Hook (Neverland Novels Book 2) by Gina L. Maxwell is an emotionally satisfying read that kept me on the edge of my seat. From the gorgeous and sexy cover, to the very last page, this story has everything I was looking for in my book adventure and yes, I was willfully captured by Hook ;). I hope you will be too.
If you grew up on stories Neverland and Peter Pan escaping the villainous Hook, grab your bag and get ready to set sail on a new adventure. A modern version M/M romance is captivating, daring, bold and brave. This emotional journey is one that I wanted to never end as quickly devoured this in less than two hours. I know there is more to this series and while I want to read it now, I will patiently wait ;).
