Review: Hate To Love You by Tijan

Rule #1: No hot guys.
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.
No one would know me at college.

Rule #2: No drama.
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.

Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.
And all because of Shay Coleman.

Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .

. . . and he was about to break all my rules.

Eff me with a capital F! I've been -Tijaned- yet again! I fell hard, hard, HARD for this one! Hate to Love you is a story that grabbed me by the lady balls and completely sucked me down the rabbit hole of hate to love at Dulane. I could not get enough of this book, there's just something about the combination of Tijan and NA that gets me fictionally high... like whoa, it's a bit euphoric!

'This guy had power over me that I didn't like, power over me that no other guy had had before. It was because he was Mr. Superstar at this college. That was all.'

I freaking LOVE the shizzit out of the hate/enemies to lovers trope. The thrill of the chase, the banter, the relentless push and pull that is beyond magnetic, the undeniable attraction and denial of said attraction, the angst... the gnawing of my finger nails, the feeling of it all is just one huge SQUEE!!!! When they finally cave and give in and get together, you can almost hear angels sing 'aaaahhhh' LOL Yeah, I adore it just a lil bit * wink * ... and the sexy AF hero is always welcome to tag along and join my book bf collection.

Feisty, strong, and fiercely independent, Kennedy Clarke doesn't mind standing up for herself and her beliefs. She may come off a bit harsh initially, but once you get to know her you can't help but want to dig in and figure out what made her turn her nose up at love and friends.

'I could feel him, all of him. His hand fell to my waist, rounded over my hip and he tugged me closer. I was lined up against him, and I could feel more that just his jeans. "We hate each other. Fine. But not right now." His lips nipped at mine. I felt them smile as he murmured, "I don't hate you right now at all." But he would. I would.

Oblivious to his charm and smirk, Shay Coleman is the top dog on campus. QB of the football team, heartthrob and panty melter of college girls and 30 something year old readers alike... GAH! You seriously need to meet him!!

"...but I'd do it again."

I'm not going to dish many, if any of the details of Hate to Love You as this book went in a couple directions that I did not see coming AT ALL! Major freaking HOLY SH!T stuff happens in this book!! This gem is a book that needs to be experienced first hand. The feels and emotions are real. I laughed, swooned SO hard, and was blindsided by tears of sheer perfect moments. GD the sudden onset of emotions leaking from my eyes. I'm not crying, you're crying!!!! I didn't cry, but then maybe I did... who knows bahaha :D I'll never tell. FML.
