Dear Lord, I would like to thank you for helping me get through this book. There were times where I had to put it down because I got mad at the characters. But that is what I enjoy about Lauren's writing, she bring out your emotions full front and gets the reader like myself invested in her stories. Now the characters...

*sighs* Why did it have to end?

See that is my problem with novellas...I just don't want to see them go. But that is a good problem to have, because it means that you really loved the book!

Here you meet Ry, and oh how I loved her! This book is full of teenage angst, and heartbreak as you live inside the world of being the "other" women. Ry is constantly talking herself into leaving Henry, but then when she is around him she just can't. Henry is tormenting her with his addictiveness and it is
Well, as you can probably guess from the title, this is a story about a love triangle...a teenage love triangle...involving Henry - the hottest-looking guy in the senior class, Callie - his bitch-on-wheels girlfriend of 4 years, and Riley - the quiet, pretty girl who has fallen head-over-heels in love with Henry and is now his secret "piece" on the side. After spending nearly every night of the summer with Henry (he would climb through her window after her mother had retired each evening), Riley ...more

He Loves MeHe Loves You Not is a short story by Lauren Hammond. I was glued to the pages of this novel. I had to find out what was going on and how things were going to turn out. I couldnt put it down. It definitely held my attention and interest.

Now that I have finished reading this novel, I am not entirely sure how I feel about it. This was the first story I have read thats told from the other womans

Short, sweet and to the point, this is a good fast book.

What I like most about this book is the great drama that is in it. There is no dragging things out but it all happens fast and to the point. Even though the book is small, it delivers what it is supposed to. An entertaining teen drama about love and lost.

I really adored the characters and their struggles. So much is put into this small book that it is easy to take all in. I like that each character is unique and fresh. They each have a

I try not to read YA books, but I really liked this one.
Great story, I LOVED Riley, I felt I could sympathize with her, she's totally honest about her emotions and you can actually feel her pain and struggle. Henry was OK, I felt he could have acted differently.

i'm a huge fan of love triangles..the intensity..the passion..the thrill of secret love..this book definitely covered all these aspects for me..and i did love it..definitely worth reading :)
Id told myself that some part of him was better than no part of him. But some part of him is beginning to break me. I want more. I need more. Because just like Callie, Im in love with him, too. - Riley

I love the stories that have happily ever afters, but if you were to ask me to choose between that and a story about an angst-driven romance, I would probably choose the latter. I dont know why I like books about messy, imperfect, gut wrenching relationships so much. Maybe on some level I feel like

"He Loves Me ... He Loves You Not" is the book that I have a really hard time to read. It's such a heart-breaking story and I also hate the plot ... one boy and two girls ... it's not my style at all. However, I kind of dig this book.

1. I like the way Lauren Hammond starts every chapters with the beautiful quote about love which relates to the details in that chapter.

2. I love Riley. She's in a complicated situation ... she's truly deeply in love with some girl's boyfriend. But she still have

Reading this book made me feel so many emotions. I was up, down and twisted inside out by the time I was finished. I don't think that I will ever be able to stop praising Lauren Hammond for her work. This is the third book of hers that I have read and just love them all.

Riley is so torn about her relationship with Henry. She knows that she is head over heels in love with him but is unsure how he feels about her no matter how many times he tells her she is the one. The fact is that Henry already

I'm not sure how I feel about this.
I appreciated that Riley was a sympathetic
and honest character--it was easy to understand
how torn she was for being in love with a guy
that was already taken.

It was Henry that bothered me (and the writing,
but I'll get to that in a bit).

I really didn't like that the author tried to
justify his actions. Yes, he had "other things
going on" in his life that were troublesome, but
really? How could that make everything okay?

In the end, he was still a selfish coward who

Lauren...your slowly killing me with every book of yours I read! I can't possibly cry anymore or have my heart torn for these easily lovable characters that you create and put through hell! Ugh! This one is gut wrenching, Henry is such a great and very desirable guy and the torture he goes through is beyond painful. Ry is amazing. Such a compassionate character and yet very naive. There were a few parts where I wanted to reach out and shake some smart into her. I only gave 4 stars because there ...more

Lauren Hammond, you have done it again! I really love this authors writing, it just flows so easily and the characters and feelings they express just feel so real, and spot on. Some may not agree, but I really felt for Riley's situation...the love was deep and I felt every emotion as it was my own.

This is a quick read; from page one I was hooked and I read it in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down! I would say my final rating is 4.8, dut to a few minor errors or typos.

I don't really care much for novellas. I enjoy reading full length books but this one caught my eye. I really enjoyed the idea of the story. However, the main character frustrated me at times and I didn't understand her thinking. I did though enjoy the story and wished it were longer. But it was well written and the interactions between the characters flowed really nicely. And you couldn't help but hope that Riley and Henry have their happily ever after.

This was a short read with high emotions! This book is all about being the "other women" and all the angst that goes along with it. I wanted the book to continue further into Riley and Henry's lives due to the fact that I kinda hated Henry, I would like to explain the "kinda", but I don't want to give anything away! All in all Riley's character was easy to relate to, be mad at and be proud of... pick this up when you are between books or searching for something short and sweet!

I couldn't help falling for this novella. The writing style is great and really drew me in. And I felt for the main character. Even though she knew she shouldn't be "the other woman," her love for Henry was too strong to deny.
This fun little read is a roller coaster of emotions that feel very real. As long as you don't mind a liberal helping of teen angst (and really, isn't that what YA is about?), you should enjoy this book.

He Loves Me...He Loves You Not... Is a nice, quick enjoyable read. The entire book is pretty much about teenage heartbreak, so there's a fair share on whining involved (but really, that's to be expected =] ), and you can't help but feel for them emotionally.
You can pretty much guess how it's going to end, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable, I would definitely recommend it =]
Wonderful and beautifully written, it's a short book but the author is able to convey a depth of emotion in 100 pages that other authors can't accomplish in 300 pages. I highly recommend this book! Pick this one up people!!

Not a long or very important story, but the author captured so well the intensity of teen angst! (I have my diaries from when I was 15-16 and oh, the drama...)

“As our kissing progresses, I don’t care that our tryst seems raunchy and wrong. I don’t care that I’m at school, in the boy’s bathroom. I don’t care that to most people this would seem cheap, dirty, and despicable. The only thing I can think about while he kisses me deeper, harder, faster, is that Henry Garner is the plague and the only thing I want him to do is infect me.” 21 likes
