Publisher's Summary

When I asked my best friend to run away with me at 16, I knew he’d say no.

He had football, an amazing family, and a happy home to go back to every day. So the night I snuck out of his bedroom window after hugging him goodbye, I’d accepted I’d probably never see him again.

Then we both wind up at Lindon University four years later.

I’m barely picking up the pieces of my life when the boy whose initials I used to doodle hearts around approaches me at work.

Aiden Griffith. Lindon U’s star tight end.

Still as attractive. Still as dedicated.

With rumors of him being drafted to the NFL coming to fruition, I know it’s only a matter of time before we have to say goodbye again. But he can’t seem to let me go no matter what I say, and I don’t think I want him to.

love the angst!

This was the perfect new adult read full of angst. I was completely wrapped up in Aiden and Ivy. I listened to the audio, and narration conveyed emotion. Dare You To Hate Me gave me all the feels!

Loved the story but not the narrator.

Wonderful story, but dual narration with a male and a female narrator would’ve been so much better!

Dare You to Hate Me

I wanted something different, and I came across this book not knowing the author or the narrator but thought why not?

I really enjoyed the characters learning Chaos’ struggles and how she is the way she is. How one boy took a chance and befriended her. That friendship becomes a lifeline, and yrs later just when she thought she would never see him again he walks back into her life.

I loved his reaction, how he does what he needs to, to make sure she is safe just like he had been doing all her life.
I just enjoyed the story and the narration. I needed something different and that is exactly what I got.

Good

This was a new author for me. The story is sweet and has a lot of emotional depth. But for some reason I had a hard time connecting with the main characters. I know they say in multiple places how they aren’t really romantic or good at saying sweet things. But I think that is what caused the story to feel a bit dry for me. I kept hoping for some kind of romantic gesture or profession of love and it just never happened. The story is well written…but a bit too much like real life for it to feel like the escape I was hoping for.
For example Aiden who is the hero of the story is lovable and likable from the very beginning. In this story he is the one who doesn’t have a lot of sexual experience and after their first time together he lets Ivy believe that he waited for her. But in his head the audience hears that it really was more circumstance than it was any kind of emotional attachment to her. And that really took away from the moment for me.
