    1. 2 I loved Shawn Stars Spoilers below and some rantingLet me just start out saying that this book is nothing and I do mean nothing like I thought it would be The plot sounded so good I knew going into this book that the heroine was a hooker and the hero was autistic I was prepared for the heroine to have been with many men and for her pass to maybe follow her and cause problems in her and Shawn s relationship I was okay with that I wanted so much to like this book I really did The writing style i [...]


    2. 4.5 STARS This is such a sweet book Shawn is autistic and doesn t know how to socialize normally On his dates, he has no filter If the girl s sister is prettier, he will let her know He is also a walking And if he isn t talking about random facts, he ll have random questions in his pocket to keep the conversation going.Shawn You look different from your profile picture Date That s actually my sister I get a lot interest when I use her pic Shawn Well, she is a lot prettier than you My favorite t [...]


    3. I m giving this book the highest rating because I wrote it and, well, I think it s pretty darn good It s funny, romantic and But I d love to know what you think of it


    4. What a fantastic story The writing style has the perfect pace, with the relationship between the two main characters building in a realistic measure I was concerned when I first saw this book that the author would use autism as a plot device to add angst and conflict in the applicable chapters, but what Allen Wolf has done is create a character in Shawn who has very realistic autism but is not defined by it, he is instead defined by his benevolence and kind hearted nature Shawn s character has b [...]


    5. In this novel adapted from an award winning screenplay, a romantic twenty something fails to spot that his new girlfriend is a prostitute because he is autistic The situation has ample comedic potential, but it isn t just played for laughs This warm, witty story does not shy away from serious themes like exploitation, redemption, and true love It s easy to see this being adapted into an enjoyable movie for fans of The Rosie Project See my full review at Foreword.


    6. I found this book on and liked the synopsis Eventually, the book was offered in a giveaway and I was fortunately chosen as a winner Yay, me The book mail arrived quickly and I opened it up immediately, smiling like a happy kid when I noticed the book had been signed by Wolf, with a lovely inscription Then I read the first couple of paragraphs and too quickly set it aside Sometimes moods alter my reading experience because when I picked this same book up a week later I Couldn t Put It Down Shawn, [...]


    7. I absolutely loved this story The two main characters are polar opposites but come together so well and believably in this Shawn s autism was necessary to the story but did not define his character, and the way that it is described in the story helped me to understand about the condition and how it affects individuals Indeed the whole story tackles very serious issues in autism and human trafficking, but does it in such a way as to not appear preachy or contrived In all this was a very heart wa [...]


    8. Reviewed on behalf of Readers FavoriteHooked by Allen Wolf is a contemporary novel about an autistic man struggling with finding love and happiness Shawn desperately wants to find someone to spend the rest of his life with, but due to his autism, finds it difficult to even get past the first date His family is encouraging and protective of Shawn s heart after he lost his first girlfriend in college Then, at a party for his work, a dating agency, Shawn meets Violet He mistakes her for an ordinary [...]


    9. 4 stars A sweet story of an unlikely pairing.What An autistic man and a seasoned prostitute coming together You almost snort at the idea of that happening in any meaningful way Yet the author manages to start with the implausible and weave a story that evolves into something natural, organic, and somehow right You go from thinking, How would that EVER work to eventually seeing how it would be good for both of them.A few things I loved about Shawn s character and his autism is how he perceives hi [...]


    10. Not the typical Boy meets the Girl story.Shawn and Olivia or Violet find each other at a party, Shawn has Autism and he doesn t understand the subtle nuances of the start of what he thinks is a loving relationship What happens when he discovers the truth about what she really is It was a quick read but, it was definitely an eye opener about several different things shown in this book specially Autism and Prostitution I liked it I think you ll like it too if you read it with an open mind.


    11. This read about an unlikely pair was a genuine delight to read The development between main characters Shawn and Violet wasn t just realistic, it was also uniquely interesting, and loaded with humor Allen Wolf has a serious talent for writing about people on the autism spectrum and creating heartfelt story lines This is one of those rare books that I will read time and time again, and recommend to all of my friends I definitely look forward to reading by Wolf in the future


    12. Because of Shawn s autism, he misses social cues most people would pick up on He s highly functioning and has a job creating algorithms at a dating service Living at home with his mother, he realizes she won t always be there for him and he dreams of finding the right girl with whom he might someday settle down He s gone on countless dates, putting his company s service to the test Only his tendencies to blurt out awkward comments doesn t bode well for any chances beyond the first date One night [...]


    13. A really interesting storyI truly enjoyed reading this story with a rather unusual story line So good to see characters with different needs portrayed so well This is a well written and insightful read.


    14. Shawn was walking beside Cheryl but he found it hard to look in her eyes or in anyone s eyes for that matter When he did he felt like he was walking into the sun when he did it as he knew people grew uneasy around him when he kept looking away Shawn often spoke without thinking or editing what he said Shawn works at an online dating service Then Shawn was on a date with Lindsay and it seemed to be going good Lindsay told Shawn he was like a walking Lindsay took Shawn s hand and shook it off and [...]


    15. I was gifted an ARC by Author Groupies in exchange for an honest review.Well I was already Hooked with the dedication pardon the pun Shawn and his brother Colin live with their grandparents, to be honest they actually reared them , their parents shouldn t have had children Grandpa has since passed on so it s just Gran and the boys nowYou see Shawn is different, he s autistic He may lack social skills but so do many other normal people but he has a beautiful and honest soul He has no filter but I [...]


    16. Original review at 125pages.wordpress I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.3.75 StarsAll Shawn wants to do is get married He works IT at an exclusive online dating site, but can never get past date one He wonders if his high functioning autism may be to blame, but it s not like he can change When he meets Violet at a Pimps and Ho s party he is instantly smitten, but does not understand that she is an actual prostitute For Violet, meeting Shawn is like waking up from a [...]


