Okay first and foremost, this is my favorite trope. The one where the wife finds herself alone because some doucheknuckle of a man (who is supposed to love her unconditionally) finds his way into the bed of another. This one has an added layer of YUCK but makes the glow up she feels even stronger. After 26 years of my alpha ahole I always think if he is to lose his mind and stray, I might have it in me to find me a little Micah loving LOLOL but seriously, gives me hope.

I swear to you guys that Jessica Prince is a book whisperer for me. Just days before this landing on my kindle I was asking in the blog's book club for a book that featuring a woman in her 30s to 40s that's starting over and finds a delicious man to meet all of her needs. And bam I get this book.

First you should know that I adore all books that Jessica writes and I usually devour them as soon as I get them. It's a real problem that I'm totally ok with as long as she keeps giving me the goods.

Oh my, just when I didn’t think I could love the town of Hope Valley any more, Hayden’s grocery store breakdown, the reactions of everyone around her, and the lightning fast spread of its occurrence through the small town gossip chain ratcheted up my love another notch in Love to Hate You.

There’s just something about small town living—everyone knows everyone else’s business. And what happens with Hayden and Micah is no exception. Especially since they’re now living next door to each other—and Ha

I liked it, but there were times when I thought there was some drama about the hero's sexual past, but nothing came of it.

Fuck. Me. I cannot express how much I loooooove Jessica Prince and all the beautiful words and characters she creates, writes. The Hope Valley series is by far my favorite from her to date with the Pembrooke series coming in to a close, close second.

Well we have traveled back to Hope Valley this go round for Micah and his lady, one of the newest residents of this charming little town and y'all, I was here for every single addicting word.

This book literally had my heart from the prologue! I was immediately pro Hayden no matter what the outcome of the story was going to be.

After starting fresh in Hope Valley, Hayden runs into her one night stand. Only this time, he's not too happy to see her.

Micah is ALL alpha and brings out the confidence in Hayden that she's been missing.

These two together probably make for some of the hottest scenes in Hope Valley.

I can't say that enough, and I'm being repetitive: I'm crazy about this series.
After suffering a major deception from people who were supposed to love her, Hayden decides to start fresh, moving to Hope Valley with her daugther.
Hayden is a sweet, sassy woman, the mother of adorable Ivy. Even being wary and careful about her daughter and her own heart, this new life shows her that there are honest and good people out there, who will have her back no matter what. Sh

Read this book in one sitting. Love it so much.
Micah and Hayden’s story is now my favorite in this series.
After her husband left her for her best friend and a one night stand that she will never forget, Hayden is ready for her new beginnings.
Little does she knows that she meets him again in the local grocery store.
Love everything about this book. The banter between Micah and Hayden, little Ivy and Sylvia were my favorites.
The storyline with a little suspense was great.

3.75 Alpha stars. When a one night stand turns into more. If you’re looking for a hot alpha cop, single mom with the cutest kid and a suspense element, this one is for you. I really enjoy this series and it should be read in order.

When Hayden finds out her husband had been having an affair with her supposed best friend, it sets off a ripple effect within her life. Starting over in a small town where her beloved aunt lives could just be the best thing to happen to her. If the jerk who rocked her life one night weren't living there. The jerk who now seems determined to drive her crazy every time he opens his mouth.

AHHHHHHHH, this may be my favorite book in Jessica's Hope Valley series! A smokin' hot one night stand between Micah and Hayden. It's all good. Just a little fun one night. It doesn't matter they won't see each other again. Ha! Famous last words! When Hayden moves to Hope Valley to live with her aunt, she comes face to face with her hot night of sex. Except Micah is a jerk!

A one night stand turns to full-on hate. But all that chemistry they had that first night together is just simmering under t

I have only read one other book in this series however it was still easy to follow but I will be going back to read the others as they are all very interesting characters. I liked that Micah and Hayden were people who had lived and had a good range of life experiences both good and bad. It makes a change to see a group of female friends being accepting and supportive and I love the way Jessica wrote these women.

The story starts with betrayal it could have been a depressing angst heavy story but

There's something about the men and women in Hope Valley . The men either work for Alpha Omega or their detectives. The women are a circle of friends that just keeps getting bigger when someone new moves in.

I am such a huge fan of this lady, and the hope valley series is one of my absolute favorite series I have ever read, and they keep getting better and better!! This book had all the things her last few books have been missing: Their was actual spark between the characters, I could feel their love, the banter was on point, and the suspense was spot on! JP is back everyone!!!

Hayden had her life ripped apart when she found out her husband has been having an affair with her best friend, so she and

Not that I’m all that surprised, but I swear it feels like going home whenever I dive into a book from this series, or it’s spinoff, and I honestly hate having to say good-bye for now when the book is over.

I adored Hayden. She definitely gets the rug pulled out from underneath her, but I loved how she picked herself up and moved on for herself and her daughter, Ivy. She is all kinds of fiery

Gosh, I just love my visits to Hope Valley. Every time I go, I catch up with the gals I have gotten to know over these books' series. Checking up on the guys on the police force and the guys of Alpha Omega is always fun. This story is no different.

We meet Hayden as her marriage is falling apart in the worst way it can. Let it be said people can suck--plain and simple. Hayden simply has been a square peg trying to fit into a round hole her whole life, first for her parents than for her husband. I

I received a free ARC copy of this book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was such a wonderful story I absolutely adored it. It stars a new woman in town, Hayden who is newly divorced, a single mom and who is Sylvia's niece. She comes to town to run the flower shop and to escape her ex and his new woman who was once her best friend.

It also stars Micah who is a bit of a playboy and lets say when they run into each other at the grocery store after Hayden mov

I love escaping to Hope Valley! In Love To Hate You, we get to see Leo's playboy partner, Micah, fall head over heels for feisty single mom Hayden. They first meet when they have a hot one-night stand, and neither of them ever think they are going to see the other again. But neither of them have been able to stop thinking of the other ever since. Needless to say, their first run-in at the wine aisle of the grocery store doesn't go over so well.

A trip to Hope Valley is just what I needed, and who could say no to discovering more about a certain sexy cop named Micah?!

When Hayden moves to Hope Valley, she discovers the man she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about since that one night, lives there too. Their reacquaintance and lust filled hate for one another is wildly entertaining. Fighting their intense attraction by throwing insults and arguing becomes their norm. Things only get worse, or better, depending who’s looking at it, whe
