Hate Me by Jillian Dodd: Review & The Keatyn Chronicles reading order

Hate Me by Jillian Dodd
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"Punch me in the face. It will make you feel better…"

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?

It's the truth. Always. No matter what….or who!

My Review
It's the truth. Always. No matter what, or who!
I build my reviews on a foundation of honesty and random hilarity, but my honesty comes at a price. Having developed many personal author relationships, voicing my opinion hurts. It hurts real bad. However, sincere candor is my promise, a promise I make no matter who wrote the book. I read every single book sitting at the proverbial round table of life. Everybody's equal.

If I was to rate this book based on love for the series and the talent of the author, a non contested five stars would be simple, easy. A sure thing, but Hate Me just wasn't my favorite of The Keatyn Chronicles.

It seemed to move slower than the rest of the series; the plot just wasn't as saturated. It felt more like a transitional book. Important in it's own right, just not as entertaining. However, a huge testament to the world that Jillian Dodd has created, is that I was still addicted; I still crave what's coming next. I gots to know!!!

I don't think Jillian did anything wrong here; it's more like she's setting us up for the big finale. Maybe this book was the calm before the storm. Don't get me wrong though, the ending did pack a major punch and made the whole experience worth it. The anticipation that Hate Me created is KILLING ME! Dead. Dying.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, this is one of the most frustratingly addictive series I've ever read! Maybe this one wasn't my favorite, but with a series of 6.5 books, there's gonna be at least one you didn't like as much as the rest, but the mark of a good, no, a great series is that you love it, even when you don't. It's an unconditional addiction!