    17. This got me hooked Such an interesting read Allen Wolf brings us a refreshing tale with two very peculiar characters And we all know I m all about characters And these were just excellent It was so amazing to see Shawn and Violet s relationship develop as well as their interactions with the different worlds they lived in and eventually mashed together.I had never read a book about an autist before and I found it to be immensely interesting By reading Hooked I not only learned a bit about what t [...]


    18. Hooked Allen Wolf The premise of this book did not disappoint Shawn, a high functioning autistic, has had his heart set on finding the perfect girl and having a dream wedding for years, but struggles to make it through even one date He begins unknowingly dating a prostitute, who is touched by the way he treats her after dozens of harsh clients Perhaps it was a little apparent that this had been a screenplay adapted into a novel, but I enjoyed the feel that this created We didn t get a lot of ins [...]


    19. Hooked is a refreshing novel, lighthearted with the touch of humor and sweet with its romantic center plot Reading it is my attempt at diverting from my usual genre which is mystery and suspense, and it turned out to be than just a dversion Main character Shawn is a high functioning autistic who is desperate to find a partner in life His easy demeanor, with his naive but achingly sweet view on life and people, is very refreshing a break from all the psychopaths, sadistic lovers and violent char [...]


    20. 4 4.5 starsI received this book through netgalley.This was a charming book The main protagonist, Shawn, is a 24 year old IT programmer, who s got high functioning Autism He dreams of getting married and wants somebody to look after him when his grandma passes away He tries online dating, but his social awkwardness, unfiltered observations don t do well with the ladies I won t describe the book any further, as you can read the blurb What I will say is that it s a very easy read, but very enjoyabl [...]


    21. Though Shawn has gone on countless dates, he finds the whole process difficult Diagnosed with Autism at the age of two, Shawn lives life looking through a lens only a few of us can imagine He is high functioning so often his particular habits and actions are not readily apparent, unless he mentions it to someone Despite his brother s advice, Shawn tends to reveal his Autism soon after meeting a potential love interest, for honesty s sake and to hopefully make things a bit easier It doesn t More [...]


    22. In just 238 short pages, Allen Wolf creates two characters in Hooked who are both struggling with two very different situations that offer them difficulty than consolation Shawn is a 24 year old dating website coder with autism, desperate to find a woman to love and be loved by for the rest of his life Violet is a vivid young woman harangued into human trafficking a few years before When these two very different characters meet, they begin to learn that they are actually similar than they are [...]


    23. Hooked was to me completely different than anything I ve read The interestingly complicated love story of an autistic boy trying to find a bride, for all the wrong reasons He wants someone to take care of him, not someone to share his life with in a romantic way He is even obsessed with weddings and keeps samples with him at all times Violet comes along and changes Shawn s ways Although Shawn believes he is accompanying her to auditions because Violet mentioned she was an actress, Shawn fails to [...]


    24. I have to admit that this story was highly entertaining and engaging Due to it being reasonably fast paced, it is very easy to read, even if it a little obvious that the novel was adapted from a screenplay The concept allows the story to not only be funny and quirky, but also to explore serious deeper topics I can promise you that, regardless of how predictable some parts might be, it will still melt your heart The writing style is pretty short and sweet It was confusing at first to be hearing [...]


    25. Hooked has a fun plot, but unfortunately it is a bit shallow for me to consider a novel Now don t get me wrong it is a good story, only the characters are under developed, the story zips through as if it s a movie instead of a novel 10% of book sales go to help human trafficking victims which is an amazing cause, but the book it self is of an essay in my opinion rather then a novel I would have loved to know about the characters, depth on their pasts and dreams of future, depth on their inte [...]


    26. This was such a heartfelt story Shawn s autism makes for a character that is genuine, innocent, sincere, and absolutely charming in a quirky well intentioned way His bluntness of emotion and thoughts make him endearing, and when paired with the cynical prostitute Violet, make for some heartwarming scenes Violet s never experienced the genuine kindness that Shawn shows her, so seeing her defenses lower and her love of life be reignited was wonderful Each scene they are in together sparkles with g [...]


    27. This book totally caught me by surprise a great way Shawn is a young man with high functioning autism who is looking for the love of his life While most women run at the first realization of his personality quirks When he meets Violet at a party, he is instantly smitten by her and starts to court her Little does he know that she is a prostitute Violet is intrigued by Shawn s respectful attitude towards her as she hasn t experience that kind of care in a long time His unconditional love for her h [...]


    28. They say that there s a match out there for everyone but not since Harold and Maude have I seen a couple so different and quirky than Shawn and Violet And yet, so right Whereas with every other date Shawn s mild autism was a deal breaker, with Violet it becomes both their saving graces Sometimes even the most unlovable person just needs someone to stick with them, believe in them and love them, no matter what When Shawn sets his sights on Violet, he does just that This is a sweet story that prov [...]


    29. Hooked is such an unique and entertaining read I loved that it s a fun romance, but had a lot of levels of seriousness to it too I think it s great for an author to shed light on autism by having the main character, Shawn, be autisticI read a lot, and this is something I haven t seen before Shawn tries not to let this get in his way and while he s great at his career, he s not so great with the ladies Everything changes when Violet comes into his life, and with this unexpected pairing, they help [...]


    30. what a wonderful sweet little read this is a great little story that warms your heart as it reminds us that Everyone deserves a chance in love and that you never know what life will throw at you I really enjoyed this read thanks so much Allen Wolf and free book giveaway I appreciate winning this book and having the opportunity to read and review this wonderful book
