htn cover

Fresh out of a failed engagement, Olivia Hales is in dire need of a fresh start. Tired of being the charming and accommodating girl that always gets stomped on, she’s determined to change her outlook on life.

When she finds her dream job in a small town in California, she thinks she’s finally found her place in life. That is, until she meets her new neighbor.

Roman Banks.
Moody. Foul-mouthed. Jerk.
And the hottest man on the planet.

At a sprawling six foot five, he was coldly distant and physically intimidating. Not only was her new neighbor a God that was good with his hands, he was also a grade-A jerk. Trapped on the same street, sharing the same space together, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous, never-ending game of insults and pranks that result in the destruction of two perfectly good homes.

The tension between them is as thick as the walls of their houses are thin. Roman’s touch burned like fire even when his words were ice, and both of them will stop at nothing to make the others life hell.

In the midst of the pranks and the hate they harbor for each other, Olivia slowly pulls back the layers of the man next door and finds herself consumed with wanting to fix him and his past. When both enemies start to catch feelings for each other, Olivia finds herself hiding her own secrets, not wanting to lose another man in her life.

Lines are drawn. Strict rules put into place. But that doesn’t stop Olivia from wanting to save the quiet, broody man next door.

They say you’re supposed to love thy neighbor, but that was the furthest emotion she felt when thinking about Roman. Hate was all there was to their relationship. At the very least, that’s what she tried to tell herself.

Hate Thy Neighbor is a full length enemies to lovers standalone.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hate Thy Neighbor is S.M Soto’s newest enemies to lovers romance. I love her books so I didn’t read the synopsis so all I knew was that it was about neighbors who hated each other and would end up in bed together. Lol. I love a good enemies to lovers romance and this was FANTASTIC. Oh, the hate…

Olivia needed a fresh start so she packed up and moved six hours north to Campbell, CA. She was excited to be on her own. To live her life to the fullest. She bought a fixer-upper and landed a job as a Veterinarian Assistant. She even found that she lives next to a hot AF man who rode a motorcycle. She wasn’t looking for love but nothing wrong with ogling the neighbor, right? Then she meets him and he is a complete asshole. She doesn’t know what she did to piss him off, the rest of the neighbors get his smiles while she gets his bad attitude. She wasn’t one to back down so if he wanted to be a jerk then she can be one too. Fuck him. If he wanted war, then he will get one.

Roman hated her from the moment he saw her by her moving truck. And when she shows up at his door with cake? The hate was all the more real. He knew he should stay away from her but when she is everywhere, he can’t ignore her. He tries. He really does but she keeps getting under his skin. Asking him questions about himself. Telling him about herself. He doesn’t do this. He has plans and she will not be in the way of them. She thinks he is an asshole, well, she has no idea.

Oh man!! These two! Talk about enemies. The pranks. The looks. The tension. You can cut it with a knife. You can feel it through the words on the page. It’s strong. It’s sweet. It’s a slow burn. A fire exploding. I loved it all. It’s not easy but it’s so worth it. I laughed. I got hot and bothered. I cried. I swooned. I cried some more.

P.S. My grandparents raised my dad and uncles in Campbell! I lived there for a few years when I was a child and loved it. I still visit the small suburb town. It’s adorable.

💞 Make sure to get the bonus epilogue!


“God, he’s still glaring at you. I can’t tell if he wants to kill you or bang you.”

“Most likely the former. Definitely not the latter.”

“A guy who looks that good? I wouldn’t mind letting him do both.”

“Hey, Roman, listen, what happened back at the bar, about starting a war—”

I turn on her with a cold smirk. “Oh, no, sweetheart. This means war, baby, and there’s no backtracking now.”

“Anyone ever tell you you’re kind of an asshole?”
