5.0 out of 5 stars I read this in one sitting! Was so amazing!
Reviewed in Australia on 7 March 2022
“You can’t live life worrying about what people think. You’ll wake up one day, look at a calendar and count the days you could have spent being happy.”
When I tell you I dropped all of my current reads to read this the second I got it and consumed it in one sitting.. I was HOOKED.. (see what I did there, comedian I know)
I read It happened one summer a few months back and while I did like and enjoy it, I wasn’t hooked but I was super invested in Hannah and Fox just from the little snipets we got to see of them so to explore their story I knew I would dive in to this book and boy am I glad I did!
I LOVED this entire book from start to finish. I loved both Hannah & Fox equally, I related to Fox’s family scenario a lot so that’s possibly why I connected to the book.
I would 100% recommend this & sure you can read this as a stand-alone but I will say you would be missing a lot of the back story and if you read this first you’ll ruin the first one so do yourself a favour and read them both in order

“How did I look at her? He was afraid to find out. Ah, son. Like a summer day showing up after a hundred years of winter.”

Fox Thornton had a reputations for being a playboy and a guaranteed good time in bed, just don’t expect breakfast in the morning. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger, aka Piper’s sister.

Hannah is immune to Fox’s charm but quite enjoys spending time with him. When she returns to LA she keeps in touch with Fox and their pair begin texting up a storm. Hannah ends up back in Westport for work and stays in Fox’s spare room as just a friend. Hannah had her eye set on a colleague when she set out to get him to notice her.

What Fox realises when watching Hannah is that he’s fallen for her. Hannah realises at the same time that she’s head over heels for Fox but cautious knowing his ways. As the line between friends and flirting gets thinner and thinner they two cannot deny the chemistry between them.

Hannah refuses to be another notch is Fox’s bedpost and Fox cannot commit to anyone, she’s just not wired that way. Sometimes it takes loosing what you never knew you had before you can really understand how much you care about someone.

While you definitely don’t need to read It Happened one Summer prior to reading Hook, Line and Sinker but I recommend you do. I personally enjoyed this more than the first one, I loved how broody Fox is and independent Hannah is and their combined love for music was perfection.


I’ve added every song Bailey references in the book to a Spotify playlist, links in my highlights if you want to listen to it while you read the book. I love Baileys novels and can’t wait for the next one.
