Hate to Love You (Baker's Bunch Book 1)Hate to Love You by Lily Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hate To Love You is the first book in the Baker’s Bunch series by Lily Ryan. It was the first time I had read any work from this author so I was unsure what to expect. What I got was a well written ‘forbidden love’ story that I really enjoyed.
Samantha (also Sam or Sammie) Stone has been in love with her brother Tyler’s best friend Cole Andrews for as long as she can remember.
Cole Andrews has been secretly fighting his attraction to his best friend Tyler’s little sister Sammie for a long time. Tyler has never hidden the fact that he would be ‘extremely upset’ if Cole ever went anywhere near Sammie.
When tragedy almost strikes and Tyler has a very narrow escape from the grim reaper, Cole and Sammie, in comforting each other, take their friendship to a whole new level.
In trying to keep things from Tyler, Cole ends up deeply hurting Sammie and what ensues is an excellent storyline between Sammie, Cole, Tyler and a few other secondary characters who are a great addition to the story. What I did have to remind myself on many occasions was just how young Sammie’s character was, as so many times I wanted to scream “grow up” at her.
I really enjoyed this first book in the Barker’s Bunch series and as there were some really great secondary characters, I look forward to seeing what the author has in store in future books in the series
