Peek Inside Hate to Love Him

Brady Davis is as happy as he is charming. Usually. Unless he’s in the same room with the frustratingly gorgeous antidote to his cheer. Mia Kendrick is headstrong and determined. She’s done with men who stand in her way—even if he has arms like Thor and a smile that makes her dizzy. Whenever they’re together, sparks fly—both the bad and good kind.

When Mia returns home to take over management of Kendrick Place, Brady is worried her focus on big business could be the end of his tight-knit home and the family he’s created there. Mia may have the power to change everything, but Brady could have the power to change her mind…if he can get inside her heart.

This was a delightful, restful, easy read with well developed characters and an engaging plot. It continues the saga of Kendrick Place and many of the characters met in the earlier books are also in this one. Having typed that, I also have to say that I think this book will also work as a standalone ...more

LOVED! I adore this series! Such a great community and friendships- you just want to live there. I was looking forward to Brady's book- especially after being teased with his and Mia's relationship in The Bad Boy Next Door. Jody Holford knocked it out of the park.

I was expecting this book to be fill ...more

He had no idea what they were doing or where this could possibly go, but in that second, it felt right. It felt necessary.

By Elizabeth July 22, 2017

A downside of first impressions is that they are, at times, wrong. As is the case for Brady in regards to Mia. Brady, a tenant, had become the interim building manager upon the previous manager's criminal activity being discovered.

Mia is determined to ensure Kendrick Place remains open as it holds a ...more

If you’re’ in the mood for a light hearted romance that goes a little below the surface to expose some raw feelings and insecurities… and deal with them, then Love To Hate Him would be a story that you’d probably enjoy.

Mia is taking over the complex, she’ll run Kendrick ...more

Mia Kendrick is not having a good day. She has a very tough job and at times she has to do something she doesn’t like to do. Brady Davis has gone out of his way to help those that he likes. It’s interesting to watch this hate/love relationship begin and flower.

This was a great conclusion to the Kendrick Place series. We've known Brady from Owen & Gabby's story and now we learn that he owns a body shop and is thinking of expanding it. He's been acting manager of the building while Mia was overseas. He thinks she is a spoiled, bossy princess and has everyth ...more
