When reading about their ( Ollie& Anna) kids' feelings towards their relationship, we as readers might ask ourselves if they ( the kids) can ever really know their own parents outside their role as their parents -- but what Ms.Matthews does is try to revisi the often vast divide between their beliefs about their own moms and the real truth in parenting.Written with a feelin of deep intellectual knowledge in crocheting and a little biting wit, 'HOOKED ON YOU' weaves together stories pertaining to sensitive issues facing separated families whether negative or uplifting and those damaged folks who might help shaped the lives of both leading characters.

old Bethany and her adopted on, Timothy ( 19-20yrs?).

Finally there is Ollie, a former career British Army, owns a yarn stor and teaches a once a week crochet class.

Because of the marriag she is estranged from her two hildren, less so from her eldest son Kieran ( mid 20s?) than 18 yr old daughter Helen, whom Ollie has n't had much contact since Helen was fifteen.I really liked both the leads.

Anna is bored and decides to ake a crochet class that Ollie teaches.

I 've taken various craft classes myself.So if you do n't mind a well penne, slow burnin romance, then that book just for you.

( view spoiler) [ Ollie calls Anna comrade as an endearment.

Hooked on You is the debut novel from British author Jen Matthews.It ’ s a slow urn, slow paced and basically drama free romance story about war veteran Ollie, now owner of a small craft store and English teacher Anna.

Sure, Ylva could have maybe culled it a bit, but it was howeve a very compelling read and a good debut.f/f explicitThemes: London, past time infidelity, war veteran, busted knee, craft shop, crochet lessons, lots of ea and granny squares, workaholics, Liam is a narrow-minded ass hat, the holiday season.

Obviously I ’ m eing a little ageist, but I onestly didn ’ t perceiv the chemistry to be too good in this traditional romance setting.

If you are goin for th very sweet, feel good romance, give th nove a chance.

It as real pleasant surprise and I will absolutely read this write again.

In fact I ’ m eager to read her first nove.

After communicating briefly with Jenn Matthews, new author of Ylva 's and the architect of this essay, " Hooked On You, " I was amazed.

Curiously, the story which aptivated me from the start has inspired me to decide on commenting about it.It IS ironic that nove has the word " Hooked " on its title because ...!!!
