“Stacey Lynn always knows how to perfectly balance sexy and sweet.”
—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne
Hooked on Her, an all-new fun and flirty forbidden romance from Stacey Lynn is out now!
Tessa Chauncy is the best kind of trouble. Beautiful, sweet and completely off limits. I’ve sat by and watched other men drool after her and forced myself to stay in check. Hey, I’m in the NHL… I have self-control in spades.
Except when it comes to her.
With the bat of her lashes and quick whip of that sharply pointed tongue Tessa can knock grown men to their knees. I’ve seen them wither and crumble under her confident stare— something I’m pretty sure she learned from sparring with me, thankyouverymuch.
But I’m not just falling for her. I’m down for the count.
She’s the girl I wanted, when wanting her was wrong.
She’s also my new roommate–
And oh yeah, my best friend’s little sister.
Heaven help me, I’m probably going to get his fist to my face or his hockey stick shoved in very dangerous places for what I’m about to do, but I don’t think I care anymore.
I’m in love with my best friend’s little sister….and I’m done waiting.

This was a cute little book that was well written and definitely kept my attention. It’s a little sister/brother’s best friend romance. Tessa has had a rough go. Her now ex-fiancé has drained her savings and cleaned out everything in their apartment in Toronto. She is completely deflated and devastated.
She goes to North Carolina to stay with her hockey playing brother and girlfriend to figure out her next move. Only while there, she has to put up with her brother Sawyer’s best friend Jason. When they say there is a thin line between love and hate, it rings true between Tessa and Jason. They are downright mean to each other and have been for years! But is it because they hate each other or out of sexual frustration for each other??? Once Jason finds out that Tessa is no longer engaged and staying in the United States, he knows it’s the perfect time to finally tell her how he has always felt about her.
Will these two fight feelings that have been brewing for years or will Tessa pack up and head back to Toronto? This was a great little love story that had funny one liners, heartfelt moments and some steamy scenes. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.
I scoop more chicken onto a folded chunk of naan and moan as I savor the taste. There are some decent restaurants where I live, all within walking distance, which is a bonus, but none are as good as Tandor’s. I can’t even piece together what makes it so delicious but it’s mouth-watering amazing.
“Jesus, Tessa. Can you not sound like you’re having an orgasm when you eat?”
I choke on my chicken and wash it down with my water. “Don’t like it, you can leave.”
“But then I won’t be able to share with you why I’m here.”
The chicken I’ve devoured rolls in my stomach. Obviously it’s not because he’s a nice guy. I lean back in my chair. “What is it?”
He huffs a laugh and I hate he looks so damn good, smirking at me, shaking his head like I’m some amusing little thing.
“You’re cute, Tessa. I ever tell you that?”
“I think the day you took me to get stitches in my head, yeah. You bopped me on the nose with a finger and said ‘cute and tough, nice’ before ignoring me the rest of the weekend.”
I’m mortified with myself. He’s not supposed to know these things, know how much I remember every.single.encounter with him ever.
His mouth opens a bit and he stares at me. Yeah. That dose of word vomit probably surprises the hell out of him too. But hell, in for a penny. He says he doesn’t give a shit about what Sawyer thinks? He should know what I think.
“I’m pretty sure that’s the day I started having a crush on you.”
He doesn’t take his eyes off me as he chews on what I think is chicken tikki masala. Slowly, he swallows and sets his own fork down. Leaning forward, elbows on the table, I’m tempted to drop my gaze to his mouth and watch his full lips move so sexily as he opens his mouth and asks, “Want to know when it started for me? When I started facing the reality that it was my best friend’s little sister that made my dick hard in my dreams at night and when I was on the road?”
