STUNNINGLY emotive, better than a fine wine, “HATE TO CRAVE YOU” is a MUST-BUY!
It is official, I am in love with the writing of Bella Love-Wins! Her name is firmly in the top 10 of the “FAVORITE AUTHORS” list, because no matter the trope, her romances are action-packed, sizzling, and emotive, with amazing characters and a prose so easy to read, I fall into the novels and do not re-appear until the last word is read. “HATE TO CRAVE YOU” is no exception to this pattern, it is WONDERFUL. While I am

This is a beautiful story about Roman and Juliana and their take on a modern day Romeo and Juliet. I absolutely loved how Roman at 11 years old takes care of Juliana at 6 when they meet in a hospital away at boarding school. They are smack dab in the middle of their families feuding that started long before they were born and are separated into different rooms after Roman over hears their fathers arguing and never finds out what happened to the girl. Years later as adults they meet again in a bo ...more

Re-Imagined Romeo and Juliet style read seems to be the theme lately.

Julianna and Roman are children of two prominent rival families who are at the top of the jewelry business. They been trying to one up each other since before each one was born. They meet and bond as children, neither one realizing that their friendship would be short lived.

Fast forward 18 years. Both are now adults facing each other on opposite sides of a board room. The sparks fly between them even as Roman a

~ Fueling the feud ~

Having met initially as mere children, Julianna Castle and Roman Montrose (check out the initials, folks, à la Romeo and Juliet) were admitted to a Swiss hospital at the same time. They were placed in isolation in the same room, where they spent time bonding in friendship. Many years later, they meet once again, but this time accompanied by their jewelry empire fathers for a business discussion, for which the dangling carrot was the purchase of a third company looking to focu

Hate To Crave You is a book that I'll always love! This is my first read book by this author, and I just simply loved it all.

This book has a story, has romance and has drama. What more could you ask for?! It is tastefully done, and towards the end this story will shock you.

Bella Love-Wins has a magic that put me under her spell with her words. I can't explain it but I just could not put it down. If I had to, it was down to force.

Roman: Seriously caught under Julianna' s spell.

The ultimate enemies to lovers story. Roman and Julianna are unwilling enemies though. Their fathers own rival jewellery businesses and are sworn enemies. Although neither of them know why since the fued has gone on longer than they've been alive. When a business deal is offered to both companies, Julianna and Roman find themselves closer than ever literally and figuratively.
I enjoyed the espionage that went on between them but it gutted me at the same time. They had something special that you

This is a modern day Romeo and Juliet story, and as Roman and Julianna’s relationship moves from enemies / lovers, the chemist between them is explosive. This is a wonderful story which is beautifully written, and is an intense, emotional, and steamy read. I have read all of this authors’ work, and I think this one is my favourite to-date. This author gives her heart and soul into her characters, and this all leads to a captivating page turner, which had me hooked and intrigued throughout. I alw ...more

OMG...that prologue...hooked me

I have to admit that prologue just drew me in. With that intriguing, steamy scene at the back of my mind, I wanted to know what happened to ruin the relationship. Wow. Ms. Love-Wins weaves a forbidden romance surrounded by the cutthroat business of the jewelry industry.

Throw in a three-decade-long feud between families, business rivals, and a sweet beginning of a young girl and boy, and you have the makings of Hate To Crave. Roman Montrose and Juliana Castle get c

A very interesting story and I loved it. Roman and Julianna are enemies in the business world, but they don't know why. Their families have been feuding for over 30 years. I loved the part where they meet randomly when they were 11 and 6 years old and they did not know each other. They are both competing for the same thing and each one is out to play the other, and they do, but who wins is surprising. The sex is hot, the story is great and the characters are in depth.

Oh mercy me did Bella do a fantastic job in writing this book. I couldnt put it down the whole time it kept me turning pages to see what hapoened next, since their families are rivalies the suspense was killing me.

This was a good read. The writing flowed well, and the characters were developed nicely. I thought that Julianna and Roman were good together, and had great chemistry. I did get annoyed at Roman when the drama started though. After everything they had been through, to automatically think Julianna was going behind his back was uncalled for. I was happy that they could work their problems out and get their HEA. The only thing I would want different would be for Roman to work things out with his fa ...more

This is an enemy to lovers’ story. Roman and Julianna are enemies but only in the eyes of their families. Both of their father’s own jewellery shops but are enemies. As there is a family feud, no one I sure what it is about and why it has gone on for so long. I was sad about the two main characters as they had so much chemistry between them, but they seemed to let business get in the way of any budding relationship. Can they get their heads together and figure out what they have before its to la ...more

It is almost like a modern day Romeo and Juliet, but it is two families that are both the top in the jewelry business, and it is so much better. This is the story of Julianna and Roman. Bella Love-Wins has worked her writing magic again. One, it is a wonderful story that pulls you into it, and you do not want to put it down. Second, the chemistry between Julianna and Roman is off the top, and it is steamy hot. I highly recommend this book.

Julianna and Roman…. their story might be the best book by Ms. Love-Wins I have read so far!

The characters felt alive and warm, human in their train of thoughts and feelings, while fighting their way through their complicated and muddled family relationships…
The plot is twisted like rarely before, thrilling like a spy thriller and explosive at times, but also hot due to the sparking chemistry between both protagonists.

I loved this story. It is an absolute must read!

It was very easy to fall for this star-crossed lovers romance. The attraction, chemistry and affection between these two is so strong, but the rivalry betwixt their families causes major obstacles and pain filled complications that firmly stand in the way of them ever getting even a shot at a HEA. A very enjoyable and entertaining read. I am posting a completely honest, voluntary review.
