I'm working off my buttons.

But I'm also giving them away.

The more I fall for Crow, the more I want him to do the things that I want. Dinners, dates, and evenings at the beach.

Everything comes at a price, and quickly the hoard of buttons I worked hard to earn are depleted.

Will this go back and forth forever? Or will someone run out of their buttons first?

Beware, Possible Spoilers Ahead!

Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆

4/5 Stars. I can't tell if I liked this one more or the first one. The first one had more action than this one. Which I think does make it better. PS waited until like the last minute for any kind of action and left off with a cliff hanger.

I really enjoyed this book. It had the right amount of steam and just enough pain. I love it when dark romance focuses on just the pain. We like the lovey-dovey parts too!

TW: Abuse, sexual abuse, kidnapping, rape and murder.

Plot Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Buttons & Hate was mostly about Pearl and Crow finding their love together. Even though Crow swears up and down that he doesn't love her. Their relationship really blossoms in this book. They go from master and slave to two people who can't stand to be without each other. 

I just wish PS gave us more action instead of giving us more reasons to hate Cane. I wanted more fights and more killing. I wish their revenge started earlier. I just really hope the PS executes everything really well in the next book. 

Character Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

I don't think I could love Crow more than I do. I feel for him deeply. He's so scared to love and it hurts my heart. He's so strong and he doesn't even realize it. I can't even begin to believe that he doesn't think he's in love with Button. I just can't wait for the moment he pours his heart out to her.

Button is just getting better. She's grown to love Crow and will do anything to try and stay with him. That is, until he doesn't reciprocate her feelings towards him. She learns to protect her heart. And she becomes pretty bad ass. I can't wait to see what she does to Bones.

Writing Style: ☆☆☆☆

I absolutely love the two perspectives. I don't know what I would do if I didn't know what was going through both of their heads. PS's writing is so easy to read and you'll be so absorbed in that you won't want to put it down.
