Love to Hate Her Review

About the Book

A rare moment of weakness.
A burning desire impossible to deny.
Forbidden words I should never have spoken.

Seven years ago, I confessed my darkest secret to my brother’s girlfriend. When she broke up with him and walked out of our lives, she took my secret with her.
But, with my band set to go on tour around the world, I have a problem. I need a nanny for my autistic daughter. And unfortunately, Viola Starr, my brother’s ex, is the perfect fit.
Now, there is no escaping her. Or our past.
Especially when my brother seems determined to win her back.
Five months and she’ll be out of my life again.
Five months of ignoring lingering, heated glances.
The fire she draws out of me. The way she loves my daughter.
Five months… And my world is about to come crashing down around me.


Phew, I feel like I have come out of a deep sleep with how fast I’ve been reading books the past two days! I had been in slumpsville and only reading books because I had to, but dang did this duet get me out of that!

I mean, this book just immediately hooked me! I’m such a sucker for a good angsty book (must be why I’m so melodramatic) and oh boy was this book angsty! All that pent up frustration! My favorite enemies to lovers plot! I just can’t get enough of it! And this book was still steamy without it even having any hugely smutty scenes!

Now, I’m not usually into stories with kids/single parents, but I have to admit that I absolutely adored Adalyn! As someone who used to work with kids with autism I’m always delighted to see it represented in a wholesome way in books! Now, for those of you who are adamant about person first language, just be warned that it’s not widely used throughout this book. Which I both kind of appreciated (there has been a shift away from it that I’ve seen lately) and was also a little jarring (since I’ve become so used to using it).

Also, another BIG warning is to make sure that you have the second book prepped and ready to go! As soon as you finish this one, you’re not going to want to stop! Plus it ends on a bit of a cliff hanger (in a sense), so it just makes sense to immediately continue the duet!

About the Author

J. Saman is a USA Today bestselling author who loves all types of novels, but finds herself always going back to writing/reading romances. She’s addicted to Diet Coke and sour candy, and swears way too much. If she’s not with her kids and husband then you can likely find her chilling out somewhere with a drink and a book in her hand. Hopefully on a beach somewhere because that seems pretty amazing, right?
