    Review copy courtesy of NetGalley. I?m typically a huge fan of hate to love stories but this one begins with such an unrealistic misunderstanding that it was hard for the rest of the book to get over it. And once that was over, most of the book was basically dueling perspectives o...

    I picked this up and was immediately sucked in and loving it! There was so much fun with the back and forth between Paisley and Carter. Now, I feel like Paisley really got to taking it too far, but then there were times that I think Carter took his side too seriously or emotionally. I ...

    As several other reviewers indicated, the beginning and the ending of this book are especially appealing. Some of the parts in the middle seemed a bit bogged down and more complicated than they needed to be, but I ended up enjoying this one. Who doesn't enjoy a book in which the love i...

    This book was a enemies to friends to lovers story. Paisley and carter both have some history. They both start doing pranks and some of them are just mean to forgetting a class to reporting on someone. I get that they both grew up during this 1st semester at college but I think that bo...

    2.5 stars, but I'll round up. I liked bits and pieces of this one. Cute concept (why I read it in the first place) but not sure how I felt about the execution of it. A lot of threads felt like they were poking out of the "fabric," and I'm not sure (view spoiler)[both POVs were necessar...

    2.5 stars. A fluffy contemp, but the MC does some really awful things so it's hard to back her up, and I wasn't quite convinced that the bully has become a good guy. It was fast paced, and there was definitely some witty repartee that was fun, but overall, there are better contemps out...

    The Shortest Distance Between Love & Hate was an ok read. It is a young adult contemporary romance standalone by Sandy Hall. I wanted to love this book so much. It has so many elements that are big winners to me. I love a hate to love dynamic. In fact, it is one of my favorite. And...

    The Shortest Distance Between Love and Hate is a sweet feel-good YA romance that left me feeling a little lighter and a little more hopeful. It serves as a great reminder about the innocence of new connections and a time in life when it's okay to be silly and slightly less than logical...

    This was a very quick read, so quick that I read it in one sitting. But being a quick read isn't always a good thing. Right away I was excited to see that it was set in college. There are not enough YA books that take place in college. I loved the beginning of this book. We jumped r...

    devoured The Shortest Distance Between Love & Hate in one sitting. Partially because of its smaller page count, and mostly because the plot was immediately absorbing, and the dialogue easy to follow. My favorite character was Carter, because he was perfectly flawed. He had a pa...

    He doesn?t have any effect on me; he doesn?t matter. That?s my new motto. So what if we have classes together and work together and live in the same dorm? None of that matters. The universe isn?t trying to tell me something. Why would the universe be talking to me anyway? Doesn...

    Not What I Was Expecting When I read a description about a girl falling for the bully from middle school, I guess I?m expecting an emotional read. This was not that. Don?t get me wrong it was cute, but almost too cute and definitely too immature, even for a YA book. Pai...

    As a big fan of the enemies to lovers trope, I was excited for this book. Our main characters Paisley and Cartner knew each other in middle school, but haven't seen each other since. When they run into each other at their first week of college, there is a spark. Even though they don't ...

    It started out okay but as it continued I lost interest in the story very soon. The same old enemies(middle-school bully) to lovers trope is in play but it wasn't written well. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. ...

    I received an ARC from the publisher via a friend, with no obligation to leave a personal review. I generally always enjoy Swoon Reads books on some level, because I am such a huge fan of YA romance, and YA contemporary romance in particular. I love other genres, too, of course, and...

    I really wanted to like this story. But in the end it was just OK. The relationship between Carter and Paisley wasn't that swoonworthy, it seemed like it was trying to hard to bring up societal issues butt hen forgetting about them pages later and Paisley was really a total immature me...

    I?m always looking for quick and fun contemporary romance reads just because they?re usually really light-hearted and something I can get through even if I haven?t been reading a lot. I also love a good enemies-to-lover trope so you can probably see why I wanted to read Hall?s ...

    Well, this was a roller coaster of emotions. :) Paisley is looking forward to college. On her first ever party she makes out with this really amazing guy and she is over the moon. He is funny, good looking. All is well until she figures out where she knows him from... Then it all go...

    I had a hard time with this book, through most of the book it was a 2 star read, but the end bumped it up to 3 stars. Paisley is kind of a terrible person, because of something that happened in middle school she decides to make Carter's life miserable. She won't let go, even her friend...

    It?s been a long time since I last reading a YA Contemporary book. And I was so nervous to get back to it again, truly nervous because I was afraid it might not be as good as I hoped for, but I was glad to be proven wrong, because...this book was amazing! I truly enjoyed it, even wit...

    *This arc was given to me by the publisher to do an honest review.* I gave this book 2 stars because there wasn?t much of a conflict or a good plot. There was instant love which I?m not a huge fan of and I didn?t like how the story was written. The characters acted like they...
