A Love Hate Thing is a mid-burn story about learning what love truly is. Tyson Trice is a young man recovering from the physical pain of a gunshot wound, and the emotional pain of loneliness. Nandy is a girl still figuring out that what’s picture perfect for her, doesn’t have to fit neatly into other people’s frames. Despite the animosity between them when they first meet, they soon learn that even though they are very different, their love is the same. Both characters are fleshed out and the ending is a happy one. As a warning, there is cursing through out, but not heavily, and there are about three love scenes, although not explicit.
