Product description

Product Description

From New York Times and USAToday bestselling author, Nicole Williams:

Nina can’t let herself fall in love with the man she’s going to marry. Both of them have experienced the sting and sham of love and have no intentions of falling victim to it twice. Love is expensive—hate is free.

Three years. A million dollars. A solution to both of their problems. They planned it all, from the story of their first meeting to the date of their divorce. Nothing could go wrong.

But what they didn’t consider was chemistry, and Nina and Max have no shortage of it. After too many near-kisses, Nina convinces herself that hating Max is better than loving him, and the more she gets to know this soon-to-be-husband of hers, the more she discovers just how very much she truly, madly, and deeply . . . hates him.

This isn’t a love story. This is the other kind.

I was introduced to Nicole Williams' writing a while ago when I fell in love with first the Crash series and then the Lost and Found series (my favourite of all time!). So unsurprisingly Hate Story was an automatic one click buy for me and again she has outdone herself in this funny, quirky, real love story.
Nina Burton is a very independent woman, who doesn't believe in love and refuses to let anyone help her. She's convinced that anyone who loves her always ends up leaving her so she keeps to herself. Despite working two jobs, she is cash poor and in order to save her grandmother's house has to make a crazy deal. She answers an ad for a fake marriage to a German man trying to get his Green card, for... wait for it ... $1 million dollars. However our leading man - Max Sturm is very hard to like... he has been burned in love badly so now he wants no part of it but as he does want to become a US citizen he needs to find himself a bride - albeit a fake one.
The banter, the sexual tension, the chemistry between the these two had me glued. From their initial meeting to them moving in together and beyond Hate Story was the kind of book you don't want to put down... light, funny and easy to read. Max's conviction to have Nina hate him was absolute, desperate to keep their relationship strictly professional, the more they recognised something in the other that made this marriage of convenience potentially blossom, the more Max fought to be the kind of man who was easy to hate. My favourite quote from the book 'A laugh rose up from my chest. I couldn’t help it. Nina kept me on my toes in every damn way a woman could. I loved every second of it, as miserable as it made me at times.'
Nina was the star of the show in my mind..

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse

The premise of this story is not new one. Nonetheless; Ms Williams managed to make this read especially hateful, downright lovable and totally unputdownable. I had no option but to put life on hold and do an all-nighter! So be warned; if you start reading it at stupid o’clock like me, you’ll most likely have to pay for the consequences the next day! This author never ceases to astound me with her writings. Her protagonists’ personalities and woeful stories quite honestly played havoc with my imagination. She made them come alive in such a way that at times I felt like I was intruding on their most personal space. In fact, talk about babbling to myself isn’t in it! If I gave advice to one, the other was getting a good talking to and vice versa! And did either of them listen to me? Nope!

“Better to worry too much and be pleasantly surprised than worry too little and get taken advantage of.”

As Nina Burton’s story panned out, she effortlessly got under my skin and I soon understood the predicament she was in. Solution’s seed was sown by Kate, her sassy and open-minded bestie who at all times, was in the background and had her back. I actually felt what Nina was about to do arguably debatable. Feasible, definitely. Morally correct…you’ll have to make your own minds up! Yet like Kate, I still thought if no-one was going to get hurt, this short-longish project of sorts might just work out regardless of Nina shying away from any kind of emotional relationship.

“You are clueless.”

“Yeah, and I’d like to remain clueless when it comes to that part of his anatomy, so scoot…”

Observing this young woman give as good as she gets and come over so strong blew the socks off me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Totally Annoyed at 25% 11 June 2017
By Jane - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Nicole Williams. SPOILER, I am at 25% in this book and I am so annoyed. I know authors love to portray a female character as an independent woman. What that usually means is that they are a total bitch. In this case the female lead is just difficult. Nina and Max have a business agreement. She is behaving like someone forced her into this agreement, when she did it of her own free will. Grow up! From the moment she officially met Max she has bucked him on everything. Authors do you realize how tiring it is to read a situation like this? I get why she doesn't have a boyfriend, she's over the top difficult. As far as I can tell, Max isn't a bad guy, nor is he an unusual guy. Nina behaves like she has a major chip on her shoulder. What prompted me to write a review before I finished the book is this. Max asked Nina what type of ring she wanted and she just went off on the deep end. She wants a fake diamond. She wants to hyphenate her name. Per her, "He'd already gotten me to agree to marry him. He wasn't going to get one more damn thing." What the hell! You have a business agreement with this man. You are behaving like you were forced into when you were not! When he agreed to the hyphen you "rolled your eyes. For being such a man, he could behave like a child." Okay Nina, are you the pot or kettle? I will now continue on with this book. I do hope it gets better and I can come back and add something good to my review. At this point in the book, I do not like Nina at all!

