Dear Isaiah,

Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you a free pancake and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.

But you did notice.

We spent one life-changing week together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last minute.

I give up on this New Age, New Adult, Contemporary romance crap! OMG!

I'm only giving this book 2 stars (reduced to 1 bc I'm MAD!) because it kept me interested enough to read the first chapter, despite the H being a douche bag for no reason, and the h being a horny pleaser bc she finds him attractive and uses every opportunity to touch his shoulders. The guy giving you a back-the-fuck-off-I-hate-you-vibe not come across clear enough????

Chapter 2 I read to see if I'd like the guy any better from
P.S. I Hate You was such a cute book!! I absolutely loved Maritza and Isaiah!!

P.S. This review might have spoilers below.

Maritza, or RITZ, was so freaking sassy that I instantly fell in love with her. She didn't necessarily "date" guys. No, she was friends with them. I mean she kissed those said friends every now and then however she was pretty clear about the no relationship or dating thing. Except for Isaiah. Yes she still called them friends but you could just tell that they both felt that t

First time reading this author...

Picked it out on a whim...

I liked the first half of the book...

But then smth clicked wrong and the other half of the book (inspite of the 'twist') felt a bit flat and kinda 'sped up' so yada yada yada, so they could have a HEA...

I liked the main character Isaiah Torres but the heroine was annoyingly chirppy 😕 and falsly sassy, if there is smth like but whatever...I can't even place it under a strict genre or a sub-genre...

I mean it's romance alright bu

2.5 - You only had one shot… Stars.

My first read by this author, is what I would describe as an opportunity missed. I pre-ordered this one for two reasons; the intriguing blurb, and the ridiculously low price (bearing in mind two other of the authors titles were included). I had medium hopes that it would be a winner after seeing a long list of bloggers raving about how marvelous P. S. I Hate You was. Once again I find myself either; reading something completely different to those that score

I for one am EXTREMELY happy that she had sex with the OM and tried moving on.
That’s exactly what she needed to do and he only had himself to blame for it.

However, the actual reason I refuse to read this is because he realises he’s in love with her because he almost dies?? Yeah, right. You got to be fucking kidding me.

There’s apparently literally would have been NO reconciliation from his side if he didn’t almost die.

Call that adrenaline rush, call that gratitude towards new life, or call it gu

This was my first book by Winter Renshaw and I found it so cute. As I didn't know her, I didn't know what to expect, but I loved the cover and the synopsis and wanted to get to know her work. I'm glad I did it. She has a light, and fluid writing that is very nice to read. The story had a drama, a pinch of comedy and a it was a gradual romance that make us end up wanting a love like that.

Isaiah and Maritza didn't like each other at first sight. She is very cheerful
Loved this book! (view spoiler) ...more

Fatal Attraction?

So here's another case of the synopsis being great, but the full story falling flat.
I liked the Maritza we got in the first few pages, she was so normal. What we get after that is a pushy, you're going to love me or I'm going to boil your bunny in a pot crazy person. Who falls for a guy that is being a jerk to you?!
The girl pushed herself on this guy, she got pissed of he didn't want to spend his every day before deployment with just her.

For such a strange title this is a wonderful book. I loved Isaiah as soon as he wanted another pancake. I felt bad when his car was hot and I hated him when he stopped writing. But then I simply loved him. This is a great read. Don't let the name confuse you.
First of all, let's please acknowledge this absolutely stunning cover. It's just breathtaking. I'm in love with it!
Second, this was the first US book I read that has a Brazilian character. I loved it. When I saw Isaiah's mom talking in Portuguese I had the biggest smile on my face. It's so cool! Thanks for the honor, Winter.

Now, moving on...
This story got me from the start. I really enjoyed Maritza smart and witty sense of humor and the coldness from Isaiah. Their interactions got me curious fro

I’m not certain why this book doesn’t have a better rating it is absolutely worth a 4 Star rating and more!!!

Maritza is a saucy waitress at a popular pancake house/diner. She is working one day when she has the unpleasant experience of waiting on Isaiah. He is being a complete jerk but the fact that he is military has her going the extra mile for him.

