Title: As Long As You Hate Me
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 3, 2017
Blurb
Kara
High
school sweethearts. What a load of bull.
He might
have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing
my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the
masses to digest.
Seven
years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his
music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to
see the person again. Especially when they ripped out your heart and made
hamburger meat with it.
But when
a chance encounter ends up going viral, I’m tied to him in a way I’ve always dreaded.
And the last person on earth I’d want to spend an hour with, much less a
lifetime, makes me an offer I can’t refuse. I might just be desperate enough to
take it.
Dean
The girl
in the song is real. And she’s made me a rich man.
I’ve
been dedicating choruses to her for a decade, she’s the muse she never wanted
to be. Off of our love, I’ve become famous … and a complete egomaniac.
When
another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the
media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching
orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good
guy.
Coming
face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her
back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I
rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.

REVIEW
Rating: 4 Groupie Stars
For the first time I am really stuck on what I thought about about a Carrie Aarons book.

Dean. Dean, Dean, Dean. Self centered jerk.  About 30% in he really pushed me to the edge…to the point I set the book down and walked away.  For a long time.  The only thing that brought me back was a love for Ms. Aaron’s writing. I adore her style of writing and i was hoping that she would be able to draw me back in.  She did.

Kara was a little…wishy washy for me too. I actually wanted to tell at her a few times.  She was confident and strong and then you would blink and she resembled a doormat.  A little inconsistent for my taste.

This was a good read but my distaste for the male lead almost ruined the book for me.  I would say that the ability to make someone feel that strongly about a book proves that the writer is fantastic. But in this case it almost feels like my buttons for pushed too often. Even though there were parts that I didn’t like I wpuld still give this one a solid 4 stars.
