Love causes hurt, hurt causes hate.
I’ve learned this the hard way.
I fell for a guy who is made up of angry bones, a dark heart, and eyes that can see my soul.
One night changed everything.
Now when he looks into my heart, he pulls out the weakness and he uses it to his advantage.
He taunts me, breaks me down, and is trying to destroy my first year away at college.
So why can’t I stay away?
Why am I so drawn to the boy who used to be my friend—the guy who broke my heart, and the man who wants to destroy me?


All it took was one night for me to see Harper for what she really is—a fake. An imposter who cut me open, forced me to bare my soul, then tossed me aside without even sewing up my black heart.
She was the first girl to ever stir emotion inside of me.
It’s been a year, but I still feel the sting of what she did to me.
No matter how hard I try, I can’t escape her.
Now we are away at college and she thinks she’s still part of this group we’ve had since we were kids.
Little does she know, she’s been cut, and it’s her turn to feel the pain.

like hate

by rachel leigh

Let me get something out of the way before I start this...AXEL THORN belongs to me. I claimed him and Rachel Leigh even agreed...just head on over to her group Rachel's Ramblers and you will see the proof. I am also putting it out there RIGHT NOW that I have claimed Talon Porter too (he is Blakely Porter's little brother and his story is yet to be told so I am just getting a head start). So you ladies should all back off since I refuse to budge! 😛

Like Hate, the third book in the Redwood High series, was an angsty romance that gave me all the feels and left me utterly breathless as I eagerly inhaled all the words of this epic story. Rachel Leigh captivated every inch of my soul and was the puppet master pulling on all of my heartstrings as I found myself wholeheartedly enthralled by this bully romance. I really liked Like Gravity and loved Like You, but I freaking LIVED for every moment of Like Hate! This story managed to exceed all of my expectations and I was left absolutely stunned time and time again throughout. AND just when I thought I had it all figured out, the author left me even more on edge in anticipation.

The chemistry between Axel Thorn and Harper Ambrose was addictive and I am beyond O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with these two. Their complicated journey spoke to my soul and made me feel all the things. I ached all throughout my body as this storyline took control of my heart. Their journey towards happily ever after was nowhere near easy. They both fought hard for their love and it was a slow burn love hate kind of relationship...

Honestly this book is the BEST book in the Redwood High series (for now...fingers crossed there are more books to come) and I cannot wait for you all to get the full story of Axel and Harper. You may think you know what their story is, but you have got no freaking clue!
