#BookReview: A Love Hate Thing by @whitney_DG @InkyardPress

Synopsis: When they’re stuck under one roof, the house may not be big enough for their hate…or their love.

Despite having been shot, Tyson Trice has survived the mean streets of Lindenwood, so nothing can faze him—not even being tossed into the affluent coastal community of Pacific Hills.

Nandy Smith, the golden girl of Pacific Hills, is not pleased when she hears her parents are taking in a troubled teen boy. Nandy suddenly fears her summer plans, as well as her reputation, will go up in flames.

The wall between Trice and Nandy’s bedrooms feels as thin as the line between love and hate. Through time, Trice brings Nandy out of her shell, and Nandy attempts to melt the ice that's taken over Trice's heart. Only, with the ever-present pull back to the Lindenwood streets, it’ll be a wonder if Trice makes it through this summer at all.

My Review: 
This is one of those Debuts that all other Debuts wish they could be!! This was a break out hit for this reader and I can not wait to see what else Grandison has in store for readers! A Love Hate Thing was a rollercoaster of feels with the story and the characters which make the story come to life.  I could see this one getting picked up for a movie quickly as it was just that good.  The pacing was well done and the characters come alive on the page I just couldn't put it down!

 This was a great story!! It reminded me of a movie that was our forever ago. I think it was called Save the Last Dance? The dual POV worked wonderful as we received a well rounded story. I loved the characters and how different they were. The author did an amazing job at giving them their own voice and personality. The romance in this one felt genuine and so very real. And I adored the humor that was in a lot of this title. The ending shocked me which doesn’t happen much. And I can not wait to read another story by Whitney!!
