It took me a while to get into this story, the physics and toxicity that surrounded the main characters had a very cold demeanour. I couldn’t connect with them as much as I wanted to.

For me, the author went too far with their banter and strategies to manipulate each other to the point that tired me. Up to 50% I had reached my limits and dnf it...

This is definitely the case of “it’s me and not the book”, the story was very well written, the characters were strong and determined and their banter

I received an arc for a honest review.

4.5 Stars. I was so excited when Harloe announced that she's writing an office romance, enemies to lovers. I love her books so much so I couldn't wait for it. Those banters was EVERYTHING!!! It got me laughing!!

Landon and Vannah was literally at each other's throat throughout almost more than half of the book. They're both good at what they do in their profession. Not willing to bow down to each other. Landon was looking to buy land in Minneapolis, and Vann

Absolutely loved! I couldn’t put this book down! Vannah is super funny and quick on her hilarious comebacks when dealing with Landon and his boorish ways. They have a love/hate relationship (more hate than love) that just makes their story all the intriguing as it unfolds.

The hate is fierce in this enemies-to-lovers office romance! Vannah and Landon will make sparks fly as their hate transforms into a sizzling connection. You are going to LOVE hating him!

Vannah is young, successful, and driven in her career. She's assigned a new client that could put her right where she wants to be. However, she never anticipated him. That man that she briefly met at a wedding, who pushed her every button (and not in the good way), is her new client. Her goal just got a whole lot

Really enjoyed this!! I think Harloe does enemies to lovers exceptionally, and they literally always become my favorite books of hers.

The only reason for my 4 star instead of 5, is because I wish the heroine was just a bit more professional at times with the hero, especially because of how successful she is, I just thought she should be able to handle her emotions a bit better. Also, I think the growth for the hero happened a little too late and quick and I wish it was expanded on a bit more on

By far my favorite Harloe Rae book!
I have had the pleasure of reading every single Harloe Rae works and loved every one of them.
Something like Hate is now my favorite. Snarky banter hade me laughing out loud while the story had me turning page after page.
If your new to Harlow, don’t miss a single one and I hope you enjoy this one as much as I have.

This book is so angsty and full of so much heat I loved every word! The wit and quick barbs from the hero and heroine where hilarious and kept me intrigued!

Vannah and Landon are quick witted enemies almost instantly but they both need each other for work purposes! Both with alternative motives they dive into a work relationship that implodes to more! I loved the fire inside Vannah and her take no crap attitude! It’s that attitude that lures Landon in but does the broody man have it in him to be

Wow. Just wow. Harloe Rae has delivered another work of art with Something Like Hate.

Landon and Vannah are fire and ice that will set your kindle ablaze. These two are the epitome of everything I love about an enemies to lovers, banter filled romance.

Harloes attention to detail has you right there in the pages as though your living and breathing in the world she created. Each turn of the page has you feeling all the emotions from pure joy and laughter to wanting to ball your eyes out.

Sexy and intense

The hate is PALPABLE in this enemies to lovers romance, with so much snarky banter that you'll need to be fully caffeinated in order to keep up. I was wholly unprepared for the level of sexual tension - I loved the amount of dialogue and the sizzling chemistry, which absolutely jumped off the page. These two have a connection from the moment they meet, and it is hate and lust ever after. The only problem? The love wasn't nearly as convincing. One of my favorite things about enem

I truly love the enemies-to-lovers trope and was so happy to be approved to receive a copy of an ARC.
This is the first book I've read by Harloe Rae, but I have to admit, it took me a while to get used to her writing voice.

I really liked the premise of the story, but the banter between the protagonists was just so toxic, I thought I was going to lose a part of my soul just reading the schemes and lengths the characters were willing to go to in order to one-up t

What a scorching hot, wild ride Ms. Rae takes us on. Something Like Hate is a MUST read book. The dynamic between Landon and Vannah will have you burning through the pages. Their chemistry is hawt, their hate for each other is refreshing.

