Hate to Love You, an all-new standalone from New York Times Bestseller Tijan is available NOW!
Hate to Love You by Tijan Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: August 28th
Rule #1: No hot guys.
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.
No one would know me at college.
Rule #2: No drama.
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.
Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.
And all because of Shay Coleman.
Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .
. . . and he was about to break all my rules.
Excerpt:I was almost grinning from delight as I shoved open the back door. If I hit him, hey, all was fair in the war we were fighting of who could piss each other off the best. It didn’t. He was leaning against the wall, the back of his head resting on the brick, and he looked over to smirk at me. “I want to see your room.” I thrust my hand out. “I’ll take those notes.” That smirk just widened. He patted his bag and pushed off from the wall. “They’re in my email. I need to get on a computer.” He patted my arm and moved past me, heading inside. “I can use yours.” “Hey!” I followed him in. He was looking up the stairs. “Sabrina said you were on the fourth floor. You saw my place. I want to see yours. It’s only fair.” He wasn’t waiting for my go-ahead. He was already up and rounding second floor to third. He’d be at my floor before I could get there. “Stop! I am not okay with this.” He was at the third-floor door. He glanced down with that same goddamn smirk. “Better tell me which room or I’m going to hang out in the hallway.” “Why are you always smirking? Is it permanently attached to your face?” “What room, Clarke?” He was at my hallway door. Fucking hell. I gritted my teeth. “Wait. Just wait. My door automatically locks.” He’d opened the door but let it shut. Waiting as I covered the last set of stairs, I refused to let him see me panting. I stood there, purposely holding my breath until he narrowed his eyes and cocked his head to the side. “Breathe, Clarke. You’re going to pass out.” I almost burped out the small pocket of air I’d been holding. “I hate you so much.” “Yeah, yeah.” He waved that off. “We get it. Eternal damnation in hell, the whole shebang. Whatever.” He nodded to the door. “Stop stalling. I want to see your room.” I was picturing pitchforks and fire. Maybe that was the burning smell he mentioned. It was hell, and all the fire in there. I yanked the door, glaring as I did. “Was this Sabrina’s idea?” “Nope. All mine.” He was right behind me. I could feel his breathing. “She refused to tell me your room number, said I had to call.” My eyes widened at the thought of him coming up by himself, strolling down the hallway, and then knocking on my door. Good Lordy gracious. Too many would’ve seen him at my door. I would’ve been the talk of the dorm. I shuddered, unlocked, and entered my room.

I popped my Tijan cherry with this book. I have been dying to check out one of her books, but since I started blogging I rarely have non-blog reading time and she is always the buzz among other bloggers. And I loved this book...now I understand why so many people love her books.
Kennedy has a lot of self-imposed rules to survive college that I chuckled just a little bit. You get to see all of her hangups and issues and social awkwardness as she makes her way through her first semester. Kennedy meets Shay in her first pre-law class and he has her breaking all of her rules.
This book is angsty, full of twists and jaw dropping moments that will keep you turning the pages. What I loved the most is that you get Kennedy's knee-jerk opinions of the people she meets and as things happen in the book you get to see that change. This was a fantastic book that deal with college life, typical college social experiences and some extremely serious situations. It was pretty awesome how Kennedy deals with what happens to her and how it changes her perspective of other people and somewhere along the way she falls head over heels for Shay Coleman.
So, if you enjoy a good college romance with lots of substance and enjoy lots of twists in the story, then you must check out this book...you will not be disappointed.

I'm not sure what rock I have been hiding under but for some reason, Tijan has totally slipped under my radar. But let me tell you, she's on it now with this book and I absolutely cannot wait to read more from her.
This story is an amazing college, enemies-to-lovers story that has so much more than the usual college drama. Kennedy has a story..one she isn't sharing with anyone. She also has rules that she has instituted in order to keep her college life drama free and her heart protected. No hot guys, no drama, new year, new me. Sounds easy enough...but nothing is ever that easy, especially when you catch the eye of the hottest, most popular guy in college.
Shay Coleman is everything Kennedy doesn't need and she hates him on sight. She is forced to work with him and deal with him but she is feisty, snarky and downright rude most of the time. However, her snarkiness does not have it's intended results as it intrigues Shay even more. Will he be able to break through her shell and show her how beautiful she really is.
There is so much more to this story than meets the eye. There are difficult moments that need to be dealt with in several instances and they are dealt with beautiful by Tijan. I absolutely loved watching all of these characters grow up and become so much more!
