Review

"sizzles with romance and wit...Bailey expertly captures both the intense chemistry and true friendship between Hannah and Fox as she takes them through humorous mishaps and miscommunication. This sparkling rom-com will have readers hooked."  — Publishers Weekly

"Bailey continues the delightful story she began in the hilarious rom-com It Happened One Summer (2021), in which Californian Hannah met fisherman Fox... The music and seaside setting add flavor and color to this delicious, slow-burn love story." — Booklist

“A romantic comedy delight. If you loved Schitt’s Creek, It Happened One Summer will be your absolute jam.” — Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Soulmate Equation

“I put my entire life on hold the moment I opened It Happened One Summer. I read it in one long, luxurious sitting, reading each page twice, not wanting to miss a moment, and dreading The End. I knew I was reading one of my new favorite books, and I will reread it for years to come, whenever I need a dose of small-town coziness and hard-bodied sea captains. Tessa disarms you with a laugh, heats things up past boiling, and then puts a squeeze inside your heart. The tenderness, vulnerability and heat I am always guaranteed with a Tessa Bailey book are the reasons she is one of my all-time favorite authors.”  — Sally Thorne, USA Today bestselling author of Second First Impressions

"Her voice feels as fresh and contemporary as a Netflix rom-com...  Bailey writes banter and rom-com scenarios with aplomb, but for those who like their romance on the spicier side, she’s also the Michelangelo of dirty talk. She wields filth like Da Vinci does a paintbrush, and there’s a lot to be said for an author who can fill such exchanges with all the requisite heat, enthusiastic consent, and yes, even humor, of such a scenario without veering into corny territory."   — Entertainment Weekly

"Two delightful people find both themselves and true love in Tessa Bailey’s sequel to It Happened One Summer, Hook, Line, and Sinker... Bailey is a master at articulating emotion through both narrative prose and dialogue, and readers will feel everything going through the hearts of this charming yet imperfect couple. Every page in this fabulous novel is pure romance gold." — BookPage (Starred Review)

"Bailey’s plot is fast paced with plenty of humor laced throughout. Fox and Hannah are well-developed, likable characters with emotional depth that will resonate; they have a lot to overcome, but readers will be rooting for them."  — Library Journal (starred review & Pick of the Month)

"With her singular talent for writing romantic chemistry that is both sparkling sweet and explosively sexy, Tessa Bailey once again delivers—It Happened One Summer is everything I want in a modern romance, with two complicated, appealing leads, a setting that feels lived-in and also fresh, and storytelling you want to sink into even as you can’t stop turning pages. The total package from one of the genre’s very best." — Kate Clayborn, author of Love at First

"Tessa Bailey writes pure magic! It Happened One Summer has everything you could want in a rom-com—heartwarming romance, laugh-out-loud humor, and scorching hot chemistry between the lovable socialite and sexy ship captain. I absolutely loved it!" — Alexis Daria, bestselling author of You Had Me at Hola

“Bailey strikes rom-com gold in this outstanding tale... [She] is bound to earn new followers with love scenes hot enough to boil water and a hilariously naïve Schitt’s Creek-inspired protagonist who is clearly out of her depth.”  — Booklist (starred review) on It Happened One Summer

“I could not stop smiling. Romantic comedy perfection.” — Lauren Layne, New York Times bestselling author on Fix Her Up

“What presents itself as a light, sexy beach read transforms into a thoughtful exploration about identity … Come for the fun look at the workings of a film set and the maybe-more-than-friends “Bridgerton”-esque “I burn for you” tension, stay for the smart commentary on toxic masculinity, healing one’s inner child and how others perceive us shapes our own self-understanding.”
USA Today

“Readers may be sad to say goodbye to Westport, but they'll love to watch these two sail off into the sunset … Full of mutual pining and sweetness."
Shelf Awareness

“For readers who have been fans since Bailey’s debut, the love scenes do not disappoint, and the signature antics and comedic scenes that have you laughing and turning pages abound in the novel.” — BookTrib

“Get a beach towel, a comfy chair, a summer drink, and sink your whole self into this breezy rom-com for an hour or two of total relaxation. Tessa Bailey’s writing stands out in all the right sexy ways. It is truly nice to find a funny romance that sinks into complicated feelings about self-worth, giving way to a heartfelt story about the love we give ourselves… a tearjerker, and the tension is to die for. Tessa Bailey’s writing made every little scream I inflicted on my blanket worth it.” — Buzzfeed

3.0 out of 5 stars A 4 star read
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 11 December 2022
It was such a fresh read for me. A very different trope and spicy as always. Give it a try and you will realise that sometimes we don't need a whole town to believe in us but just one person.

The cover is not satisfactory. Delivery was fast and price was reasonable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and electric
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 12 December 2022
Hook, Line and Sinker by Tessa Bailey focuses on the younger Bellinger sister, following the events of It Happened One Summer. Hannah is back in town for her work, crashing at Fox's place, the resident playboy of the town. Hannah and Fox shared a touching moment at the end of last summer, which blossomed into friendship. Now that they are in close quarters, will this friendship move to something more?

Some books are there to make you smile, squeal and become starry eyed, Hook, Line and Sinker is one such book. Tessa Bailey has taken the Friends to Lovers trope by a storm with this one. Creating a story that's perfect to get lost in over a weekend, with its refreshing setting, cute characters and oh so amazing moments.

My favourite parts of the book were the mention of amazing music by Hannah. She is a music wiz and I've discovered some quality songs because of her. Someone really needs to create a Hannah playlist cause I'm all for it!

Read this one if you are looking for cute yet electric romance!
