Happily Ever Afters do exist. It’s time for Burke and June to get theirs.
June has suffered more than one devastating loss. Both events changed the entire course her life was headed. Now she's a full time farmer in Georgia and the guardian to her niece and nephew. After losing her sister and brother-in-law unexpectedly, she is thrust into parenthood. Luckily she is used to coming to the rescue and embraces her new role. She loves those kids.
Burke is a workaholic, over-achieving millionaire. The loss of his brother has left him reeling. Now to find out that he won't even get to raise his brother's kids, sets him on his path to Georgia. He's determined to convince June that the kids would be better off in California with him.
You catch more flies with honey, Burke would have been better served with that reminder. His attempts to bribe and manipulate fall on deaf ears. June is spunky and stubborn. She's not about to give them up, no matter the incentive or threat.
June and Burke definitely clash at first. Unfortunately (well maybe not), both of them also find the other incredibly attractive. SPARKS FLY! Spending time together only builds that tension and boy does it get HOT!!!
As they get to know one another, all preconceived notions fly out the window. We get to fall in love with Burke as he lets us see the real him. The man behind the obsessive work ethic with pain he hides from the world. I felt his heartache. It will tear you up to see him suffer. ALL THE FEELS with this one.
The author took us on a beautiful journey of loss and love. She shows us that love can heal the hurt and renew your faith in happily ever afters. I absolutely fell in love with these characters. This story was passionate and sexy. It also showed depth through the emotional journey these characters underwent to find their forever. You'll absolutely love this one!
Ella James didn’t disappoint me, though. Along with all the giggles, she brought drama and she wove it in how only she knows how to do. She knows how to hold back and when to pour out all the feels. This is a much lighter release than her normal heavy hitters (more along the lines of Boy Next Door) and I couldn’t be happier about the timing – fabulous levity to get 2020 rolling. I cannot get enough of Ms. James’ writing and am so happy she was able to release this so soon!
So grab your favorite glass, that box of wine, and head on out to the porch where you can kick your heels up and settle in for a fun and fabulous read!
I cannot recommend this dusky escalating love story enough. Hate You Not is heartbeat and heartache and everything I love about enemies to lovers.
I was not expecting the charmsicle that is Burke Matheson. Burke is soooo extra. He’s not alpha, he's . . . I don't know. He's beyawesome (beyond awesome). And June Bug is every single one of us.
Read this book! Unbelievably moving, it’s destined to be on every 2020 Top Romance Reads List. It’s uniquely modern, deeply resonant, and hopelessly romantic.
I could not turn the pages fast enough and I lost a whole night of sleep. These characters, the deep storyline, it’s a true enemies to friends to lovers journey.
Oh my god. I. LOVE. BURKE. I fell in love at the first flirt, when Burke stuck his foot in his mouth and spent the next 300 pages extricating it, with his sex god looks, magic uncle vibe, and the nuclear chemistry he throws June’s way. I love that he’s so resourceful, and a bit of a steamroller. Which makes for great chemistry and banter with June, who is so self-contained, she doesn’t want what he’s offering. June is not immune. Their scenes together are IN-Tense.
Burke is amazing. And flockHOT. He’s kind and gentle and knows his way around her body from head to toes. He wants to bond so badly and his woke self slays me. Burke is the book boyfriend.
I loved it. Yes it’s sweet, but it’s SIGNIFICANT. It’s complicated. I love that they are both imperfect and the grudge (you’ll have to read) works so well.
I love how Burke goes for subtle restraint. It’s just right, and I ached for his story, it’s tremendously powerful.
The story is set just off the languid red dirt backroads of Georgia in a field of pecan trees, and the writing is so rich I was there, in the humid conditions and family fun, along with the dogs and the laundry and that t-shirt drawer ;). A lovely sexy funny slow burn, James managed to balance the kids and animals so well. With the boot and the pool and the chickens and the pigs. And that red dirt.
Hate You Not is a love letter to her fans and everyone who loves banter and romance and longing and richter-scale worthy sexual tension. Unnnfff! His abs.
Burke may be an invention, but his intentions—mixed with his regret and loss, his brutal honesty—Burke is the perfect tonic to the steady diet of alphajerks that star in so many of the romances we read. I literally fell for him during his first clueless yet gobsmacked exchange with June.
Frankly, pretty sure there are more highlighted passages on my kindle than unhighlighted (chapter 10 is a tour de force in romance writing). A rarity for me. And that’s the thing. There’s not a wasted word here. Every scene, every passage has a moment. And the entire spell-binding relationship that grows out of their first meeting, their late night talks, their texts and deliveries, I love them. Burke and June stayed with me.
First and foremost this is a great story, rooted in reality with memorable characters that leave you breathless and craving more pages. You may even relish the massive book hangover that follows. God knows I’m in the middle of one.
You must know:
Burke Matheson is the Neville Longbottom of book boyfriends: at first glance the most unlikely of heroes, it turns out he’s everything, as essential as the oxygen we breath. *sigh* Burke Burke Burke
