Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero! Life was nearly stolen from me. In the blink of an eye, everything changed. I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum. I’m irrevocably altered. Damaged both inside and out. I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live. Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths. Some days, I wish I never woke up. But then life takes an unusual turn. A sweet, sad little girl might be mine. My dream job is gifted to me. I have a doctor who cares. Things are looking up. Until her. One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything. She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone. Pokes. Prods. Infuriates. This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me. Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time. I’ll shake her off eventually. She’s nothing to me. A Hood River zero. Try telling my heart that… This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!
What an amazingly, unputdownable way to end the Hood River Hoodlums series. 🤩Each book in this series was unique and each couple tragically beautiful in their own way. This series is binge-worthy. You can’t help but to fall deeply in love with each character, their journey and their back story. I am super excited about the note to readers in the back of Hood River Zero. 🙌🏻
Terrance and Penny captured my heart🥰 a long time ago. Both of these characters have deep issues they are dealing with, but they are able to recognize they are each other’s perfect counterpart😍. They always just seem to know exactly what the other one needs. GAH! It’s precious and sweet and emotional. Penny was the one who brought Terrance out of the pit of despair he was in. Boy did she ever. Lol
She did it in that blunt, sharp witted tongue lashing way that only the “Mean-Ass Hoodlum” 😈 could bestow upon you. It was the way he needed to hear it too.
Penny struggles with issues of her own and has for years. When Terrance shows interest in wanting her to be his girl how will she respond? She knew she wasn’t normal inside and figured no one would ever really want her if they could see inside her head. Terrance immediately picked up her struggles and always anticipates her needs almost before she even does.
“Terrence is normal. Perfect, even with his uneven head, drooping eye, and plentiful scars.And I’m the definition of imperfect. Broken and flawed and barely functioning.”
He is so drawn to her and is almost surprised when she went from Hollis’ little sister to his everything. But since he can’t get her out of his head then nothing will stop him from making her his. Making sure she knows she is safe, loved and cared for. He’s just this big teddy bear with a heart of gold, that can kick you fanny if you mess with what’s his. So.Freakin.Hot! 🔥
“It’s Penny, for fuck’s sake. Bratty, annoying, mean-ass Penny. God sure did make her fucking pretty to mess with my head.”
This book, like the others, is full of secrets, lies and suspense. All of our favorite Hoodlums must come together to help their own. Several things happen in this book that need some Hoodlum smackdown, and no one brings a beat down like a Hoodlum set out to protect the ones they love. This entire series is a much read.
