Dare You to Hate Me
About this deal
I don’t think I’ve read any of the author’s books before but this one surely made me want to check out her other titles in her back catalogue because I enjoyed it quite a lot. I mean… it actually includes a lot of sports references including the team mates, the coach and playing the aforementioned sport. Four years later, fate is bringing them on each other's path for once again and things are getting complicated. She was so hot and cold, and I never felt like I knew who she truly was even at the end of the book.
Celeste is a new adult and contemporary romance author that gives voices to raw, realistic characters with emotional storylines that tug on the heartstrings.Ivy is barely picking up the pieces of her life when the boy whose initials she used to doodle hearts around approaches her at work. Despite Ivy trying to keep herself guarded and protected from getting hurt, Aiden managed to find his way back into Ivy’s life, and let’s be honest, Ivy missed him just as much too. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. At age 16, Ivy runs away from a home where she feels no longer welcome, where her parents struggle with financial issues, where the cops are a constant presence after her parents fight and her mother verbally abd emotionally abuses her.
And all the other guys who have kissed me with a purpose, touched me with a destination, and taken me to bed with a plan have never done so with as much passion as Aiden Griffith is right now. I loved every single thing about this story, and I feel like once you read it, you’ll understand what I mean. it doesnt really feel like their in love but more like ”they love each other because their besties with a history” and so yay lets have sex. Ivy was the perfect main character because she symbolizes a very common person in our world today that no one wants to talk about. There were definitely some ups and downs between Ivy and Aiden, but the moments when the romance was upon them were pretty passionate and meaningful.Cuando vio que no podía en lugar de regresar arrepentida pues no por orgullosa decide prostituirse solo para tener un lugar donde dormir o sea DUDE is seriously? Ivy’s built such a high wall around herself that it requires Aiden to literally bulldoze himself back into her life.
I’m not even sure where to start as this story was complex and emotional in so many ways that I needed to take some time to reflect on what I had read.
Can't say this one could be defined as refreshing or much lighter than the heavy hitters I've been reading. I liked reading some cute thoughts from Aiden’s pov, but we didn’t get any cutesy moments of them together. And of course there is plenty of steamy match-ups along with the raunchy language that goes along with a house full of jocks. As for the romance, I wish Ivy showed her love as freely as Aiden did, but I understood why she couldn't all the time. i didnt hate her but her character definitely annoyed me at times with her constantly pushing aiden away.
If you're a fan of angsty, raw, and real stories that just isn't only filled with good romance but also about life and the strength of family, this might be for you. So the night I snuck out of his bedroom window after hugging him goodbye, I’d accepted I’d probably never see him again.
