He Hates Me Not (Hate & Love Duet, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

He Hates Me Not by Isabella Starling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

Once upon a time, there was a girl.

She hid secrets and scars behind a blinding smile.

Until I decided to confiscate that smile, watch it, trap it, own it.

She calls it an obsession, a madness, but she’s seen nothing.

The moment I noticed her, her fate was sealed.

Then she became a key player in my unhinged game.

Once upon a time, there was a girl, a liar, a fraud.


He Hates Me Not

Scorching hot sequel!

Wow! What an awesome sequel to the terrific stalker/captive romance book He Hates Me. From the very start I loved the obsession Jasper has with Georgie (his “Petal” as he calls her). And the fact that he found out everything about her by stalking her, breaking into her apartment, lurking in the shadows, following her, watching her sleep. He was so very creepy. But in truth he seemed to be right up her alley with her kinks and the fantasies she had.

When Jasper finally let her know he existed in He Hates Me and they became intimate, he seemed to be perfect for her until she discovered how he had been stalking her for such a long time. That is when she got scared. Though there were forces at work that were stranger than either of them ever expected when they discovered they had known each other as children when they were living in and orphanage.

The opening scene in this book is after Jasper, who now knows he is Alessio Vitallio, has kidnapped Georgina to Italy and the scene seems all sorts of dark and depraved, but in reality he is fulfilling one of her fantasies and she admits later how much she loves it. The intimate scenes between these two are kinky and very steamy. I give this book a heat index of five out of five flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥.

I really enjoyed how so many of the references in both of these books went back to their shared childhood even long before they discovered the fact that they were friends. Jasper from the first called Georgie his Petal like the daisies she used to pick apart when she was disguised as a four year old little boy Joseph and Jas was older and protected him. She would pull he petals asking if “he loves me” or “he loves me not“ referring to Jasper. Both kids needed each other back then when they had nobody else.

I don’t want to give to much away about this book, but though the romance is hot, Georgie is still a captive and no woman wants to be held anywhere against her will no matter how smokin’ hot the man you are with is. Also, Georgie is a Costa and Jasper is a Vitallio. The Costa’s murdered Jasper’s entire family and all their associates. Now Jasper is determined to get back at her father, Paulo and Lucio, not to mention to fact that Lucio still wants Paulo’s heir killed so he can take over the Costa family. So much to keep these two apart.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
