    After reading this gem of a book I will begin following Sajni Patel until my dying breath....this book was so much fun even when dealing with serious issues. Patel writes her characters with sass, joy, hearbreak...you name it this book has it. I cannot wait to see what she puts out next!
    When Liya's parents (mainly her asshole father) sneakily makes the family dinner (or so she thought) an arranged date with a man that could possibly become her husband, Liya runs out the back door and escapes.

    Sassy, emotive, and sweetly romantic!

    This is so much more than a typical romcom with lots of culture and tradition, weighty, hard hitting issues, and a enemies-to-more romance that skirts it all.

    Stay tuned. Full review to follow shortly.

    There's no better feeling that seeing a book on NetGalley, getting intrigued, reading it with no outside opinions to bolster you beforehand, and falling in love with it on the spot.

    That was the magic of reading Sajni Patel's debut novel The Trouble With Hating You.

    The enemies-to-lovers storyline in this book was truly *chef's kiss* and didn't rush into things. The two main characters were wonderful and self-actualized adults who took time to sort through their problems. The fact that Liya was

    2 / 5 because it felt like too much hating, not enough loving

    Ive been enjoying a lot of Indian-inspired romcoms lately, but none so far really stuck out to me despite their tantalizing blurbs. Unfortunately, THE TROUBLE WITH HATING YOU is another miss, as I found myself disliking the book more and more until the very anticlimactic ending that wrapped the story up with a tidy bow, through randomly slapped-on dialogue. This story follows Liyas love story with Jay, a lawyer that she sees at both

    **ARC from NetGalley**
    A sweet enemies to lovers story between a feisty yet broken woman and a confident yet damaged man. The two have a rough start, for good reasons. She went through sexual assault as a teen (which the author did an excellent job of informing the reader of without it becoming triggering) while his trauma involves his dad whose last moments were saving him from a fire so he blames himself for the death and thinks he's unworthy of love. The woman is smart and can handle herself

    This enemies to lovers romance is Sajni Patels debut novel. Despite the disapproval of her Indian parents and their community, Liya, a biochemical engineer, lives on her own, dates, doesnt want to marry, and has a snarky streak a mile-wide.

    Liyas parents ambush her with dinner with a potential husband for her and his mother. Upset, Liya runs out, knocking Jay, the gorgeous would be suitor to the ground in her haste to get away.

    The twist comes when Jay is brought in to help the firm Liya works
