" So this is what insta-lust feels like. Holy shit."
Hating to Love you is the debut by romance author Erin Rylie. It's definitely one of those feel good romances that puts a smile on your face while reading it.
"Nothing could quite compare to the smell of fresh books and fresher coffee."
Both of our leading characters have tragic back round stories. Rafe finds everything thing he's always wanted in Sophie and is ready to jump in head first, while Soph
I absolutely loved this book and couldn’t put it down. It was faced passed and emotional, keeping me at the edge of my seat. The author’s writing had the perfect combination of quirk and steam that made me devour the pages.
This couple is GOALS. Rafe is undeniably sexy, but also so sweet; the perfect combination. Sophie is such a relatable character that I could see myself coming over for wine and cult classic movie nights.
If you love a sweet & hot hero in uniform, an independent and self-dependent heroine, you're going to LOVE this one. Even better, you meet th ...more
Hating to Love You is Erin Rylie’s debut novel and I am surprisingly shocked at how much I enjoyed reading this book. It had the perfect balance of drama, comedy and steamy romance!
One of the things that took me some time to get use to with this book was the perspective the story was written in. This story is written in third person, and I am use to reading ...more
I really felt for Rafe once I read about his past. I also like how he got his name, I thought it was pretty cool. He really took me by surprise because I initially thought he was going to be a player (why wouldn’t he be.. the man is hot af) yet he was ready to settle down and start a family. Points for him!
I just want to point of that anyone who is a fan of The Greatest Showman is automatically a ...more

Well what can I say, that was one hell of a debut novel! I’ve been looking forward to reading this one since I first saw it advertised and I was not disappointed. A very enjoyable read, can’t wait for more of this series!
**THERE ARE MINOR SPOILERS ABOUT THE WRITING STYLE IN THE REVIEW**
Raphael ‘Rafe’ Pierce and Sophie Klein. Houston’s hottest cop and the sweet, gorgeous journalist. I’ve started writing this review when I was only half-way through, so I may be all over the place, I apologize in advance. But I just felt like I already had so much to say about this book! So I’m going to start anyway and see where I’ll leave it for now.
First of all, I really like ...more
One of the best romances novel I read.
Yes. This is pretty big statement. But it's true. I never felt I read a romance novel that I felt all my emotions in one sitting. I laugh, cry, threw my imaginary book at the wall, crush the book to my chest and big guffaw laugh. I was read this book in three days, each time staying up till 2 am bc I was really engaged with the story. I was really interested in ALL ...more
To be honest, I think it could have been good if the description had been changed. Based on the summary, what I was expecting was a real enemies to lovers trope with an unexpected pregnancy and dramarama. In reality, it wasn't *really* enemies to anything. They meet during an interview a ...more
Erin Rylie is a new author and this is her debut book and I'm shouting at the top of my lungs that you need to read this book! OMG this book gave me all the feels. I absolutely adored Rafe from the moment I met him. A hot cop who is sensitive, caring, doesn't like attention with a troubled past? What's not to like? The premise of this story is so cute and intriguing. It took me a moment to warm up to Sophie but after I really saw her pers ...more
Note: I've not read a romance-romance book ever, so this is my introduction to it. Meaning I don't have anything to compare it to.
This book was so sweet. I loved the quick pacing of the book, I read this in one sitting and it was so nice to just burn through this sweet little story. I found the plot to be a lot of ...more
