Product description

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

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.
.
🌶🌶🌶.5/5
.
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Bailey is an incredible author
Reviewed in Australia on 13 March 2022
Instagram @Becsbookshelf_

“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.

AND THE DAMN EPILOGUE!!!

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.
