Hating Thy Neighbor by Marion De Ré: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

My revenge is so close I can almost taste it.

All I have to do is go undercover, make Charlotte Weston fall in love with me, and discover her dad's secrets to finally put him behind bars.
Sounds easy, right? I'm a charming guy and an excellent agent.
Except it doesn't exactly go as planned. Charlotte isn't the dumb heiress I was expecting and she's definitely not ready to get swept-off her feet. She's smart, she's feisty, and she hates me at first sight.

As I put my plan in motion—which involves getting shirtless more than necessary, a secluded cabin in the woods, karaoke nights, and a fake broken car—I start to get lost in the lie I created and question the entire operation.

What if I found love when I was seeking revenge?

Hating Thy Neighbor is a closed-door enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy with laugh-out-loud moments and sizzling fade-to-black scenes between an undercover FBI agent and a hotel heiress. It's the first book in the For The Love of Rom-Coms series. All books are standalones, told in dual POV and end with a happily ever after.

Marion De Ré is a closed-door romantic comedy author. She lives in the French countryside with her husband and adorable cat. You can expect all your beloved tropes in her writing as well as a good dose of humor and all the feels. When she's not reading or writing, you can find her on a plane to a far-away destination or in a Champagne cellar, indulging in a tasting of her favorite drink. 

From the moment I saw this cover and read the description, I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on this book! An undercover FBI agent falling for the daughter of the man he's supposed to be investigating!? Yes, please! I am happy to say that it absolutely did NOT disappoint. 

While Ian's character hooked me from the beginning, I must admit that I didn't think I was going to care for Charlotte at all. It definitely seemed like she was going to be a spoiled rich girl who put more stock in material things when we first meet her. As we got to see more from her POV though, I started to see there was more to her than that... and by the end I actually really loved her character. When her and Ian are together? So, so good! I loved his protectiveness over her and how quickly she becomes more than a job for him. The story was just wonderfully done all around. And the chemistry? Oh my goodness, I loved it! This was just such a fun read, and I absolutely couldn't get enough of it! 

Hating Thy Neighbor is a closed-door romance. There are some innuendos, talk about sex and fade to black moments, but anything beyond kisses happens off the pages. There is also some minor language throughout the story.
