Hate Me Today by Katheryn Kiden **Rafflecopter**

Title: Hate Me Today (#3 Save Me Series)
Author: Katheryn Kiden
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: June 18th

I hate her but I’d rather make her life a living hell than not play for a crowd anymore. Hate is a four letter word. So is life. So is love. Each one requires passion to make it worth it. Jason Jackson has lived his whole life fueled with hate. Hate for himself. Hate for his family. Hate for the one person he despises but is stuck on tour with. All he wants to do is rock the crowd and keep his head down, but it seems like every time he turns around, she’s doing something else to piss him off. What happens when everything he thought he knew turns out to be wrong? For the first time in my entire life, I’m taking control and not even Jason can get in my way. Vanessa Knox knows all about life being too short. She refuses to let anyone stand in the way of what she wants. That is, until what she wants is something she knows she shouldn’t have. It could break her worse than being sick ever had a chance to. Nothing she ever does seems to be right. However, that doesn’t stop her from doing it. Sometimes the best things are the one you thought would be the worst. Hate leaves you wondering why, love leaves you wanting more and life leaves you waiting.

Vanessa Knox is the next hot starlet on the country music scene. Embarking on her first solo tour, she is both excited and nervous to be taking this monumental step in her professional life. Too bad she has to deal with her super-hot bassist, Jason and his attitude for the entire trip. He does nothing but make snide remarks and calls her Princess which is the total opposite of how she really is. She refuses to let him get to her, and kind of enjoys the back and forth bickering they share on and off stage.

Jason has just come off a tour, and now the record company he works for has him on another tour with this uppity princess. He enjoys being on tour and really likes the fringe benefits of being on tour with a band but this girl just rubs him the wrong way. So for sport, he tries to make her life miserable, but she takes it as good as she gives it. What is it about this girl that is so infuriating?

Remember in school, when boys picked on you and teased you it was because they really liked you but didn’t know how to vocalize it? Well that is Jason and Vanessa. He is brutal with what he says and does to her but she just lets what he says roll right off her back. She knows all too well how short life really can be and sometimes just being there for someone makes all the difference in the world.

This is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. Great story, but how Vanessa puts up with some of the cruel things he says to her is beyond me. I know people live what they learn at home, but his way of pushing people away, to hurt them before they hurt you, has you crying for poor Vanessa. There are a few tears in this story but it does have a HEA, my favorite. Enjoyable, fast read 4.5 stars.
