Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Hating Season, by K.A. Linde


Release Date: April 28
Court Kensington is a thorn in my side.
I’m hired to clean up his badboy image, which would’ve been easy if my life wasn’t falling apart.
First, I catch my movie star husband having an affair with his co-star. Then when I return to work, my job is at stake, because Court has gotten himself into trouble…again.
Instead of getting him back in line, I find myself falling for his charm. And into his bed. And against the wall. And, and, and…
Except Kensington charm shouldn’t work on me. Not when I’ve sworn to never ever sleep with a client.
I had good intentions.
I really did.
But we all know the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

The Hating Season is book 2 in the Seasons series, which itself is a spinoff of other KA Linde books. I have to admit, I liked Anna and Cord’s story much better than I liked The Lying Season. The books are interconnected, and the characters are friends, so there is lots of crossover. But as a couple, I connected with English and Cord right off the bat, and found their banter and bickering quite enjoyable.

Cord is the perfect entitled playboy. He acts without thinking, and rarely pays the consequences for his actions. As his publicist, English has her hands full trying to clean up his image so it doesn’t tarnish his mom’s reelection campaign as NYC mayor and dealing with her own cheating husband. Sleeping with a client is something that English never thought she’d do, but the hatefest between her and Cord just leads to all kinds of sizzle.

Underneath that gruff exterior, there is something so sweet about Cord when it comes to Anna. Their affair gives him reason to grow up and take a hard look at his life choices, and it’s there’s a nice arc in his development.

Will I continue with this series? Maybe. I wasn’t so sure I would read on after The Lying Season, but I enjoyed The Hating Season enough that I’m interested to see what comes next for this crew. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
