One night. No one will know.

That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts-and the last names that made them enemies.

Until the night she didn’t show up.

Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want…so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?

Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence–and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.

Being together might be against all the rules…but being apart is impossible.

Reviewed by Beth (@PickettPhD)

The relationship between Livvy and Nicholas, childhood friends and then teenaged lovers, was supposed to have ended with the tragedy and family feuding that began ten years ago. Unable to fully let go of each other, they’ve been secretly meeting once a year for a no-strings-attached night together.

“This is not a fairy tale. This is reality, with all its problems and hassles and issues and absurd family dynamics….”

Hate to Want You is a contemporary romance with SO MUCH emotional realism.  There are no perfect paragons and no magic sexual experiences that heal all and fix everything. There is a lengthy minefield for these characters to pick their way across as they confront their past, sort out present relationships with themselves, their family, and their friends, and decide the future that they want. This is the absolutely beautiful, incredibly sexy, and emotionally compelling story of their growth, their second chance at love, and their acceptance of themselves and of each other as the adults they now are.

I loved absolutely everything about this book.  5 stars
