How to Hook a Hottie by Tina Ferraro

Genre: YA Fiction

Author Website: www.tinaferraro.com

One Word Review: Amusing

First Line: “So, you and the baseball player,” prodded the twelve-year-old in te backseat of my car. “Is it true?”

Synopsis: “At 17, Kate Delvecchio has one goal in life: to become a millionaire before the age of 20. When Kate accidentally agrees to go to the sports banquet with the hottest guy at school, she stumbles upon a possible cash cow. The rest of the junior class is amazed that no-nonsense Kate could hook such a hottie, and one by one they approach her for help hooking their own. She doesn’t know anything about getting guys, but for $100 a pop, she’s more than willing to invent a six-step plan for How to Hook a Hottie. And how could that possibly backfire?” -GoodReads

Kathy’s Review: I enjoyed the story idea of the two best friends becoming matchmakers to earn a little extra money on the side. I liked Kate, although she was a little too business minded for me. I liked Dal (Kate’s longtime best friend), and could tell from a mile away that he was into Kate, even though he had a long-distance girlfriend of his own. Kate has her hands full managing her matchmaking business, her “relationship” with school hottie Brandon, raise money for her future, and figure out her conflicting feelings for Dal. Kate really grows as the story moves along and her focus on money changes to her focus on family and friends. It was a quick read and thought it was a cute story.
