Hate To Want You by Alisha Rai (Review Post)

Published July 5, 2017 by bookbesties



Alisha Rai, one of contemporary romance’s brightest stars, makes her Avon Books debut with the first novel in the sexy Forbidden Hearts series

One night. No one will know.

That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts—and the last names that made them enemies.

Until the night she didn’t show up.

Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want…so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?

Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence—and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.

Being together might be against all the rules…but being apart is impossible.

This is my first time reading anything from this author but the cover intrigued me! Nicholas Chandler and Olivia Kane were once lovers until a tragedy causes a rift between families. Olivia and Nicholas secretly agree on one night every year where they meet and don’t talk after till the next year. I was sucked in from the beginning the banter between these two is hot, fiery and the sparks show from chapter one! I was left rooting for them and I didn’t want to put the book down! I had so many questions: Why did their families hate each other? Can Olivia forgive Nicholas? Will they rise from the problems of their past? This book had the right amount of chapters and the chemistry between these two was sweltering! My only negative to this story is I would have loved an epilogue or a more finalized ending but it was still a high five book for me! Can’t wait to read more from this Author!
