Release Blitz & Review - Hate Me Take Me - Clare James

Title: Hate Me, Take Me
A Hate-to-Love Duet Bundle
Author: Clare James
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 21, 2017



They say there’s a
thin line between love and hate, and in the case of these couples, we’re
talking razor thin!

In this hate-to-love
duet by Clare James, two couples cross that dangerous line…more than

Hate Me

Falling for your
sister’s nemesis? Only a low-life dog would do something like that, right? And
that ain’t me, not anymore. I’m trying to be a stand-up guy—finally making
smart decisions, helping my little sister, and getting my shit
together. For once, things are finally going my way.

Until Jenna shows
up. As soon as I meet her, I know she’s the enemy. I’ve heard enough to
understand that she’s off limits. Banned. Forbidden. But when she moves in next
door, it’s impossible to stay away, and I soon discover she’s not as bad as
everyone says. Of course, she’s difficult, selfish, and a royal pain in the
ass, but she’s also gorgeous, smart, kind, and…well, let’s just say I am that
low-life dog. Traitor. Turncoat. And the world’s shittiest brother. Woof.

Take Me

It's an offer can't refuse...

He was my best friend. He is my current enemy. Yet he wants me and I want him.
And since we’re both stuck in our hometown unattached, we agree to a truce.

Two hours, once a week, no strings attached. But what sounds like the
perfect arrangement, turns into so much more…yet not nearly enough. 

This hate-to-love duet includes: Never Be Tamed, Two-Hour Truce, and exclusive
bonus content. 


Hate me Take me is a book with two separate stories in it. I enjoyed both stories even though they were shorter. These are quick reads with enough story to make you feel like you read an entire book instead of just a short story. What I love most about it, is they are from hate to love stories. Hate to love stories always have such passion and these are no exception. 

Hate Me:
The plot of this story is interesting. I don’t think I have quite read a story that began this way. I think we all have family members who expect you to dislike someone just because they do. This is relatable to me. I think it is entertaining that Michael then meets Jenna and can’t help but be attracted to her. This leads to some interesting story.

Take Me:
Take me has an interesting plot as well. Two former best friends meet once a week for some fun? Sign me up to read that train wreck waiting to happen. The blurb itself drew me in, but the story was even better. I love hate to love books, but I also love second chance books. I feel this book has both. These two were best friends in the past and were torn apart and wanted to hate each other.  What I think I love most is that they don’t deny their attraction, but instead embrace it. This was an amazing story as well.

Overall, I really loved these two stories. I wish I could say more, but with them being so short, I don’t want to give away any important parts of the book. Just know that I read them and loved them and I think you will too. Especially if you are looking for a couple of quick reads without having to get invested in a whole series. I would recommend this to others.

“Jenna,” he said with more force this time. “Look at me.”
I flashed my gaze up to him and then back down, quickly.
It wasn’t enough for him. He placed a finger under my chin
and tipped my face up to his so I had no choice this time. His eyes were soft,
but intense. Not quite black as they were before, but they were dilated, and
his lids were slightly hooded. It made me wonder what my eyes looked like to
him in the moment. Were they giving me away? Could he see that he had broken
through the wall that not many people had? Did he know how desperately I wanted
him to stay? Could he tell I needed his touch?
Did he know he was dealing with a completely sex-starved,
socially awkward, recluse?
The corner of his mouth quirked up just then, and I thought
yes, maybe he did know.
“Thank you for dinner,” he said as my eyes tore away from
his and focused on his mouth. He licked his bottom lip, and the flickers
flashed in my stomach again. Sparks working toward a flame.
I nodded, unable to find my words when he was invading my
His lips moved closer to my face, and I swallowed, bracing
My throat went try. My hands shook. And that flame took hold
inside me. I didn’t want to wait for him. I wanted to kill the daylight between
our bodies while my hands tangled in his hair. I wanted to know what he tasted
like. There was so much I wanted, but in the end, I couldn’t do any of those
And instead of his lips descending on mine, they veered
left, and landed on the shell of my ear.
“I know you thought I was afraid to be alone with you, but
just so you know,” he said with a ragged breath that I felt from the top of my
scalp all the way down to my toes, “I’m not afraid of anything.”
He pressed his lips on my cheek, and then he was gone.
