Synopsis: When they’re stuck under one roof, the house may not be big enough for their hate…or their love.When Tyson Trice finds himself tossed into the wealthy coastal community of Pacific Hills, he’s ready for the questions, the stares and the feeling of not belonging. Not that he cares. After recovering from being shot and surviving the rough streets of Lindenwood, he doesn’t care about anyone or anything, much less how the rest of his life will play out.
Golden girl Nandy Smith has spent most of her life building the pristine image that it takes to fit in when it comes to her hometown Pacific Hills where image is everything. After learning that her parents are taking in a troubled teen boy, Nandy fears her summer plans, as well as her reputation, will go up in flames.
Now with Trice living under the same roof, the wall between their bedrooms feels as thin as the line between love and hate. Beneath the angst, their growing attraction won’t be denied. Through time, Trice brings Nandy out of her shell, and Nandy attempts to melt the ice that’s taken Trice’s heart and being. Only, with the ever-present pull back to the Lindenwood streets, it’ll be a wonder if Trice makes it through this summer at all. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: I was so excited to read A Love Hate Thing. I think the cover is so pretty, the colors speak to me, and I was drawn in by the synopsis. I'm always up for an enemies to lovers kind of story. I use enemies loosely, because these two characters just didn't really like each other at first. They couldn't stand each other, but that's because they didn't really know anything about each other. I guess a more accurate way to describe it would be strangers to friends, but that doesn't carry the same impact of enemies and lovers. Anyway, sorry for rambling a bit there. What I was trying to say is that I really like books with that angle, that trope.
I enjoyed A Love Hate Thing. I thought it was fun. I liked all the hostility and antagonism that eventually turned into friendship and more. I love watching a relationship emerge. I like when characters have to realize what they're feeling. It's so much more satisfying then insta-love.
I liked both characters, Nandy and Tyson. I mean, they both had their issues. They were at opposite ends of life. I liked seeing them come together, start to understand each other. I liked how they brought out good in each other.
A Love Hate Thing was a fun read and I'd definitely recommend it. I'm glad I got to read it.
