I Hate You More Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Ruby Taylor gave up pageant life the day she turned 18 and figured she'd never look back. But when an old friend begs her to show her beloved golden retriever at the upcoming West Coast Canine Classic, Ruby reluctantly straps on her heels and gets to work. If only she knew exactly what the adorably lazy lump of a dog was getting her into.
If there's one thing veterinarian Spencer Wilson knows in this world, it's dogs. Human beings are an entirely different animal - especially stubborn, gorgeous women clearly in way over their heads. As a judge for the local dog show, Spencer advises Ruby to quit while she still can, but her old fervor for winning has returned - and she's determined to show the stern, broody-eyed judge that she's more than just a pretty face.

What I Loved-
*The Audio- I Hate You More is narrated by two narrators.
Alex Knox (Spencer ) and Macy Sterling (Ruby).
This was my first time hearing either of these narrators and I think they did a fantastic job.
With a book that is told in dual perspective with a male and female lead I appreciate that two narrators were used.
Alex Knox and Macy Sterling entertained me and kept me engaged in the story.
This book was an easy listen. I was able to listen and multitask effortlessly.
*The Cover- The cover of this book is adorable. A+ for marketing!
*The Characters- I enjoyed all of the characters.
I loved how feisty and determined Ruby was to win the dog show.
I enjoyed Spencer and loved that he was a vet.
I was rooting for Wheezy!
If I had to pick a fave it would be Ruby.
*The Steam- This romance had the perfect amount of steam. I would categorize I Hate You More as a sweet and spicy romance.
Where This Book Lost a Star-
*The Conflict and Ending- I absolutely hated the conflict. I cannot relate to pretty people problems but also there is the fact that Ruby was lying to Spencer through out this whole book. When it is revealed he immediately forgives her but she can't forgive him for something that she is triggered by. I'm trying not to spoil anything. It was just frustrating.
Overall- Recommend. I'll definitely be reading more by this author.

Ruby Taylor walked away from the parent circuit a decade ago, we find her working as a nursing assistant in a nursing home, friendly with the residents content with life. That is until her favorite resident asks her to enter he beloved, yet lazy chunk, Wheezy in the local dog show and it flips her life on its head. Ruby has gone through her whole life with people treating her a certain way based on her beauty and assuming she is nothing but an empty headed blond. Ruby was one of my favorite characters I have read this year in my romances. She was strong, determined, stuck to her guns, and refused to give up when she was told something was impossible.
Spencer Wilson is a hot, grumpy veterinarian who runs the dog show. He is impatient, honest to a fault, rule follower and quite honestly the perfect person to balance Ruby. Hot on one page, awkward as heck on the next, it made him feel more human and real versus the typical male romance character who is strong/sexy all the time.
This book has everything: Cute twins who couldn’t be more different, Chonky pup named Wheezy, Badass/Determined Former Beauty Queen, an enemies to lovers story entwined with puppies on puppies on puppies. I Hate You More was such an entertaining romantic comedy! I flew through this in a day and loved every page! The cover immediately drew me in and then the blurb solidified my need to read this ASAP!
👏Thank you NetGalley/Sourcebooks Casablanca/Dreamscape Media for providing me an ARC in exchange for my honest review

Spencer Wilson, our hero, is a veterinarian, who is also one of the judges. When Ruby tries to register, Spencer takes one look and advises her that Wheezy does not belong at the show; especially detailing everything wrong with him, including not a pure bred. But Ruby is determined to show the grumpy judge that Wheezy will win the contest. She hires Caleb (Spencer’s brother) to train the dog; both Spencer and Caleb can’t take their eyes off of the gorgeous Ruby.
Ruby and Spencer in a short time have sizzling chemistry, though they get off on the wrong foot. Spencer is a nice guy, loves dogs, but is a stickler for rules. This is an enemy to lovers’ slow build romance. Ruby is smart, savvy, charming and always speaks her mind. When Ruby realizes that Caleb gets nowhere in training the impossible lazy Wheezy, it is Spencer who gives her tips, and she quickly learns that his stern voice gets all the dogs (and humans) to immediately pay attention. Spencer finds himself totally enamored by Ruby, who also finds herself attracted to him, and slowly their feelings become very sensual and wild.
Gilmore gave us some great secondary characters, including Wheezy’s mom, Ruby’s mom, Eva, Caleb, etc. Getting to know the relationships between the families and the elderly residents at the home was well done. But Ruby and Spencer were the show (with Wheezy), as the banter between them was hilarious.
I Hate You More was a fun, flirty, cute read, with some great characters, very well written by Lucy Gilmore. If you enjoy enemy to friend romance, with humorous banter, flirty sexual chemistry, I suggest you read this book.
