Make Me Hate You by Kandi Steiner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is going down as one of my favorites of 2020 and a top fav of mine from Kandi Steiner! BRAVO to this author for writing a trope with sticky situations with such tact and finesse. It made me question life’s decisions – decisions we make as humans. It reminded me that humans are not perfect, nor were we meant to be.
Not only does K Steiner create characters with depth, but she writes their story so beautifully that I found myself sighing, swooning and highlighting every other paragraph! Tyler & Jasmine have a connection that is so real which stemmed from an early age. I was pulled into their magnetic tie from the Prologue and felt every bit of adolescent angst and young love as their story continued. It was almost as if 7 years never passed once they reunited, and although their banter and angst were apparent, the obvious chemistry between them never once stopped humming. I cheered every moment for these two!
You may question some of their decisions. You may not agree with how they approached things. But what I realized is that these two characters followed their hearts. They didn’t set out to maliciously hurt others nor did they ignore their actions or consequences. I cried tears of pain and joy for Tyler & Jasmine and will read their story again and again! Well done once again K Steiner!
