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.
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.
An epic whirlwind of college drama that had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. When it comes to New Adult Romance, TIJAN is definitely my GO TO AUTHOR of choice!
HATE TO LOVE YOU by Tijan kind of snuck up on me in such a good way. If you are familiar with my reviews, you would know that I don’t read a lot of New Adult Romances. But when TIJAN writes a book, you read it dammit! And that’s exactly what I did, and I FELL IN LOVE with her work all over again. The main reason I don’t read a lot of college romances is because of the ridiculous amount of angst and anxiety they usually put me through. I mean, I’ve lived that angst years ago and who would want to go back there? But again, it comes back to the trust that I have in this author. She is known so well in this genre and kills it every single time, so who am I to turn away something so necessary?
As it turns out…I freaking DEVOURED this book. I DEVOURED the drama, the angst, the suspense, EVERYTHING. Who knew, right? Yes, these characters were in college but their problems, their issues, their situations were so much more than that. If you read the synopsis, yes you will have a huge smile on your face and you will THINK you know what’s to come, but you would be SO WRONG. I was surprised by the direction the author went, but it didn’t make it any less engaging and captivating. Kennedy was a TERRIFIC heroine! She’s actually my spirit animal in every way possible and if I had to do college all over again, I would want to be by her side every step of the way. Shay Coleman was a MOUTH-WATERING hero! He is so much more than what you think he is and you will find out just how perfect he is for our beloved heroine, and the struggles she is about to embark upon.
All in all, I couldn’t read this book fast enough! TIJAN takes us on quite a journey and I loved and craved every single second of it. It flows effortlessly and the characters and their stories will stay with you long after the last page has turned.
