As Long As You Hate Me

Kara High school sweethearts. What a load of bull.He might have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the masses to digest.Seven years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to see the person again. Especially when they ripped out y...

    "We fit like two puzzle pieces in the same box, the two of us surrounded by hundreds of other kids at Elm Hill High School but only meant for each other." Thrumming with an undeniable sexual tension, Carrie Aarons will keep you glued to the page. AS LONG AS YOU HATE ME—her new contemporary romance—had me on a roller coaster of emotions... I laughed, I wanted to punch people, Dean & Kara specifically, and at the end, I fell in love. Before Ho...

    As Long as you Hate MeBy: Carrie Aarons4 StarsWhen it comes to second chance romance books, they are an automatic read for me. Love to see how two people can be so broken that they split up and then reading about them building themselves back up. As the case with Dean and Kara. High School sweethearts nothing could separate them. Promises were made, firsts were shared… Dean and Kara saw nothing outside their love for each other no matter what w...

    ➳ Rate: 4,8 / 5 starsRock star romance? Hmm, yes please! I love me some rock-stars. I feel like I have loved every single one that I've read. Emphasis on the feel, because I'm sure that's not true. I just simply cannot think of one right now. Anyway, rocks-star romances are one of my favorite tropes to read and I was delighted to read this one!And it was everything I thought it would be! Filled with angst, sexual tension, a little drama (it com...

    Wow – I have to admit that the author did a really great job in transferring the title of the book to the feelings of the reader. “As long as you Hate me” really made me approach my thoughts on book ratings in a new way. Carrie Aarons created a setting where I found myself actually disliking the leading characters so much but at the same time thinking that the title an plot could not have been more fitting. Usually for a book to be rated hi...

    I’m such a huge fan of this Author work. All her books always draw you in and this one wasn’t different. I felt all types of emotions while reading this one. Dean and Kara were high school sweethearts that had everything going for them until Dean made it big in Hollywood and became the “it” musician. He made a living pouring his love for her and their romance into hitmakers. After Kara left him he turned into the typical Hollywood A-liste...

    4.5 Hearts I have read many of Carrie’s books and I love that each one has a unique storyline. I just know that I will laugh, tear up, and get angry when I open one of her books. I definitely did with As Long As You Hate Me. Seven years. It’s been seven years since Kara’s heart was broken by her high school sweetheart. Since that day, she has avoided everything Dean Jacobs. It’s not easy when he is splattered all over the Internet, magazi...

    Carrie Aarons has again blown me away with As Long As You Hate Me! This is such wonderfully written second chance at love story, that had me feeling the heartbreak of betrayal and miscommunication. Once I started reading, I found it difficult to want to put my kindle down. That's because with each turn of the page, the love, hate, anger, hurt and the sexual tension pulled me in and I started caring about the characters.Dean Jacobs always had a dr...

    This review will be a bit challenging for me to write because honestly I just didn't like this book much, but in the same breath I couldn't stop reading it needing to see the outcome of Kara and Dean.This story begins with Kara and Dean in high school and so in love, like notebook gag worthy love and then we skip to present day years later to a cynical angry bitter Kara and a just rude nasty jerk Dean seeing each other again. This is where I was ...

    As Long as You Hate Me by Carrie Aarons“Second Chance, 4 stars”I have a soft spot for second chance romance, especially high school sweethearts. But then again that could be because my husband is mine. Kara and Dean are no exception. Together they were perfect but sometimes life and circumstances can tear even the strongest of couples apart, much like Kara and Dean.Dean has music flowing through his blood. He’s made his name and fortune off...

    I really like Carrie Aaron's stories and this one was no exception. This book was a relatively quick and easy read, but I couldn't put it down and just wanted to keep reading to see what was going to happen between the two main characters. Kara and Dean used to be best friends at school and were together. They had all their firsts together and were high school sweethearts. But then Deans career took off and Kara was left behind. They've not seen ...

    As Long As You Hate Me is a quick, second chance romance as well as a rocker romance. It has everything you would expect in a rocker romance: sex, glamour, and heart melting lyrics. Those lyrics really got to me.Dean Jacobs is a stereotypical rock star with good looks, talent, arrogance, and plenty of women. He’s easy to like, despite the arrogance and sleeping around. He’s never forgotten his high school sweetheart; she’s the muse for ever...

    Kara and Dean's story was fun and easy to read. I always fall for a second chance romance, and the prologue definitely had me intrigued. I think we all have that what if moment when we see our exes, and Kara does what I would love to do to mine ;)Kara is the girl that falls in love with her high school sweet heart and is completely crushed when it doesn't work out. Dean is the bad boy, rocker musician that moves away but never really gets away fr...

    4 .5 stars I really enjoyed this second chance romance, and with it involving a Rockstar, I was doubly in my element as they are both 2 of my favourite things to read. This book was about a lost love that really shouldn't have been lost in the first place. If only they would have spoken or confronted each other, things would have been so different. The Characters are great and although Dean is a Rockstar and has more money than sense, be is down ...

    This story started it out by being promising and the first 25% I was intrigued by the storyline but then after it somewhat fizzled out for me. I read it because it was not a lengthy story and it was still good. The last 25% became for entertaining. Dean returns after being gone for over 7 years. He returns with some of his intentions not very noble. Kara as been made an offer she can’t refuse but will the offer turn into something more? The sto...
