Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You by Marie Skye. I loved this book. I love Marie Skye so I was super excited to read it and it did not disappoint other than the fact it was a little short. We meet Perrie & Ash who have met in University and even dated some and had a one night stand in Las Vegas. Now Ash needs a roommate and she has advertised for one. She’s not picky just a few things like no smoking or being all up in her business she just needs the money. When she gets one super fast she is shocked and happy until she realizes its none other than Perrie. While she still enjoys looking at Perrie she’s not so sure her heart can take this arrangement. When it comes to the wire though Perrie is there for her and that may be the best part of all.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book in the Historical Fantasy Fairytale Retellings series. This story is set in the 1800’s in England and follows Melinda. Melinda took care of her father’s estate while he was sick. When he died, the estate was left to a distant relative. She had nowhere else to go and is allowed to stay and work as a maid for her cousin – for free. This was such a refreshing retelling of Cinderella.

Happily Ever After: Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You By Marie Skye

I really really enjoyed this book, it was so different to what I expected when I read the synopsis. I was expecting a “cutesy” romance tale of two roommates accidentally falling in love and facing the world together – and although I did get this – I was NOT expecting the amount of steam that Skye graced us with in this story. The sexual energy between these two characters was evident from the moment we meet them both. I was fascinated by both Ash and Perrie for different reasons. I enjoyed Perrie’s “take no prisoners” attitude and the way that Skye portrayed her as a strong, independent woman while also dipping into her intimate, timid, feminine side. The contrast and the way Skye teased vulnerability in Perrie’s character was particularly captivating. I wish there was more of this book, is the only bad thing I have to say about it. I wish the book was longer and we could spend more time getting to know these two characters and their backgrounds and the reasons they behave the way they do. I would have liked to learn more about Ash’s friends and the way he interacts with them, and I would have LOVED to know even just a tiny bit more about what happened after the ending. I think Skye did an amazing job of leaving you wanting more and I am excited to see what else she has to offer, I really enjoy her writing style.

What a great short story! Don’t Worry, I Still Hate you is a story written by Marie Skye. I just absolutely love this author! In this story, which I wish was longer by the way, we meet Perrie and Ash. These two have known each other since they were in high school. By mere chance, they reconnected in Las Vegas while Perrie was at a Bachelorette party! Perrie thought that this was the last time they would see each other, however fate had a different plan. Perrie needed a roommate and posted an ad about it. Low and behold, who shows up? Ash! This was an awesome story with lots of steamy moments as well as lots of comedy. These two characters have a lot of great chemistry and balanced each other very well. Like I said earlier, I wished this story was longer but it was great nonetheless. It was definitely a story that I could not put down! I can’t wait to read more from Marie Skye!

I read Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You by Marie Skye in the Happily Ever After Collection. This enemies-to-roommates-to-lovers romance will have you giggling the whole time.

Perrie and Ash have a past that I felt like I was missing something but I was intrigued to see where this story would go. And I’m glad I stuck with them. All the emotions that I love about romances were in this short story – the love/hate bantering, disappointed understandings, and how you cry because of how everything worked out.

I can’t wait to check out other stories in this boxset.

I loved the book written by Marie Skye. I have read many books by this author and have loved all of them.
This book in particular is about two main characters, Perrie and Ash. These two characters have met again after a night they spent together quite a while ago. When they find themselves face to face again what will happen? This was a quick read but the chemistry between these two is out of control. This is a second chance romance but will they take that chance? Such an amazing read. You definitely do not want to miss out on this one.

