The Trouble with Hating You
About this deal
Not here. Come on.” I pulled her out of her seat and grabbed a blanket from the trunk before trekking through the soft grass. I raised a sharp brow, my bangled wrist on my hip. “I don’t know about your past lives, but you’ve done enough in this lifetime to deserve some affliction.” The chemistry between the characters can be maintain until the end of the book. Overall this book is a perfection. Can not wait for other book by Miss Patel.
Jay is a lawyer who was recently hired to advise Liya’s company. When their uncomfortable dinner meeting proves not to be their last encounter, he finds himself wanting to spend more time with her despite the tension between them. He doesn’t let the rumors in the community bother him, and their morning breakfasts and late dinners in Liya’s office gradually turn into something more. In getting to know one another, Liya and Jay must grapple with their past traumas before finally accepting the true feelings that blossomed along the way.Jay also didn't endear himself to me as I found him a little pushy/white knight'y in his pursuit of Liya who really didn't give him any reason to believe there could be anything between them until suddenly there was? 🤷♀️
Dating Dr. Dil features a love-phobic TV doctor who must convince a love-obsessed homebody they are destined to be together. There is no way The Trouble With Hating You wouldn't be a five star read from me. The convo I mentioned above is a conversation between the heroine Liya and her Father and showcases a lot of what is going on this book; the clash between old world thinking and new world thinking. Her gaze shot up, watching me over the rim of the cup with a hint of incredulity. “How’d you know?”
rounded up to a 3* as this is a me compatibility issue. This book just wasn't quite what I'd hoped it would be and I didn't connect with the MCs. Jay also had a lot of depth as he also harbors his own personal traumas in his own ways that he has to confront throughout the novel. I do appreciate the author making the two main characters realistic and giving them flaws that make them seem like actual people.
The Trouble With Hating You follows Liya and Jay, while they both struggle with their own demons and cultural expectations.I'd even be curious to see Reema navigate as a newlywed, maybe through her experiences we could get a different perspective on their culture than what Liya's story shared...but I'm possibly most interested in Sana's story and am🤞🤞🤞 for that one. I shrugged. “Maybe we like the same drinks.” Or maybe Wendy had told me the other day when she balanced three cups of coffee in the elevator. I enjoyed the story itself, I really did, but I am about to say what I truly thought of The Trouble with Hating You.
