What in the Blue Grass did I just read??????? I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t read a dark book like this in a long time but….. shocked is not even the type of word that I want to put in to my vocabulary right now. Ya’ll ….. these characters were messed up!!!

After doing a big exhale and trying to articulate exactly what I want to say in this review, I still freakin can't so I deeply apologize in advance if this review is all over the place. He Hates Me is not your ordinary cookie cutter read and I feel like I have to say that first. We have two characters who from the outside are completely polar opposites to each other but once you get down to the nitty gritty, they are one in the same in so many ways.

Georgina lives a very boring simple life and when asked, she will say that she prefers it that way. With a stressful job as an ER nurse, her idea of relaxing after a long day of work is coming home to her two cats and having a nice bath. Simple. Quiet. Peaceful. But what Georgina is about to find out is that danger is lurking around the corner in the form of a man who is going to give her everything she’s ever wanted and more. But at what cost?


“Being liked doesn’t get the job done.

Fear does".

Jasper Cain is a man of few words and he lets his actions do all of the talking. Being a hitman for one of the most dangerous crime family, he knows exactly how to survive in any situation and get the job done. When he sees the beautiful nurse for the first time, he adds something else to his job description that he never saw coming. STALKER. How will Jasper’s new obsession end for a woman he knows deep down he can never keep?


I freakin loved that this book was dark and it never glossed over the gory parts. The writing was almost flawless when it came to that and I think that dark romance fans will not only appreciate it, they will love it and try to savor it as much as possible. The problem I had with this book was the excessive amount of sex scenes. I feel like that took away a good portion of the plot and when things were finally starting to get suspenseful and downright action packed, we were hit with a cliffhanger. I needed more of a storyline and less sex if I’m being honest.

Now what I did enjoy was the plot twist. I didn’t see that one coming and I loved that we were hit with the element of surprise. With these new secrets that were unfolded, there is so much that can happen in book two and I’m excited and so anxious to see how these authors are going to put everything together.

If you’re a fan of dark fucked up reads, then this is your book!!!

Please note: This book does end on a cliffhanger and it is extremely dark.
