Spoiler Alerts!!! JL Beck you have done it again! OMG I need the next book like now!!! Holy crap I really want to punch Corey in the throat right now! He better find a way to fix this cause his actions suck! I get that he's freaked out but that was really harsh. I have a feeling it's gonna get worse before it gets better though. Wow just wow! Mimi won't forgive so easily I don't think and she should. He basically told her she was just a good time to him. It takes two so he needs to man up and ...more

+++5 HATEFUL STARS!!! +++

What a total mind f*ck of a read. Seriously, I’m currently suffering from a book hangover & I need Bittersweet Trust, like I need air!

So where do I even begin with this book. Bittersweet Hate takes place where Bittersweet Love left off & again J.L. Beck makes sure to leave her readers with a cliffhanger at the end & with this one, I swear I’m just about ready to dive over the edge head first (ugly sobbing) .

First off I have to say I received this as an ARC directly from the author in exchange for my honest review. Now that the formalities are out of the way let's get down to the nitty gritty :)

4.5 Emotionally Charged Stars

J.L. Beck has done it again! This was another great book! Please, please heed the warnings you will be angry and frustrated with a lot of the book. It is good, but very strong emotions throughout the whole thing. If you want sweet, romance, and butterflies this may not be for you.

Finally, I get Mimi’s POV and let me tell you : JL Beck did not disappoint! I FLOVE Mimi, she has made my BGF list!

She is a freaking spitfire, in and out of the bed! Mimi’s inner dialogue with herself as well as her outspoken nature will definitely have you laughing and asking if she really said that! I would never want to be on her bad side that’s for sure! She is confident, strong and beautiful but at the time there is so much more to her. She is simply a girl afraid to fall in love so she ha

OhMyGod! This book was the BEST book in the series by far.
I admit I wasn't really fond of the first two books. I just couldnt connect with Jenna and to be honest I was more interested in Mimi and Corey's love/hate relationship from the beginning which is why I was excited to read this book, but did I antisipate just HOW much I would like it? No. I had no freakin' clue that this would become one of my favorites of the year.

Mimi Jones is AMAZING. She's funny, fierce and well.... Mimi.

Bittersweet Hate is the best in the series! JL Beck is getting better and better as the series goes on.

This is Mimi and Corey's story. Two of the characters I hated have made me fall in love with them.

But of course at the end, I hate Corey Winchester again grrrrrr

I need Bittersweet Trust, yesterday!

Now, on to Bittersweet Symphony!

I enjoyed getting to know Mimi in the first two books of this series, so I was pretty excited to read the beginning of her story in Bittersweet Hate. I was NOT disappointed!

Mimi worked her way into my book-loving heart with her compassion and dedication to her best friend, Jenna, who was being bullied and harassed by their classmates. Mimi's fierce loyalty and sassy, fiery attitude made her an incredible character.

In Bittersweet Hate, I got to know more about Mimi and learned she has vulnerabil

4 Stars!

This was a good story. It was a quick read that packed a serious punch.. It was full of tense moments and drama along with some serious steam.

This is Mimi and Corey's story. If you have read books one and two in this series, then you know these two have a seriously complicated love/hate relationship that is almost violent and seriously toxic. But when these two come together, it is explosive. But like with these two nothing is easy and is definitely hard.

I would recommend reading books

Definitely the BEST J.L. book yet! I just knew Corey and Mimi would be freaking fabulous together. Their sexual chemistry was "holy shit" explosive! ...And to all the people who still aren't sure about Corey and Mimi, trust me, you will NOT be disappointed. I think I might even like them more than Jenna and Rex. ;)

I loved Mimi as the herione. In my opinion, she is PERFECT for Corey. She's probably the only one who can keep up with him. Loved her sassiness!

I love to HATE Corey!

After watching the relationship of Jenna and Rex in the first two installments of the Bittersweet series, I was anxious to see Mimi’s perspective. What I love most about Bittersweet Hate is getting to know Mimi Jones and how she ticks. She's tough as nails and doesn't take crap from anyone. That makes her relationship with Corey a surprising one. They both possess very strong Alpha personalities and regularly clash. In the beginning Corey steps up as Mimi’s knight in shining

Holy Cow!!!! I love this series. First Jenna and Rex and now Mimi and Corey!

Corey is a strong man who treats people the meanest and crudest way. In the first book. Now in college and knowing how he treated people he is trying to make it up. Mimi was dating a guy named Brody but Brody did some harmful things to Mimi and Corey help her out. But over time the feelings of love and hate got mix up and soon Corey figured out how much he care for Mimi even tho he felt like he needed to prove he was a g

Book 3 has gotten to be the best one so far in the bittersweet series.

Much awaited story of Corey and Mimi, and I have to say Josi hasn't let us down. Corey and Mimi are as explosive than ever!

There love/Hate relationship has you walking on eggshells. Just when things seem to turn around and go for the young couple. There's a little problem that puts that all to a sudden stop.

This book ends on a good cliffhanger and will leave you salivating for book 4 and wanting to tear into Corey. Tut tut t

This book is a very highly charged emotional roller-coaster ride. Well written and very entertaining to read. I was given a free copy by the author for an honest review. I did not read the first two books of the series and yet it did not distract from the story. Just when the girl/woman finally lets some love in all things turn to hell in a hand basket. There is a cliffhanger at the end to help facilitate you into reading the next book in the series. Very enj

Another great piece of the story. This time we get to look at the relationship between Corey and Mimi. This one is a bit more turbulent because their's is truly a love / hate thing for much for much of the story. When they finally get together, you get a real glimpse of them as individual characters, about their fears and their driving forces. Now we all have to wait to see what will become of them because in truth, their emotionally turbulent relationship is just beginning and now there are ...more

Bittersweet Hate is book three of the Bittersweet series by J. L. Beck. This is absolutely the best book of the three.

After reading the first two books we already have an idea about the core personalities of Mimi and Corey; Bittersweet Hate expands on how these two individuals mesh as a couple.

"Let me own you, let me be the reason you eat, breathe, and sleep. Let me love you, and you'll never have a worry in the world. Give yourself to me, and I'll forever be yours. ~ Corey Winchester

I know right? I couldn't believe those words came from Corey Winchester either. If you've read Bittersweet Revenge and Bittersweet Love you know Corey is actually, well a douche to put it mildly. He spent two years making Jenna Hanes life complete misery. All for something she had nothing to do with. But

The story of Mimi and Corey.

Their story started as hate, they hated each other with every fiber of their being, but neither one knew that what they felt deep inside was a whole other story.

Mimi and Corey’s relationship was always a roller coaster ride. They had a love hate relationship, that neither one knew anything better….until that one day when they both finally gave in to their sexual frustration. All it took was one taste and Corey never wanted to leave Mimi’s side ever again. After that

Bittersweet Hate is the 3rd book in the Bittersweet Series.

This series is being written and released in a way I have never seen before and I am totally in love with it! So far it has been a story of 5 people and each book focuses on two of them while the other characters still play important roles. The first book (Bittersweet Revenge) sets up the series.

We have already met Mimi and Corey in the other Bittersweet series of books by J.L.Beck and this one is just as good as the rest. I think it may be my firm fave so far, the story is break neck, from the beginning when we experience a traumatic event with Mimi to her combustable relationship with Corey. We also learn more in this book about Corey who we have met in both book 1 and 2, and was a central part of Jenna and her story. I also really enjoyed the glimpse and it is a glimpse into the ...more
