From Shelfari, "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?"
How to Hook a Hottie is a terrific book! I loved that the story had a girl with a spunky attitude who was not afraid to go after what she wanted, but wasn't willing to step on somebody else to do it. Kate DelVecchio is a character worth rooting for and that's exactly what I did throughout the whole book. I wanted Kate to get everything that she wanted, even if she didn't always know what that was. I also liked that Kate's life wasn't picture perfect and the relationship with her mother was tepid, which was easy to relate to. I know of a lot of people who had the same wish as Kate, to not turn out to be like her mother.
I have read two books by Tina Ferraro and really enjoy her fluid writing style. She has an effortlessness to her writing that really brings the reader into her world. The only thing left to say about this wonderful book is that you should READ IT!
