Review by Lisa Kane

I simply, utterly loved this book. It frustrated me to no end and the main characters are an exercise in patience with their on again/off again relationship. They were rivals in their youth, almost bordering on enemies. Their families are as close as you can get without a blood bond. Arianna is the daughter of two powerhouse athletes. Her mom was the world's foremost tennis player and her dad was a football god. Now he is a coach. Since her mom's tragic
I enjoyed this so much. Two families, parents have been best friends forever, even built houses next to each other. Had their children a day apart, Chase and Charlie (brother/sister) are twins and Ari is an only child. There was jealous between Chase and Ari all their lives. Chase's father was famous for baseball but had nothing on Ari's dad Aiden who was a famous ex-football player and her mom was a famous tennis player. Chase was like the boy Aiden never had, Chase happened to be a quarterback ...more

I hate to love this book right now! Oh the angst! Oh the crazy train that is this book! I want my greedy hands on book 2 NOW!
This story follows the lives of Arianna and Chase. Two people who hate and love each other at the same time. They are super competitive in life and when it comes to their relationship it is even worse. They fight hard and love hard and we get to go along the ride with them!
They are both in the public eye and are athletes. The story goes back and forth between past to pres

OMG. I loved that book. I'm shivering. What's going to happen next? My head now I just overloaded with excitement from this most marvellous book. I just can't wait till the second one. This couple Ari and Chase are just up and down. You don't know if they hate each other or completely in love. They are competing against each other constantly. When will it end.

This most amazing book and soon to be series was written by now one of my new most favourite authors Isabelle Richards. I would recommend

3.5 - 4 tension filled stars

As I'm reflecting on my thoughts regarding this series, I realized that reading the installments back to back definitely tainted my opinion of book one. So stepping back, I needed to just sort myself out, set aside all my feelings surrounding this couples journey in Love to Hate You, so that I can voice my true feelings while reading the beginning of their tale.

I liked this read - jammed packed with angst, anger, frustration, lust and high on the drama element. My fee

Hate To Love You is the first book that I've read by Isabelle Richards and will not be my last!

Arianna  and Chase are childhood friends who are at each other's  throats constantly during childhood and adolescents until one night changes everything.

Both sides of their families including  themselves  are always in the public eye. Her mother was a professional  tennis player like herself and her dad's a football genius. After that one night together they decided  to keep everything  on the down l

Have you ever read a book that makes you feel like your heart is about to jump out of your chest? Your brain is going so fast you just want to get up and run? Well this is how I feel after reading Hate to Love You. The story takes us between the present and past and it alternates from Ari and Chase’s POV. This one is going on my list of favorites and definitely recommending it!

Chase and Ari hate each other, since forever. But, then they love each other and it’s so good when they do. But, their

HOLY SHIT What a ride! Let me start by saying I was on vacation and stayed awake one night to devour this book. Once you start, you just can't stop! This is one hell of a ride, it will keep you on your toes with one hell of an ending! This is the first book I've read by Ms. Richards and I will tell you, it most definitely won't be the last. Ms. Richards knows how to suck you in where you feel like you can't breathe until you know what happens next.

I was given an ARC by Isabelle Richards, mega-talented author of the fast paced erotic thrillers, When Fate Collides series. This was another great book by the author. A new gifted writer gives us HATE TO LOVE YOU

Simple....rated 5 stars


Chase and Arianna have know each other all their lives. They are mammoth type A personalities. Win at all cost types who have competed and fought for years. The story is told mainly in the present with some flashbacks to their youth. It is a purely love hate r

This was the first book I've read by Isabelle Richards, and it won't be my last! I loved Chase & Ari's story. I'm not typically a fan of hate-to-lovers stories, but Isabelle made it work.

Chase & Ari's relationship was so toxic, and a simple conversation between them could turn on a dime, and then all hell would break loose. I loved the dual POV's, but I did get lost in the story a few times. I found it hard to keep track of the flashbacks, especially since the time periods were not in order. Bu
The lack of communication in this book was utterly frustrating. I honestly am not a big fan of Arianna. She is the ice queen. She doesn't feel things on a level that Chase does. She also runs. Any situation that is remotely emotional and she runs. Then she ices you out. She really got on my nerves.

Poor Chase. He has terrible taste in women. I know he has a bad temper and doesn't think things through. But I thought his behavior was appropriate for his age and situation.

Nauseating. This is not an example of a healthy relationship, kids. I'll give this book some credit though, it's definitely a lesson on how important communication is. The classic romance novel trope of unavoidable misunderstandings brought on by jumping to conclusions instead of being mature adults and talking is the driving force in this book. Which wouldn't be so bad if there was a worthy reward, but there isn't. The characters were boring, rich, semi-famous assholes with the collective perso ...more

This book needs a better cover
And a better name...

