Title: #Hater (The Hashtag Series #2)
Author: Cambria Hebert
Release: January 12, 2015
Genre:  NA Contemp/College Romance


It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.

It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.

The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone.
Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it.

And we’re happy.

Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me.

As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.
I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.

 Here is my review for #Hater ... wow, might be my longest review yet. haha.

#Sexy #Intense #ButterfliesInTheTummy

I am somewhat of a Hashtag addict, (seriously, I have an #AddictionProblem) so when I saw this series...I just HAD to read them! I fell in love with #Nerd and #Hater did NOT disappoint. Sometimes, a series can fall flat and not stay along the lines of the 1st book, but Cambria stayed true to the story line and the characters are just as lovable in this book, maybe even more so.  If you haven't read #Nerd yet (#WhyHavnetYouReadItYet), you will want to before jumping into #Hater.

Romeo is definitely the new #SwoonWorthy #BookBoyfriendOf2015

Since this is a Hashtag series, I see it only fitting that I give you lots of #'s of why I love this book!
#Romeo <---- :="" achisanass="" arma="" ate="" atersgonhate="" ddicting="" div="" ealously="" erdlove="" evenge="" evouredit="" harming="" immelisthebestnerdever="" lphabuzzfeedisawesome="" nbsp="" need="" one="" only="" ootball="" ouldntputthisbookdown="" oveablecharacters="" really="" reatplot="" the="" weet="" woonworthy="" you="">

Rimmel is trying to fit into Romeo's campus celebrity status, being the #Nerd girlfriend of the sexiest, most popular guy on campus comes with its share of problems.  Especially when every girl within a 100 mile radius is after him (Seriously guys, even the 'older' women who work on campus swoon at him, they can't resist his charm).  But, its very clear that Romeo only has eyes for Rimmel, which makes this story even sweeter. 

--I palmed the back of her head, holding her tight. It scared me how much I loved her sometimes. Just like the anger I’d felt just moments ago scared me. It was raw and intense. It almost bordered on hate. And all of it… every single flame of that animosity was directed at one man. I had been well prepared to leave it all in the past. But those bruises on Rimmel’s body were not in the past. And I wasn’t going to let them go.

Zach has not forgotten that is was Romeo's fault that he spent a night in jail and was kicked out of presidency at Alpha Omega and he has vowed #Revenge.  And what better way then to attack the woman he loves.  #ZachIsADouche 

He wants Romeo to pay.  He wants his status to disappear.  He wants him to loose the championship game.  He wants to take everything away from Romeo, and he will not stop until he does.  #EvenARestrainingOrderWontStopHim  #HeGoesTooFar

Rimmel, being on scholarship to Alpha U and a straight A student, is now being accused of plagerism.  Something that can cost her her scholarship and get her kicked out of school.  Her dream of becoming a veterinarian is threatened.  She knows she didn't cheat, she worked hard on that paper..for weeks.  She does't understand how her paper ended up on the internet for sale BEFORE she even turned it in.  How did it end up online and can she prove she wrote her paper 100% and didn't cheat?  #WhoDidThis  #WasItZach

Now Romeo must keep his girl safe (Zach has already attacked her twice..and you won't believe what he did to her at the football field - have to read it to find out), win the championship game, and achieve his life long goal of signing with the NFL.  Can he prove to the Dean that Rimmel didn't cheat?

#TragedyStrikes and everything that Romeo has worked so hard for is in jeopardy.  When everything is all said and done, will Romeo and Rimmel be left with only each other?  #TimeWillTell 

Here are just a few of my Favorite #SwoonWorthy passages
-- “You look like a snowman.” I smiled, taking in his white-covered hair.
   “Honey, if I was a snowman, I’d be a puddle at your feet by now.”

-- “You jumped in after me,” I whispered.
   “I’d jump into the pits of hell for you, Rim.”

--“Loving you has given me way more than I imagined.” She reached up and brushed the backs of her knuckles across my cheek.
I dragged my fingers through her hair.
“It scares me too,” Rimmel whispered. “How much I love you.”
“I’m going to protect you. I’m going to protect us,” I said. “I won’t ever stop.”

--I kissed the tip of her nose. “I love you so much. I’m keeping you. My family is your family now. I won’t let anyone take that away from you.”

