#Hater by Cambria Hebert

Title: #Hater (The Hashtag Series #2)
Author: Cambria Hebert
Release: January 12, 2015
Genre: NA Contemp/College Romance

It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.

It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked itright in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.

The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone. Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it.

And we’re happy.

Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me.

As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.

I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.

Oh Romeo my Romeo, how I love you Romeo. AHHHH!! I LOVED this book! #Hater is the second book in the Hashtag Series. You need to read #Nerd first so if you haven't make sure you do that. #Hater picks up a couple weeks after #Nerd ends. I couldn't wait to dive into this to see where Romeo and Rimmel's story went. I loved their story; the jock that is the most popular guy on campus and the nerd that everyone looks past. 

If you thought you loved Romeo in the first book you will love him even more in #Hater. SWOON! Romeo is the perfect book boyfriend. He is so sweet and the love he has for Rimmel is amazing. He truly does love her. She doesn't have to change a single thing about herself, he loves her for her. 

Rimmel is just as loveable in this book as she was in the first. I felt bad for her though because she is put through hell. We get to dive into her past a little more in this book and my heart broke watching her tell her story.

Zach. Oh how I loathe that man. He is the biggest douche bag. He is evil. Pure evil. He is also crazy. Full on bat shit crazy. I don't want to give anything away but I promise he will make your skin crawl.

Now let's talk about Mrs.Anderson. I was leery of her after what happened in #Nerd. I didn't fully trust her but then I thought maybe just maybe she was coming around. You will have to read #Hater to find out if she did come around or if my gut was right to be leary of her.

 I wavered between 4 and 4.5 stars and the last page of the book pushed me to 4.5. My jaw dropped and I gasped. I NEVER saw it coming. Usually I can predict what is going to happen but nope, not this time. HOLY CRAP. I NEED #PLAYER NOW!! March can't get here soon enough because I HAVE to know what happens. I HAVE to know how Romeo and Rimmel's story finishes. 

I highly recommend this series because it has swoon worthy characters and a story you just can't help but love. 

“It’s not your job to protect me, Romeo.”

“You’re wrong.” I said, my voice leaving no room for argument. “It is and I will.”

“You’re my boyfriend. Not my bodyguard.” Her words were annoyed and I felt something behind them. But before I could question her she kept going. “He was just being a jerk. I tried to walk away and he stopped me. If I hadn’t fought against him I probably wouldn’t have a bruise at all.”

I felt my eyes narrow as I spoke dangerously low. “Are you saying it’s your fault Zach treated you this way?”

Letting her take any responsibility for this was something I would not allow.

She sighed. “I’m saying your being a drama queen.”

I laughed and raised my eyebrow. “Do I look like a woman to you?”

A fine pink blush spread across her cheekbones. “No.”

I took her face in my hands and tilted it up so I could stare into her eyes. “Listen to me. My reacting to someone putting their hands on you is not me being dramatic, it’s me loving you.”

“Oh, Romeo,” she sighed my name and my cock hardened.

I pulled her into my chest and wrapped my arms around her. “Being an asshole is just part of my charm, baby.” I said matter of fact, unable to keep the smile out of my voice. “This is just me loving you.”

“You love real good,” she mumbled against my chest, pushing a little closer.

I palmed the back of her head, holding her tight. It scared me how much I loved her sometimes. Just like the anger I’d felt just moments ago scared me. It was raw and intense.

It almost bordered on hate.

And all of it. Every single flame of that animosity was directed at one man.
