I received a copy of Hooked by Allen Wolf from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Desperate to find a soulmate in New York City, Shawn goes on one awkward date after another until he encounters the alluring Violet. He starts dating her, but his autism prevents him from understanding she's actually a prostitute. Drawn in by his kindness, Violet appreciates Shawn's quirky nature but conceals what she does after dark.

This comedic tale of two misfits takes a dramatic turn when they are forced to make life altering choices. Their only hope for a future is to discover the courage that comes from loving someone deeply.

This wasn't what I was expecting when I picked the book.  Shawn as autism and it has been hindering is dating life.  He lives with this Grandmother and knows she won't be around to help take care of him for ever.  He's made it is goal to find a wife.  After going on several dates that don't go anywhere he sneaks into an after work party and meets Violet.  What Shawn doesn't understand is she is a prostitute.  Shawn and Violet bond over coffee.  Will they have a future together?
