About Love the One You Hate (OUT NOW!)
Nicholas Hunt is the man I hate.
For good reason.
His opinion of me is tainted by prejudice even before my arrival at his grandmother’s estate, and my first impression of him is just as abysmal.
His arrogance and icy demeanor make it clear that he’s the type of man who’s best handled at a distance.
Fortunately, space shouldn’t be an issue inside this Gilded Age mansion and its lush gardens. If I stick with the servants and he keeps to his sailboat and vintage Porsche, we should hardly cross paths at all. Unfortunately, at Rosethorn, I find that all roads eventually lead to Nicholas Hunt.
Sparks fly as we spar at the dinner table. Fighting words are flung in the shadows of the palatial halls.
We hang suspended in our hatred of one another, painfully oblivious to the heat and tension that build with every moment we’re left alone. We’re liable to kill one another, I think…right up until my eyes land on his lips and a new feeling grips hold of me: lust.
He knows it.
They say you should keep your enemies close, but when Nicholas tightens his grip on my waist and draws me near, I’m not sure if it’s out of loathing or love.
One thing’s for sure—I intend to find out.

Love The One You Hate was a bit different from what I’m used to from R.S. Grey.
Definitely different good.
Maren was my hero here, soft and sweet but so tough at the same time. Trying to keep a job, one day at the time, working in a nursing home.
Then she went from a life when she had to survive and stay strong to a world she wouldn’t have imagined. Still in this new place she had to prove to Cornelia’s grandson, Nicholas that she wasn’t trying to take advantage of the situation.
The moment they met, it wasn’t a meet-cute for sure. There were sparks turning every moment into a ticking bomb, bickering and trying to have the last word, always with subtlety and class, or not!
They drove me crazy with their antics but it was delightfully entertaining.
He saw her as an enemy, his protectiveness towards his family could provoke some rude attitude, knowing exactly how to push her buttons.
I appreciated their routine, a banter that made me smile so hard, until the lines became blurred, turning hate into that something more, which brought their relationship to a new level.
I had to be honest, I was more passionate about Maren’s new life, seeing how she trusted her instincts, staying true to herself than the romance itself in the first place.
It took me a little while to connect with Nicholas, I guess his hot and cold side was sometimes unnerving but I totally saw the evolution from the moment he met Maren, who has turned his world upside down without even trying.
I appreciated the slow burn between these two, arguing until they finally saw past all the hate they seemed to have for each other.
This story wasn’t just only funny moments but also a beautiful journey about finding your way in the most unexpected places, to seize a chance when given.
