To Have and to Hoax was a gem of a book that I had happened upon last year and ended up absolutely thrilling me. I knew immediately after finishing that I would read whatever else Martha Waters wrote, and I’m so pleased that To Love and to Loathe shines just as bright as it’s predecessor.
The only thing better than the promise of a frenemies-to-lovers situation, it’s when said book delivers successfully on that promise. Jeremy and Diana’s interactions in To Have and to Hoax had me hoping for a book focused on their story, and this did not disappoint in the least. There was so much to love: their constant bickering and witty remarks, the subtle attempts at undermining one another, the sizzling chemistry, the underlying romantic feelings obvious to everyone except themselves.
Besides the excellently written romance, I found Jeremy and Diana to be complex characters with personal struggles that resolve with character growth throughout the book. There is just so much emotion within the pages and I really loved reading it. To Love and to Loathe is a wonderful historical romance and I highly recommend it!
