High school sweethearts. What a load of bull.

He might have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the masses to digest.

Seven years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to see the person again. Especially when they ripped out your heart and made hamburger meat with it.

But when a chance encounter ends up going viral, I’m tied to him in a way I’ve always dreaded. And the last person on earth I’d want to spend an hour with, much less a lifetime, makes me an offer I can’t refuse. I might just be desperate enough to take it.


The girl in the song is real. And she’s made me a rich man.

I’ve been dedicating choruses to her for a decade, she’s the muse she never wanted to be. Off of our love, I’ve become famous … and a complete egomaniac.

When another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good guy.

Coming face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.

Cover Review:

I love the cover, it's so in keeping with the novel, so beautiful and I don't know what else to say, I just love it! 💖

Book Review:

Thanks to United Indie Book Blog for the review copy!

The only thing that I can say I didn't like was the fact that it ended so soon! I was having so much fun!

I loved both the protagonists. And their POVs. Both of them, Kara and Dean made me laugh, grin, roll my eyes and fall in love with them.

I loved Kara for her independent spirit as well as her vulnerable side. I loved her badass-ness and her kindness.

Looking at him gives me a stomach ache, the kind where nausea and butterflies mix. You know he can't be good for you, but Goddamn it, you want to devour him anyway.

I loved Dean for his cockiness and the usual bad boy charm, but also for the deep love he had for Kara.

Together, I loved them for creating this masterpiece of a story of their life!

As Long As You Hate Me was entertaining right from the beginning. The first chapter ends with Kara slapping Dean. I actually highlighted that sentence and added a 'Go girl!' note to it, that's how much it had already captured me! And it only got better as it progressed, mind you!

As Long As You Hate Me was steamy, sexy, heart warming and tear jerking all at the same time and I loved every single bit of it! 💖
