    It's Always Been Us

    What an amazing start to the Hopeless Romantics series! I really enjoyed this childhood friends to enemies to lovers slow burn romance! On the Corner of Love and Hate will have you laughing out loud one moment and then tearing up the next. It's relatable and heartfelt and I fell completely in love with Hope Lake and its residents. Emmanuelle (Emma) and Cooper have a complicated history. I couldn't wait to find out what drove these once best friends apart. Sparks fly as they bicker and verbally spar, and I loved every zing of chemistry between them. As the book progresses, readers come to learn about all of their sweet and tender moments (the drawing under the desk!), but also the heartbreaking ones as well. The fates have never quite aligned for these two, and it hurt my heart over how much was left unsaid over the years. I loved all the relationships in this book so much. From parent to child and friend to friend, I loved how supportive and loyal they all were to each other. The secondary characters were absolutely amazing and I don't think I could have loved Emma's mother, Sophia, more! The Chef Boyardee incident and her fashion sense had me snort laughing every time she was mentioned or on the page. I can already tell that steadfast Henry will be my favorite of the BFF quartet though. How can I not fall in love with a character who isn't concerned with sowing his wild oats everywhere and describes himself as a sexual camel? ;) Nina Bocci's writing is witty and sharp and I laughed so hard at all the perfectly placed pop culture references. Her voice and heart really jump off the page and had me invested in these characters from the start. The epilogue left me with a huge smile on my face and I can't wait to see what's next for the town of Hope Lake! *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

    I struggled with On The Corner of Love and Hate in the beginning but it grew on me. It's a mash up of a few things, women's fiction, contemporary small town romance, friends to lovers and enemies to lovers with a political bent. It's also sweet with a bit of humor. I liked it and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    Good start to the series

    **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review** On the Corner of Love and Hate is Nina Bocci's solo debut and it was a good one. While it did take me some time to get into the book, in the end, I enjoyed it. This friends to lovers romance was a good start to this series. Emmanuelle (Emma) and Cooper were best friends, but there were a series of incidents that drove them apart. One of the biggest issues between the two is their communication. Emma has never shared what made her so combative and snarky toward Cooper, and Cooper has never shared his true feelings. Now that the two work together in the development office, they are constantly under one another's feet and are always bickering. When Cooper decides to run for mayor, he knows the person to help him with his campaign is Emma, but because of the state of their relationship, that is anything but smooth sailing. Will these two obviously attracted to one another people make it through the campaign unscathed? There were times throughout the book that I felt Emma was way too hard on Cooper. I know she had hurt feelings, but I really felt for him at times. I enjoyed the secondary characters a lot and felt like they helped to balance everything out. In the end, I enjoyed the book and I will be interested to see what lies ahead for the rest of the residents of Hope Lake.

    Excellent Book

    I recently finished reading the finale in a series that I loved and I've been 'stuck' on what to read next...wanting to read, but worried that what I chose to read would disappoint...I'm sure you've all been there before. Anyway, I received an eARC of this story from NetGalley (Simon & Schuster eGalley) for an honest review and decided to go ahead and read this hoping against hope that the story would be just the thing I needed to get me past my reading slump. I must admit, this story did NOT disappoint!! Nina Bocci is a great writer and I was drawn into the story very quickly. The writer did a wonderful job writing a ... for lack of better words... 'political romance' that really wasn't political and more romance. The main character, Emma, is a strong woman when it comes to her views and work, however, she really doesn't know how to admit her feelings for her love interest, Cooper. I enjoyed reading the banter between the 2 characters. I found myself laughing, crying, and relating to Emma throughout the entire book (and I'm not even a political person at all). Nina Bocci used wit, humor, romantic chemistry, a political campaign, and small town charm to write an engaging, exciting, and fun romance. If you're looking for a book to read that you will enjoy AND root for the couple to have a happily ever after, look no further because this IS the book for you. Nina Bocci has gained a faithful reader in me!! Enjoy, it will be worth your reading time!!
