Synopsis: It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now it's full blown hate.
It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.
The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone.
Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it. And we’re happy.
Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me. As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.
I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.
I loved the first book in this series, so I couldn't wait for this book to release! Especially after I read the synopsis and saw the cover! I only had to wait a few months for this book, but it felt like ages lol! I then got an email about Blog Tour sign-ups and I quickly signed up! I squealed when I got my ARC! I completely loved this book! It did take me longer than I thought it was going too to read, but once I started getting into it, I couldn't get through it fast enough! I absolutely loved it! The plot was amazing! It had a slightly more suspenseful side to it compared to the first book, but I was expecting this because of what happened in the first book and how the first book ended! I loved the suspense! It added so much to the plot and it kept me wanting to find out how it was all going to go down! The plot was also full of romance! The romance was so beautiful, and seriously hot lol! I just loved everything about the plot and it got better and better as it developed! There was everything I love in a plot in it too! The characters were again amazing! Rimmell was again the main female character, and she had grown a lot since the first book! She still had this sort of geeky, clumsy personality about her, but she was fierce in this book and she defended her relationship with her love interest, Romeo! I loved that she had grown and become more confident! She also became more confident because of the suspense side of the plot too! I felt so sorry for her in this book too because of the suspense! She went through a lot and was placed in difficult and scary situations! She handled it all so well though, which impressed me! Romeo was again the main male character, and he was seriously hot in this book! He may even have been hotter than what he was in the first book lol! I loved Romeo more in this book than what I did in the first book! I felt like he had changed into a guy who knew what he wanted and that he had his head on straight more because of the serious amount of love he had for Rimmell! He was also fiercely protective of Rimmell, which I could understand because of the situation they were in! Romeo also seriously impressed me in this book, and I loved the way he was with Rimmell too! Anyone could see that he would do anything for her and to keep her safe! I loved that this book was again written from both Rimmell and Romeo's point of views! It added a lot to the plot and getting to see the amount of love they had for each other through both of their eyes was so beautiful! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that it's going to continue Rimmell and Romeo's story, which I wasn't sure if it was going too, but that's made me even more excited to read it! I can't wait to see how their story is going to end! The cover for this book is just unreal! It suits the book perfectly, and it suits the cover for the first book perfectly too! I'm in complete love with it! Big thank you to Cambria for an ARC of #Hater and to Enticing Journey Book Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!
