Hitched – Christine Manzari


For aspiring journalist Harlow Ransom, life is just a well-oiled machine, and if she plans well, all things will go accordingly. And that is exactly why Harlow lives her life by perfectly polished to-do lists that she refuses to stray from—even when she’s celebrating her 21st birthday in Sin City.

1. Visit the Boom Boom Blues Lounge
2. See the water show at the Bellagio

Things can’t possibly go askew if she crosses things off her list one by one. But after a night of celebrating leads to waking up in bed with a sexy stranger and a ring on her finger, Harlow realizes that in no point in time did she ever have “Get Married” on her trusty to-do list. Yet that’s exactly what she did.

Professional snowboarder Trace Stone loves a good challenge—he’s all about the win. And this time, he’s going to find a way to win over the feisty, meticulous Harlow. The wedding may have been spontaneous and impulsive, but when he said “forever,” he meant it. Now, the only thing he wants on Harlow’s to-do list is him—from this day forward.


My Rating: 5 Stars

I can’t even begin to tell you how embarrassing it is to totally fangirl over someone you interact with on social media…but I’m totally about to do it. If you’re new to my blog, you’ll quickly learn that I have very little to no shame. So…without further ado, I will now proceed to fangirl. Christine (aka Xenatine) please don’t file a restraining order…

THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING! My second 5 star read in a 24 hour period. Hitched was absolutely impossible to put down. Trace was everything I want in a man – sexy, driven, witty, a little too cocky for his own good, and miraculous in bed. The total package ladies. Unfortunately for us, he’s taken (and fictional, but we can glaze over that).

Harlow was an interesting character. She had commitment issues, sure, but not for the cliched typical reasons. She didn’t have an abusive father or exes who cheated, she was ambitious and scared to let anyone in because of it. As someone who is immensely career driven, she was impossibly easy to connect with.

To make this book even more fun and wonderful, little news articles began each chapter, either detailing Harlow’s thoughts or Trace’s career. It was a unique way to give the reader information and a lot of the articles had me chuckling.

My Takeaway: I’d stay longer and gush more about this book, but I just bought Hated and am DYING to jump right in. Just trust me – Hitched is sexy, fun, deep and absolutely a must read. I can’t wait for more of Christine’s books!
