♕ REVIEW ♕ HATE TO LOVE YOU BY TIJAN

TITLE: Hate to Love you
AUTHOR: Tijan
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: August 28th, 2017
Rule #1: No hot guys.
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, 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.
Right?
Wrong.
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.

4_STARS

HATE TO LOVE YOU: is a standone, college romance novel by Tijan. In this we meet 
Kennedy Clarke, a feisty heroine who abide by three rules. And Shay Coleman 
star football captain and quarterback 

1: No hot guys
2: No drama
3: New year, new place, new me

Kennedy is starting over at Dulane University, a blank slate, she's reserved and guarded which is understandable given her history. She doesn’t want her past to repeat itself. Back in highschool girls used her for one sole purpose and that was to get closer to her two brothers, Gage and Blake. So for that girls loved her but the guys either respected her or hated her due to their stance on her brothers. Because of this she is now very reserved and has has some serious trust issues. 

I started college with the plan of befriending one, maybe two people, and I was going to study. I was going places. There would be no boys, no gossiping, no cattiness. I wasn't going to get involved in any drama. 

Her dream has always been to become a lawyer, being a freshman sharing a class with upperclassmen, friends were few and far between but apparently her brother asked Shay to keep an eye out for her since they were taking the same class - Political Science.

Being placed in Shay’s discussion group in class the it guy around campus, her rules slowly obliterate one by one. 

Shay grabbed my heart and didn't let go, his character held his own, he wasn't your normal man whore jock, you never saw that side to him, very rarely you'd see him drinking, once his sights were on Kennedy that as it, all his devotion went into making sure she was safe. 

This author fast became one of my favourites with her Fallen Crest High Series, so whenever anything of hers comes up I jump on it, she always so effortlessly has this knack of grabbing her readers full attention as soon as you start anything by her and this book is no different. I was hooked from the get go. Her writing style is unique to her, no one does it better when it comes to her college dramas, college life. 

A few things why I didn't rate this 5 stars is Kennedy's hulk moments (the dick crusher) they just seemed over the top, and I didn't really feel the hate she stated she felt towards Shay, he didn't step out of line or do anything untowards her to garner her hating him, that never really came across for me. But other than those two things (and I am in the minority here, but those are just my opinions) I still really enjoyed this book. I must've because I inhaled this in record time. 

This is why I'd been adamant about not befriending him,about not being in a study group with him, about not looking at him, talking to him, anything. Because I knew, deep inside, that I was going to fall in love with him.

♕ REVIEW BLITZ ♕ DRUNK DIAL BY PENELOPE WARD

TITLE: Drunk Dial
AUTHOR: Penelope Ward
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: August 21st, 2017
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. 

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. 

I didn’t think he’d call me back. 

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. 

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. 

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

Debra Anastasia likes to write from her heart, her soul or her butt. The genres she dabbles in are examples of that. There are two paranormal romances in the Seraphim Series and now four contemporary romances in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series and a stand alone in the same genre, Mercy. Fire Down Below and Fire in the Hole, Booty Camp Dating Service and Beast complete her comedy repertoire. The Revenger, a dark paranormal romance, is finally in the light, and the last, a novella called Late Night with Andres, is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. 

Debra lives in Maryland with her two kids, husband of twenty years and two dogs. The king of the house is clearly the tuxedo cat that is the size of a small donkey. Find about her latest adventures on DebraAnastasia.com
