Summary

A hilarious, opposites attract/enemies to lovers romance, The Fine Line Between Love and Hate will have you laughing and swooning at the same time.   

She's not a quiet librarian.  

My landlord is infuriating. 

He's uptight and rigid, right down to those dress shirts that do nothing to hide the muscle underneath. Sure, I never read the tenant's agreement. I have now. In fact, I've memorized it and I'm going to use it to my advantage while staying within the bounds of my contract. Is it my fault that those little decorative touches drive Charlie nuts? And who can resist purchasing a few vulgar gnomes to enhance the landscape?  

He's uptight and rigid.  

Note to self: Do not allow my mother to choose a tenant for my house ever again.  

She's the opposite of the quiet librarian I'm expecting. My tenant is outspoken, vibrant, and seems to get off on pushing all my buttons.  

It drives me nuts, but there's something there. Something that sparks a fire in me and when we're not butting heads those flames ignite.  

Whatever is happening couldn't possibly work. We're too different. I'm too set in my ways. 

Evie pushes me out of my comfort zone and she doesn't seem willing to give up, even though we hate each other more often than not.

Fine Line Between Love and Hate Complete Series

The Fine Line Between Love and Hate: The Complete Series

Evie moves into a rental house that is just perfect for her, at least until her new landlord leaves the first of several irritating notes on her front door. Charlie is shocked when the librarian his mother chose to be the new tenant in his rental house reacts badly to his reasonable requests. The lease on the house clearly states no changes are to be made to the flower beds or the lawn. After one too many notes, though, Evie decides to get revenge. You can only break a rule if you know what the rules are, so she arms herself with the rental agreement. The town of Mistik Ridge looks on in amazement as the rigid Charlie begins to bend to the will of the effervescent Evie.

If you're looking for a fun story with a wild librarian and an OCD school teacher, this is the book for you!

4 stars

While I really liked the story it was very predictable but still a enjoyable read. The narrator was easy to listen to even if she was bordering whiny at times. Not to her fault I think it was just the characters. Not as funny as I was expecting. The epilogue was sweet, but I got to say there’s no way I’d wait until 4 minutes apart. No way, and for him to be high handed and try to keep the epi away, there’d be bloodshed. So overall good but was hoping for awesomely funny.

Great Enemies to Lover Story

Charlie and Evie were attracted to each others as strangers. We they officially met, let the battle begin. Charlie is stuck in his ways and no one has ever said anything about it to him. Evie is a free spirit and wants to live life at its fullest. They start dating and neither if sure if they will last because they are opposites. Their relationship is hilarious and the use of gnomes is too funny. Great Narration.

Really enjoyed!!

Loved how she could push his buttons. I was amazed at the main character's patience but understood it after she talked it out in her head. Gave me advice to consider for my own relationship. All in all, the opposites attract theme worked great in this story. Loved it from beginning to end! The narrator did an amazing job. She gave off moods and emotions while keeping up with the flow of the story. Great book!!

love, hate & gnomes

It's all about the banter between these two and the gnomes (they are best part of this audiobook you have to listen/ read it to see why). To begin we have Charlie, an unbending jerky male (who seriously makes my jaw clench with his OCD and I'm totally OC) and the free spirited Evie make for a clash of funny romantic situations. You have the normal ups, downs, lovey stuff, disappointments, etc. but ultimately a HEA that is worked for. Narrator Heather Firth does a pretty good job of setting up all the characters and I found her easy to listen to.

Adorably laugh-out-loud funny!

This was a completely adorable story! Who would have ever thought these two could mix and mingle and not come out dead or dismembered! Evie and Charlie are so incredibly different! Evie was amazing and I could seriously see her and I being besties! I like her outlook on life. Charlie is... umm... uptight? Wound so tight he might just explode is really about right! His uptight ways made me laugh and roll my eyes... I just can't imagine. I'm surprised he doesn't have ulcers the amount he stresses.

Anyway, the narrator, Heather Firth was fantastic! She was upbeat and fun... just what this book calls for. There were some sections in the story that were so funny that you could feel Miss Firth's smiles! Enjoyed her narration a lot.

Librarian VS Teacher Against Garden Gnomes

The Fine Line Between Love and Hate is a frolicsome, opposites attract/enemies to lovers romance. This is a fashionable, innovative novel that is charming and so much fun to listen to. It will have you laughing out loud and felling giddy. I absolutely adored Evie and her peppy personality. I loved Charles and his uptight attitude. These two opposites attract and bring out the best in each other. I loved the comical banter between Evie and Charles. Supporting character's were campy and brought extra frenzy. I loved how each chapter had a title and told who was talking. With a perfect epilogue to wrap up this witty narrative.
Narrator Heather Firth did excellent voice changes for each character. The narration showcases a smooth, light tone, with a perfect pace. I absolutely loved listening to this audiobook and plan on doing a relisten. Looking forward to listening to more audiobooks from this narrator and author. I highly recommend listening to this audiobook as it brings happiness.

Sweet and cute romance

This was an easy listen. Great narration and a good story line. I liked that the male character wasn’t the embodiment of perfection but would have liked if the author delved a bit deeper into his ‘quirks’. It felt like the issue was being skirted a little. Loved and laughed about the garden gnomes!

Love and hate romcom

Really enjoyed this first book by a new author, it’s a quirky hate of ones landlord until Evie gets one look at him, only the first sight doesn’t reveal their relationship with one another and then the fun begins. Evie sounds like a girlfriend anyone who loves shenanigans would love. It’s a cute, and crazy love story of not giving up on love even with opposites in the mix. Charles is stuck in his ways, will Evie make him realize he needs to change, listen to find out what all the gnome is about, lol.

I’m going to check if I have any other audiobooks by Heather Firth, really loved her narration of both POVs, she shows amazing talent in expressing both views. Loved this audiobook, time well spent♥️

This is a funny little rom-com of how opposites attract! The quirky yet adorable heroine has to come to terms with her faults while forgiving the hero of his faults. On the other hand, the hero with his OCD tendencies has to learn to overcome his strict issues of insecurity and accommodate the differences of the heroine. The narration should be in dual POV and left something to be desired.

Who knew garden gnomes r romantic?

Charlie has asked his mom to find a tenant for his rental property and is pleased when she’s leased it to the new town librarian. That is, until he drives by his property and sees flowers planted in between his perfectly planted shrubs!! The horror!! So begins the battle of wills...Evie is quirky and fun loving and Charlie is just shy of OCD. Expect witty banter and lots of vulgar garden gnomes. Can these two compromise and find love? Great HEA!

My Two Pennies

Charley and Evie are absolutely hilarious together as they go back and forth with their banter. This is a great light read that is enjoyable from beginning until the end. Living in a small town has both its benefits as well as its downfalls but I think both Evie and Charley individually have a great support system with everyone. Guaranteed HEA that has me grinning ear to ear.
