Peek Inside I Hate You, Fuller James

I hate the most popular guy in school, and that I’m having to secretly tutor him. I hate that he’s actually smart and kind. And I hate that the more time I talk to him, the less I hate him.

I hate you, Fuller James.

I hate your floppy hair and your lopsided grin and those laughing blue eyes that always seem to be laughing at me.

I hate that you’re the most popular guy in school and I’m still the girl who sneezed and spit out her retainer on someone at a middle school dance. It’s just such a cliché.

I hate that I’m being forced to tutor you in English and keep it a secret from everyone. Because otherwise it might put our basketball team’s chances at winning State in jeopardy, and even though I hate you, I love basketball.

I hate that it seems like you’re keeping a secret from me…and that the more time we spend together, the less I feel like I’m on solid ground. Because I’m starting to realize there’s so much more to you than meets the eye. Underneath it all, you’re real.

But what I hate most is that I really don’t hate you at all.


I Hate You, Fuller James, was a super-fast, light, cute, and fun read!  It balanced out heavy topics, with lightness, humor, friendship, and first love.  This was a story that sucked me right in, and gave me great characters, and a real, relatable, and emotional reading experience.” -A Bookish Escape

My thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

While this was a cute hate to love romance, I found that it was also about family and friendship. The side characters were easy to love. Well, most of them. Not everyone.

Oh wow, it’s been a while since I read an innocent YA romance. I’ve been on an adult romance kick recently, and I’d almost forgotten what it was like to go back to my “roots”, shall we say. And I Hate You, Fuller James was a good one to read for that sweetness. Just look at that cover!

Dear Fuller James,

As you know, you are one of the lead characters in Kelly Anne Blount’s I Hate You, Fuller James. I read the blurb for your story and I thought, “Yeah. This is something I can really get into.” I then saw the cover for the book. My first reaction was, “I like it. I might ev ...more

My first novel by Kelly Anne Blount will not be my last. I must now devour everything she's ever written. The story is compelling, but it's the characters that really stand out to me.

Let me begin by saying that I'm definitely not the target audience for this book, as I'm a middle aged old lady who writes very smutty romances, and this was a lovely, sweet, extremely un-smutty high school romance! So, that said, I enjoyed this love story very much. It was a light, fast read that c ...more

“He was the reason I’d given up on being friends with girls after Marissa, Courtney, and practically every other girl in my class started making fun of me. I couldn’t trust that my own gender wouldn’t throw me under the bus the next time a guy like Fuller James gave them the opportunity.”*

Wrentainer. A stupid nickname that stuck since middle school. Given by none other than Fuller James.

I hate you, Fuller James was a mixture of Ten Things I hate about you and One Tree Hill. It was a cute, fluffy sports romance and I do like the nerd and a jock trope.
