SOMETHING LIKE HATE by Harloe Rae
Release date: June 10th
Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-lovers/Billionaire Romance/Office Romance
A sizzling all-new enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Harloe Rae where a billionaire CEO battles against a snarky redhead who has her own agenda.
“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but I’ve never been a good liar.”
That’s his initial offense against me.
Don’t worry—there’s plenty more where that came from.
Landon Winters is colder than his last name suggests.
Cruel and callous too.
I’m certain he finds pleasure in making others miserable.
He’s a billionaire by his own making—not satisfied with simply inheriting a white collar and silver spoon.
Landon’s arrogance is so thick I could choke on the stench alone.
He’s also responsible for gouging a jaded chip into my shoulder.
The only saving grace is never having to see him again.
Wishful thinking is a fickle beast.
My boss just announced that Landon is my latest client.
I’ll need to impress him or kiss my promotion goodbye.
Either way, this is my chance to get even.
Revenge is all I see.
The price for redemption is steep.
Landon will pay a small fortune in humiliation.
And I’ll walk away filthy rich in vindication.
Add to Goodreads:
“So, neither of us is willing to surrender.” His slight detour in topic raises my hackles. He could derail our discussion for hours with a few misplaced words.
I roll my neck, a few joints popping with the stretch. “I guess that leaves us to finally getting down to business.”
“It’s about damn time you’ve warmed up to my idea.” He reclines in his chair with a moan any porn star would envy.
“Oh, please, stop.” A retching sound yanks from my throat.
“Why should I? You’re quite gorgeous, Savannah.”
“Quit flirting with me.” My tone borders on begging.
“Why?” A curious sparkle twinkles in his gaze as he repeats the question.
“Only because you like me hitting on you.”
I make another show of choking on bile. “You’ll never get me to admit such a despicable thing.”
“A new challenge? I accept.”
Why does it feel like I just signed my own resignation notice? Veering this conversation onto professional ground is my only chance to salvage his account. “Ditto, which is precisely what your demands are to me. Did you get my emails with the listings?”
Landon scowls. “Yes, but that can wait.”
“It should take precedence. I’m prepared to accomplish actual progress on finding you a property. That’s why I’m here, remember?”
“Terms and conditions change by the minute.”

I truly love the enemies-to-lovers trope and was so happy to be approved to receive a copy of an ARC.
This is the first book I’ve read by Harloe Rae, but I have to admit, it took me a while to get used to her writing voice.
I really liked the premise of the story, but the banter between the protagonists was just so toxic, I thought I was going to lose a part of my soul just reading the schemes and lengths the characters were willing to go to in order to one-up the other.
I had to put the book down for a couple of days just to convince myself to give it a second chance and see where the author was going with the story.
I’m glad I did because it was definitely looking like it was going to be a DNF for me.
I absolutely HATED Landon Winters!
He was cruel, cold and conniving and the author did a fantastic job of making the reader hate him.
But, the reader doesn’t know how diabolical he is until he deals his final blow to Savannah Simon that has her leaving him almost broken.
What you have to understand is that Savannah is no push-over. She’s strong, smart, funny, and snarky.
She gives as good as she gets, but Landon is just so broken that he crosses a line that should never be crossed.
I’m glad I finished it, and now that I know what to expect in Ms. Rae’s stories I look forward to reading more of her work.
