Synopsis (Goodreads):
One night. No one will know.

That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts-and the last names that made them enemies.

Until the night she didn’t show up.

Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want…so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?

Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence–and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.

Being together might be against all the rules…but being apart is impossible.
Thoughts on Hate to Want You: Oh, wow. I really liked this book. Livvy and Nicholas were the right type of messed up for me. Both of them are trying to guard their hearts while being drawn together again and again. As much as it hurt to see each other only once a year knowing they'd go their separate ways after that night, they couldn't say no.

Until Livvy did.

But staying away didn't help and, now that Livvy's back in town, things are even more complicated. Because they're both forced to face past hurts and a potential future and WOW. It gave me flaily hands.

Speaking of complicated...FAMILY DYNAMICS, MAN. On both sides. So much going on there. Absentee twin brothers and questions about deceased family members and siblings who are having a rough time figuring out where they fit in. Moms and aunts and sisters in laws. Actually, there's just one of each of those, so ignore my pluralizing there.

The point is there is A LOT going on here. Layers of characters and emotions and more flaily hands. And I kinda loved it.
