Hooked On You
Hooked On You
Maple Falls Romance #1
By Kathleen Fuller

Riley McAllister is living her dream life - at least that is what she is presenting to her followers on social media. So yeah, that may be a bit of an exaggeration. Sure her bank account is inching closer to the red. And she may have to have a second job to support her dream job. But image is everything and online she is lookin' good. 

But then she gets "the call" - her grandmother, Mimi, has broken her leg and needs her to come home and help her out. Maple Falls is the last place she ever wanted to return to. Returning home is admitting defeat and that she may have made a mistake - Nope not happening ever! But she's not about to leave Mimi in need. A quick trip should soon set everything right and she can get back to NYC and the perfect world she created for herself even if it isn't real but it is hers.

Hayden Price had finally made it to the major league until an injury sidelined him permanently. Now he's using his baseball skills to coach Maple Falls newest softball team. It's not his dream but he is glad to be home with his family and friends. What he doesn't realize is that Riley's Mimi is about to play matchmaker and he's her choice for Riley. Now she may have ulterior motives but she has Riley's best interests at heart. But you can't force something no matter how much you want to.

Hooked on You is a sweet read. Riley is a broken person (whether or not she knows it) and her grandmother Erma wants more than anything for Riley to see herself for the person she truly is. But Riley has been taught from a young age that she can trust no one and it is the one lesson from her mother that she has taken to heart, that and she doesn't want to be seen as a failure like her mother was.

Maple Falls is the perfect small town. That isn't to say that life is perfect here but if you want to experience small-town living this book will let you do so without having to relocate. Everyone knows everything about you (and if they don't know all the details they can make an educated guess which may or may not be correct) and they are more than willing to make it their business to help you achieve the perfect life. It's not that they're nosy or busybodies, nope it is just that they care! And if they can help you find romance, friendship, and a place to belong they are more than willing to give it a go.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.


Title: Hooked On You
Series: Maple Falls Romance #1
Author: Kathleen Fuller
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: May 11, 2021
Genre: Contemporary Romance (clean/sweet)

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.
