Nikki has seriously knocked it out of the park with this one!! I absolutely loved it!! This is different from her usual reads but its my favourite of hers to date which says a lot as I love her romcoms.
Once I started this I was completely hooked from the very hard beginning right through to the absolutely phenomenal cliffhanger that left my jaw on the floor!!!

It starts with a powerful opener, one that certainly grabbed my attention. Sarah is a survivor; a gutsy character who is so likeable. Horrific past events has shaped who she is now and she is certainly not going to put up with the antics of mean boy, Adam who plagues her life from the moment she steps into her new school.

What just happened? I had no idea this had a cliffhanger, I’m reading along and BAM! No! And I loved it!
Sarah and Adam are great characters, they are both broken teenagers just trying to survive. She’s the new girl, he’s the school king. The bully. And now he’s set his eyes on her.
This is a great read. I’ve never read this author before and I’m real excited to read more from her. Especially this next book. I gotta know what happened.
I have to admit that I love a good enemies-to-lovers book. Throw in some angsty drama, a little bad boy reformation, and then end it on a good "WHAT THE F JUST HAPPENED?", and I'm all in. This one had me. I can't wait to find out what happens next to Sarah and what side of everything Adam will fall. Definitely needs to be added to your TBR. (Review by Terrie "Jane")

review by Raychel
Ah this book! I was crying straight from the prologue. This book tackles some hard topics but it does it beautifully. The way everything comes together, the way the relationship builds, the way they overcome issues together. I really love this story, and the shock I had at the end was something I never ever expected. I seriously can't wait for book 2
But diving into Love Stuck made me remember why I was so taken by this author's writing. It's truly outstanding, flawless and had me spellbound from the beginning right to the end, and I am going to make sure I start reading more of her books and soon!
This is book one in Maddison High series ...more

* First time reading this author
So Hate Struck is a bully story that is in a high school genre. It has a tragic beginning and some major issues during the whole story. Nikki doesn't hold back with major issues like rape, female issues, and how teenage boys harass girls. At some points during this book, I wanted to go through it and smack the crap out of Adam.
Sarah is an emotional scared girl that has just started at the school Adam's rules' and all she wants to do is finish school and move on. ...more
Sarah and Alex Jace two very different but equally sad lives. My heart broke for Sarah with what had happened to her and what she has to overcome. As for Alex I was not a fan initially but that changed quickly as I got more into his journey.
Nikki Ashton has written a tremendous, deep and powerful story ...more
