I didn’t know I was
that person. You know—the one who gets the kids. But that’s what the will said.
June Lawler: Legal Guardian.
My niece and nephew are 6 and 9, and all they’ve ever known is San Francisco. I
arrive the day after the wreck, pack up my sister’s mansion, and fly them back
to Georgia.
The small-town farm where their mom and I grew up isn’t what it once was, but
it’s home. That’s all they really need.

I was courting an investor when it happened. Tromped all up and down the
Himalayas, and he didn’t even buy in. It was a week before I found out what I’d
lost. My little brother meant the world to me. Now even his kids are gone.
Spirited away to Heat Springs, Georgia—population 298.
They’re living on a farm that’s half a breath from bank foreclosure with a
26-year-old who didn’t finish high school. Nowhereville is not the place for
little Mastersons. But I’ll get them back. It’s the money she must want, and
I’ve got lots of that.
“June Bug” Lawler is poorer than that red dirt she comes from. I can make her
dreams come true—and do one last thing for my brother.

I hate him.

She makes me crazy.

He thinks he can buy me off! I’ve never met a man so arrogant.

There’s no woman anywhere more stubborn.

I wish I had never met him.



But that’s not the story.

review

 [I received a digital arc for an honest review]

Hate You Not by Ella James is a new enemy to lovers stand-alone romance.

June finds herself with custody of her late sisters two children. She can’t give them the lavish California life they are accustomed to but can provide them with all the love they could ever need. She lives on and owns a struggling farm in Georgia but can keep a roof over their heeds, food in the bellies, and smiles on their faces. When their uncle Burke discovers their new situation he’s less than thrilled. He has money and he wants the kids with him. He shows up with a poor attitude and highly underestimates June. It isn’t long before he realizes his mistake and sees she’s the right person for the kids and maybe for him.

This should have been a home run hit or me. I was absolutely sold by the synopsis. Big city boy, country bumpkin , cute kids, angst and sexual tension. It was a great idea but somewhere along the line it didn’t come together quite right. I can’t even pin point what exactly it was. I guess the connection between June and Burke just didn’t work for me at all. It felt cheap, the writing didn’t make me believe they had any genuine feelings. They didn’t flow as a pairing and somehow the whole story line felt forced.

Overall, Hate You Not by Ella James just didn’t meet my expectations. A decent enemy to lovers romance with cute kids, farm animals and southern hospitality.
