From Wall Street Journal & USA Bestselling Author M. Robinson comes Hated You Then, book 1 in the Love Hurts Duet. 
Release Date: September 17th
A coming of age, enemies to lovers, contemporary romance filled with angst and all the feels. 
I couldn’t remember a time before her… Harley Jameson.
Before she owned me.
Hated Me.
Needed me.
Before I hated her…
Things were simple.
We had an understanding.
Bully. Fight. Hate. It’s what we did.
Mind. Body. Soul. It’s how we loved.
I thought nothing would ever change that, until everything did.
She was mine.

Always had been.
Always would be.
Nothing altered that.
Not how much I hated her.
Not how much she hated me.
Especially, not how much I hated…


That I LOVED her.

My Review
This one is a little tough for me to review. It’s tough because it says it’s a standalone duet, but I think to fully understand Harley and Jackson’s relationship, you should read the Pierced Hearts duet. Or even further back, start with the Good Ol’ Boys series and work your way through. I honestly think that’s the way to gain a whole picture about these two, and all of the interconnected characters that are in their lives, especially since the majority of the story is set to when they were kids. I will admit, some of the suggestive language that the characters used was a bit cringy at times, because of their ages. If they were older, I wouldn’t have had an issue with it.  As an enemies to lovers story? The author definitely got the enemies down perfect. These two despise each other with a passion. The pranks, the insults, there is no love lost between them. Which makes me wonder how she is going to pull a romance out of these two in the second book, but if anyone can do it, it’s M Robinson.
