Publisher's Summary

New Year's resolution: Get V-Card stamped 

Wesley Moore is a walking wet dream. Literally. He's on the school's swim team - and absolutely gorgeous in Speedos. He also has a reputation. I figured he'd be perfect to pop my cherry with no strings attached. One night. That was all I wanted. 

How was I supposed to know that he's made a bet with his roommate to fix his reputation? 

How was I supposed to know he wants romance now? 

I'm not looking for a boyfriend. My crazy family would never accept Wes...or any other boy I brought home. 

I need to get him to sleep with me before I fall for him, and there's only one way to do it. Lace. I've got a whole box full of secret weapons, and I'm not afraid to use them. 

Hook, Line & Sinker is a 68,000-word stand-alone m/m romance with little angst and lots of laughter, featuring a nerd and a jock, too many pies, awkward attempts at being cool, insane relatives, and two boys who make it work in spite of everything. Buy now if you need a laugh!

sweet.

It's review time 🎧
Warning ⚠️: mm romance, comedy, virgin, sweetness overloaded, second book in a series, standalone.

Narrator score🎧 ; John is a wonderful narrator i loved his work and it was very good as always.

Level of steam🔥: well, it was a slow burn , a funny one and I totally loved it.

Level of anxiety and sadness0😱😢: the book wasn't sad, yeah you had that not so bright father in the story. But that's that. The story was sweet, funny, and adorable.

The book itself📖: its a second book in a series, it is a full on standalone so don't worry if you hadn't listen to the first book, (thought the first book is as good as that one)
I loved the characters in that one, they were easy going as was the story. And I love the aunt she is sweetly creepy and endearing.
I just loved everything about the book.

Great follow-up book

This book is the story of Oliver, the cousin of Ben whom we met in book one of the series, and Wesley, manwhore extraordinaire. Oliver needs Wesley’s help with a problem but little does he know Wesley has sworn off sex for 30 days. Ms. Byrde writes with great humor and compassion. Her characters are well written and well rounded. I like that some characters from book one followed to book 2. The book has good pacing and reads quickly. This book can be read as a stand-alone without any issues.

The narrator was very enjoyable and seemed to really fit the material

Woke My Husband Up Laughing (so good)

Fake the Date was so much fun, but I am in love with Wes and Oliver. It gave me how to lose a guy in 10 days vibes, but SO much better! I made the mistake of starting this while I was trying to fall asleep. Brakes to say I got no sleep and actually woke my husband up because I couldn’t laugh quiet enough.

The opposing motives make for hilarious times and I could not stop laughing. There was a great balance of emotion and humor with just enough heat. Definitely need to check it out if for no other reason than John Solo being amazing!

Loved this story!!

Oliver want to lose his virginity. He makes a New Years resolution, he gives himself a month do lose his v card. Wesley does not have luck when it comes to relationships. Wes’s roommate makes a bet with him, date someone but you can have sex with them until after a month.
Oliver is in line to take over the family business. At Christmas his father gives him their family heirloom, the Golden TP. But he knows if his family finds out he’s gay he can kiss that future goodbye.
Wes and Oliver begin dating. Oliver’s goal, have sex, Wes’s goal not to have sex. But they end up getting more than they bargained for. Their relationship is really sweet. They are perfect for each other. One side character that I loved, aunt Rosie! She is my spirit animal!
John Solo is great as usual!!

Funny, Sweet and So Good!

John Solo's performance brings so much life into this adorable, feel good story. The different voices for characters truly adds the extra zing.

This well crafted story is filled with laugh out loud humor. Both main characters, Wesley and Oliver, were well developed. I look forward to seeing some of the secondary characters again (Aunt Rose).

extraordinarily humorous

I read this and fell in love, then I listened to it and totally lost my heart and soul! OMG! I'm totally dead and my sides are aching from laughing so much. Full on belly laughs, snorts, and tears in my eyes. I haven't laughed so much since "Fake the Date." Aunt Rosie delivers again in this fun fest. Lol. Oliver's mom and the pies, best of all shared with prejudiced dad. Love a supportive mama bear. There is never a dull moment and the laughs never stop!! This left me with an overwhelming feeling of joy, and I highly recommend it. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. John does a brilliant job of bringing the characters and storyline to life. Amazing!!

