My Rating :
It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.
It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.
The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone.
Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it.
And we’re happy.
Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me.
As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.
I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.
NOTE: Make sure you read #Nerd before diving into this book as it is the continuation of Rimmel and Romeo’s story. Also, this is one of the BEST college romance series ever written! Hehe it’s my favorite!
This book is fantastic. To say I am a fan of Cambria Hebert’s work is an understatement. I devour her books and fangirl hard and every time I hear she is writing something new I totally jump with joy (don’t judge me). Why am I such a huge fan? For many reasons. First, each and every story that I have read by her has sucked me in and made me feel so invested with the characters it’s as if they have come to life and become my best friends. This is a hard feat my friends because I read A LOT and she is one of the few to do this for me EVERY TIME. Secondly, the way she weaves and tells these characters stories if phenomenal. You immediately feel like you are living with them and becoming a part of their lives/drama/and love life. Finally, she has a unique quality of writing. None of her books are too wordy, you never become confused with the dual POV’s, and she adds a uniqueness to each chapter by using hashtags to make you feel like you go to Alpha U too. I love this! With that being said, I loved #Hater. Like every single second, every single page, and every single word. Men should be living up to Romeo’s standards because he is utterly PERFECT. Moreover, this book adds just enough drama to make it exciting! So, if you haven’t read this series yet YOU HAVE TO. Gosh, it’s amazing!
As I said before, this is book 2, and the continuation of Rimmel and Romeo’s story as they navigate their new and serious relationship amidst a stalker that doesn’t know when to let go. Their relationship is as good as ever and it is clear to everyone how much these two love each other from the depths of their souls. But having someone continuously try to wear them down is problematic. Sure it doesn’t test them in terms of their feelings, but it does cause a lot of unnecessary pain for Rimmel and Romeo. So what will happen with this stalker? And will their relationship ever be the same after the allegations made against them? READ IT!!!
Overall, this is an easy 5-star book for me. I love Romeo and Rimmel, I love the way they interact with one another, the love they have for one another, and how perfectly suited they are for each other. They are simply just one of the best couples I have ever come across in all the books I have read. So yea, I highly recommend this one (and the entire series).
