Publisher's Summary

Jared is determined to earn the center forward spot on his new soccer team, but he faces fiercer competition than expected. Mark is taller and stronger, and his prowess on the field is unmatched. Worse, his cocky, smug attitude makes Jared want to punch him in the face. A battle begins that both Jared and Mark are determined to win. Jared despises his nemesis, but fate pushes them together, and Jared learns there is more behind Mark's hostility than he guessed. Hate at First Sight is a story about friendship and love found in the most unlikely places.

Another tear jerkier with a lot of laughs

Just a great HS story which would never happen in my HS and time period. It has a great many characters that I ended carrying about. I love the author.

Great Book Despite the Title

The author creates a delightful subversive high school world where a flaming homosexual is safe through a unique incentive program, and a soccer team and jocks accepted gay teammates. This is the kind of book where you wish the characters were based on real people because the world would be so much better if it were so. Well written and insightful as to mental illness and trauma during the high school years, this book was a joy to experience.

What kind of 9th graders are these!!!

I couldn't actually finish this book. It was so unrealistic and borderline disturbing! My first and biggest issue is that this is practically child porn. No one wants to think about 14 year old children in sexual situations! Also, the hints and jokes about incest are disgusting! If you can get past that, the story is sooo unbelievable. 6'4 ninth graders with beards! I just can't!!! I rarely give up on books without finishing them, but this was just awful.

What did I buy?

This is not my kind of read.
I do not know how this was subjected to me after reading one man guy. This is fringe romance and erotica. Also from chapter one it is so plain how low level the writing style is. It became clear this book is for sensationalism and not quality enjoyment by chapter two when it went from coming of age story to porn. This is genre writing and not universal and exclusionary to a small readership, this coming from a gay reader.

Surprisingly good ,

In between the cliches and cheese fest is a really feel good story, Dillon's character worked well, think mean girls meets Eating out