--(Ok, this one is just hilarious)
“My life is falling apart, and old women are hitting on you.”
“I’m sorry, baby. I’ll try to be less irresistible.”

#AlphaBuzzTime  At the beginning of each chapter, we get little tweets from the app all the students at Alpha U has, we don't know who the #BuzzBoss is but they sure seem to know everything that goes on at Alpha U, especially when it concerns Romeo.  Here are just a few of my favorites.

-- A man can be judged by his actions toward other men.  But being an asshold to a woman...that just  makes you a dick.  #ThisBuzzIsForYouZach .....Alpha BuzzFeed

Is your body from McDonalds? Because I'm loving it.  #ThisWillNotGetYouLaid ....Alpha BuzzFeed

--(And this is my #AllTimeFavorite)
#ItsSoCold  I just saw a teenager with his pants pulled up.  #ButtCracksGetColdToo #StayWarm ....Alpha BuzzFeed

I hope you liked my review, sometimes I worry that I won't do the book justice. I just #Loved this series and think that you will too if you give it a chance.  I don't want to tell you #Everything about it, but I hope this is enough for you to give it a chance.  #ForgetRomeoAndJuliet  #RomeoAndRimmelForever

#Hater Excerpt #1
Copyright by Cambria Hebert

The distance between us was getting wider.
She thought I would just drive her back to campus, that I would just let her walk away mad.
Hell to the no.
I still remembered the night she got out of the Hellcat and walked away from me. The night I had to tell her getting close to her had only been a bet. The hurt in her eyes still cut me to the core.
I didn’t want a repeat of that night. Not ever again.
Zach had been the cause of that night, and he was pretty much the cause of the space between us now.
He was a hater. Plain and simple.
I couldn’t. I wouldn’t let the hate he spewed so willingly overshadow everything I had with Rimmel. I agreed with my dad.
She was a keeper.
Her hand was stiff as I pulled her along toward my place, but she still allowed me to lead her. When we got close to the pool, she moved closer to my side, and I angled my body in front of her to block the sight.
Once inside, we didn’t speak. She took off her heels and coat, and I went to turn on the fire in the bedroom. When I came back, she was crouched down in the living room, petting Murphy, who was zigzagging around her feet.
“You took pictures of me when I was sleeping.” Her voice was calm and quiet, but it filled the room.
“Yeah, I did.” I wasn’t going to apologize for that. Deep down, I must have known things might come to this. I was a lawyer’s son after all. I knew things needed to be documented.
“You could have just asked.” She straightened up from Murphy and looked at me. “Instead, you took advantage of me and never said a word.”
“I didn’t take advantage of you. I was just doing what I thought was best.”
“Well, you don’t get to decide what’s best for me!” Her voice rose, and Murphy paused in purring to look up at her.
“I don’t get a say?” I shot back, trying to hold on to my temper.
She took a deep breath. “Of course you do. But you didn’t say anything. You just did. Just like at dinner. You just announced I was getting a restraining order. There was no conversation.”
I opened my mouth, but she kept talking.
“How am I supposed to trust you when you do things like this without me knowing?”
“You don’t trust me anymore?” I said the words with quiet calm. Surely this wasn’t enough to ruin the trust between us.
She blew out a breath and paced across the room. “I didn’t say that.” She spun away from me and looked at the wall. “I’m just upset.”
I strode across the room. It was darker where she was. The lights were off in here, and from this position in the room, the crackling fire in the bedroom didn’t cast much light.
My feet stopped when I was directly behind her. Usually, I would touch her without thought. But right then I paused.
Fuck. That.
I wrapped my hands around her wrists, then loosened my grip to slide my palms up her arms to rest at her shoulders. I felt her exhale, and I wrapped one of my arms across her chest and pulled her back against my front.
“I could tell you I’m sorry,” I whispered in her ear. “I could whisper how much I love you and that I won’t ever do something like this again.”
The back of her head hit my chest as I spoke. The silky strands of her perfectly straight hair tickled my lips as I talked, and the scent of her shampoo enticed me closer.
“But I’m not going to apologize.”
She stiffened, but I strengthened my hold, unwilling to let her pull away. I kept my voice whisper soft and my lips right beside her ear.
“I’d do it again, in a friggin’ heartbeat if that’s what I thought you needed.”
