Release Blitz: Hate To Love You by Isabelle Richards


Hate To Love You is LIVE!

Opposites in every way, Chase and Arianna have been bitter rivals since childhood. Constantly in competition, they fight incessantly, making it nearly impossible for them to be in the same room with each other. Until they slept together.
Sex changes everything.
In one emotional evening, they go from enemies to lovers. Hate quickly evolves into passionate lust, but old habits die hard. The love growing between them can’t erase a lifetime of animosity. The two quickly fall back into old routines of spite and vengeance, and their relationship crumbles under the weight of their deep-seated distrust.
Chase and Arianna spend the next two years on opposite sides of the globe, avoiding each other at all costs. Despite the lies they tell themselves, neither one is ready to let go. Even though they are both engaged to other people, they can’t find it in their hearts to forgive each other or to move forward.
A family emergency calls Arianna home, where they have no choice but to face each other again. Will they finally admit the truth, or will they remain forever trapped between love and hate?
4.5 Mind Blowing Stars!

Review by Lisa Kane

I simply, utterly loved this book. It frustrated me to no end and the main characters are an exercise in patience with their on again/off again relationship. They were rivals in their youth, almost bordering on enemies. Their families are as close as you can get without a blood bond. Arianna is the daughter of two powerhouse athletes. Her mom was the world's foremost tennis player and her dad was a football god. Now he is a coach. Since her mom's tragic death the two families are even more united. But her strange relationship with Chase, her best friend Charlie's twin brother makes all of them cringe. They can not be in the same room without fireworks exploding. 

All that changes one night when they are in each other's company and their sexual attraction for each other overpowers them. Arianna is a virgin; Chase has been with more girls than he can count. His gorgeous face, hot body and his skill as the high school football team's quarterback provides him with an all he can eat buffet of willing girls to feast on. Arianna wants Chase to take her virginity. Her life is one tennis tournament after another. She is the "it" girl of the court and travels all over the world to compete. But for some reason, Chase is who she chose to lose her V-card to-and once it's done there is no ignoring that things have changed. 

But Arianna does what she does best-the morning after- she runs. Literally, runs away. Chase wanted more than their one night but she shuts that down quickly. This sets the tone for the next 4 years of their lives. They break apart, come together and break apart. They agree to keep their relationship a secret from everyone-no sense in their loved ones suffering from the fall out if things don't work out. 

But two years ago, Chase screwed up. Only he doesn't know he did and things were over for good. Through a series of misunderstandings, they both moved on and are engaged to other people. One wonders if those engagements were the result of a game of one upmanship. A means to inflict more hurt to the other. Only those kinds of hurts leave lasting scars. 

Arianna has been on the run for the last two years, refusing to be anywhere near Chase. But she suffers a devastating loss to her career and she is home. A family illness ensures she is home to stay. It is inevitable that she will run into Chase. Seeing him with his fiance shouldn't hurt after all this time right? 

I wanted to take these two jack asses and knock their heads together. It is so obvious that they are not and never will be over each other. But they just can't stop hurting the other with their rivalry. Just when I thought maybe, just maybe they are finally going to get it right; an evil scheming witch brews up a whole cauldron of trouble, leaving us with the mother of all cliffys. Fortunately, the sequel is coming fairly quickly (although not quick enough for me!) and I am hoping I will get the HEA I need.
