R E V I E W ➠ To Hate You by Bella J.


Dear Noah,

I hate you.
I hate the memory of you.
I hate the color of your eyes and the image of your face that’s stuck inside my head. No matter how hard I try, I can’t forget you.
I hate that damn cottage. I hate that I can still smell you when I go in there, and I wish I could burn it all to the ground.
I hate that I kissed you that night. I hate that I can’t go back in time and stop myself from doing it. That’s how it all started, with a simple kiss. A stupid kiss. A moment that ruined my life.
I hate the letter you left me.
I hate that I sat around for weeks waiting for you, hoping you’d come back. But you never did.
I hate that I miss you. You don’t deserve it.
I hate that you were right. You hurt me just like you said you would.
And I hate that, even though you broke my heart…I’ll never forget you.
Not all my love,

RELEASE DATE: February 10, 2022

Not my first read by the author and I have of course read the 1st book in this duo. I have mixed feelings about this duo. I had to re-read the first book because it’s been a while and cliffies are hard to remember. This is also a reason I have mixed feelings about this author, because I just can’t do cliffhangers anymore. That said after the re read and jumping into this book, I have the same feeling on the whole ‘she let him in too easy and things just flew back together too easy’ as some of the other reviewers. I was expecting a fight, groveling and just over all more explosive in that area. The book featured a lot of heart and passion but I was just missing something there.

Sienna was left by Noah and not only broken hearted but her spirit also broke. That said she is trying to pick herself back up and move on with life, start new, just MOVE ON. This book is full of secrets, loss and so much that’s held back, that’s why when I said I was missing something, I think it just turned out too easy after the peak…I really wanted that *boom* I did enjoy their passion for one another again, the agony you can feel and the romance, well it was there just in a different way. All in all I have to say that I think this could have most definitely be a one book show but glad I was able to get the conclusion.
