4.5 Stars! I absolutely loved this one! I think what made it different from the regular insta hate books was the passion. When you read a book with as much passion as hatred like Vic and Em, you are caught off guard. Wanting one thing, but getting another, then enjoying the turnout in the end. I rooted for these two hard. The pain they had to overcome was a battle all in its own, but the love drilled deep that seeped through the cracks? That was the beauty, it's what I wanted from them. Very satisfied with this read!
They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true. The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares. He is a brilliant lawyer. A skilled criminal. A beautiful liar. A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover. Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.
She is a starving artist. Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom. Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down. She paid the price. Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate. That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t. So she hates me. Big fucking deal. She better get used to me.
