Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey Book Summary


In the follow-up to It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey delivers another deliciously fun rom-com about a former player who accidentally falls for his best friend while trying to help her land a different man…

King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he’s a guaranteed good time—in bed and out—and that’s exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She’s immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his… personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.

Now, Hannah's in town for work, crashing in Fox’s spare bedroom. She knows he’s a notorious ladies’ man, but they’re definitely just friends. In fact, she's nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport’s resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker’s eye… yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can't deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost. 

Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she’s walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and… and… man overboard! He’s fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he’s all in, she'll choose him instead?

Such a great love story. I liked It Happened One Summer, but I LOVED Hook, Line, and Sinker!! It was such a good, slow, beautiful love story that had me wrapped in it and unable to put it down. I have to admit, I was reluctant to read it, and kept putting it off, because often the sequels of these romance novels aren’t as good. But I was so pleasantly surprised. Team Hannah and Fox!!

Loved and will read again. Considering that this is a sequel to “It Happened One Summer” I thought i was just gonna read about what her sisters story but instead I was engulfed in the most relatable book about Hannah and Fox. Even though there were times were I was annoyed or had an eye roll moment it was still a great book and would read it again, wishing to get a physical copy for the next read.

PERFECT. JUST PERFECT. How I loveeeee this boook!!! Definitely one of my BEST READ THIS YEAR!!

Really cute read.. I really enjoyed learning about Fox’s character arc. It wasn’t as spice as ‘It Happened One Summer’ however reading about how Fox pines after Hannah is pretty cute and makes for a great soft romance story. I would love to read more about the sisters because I love both of their characters.

4 Stars!. 4 Stars! This is book 2 in the ‘Bellinger Sisters’ series and can be read as a standalone. I missed book 1 and would’ve liked to know how the main characters met and got their nicknames but it wasn’t anything I absolutely needed to know before reading this one. This was a really cute read. However, I couldn’t really get into the book because I thought the main male character, Fox, had stupid hang ups about relationships. I kept thinking “seriously? Get over it already man!” and I couldn’t get past that. I kept waiting for Hannah, the main female, to say something to that extent but she has the patience of a saint! Ha! Still an entertaining book though. *I received this book at no charge & I voluntarily left this review.*

AMAZING. Sooooo good! Honestly better than it happened one summer. Such a full circle amazing story. I love fox and Hannah’s love story. The epilogue made me melt and so happy!

Better than the first!. Definitely loved this book and a lot more than the first! Enjoyed the storyline more :)

Couldnt get through it. I loved the first part of the book; this one just didnt do it for me.

i have no words. it was absolutely fantastic. i cried, laughed, and positively screamed with joy over this book. i loved it!!!

Bored. I grew a bit tired of Fox’s insecurities & Hannah’s coming of age. Needed subPlots

IHOS was better!. I did not enjoy this story as much as Hannah’s and Brendan’s, but I still love Tessa!!

Must get!. Loved! I was so excited that there was a sequel to the 1st book. I loved it and can’t wait to read more!! Hopefully Foc and the whole gang will make an appearance

Already want to read it again!. Such a fun read! The characters are so well done! This book is even better than the first one. I literally stayed up all night! Could not put it down!

and the sinker did the trick. a girl who sees the goodness inside of a boy who only sees himself as broken? just lovely.

Review. Loved loved loved

Good. This book is decent but the story isn't relatable to me and i made the fatal mistake of comparing it to the first book. The first one was so good and i feel as though this one falls short in comparison.

MUST READ!!!. Man!! I LOVED It Happened One Summer but this was by far the better of the two. I am so happy that this book was able to be adapted from characters in the previous book. Read in one day and it was definitely worth it. Normally epilogues aren’t page turners but this one had me crying happy tears late into the night. Definitely worth the buy!

Audiobook review. The audiobook version is awful, the narrator mispronounced so many words, I was more focused on how she said things than the story. Story was just ok.

I loved it. I couldn’t put the book down! I loved the first one and was just as excited to follow Hannah’s story. I couldn’t wait to find out how their “relationship” played out and wished the ending had more chapters to it. I needed to know more!

