I usually enjoy reading about love-hate relationships, but I thought this didn't fall under that category quite well. There's a big attraction the main characters can't deny and they quickly turn their teasing into action, but I'm afraid the hate is not very strong. When Hailey brings up the 'hate', it doesn't really register like that and Cole seems to push her buttons more to get in her pants rather than making her hate him. Also, because we don't get to know much about Cole—besides the fact that he's taking care of a mess Hailey's sister has created with a certain scandal—he constantly remains a very enigmatic character. Although I love a bit of a mystery, I felt like in this case too much was missing and I didn't completely lust for Cole.
That being said, it was a fast read with an interesting plot and an ending that definitely left me wanting to read the second part. So guess what I'm going to do next?
