“HATE NOTES was the perfect blend of sweet and fun that I knew these two authors could deliver.”
~ Under the Covers

I confess I debated whether I would read this book or not.  To be honest, I’ve gone a bit away from reading both of these authors (their solo books) the past few months.  But ultimately the fact that I tend to enjoy what they write together made me cave.  And I’m happy I did.  HATE NOTES was the perfect blend of sweet and fun that I knew these two authors could deliver.

It’s a unique take on an office romance in how they came to work together.  Maybe a little over the top, but fun nonetheless.  One drunken night puts Charlotte in the path of possibly the man of her dreams.  All thanks to a returned wedding dress and a blue note.  Starting off not liking each other much but having to deal with working together, they quickly develop a friendship and that was probably my favorite part of the book.  It’s really sweet how they become friends and the way they connect with each other.  They pushed each other to be better and live life to the fullest.  It was sweet and fun to watch.

As always, it has the trademark chemistry that I expect from this author collaboration.  But it also packs a bit of an emotional punch.  I thought I wouldn’t cry but then the epilogue got to me.

Overall, this was a great solid read from this duo and I’m happy I got to read it!  Now looking forward to what they put out next.

Favorite Quotes:

“I think it’s better to spend years treasuring a memory that might hurt sometimes than to never make one at all.”

“You want to mold my cock?  Do you have enough clay?”

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

This book took me on an emotional journey I wasn’t expecting. I cried through a lot of the second half. Loved it, but I am drained.
