This seems to be a trend in last couple of decades not just in fiction but real life too. People being given last names as first names, called after place names/inanimate objects/verbs and adjectives etc(less)

Hes everything. Hes everything I never knew I wanted. Hes 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 tropesenemies-to-lovers, and second chance romance. Blaze Townsend is the hotshot wide receiver of Waylon Universitys football team. Hes got endless amounts of jersey chasers trying to

Ugh. Hes 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 its 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 doesnt think love is for her. She knows love can break you, and she

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. Hes a football player. Football is everything to him. He wants to go pro and prove

Overall Opinion: Wow! I went in thinking this was going to be another case of my expectations getting me because of my weakness for college athlete stories, but no! My low expectations were in my favor this time! Definitely the best of the 3 in this series so far (not listed as series but same characters and setting)! It tapped into my feels, it had complex characters, great chemistry in and out of bed between the characters, and some alright closure! I liked it! It could've had more

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 theyre 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. These

For some reason, I could just not connect with the heroine. I understood how her parents' relationship had a certain effect on her, but the "no kissing" rule reminded me way too much about the whole "Pretty Woman" deal. Not my jam and a bit ridiculous if you ask me.

She also kept whining about all the "jersey chasers" that were surrounding him, but then went on a date behind his back with some other guy, knowing he wanted to spend time with her. I don't like it when a man plays with a woman's

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.

But every time he looks her way, her body reacts. When she reads his notes her mind wanders. But can she find a way to forgive him after he publically dumped her?

Pfft... Like Ilsa Madden-Mills could write a bad book.

When it comes to sports romance, she has definitely become one of the go-to authors for lovers of this genre.
Like always, Ilsa Madden-Mills has given us yet another awesome read. I Hate You is fun, sexy and such an entertaining read.

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. Hes everything Charisma isnt. They were a thing, so why did the break up hurt?

Blaze publicly dumped Charisma. Now she doesnt want to face him. Hes perfect and thats part of the problem. Hes a football star and more. Shes a sassy chick with a hell of a fire.

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

I have enjoyed Ilsa Madden-Mills' sassy and compelling stories since she began writing and I Hate You was no different. It was an amazing sports romance filled with spitfire banter and hot and steamy sexy times that she is known for. Blaze and Charisma were just delicious and their draw and connection to one another was palpable and felt right off their pages.  But while I enjoyed their spirited back and forth exchanges, I couldn't help but notice that their emotional and painful baggage from ...more

First of all, thank you for recommending me this book Jade! It was a delight reading it.
I loved the Hero and Heroine in this novel!
Blaze had a rough life growing up. Hes all he has so when he meets Charisma and he feels himself getting deeper. He freaked out and told her in front of everyone at the party she isnt his type.
Yikes.

Charisma is soooooo funny. I loved her. Shes so badass. She also has these rules. No kissing and no sleeping over. After seeing her father sucking faces with her sixth

This author is usually a miss for me but color me surprised that I absolutely loved this story. Like really loved it. The h and H were characters that I connected with and their chemistry is the best.

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

I Hate You is a cute and funny enemies to lovers romance. Charisma and Blaze are two terrific characters that I enjoyed being in the company of. The beginning of the story, where the enemy vibes was at its highest, worked the best for me. The dialogue between them spot on along with the sexual tension. Theyre both insecure, because of their parents actions when theyre young, and doesnt give their hearts away easily to anyone. Thats ultimately why Blaze ended their relationship the first time ...more

Ilsa Madden-Mills has explored and put under a magnifying glass the World of College, Sport and New Age Angst with her interconnected books. She has brought us truly interesting, multi-layered characters whose flaws endear us and make us want to root for them. In I Hate You, she has taken two people who have no trust in others due to their childhood observations in their families.

Well, I'm doing this completely ass backwards. I started with the first in the series, I Dare You but then the author had the first chapter of the 2nd book at the back and of course I read it which led to my instant gratification kicking in and I jumped to #2 without reviewing #1. Then of course, I get to the end of the 2nd book and there's the first chapter of the 3rd and, once again - no self control, so I'm off to the races reading that one.

Thus why I'm reviewing the third in the series

When it comes to sports romances, Ilsa Madden-Mills never disappoints. I Hate You is a college sports romance with a love/hate relationship thats 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. Theres a reason why

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 by Ilsa Madden-Mills is a great steamy, frustrating book about that hot college football star and the quite girl.
It's definitely a fun read with plenty of hot flirty-ness, and full of emotion with that happy ever after we all want 🙄
Definitely worth reading if quick, easy and a good giggle is what you need 📖

Rating this is hard because I liked this book but the characters annoyed me so freaking much!

I Hate You, no.. really, I hate you. This book annoyed me so much - mostly the characters though. In it, you will meet Blaze and Charisma. Now he is all about football and nothing else can get in the way of that. No matter how hard he tries to forget about Charisma and her sass. Then there's the girl who can't deal with seeing her ex who publicly dumped her. She was humiliated and hurt by the words he
