The Hate Vow (Quicksilver Book 1) Kindle Edition
Eric de Vries. Looks like millions. Worth billions.
But to keep his money, this wayward heir needs a wife.
And of all the women in the world, he chooses me.
Too bad I've hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away.
The guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel toiletries.
Been there. Done that.
Still...what would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you wear the dress?
Fake a smile for the man who broke your heart?
Or would you run far, far away?
Yeah, that's what I thought.
I'll see you at the church.

I get that she had walls tighter than Fort Knox to hide behind but Jane wasn’t likable or relatable to me. At 20% I struggled to continue to read this book hoping, praying things would get better but after a while, I couldn't stomach putting up with Jane for the sake of a HEA eventually.
Marrying the man that broke your heart for 20 millions…. Why not? Going up against his family was hard especially the harsh bullying and rudeness of each and every one of them. When there are no more secrets to share, or so Jane thought she is left speechless standing in the church wondering what the hell just happened.
The Hate Vow leaves you on a small cliff hanger wondering what happens next.
While this story personally wasn’t for me, it most definitely could be for you.

I think it's going to take me a while to get my head around this book. It has to be one of the most brilliantly written books I have ever read. Nicole French is a master of the written word in my opinion.
The thing that stands out the most to me is how well all the characters are written, how they interact with each other, but ultimately what they all bring to the story. I thought that Jane brought the most to the story. I loved her sass. From her inner thoughts to what actually came out of her mouth, I was enthralled with every word. At times it just seemed that Eric was just along for the ride, letting her be the star of the show or book in this case.
This is quite a large book, but it felt like it took me two seconds to finish it, I was that engrossed.
Bring on the next book.
Eric and Jane have a history. In college they were friends, then lovers, then they were not. Going separate ways for the most part, yet still in contact through mutual friends. When Eric finds Jane to make an offer that is hard to refuse, the pair embark on a journey of twisted emotions and high sexual tension.
Jane is an awesome character. She is quirky, headstrong and not ashamed of it. She does have her insecurities, which makes her realistic and endearing. Eric seems to enjoy Jane's strong personality. He has a past that Jane slowly learns about throughout this book, which helps her understand him. I was left frustrated on numerous occasions with this pair! I loved their to and fro banter and watching feelings develop into more.
As I started to get comfortable with the plot of The Hate Vow, ready to give a solid 5 stars, the author threw a curve ball. This plot twist, that I DID.NOT.SEE.COMING turns The Hate Vow into 5+ stars for me. The surprise development has me waiting with bated breath for the next instalment, due for release in June 2019.

First, there were a few niggling things that made it feel like it dragged. It was very repetitive. The first half was a lot of the same stuff repeated, first from Jane then again from Eric’s point of view.
Then there was the author’s fondness for flashbacks. They really broke the flow and slowed the pace. Plus they continued throughout, including really short flashbacks that did nothing to move the plot forward. There’s even flashbacks for events only 24 hours before. I found it a very dull way to tell a story, rather than show it in real time.
Anyway, I trudged on and the main reason behind that was the main characters. Their chemistry was sizzling, and their relationship an angst ridden rollercoaster of heated arguments mixed with burning up the bed sheets, and a bit of kink thrown in for good measure.
Eric and Jane are like chalk and cheese. He’s preppy, rich, and privileged, while she’s half Korean, makes unique fashion choices, and is struggling to pay her student loans. Jane has a caustic sense of humour, and I think some readers may call her a pill. She’s no nonsense and ballsy, yet hides a soft centre. I couldn’t help but like her. Eric on the other hand was chill and almost blasé. They clash constantly, and at times deliberately misunderstand one another. There were moments when I wanted to hit them both over the head, immediately followed by cooing and gushing when they got all loved up and mushy.
There were things about Eric I didn’t understand. Why did he stick two fingers up at his entire family, then suddenly feel he owes it to them to save their inheritance? Then there’s the strange subplot involving some secret society he’s a part of which leads us into the cliffhanger ending. I hope we get answers in the second book, but I’m so conflicted I’m not jumping into it straight away.
Anyway, back to the question: Did I enjoy this book? Yes, despite the slow start and storytelling niggles. Eric and Jane themselves were enough to keep me interested. They did intrigue me and I want to know how it ends for them. This is a story that could have been cut to improve the pace, but the sizzling heat and tension masks those niggles to keep the reader engaged.
The plot twist ruined it for me. I felt it building throughout the book and hated it from the beginning and for me personally, I did not appreciate the dimension it added to the book. It felt like the author was trying too hard to make this book different that they decided to come up with this ridiculous twist and ruin the story.
I am def going to read books 2 and 3 but am waiting until I re-join KU as I £5.99 and £6.99 is a bit too pricey for me.
There are secrets which slowly creep out. This is a book that takes its time, it's patient but when it delivers its cracking. Yes I found it predictable but I loved every word regardless.
My only criticism is that you have to wait for the second part.
I want to tell you more but it would spoil the experience.Definitely worth a look.
