BLOG TOUR: Hate To Love You by Elise Alden


New Adult Contemporary Romance
Date Published: June 2, 2014


Book Synopsis:
Despite my slutty reputation, I was technically a virgin at eighteen. But it turns out all those sex-ed teachers aren’t just trying to scare you. The faint positive on the budget pregnancy test sent me spinning, moments before I was supposed to meet my snooty sister’s new fiancé.
Shaking hands with upper-crusty James was like downing a triple shot of vodka. Dizzy with desire, confused by my body’s reaction, and shocked by the possessiveness flashing in his eyes, I deceived him that night and told the world at their wedding reception.
The truth?
I slept with my sister’s fiancé. Hot and sweaty, all night long in a room so dark he couldn’t tell I wasn’t her.
The lie?
Said fiancé is the father of my child. The one I signed over my rights to just before he was born.
That was seven years ago.
It’s time to come clean.


REVIEW: 
This is rated ♨♨♨ 1/2 cups for the excellent writing and a heroine that displays a very humorous outlook despite everything not going right in her life.  Like most NA out there, there were angst ridden plot devices, an almost over the top villainess and a very cold hero (or so the reader thinks).  But Paisley is like Tess of d'Urbanvilles without too much of the helplessness  cross with the attitude of a Bridget Jones with a drug and alcohol problem.  In other words despite all the drama, there is humor and there is a real life feel to the novel.  Paisley is truly one character you definitely would want to know.

You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making.

EXCERPT:

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I…
