Genre: Contemporary Romance
The act of hating – no, fucking loathing Dean Collins. (Yes, I’m well aware that’s not the actual definition, but it might as well be…)
It’s been ten years since we’ve seen each other and the feelings are still as strong.
I’m not going to bore you with all the details of how our love was once intoxicating, consuming, and perfect.
Because it was . . . until it wasn’t.
I’ve been fine without him. I haven’t missed his cruelty, his coldness and his spite.
And after the ugliest breakup in the history of breakups, I forced myself to move on.
Year by year, the feelings I had for him slowly drifted away, but one encounter with him recently changed everything. One encounter made me realize how the heart doesn’t forget shit, and how my mind is going to have to work overtime to make sure I never forget my definition of resentment.
“Are you coming to the pep rally tonight?” he asks.
“School spirit isn’t really my thing. No offense, but…football isn’t either.”
He laughs, and I suddenly realize that the two of us have never talked about football during our sessions together. In fact, whenever I’ve brought it up, he’s changed the subject to something else.
“Well,” he says, letting my hand go. “You should come for me instead.”
“What? What do you mean?”
“I mean, since you’re not into school spirit or football, but you’re clearly into me, you can make an exception and come tonight.”
“You’re getting quite presumptuous lately.” I put on my best poker face. “Do I need to help you with that definition?”
“Not when I know the true word you’re looking for is cognizant.” He grins, stepping back. “I hope to see you tonight.”
“I’ll think about it.”
“I’m sure you always do.” He gives me a look so sexy that I almost melt into the floor.
Goddamn, Dean Collins…

Nicole London is an aspiring author who is currently trapped in a terrible 9 to 5 and wishes Starbucks actually made decent drinks. She recently discovered her passion for writing after reading a ton of amazing indie books, and she plans to publish her first book, Resentment, October 29th.
Resentment was my first book from author Nicole London, however, it will definitely not be my last. I have now added her to my must stalk authors list because I absolutely freaking loved Resentment.
The book starts out and you’re completely smitten with this young couple. Dean is sweet and a bit mischievous and Mia is an absolutely amazing character. Smart and clever – you like them both immediately. I was completely charmed by these two and their actions – as they were falling in love, so was I as the reader.
So when the relationship takes a swift change, your heart is absolutely destroyed by Dean’s behavior. You have no understanding of why he’s acting the way he does – all you know is that not only is Mia’s heart broken but now yours is too. And it was crazy. I suddenly hated Dean – the author evoked such anger in me. I felt completely betrayed by him.
Fast forward 10 years and suddenly these two are thrust back into one another’s lives thanks to fate (or maybe it’s just some karmic book law of unfinished business that brings them back together). Whatever it is, you’re absolutely psyched that they are forced to reconnect but you feel guarded. I wanted to demand answers from Dean as to why he did what he did.
Their path towards a happily ever after together isn’t necessarily easy. Even though the passion and intensity that they felt for each other hasn’t subsided over the years, in fact it’s probably grown – they still have a lot of trust issues and their history to get past. As it all unfolds you’re pulled deeper into their relationship and before you know it, you’ve devoured their entire book. It’s awesome.
Resentment is filled with wicked fun verbal banter, freaking hot sexual moments and swoon worthy scenes that will melt your heart – I cannot state enough about how much I loved this book!! Resentment is a top recommendation from me. Definitely grab this book today!
