Hate Me (The Keatyn Chronicles, #5)

I was told if I went away, he'd forget about me, lose interest, and move on.
But he hasn't.
In fact, my being gone has only made things worse.
So it's time for me to take matters into my own hands.
It's time for me to fight back.
Hey, Vincent. You ready for a little chaos?
*ARC received for author for an honest review*

*PLEASE NOTE* if you have not read the other books in this series, STOP NOW! My review will contain spoilers and that is not my intent. This series MUST be read in order and therefore my review is only for those who have read Stalk Me, Kiss Me, Date Me, Love Me, and Adore Me!*

For me, every book in this series is like a season of my favorite tv show. Each chapter playing out like an episode that is leading up to that season finale that will have me on the edge of my seat, hoping and praying I get all my questions answered. And just like with any good show, I know I'm going to be left wanting more. 

And yet, even knowing I am going to hate myself for devouring the book so quickly and have an extremely long wait until my next fix, I do it anyway. And I have to say, this one has left the biggest impact thus far. Boy, what an ending! I felt so many mixed emotions about what went down, I don't even know how I feel about it. 

Keatyn makes a lot of bold decisions through out this book. She has one mission in mind, take back her life. And she is willing to go to some pretty big extremes to achieve that goal. There were quite a few times I questioned her decisions, but thankfully they all seem to be working (so far!!). 

There are some fun, lighthearted moments weaved in with the more intense ones. We still get plenty of Keats and her boys, especially Aiden! Speaking of Hottie God, him and Keatyn share some pretty smokin' hot moments in this book. This is by far the most steam I have had do info from my iPad when it comes to Keats and her love interest! 

And the ending! Oh, how the ending has me reeling. There is SO much I want to say about it, but I won't since that would spoil things for you! Just know you will be left thinking about it for days and days after you finish it. I have so many scenarios playing my head on what is going to happen in the next book, I am driving myself crazy! 

And that is all I am saying for now!

4.5 IFLY STARS!!!! I took my precious time and I posted zero updates because I want people to read and get the full experience that is Stalk Me. Kiss Me. Date Me. Love Me. HATE ME.

Be prepared Jillian Dodd did an AMAZING job! This book is daring, angst filled emotionally charged and shocking! Excuse me while I step away to sip on something.

 Honestly I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. My thoughts are so scrambled. Alright here is what I can say while keeping it as spoiler free as possible.

This book left me breathless with sweaty palms and my heart racing a mile a minute.

How is you ending up dead a win? -Cooper

Fight or Flight, in Hate Me Keatyn has had enough. She is done with allowing Vincent to be in control and she’s decided to take things in to her own hands. Every choice she makes puts her in a life or death situation. Meanwhile, everything with her and Aiden is perfect well as perfect as things can be. As for Brooklyn it seems like he is slowly slipping through her fingers. Or is he...

Keatyn longs for things to be back to normal. She wants to be reunited with her family. Or if anything have her family united and out of harms way.

Character Breakdowns


Keatyn steps up in a BIG way in this book. She is bold, tenacious and cunning as she faces off with her enemy in a very unexpected way. I cheered K on the whole time and so will you. I felt her highs and her lows. She became selfless in a fight for her life. Her freedom. Readers will not be disappointed.

The Boys
SWOOOON!!!Every scene with Aiden left me swooning. Be prepared ladies he is panty melting and oh so sweet!

Riley and Dallas are still adorable, funny and lovable!


Dawson…Dawson surprised me a little. In a good way ;)

Brooklyn is….well Brooklyn *rolls eyes* I kind of felt bad for him at one point though.

My Thoughts
Just when I think I know which way the story is going I get thrown a curve ball.  There are a lot of surprises some good some bad. Jillian Dodd does an AWESOME job at setting up for Get Me and now I am waiting with baited breath for August to get here.

Parting words: It seems Keatyn is not the only actress amongst her classmates…

Plot/Storyline- Unputdownable
Steam Factor- Medium/Moderately Steamy on a scale of 1-10 I say 6

Gossip girl meets Hollywood in this new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.

Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed of. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most coveted lunch table. She’s just not sure she wants it anymore. Because really, things aren’t all that perfect. Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam. Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to. It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect. And deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends. To add to the drama, her movie star mom’s long-time fan has turned stalker. An older man is flirting with her and telling her they should make a movie together. And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating a guy like him would mean committing social suicide. So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony. But little does she know, there’s someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.



Jillian is the author of the That Boy series and The Keatyn Chronicles. She grew up on a farm in Nebraska, where she developed a love for Midwestern boys and Nebraska football. She lives in Texas with her family.
