Publisher's Summary

Only bad boys go to prison....

To everyone else in town, Zack is just an ex-con. All he wants is to be an MMA fighter, and good girl Mia is the only one who knows he's going to be a daddy.

I f - ked up. I lost a year of my life and my MMA career to prison, and I earned every day of that sentence. But I did it for a woman. To protect her and our unborn child. And then I found out it was all a lie. When I got out, I vowed I'd never make the same mistake again. Until I met Mia. I told myself no distractions. No complications. I was dedicating my life to training. To fighting. So why do I find myself wanting to fight for her?

Hooked is a standalone novel of 40,000 words with no cheating, no cliffhanger and an HEA ending.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    "Better Than Expected!"


    For a story under four hours, Hooked was well written, had a good pace and a captivating plot. Perfect for those who want a complete short story. This is the typical boy saves girl, they talk, go out, date, fall in love, but with a surprising twist I haven't seen in any other story. Zack's made bad choices and ended up spending a year in prison. He's out now and just wants to get his life back on track and not have any distractions. When he see's a women being attacked by two men in an alley, he steps in and stops them. They end up going out and she offers to let him train for a fight at the gym she manages. They're attracted, have good chemistry and everything is looking good until Zack feels betrayed by Mia. Overall, for a short story, this was decent. I would love to see it extended because the twist does bring some angst between the characters.

    Logan McAllister did a really good job on the narration. I was able to easily distinguish between the characters.

    My review is based on reviewing this from a short story perspective and agree with the other positive reviews, this story is a two thumbs up! I was voluntarily provided this free review audiobook copy by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Well written"

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Pleasantly surprised at how well developed this story was especially for a short book. Flowing smoothly , stayed cohesive despite gaps of time. The romance had everything a longer book has , but it sizzled.

    The narrator's voice for OK ....needs to differentiate better between male and female characters Felt a bit odd hearing a man speak Mia's inner thoughts would have preferred a female voice i....personnel view

    A dfinate listen recommendation 😀

    Story
    "Two People Fate Put Together"

    I received the audio book from the author, narrator or publisher for an honest review received through Audiobook Boom.

    Zach is an MMA fighter just being released from a year in prison for breaking and entering. Mia is a recent college graduate workings for her stepfather at one of his gyms. Circumstances place them in positions to help one another despite each having had a bad experience with their last partner.
    One thing I liked about this story was Zac was not a man who're but was sweet loving and faithful. He didn't have a history of sleeping around either. How refreshing! Both Zamia and Zac were likable. There are people and circumstances that cause problems but they don't go on forever
    I liked the narrators voice but he sounded rushed st times and didn't convey as much emotion as I would have liked but he did well with women's voices with out making them sound odd
    You'd enjoy this story nice light sweet with a little steam romance. I'd read more in the series.

    "GREAT BIG STORY IN A SHORT BOOK"
    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Wow was I surprised at how visually full and how well developed the characters were for a short book. The writing was smooth; everything stayed cohesive despite large gaps of time. The romance had everything a big book has even the big surprise hurdle... and the sex came late, but it sizzled.

    Loved the narrator's voice for both H and h. I was only disappointed that he didn't keep the same voice for spoken and inner. Felt a bit odd hearing a man speak Mia's inner thoughts injected between the higher pitch "she saids."

    Two strong THUMBS UP for this reviewer!!

    Story
    "Pretty good"

    Recent college graduate Mia meets Zack, a former MMA fighter when he saves her from a dangerous situation. Although they have very different backgrounds, they form an instant bond.
    What I liked: I really liked the concept and storyline. The story is sexy and steamy. It was a very quick read. I went into this book blind and wasn’t aware it was a secret baby story, so I won’t hold the irresponsible behavior against the main characters  I’m a huge fan of the Bad Boy with a heart of gold. Zack embodies that persona. I really enjoyed his character development.
    What didn’t work for me: The heroine isn’t very smart for a twenty-something. She’s sweet, but very immature. I’m not a fan of women making stupid choices that put themselves in danger. My other complaint is that the story felt rushed to me. It could have been fleshed out a little more to increase the impact.
    Audiobook review: The audiobook narration was pretty good. Not excellent, but not horrible either. The pace was great, but I didn’t enjoy his attempts at sounding feminine voices.
    Overall, I enjoyed this quick read. I rate it 3.5 Stars.
    I voluntarily reviewed and ARC provided by the author.

    What did you love best about Hooked?

    Zack's back story and the overall arc the story made


    What other book might you compare Hooked to and why?

    I would rather say what is unique about this book. I love that I had a complete story in less than four hours!!! That was refreshing


    Have you listened to any of Logan McAllister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first! I enjoyed it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Once he gets his hooks into you, you are a goner!


    Any additional comments?

    I received this from audiobook boom in exchange for an honest review. This was a great book to listen to on my commute!
