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.

You ever read a book that has you swooning and squealing because it’s just so freaking cute? Yeah, that is 100% Pisces Hooks Taurus.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Anyta Sunday is the Queen of Slow-Burn Romance. I’ve capitalised that, so you know it’s true.
If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you probably know how much I adore Sunday’s Signs of Love series, specifically the first novel, Leo Loves Aries. Pisces Hooks Taurus is now on the same level as Leo Loves Aries through its adorableness, sweetness and the budding romance, imbued with tension and double entendres.
I simply adored the characters. Zane, oh Zane. What a sweetheart this guy is. He is a hopeless romantic. He completely believes in love at first sight and lives for the day he gets to meet the person he’ll spend the rest of his life with. He can be shy, especially when around people he believes are smarter than he is, but he’s also loud and brash and wears his heart right out on his sleeve.
When it comes to Beckett, I just wanted to give the man a big ’ol hug. He has been hurt before and no longer believes in love after his divorce, and certainly not in love at first sight. When Zane crashes into his life, Beckett doesn’t know what to think. He likes the man but can’t relate to Zane’s ideas about romance and love. Until, that is, he starts to fall for Zane, and even though the book is only in Zane’s perspective, you can feel Beckett’s growing attraction. It’s heady and it’s sweet … but Zane is clueless and believes that his feelings for Beckett are the result of a strong Bromance. Yeah, he and Theo from Leo Loves Aries should be friends.
Basically, this book is a warm bundle of feels that will have you squishing your face into your Kindle and giving a little squeal (lmao, what? I’m not speaking from experience, I swear. Shut up). Although you don’t need to read the other books in the series as all of them are standalones, I highly recommend you do so. Not only are all the books AMAZING, but there are plenty of little Easter eggs (and cameos from my two favourite characters) in each of the books that you’ll only be aware of if you’ve read them.
READ THIS BOOK! READ THE SERIES! FALL IN LOVE WITH ME AND WE’LL SCREAM ABOUT THESE BOOKS TOGETHER!
“Luke jumped to the boyfriend conclusion on his own. I would have corrected him, but he made such a fuss about not touching you in front of him. Said it would be weird.” Zane shrugged. “He wound me up the wrong way. I don’t want him telling me how I can be or not be around you. That’s our business, don’t you think?”
Beckett leaned against the doorjamb. “How we are together—whether we touch, kiss, sleep naked, have sex or not—that is most definitely our business.”
Zane swallowed, gaze lingering on Beckett’s cool pose. “That’s—” He cleared his throat. “That’s what I thought.”
Beckett pushed off the doorframe with the flat of his foot and Zane’s chest doubled in size.
Zane scored a hand through his hair. “Sometimes, I feel like . . . .”
“Like?” Beckett didn’t move away nor move forward. He stayed still, patient as always.
“I need a bath.”
Zane turned and fled into the house.
Flicking on the living room light was a mistake. Leah’s scarf, leggings, and lacy underwear were strewn over the furniture as though she’d gotten lucky and hadn’t bothered to clean up afterward.
Beckett stepped in behind him and cursed.
Zane had barely made it to the armchair when the sound of bedsprings groaning from the attic assaulted his ears. Jesus that was loud.
Like really freaking loud.
Zane hadn’t been the biggest fan of those squealing of bedsprings, but through the hollow ceiling it was worse. Echoed.
Had Beckett heard him twisting and turning in bed—had Beckett heard him jerking off?
He glanced to Beckett, who caught Zane’s panicked look, interpreted it, and calmly crossed the room toward him. Zane sidled behind the armchair as if it could protect him from the sheer mortification sweeping through him.
“Zane,” Beckett said in a low, quiet voice.
Zane scrubbed his heated face and peeked at Beckett through his fingers. “The other night, when I was, er, getting into that long-winded book—”
Beckett’s step faltered. “Oh, dear Lord—”
“You heard all that?”
Beckett slammed his eyes shut like, clearly not wanting to have this conversation.
Well, same here.
Slowly, Beckett reopened his eyes. “Yes, I heard you.”
Zane groaned and ducked behind the armchair. He wasn’t quite sure why he couldn’t laugh this one off. He would have with anyone else. Hell, he would have with Beckett a few days ago.
The armchair shifted and a chuckle floated from above him. Beckett teased the ends of Zane’s hair and Zane reluctantly looked up. Beckett was peeking at him over the back of the chair with an amused expression. “Why have you gone shy?”
“I don’t know.”
Beckett’s gaze flitted to his mouth and back to his eyes. “You know it’s okay to do it, right?”
“Yeah. It’s just . . . .” Something.
“Does it help to know I did it, too?”
“While . . . hearing me?”
“Will it be a problem if I say yes?”
Zane’s breath caught, and his cock grew heavy. “I reallyneed a bath.”
“Not a cold shower?”
“I think you should take your sister’s underwear off the lampshade and busy yourself in bed.” At a small chuckle, Zane added, “With a book.”
