Contemporary Romance Review: Hate To Want You by Alisha Rai

Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai (Forbidden Hearts #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads
One night. No one will know.
That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts—and the last names that made them enemies.
Until the night she didn’t show up.
Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want . . . so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?
Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence—and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.
Being together might be against all the rules . . . but being apart is impossible.

  Gorgeous, spicy, sincere and touching. That's all you need to know about this romance to pick it up.

This was my introduction to Alisha Rai, and after reading this book I went back to her first romance. Boy, what a difference! She went from a fairly formulaic erotic novel to something absolutely magical! Hate to Want You had all my heart, peeps.

The characters were vibrant and memorable. I had no trouble imagining their personalities and rooting for them both.

The dialogue sparkled, and the reasoning behind their actions was complex and not so easy to overcome.

Add to it rich background peppered with intriguing secondary characters, and wonderful chemistry between Nicholas and Livvy, and I couldn't put this book down.

An excellent contemporary romance with a believable happy-for-now ending. Recommended.

Прекрасная, трогательная, правдивая и актуальная история с перчиком. Это все, что вам надо знать, мои хорошие, чтобы купить эту книгу.

Это был мой первый роман от Алиши Рай, и после этого я взялась за первую, изданную ею книгу и почувствовала разницу. Она шикарнейшим образом выросла от шаблонного эротического романа как писатель к какой-то волшебной сказке о трагичной любви. Просто небо и земля между двумя книгами!

Николас и Ливви были яркими, запоминающимися персонажами. Я без труда могла представить их характеры и переживала за них обоих. Их диалоги сверкали, были полны химии и притяжения, несмотря на которые причины для их разрыва и отстраненности друг от друга были вескими и многослойными.

Добавьте к этому богатое построение мира, пересыпанное интригующими второстепенными персонажами, и от этой книги я не могла оторваться.

Отличный современный роман с концовкой счастья-на-сейчас, в которую верилось. Рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
