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
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.
It's an offer I
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.

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.
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 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.
