Fox Thornton, a king crab fisherman, is known for his sexiness and easygoing flirting. He enjoys the fact that everyone knows he will provide a good time, whether in or out of bed. Then he runs into Hannah Bellinger. She is not impressed by his looks or charisma, but she does like his… personality. And would like to be pals? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to take the chance on a fling, so they’ll just be friends.
Hannah is now staying at Fox’s place while in town for work. Even though she is aware of his reputation as a player, their relationship is strictly platonic. In fact, she has a hopeless crush on a coworker and thinks Fox would be perfect for her love life. Hannah plans to get the attention of her coworker with the help of some advice from Westport’s resident Casanova, but the more time she spends with Fox, the more she finds herself attracted to him instead. Hannah admits she has feelings for Fox, but she won’t cross the line between platonic and sexual interest with him.
He thought that sharing a house with his best buddy would be simple. Except now she’s sleeping across the hall in a towel while Fox fantasises about spending the rest of his life with her, and… and… man overboard! He’s really smitten with her. It’s torture to help her flirt with another guy, but maybe if Fox faces his own issues and proves to Hannah that he’s serious, she’ll pick him.
Tessa Bailey’s second rom-com, after the hit It Happened One Summer, is about a former player who falls in love with his best friend while trying to help her get over another man.

Hook, Line, and Sinker Book Summary
Does Tessa Bailey have any writing limitations? Hook, Line, and Sinker solidified her place as one of my favourite authors.
Fox and Hannah’s desire to one another has been simmering from the first time they met. Fox may have a reputation as a ladies’ man, but it would be risky for him to pursue Hannah because she is the younger sister of his friend’s fiancée. Now that they’ve established themselves as friends, they text each other constantly and reveal their innermost secrets. Will Hannah’s temporary relocation to Fox’s home for work purposes prompt them to open out to one another about their feelings?
The first few chapters of this book were very sweet. There was a lot of tension between them despite their public declarations of platonic friendship. Fox needs to give Hannah relationship advice because she has a crush on her boss and can’t figure out how to get him. I nearly lost consciousness from laughter and joy.
As the novel progresses, though, I found myself losing interest about the halfway point. It dragged on and on, rather than moving at the usual brisk speed. Every time I suggested that Fox and Hannah be together, either one of them would come up with a new reason (or the same old argument) why they shouldn’t.
To be fair, I always have higher expectations for the friends-to-lovers cliche than I end up enjoying it. In retrospect, I feel somewhat indifferent about similar works I’ve read. Reason being, you can’t keep readers engaged for three hundred pages with two buddies who are obviously attracted to each other but are too slow or hung up to realise it. As a result, this disagreement escalated beyond its original cause due to the emphasis placed on seemingly insignificant details.
To prevent a new reader from exploding in front of the pages, I always feel the need to warn people that Tessa Bailey romances are really spicy. However, it wasn’t too sizzling. If the suspense wasn’t as strong as usual, it may be because the tale dragged on a bit, but it could also be because the hotness level fell down a notch. It’s still steamy, though not quite as hot as I see Tessa Bailey making it.
I realise I make this seem bad, but please don’t take me the wrong way. Tessa Bailey has the ability to breathe life and emotion into even the most mundane subject matter. Therefore, there is no doubt that this is a fantastic book to read. But no matter how good a writer she is, the cliche she’s working with isn’t that interesting. Within those parameters, though, she composed the version I like best. And that’s saying something.
