    get your hooks into sth/sb

    Hello.

    Definition from Cambridge Dictionary Online: Free English Dictionary and Thesaurus
    get your hooks into sth/sb
    to get control or influence over something or someone
    We'll all be seeing a lot less of Robert if Joanna gets her hooks into him.

    - ... if Joanna gets her hooks in him.
    - ... if Joanna gets her hooks on him.
    - ... if Joanna has her hooks into him.
    - ... if Joanna has her hooks in him.
    - ... if Joanna has her hooks on him.
    Do these sound good?

    Thank you.
