A sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Harloe Rae where a billionaire CEO battles against a snarky redhead who has her own agenda.

“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but I’ve never been a good liar.”

That’s his initial offense against me.

Don’t worry—there’s plenty more where that came from.

Landon Winters is colder than his last name suggests.

Cruel and callous too.

I’m certain he finds pleasure in making others miserable.

He’s a billionaire by his own making—not satisfied with simply inheriting a white collar and silver spoon.

Landon’s arrogance is so thick I could choke on the stench alone.

He’s also responsible for gouging a jaded chip into my shoulder.

The only saving grace is never having to see him again.

Wishful thinking is a fickle beast.

My boss just announced that Landon is my latest client.

I’ll need to impress him or kiss my promotion goodbye.

Either way, this is my chance to get even.

Revenge is all I see.

The price for redemption is steep.

Landon will pay a small fortune in humiliation.

And I’ll walk away filthy rich in vindication.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars

If you like enemies-to-lovers workplace romances, then Something Like Hate will be right up your alley. A year after Landon brushes Vannah off at her cousin’s wedding — she not knowing that he is a megamillionaire — he turns out to be the new high-profile client she’s assigned to work with as his realtor. The snark flows instantly, as these two can barely stand the sight of one another. The sexual chemistry is flowing as well. Landon suggests a no-strings fling, while Vannah wants revenge for being turned down a year ago and hopes to make Landon fall for her then dump him. Of course, things don’t quite go that way…

So… I liked this story, but didn’t LOVE this story. I felt like some key piece of Landon’s history was missing that made him such an alphahole. Yes, his father was mean, blah, blah, blah. I wanted MORE of that. I felt like that was glossed over in an attempt to make Landon a cold-hearted billionaire ala Christian Grey. We got Vannah’s backstory and a reconciliation with her dad (who she didn’t think was proud of her success), and I wanted the same kind of insight for Landon’s character. And I didn’t really feel it when he suddenly flipped the switch and realized he was head over heels for Vannah. It came out of nowhere and I wanted more of that revelation. I felt like I missed a chunk of the story where that happened.

Overall, this book is a steamy, sexy, enemies-to-lovers workplace romance. I enjoyed it, but didn’t fall head over heels in love with Landon and Savannah.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
