A review by i_hype_romance
A Love Hate Thing, by Whitney D. Grandison


I was provided with an ARC of this title from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a solid read and kept me engaged. I did roll my eyes at Nan, she was a tamer version of Cher a la Clueless, but less self-aware. Trice's character was far more interesting.
What I didn't like:
- The character development was lacking. The author fell back on stereotypical representations that were flat and did not resonate with the complexity of today's society.
- The drama and conflict were too manufactured.
- The enemies to lovers trope fell short because of the lack of character development.

Recommended for a light read for fans of The OC, The Hills, etc. Not recommended if you are looking for a read similar to those of Nicola Yoon or Angie Thomas.

2.5 Stars
