About Guy Hater
From New York Times Bestseller, J. Sterling, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.
Frank Fisher is quiet, pensive, and sexy as hell. He’s also stuck in a loveless relationship, bound by a promise he made years ago. It’s one he intends to keep, no matter the cost.
The night Claudia walks into his bar, both his life and his perspective are forever changed. She’s feisty, strong, independent and everything he never knew he needed. She’s also everything he never knew he wanted, and now he’s torn.
Will Frank follow his heart, or will guilt and obligation continue to rule his life? Choices aren’t always easy, especially when you’re a man, and Frank’s indecision may cost him more than he’s willing to lose.

I’ve been eagerly anticipating Guy Hater since I read the first book in the series. I wanted to get to know Nick’s older brothers better. Their owning a trendy bar together and having so many cool things about it made for an amazing setting. I couldn’t wait to be back in that world.
Which makes me a little sad to say I didn’t absolutely love this book. It was a fun, quick read. I had a fun time reading it. There was just one major problem with it for me: a love triangle. Well, not exactly a love triangle, but Frank was already in a long-term relationship. He wasn’t happy, but I still didn’t love the fact that meeting another woman was what sparked him into break up action. I understood Frank’s situation and even could even sympathize with him, but I still didn’t like it. I wished he would have been free and clear before beginning even a friendship with Claudia. He was supposed to be such a good guy, and the way he handled it all didn’t say “good guy” to me.
Claudia was a cool chick. I felt bad for her at the beginning of the book. I could see the let down coming for her, and it made me sad for her. I loved the way she handled the entire thing. Her forgiveness was hers to give, and I like that she didn’t take it lightly. Claudia had a backbone and wanted to do the right thing. I am so happy J. Sterling gave her those characteristics.
Despite Frank being an idiot for half the story, I still loved the connection between Frank and Claudia. They had great chemistry. You could feel their attraction and the way they got each other immediately. The relationship they began to build felt strong and right.
Another thing I really loved the camaraderie between friends and brothers in Guy Hater. Claudia and her roommate had a fun relationship, but they were also there for each other when they really needed it. The same can be said for Frank and his brothers. I loved that they helped talk some sense into him.
Overall, Guy Hater was a good read. I loved being back in the Fisher brothers’ world. I can’t wait to see what’s next for the last brother to find love, Ryan. I know his story is going to be epic.
About the Author
I got fired from my last job.
I know you’re sitting there thinking, “Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone like you?” And I’d love to give you a good reason, but the truth is that sometimes being all sorts of awesome isn’t fun for other people. They don’t always tend to like it. lol
So I picked my pride off the floor, bought a laptop and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing stories that meant something to me was a million times better than working my ass off for someone who didn’t really care about anything other than the bottom line.
My soul has never felt more satisfied.
My heart has never been more full.
I’ve never worked so hard in my life, but I love every second of it. I truly do.
It is SO worth it.
All of it.
The journey it took to get to this point- I wouldn’t change a thing.
