After finishing Pen's Devil's Night Series I wanted to read another one that she had written so I went to this book. Bully, I had some mixed feelings about it. When we were introduced to the characters Jared and Tate I felt that their story was much deeper than we were told in the beginning. I was questioning was pulling Jared to bully his childhood friend out of the blue. He made me angry at times and made me wonder why he would do these extreme things. I was a little surprised she forgive him shortly but after hearing about his trauma that changed him I would have too. Their chemistry was so easy to fall into. For it being Pen's 1st book that she published I was extremely impressed. All in all, actually loved it!! ( )

I can't add much to Stacie-C's review below. This genre of romance novel - Hate to Want You: Forbidden Hearts by Alisha Rai is in this category – is very clever at keeping you reading, hoping that the tension will ease and there will be some growth on the part of the characters or in their relationship, and some joy and fun! It's hard going in this novel. ( )

Okay. A lot of people loved this book but I think I'm a little tired of the boy and girl are friends, something happens, they hate each other, they kiss, they fall in love and have raunchy sex trend. Also, I understand that there is spell check and what have you but it's the Beatles not the Beetles, and it's your not you're. I found a couple more typos in there as well. I can't help it! Anyway, this book was alright but I think it spent too much time getting to the HEA and not enough time at the HEA. ( )

'Jared indulged in my misery like it was candy. He had fed me to the wolves time and again,reveling in the unhappiness he caused. Jared, my friend, was completely gone, leaving a cold monster in his place.'

Plot

Tatum Brandt and Jared Trent were once the best of friends, until the summer that Jared spent with his father. When he returned, he wasn't the same person anymore, and he made it his mission to make Tatum miserable.

By pulling pranks and spreading nasty rumours, Jared has made Tatum's like a misery. After Tatum spends a year in France, she comes back a new person; determined to fight back and stop him from ruining her senior year. She won't let him bully her anymore.


My Thoughts

I bought this book a while ago after seeing a lot of my Goodreads friends enjoying it and writing good reviews for it. It was one of those books that I bought and then forgot I had it until I scrolled through my Kindle the other night looking for something new to read.

I'm so glad I did buy this because I was drawn into it from the very start. As soon as the story started and Tatum started to explain that she and Jared were once best friends and now he hates her, I really wanted to uncover the mystery of what made him turn against her.

There was definitely a love/hate thing going on with Jared, but that's probably how the Author intended the readers to see him. He's made Tatum's life a misery for years, both in school and outside school and also left her wondering what she could have done to deserve it.

I found myself getting desperate to get back to this book and find out just what's going on in Jared's head. I even rushed showers so I could get back to it. I loved finding out why Jared acted how he did, but the reasons that he gives really doesn't justify his actions.

As in most books, the main character has a best friend. Tatum's best friend is called K.C. I won't say anything else, to avoid spoilers, but some of her actions really made me wonder how good a friend she actually was.

I'm so glad I read this book, as it had a really interesting twist on the Bad-Boy Romance genre that I hadn't seen before. The story was fast-paced, kept me coming back for more and kept me in suspense.

I love enemies to “friends” to lovers. It’s my trope of choice. That being said, I found it hard to find redeeming qualities in Jared enough to condone the relationship or how quickly it progressed. I don’t really love the I’m-abused-so-I-must-become-an-abuser-to-cope narrative. I felt like all the friends were very shitty friends and that our heroine deserved better. The adults in this story are all completely useless individuals and should not be responsible for human life (don’t leave your child home alone for months at a time). My last grump was that a lot of it felt like it might be a wattpad story? I love a good fanfic but it seemed like an editor would have helped a lot.

Grumbles out of the way: I loved the pacing of the story. I finished it in one night so it’s addictive enough to not close out of. I liked the main character in that she is a little rough around the edges and has a vindictive streak. The spicy scenes were good and spicy. I was mildly interested in cars which I never am. I love the concept of devoted and looking out for the enemy friend lover even when you’re not friendly but the violence was extreme for my taste.

I think if we spent a little more time with the in between forgiveness period and some extra time getting to know your enemy friend lover I’d have bumped the rating up a star. A major redeeming factor that I need to sit on is that the author very clearly shows through the characters that 1) these kids have terrible coping skills 2) they overreact in very unhealthy ways.

Overall, I’d have read it again and I do feel satisfied at the end of the story. ( )
