Hate: to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward.
Scarlet Jennings, the preacher’s daughter who lived across the street, was a royal, uptight pain in my ass. When she looked at me, she saw a college quarterback asshole with rocks for brains, but she didn’t have a single word for what was happening between us.
When we were forced to ride together every single day that summer, there was definitely some dislike going on. Extreme hostility was a given, considering that we were spending so much time together in close quarters.
One night of bed-breaking, body-shattering, lose-your-voice-from-screaming passion had surprised us both, but it was only just the beginning…
Simply put, I found the book to be sweet. Ya, it was pretty steamy….Leo, even though he apparently had horrible luck with the ladies, was pretty sweet and smooth. It was endearing.
Leo, the boy next door, sexy Quarterback…Scarlet, the girl next door, Preachers daughter. The two appear to hate each other, but I dare say hate is too strong a word. They both like the other, lust after the other, but for their own reasons, never approached it. Until one day Leo basically says fuck it and goes for it. I loved it! I liked that there was no BS angsty crap. It was just these two, hanging out, developing feelings, and being there for each other. Again, super sweet. I loved it!