Nicole Williams is an "instant-click" and download author for me. I have enjoyed all of the books I have purchased from this author, and this book is no exception. I know that anyone who tends to flock to romance novels has read at least one "a marriage of convenience theme." With that being said, I believe Nicole was able to add some twists into this story that I have not seen from other authors (or at least maybe didn't appreciate at the time).
Nina is a character that is both charming, and insecure. Max is swoon worthy in not just his looks, but his actions. I know that a lot of reviewers will tell you that it's an instant hate-to-love scenario, and I will agree with them, but for different reasons. Max never hides from the reader that he is attracted to Nina. There is almost an underlying tone that he feels unworthy of her. He enjoys her wit, and maybe even appreciates the fact that she is beautiful in her own way (and she doesn't even realize it). It's more fear than hate that is his motivation for pushing her away. This is a man that is beautiful to look at, but feels like he is always lacking. Of course he is going to be an affectionate lover! That tends to be Nicole's theme, and I love that from her. This was definitely a light hearted read (especially in comparison to Collared), but I enjoyed it none the less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicole Williams once again delivered an emotional love story that leaves the reader swooning 31 December 2016
By shellbelle - Published on

Some say there is a fine line between love and hate. Both of these emotions can be all consuming. Hate Story by Nicole Williams is not a story of two strong emotions battling to overtake the other. It is a beautiful love story of two strong willed individuals on a journey of self discovery. Two people finding themselves as well as finding the perfect partner in life.

Nina agreed to marry Max so that he could obtain his green card for one million dollars. They have a three year contract that is perfectly synchronized to the very last detail. Max wants his green card so that he can remain in the United States the rest of his life. Nina needs the money to keep her grandmother's home. It's the perfect arrangement. Neither want a real marriage. Neither of them wants to fall in love. In fact, Nina doesn't believe in love. Love has let her down her entire life.

As Nina and Max embark on their arrangement they soon find they sincerely like one another. They find their attraction slowly building into something more. Something that isn't in the contract. Once they admit their true feelings it changes everything. Their contract is null and void.

Once they have broke the contract it has broken both of them. Now they have to face the real truths of their lives. They have to learn to deal with their real emotions. They have to choose their future.

Nicole Williams once again delivered an emotional love story that leaves the reader swooning. I highly recommend reading Hate Story by Nicole Williams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this one 27 December 2016
By Misha - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4.5 stars. I loved this one! Truthfully I haven't read many stories with this trope, although I know they are out there. I adored Nina's spunk. There is nothing better than a strong-willed heroine who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to stand up for herself. I thoroughly enjoyed her verbal sparing with Max. Although he tried to come across as a cold egomaniac, I was a Max fan from the beginning. Nina and Max's relationship certainly wasn't typical, but it still inspired the romantic feelings I love getting from a story. Hate Story was definitely another winner from Nicole Williams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hate vs. Love 30 December 2016
By alyberg - Published on

It's the same thing right?

Nina agrees to marry Max for a million dollars so Max to get his green card. Heard this story before? Well maybe, but Not quite like this!

This story is told from dual POV which is important because we see the development of feelings from both sides. Max is initially enamored with Nina while she takes a bit more time to warm up.

Max tends to shy away from the truth because Nina doesn't want to hear it. They each have their issues as they navigate dating, moving in, engagement, and impending marriage.

"And that was when I started to wonder if maybe it would be okay if I fell in love with Nina Burton. So long as it was pretend."

Will they be able to turn this hate story into happily ever after? ;)

Until next time,
