Love, Hate, Repeat – Vivyan Lynne

I’ve struggled with reading for a decade thanks to mental illness and medication side effects so when I not only finished Love, Hate, Repeat, but enjoyed the reading process I was absolutely ecstatic! I feel like a part of me is back, a core part of my identity which, even when I wasn’t reading, I still identified with.

Disclosure: this book was written by one of my clients but I paid full price for the book and read it by choice.

Love, Hate, Repeat is book one of a gay YA trilogy and I’ve bought the rest of it now too because I’m so invested in the characters!

It’s an easy read but one that kept me interested and invested in the characters who are wonderfully human and equally flawed.

I found the repetitive routine of college classes to offer a grounding feel, keeping both me and the book in reality. I appreciated how it was used to also offer a clear opposite to the whirlwind romance we follow through the book. The feeling of being so swept up in love (or lust!) is clearly portrayed and, while Kellen certainly doesn’t find the college time grounding, it offers the reader an opportunity to view the relationship with more perspective and figure out how they feel.