After another chance encounter they decide to hang out as friends. Both are very adamant that they are not wanting any kind of real

It was another fantastic read from one of my favorite author Winter Renshaw. The way she wrote P.S. I Hate You, it will make you smile, swoon, it's a feel-good story with a twist towards the end you'll either love it or hate it? When well-written characters and unique plotlines are combined you've got yourself a good book. I devoured this in one sitting. I just can't put it down. If you haven't read a book by this author, I greatly recommend this one. Happy reading!

Maritza Claiborne is a waitress at Brentwood Pancake and Coffee; one day while slinging pancakes, Corporal Isaiah Torres takes a seat in her section...and he's so rude. Their first meeting is nothing worthy of a repeat, but when Maritza runs into Isaiah later they find the smallest bit of common ground and end up spending the rest of Isaiah's leave together.

Maritza is very bubbly. She's a positive girl who's embracing new experiences and enjoying being single in LA. She has no intention

Miserable a-hole, Isaiah, is home for nine days before he’s set to deploy to the Middle East, again. Maritza is a perpetually happy, outgoing kind of girl until she gets saddled with serving Isaiah at the restaurant where she works. He’s rude. He’s mean. He’s demanding. He’s a great tipper. And Maritza hopes to never see him again. Too bad it’s only hours before they run into each other again, and Isaiah is even more of a douche to her than at first. Isaiah feels just a tiny bit bad about how he ...more

Having read several books by this author so far I knew what kind of writing I would most probably find when I choose to read PS I HATE YOU by Winter Renshaw. But on the other hand my ratings for her books are about as diversely as her plotlines. Because she never quite writes a plotline like the general, reader would suspect it. Which is good and bad depending what the plotline was.

Before going in, I thought I knew how this book would go, but the author took every expectation I had and blew it out of the water with every page that i read. This is the third book I've read by the author and each and every one has been an easy to read, captivating read that I couldn't put down.

Before going in I thought I knew what I’d be reading but the author took my expectations and surprised me.

Despite the title I thought this book was a fun read it’s not at all hate filled. Maritza was fun and quirky with a tender vulnerable heart. Isaiah is the gruff damaged military man but we as the reader see his tender side.

I’m a sucker for the strong silent type throw in the military element and I’m sold. The letters between them were just perfect the slow build of their friendship was jus

Winter Renshaw has done it again and the “it” is P.S. I HATE YOU, her latest book. I have to say, the cover is deliciously hot and beautifully done. I loved the cast of characters and found myself drawn in immediately.

P.S. I Hate You was the first book in the PS series by Winter Renshaw. It was also my first book by the author but definitely won’t be my last.

Maritza “Maritza the Waitress” Claiborne was a flighty, care free, easy going, always positive waitress / sometimes student that was trying to find what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Isaiah “Corporal” Torres was a standoffish, guarded, brooding military man that cared for his sick mother while he was on leave. He was a straight shooter and wa

P.S. I Hate You is a cute, sexy read. Coming from Winter, I expected something darker, but thankfully, it stayed mostly on the light side. Oh sure, it's got some angsty moments, but nothing OTT or ridiculous. And of course it's sexy with interesting characters.

Maritza is the granddaughter of a true Hollywood legend who's living her life but not knowing where she wants her life to go, when she meets a soldier at the diner where she waitresses. He's a grumpy patron, not liking the diner's rule of

Maritza was annoying in her 'I'm not letting you explain anything' behaviour, she is angry first and thinks second or rather believes a stranger over the person she says she cares for. 😒 Why!? What's so hard in letting another person speak his side of the story? But no, not Miss Perfect and Miss I-know-it-all!

And there is cheating in the 'romance world' sense. They aren't in an relationship, but slept together and developed feelings when Maritza has kind of a ONS with a guy who is inter

First half of this book I thought so bad about H. Such a jerk, such an asshole. ... You name it!
But later I got this thing about the twist and I was right.
The heroine was good strong girl. I liked her a lot. She didn't give a shot with H assholeness.
She just followed her heart.
Cannot wait the cousin's story.
