Review: Pisces Hooks Taurus by Anyta Sunday

I might not be a Taurus, but I was absolutely hooked by Anyta Sunday’s newest M/M Romance: Pisces Hooks Taurus. Opposites attract, puns are tasteful and hilarious and there is so much fluffy romance from both the unapologetic romantic and the realist.

It’s a time for searching, and a time for finding, Pisces: keep casting your line and you will hook what you’re looking for.

Zane has it all planned out: land the perfect Meet Cute, fall in love, and live happily ever after.

Should be simple enough if he put his mind to it. A little creativity and some thinking outside of the box, and voila, he’d be married to the woman of his dreams.

It would be perfect.

And it would be before his visa ran out.

But why are his feelings running wild now that the pressure’s on? Why is his picture-perfect plan turning into a muddled mess of morphed metaphors he can’t make sense of anymore?

Just as well he’s met an English professor to help. And even though their first meet is anything but cute, this down-to-earth teacher may just be the realist Zane needs to ground him and give him a shot at love after all.

Don’t cast your line too wide, Pisces. Your perfect catch may already have bitten.

Goodreads

I received an arc of Pisces Hooks Taurus from A Novel Take PR in exchange for an honest review.

This isn’t my first Anyta Sunday book and it reminds me so much of that night I discovered Rock and could not stop reading the slow burn romance that went from enemies to friends to lovers. It did tackle the more taboo topic of step-siblings though. What I also recall is that there was a masquerade ball!

Enough about Rock. Today’s review is about Sunday’s newest release in her Signs of Love series, Pisces Hooks Taurus. This book absolutely stands on its own. I haven’t read any of the previous books in the series, but had no trouble falling into the perfect narration of Zane and Beckett’s story.

Delightful, witty writing

Let’s start on the writing, which hooked me so much (don’t count how many times I’m going to use the word hooked). I just adored the straightforward narration in Zane and Beckett’s point of views. Both men are strangers to one another but driven by kindness (on Beckett’s half) and by need (on Zane’s half) the two are put into one another’s lives. The writing allowed me to immediately laugh out loud about Zane’s confusions and Beckett’s fondness of Zane. No matter how hard he tried not to be fond of him…anyway.

Opposites attract and sizzle… slowly

The slow burn definitely delivered. I got to read Zane get adorably close to Beckett and feel all kinds of friendly ways as they both cared deeply for one another. Zane was protective of Beckett even though “Becky” (this nickname is hilariously used…) was much older than him and more life-weary. Beckett is a divorced professor who lives alone and kind of leads a quiet life. Zane is an extrovert who loves his family and wants to be closer, which is the reason he needs to fall in love and get married. Plus, he wants to. I loved the desperation in Zane’s heart but I also loved how the plot didn’t force the two into something just out of convenience.

You’ll find a lot of family, friendships and fluffy situation that’ll make you go “aw” but the book also delivers on steaminess. It explored demisexuality even without using the term. I’m demisexual and I just… knew. I could detect the representation through Zane’s thoughts about Beckett.

Pisces Hooks Taurus is a feel good slow romance between two strangers who meet by chance and grow to be very important to one another. It was perfection. I cannot wait to read more of Sunday’s Signs of Love books. You can pick up a copy for yourself on Amazon!
