Our Review

‘I’d wanted the woman since I’d first laid eyes on her on a casual Friday. Somewhere over the course of the past six months, every little encounter we’d had, every ridiculous story I’d overheard her tell Margot, every unnecessary, long-winded word she’d used to insult me, had me infatuated with her.’

Meet Hate Love by Stevie J. Cole is just what we needed and quite different from what we’ve read from this Author before. It was hilarious swoony fun with a fabulous and entertaining storyline and wonderful characters we fell in love with. We honestly couldn’t stop laughing, many times out loud as we read with perma grins on our faces. It was hilarious steamy fun with situational comedy that tickled our funny bone all the way through. Bloody hilarious in its own addictive, ridiculous, and bizarre way which felt unique and was so well written!

‘Blake was practically a living, breathing omen of bad luck and misfortune, and I was about to be joined at the hip with her and all her bad juju for fourteen days.’

Blake is adorably eccentric and the situations she gets herself into are just too much but in a good way! Calamity Blake more like. Her banter with Vance and her bestie, Margot, is spot on and had us chuckling out loud. Blake has a real issue with Vance her annoyingly attractive and dry humoured work colleague who has a tendency to hijack her assignments as well as her thoughts and saucy fantasies. But when he tells her in a heated clinch that he heard she’s easy, the gloves come off. Even worse when he swipes her Paris trip from under her nose, a work assignment that was meant to be her eat, pray, love moment, Blake’s had enough. Blackmail shenanigans commence with a travelling pierced peen and together they fly on a ’how to survive a trip with your nemesis’ holibobs. We all know how this old chestnut will turn out right? Well, the way in which Stevie J Cole wrote Blake and Vance’s story felt refreshingly unique and without question turned out to be one of the funniest rom-coms we’ve read in a while.

Blake: In order to keep things from being weird, I booked a different hotel.
Me: You realize this makes it extra weird, you weirdo?

What starts off in Blake’s mind as a hate-hate relationship soon turns into a hate-love, enemies to lovers, work romance with a sexual tension you could cut with a knife, and a fiery and steamy passionate affair. Oooo la la…Vance…..no way we could resist him either. Je voudrait un grande baguette avec Vance….Our French sucks but if you know…you know!

‘Sure, he could whip up a witty line of dry sarcasm about cheddar cheese, but Vance was the guy I fully expected to grow old and yell at kids for riding their bikes across the corner of his pristine lawn, not have a pierced dick he paraded around like the Olympic torch on a Lonely Fans account. This could not be real life.’

Stevie J Cole really outdid herself with Meet Hate Love, she managed to cheekily give a nod to ‘book moments’ we love but would be utterly ridiculous in -real- life and she wrote them in such a witty and clever way. She nailed the balance of heat and comedy and wrote a story and characters that had depth, personality, and a strong passionate connection. Every romcom book lover should one-click this beauty and prepare for one hell of a crazy-arsed ride that’ll have you laughing, shaking your head, cringing, fanning your face, and falling hopelessly in love!

‘Seemed she liked long-haired bad boys who would use a gun to get her off and make her call them Daddy? I had a lot to live up to.’


An act of hysterical blackmail between two work enemies kicks off this flirty and utterly ridiculous laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from USA TODAY bestselling author Stevie J. Cole.

I hated Vance Morgan, my arrogant office mate, more than anyone in the world. And yet, there I was, on a Paris-bound flight, cramped in the small space by his six-foot-four, arrogant frame.

And why?

Because after the sexy, thieving bastard stole my dream assignment, I found out he had a Lonely Fans page. One dedicated to pictures of his man-meat stick in front of world monuments. So, I did what any rational woman in my situation would do. I blackmailed his hot, article-swindling behind.

The problem was, he blackmailed me right back. And thanks to him and his can’t lose-attitude, we ended up stuck together, traveling around Europe while coming up with tips and tricks on how to survive vacationing with someone you hate. Easy. I despised the man. Or at least I did until a few days of tiny hotel rooms and steamy tension came to a massive head.

But what happens in Paris stays in Paris, until it doesn’t. Because what I brought back with me was much more than I’d ever bargained for.

“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’


“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
