Hate Notes final ebook coverSynopsis

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 . . .

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have written another unique, sweet, sexy, emotional, and surprising standalone contemporary romance with Hate Notes, and I absolutely loved it! The storyline and characters were phenomenal, and I loved the authors’ writing style. Everything Vi and Penelope have co-written together has been a hit, and Hate Notes has been one of my favorites from them so far!

   The storyline was unique, refreshing, romantic, and I loved it so much. Vi and Penelope have never ceased to surprise me when it comes to the stories they create, but I always know they’ll be thoroughly addicting and entertaining. The story they created in Hate Notes was fantastic, and it immediately sucked me in. It has definitely been one of my favorite plots from them so far, and I was hooked from beginning to end. I loved the enemies-to-lovers/office romance aspect, among several others, and the push and pull between Reed and Charlotte was excellent. There were a few instances that I didn’t like as much, but overall I fell head over heels in love with Reed and Charlotte’s story.

   The characters were amazing, and even that description doesn’t do them enough justice. Reed Eastwood and Charlotte Darling were sweet, feisty, and stubborn, yet kindhearted to the core. I couldn’t help but fall head over heels in love with them and their story, and I loved every moment of the journey. I loved Reed and Charlotte’s personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how most of their relationship progressed throughout. It was a little slow at times for me, but everything was definitely worth it in the end. I loved reading Hate Notes from both Reed and Charlotte’s point of view, and nearly all of their banter and interactions with each other. I also loved a few of the secondary characters, and really enjoyed their addition to the story. Reed and Charlotte’s journey was special and unique, and I’ve certainly never read anything quite like it. It was everything I wanted and needed out of a Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward co-written novel, and I was overjoyed with the conclusion to Reed and Charlotte’s story.

   Hate Notes was another unique, sweet, sexy, romantic, and emotional standalone contemporary romance from Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, and I would HIGHLY recommend it! Vi and Penelope blew me away with Reed and Charlotte’s incredible and unforgettable love story, and I was extremely happy with the outcome. Vi and Penelope continue to be two of my top favorite authors, and when they collaborate together, it’s pure romance magic. I am very much looking forward to devouring more of their amazing stories!
