Hate Notes by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

This book guys. THIS BOOK! I have raved about it incessantly on Instagram and now need to sit down and put my thoughts to paper. First of all, these ladies KILL IT!. Second, they take something that hits very close to home for me and put feelings into words.

I love stories that have a plot driven story. This wasn't just a romance, it was amazing. It was emotional and riveting page after page. I fell in love with the idea of the story before I even read it. I am a HUGE fan of second chances and this one was a wicked twist on that trope that we all know and love. But really, this was a story about letting yourself love and finding love in return. Go for it. Make a list, and complete it line by line.

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story of secondhand hearts and second chances… It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed. He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after. But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined. Something new. But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .
