Publisher's Summary

He wants revenge, but he wants her more.

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 in the Never After Series: A collection of dark romances where the villain gets the girl. It is not a literal retelling. It is a dark, contemporary romance (not a fantasy) featuring mature themes and content that may not be suitable for all audiences. Listener discretion is advised.

Cleverly sucks you in…

I started this book because the storyline interested me. A play on Peter Pan but not at all Peter Pan - a story of “even bad guys need love too.” I enjoyed the clever way the author wove pieces of Perter Pan lore through the story and found myself chuckling a few times at the wittiness. I finished the entire audio book in about 3 sittings. I normally just listen to books as I commute but I couldn’t wait to keep listening to this one. I gave the overall rating 4 stars because I did have a hard time with just how “bad” this guy was - and he’s horrible. I thought several times that I would not be swayed to understand this “love” story because honestly the guy, Hook, should be in prison. But, I was won over and I enjoyed the story more than I thought I would.

The performance was very good. The two performers narrate chapters separately and they present chapters written from their character’s point of view. Because of this, they each perform the opposite character’s voice during their chapter and that took me a bit to get used to hearing.

As I mentioned, I found this quite enjoyable overall. It’s the kind of book that drew me in and I’m afraid the next one I read will be a let down after this one. Just a recommendation - You might consider listening with headphones on if you aren’t alone. It’s quite throughly descriptive, if you know what I mean, in both horrifying and pleasing ways.

Not what I thought ..

I almost stopped reading it just because of the accents. The female accents were so shrill and annoying! Wendy’s wasn’t bad, but her “friends”, omg. Peter sounded like he had a stick up on his butt every time.
The story felt rushed, the characters weren’t very developed. The sexy scenes also felt rushed and misplaced at times.
There were some good twists- especially in the last hour of the book.
I do feel it was concluded well and questions were answered.
Not sure that I would use a credit for another one of her stories.

I enjoyed the story and how it correlates to Peter pan. I love dark romances. The audio was good didn't sound like robots and had emotion.

perhaps I'm not quite the romance novel type

I didn't get beyond the 5th chapter. Dialog with phrases like "my elongated cock" sound like a one night stand rather than a nice elongated, well developed relationship with a good book.

Good Praise Kink Dark Romance

If you like being called a “good girl” then this book has plenty of that with its many spicy scenes. This is not a retelling of Peter Pan, and it is not a fairytale/supernatural story. For example, there is a drug called pixie in the book- there are no fairies. It is fun to see where the elements of the Peter Pan story come into this story. The pacing is great, and the two narrators are in sync as they switch off each chapter. I finished this book in one sitting and loved it.

Great story

I loved this story, and the audiobook had some great moments, but I do have to say the “Boston” accents were really irritating, and I think detracted from the performance a little.

it's worth the credit spent

some twists and turns along the the way, some predictable an a couple of surprises thrown it. this is not a retelling of the story of Peter pan it simply uses some of the characters and names etc from within the story.

Great! ... after you stomach the beginning

At first, I was disappointed. Writing, characters, presumed plot, it all seemed so cheesy. BUT!
Somewhere around middle things got very interesting. I could not put it down!
The quality of 🌶 is also pretty good. At least for my taste, somewhat inexperienced in mafia/dark romances.

Perfect

I love a good retelling and this book is so good . Love Hook and Wendy and didn’t see that ending coming . You’ll never look at Peter Pan the same again after listening to this.

raging misogyny and abuse

This is violently misogynistic and abusive, and the storyline of the submissive turning into the dominant is tired and boring. The voice actors are great as themselves, and not very good at other genders. If I had paid for this, I would be returning it. Don't waste your time.

Not what I had heard it was.

This book was everywhere I turned and so highly recommend. Maybe it just isn't what I like. I may have liked it more if I'd read it instead.

DNF

Struggled to finish. The characters are unsure of their own personality. Wendy is sick of being controlled but willingly submits to the controlling Hook. Just one example. Plot starts off strong as a dark romance that turns into a sickly sweet, confusing, romance.

Performances excellent, story is ok

I enjoyed it overall and the voice actors did a fantastic job. I thought the story a little Juvenile in places but overall it’s a decent listen. It get very violent and VERY spicy, so if you like sex and blood in your stories you will enjoy this.

Great book!!

You’ll be glad you listened. I will be listening to this again soon. Narration was great.
This is not a retelling of an older story which has adult situations.
