***This is book two in the series. It is best if you read book one first to fully understand this couple’s story.***
Hate 2 Lovers is the second installment for the 2 Love series by K Webster and JD Hollyfield. And although the book can be read as a standalone, I would still recommend for you to read Text 2 Lovers first. One, because it is such a good read and two, because it is an introduction for the two main characters of this story.
As the saying goes, there is a fine line between hate and love. And that specifically is portrayed in the story. I’ve loved most of the story that K Webster has written, even those that are actually not really my type of story. And I always admire how he can portray a book boyfriend one would actually want to have. It is kind of refreshing to read a book boyfriend that does not have much of an issue. Although the heroine was a bit clichéd. Typical traumatized kid that was afraid to risk more in life. Though I did like how she was not really as cold-hearted as she seems to be.
I’m not sure if it was because of all the other romance stories I’ve read, but the plot seems to be a little on the predictable side. I didn’t really felt some intense plot twist. It was kind of cliché and I was already predicting what’ll happen next and was just waiting how things will unfold. Who will end up who was kind of a given, but I missed on the “suspense” on whether how they will end up together. Even the epilogue was quite expected for me. Not the scene specifically, more of the build-up they’re doing for the characters.
Nonetheless, I still enjoyed the “lightness” of the book. I still found a few parts here and there that were funny. The story was quite entertaining too. I was still able to enjoy the book even if I was already expecting what will happen next. The plot itself is okay. I wouldn’t go as far as saying it was intriguing but it wasn’t really something that I was just obliged to finish.
Overall, I would still give this a 4 out of 5 stars. I’m reading to be entertained and that is what the book offered me. Although it wasn’t really as good as the first one, this is still a recommended read for me especially if you’ve red Text 2 Lovers. You really wouldn’t want to miss what happens next.
It’s the start of nothing good. I fired off a storm of raunchy text messages…to the wrong number. And he replied. Him: Show me a picture. Him: Tell me your name. Why does the lure of anonymity have me craving to indulge a stranger? It’s the start of everything right. I received a slew of text messages…when everything in my life was wrong. And she made me laugh again. Her: You’re probably a creeper. Her: Possibly a stalker. Why do I have the overwhelming need to find this stranger who saved me and make her mine? Him: Take a chance with me. Her: This is crazy. Him: I need to see you. Her: What are we doing? Him: We’re about to find out. Her: PHOTO ATTACHED Him: PHOTO ATTACHED
