Hate Notes final ebook cover

SYNOPSIS:

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.

Something blue.

I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”

Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.

The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.

He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after.

But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined.

Something new.

But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .

Kara's Review

Hate Notes is the newest masterpiece by one of my favorite writing duos, Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I don’t know how these wonderful women keep writing better and better stories. The characters are outstanding, the storyline unique and emotional. I found myself reading faster and faster to see what was going to happen but then forcing myself to slow down because I wanted to savor every word and I didn’t want it to ever end! Charlotte is brokenhearted over her own broken engagement only to find the most romantic note inside another wedding dress. After a little searching, she finds the owner of the note and he’s gorgeous! But obviously his story didn’t have a happy ending either. Reed must be so romantic and swoony and lovely to have written such a note. Right? Well, not exactly. As fate would have it, Reed’s is now Charlotte’s boss and he’s nothing like she thought. He’s condescending, jerky and obnoxious. At first. Then Charlotte notices parts of that sweet, romantic man hiding behind something inside of Reed. But Reed doesn’t let his guard down very often. It’s as if he uses his jerkiness to push her away. They have a very interesting relationship. Yes, they are boss and assistant, but they are also both stalking each other and revealing secrets. It’s hilarious and heart-warming at times, but Reed keeps pushing. Charlotte is like no other woman he’s ever met. She’s gorgeous, fun and smart, but she’s also nuts! She has the most amazing outlook on life. If something pushed her down, she gets right back up, dusts herself off and learns from it. She wants to live life to its fullest and enjoy every minute. Reed wishes he had the luxury of doing that himself. Charlotte has a F**k It List of things she wants to do! And she inspires Reed to create a Bucket List. They can’t keep their lists private, so together they form a friendship to start marking things off their lists. Reed wants Charlotte. He wants her body, her soul and her heart, but he just can’t go there again. Charlotte tries every tactic to get through to Reed, but he’s not falling for any of them. The attraction and chemistry are there, but he’s holding back. Can Charlotte show Reed that they are worth the risk? Will Reed realize Charlotte is The One before it’s too late? I LOVED this story! It’s one of my favorites of the year. If I didn’t already believe in fate, love and destiny, Reed and Charlotte would have convinced me. Everything happens for a reason and these two were meant to be together. There was more at work here than mere Fate. Just meeting Charlotte unlocked something inside Reed. They were destined to both end up where they did and you just can’t stop destiny. You can fight it. You can push it away. You can even ignore it. But, it will catch you and it will show you the way. In the end you just have to trust in yourself, your love and the person you’re meant to be with. Charlotte made Reed a better man. Reed showed Charlotte who she wanted to be. Their love story is epic! It’s filled with humor, sexiness, attraction, sadness, loss, fear, hope and longing. I laughed, cried, shook my head, rolled my eyes, cheered and cried some more. Charlotte is a hot mess, but she’s fierce, loving, funny and determined. Reed is sexy in his bow ties and suspenders, but he has so many layers and I enjoyed watching them all get peeled away. Iris is the greatest grandma! I want to be her when I grow up! The ending was perfect and I had to read it more than once through the tears streaming down my face. I’m sad their story is over, but I’m so thrilled I got to experience it!

 

Dear Charlotte: Do you know why squirrels love you so much? Because you’re NUTS! Reed.

 

“What do you need, Reed?” Although I was annoyed, I also couldn’t help myself. Unintentional rhymes were just funny.

“You just amused yourself with a rhyme, didn’t you?”

 

“Darling as in my last name, with a bid D  not a little d, right? That’s ok, I like big Ds.” She did not just say that. I bet you do, Charlotte. And in another life, maybe I’d give it to you.

 

Reed’s smile was a gift. It was rare, but when it happened, it totally consumed me for as many seconds as it lasted.

Sandra's Review

Hate Notes is Vi and Penelope’s next breathtaking, and fun standalone novel. Not surprising if you follow my reviews, I did not read the synopsis. All I knew was that these kickass authors wrote it and notes were involved. Oh…and handsome man in a suit. Yummy!
It all started with a wedding dress. Charlotte had no idea that when she saw the blush feathered beauty that it would change her life. One act of fate turns into another and soon she has a new amazing job with a wonderful woman named Iris. What she didn’t expect was that her grandson, Reed was the man who unknowingly gave her hope when she found a note in the wedding dress from a man who loved the bride to not be. Running into him at his place of business wasn’t their first encounter however. And once again it wasn’t a pleasant experience. He was nothing like the man she though the would be. He wasn’t Prince Charming. He was more like Mr. Stick Up his Ass who thought she was a lunatic.
Reed did not want her here. Not in his building. Not in his space. Not in his head. He thought was crazy with a capital C. But she wasn’t going anywhere. Not if his grandmother had anything to do with it. And she did. He didn’t know what she was thinking when she hired her to be the family assistant. That was until he spend more time with her. She was smart, dedicated, and beautiful inside and out. Yet. Still crazy. She even made a Fuck-It list. He had no idea where she came from but she made him feel alive and that was why he needed to forget wanting her. In every imaginable way. He put his walls up over the last year and he had no plans of bringing them down.
Charlotte was on a mission. To get that stick out of her boss’s ass. She saw the way he looked at her. She felt their connection. He might have thought she was loony but she saw his smiles. He tried to hide them but she saw them. She knew it was fate meeting him and now she was going to prove it to him. Can she bring his walls down? Can she show him that love is worth it? That they were meant to be together.
I ABSOLUTELY fucking loved this book. Charlotte is a trip and I love her. She is a ball of positivity and energy. So unlike Reed. The workaholic. She brings out his funny side though and even when he is being an ass, I loved him. Their banter is hilarious. The sexual tension is hot. It’s a slow burn and I loved that. It made their story even more beautiful and hilarious.
Overall…I didn’t want it to end. It’s a fun and emotional rollercoaster of a story. I, both cried and laughed hard. Got hot and bothered and laughed some more. It’s a story I will never forget.
P.S. Air typing is fun.
Quotes:
“I see you learned a lot about professionalism during your time at Deez Nuts.”
“Screw you.”
“Whoa. Someone needs a ‘Backspace’ key.”
“Why are you so curious about me?”
Her eyes seared through mine. “Because from the moment I met you, I knew you weren’t the person you were portraying.”
All that pent-up crazy probably translated into one hell of a firecracker in bed.
