Blurb: To Have and To Hate by R.S. Grey
Marry a man I barely know to save my family from ruin.
It might’ve been simple, if my betrothed were anybody else.
On our wedding day, my husband-to-be arrived at the courthouse like a black cloud rolling over Manhattan. Walt didn’t crack smiles or pepper in pleasantries as we exchanged hollow vows in front of the judge.
His disdain for me was so palpable I assumed we’d walk out of that ceremony and resume our regularly scheduled programming. But then fate was like, Hold my beer. I got this.
In desperate need of help and with nowhere else to turn, I had no choice but to ignore a crucial rule in our contract: I shall only contact Mr. Jennings II in case of emergency. But hey, what’s a little fine print between husband and wife?
Turns out, Walt’s a stickler for legalese—I think it might be his love language. Oh, and his attitude at the courthouse wasn’t a put-on. My so-called husband is a jerk. He takes what he wants without giving any consideration to other people—specifically ME, his blushing, contractually-obligated bride!
I knew life with Walt would be no honeymoon, but a marriage of any sort should still come with a few standard guarantees:
To have and to hold.
For richer or poorer.
In sickness and in health.
But after experiencing Walt’s version of wedded bliss, I say let’s forget about all that lovey-dovey crap and just take me straight to death do us part.
Book Review: To Have and To Hate
Oh my god. I just loved To Have and To Hate so much. I kinda got bored this weekend and decided to start reading this on Saturday night. I just couldn’t put it down. Short story short, I finished it on Sunday night. What can I say? It was addictive!
This book reminded me so much of my parents, if I’m honest. You see, my mother is an artist and has this kind of outgoing personality. On the other hand, my father is a civil engineer with german genes. You get the picture right? However, although my dad can be a little moody at times, he’s like a huge teddy bear. Much like Walt is in this story and I definitely saw my mother in Elizabeth!
I loved their banter but you guys already know I’m a sucker for enemies to lovers stories. Elizabeth was free spirited and not spoiled at all given her upbringing. Walt might seem like a gigantic asshole at first, but he grows on you as you read along.
The more important thing is that this is a very funny and uplifting story. Perfect to get out of a reading slump or just you know, cheer you up!