Fun, amazing characters. Production assistant Hannah recommends the quaint fishing village where her late father grew up as the ideal location for the film she's working on. While there, she bunks with her totally platonic friend Fox, who's got a reputation as an incorrigible ladies' man. Which is fine, because she's trying to hook up with the film's director. She and Fox are just friends. Except for the super inconvenient sensual tension that neither one of them can seem to resist. And a drunken kiss they can't forget. Okay, fine, they have a thing for each other, but they live in different states and don't want to ruin their friendship. The longer Hannah stays, though, the more she and Fox want more from the relationship. Can they find a way to make it work? If you enjoyed IT HAPPENED ONE SUMMER, you'll definitely want to read this book. And if you didn't read the first book in the series, go and read that one first. You don't have to, because this one stands alone, but the reading experiences are similar and you'll enjoy the series more if you read the books in order. Hannah and Fox are fun, amazing characters. They both underestimate themselves, and through their friendship, they come to realize they're already the person they aspire to be—they just need to believe in themselves. This book really nails the friends-to-lovers trope: the camaraderie, the sensual tension, the unwillingness to jeopardize one of the best relationships in their lives. This couple is well-matched, with complementary qualities but also a willingness to grow together. Plus, the sensuality between them is off the charts. There are also charming side characters that make the novel even more endearing. The audiobook narration added to the enjoyment of the story. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Best in the two book series. I’ve read this back to back 4 times. I do recommend reading “It Happened One Summer” the first book in the series first. Although, I didnt do this and read this as a stand alone first. I believe it is amazing both ways, but the first book has a bonus chapter that totally adds to the experience of the book. Absolutely in love this these two books together. Gah! Swooning each time I read this book.

Just as good as the first.. Loved this sequel. It was the perfect addition to the story to read about Hannah and Fox’s love story. Their love was different than Brendan and pipers but still so undeniable. The character development was a little predictable but still special. The ending being so many years in the future was so sweet and rounded it out perfectly.

4.5 Stars!. Can I just jump straight to the epilogue and tell you that it totally made me swoon??? Seriously, every romance novel should end on a note like this one did. All the struggle this couple went through to get that ending was so worth it. Fox and Hannah have a friends to lovers story that was also a slow burn. You can see that they both are attracted to each other, and they both have some obstacles standing in their way. Fox's was a bit of a surprise for me. He's the ultimate good looking guy who doesn't have to try for attention. He gets it with his looks alone. You'd think that would be what every guy wants, but not Fox. We got a good look into how even being extremely good looking can have a downside to it. Hannah put her issues perfectly in this book. She see's herself as the supporting actress in life, never the leading lady. What she doesn't know is that to Fox, she is the leading lady. I adored Fox and Hannah's friendship. It was a great foundation to building more between them. I think it's also why I loved that epilogue so much. Great read!

I will try. You guys are saying that this is good so I will try to see if it is good and if it is I will let you guys know i will given this 2 stars just for now

Ok. I’m a little in love with Fox. Bailey won me back with this one. My heart was invested by the end of the first text message.

I can’t stop re-reading this book!. Tessa has outdone herself with this book!

It’s alright…. Definitely not her one of her best ones… I had to keep putting this one away to go reread some of her other stories for the passion and plot. Then I got all of the alerts about this being a quick Netflix romcom and that’s when it made sense these two stories are quick throw aways. Amazing for Netflix (it’s Tessa Bailey duh) but for the price and what this author has to offer with their other stories? Not worth it. I would pick up one of the alpha stories or runaway girl before this. Seriously. It. Was. Slow. As. F$*/?)@

Love it!. GAHHH I love this book so much. I started off with “ it happened one summer.” But my heart ache every time I read the last sentence and close the book. This book truly has a place in my heart !! <3

Excellent Read!. Started to read and couldn’t stop!

Loved it!. Charming and a perfect beach read!

Love this book. Love it. Read both and love both

So much better.. Hannah and Fox story was a much more enjoyable read then Piper and Brenden’s.

oh my lord 😭😭😭. FOXXXXXX 😭😭💔😭 HANNAAHHHH 😭😭😭💔💔💔😭😭😭 MY STINKAASSSSS 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗

So good. I just reread it for the third time, and I cried just as much as the first. Like violently sobbing in bed at 3 a.m. This book is so good and deserves so much. I personally liked it better than It Happened One Summer. The vibes are good. It makes me so sad and so happy and so sad. Read it. Now.

AMAZING. Couldn’t put it down

Great start, ok middle, mushy end. I did enjoy this book. It absolutely is not as good as the first book in my opinion. I didn’t particularly like quite how cheesy it was at the end or how the main characters are SO self deprecating (almost to an annoying amount). But it’s a sweet story nonetheless.

Steamy feel-good friends-to-lovers. Tessa keeps you waiting and it’s so worth it!

Best romance book ever!!!. I don’t get people who say this book wasn’t as good as the first one or that it was boring??? Like hello??? It’s one of the best romance books ever!!!!

Love love love. I loved this book so much! Gravitated towards Hannah and Fox more than I thought I would! Didnt think this could top the first book but it definitely did in my opinion

It was ok. It wasn’t bad but it felt like a whole lot of back and forth from the male lead with little pay off in the end. Fell short in comparison to “it happened one summer”.

Messy plot. Let down by this as a sequel to “it happened one summer”. This felt all over the place, it was reading constant self doubt and negative thoughts. Usually love everything Tessa Bailey but this was a let down for me.

So good. This was great

10/10 loved this story. Read in 1 day could not put this book down

Nailed it. Highly recommend it

Amazing. Hooked you in hundred percent. Amazing
