He’s the bad boy biker she can’t resist.
I like my sex dirty and disposable. I'm not into commitment or chicks who want more than one night. My brothers and club come first, second and last.
Until she walks into my life. Classy, rich and so out of my league it's crazy. A week together should get her out of my system, but this good girl is so bad when we're all alone and I can't get enough of her.
I don't do forever, but she's hooked me so bad I don't ever want to let her go. Except there's no way a princess can live in my world and I sure as hell won't live in hers...
5 Stars: “Scorchingly hot reading with a touch of sweetness thrown in. The likeable characters of Zach and Grace steal your heart and the many secondary characters have their own shining moments. A great series starter.” - Talking Books Blog
4.5 Stars: “I have yet to read too many MC style stories but I was fascinated after reading the blurb for Hooked...Grace and Zach burn up the pages. I really enjoyed not only the storyline, the main characters, but also secondary characters. I can’t wait to read more from the other characters!” - Angela Kinney, Goodreads
4.5 Stars: “I loved this book! Yes, it was your typical "dirty talking biker devours poor little rich girl" story and it was all about sex, sex, sex ... and that's WHY I loved it!!! He might have been a rough biker before he met her, but for her, he was a giant teddy bear. They were sweet together. Don't get me wrong, they were burn up the sheets HOT too, but there was a special connection there. Looking forward to more in the series!” - Lynn Brooks, Thoughts of a Blonde
5 Stars: “Going in I knew Ms. Phillips has a knack for writing hot little reads, but she really surprised me with this one. These two had me feeling the flames, their story was so hot, every encounter they shared was filled with smoldering intensity, unbridled passion, & a scorching chemistry that had my tablet on the verge of melting several times!!” - Misty Pascoe, Red’s Romance Reviews
4 Stars: “The sexual chemistry between these two is off the charts. But they also mesh outside the bedroom. Zach gives Grace the needed push to reach for her dreams and Grace gives Zach the sense of love and family he's been missing for the past ten years. This was a quick, enjoyable read.” - Shannon Patel, Cocktails & Books Romance at Random
4 Stars: “This is the first book that I have read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. It was well written, had a great plot, highly entertaining, humorous, had the right amount of inner dialogue for each of the main characters, but also had plenty of interactions between them to keep things interesting, and made for a great read. It was a fantastic story, and a great beginning to this new series.” - Dawn Bryant, Goodreads
4 Stars: “I will be back for more Viking Bastards. I hope they are all as hot as Zach, and I can't wait to meet them. This book was a piece of candy that I ate a little too fast, but has me reaching for another…” - Erin Kelly, Coffee and Wine Book Blog
5 Stars: “I absolutely loved this book!! It's a super steamy and sexy bad boy meets good girl story. He's a rough biker, she's a spoiled rich girl. Together they just work. No woman has ever gotten to Zach but from the time he first sees Grace he knows he has to have her. What Grace thinks will be a one time walk on the wild side suddenly turns into so much more.” - Bette Hansen, Goodreads
4 Stars: “The sex in this story is scorching hot. I was worried at first (I know) that the book was pure erotica, but it just starts with a bang. The story is well developed and I found that it was so realistic….This is a great biker read! I have a recent fondness to this genre and this book was a great addition to my library!” - Kilts and Swords
4 Stars: “I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked Hooked...Hooked has lots of well-written sex but also has a great story that is romantic and fun. It is good girl / bad boy romance, and I think you’ll love this sexy story, especially Zach. He is a hardened, tough biker except when it comes to Grace.” - Janet Reads Books
3.5 stars !
Hooked is book one in the Viking Bastards MC series by author Christina Phillips. This story was quite enjoyable although I have to say that it was not what I expected. I wouldn’t classified it as an MC book as it was more centered around the H and h than club business. There was very... ...more
3.5 to 4*
I have to admit I enjoyed this book more than I expected, when I started reading I fully expected this to be a standard 3* read, not that there's anything wrong with that most of the books I read fall into that category.
While in many ways this was your typical rough and ready biker meet... ...more
☾I had no idea muffins and cupcakes could be so dirty. I honestly never thought I could like biker books so much, they just never interested me. Zach and Grace's story is incredibly unique, I have never read another story like this before.