This is a box set of romances with feisty women and handsome men, there are flings, forbidden romances, enemies turning to friends, second chances and comedy galore, but the one I enjoyed most was “Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You” by Marie Skye where Perrie is looking for a way out of a hen weekend in Las Vegas, but to no avail and she ends up going, even though it is someone she isn’t really that fond of, so to distract herself she is writing the advert for the roommate she is in need of, but she is getting distracted by her friend talking about a new app she has downloaded and signed her up for too, safe to say that she is not impressed! All the talk about sex is embarassing her, but only because she isn’t getting any and has managed to kind of organise it with someone she isn’t keen on, but after 3 years, anything is better than nothing and when she gets a match on her app later on, it happens to be someone she knows, Ash and someone who knows how good they look and that most women would fall over themselves to get it on with a guy like him.

When he comes over to talk to her later, Perrie does her best to avoid conversation, even though he is trying so she makes up her mind and walks away. Later on, Perries leaves the party and goes back to her room, but cannot sleep, she keeps on thinking about how good Ash looked and when she matches with someone who sent a video too, she decides it is only sex and to go for it. Ash is in the middle of a business video call when there is a knock at his door and he sees Perrie but he has no idea why and when she mentions a dance party, he is even more confused, but when she says she was glad it was him, he decides to play along and that is where the night gets passionate. Perrie leaves his room and sneaks back to her own room while trying not to wake the others, but her friend is awake and she wants the gossip, , but PErrie is being tight lipped because everyone knows what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Almost a year later, Perrie has been through two roommates and is rejigging the advert for a third, but she is only getting weirdo’s and addicts until she gets a message from Ashley who seems to be everything she wanted in the advert and so agrees to send over the lease and that the keys will be waiting as she won’t be there that weekend, but two weeks later, she arrives home late and goes straight to her room to crash out, but a few hours later, she is woken up by really loud music and so goes into the kitchen to prepare a pot of coffee and say hi to her new roommate, but when they come out of their room, Perrie is in for a shock when she realises that it is the man from Vegas, but this is going to be the least of her worries.

The other tales cover everything a die hard romance reader would love to read and I would definitely recommend them, so go fill your boots with this compendium of stories and let the hopeless romantic in you out.

I really enjoyed Don’t Worry, I Still Hate You in this boxed set. It is by Marie Skye. Her stories are always original and unique.

This story follows Perrie and Ash who have a past and have run into each other periodically throughout their lives. When Ash responds to an add for a roommate and Perrie turns out to be the person looking for a roommate, it seems that fate has put them in each others paths again.

Are the feelings deeper than hate? Is there anything to develop from their new closeness?

This story was funny and super cute, in a unique way. I loved the characters and didn’t want to put it down!

So far I have read Marie Skye’s entry of Don’t Worry I Still Hate You!

This was so much different than I expected and I shouldn’t even be surprised because that is exactly what Marie does to you while she is writing.
She has this ability to suck you in and lead you on and all is well, until it isn’t! It’s unexpected and saucy and everything it needs to be when you get to the final words.
The characters were very well constructed and it was a pretty quick read that had a great ebb and flow to it.
Now to go get the rest of the stories!

5 Stars

Happily Ever After is a collection absolutely jam packed with some authors I know and many I didn’t. I’ve read a few from this collection and will focus on my favorite for this review.

I am a forever fan of Marie Skye, I’ll read anything she writes and know that I’ll be completely sad when it’s over and I have to wait to start another one. This one started out a little bumpy for me..Had to wrap my head around what was going on, kinda like coming into the middle of a movie. It did not take long to pick up what this author was doing though. I got all my answers as I kept reading and very quickly became completely invested in these characters. I literally laughed out loud so many times at these two. The back and forth was complete perfection and as the story progressed I realized I was experiencing every emotion possible while reading. I was sad, disappointed, SUPER angry at some truths that came out towards the end and then I found myself crying at the very end at how things played out. Hard to explain how much I loved this story, even though it’s hard to understand at the very beginning. It completely smooths out and flows seamlessly.

Reading this shorter story has made me miss this author’s writing so much that I plan to open the ones I already have and do a complete reread.

I also can not wait to read the rest of the stories I have not gotten to yet, and just know I’ll come away with some new authors to keep track of.

Loved It!!
