Four Stars

Hate to Love You is the first book in the Baker’s Bunch series by
Lily Ryan. This story had me hooked from the very first page and I read the whole book in one sitting. This emotional read had me rooting for Cole and Samantha. Trying to keep their feelings a secret can only cause problems between themselves, their family and friends. This is set for a younger crowd but I still loved it in my middle age. The emotions were a roller coaster ride that will make you go from high highs to low lows. I enjoyed the readsand hope to read the next book in the series.

Hate to Love You by Lily Ryan was a good introduction to this author for me. This new adult forbidden best friend’s little sister romance, kept me turning the paper to find out what was going to happen next. Cole and Samantha have been in each other’s life for about 8 years, but the day Samantha’s brother over-dozed is when things changed for them. It’s the unforgettable question of will they or won’t they start a relationship? Are they going to hide or tell the brother?

Young love can be so confusing and insecurities can make you do some stupid things. Cole and Samantha had a lot of ups and downs throughout this book that can make your head spin but once things were out in the open, things came together in a good way. I would love to see some of the secondary characters get a book and get updates on Cole and Samantha. This could be a good start to a college romance series.

Hate to Love You is the first book in the Bakers Bunch Series by author Lily Ryan. Samantha Stone has had a thing for her big brother’s best friend, Cole Andrews, since she was a pre-teen. After an incident forces the two together for one night, they decide they want each other but don’t know how their relationship would affect those around them. Do they take a chance or go back to the place they have always held in each other’s lives?
This was a pretty good story; I did definitely prefer Cole’s character over Samantha’s though. Samantha was definitely a young, naïve and at times highly annoying. Fortunately for the story she does redeem herself. This was my first book by Ms. Ryan but it probably won’t be my last.

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

One of my favourite reads is a second chance romance and this one was no different it had me hooked from page one. Cole and Sam have always had chemistry and feelings for one another while they were growing up but at the time a relationship just wasn’t going to happen it was a big fat NO so they just kept how they were truly feeling to themselves which isn’t easy. Year’s later thing’s change they kiss will they finally get their happy ever after and be together and true to themselves. Such a brilliant read i enjoyed every second!

Hate to Love You (Baker’s Bunch Book 1) By Lily Ryan. I loved everything about this book, the author writes a story that had me completely hooked from start to finish. The emotions and chemistry Cole and Samantha have jumped off the pages and took me on quite the journey. I’m a sucker for a “forbidden “ love story and while they can get predictable not once did I feel that feeling reading this story. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. The characters are complex and relatable and I truly won’t forget their story any time soon. I can’t wait to see where the author takes readers next. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book was a rough ride. The story is wonderful, the characters are fantastic and the issues Sam and Tyler’s family face are very real. The drama with Sam and her brother’s best friend Cole is over the top. I say that because everything can always be worked out by communication, but Sam seemed to have the most trouble doing that. Throughout the whole book it seemed Sam and Cole just couldn’t stop breaking each other’s hearts over and over. At one point Cole has had enough and Sam realizes she could lose him forever if she doesn’t get her issues together. Their relationship is beautiful though, and I really pulled for them the whole way.

This book had me on edge the whole way through and I could not put it down. There are some great steamy scenes and an awesome story line. I would highly recommend this to any romance lover.

Hate to Love You is the first book in Lily Ryan’s Baker’s Bunch Book. It is a young adult story of the pain of growing up … it is a hot mess overloaded with emotions and knee jerk reactions and it is not surprising, it is for young adults so if you are of my age and you found yourself reading it, tone down your criticism and look at it through the eyes of the young ones. Growing up is not a party though at times it seems so to us who are on the fringes and we look at the popular crowd!
Hate to Love You is a forbidden love story of Samantha ‘Sam’ Stone and Cole Andrews. Cole is Sam’s brother’s best friend so you can imagine why it is a forbidden love story! Things happen and both give in to their feelings for one night … what happens then? The writer gives us the story from both Sam’s and Cole’s point of view so we have the front row seat to their angst, I mean their feelings … it is a rollercoaster ride and most of us can relate to it for sure! As it is the first book in the series, I wonder who the next one is …
