Genre: Romance, Dark
Once Upon A Time, there was a little boy.
His belly full of laughter, his life full of joy.
Until one day, something changed; stripped his innocence away.
The hole inside making space for the devil to come and play.
His dreams gone forever, he grew up way too fast.
An endless night of crocodiles, and watches made of glass.
He grew into a villain, the taste of vengeance on his tongue.
Craving to make his enemies pay for the misdeeds they had done.
Instead he found a darling girl, and refused to let her go.
For what better way to make the man pay, than to steal his little shadow.
*Hooked is a full-length, complete standalone and the first in The Never After Series: A collection of fractured fairy tales where the villains get the happy ever after. This is a DARK Contemporary romance (not a literal retelling and not fantasy) featuring mature themes and content that may not be suitable for all audiences. Reader discretion is advised.*
Each book in this series is standalone with a different story and set of characters. I found Hooked to be a unique retelling of Peter Pan. Instead of being in a fantasy world, it was set in modern times, and Hook was merely a street name as he and his “lost boys” were selling a drug called “pixie”. The 2nd half took a turn, and I was left to guess where the story would go next. Fortunately, I was never right and surprised right up until the end.
I give Hooked by Emily McIntire 5 out of 5 stars.
