Hate To Love You is LIVE!
Opposites in every way, Chase and Arianna have been bitter rivals since childhood. Constantly in competition, they fight incessantly, making it nearly impossible for them to be in the same room with each other. Until they slept together.
Sex changes everything.
In one emotional evening, they go from enemies to lovers. Hate quickly evolves into passionate lust, but old habits die hard. The love growing between them can’t erase a lifetime of animosity. The two quickly fall back into old routines of spite and vengeance, and their relationship crumbles under the weight of their deep-seated distrust.
Chase and Arianna spend the next two years on opposite sides of the globe, avoiding each other at all costs. Despite the lies they tell themselves, neither one is ready to let go. Even though they are both engaged to other people, they can’t find it in their hearts to forgive each other or to move forward.
A family emergency calls Arianna home, where they have no choice but to face each other again. Will they finally admit the truth, or will they remain forever trapped between love and hate?
NO! NO! NO! I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THE BOOK JUST ENDED LIKE THAT!?
WARNING: THIS BOOK HAS A MAJOR CLIFFHANGER
This was my first Isabelle Richards book and whilst I’m impressed by the story, many of the themes and it’s premise, the cliffhanger has left me reeling. Hate To Love You is a love story that describes the similarities between hate and love perfectly. Readers will become invested, whilst eagerly waiting to see how it all unfolds.
Richards brings us Chase and Ari. With their lives heavily influenced by sport, they both become professional athletes. It is obvious to anyone that competitiveness runs through their veins. Using competition to fuel their lifestyle an aggression and rivalry embedded so deep becomes the essence of this unexpected relationship.
As Chase and Ari are constantly battling with their antagonistic nature towards one another, it seems their passion and love thrives on it. As their relationship becomes destructive and painful, they break up, leaving life altering scars in the process.
After a two-year no speak no see attitude, Chase and Ari are thrown back into one another’s lives with no option but to be civil. As old feelings resurface we witness a serious battle of head versus heart. Both Ari and Chase are dealing with unplanned obstacles that have them pining for one another.
Richards writes this story in alternate point of views which allows readers to see the differences between the characters train of thought, as well as where their relationship really went wrong. Richards cleverly incorporates the competitive world of sport into this story, letting it highlight and support the importance of it’s presence in the book and to the development of their relationship. Hate To Love You will have you on the edge of your seat, trying to work out all the details and praying for an explosion of emotions, that results in the very highly anticipated reunion of Ari and Chase.
