“Hunt,” Gabby greeted briskly.
It was clear by her tone she meant Hunt with a C.
“You promised,” Amy warned.
“What?” Gabby asked innocently. “Happy Birthday, Hunt.”
“Thanks, Gobby.”
Christian smiled at the twitch above her right eye, knowing he had scored another blow. He hated the way she called him Hunt. Everyone knew what she was really calling him. What bugged him the most was that over the years, she had somehow managed to make him hate his own last name.
He couldn’t stand Gabriella King.

This is a great enemies to lovers fun, dirty, steamy read which is intended for 18+ readers.

King & Hunt: A Lust/Hate Story was a great 5 star read.

Gabriella is at her besties birthday party and is surprised when she finds out that Christian was in town for the party. Christian is her bestie’s twin brother and he hates her. These two have never gotten along, even when they were all still in high school. I would say him and his buddies were downright cruel.

They both agree to try and get along while at the celebration. When she has had her fill and decides to head to her hotel room,

King & Hunt: A Lust/Hate Story is a great novella from Brienne Dubh. I had never previously read any of this author’s work but Brienne Dubh sure packs a lot into this 136 page novella.

King & Hunt: A Lust/Hate Story by Brienne Dubh is my first time reading anything of hers and I have to say I went in blindly solely based off the cover and quick blurb. I do love the cover, it's bright and simple design is absolutely eye catching. I am glad I gave this a go as it was a fun and quirky read for me. I found myself laughing out loud at several moments and was sincerely wrapped up in the beautiful disaster that is Christian and Gabriella.

This book is one mind-spinning tale of love (or lack thereof) and hate. It revolves around main characters Christian Holt and Gabriella King who’ve been rivals for years. Every time they’d see one another, they’d remind one another of their dislikes for the other. During a temporary truce, an unexpected rendezvous leads to more than each bargained for. You find yourself wanting these characters to go all the way because once they’re together, their story becomes that much better. It left me ...more

Four Stars

I love a good love/hate story. Gabby and Hunt can not stand each other. But once they get that first sinful taste all bets are off. You can’t continue to hate someone you’re falling in love with. I didn’t understand why they hated each other. It was simply miscommunication. Instead of verbalizing what the issue was they continued to be nasty to each other. Not caring how their relationship was affecting

A short and steamy read is how the author describes this book and I 100% agree! I absolutely loved everything about this book! It was a great example of an enemies to lovers story – a genre I really like! There was definitely some hatred between the two characters, Christian and Gabriella but there was also a lot of chemistry and lust! I loved reading about them, the banter between them, the flying insults but once that truce between them

King and Hunt: A Lust/Hate story by Brienne Dubh is a quick paced novella that is a brilliant way to pass an afternoon.
Brienne Dubh is a new author to me and I have to say this was a great way to discover her work. Although it is a short story - roughly 100 pages or so - it is a complete story with great, interesting characters and a steamy story. I found myself highly entertained throughout the book and loved the way Christian and Gabrielle interacted with each other.

So Hot!! The chemistry is there from the very first page of the book. Gabriella King is a smart, witty, sarcastic woman who knows what she likes, and who she doesn’t like. Christian Hunt, well hes just smoking hot and sexy, and gives as good as he gets. He is also not afraid to go after what he wants and has the determination to get it. This story pulled me in from page one, and it just got hotter and steamier from there. It made me laugh a few times, and turn the fan on high others. It gets ...more

King & Hunt: A Lust/Hate Story by Brienne Dubh is a fast lusty read. This story clocks in at just over 100 pages and devoured in one sitting. I was drawn in by the title and stayed for the characters, Christian and Gabriella. The two of them have hated each other as long as they can remember but also are drawn to each other. This story is filled with funny quips between them and goes from hate to love. Can the two survive their truce or deepest feelings for one another? The characters are ...more

King & Hunt: A Lust / Hate Story By Brienne Dubh is a short yet quick read that once I started reading I couldn’t put it down and finished it in about an hour. This is my first read by this Author and definitely will not be my last. The characters are very well developed and easily relatable. Theres enough steamy scenes to make the room feel warmer. Christian and Gabby have pretty much hated each other forever but one Birthday party and a ex boyfriend and things get cleared up and hot

Well, Thank you Brienne Dubh!

For one thing, I love the simplicity of the cover yet it draws you in! I absolutely loved this read, from beginning to end. This read had humour, romance, steaminess , it had me laughing out loud and had me grinning from ear to ear. For this being a quick read it didn’t lack in anything it was fast-paced, easy to read and brilliant from start to finish.
This author has created an epic storyline two incredible characters that I couldn’t help but love everything about
Gabby and Hunt fit the classic adage, love to hate you. Their hate relationship started with a bang and continued. It continues to escalate over the years and carries over to the people around them. There's just something about Gabby that makes Hunt want to boss her around and be snippy. Gabby is strong-willed and won't be anyone's errand girl. They end up calling a truce which leads to figure out there is more than the hatred between them. Lust begins where the hate ends, leaving them wanting a ...more

This novella was quick to read and very entertaining. I love the idea of a hate turned love relationship and the author did a great job of describing the couples raw sexual chemistry. I only wish it could’ve been a full length novel. It was nice to see that 2 people that despised each other could connect once they stop playing games and are honest about why they always acted the way they did.

Gabby King has hated her best friend’s twin brother from the first day they meet due to a misunderstanding. Christian King thought his sister’s friend was just an annoying loudmouth who didn’t know how to keep her opinions to herself. But all it took was a night of drinking, honest conversation and a fake kiss to change things. Will this be a one-night thing or will they take their intense chemistry to another level?

King and Hunt by Brienne Dubh is an enemy to lovers story. This book is a novella so it’s a quick read but it’s steamy and so worth it!

Gabriella and Christian have always hated each other. They certainly aren’t afraid to let each other know just how deep the hate goes. They call a truce temporarily but don’t expect that the hate they’ve always had doesn’t come back as easily as they would have thought. What happens with their relationship if lines are crossed?

This was my first experience with this author. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Overall, it was a decent read. I was a bit disappointed that the initial heated friction between the two main characters was over fairly quickly. However, the way the last part of the story played out kind of made up for it. This is definitely set up as more of a short story feel. I finished it fairly quickly. This book would be a great read if you are waiting somewhere and need a distraction.

This was a true lust/ hate story, the chemistry between Chriatian and Gabby was crazy from the moment we met them. They hated each other with a strong passion and only played nice as a favor to his sister Amy who also happens to be her best friend. Neither of them realized this was the beginning of a new phase.

Brienne has done it again! Her books have a way of finding the fantasies I never even knew I had and bringing them fully into the spotlight. What I really loved about this book, was not just the hotness of the sex scenes, but also the realness of the story. I know I’ve had that friend of my brother who drove me insane, in more than one way. It makes you think back to the ‘what if?’

I'm new to this author but I'm completely hooked! I loved reading this hate/lust story and I haven't ever read anything like it. Gabriella is a completely sassy character who I just loved reading and Christian can totally sling it right back to her. When a temporary truce is made and a gesture they didn't se coming, all of a sudden both are questioning themselves and their beliefs towards one another.

I completely loved the banter between the two characters. They kept me on the edge of my seat