I thought this was going to be a short erotica read about a couple who just can't except their attraction, but end up in each other’s arms at the end of every fight, until one of them (usually the guy) says "Hey, I admit, I like you, so let’s just stop this bullshit and go steady". The end.

Which sort of is... but more.

The book starts two years after they broke up from a secret four years relationship. At first I barely could even feel the sexual

Jesey’s text to Isabelle Richards the moment she finished this story was “I love you but I hate you right now LOL I need more ASAP” and then she had to wait for Roxie to catch up LOL We both agree that this story will have your heart racing and that it will hook you fast!

Hate to Love You is an amazing story and the way that Isabelle Richards tells it is well executed. Told in dual POV and taking place in both the past and the present, we delve into the toxic relationship between Arianna and Chas

If Isabelle Richards wasn't already on my auto-buy list, LOVE TO HATE YOU would most definitely put her in that place. Her foray into a contemporary romance, with the story of Chase and Ari, childhood friends and enemies, is absolutely stellar and has me loving her even more.

LOVE TO HATE YOU is the history of Ari and Chase. Told in alternating points of view between Ari and Chase, we discover a couple who is incredibly competitive with the

Love to Hate You

I found myself completely absorbed in this story of two people that give new meaning to the word hate. Ari and Chase have an intoxicating chemistry that borders on toxic most of the time. Exploring their trials and tribulations was exciting, passionate, frustrating and angsty. I ate up this book that took the meaning of Love & Hate to a whole new level.

Isabelle Richards crafted dynamic characters that have depth and flaws that keep you invested as the story unfolds. The secondar

4.5 Emotional Stars for Hate To Love You
by Isabelle Richards

I am a first time reader of this author.. I completely enjoyed this story.

Arianna and Chase both are well known icons in the sports world. Chase is a NFL Quarterback and Arianna is a Tennis Star. They are competitive in everything they do and I mean everything, including hurting each other.

Their story is told in duel point of view and in just from past to present given us an understanding of the rivalry between the two. The secondary
I could not read this book fast enough. I am so happy I waited to start the series after all the books were out. The love/hate back and forth of the book was like a heated tennis match and it was so fun to be privy to. I usually stay away from drama books and books with all the feels, but this book had me hooked from the first word on the first page and I could not put it down.

Honestly I don't know where I stand with this book. I liked it, but felt nothing...? If that makes sense. Like it feels when you switch on a TV just to put something easy on, and it plays in the background. I got no feeling at all from this book (except a little sadness, because of the father), but everything else? Nothing. The romance nothing, the "tug and war", nothing.

Actual Rating: 4.5, Give me the next book, Stars!!

“Love is scary and intense and confusing.” “At one time or another, we’re all cowards in the face of something unpredictable and unknown. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Fear isn’t a dirty word.”

Toxic. Captivating. Intoxicating. Angsty. Those are just a few words to describe this book. Hate to Love is one of those stories that you are just going to love to hate ;)

Well damn...that about sums it up. I knew this story wasn't complete but I guess I didn't expect to feel like this when I got to the end of book one. I am feeling a lot of things but mostly dying for part two because leaving me in this state is just not that funny.

When you think of people hating each other you have certain expectations for their behavior towards each other, well take those expectations and throw them out the window. These two take hate to whole new level and perhaps it has somet

I was gifted with the chance to read this book early. Ari and Chase take the phrase Hate to Love You to a new level. These two have been rivals from childhood, pulling pranks on each other and constantly trying to one up each other. Over the years, the animosity has changed for both of them and then one night of sleeping together changes everything. You can't go back after sex and these two date in secret for years. To say their relationship ends poorly is an understatement and until a family dr ...more

I'm giving Hate to Love You 4.5 stars. First, I want to say that I found it funny and cute at times that they couldn't stand each other but under the surface they were so deeply in love. Chase and Ari were so different but their love for sports gave them a connection. Neither character feels as if the other shares the same feelings so when the povs switch it's as if we learn of their feelings before they even do. This book made me so mad!!!! There was so much back and forth between the character ...more

I'm having withdrawals, review to come later

Big warning, read at your own risk. There’s a CLIFF HANGER, no, HUGE CLIFF HANGER. Which means, if you’re obsessive like me, you can read the book on October 6th, because by the 7th you’re going to want to read the second part.

That said, let’s talk about the book. This is a fast paced-angsty-romance novel with ups and downs from page one until… you scream what’s going to happen next?

When I blew out my knee, I thought I’d get through it without him by focusing one hundred percent on rehab. Now what will I do? My knee is as healed as it’s going to get and the light on my career has blown out. I’m floundering, completely lost. I need him now, but I can’t have him. He’s getting married. He chooses now to get engaged. Not a few months from now when I’ll be well on my way to putting my life back together. He chose right now. He’s sending me a message, and I’ve received it loud and clear. He’s a cold, callous son of a bitch who not only doesn’t care for me but has the sadistic need to rub salt in my wounds.” 0 likes
