How to Hook a Hottie by Tina Ferraro


Kate DelVecchio is a business woman. When it comes to matters of the heart, she has no time. Look at her own parents. Total dysfunction.

At seventeen, Kate has one goal in her life: to become a millionaire before the age of twenty. ( Okay, twenty-five if hits some bumps in the road.) And as far as she is concerned, college will only slow her down. Unfortunately for Kate, the one thing her parents do agree on is that they totally disagree with here 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.

Surprisingly, it where her heart isn’t that precisely what might solve her dilemma. Since when has love ever helped anyone?

Since now.

When Kate reluctantly agrees to go to the sports banquet with the hottest guy at school, she stumble upon a possible cash cow. The rest of the senior 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 a hundred dollars a pop, she’s more than willing to invent a Six-Pont Plan. And how could that possibly backfire. (from back of book)


How to Hook a Hottie was one word: cute. It wasn’t anything really amazing or anything truly awful, just a cute fun read. The whole story line was interesting in the way that she helped all those people get the person of their dreams. I liked seeing Kate’s no nonsense character grow into a person who actually put others before herself and seeing her relationships with her mom get better as the book went on. Also her relationship with, Dal, her best friend and the guy she starts to get feelings for, was a cute addition to the story, as well as Kate’s sister, Suzannah and Lexie the funny little seventh grader Kate drove to and form ice skating practice for money. Tina’s writing was funny and to the point which left it to never get extremely boring. I finished the 196 pages in less than an hour as a result of this. Also, the ending was predictable, but I can’t see it being any different.

Overall, How to Hook a Hottie is the perfect book for a snowy day. I can’t wait to read Tina’s next book, The ABC’s of Kissing Boys, which I except any day now in my mail box. Also, if you haven’t read her first book, Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress, I suggest you give it a try if you read and liked this book.

Grade: B+
