Chris  C - A Midlife Wife
Beautiful story of a second chance romance. Love the title and Aish!
There’s this lady I know who used to work in the vineyards around here where I live. We have a lot of vineyards actually surrounding my area and many massive producers of wine own the vineyards.

Every so often I hear her refer to specific terms and one of them was the crush. Because of the name in the word you can get a feel for what it means. This author transformed the meaning of a word into full, meaningful

I have a bone to pick with Ms Lopez: Hate Crush kept me up two work nights in a row. Harrumph. And I need my sleep, so kudos and curse you, Lopez, for writing this unputdownable thing. I loved Lopez’s Filthy Rich début, Lush Money, but I loved Hate Crush even more. The two carry my favourite romance tropes: marriage-of-convenience in the former and second-chance, in the latter. In Ms Lopez’s hands, the tropes dance and sing and come alive. Her characters are MESSY, visceral, intense, their confl ...more

“Tell me you don’t want to feel it again,” he said, his black eyes beckoning. “Tell me you don’t want to know if it’s as good as we remember.” She scraped her teeth against her lip. “I’m afraid it’s going to be better.”

The second in the Filthy Rich series tells the story of Princess Sofia and rock star Aish Salinger. He's waited 10 years to win her back but she's only willing to fake a relationship with the bad boy of rock to promote her new winery and win over her people and save their way of life.

This story was emotional and HOT. Strong-willed and brilliant, Sofia needs to learn to let down her guard and let love back in. Aish needs to grow up and become the man she'd always hoped he'd become. And they both

Let me start by saying that I loved the first book in this series, Lush Money. That book also introduced us to the heroine in this book. Princess Sofia, the younger sister of Prince Mateo, the hero of the first book. I knew going into this book that it was a second chance romance, which is one of my very favorite tropes and I had high hopes that it would also be a grovel novel.

So, let's start with what worked for me. I am a heroine-centric reader and I adored the heroine in this book. I have a

I finished this book over a month ago, marked it as read, but I just have not had the inclination to right any kind of reviews lately. The main thing I remember most about this book... it's one of the last ones I remember reading that I could not put down. It had me up late at night and rushing through it as quickly as possible. The first book in the series was a standout debut for me last year, turning a trope sideways, but it was little hints at what this story could be that had me hitting the ...more

I was anxiously awaiting this title and so it’s absurd that my ARC review is late, but, alas, 2020 is a beast. Overall, I really loved this fake dating, second chance book with one caveat: there is a scene in here that is described as consensual but feels really not great. I know many people had an issue with consent or lack thereof in the last book and it’s really interesting because through so much of this book consent is emphasized. But then there’s this one scene that’s just mean. So, just k ...more

Angelina M. Lopez is a new-to-me author, but I love romances that feature royalty, so I was immediately drawn to "Hate Crush" after reading the book's synopsis. I'm so happy that I took a chance and picked it up because this story was steamy, angsty escapism at its best, and I absolutely loved it.

"Hate Crush" is a refreshingly different take on a royal romance featuring a compelling, almost compulsively readable plot and incredibly complex, well-developed characters. I couldn't help losing mysel

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Hate Crush by Angelina Lopez is the second book in her Filthy Rich series. It can be read as a standalone, but I really loved the first book and highly recommend reading it too. Ten years ago, Princesa Sofia Maria Isabel De Esperanza y Santos fell in love with Aish Salinger, but he decided that being a Rock Star was more important than their relationship. He’s regretted that decision every day since, but Sofi ...more

I really enjoyed Angelina M. Lopez's debut Lush Money and the character of Sofia, so much so that I raced to check out Hate Crush immediately after.

Lopez creates incredibly complex characters in her books with very intricate backgrounds, plus she writes incredibly steamy and refreshing sex scenes. (And she even talks about STI disclosure in this one in a healthy and non-stigmatizing way!) She's quickly becoming one of my favorite new romance authors, so needless to say, I was itching to see wha

Seductive, satisfying, and dramatic!

Hate Crush is a passionate, second-chance romance featuring the sexy, infamous, rockstar Aish who’s still hopelessly in love with the one woman he let get away ten-years ago, and the intelligent, stubborn Princesa Sofia who’s willing to do whatever it takes to make her vineyard a success even fake date the one man who shattered her heart.

The writing is fluid and smooth. The characters are wounded, hardworking, and dependable. And the plot is a heartwarming tal

This second chance romance with that enemies to lovers vibe es bien telenovela in the best way possible.

