Summary:
There’s a fine line between love and hate, so fine that you don’t know you’ve lost balance until it’s too late.
I’m not sure exactly when I lost my balance, all I know is that he was to blame.
Dane Winters.
The boy who’d spent most of his life hating me for reasons I never understood.


My review:
The funny thing was that I wasn't planning to read this. It was kind of a random choice and I ended up loving it.

 It was March break and I was bored at home. I couldn't read any of my books in my TBR pile. So, I said I'll just look for a nice contemporary romance on Amazon. I saw this book on the first page, I read the summary and I was hooked. I love "love, hate" relationships, so I purchased it on my Kindle app. 

"There's a fine line between love and hate, so fine that you don't know you've lost balance until it's too late."
What I really loved about this book was  obviously the relationship between Dane and Kennedy. Their fights/arguments were very entertaining and funny, I caught myself laughing a few times. I also loved how their love story progressed throughout the story. Kennedy learned how to toughen up. I was hooked from the beginning until the end because I still didn’t know why  Dane was acting like the way he was around Kennedy. He hated her for no reason and it got me saying like dude? What the hell is your problem? I hated it him in some scenes because he was such a jerk. 

"Dane Winters could never be my home."
Both main characters had their own best friends and they really leave you with so many questions it was annoying... in a good way! Reid and Jade were inseparable one day and next thing you know they're fighting like cats and dogs. Don't worry though, they have their own book. ;)


I gave this book a 5/5 stars because I loved it. I have to be honest that it wasn’t perfect because I got annoyed at some point, but overall it was really entertaining and it was worth the read.


About the author:
I'm 23 years old & the ultimate Book Brat :) Coffee & Books are my drugs of choice, neither of which will be kicked to the curb any time soon! I go through a book a day & when I'm not reading I'm working on my next novel :)I'm a sucker for New Adult Contemporary Romance with a whole lot of sexy thrown in & my number one rule is I won't read a book unless it has a happy ending! I also have the unhealthiest obsession with the South,and I don't mean my home country of South Africa - I mean cowboys, pick up trucks, sexy as sin Southern accents, cowboy boots and barefoot bluejean nights! One day, I will live in Alabama & I will have my own Indie publishing house - my philosophy is if your dreams don't scare you they're not big enough :)
