Review of ‘Hooked’ by Jaime Maddox.

After reading this book I realised that it was a sequel of ‘Deadly medicine’ so I think the publisher should clarify that in their description. However, this book stands alone without any major issues.


Maybe because I read this as a stand alone I didn’t have to battle against a dislike towards Jess (as other reviewers had) and the author describes her well in her contradictions and struggle to overcome her PTSD and addiction while also trying to find proofs against the serial killer who attacked her. So even though this book is categorised as a thriller and a romance, the balance leads more into the thriller and the romance part is left behind a bit. As a result, there is a whole lot of medical description regarding Jess’s fight against her addiction that could be excessive for some. That also applies for the extensive focus on Derek, the drug dealer character. I believe that the author could have developed more the chemistry between the main characters that was lost in the rest of the plot. But maybe the author is planning to develop this story in another sequel.

Overall, a good read, specially if you are interested in drug addiction issues. I’ll definitely read the first book in the series and any sequels if they come. 3.5 stars.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
