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.

Very mixed bag.

Firstly narration was 100% excellent. My hats off to you sir for being able to read lines like that with conviction. I would say i'm someone who has no limits when it comes to sexual content but some of this just had an ick factor for me. I think the main character was just a bit too evil and really had no redemption arc. The things that were offputting were a real shame because the peter pan references woven through the storyline were epic.

AMAZING!!!

This is one of the best books ever!! My heart is just mush!! So cute and sooo sexy! This is a book where both protagonists fall hopelessly in love with each other! Amazing! And the narration!!! Fantastic! Both Felicity Munroe and Rupert Hawthorne were amazing and just made the story so amazing that it came to life. And it totally helped that I could cry while still continuing with the story rather than having to stop every second because I couldn't see the words on the page 🤣. And the epilogue ... so adorable! This is a dark romance with some possibly triggering scenes, but I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a romance where the villain gets the girl! I hope you love this book just as much as I do! Enjoy!!

A good listen

I enjoyed this, it kept me guessing right to the very end, had a bit of a twist which kept things interesting.
Scarred from this series is still my favourite though.

Wow

This was completely unexpected. You reminded me of the Peter Pan story I’d forgotten on the go. This retelling took me by surprise, pleasant way and loved every minute of it. I highly recommend this book.

Great listen - captivating the whole way through!

I enjoyed the performance of this! The time flew by, it was engaging and captivated me from start to finish. It was great how the idea of the “villain” could be interpreted in several ways and how James never pretended to be anything other than who he was, earning the love of Wendy anyway. Keen for the next book in the series!

A great retelling!

Really liked her version of the story. My only beef was the female actor was not great with her English accent. She went from posh accent for main character in one chapter, to common accent for main character in another. The male actor was great.

Second time listening

This was my second time listening. Seen all over tik tok so thought I would give it ako, only to discover I had already listened to it. Although I enjoyed the story I didn’t remember it at all. After listening again I wouldn’t say the same good sorry but not memorable
