Every Sunday we are taking a look at the world of books. I read a lot and always want to share my opinions on what I read, so I thought it would be fun to write reviews. Today we are going to look at a rom com by Jo Watson
Love to Hate You (2018)
Sera is usually a good girl.
(Except for one wild night in the backseat of a stranger’s car!)
But what happens when that bad boy turns out to be her new boss? And what happens when he wants more than one night . . . and he can be very persuasive . . .

If you are looking a for a holiday read then I would say that is a book that you could delve into. It is a book that has a lot of praises online for being funny, whilst that is not my opinion, it is always good to show both sides.
I read a lot of fiction and I found this book a bit jumbled up in the way it was written, it felt at times that it was a story that was a bit confused at times. I felt that the narrative jumped all over the place and initially I forced myself to keep reading as I didn’t like a lot of the first section of the book as it felt a bit all over the place. I think it was only around the the pages near 100 that I started to feel like i was getting into the book. The one thing I really detested and have done in other books as well is when they use a line or a quote from the chapter as the title of that said chapter – it ruins the narrative and in some ways acts like a spoiler which is really annoying.
Personally, I wasn’t a fan of this book, I found that it was a book that was very confused in it’s narrative initially and then whilst it developed into a story that was a bit more engaging it still jumped around a lot. I found some of the important details of the main characters were explained too late such as age, the fact the lead wore glasses, simple things that should of been brought in earlier. Whilst there are some good sections, I know I won’t be reading it again, however if you are looking for a book as a sort of ‘holiday read’ maybe this is the one for you.
