Kennedy is studying
law and ends up in the same class as two football
stars, Shay Coleman and Linde. Since she has been
burned by a football jerk before in Parker and wants to stay focussed on her studies, she is staying away from the
jocks. However, Shay is not someone who is used to girls saying no to him,
and there is something about Kennedy that he likes. Thus begins a romantic
chase for Shay as he tries to get Kennedy to like him.
This book is quite edgy and tackles some confronting issues. I loved Kennedy - she is a real kick-ass character who isn't afraid to tell people what she thinks. I did later learn this was her coping mechanism, but she was strong-willed. I have to admit I liked the side character of Linde since he was a good friend and a solid guy. I didn't see the twist at the end coming, but I was like 'geez throw some more drama into the fire, why don't now Tijan'. Hate To Love You is an awesome book that will have you wanting to go to college all over again and is filled with drama that will have you on the edge of your seat. (PP)
