How to Hook a Hottie by Tina Ferraro

At 17, Kate Delvecchio has one goal in life: to become a millionaire before the age of 20. And as far as she’s concerned, college will only slow her down. Unfortunately for Kate, the one thing her parents do agree on is that they totally disagree with her strategy. And so the deal is born. If Kate can raise five thousand big ones by graduation day, her parents will hand over the balance of her college account to invest as she pleases. No college, no degree, and no way she’ll ever be able to pull it off. But 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?

I liked this book, but i didn't love it. It had a good main character and a decent plot but I just didn't really get into it.

I really liked Kate as a main character. She was sassy and fun but seemed really driven, and I never found myself getting annoyed with her, as I sometimes do with other characters. However I sometimes found her drive two-dimensional. I wish we could have gotten more of a history behind her mother leaving and her friendship with Dal, that would have really added a lot to the story for me.

I also felt like the business was just far - fetched. It seemed like one minute she was helping a friend and the next everyone wanted help. I wish there would have been a more steady lead up to Kate getting customers.

An easy read, with a decent romance and some good lessons about family and self.

Plot: 3/5