When the story begins, Aish is living the typical rocker lifestyle - he’s messed up and reminiscing about Sofia, the Spanish principesa who he loved and lost ten years earlier. When international gossip conspires to bring these two back together, Sofia is all HELL NO DUDE and wants nothing to do with him, but her struggling family winery needs the positive publicity, and so does Aish, so here

Do you like second chance tropes? I admit they are a hard sell for me. I need a good solid, believable explanation as to why two people who love each other stayed away from each other for years. Often I find this explanation not believable. Unfortunately, this is the premise that Hate Crush is built on. Party Princess and Rock Star playboy had a hot and heavy affair as young kids, split up for the shittiest most douchey reason possible, and then are forced back together ten years later when they ...more

Grab a glass of wine and dive into this contemporary romance set in a wine-growing region in Northern Spain. Hate Crush is the second book in the Filthy Rich series. The female protagonist is Princess Sofia (Princesa Sofia Maria Isabel de Esperanza y Santos) and the male protagonist is Aish Salinger. Aish and Sofia met each other working at his uncle’s winery in California. They hit it off right away and had a pretty steamy summer romance. The present-day part of the story is a second chance rom ...more

She is back home trying to revive not only her family’s dynasty in the wine business but also the wine industry in her entire village.

This book had everything I love in a good modern romance! Rockstars, princesses, young love, second chances and all the hate and angst you could ever want! I found reading this book that I quickly fell in love with both Aish and Sofia from the start. Author Angelina M. Lopez did an amazing job layering these characters, making very relatable and real. I was definitely on team #Aishia from the get go, even knowing that they had A LOT of work to do to make this happen.

The main one is about a song which was there first hit and who it was written and about. When he answers it everyone is surprised by who he names.

There is so much to love about HATE CRUSH. A badass princess trying to prove herself and help save her kingdom with a revolutionary vineyard must rely on her ex, the sexy and selfish rock star who was her first love and who shattered her heart to achieve her goals. That right there is enough, but then Lopez goes on to layer in an angst-filled, rollercoaster ride of emotion showing there is more to the story--and to the characters--than what it appears on the surface.

HATE CRUSH by Angelina M. Lopez is book Two in the Filthy Rich Series. This is the story of Aish Salinger and Sofia Maria Isabel de Esperanza y Santos. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book. This was a great second chance at love story along with the fake relationship story line. Sofia and Aish had a past together in which Aish had messed up but now he has been waiting for his chance back into Sofia's life even if she thinks its fake. This was a page turning ...more

Highly highly recommended. You don’t see characters like these everyday - with this kind of emotional maturity and ability to own up to their mistakes.
I didn’t love the bit of melodrama at the ending but it wasn’t enough to bring down the rating for me.
I eagerly anticipate reading book 1 and book 3.

Alright, I made mention before, but let me say it again...
...for this one has language (blame the rockstar, mostly), situations (compromising to say the least), and scenes that will definitely not suit those that prefer no higher than blush worthy levels of heat.

HATE CRUSH was like the soap opera I could not stop watching. Sophia is a princess of a wine region who has long been known for her party-girl ways which don't allow people to take her seriously for what she does best- create fantastic wines. She is working on opening a winery and hotel that could rock the wine world for her innovative methods. However, the double standard here is clear- people can't take her seriously because she is a woman who also has a party-girl reputation, as if that impac ...more

Hate Crush is the second book in the Filthy Rich series, which is set in a small winegrowing principality in Northern Spain. The heroine, Princess Sofia, is the sister of the hero from the first book Lush Money. Both books portray in great details about the wine industry, from growing the vines to processing the grapes to making the fine wine. Hate Crush is about first love having a second chance, a strong princess, a wounded rock star who has groveled hard to win back the love of his life...

Princesa Sofia Maria Isabel de Esperanza y Santos, the "party princess," agrees to a fake relationship with the washed up rock star who broke her heart so many years ago. Aish Salinger has pined for Sofia for all the years they've been apart and hopes he can atone for the sins of his past.

I love Sofia, she's prickly and stubborn and determined to reach for success. I wasn't as enthralled with Aish or the rest of the romance ARC. The use of long flashback chapters also isn't always may favorite n
I was surprised by how much I've enjoyed this novel. Without the totally unnecessary suspense subplot in the last third, this would be a 5 star.

Hate Crush is the second chance romance of a wine making princess and a wine making rockstar. Both of them are flawed, both of them have serious issues to work out and both of them has a tendency toward the dramatic. They are loveable and need to wok out their teenage relationship and reconcile their realities with the impressions they've carried in the
