Review ~ Hate Mail by Winter Renshaw

Hate Mail (Paper Cuts #1)Hate Mail by Winter Renshaw
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I felt that this one started really well, as we got an insight into both Campbell and Slade in the present, and a few letters at the end of each chapter from their past. I liked getting to know both of them, and seeing how they interacted with their parents.

Campbell didn’t engage in conflict, and seemed to be a bit of a pushover at times, always doing what she was told. She didn’t seem to be her own person. When Slade pushed her too far, she exploded and I liked seeing that fire in her.

Slade seemed like he disliked Campbell, but he struggled with his feelings. He was a very private person, like his family. I didn’t like the way they kept things from Campbell, and I think they should’ve opened up to her. It confused me a little. I liked that Slade made an effort with Campbell, but she was quick to accept everything.

The twist in the end threw me a little and the book wrapped up quickly after that. I was sad that things went in that direction, and that we didn’t get to see a lot of them together. The last 10% of the read is a chapter from another book, so be aware that the read is shorter than you think.

Title: Hate Mail
Author: Winter Renshaw
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: August 10, 2023

In the Wakemont family, it’s tradition to arrange a marriage before the ink is dry on your birth certificate. I was five hours old when my father promised me to the son of a man with “more money than God.”

As we grew older, my future groom and I were encouraged to exchange “love letters” to get better acquainted—except the correspondence he sent read more like hate mail.

Slade Delacorte hated the arrangement.

But more than that, he hated me.

He was moody, intense, arrogant, and darkly gorgeous. A villain—not a prince. The last man on earth I’d ever marry (if I had the choice).

On my 24th birthday, we exchanged vows in front of six hundred guests who had no idea we weren’t every bit the blissful couple we pretended to be.

But as we began our new life together, I soon learned there was only one thing worse than marrying the man I’d hated my entire falling in love with him.

AUTHOR'S NOTE —This angsty, steamy contemporary romance is a complete standalone with a happily ever after.
