Hate to Love You

By  Tijan


A new standalone from NYT bestselling author Tijan.

Rule #1: No hot guys.
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of was, 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.


Tijan has again delivered a sensational stand alone that has drama, friendship, and love.  This has some dark elements of college life and it provided such depth to this story, it was surprising.

College life is fast paced in this story and I could not put this book down.  Characteristic of Kennedy is that she is defiant and independent and I liked that she was diligent in her studies.  Kennedy had a plan but like everything, it can explode and Shay did that.

Two of my favorite supporting characters were Casey and then also Linde, he was a standout.  I am saying right here that I could read a whole book on Linde.  The way Linde conversed with Kennedy made me happy but also sad as I knew he had a soft spot for her.

The drama around the girls in her sorority house was honest and provided great humor but also friendship tests.  The loneliness that Kennedy experienced was raw at times and her relationship with her brothers was beautiful.

Kennedy had magical moments with Shay and Hate to Love concluded perfectly with happiness and hope.
