Review: On the Corner of Love and Hate

On the Corner of Love and Hate (Hopeless Romantics, #1)




For fans of Christina Lauren and Lauren Layne comes a delightfully sassy and sexy romance about a campaign manager who reluctantly works with the local Lothario to help revamp his image for the upcoming mayoral elections, only to discover that he’s hiding something that can turn both their lives upside down.

What’s a campaign manager’s worst nightmare? A smooth-talking charmer who’s never met a scandal that he didn’t like.

When Emmanuelle Peroni’s father—and mayor of her town—asks her to help rehab Cooper Endicott’s image, she’s horrified. Cooper drives her crazy in every way possible. But he’s also her father’s protégé, and she can’t say no to him without him finding out the reason why: Cooper and her have a messy past. So Emmanuelle reluctantly launches her father’s grand plan to get this Casanova someone to settle down with and help him lose his lothario reputation.

Cooper Endicott wanted to run for Mayor, but he never wanted the drama that went with it. Now that he’s on the political hamster wheel, the other candidates are digging up everything from his past. Even though he’s doing all the right things, his colorful love life is the sticking point for many of the conservative voters. He wants to win, badly, and he knows that if he wants any chance of getting a vote from the female population, he needs to change his image. The only problem? He might just be falling in love with the one person he promised not to pursue: the Mayor’s off-limits daughter.

A perfect blend of humor and heart, On the Corner of Love and Hate is the first in a new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Nina Bocci.

Rating: 5-stars


On the Corner of Love and Hate by Nina Bocci is one romantic rom-com. The characters had this intense relationship that kept building as the pages flew by. Anger, frustration, jealousy, and tons of humor fill the book’s journey. Sparks flew hotter as the both protagonists realized just how much they were in love. But getting there is the hard part.  Cooper is running for Mayor. He promised not to go after his mentor’s aka current mayor’s daughter. However, one he has been bit the love bug doesn’t fade. It only grew only neither he nor Emma could keep it away anymore.

Emma is the current mayor’s daughter. She and Cooper grew up together and work together. That would make any relationship with him off bounds. Cooper has quirks like any other man. I loved the opening scene of Cooper sitting in an office chair with air buds in ears blaring music while he thought Emma was ‘talking to herself’. I couldn’t help but to laugh. I felt her anger build up and progress. The plot just got stickier and juicier as it rolled forward.

Cooper despite his quirks also has the perfect charm that instantly made him well-liked. Emma even admitted it.

Looking for a dash of humor, a dash of old crushes, and a lot of intense heat? Than this is the rom-com, for you! I am a huge fan of Christina Lauren books. After reading this novel, I can definitely say, it was just as good as anything I’ve read from Christina Lauren and Tessa Bailey!
