    Ugh. He’s a sparkly, sexy unicorn. And everyone wants to ride him.

    I Hate You, by Ilsa Madden-Mills, is a college sports romance with an emotional pull that will make even the blackest of hearts clench. Yes it’s a love/hate relationship at its base, but it feels like much more than that because of the back stories and you can really feel that these two characters do want each other.

    Charisma is the smart and sassy girl who just doesn’t think love is for her. She knows love can break you, and she

    He’s everything. He’s everything I never knew I wanted. He’s perfection wrapped in a dark, deep lake, and I ache to swim in those waters, to discover his secrets and let him delve into mine.







    ”I HATE YOU”, the latest by Ilsa Madden-Mills, has a couple of my favorite tropes—enemies-to-lovers, and second chance romance. Blaze Townsend is the hotshot wide receiver of Waylon University’s football team. He’s got endless amounts of jersey chasers tr

    I loved I Hate You very much! It was everything I expect and want from an Ilsa Madden-Mills novel. It was emotional, hot, funny, addictive and raw. All the characters (and animal) are superb and loveable. I felt for Charisma and Blaze sometimes. I was rooting for them to get an happily ever after together and the ending was so beautiful and perfect.

    Blaze is sporty, determined, driven, popular and a little distant. He’s a football player. Football is everything to him. He wants to go pro and prov

    Binged this in one session. Absolutely loved it! The kind of story that meant my family got toasted cheese sandwiches for dinner & I have no remorse.

    Blaze is so beautifully broken by his past and Charisma drops into his life with her list of rules and her own baggage - what could go wrong? Together they’re a hot mess of emotions and I fell for them hard. I flip flopped between wanting to hug them & throttle them!

    This one had me smiling, sniffling & ranting at different points. Thes

    Blaze and football. Oh then there's Charm

    She says she hates him. But does she really. They went out a few time slept together. But she has rules. He didn't like them. So they broke up. Only thing is he says they weren't dating. 3 months have come and gone. She gets to hide... Charm is not hiding anymore. I loved this book. Third one in this series and simply amazing. Hot Alfa men football players and an amazing author.

    I have no hate for this book because I freaking loved it!

    There is a fine line between love and hate. Blaze is everything that follows that path. He’s everything Charisma isn’t. They were a thing, so why did the break up hurt?

    Blaze publicly dumped Charisma. Now she doesn’t want to face him. He’s perfect and that’s part of the problem. He’s a football star and more. She’s a sassy chick with a hell of a fire.

    Both are scared to love. Neither want to put trust in another person.

    I am starting to shy away a little from college aged romances - nothing against the books, it is just that I am an old fart and it is a bit pervy lusting after 21 year old boys lol

    Also, I know nothing about American football - other than it takes about 42 hours to play a game!

    However, there are some authors that I will pick up no matter the age of the characters, and Ilsa Madden-Mills is one of them.

    I Hate You has been my favourite of the HookUp series so far. I felt it was more relatable, more

    Ilsa Madden Mills is a master of her craft. She writes these tantalising reads with heroes we love to hate and heroines with sassy attitudes. I Hate You is the book I’ve been dying to read since I met Blaze & Charisma in I Bet You. This enemies to lovers read will set your heart on fire at times. It has witty banter, push and pull moments and yummy steam in spades.

    When it comes to sports romances, Ilsa Madden-Mills never disappoints. I Hate You is a college sports romance with a love/hate relationship that’s so much more. I was so pleasantly entertained, and immediately hooked from start to finish.

    Charisma is smart, funny, and feisty. She wants to start the new semester fresh and put the very public breakup that happened during her party behind her. She wants to get back to the person she was before Blaze got his hands on her. There’s a reason why

    Gahhhhhhh! I couldn't hate them less! Charisma and Blaze with their unforgettable names and their story of hate. Sigh! I'm in complete mushy, sappy romance lovers heaven. You see, this chick, is a friends/lovers to enemies deviant! It's true. I devour them with a ruthless greed. I relish in them and gleefully pluck them from my TBR faster than other tropes (okay, except for stepbrother romances). I am an addict with no hopes or wants to reform.

Intermingled with blunders and misunderstandings, I was completely committed to seeing these two end up together but never having any idea if they w ...more

    I loved the fact that this was a second chance/ enemies to lovers romance. And it's Charisma's book. I had been waiting for this. I was so excited to be inside her mind. She is legit awesome. I so loved her and her badassery. Watching her pine for Blaze was heartbreak

    The ending ruined the entire book, save yourself the time

    Seriously. I do not get it. This would have been a decent book. There were things that I didn’t love about the male main character, but I with the right ending I would have considered it a 3 or 4 star read at least. That is, if not for the epilogue. His big romantic speech (to win her back) about his faults and finally being able to say the “I love you” that she needed to hear was completely ruined by the epilogue. It doesn’t tell you wha
