So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I’ve ever come across.
Let’s be honest here, wouldn’t you wanna take a peek over the wall to catch a glimpse of him, hopefully when he is naked? Wouldn’t you melt away after watching him work out as his five-year-old kid cheered him on? Do I even have to mention those abs, the big bulge in his pants, or that arm porn? Oh, wait, you would never spy on him? Sure…
While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder—or maybe a boob or two—to cry on (y’know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people! He was supposed to grant me countless orgasms as a thank you, not a jail cell.
After that day, I was mentally plotting ways to strangle him instead of jumping his bones to make sweet love. So what if my body did more than just shiver when he whispered dirty little things in my ear? I can’t be held responsible for that. And when was the last time he’d kissed anyone anyway? Who’d enjoy a kiss with a side of heart attack?
Even if he and his son were the best things since sliced bread—and I’m not saying he was—I couldn’t fall for him. No matter what promises he whispered on my skin, my curse wouldn’t let us be. I wasn’t a damsel in distress—I could save myself, thank you very much—but deep inside, I still hoped Adam Connor would be the hero of my story.
4 Mr. Movie Stars
I love a movie star Hero. I like the gliz and the glamor but you know what I love even more, the main Hero has a son! Yes, this is a single parent book and you know I’m all over that.
To Hate Adam Connor is a standalone, but it’s a spinoff from To Love Jason Thorn. Olive is best friends with Lucy and Adam lives next door to Jason. This is Lucy and Adam’s story.
Lucy is a strong, independent cursed Heroine. She just recently gotten out of a relationship and she believes she will never be able to love and she’s comes to terms with that. She doesn’t have a place to stay and is going to shack it up with Jason and Olive.
First off, I love that Olive and Jason are in this book and I couldn’t get enough of them. They are cute and funny. I love the relationship Olive has with Lucy. I find Lucy a very likable Heroine. She has a good head on her shoulders and she does what I would do. When she realizes the movie star Adam Connor lives next door, well she props a ladder to the fence to check him out. It’s completely funny and I laughed so hard. I couldn’t get enough of it.
Adam is a very sweet guy and come on, any single parent is hot. I love that he lives next door and I love that he’s a father. Adam is going through the typical single parent issues and is just trying to do best for his son, but as a famous movie star with a famous movie star baby mama. There’s going to be lots of drama, which I found great to read. His ex-wife was a great villain to get sucked into.
I really liked Adam, I found him so strong, so adorable and completely hot. I liked that he is protective of his son, yet he’s open minded and very well-rounded. I felt like He would complete Lucy. But because of Lucy’s past, she’s very stubborn and of course she dislikes Adam very much. Yes she may glance at him through a fence, but the tension between Adam and Lucy is endearing.
To Hate Adam Connor is a very meaty book, it’s a bit descriptive and so the author paints a pretty picture for you. You get a lot of character build up and dialogue and fun stuff. Overall, I found the read very comical, light and mild on tension and angst. I thought Lucy was awesome and Adam adorable. It’s was a great read.

To Hate Adam Connor AMAZON
I'm an avid reader. Therefore, a big dreamer. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face, and of course sometimes making you crush on fictional characters. If I can manage to do even one of those things for a reader, I will be a happy writer.
I can't even begin to describe how exciting it is to give life to new characters and fall for them. It's a different kind of addiction.
I'm still searching for my own happy ending. Until that happens, I'll live vicariously through my own characters.
