Hate to Love You was a good 4 star read and book one in the Baker’s Bunch series.
Samantha’s world has been turned upside down. Her brother is in the hospital and she has a secret that could really hurt people she loves. When Cole shows up to comfort her and take her to the hospital things take a heated turn. Cole quickly puts a stop to it, knowing that Samantha is forbidden, she is his best friend’s sister.
Samantha has had a crush on Cole for years. Cole has also noticed Samantha, but her brother has pretty much threatened him and told him hands off. With emotions running high and the heat between them, can they deny their feelings? Can they possibly get a HEA?
I overall enjoyed this read but I had some very high frustration levels with Sam. I had to keep telling myself she’s only 17. There is a lot of misinterpretations and misunderstandings, that add to the drama. There is also a learning piece, don’t always believe what you see and get the real story from those involved. The secondary characters were good and added a great element to the story. I actually would like to see more from these two and look forward to reading more from this series.
