At the young age of seventeen, Kate DelVecchio is determined to make a million dollars before she turns twenty. And only after this has been completed will she let herself think about starting a relationship or a family; she doesnt want to end up like her mother. However, Kate somehow becomes the hottest guy in schools date to the sports banquet, to her surprise and that of the entire school. No one understands how Kate was able to hook such a hottie, but they figure she mustve dont something right so they start coming to her for advice on how to hook their own hotties for a fee of course. And thus Kate finds herself developing a Six-Point Plan for her new business and even closer to her goal. But when it comes to hotties, will Kate follow her own advice?

How to Hook a Hottie was a cute, short, and romantic book. I will admit I didnt really like Kates character towards the beginning of the novel, mostly because she was way too focused on cash, but as the story progressed, she grew on me. I especially liked how she came through in the end. I thought it was funny how Kate didnt realize what she really wanted (not her life plan) even when it was right in front of her, and I was glad that she wised up. My favorite part of this novel, though, was the hottie-hooking tips. Some of them were pretty random, and I have yet to test their effectiveness, but they did add humor to the story. All this made How to Hook a Hottie a very enjoyable story.

If youre looking for a fast and fun read, I recommend How to Hook a Hottie. I look forward to reading Tina Ferraros other novel, Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress, as well as her upcoming one, The ABCs of Kissing Boys.

Kate is a business woman first and foremost. Or at least she will be when she's older. So why not start now, get ahead of the competition, make a name for herself while she's still a senior in high school? All Kate needs is an Ideal Opportunity for her to really take off and take the business world by storm; And the opportunity is basically handed to her when everybody suddenly knows her name due to the High School Hottie himself telling everybody theyre dating. Which theyre so not. But with a little immagination and a lot of determination Kate and her best friend Dal advertise a Six Point Plan on how to Hook Hotties that everybody is dying for. If only they knew what it was themselves!

This was a very entertaining read! Kate's pure determination is admirable but even though she seems like she has it all together her plans often backfire. I love how she isn't swayed by the fact that one of the high schools most popular boys likes her, and she still sees him for the slightly unintelligent slacker that he is. But Kate has flaws too, her biggest one lying in her obsession with getting rich quick. Her desperate desire for money isnt completely unfounded, as she does need it to prove an important point to her parents, but it not the most flattering. But she does eventually realize that the money isnt everything and I really respect her decision at the end to use the money to help another out of a tough situation. This book was very real, and I was surprised at the amount of material there was in such a thin book! Overall another amazing read, very funny, and I think everybody will enjoy it.

At 17, Kate Delvecchio has one goal in life: to become a millionaire before the age of 20. And as far as shes 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 shell 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 doesnt know anything about getting guys, but for $100 a pop, shes more than willing to invent a six-step plan for How to Hook a Hottie. And how could that possibly backfire?

I really loved the book. It was very good. The plot was interesting and the characters were realistic. Kate was very funny and very goal-oriented.Kate learns very important lessons and finds out that she still has her whole life in front of her and shouldn't hurry. You find yourself laughing and cringing at Kate's How to Hook a Hottie plan. I say it's a must read.