Loved it! 5 star read!!!
This is a safe biker romance with choice smut thrown in to keep things lively. I hope the author keeps the rest of the series like this one. Please, please, PLEASE!!! Hooked was gritty but real, sexy and sweet. I loved every minute of it!!!

I'll admit it: this cover "hooked" me. (tee hee!) Between the cover and the motorcycle club being the "Viking Bastards", umm yeah, I was on board. This is my first book by Christina Phillips, but it will not be my last.

I enjoyed this. Not classic MC. Much sweeter.
I liked them together. They were hot!
I was annoyed by the short times apart. I wished they were more driven to be together.
The heroine was a bit oblivious at times, but not too annoying.

Hooked is the first in the Viking Bastards MC romance series, and delivers a scorchingly sexy story about a hotel heiress and a man from a vastly different world. In this romance, Grace finds herself in a not so great neighborhood with a broken down car. Having just ditched her fiance of four yea... ...more
I'm not sure how to start this review. Yes, the hero is part of an MC, but that's where anything that has to do with an MC ends. Hooked is more of a contemporary romance than anything MC. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the story, but if you're going in assuming the book would follow an MC formu... ...more
Oh gosh! I really liked this.

Simply put, HOOKED is a guilty pleasure read through and through! I wasn't the deepest of books, it wasn't a ball of angst, it wasn't a full out MC Romance, but damn it was GOOOOOOD!
Smoking Hot and Sexy as Sin, Christina Phillips literally opens with a bang and it just gets better and better. I r... ...more
This is not your hardcore biker book but it does give you a hot alpha man who is coming to terms that a woman can actually touch his heart. He is used to women touching everything but his heart so this is all new territory to him. Zach felt an attraction to Grace the moment she walked in to a bik... ...more

4 “I’m here, that should tell you something” Stars
Hooked is a lovely, light and fun romance. I practically read it in one sitting, and it had me smiling from start to finish. Hooked is a great story, what it isn’t is a Biker romance. Ok, it is in the sense that Zach, the hero, is part of an MC, h... ...more
Is it possible for a romance novel to be super cute while still being sexy as hell? Because that’s exactly what Hooked does! From the very first moment, I was hooked (ok bad pun is bad, I get it).
We start off with Grace’s POV, she’s having a pretty cruddy night. Then we switch to Zach’s POV. Afte... ...more
Grace finds herself broken down on the wrong side of town, with a dead cell phone. She has no other choice but to enter the bar and call for help. What happens when she has a wild night with a biker?

One dirty bad boy biker, Zach. Provides sex raw, rough, dirty, nasty, and a bit binding. But that was okay, this good girl, Grace, was willing to take a walk on the wild side for the night. She never bargained that it would lead to more. Scorched was most certainly on the menu.

Zach will leave you speechless with his blunt words and animal tendencies. Grace is his addiction and he's her temptation. Every wicked thought that pops into my head could not describe how sultry this couple could be. Steam practically singed my kindle. Ms. Phillips heats it up for sure. ...more
Rated 4.5 Stars.
Hooked was an apt name for this book. I was hooked immediately. Phillips gives us so much insight into Zach and Grace through their thoughts that it was easy to like them from the very beginning. The entire opening scene would give the reader much different impressions of the two... ...more
This was the first Christina Phillips book I've read, so I had no expectations going in. I am however a big MC romance fan and enjoy most books in that genre. I must say that the book was pretty good and had one hot tattooed alpha biker that made it that much more enjoyable.

Zach comes from a long line of leather clad men and motorcycles, it's the only life he has known, and damn sure the only life he wants to live. He is as tough and arrogant as they come, he doesn't do love, feelings or relationships, and his entanglements with the opposite sex are usually one nigh... ...more