Catching Mr. Right

Hook, Line, and Sinker is the second book in the #LoveWins series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. Like the first book in the series, this book was full of humor, sassiness, and tenderness – all of this mixed together so well to create a wonderful romance that had me laughing and smiling the entire time. The chemistry between Oliver and Wesley was electric, and it definitely added to the humor of book. The audiobook was narrated by John Solo who does a fabulous job. John performs the book with just the right amount of energy and drama to bring it alive without overdoing it. All in all, this was a fun book that left a smile on my face.

Sweet and funny

After “Fake the date” I was very excited about this story and I was not disappointed.
It was fun to follow Wesley and Oliver’s development. The meeting of the two is not under a good star. After Wesley’s recent relationships have not gone so well, Wes decides that nothing sexual will happen in his next relationship for the first month. Oliver, on the other hand, wants to lose his virginity as quickly as possible, but at the same time his family cannot know that he is gay. Wes and Oliver are great characters.
"Hook, line & sinker” is a sweet story about coming out and self-esteem. And there wasn’t just one place I had to laugh. I love Aunt Rosie!
John Solo reads very well as always and brings the characters to life.
I highly recommend this audiobook!

Cute story

What are the odds that two men, who made decisions that are counterproductive to the other, come together and choose the other as their person? Pretty good in this book, The premise of this book is intriguing. The follow through was not disappointing. I found myself chuckling many times. Oliver’s mom is my new hero. Her pie scene had me trying to cover a laugh, while listening in bed, late at night. I enjoyed this story and felt the mcs had great chemistry.

John Solo did a good job with the narration. He is great at bringing life to the stories he narrates, and this one was no different.

Brill

This is a brilliant fun book I laughed when Oliver and Wesley saw each but they both had New Years resolutions which are the complete opposite of each other. They have hurdles to overcome with coming out and vindictive ex’s. The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

RomCom At It's Best

The story line was well developed as well as the characters' story.

Oliver a college student wants a someone to take his virginity before he graduates, preferably male, although his parents doesn't know he is gay. He has a crush on Wesley, who's on the swim team.
Wesley is know to be loose, he sleeps around a lot with both men and women, but he wants to change is persona. No hooking up for a month. When he started going on on dates with Oliver it became a struggle to keep to his decision.

It made me feel as though I was right there seeing everything unfold. This book is down pack with hilariousness that keeps you laughing all the time, especially the secondary characters... Love their antics.
At one point I just wanted to strangle Oliver's father, he just didn't know when to shut up. the boat scene was perfect at that point in time.

The side characters was a great addition to the story. Aunt Rosie as always did her thing. She's tenacious, always a support for her nephews. I like how she comes up with ideas that turn into money makers, although the things she does are more hilarious. The gifts she left for Oliver, her new creation of speedos with buttons on the front ... wow .. I like the idea of having to opening the front for easy access... I need to get me some of those...LOL
I laughed so much when Oliver's mother threw the pie in her husband's face.. he deserved that..

Thank you Ana Byrde for giving us Oliver and Wesley's story and thank you John Solo for giving these characters a voice.

Will Zach get his story?

Great nervous virgin story.

Oliver wants to lose his virginity and he decides Wes is the right guy for the job. Too bad for him that Wes has accepted a bet with his roommate that he can go a month without sex.

This was such a cute story. Oliver and Wes dance around each other quite a bit until they finally come clean with each other. There were a few sad places when Oliver finally comes out to his family but there were also many funny spots. I loved Oliver’s Aunt and the sexy gifts she left for him.

John Solo did his always fantastic job performing this story. He is one of the reasons that I love audiobooks so much. 🥰

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Cute

This was such a stinking cute story. School romances are great. Oliver and Wes were adorable. I loved listening to their awkward courting style. Like always John gives a magnificent performance.
