11th, 2021)
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 received a free e-copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. A huge thank you to the author and publisher!*
When I saw the cover for Hooked on You and read the synopsis, I was instantly intrigued. I love to knit and crochet, so any time a book includes yarn, I’m interested. Throw in a sassy grandma and a reluctant romance and I am hooked (pun, most definitely, intended lol)! This book was such a delight to read.
One of my favorite aspects of this book were the characters. As a twenty-something who has no idea what she is doing with her life, I found Riley to be super relatable. I also loved her grandma, Erma. She was such a spunky, sassy character. She was probably my favorite, lol. Then there was Hayden… Oh my goodness, I loved his character so much! He was such a good guy. Being able to watch Riley and Hayden’s relationship unfold was oh, so sweet.
I also loved the small-town setting. Maple Falls has many busybodies but they’re all mostly well-meaning, lol. It was so quaint!
Hooked on You is a book that is filled with so much heart. It’s a book about learning to be true to yourself, loving others, and growing and learning. I absolutely adored everything about this one. I cannot wait for the next book in the series because I will, most definitely, be reading it! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet romance novel with a great cast of characters.
