I Hate You, I Love You by Elizabeth Hayley

There’s a fine line between love and hate. And these two can’t decide which side they’re really on...

Poetry professor Naomi Price is loved by her students, happily works around the clock, and has credentials no one could deny. Except, it seems, for her arch-nemesis at Hainamor University. The man never has anything polite to say, and now the two of them are competing for a prestigious honor that just so happens to come with a cash award. With every move Naomi makes to impress her colleagues, her rival is right there beside her, elbow to elbow, making it impossible to ignore how devastatingly hot he is—even if he is a total bastard.

Sebastian Blake knows what Naomi thinks of him, and he’s trying hard not to care. Maybe he’s been grouchy with her in the past, but she isn’t making his life any easier with her crusade to win over the Personnel Committee and earn an honor that is rightfully his. Naomi just doesn’t quit, and though he’d never admit it, there’s something sexy about her. Something that has him tied up in knots. Something that makes him want to move beyond his painful past and take a chance—at least for as long as it takes to kiss her silly and see what happens next.

Warning: Intense bickering leads to intense sexual chemistry!

I really enjoyed this book, I wasn’t able to put it down once I started it and I’m giving it four stars. Sebastian is a cranky English professor who has had a rough time in life after the loss of his wife and daughter. Sebastian is an extra-large a$$ to Naomi, the poetry professor whose office cubicle is directly across from his, and Naomi equally despises him, despite the physical attraction between the two. To make a tough situation even worse, the two have both been nominated for an award at the college and are to compete against one another to determine the winner. While competing, the two wind up having to work together and the more time they spend together, the more the hate begins to turn into something more.

Not only did I love both of the main characters, I found their banter hilarious and it’s what made the book hard to put down. The only reason I’m giving four instead of five stars is because the wording in the story was sometimes overdone. I realize that the characters were both college professors, but it was still a bit much. Despite that, I’m excited to read more from Elizabeth Hayley.

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. They learned a ton about each other through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly. They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.