I've always loved Rae's broody and damaged Heros, but hot dang, her villains are something else. Landon effectively made me want to punch him in his too handsome face, and love all up on him at the same time. Gosh, he is such a brash, unapologetic, egotistical

A broody billionaire stomps into a commercial real estate office and gets more than he bargains for.
Much more.
He didn’t expect the sass and wit of Vannah Simons.
Silly, Landon.
This girl eats surly alphaholes for breakfast.

Sweet, sassy and scorching, Something Like Hate is a wild ride.

With an intense chemistry and quick rapport, the dynamic between Vanna and Landon is enough to set the page on fire. Vanna is the ultimate boss b*tch and my new girl-crush with her powerful snark and take-no-prisoners attitude. Landon's brash and abrasive personality made me want to punch him in the junk and kiss him simultaneously. This book is a battle fought and won and a hard earned victory and Vanna is definitely right - a refor

“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but I’ve never been a good liar.” “Wow, okay.” I drop my arm. “That’s how it is?”

Harloe Rae is a new author to me. I love the enemies to lovers trope and this book sure excelled in it. The animosity and constant fights to win between Landon & Vannah were entertaining. They hated each other but they were also attracted towards each other and that's what made them land into a dangerous predicament. Both of them had strong personalities and

5 stars for Landon and Vannah

Nothing I love better than an alphahole and a strong woman who knocks him on his rear. As Enemies to Lovers go, these two are snarky and full of laugh out loud banter. I couldn't get enough of Landon and Vannah. Their chemistry is so passionate because of all the emotions these two bring out in each other. 5 stars for sure. Highly recommended!

2.5-3 ⭐'s

To be honest, I never thought these two would fall in love. They were so hateful to each other and always plotting the other's demise. So much so, that I had a hard time getting into the story and to finish reading it.

Then...there was a little glimmer but even with that, it was hard to have much hope.

Thankfully, the ending was sweet. I just think the "enemies" part went on for too long and was too strong.

Harloe Rae is a new to me author whom I’ve never read before. This book is an enemies to lovers, which is a favorite trope of mine. There was no major drama and there were fun sarcastic moments between the two MCs.

I completely fell in love with these two along their bickering and back and forth. Vannah and Logan are just perfect together. The connection they share moves past all boundaries as it delves into the realm of soulmates. If you're into enemies-to-lover's romance, definitely pick this

SOMETHING LIKE HATE by Harloe Rae is the story of Landon Winters and Vannah Simons.
Landon is a harsh man who of course is well off. Vannah is a career goal women who has been assigned to help Landon find real estate. This sale can help Vannah career so she can't really fail but Landon is making her job really hard with his attitude. Vannah had first met Landon at a wedding now they are supposed to work together to find what he is looking for.

Harloe Rae is the Queen of Enemies to Lovers Romance!

Lannie was absolutely the most infuriating man, Vannah was the perfect character to bring him to his knees.

Their love hate was amazing, their banter was even better! I highly recommend you read any and all things Harloe, this is absolutely my favorite by her thus far!

If I thought Rae's heroes were the bomb, I’ve never been more wrong. Her villainous hero, Landon Winters, is a nuclear explosion that decimates the reader's heart, and I’ll never be the same!

Something Like Hate was heavy on the enemies aspect, but that lead to some fantastic banter and I couldn’t get enough of it! The sparks were flying between Landon and Vannah the second they first met and those sparks only grew as the spent more time together.

There is no shortage of chemistry between Landon and Vannah throughout any of the story. Landon is somewhat ruthless, he is focused on his career, relationships aren’t his thing. When it comes to love he has been burned in the past and that

Landon and Vannah were enemies to lovers perfection.

Feisty, bold, unapologetic: Vannah was a boss! Her wit and sass instantly hooked me.
Landon’s cold, callous and brash demeanour had me wondering if there would be light at the end of the tunnel.

The way these two battled, verbally sparred and then morphed into something more was amazing to read. Don’t get me wrong, the chemistry and attraction was there, but I stayed for the banter.

The icing on the cake was seeing that underneath his rough exteri
