23167273 Book Title –  Bittersweet Hate

This is book one of Corey and Mimi's story with the second book releasing in October.
What happens when fire meets gasoline?
That’s all it took was a spark. One kiss and I was hooked. I wanted to hate Corey Winchester more than anything and most days I did. He was an arrogant asshole, and bully. He didn't know the first thing about love but yet here I was falling into his lap.
Then things changed. I changed. Someone broke me, and he was there to pick up the pieces showing me a part of him I had never seen. Compassion, trust, and love. I wanted to hate him, with everything in me I wanted to look at him and feel nothing but I guess love and hate can’t coincide together.
What happens when you think you know someone? Like really know them?
Turns out we didn't know each other as well as we thought.
Turns out if you play with fire for too long you, you will in fact get burned.
My names Mimi Jones and this isn't a fairy tale.

Hi! I'm author J.L. Beck. Thank you for visiting my Goodreads page. I'm a rather active member of the website, not because of my books but simply because of the love I have for books in general. Check out my shelves, send me a message, or just add me as a friend. I look forward to chatting with all of you.

First off I have to say I received this as an ARC directly from the author in exchange for my honest review. Now that the formalities are out of the way let's get down to the nitty gritty :)
4.5 Emotionally Charged Stars 
J.L. Beck has done it again! This was another great book! Please, please heed the warnings you will be angry and frustrated with a lot of the book. It is good, but very strong emotions throughout the whole thing. If you want sweet, romance, and butterflies this may not be for you. If you don't mind some angst then it is a great read.
Mimi Jones is back in the third installment of the Bittersweet series by JL Beck. She is full of anger, frustration, emotions, and the wall is firmly in place. The walls eventually start coming down over time until they completely crumble. She finds solace in the most unlikely of places and against her better judgement lets them in. She struggles pretty much the whole book on whether or not she made the right decision.
Corey Winchester is back as well. He is now a changed man so to speak, well maybe not all the way. He falls for the most unlikely of people and lets them in. If you have read the other 2 books in this series you will find that his family's track record isn't so hot in the relationship category so he brings a lot of baggage to the table. Will he be able to get past this or will it crumble and fall at his feet?
The minor characters are Brody, Ryder, Rex, and Mimi's best friend Jenna. Brody plays a big role in the beginning, and shows up one more time briefly and then that is it. I would sort of like to know what happened to him the 2nd time he showed up ;)
All in all a good 3rd installment to the series. Pretty typical to things there are some very brief grammatical errors, but not that big of a deal in the end. I don't dock for errors unless there are so many it takes away from the story, that is not the case with this one.

Katrina gave Bittersweet Hate
5 stars
Sassy Ray Book Reviews doesn’t give out 1/2 stars. I post what the reviewer rates the book the I raise it to the next 1/2)
