Publisher Description

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 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 fantasy) featuring mature themes and content that may not be suitable for all audiences. Reader discretion is advised.*

Thumbs Up“What I liked was the references to the original Peter Pan story and I was interested in James’s story and seeing what comes of it. If it wasn’t for that I probably would’ve DNF’d this. Reading this it just felt too much like those old Wattpad fan fiction stories I read as a tween and I’ve also learned I’m not a dark romance kind of person so I’m not sure if I will be reading any of the other books in the Never After series which is a shame because I did like the book covers! I also very much did not like Wendy. Probably one of the most bland FMC I’ve read about in a while. The twist at the end also kind of weirded me out.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book was great. It honestly saddens me that this book gets less attention than Twisted Love. Hook (James Barrie) gives me Aaron Warner meets Zade Meadows meets Alex Volkov vibes which gives his character that alluring lethal beauty. The connections to the movie is subtle details (Crocodile Tick, Tinkerbell’s jealousy, character behavior) made the book all the more engaging. There were some areas of the book that were underdeveloped but the plot twist and the energy of the book overall made up for those areas that I felt weren’t don’t justice. The story was amazing and I finished this book with my friend in 2 days😍”
