RELEASE DAY: Hate Me by LP Lovell

an all new emotional mafia romance 
by LP Lovell is AVAILABLE NOW!

"There is something about LP's voice that I will never get over. I love the wild ride, the twists and turns and the suspense that kept me turning the page and refusing to get up or do anything that would tear me away from this world." - USA Today Bestselling Author Willow Winters
I am a whore. A slave. A possession. I accepted my fate long ago, but fate is not done with me yet. Freedom is so close I can almost taste it, only to have it snatched away under the guise of protection. A guilded cage is still a cage. Friend or foe? Saviour or oppressor? Rafael D’Cruze is a bad man. I hate him, so why do I feel safe with him?
She’s a favour. Collateral. A pretty slave. I have no interest in her beyond keeping her alive for the man who now owns her. And yet…I’m fascinated by the little Russian. There is no room for weakness in my world, but it appears the delicate rose has steel petals. I’m willing to bleed for a willing touch, a trusting glance…
A broken little bird. The big bad wolf. A longing that could heal or destroy.
Hate me or hold me?

First, this cover… wowzas!! I don’t know if it’s the guy… the darkness that is the cover with that deep red, the cigar, I don’t know but I look at it and all of a sudden its 5 minutes later and I’m still looking at it. So, maybe LP Lovell put some type of hypnotic characteristic in it? That has to be it!! Is it weird that I really REALLY wish it had highlighted Anna? I would have loved having a face, of innocence and darkness, on this cover.

So obviously I have a thing for Anna. I just don’t understand how after being sold at the impressionable age of 13 she can still be as strong as she is. It doesn’t matter that she uses drugs to get by… honestly, after some of the sick and twisted things she’s lived through I can’t fathom that she still has some fight in her. Rafael is after paying off an owed debt. However, meeting Anna changes something in his cold and dark heart!

Hate Me was a super strong story. It really was a super slow burn, which was perfect for Anna’s character. It showed a ton of respect for Anna from Rafael and I love that! I wasn’t digging Rafael one way or the other but this just put him way over the top for me! LP Lovell writes about this “world” perfectly. It’s the same world as the Kill Me and Kiss Me books. The writing was just what I expect from Lovell. I know it seems picky that I’m giving it a 4 star rating but there just wasn’t anything hugely special. It was good but no huge ommph, for me anyway. I am looking forward to the next installment though.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
