Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward


From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story of secondhand hearts and second chances…

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. 

Something blue. 

I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” 

Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. 

The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed. 

He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after. 

But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined. 

Something new. 

But I have no idea how this one is going to end... 

Ivy’s $0.02:

It's amazing how a little wine and internet can make you feel brave and wreck-less.  Charlotte has a unique imagination, while she's at a wedding boutique she creates her own story about some wedding dresses that are on hangers. Then she was drawn to this beautiful dress with feathers and attempted to try it on which of course doesn't fit because that would be too perfect of a dress. She notices the note and that's when her mind really takes off.  There begins her stalking I mean "research"of  Reed Eastwood. 

This was a little predictable for me. Charlotte has been struggling with a steady job but when she gets an offer she can't refuse she's super excited.  It was with Reese's Real Estate Co.  Therefore He's her new boss, let the good times roll! This book had everything I love in books banter, fun and steamy moments between Charlotte and Reed. Reed is the kind of asshole I love, I wanted to punch him  one minute then kiss him the next. I will say the Epilogue was amazing.
