Publisher's Summary

Love and hate are not opposites, but sometimes they’re born from the same fire....

Sean: Soldiers die, that’s just how it goes. It’s different when it’s one of your brothers. Team Maelstrom, my team, was broken when we lost one of our own. And now we have to sit around Stateside while the men in charge figure out what to do with us. When they find a replacement, I immediately know it’s not going to work. I can’t deal with this pain in the ass. I want him gone. It looks like I’m stuck with him, but I don’t have to make it easy.... 

Aidan: I didn’t ask for this. I don’t want this. I’ve been thrown into this dysfunctional team with a team leader who’s out to get me. The guy’s an ass, and he’s driving me crazy. I can hardly think straight when I’m dealing with him. Then everything changes when he pins me to a wall and kisses me....

Before Sean and Aidan can figure out what to do about that kiss, Team Maelstrom is thrown from the frying pan into the freezer. Fear and peril changes people, but will it change these two hot military men enough to keep the team alive? Can they work things out between them and get everyone back home in one piece? And what about the future?

A great enemies to lovers story

I love the series "Men of Fort Dale" and know now almost all the audio books, even if I have not listen to them in the right order. But that doesn't matter, because it works out quite well that way. This is partly due to Romeo Alexander's and John Harris‘ wonderful writing style and partly due to the storyline and characters.

Sean is the leader of Team Maelstorm, which has just lost a team member. No wonder the new guy on the team - Aiden - is having a really hard time. But Sean seems to hate Aiden and in order to test whether Aiden really fits into the team, he has to perform quite well. You can tell right away that the air is crackling when the two meet. Then it comes unexpectedly to a kiss, with which both have not expected. The two are really hot, but will they manage to settle their differences and keep the team together? During an exercise in the mountains, a fatal event occurs.

I absolutely loved this enemies to lovers story and was totally hooked from the start. I loved the chemistry between the two protagonists and their interaction.
The book has everything a good story needs: interesting protagonists, suspense, action, lots of emotions and hot sex. I listened to the audiobook in one day and I would have liked to listen to more.

The audiobook was narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo and it was - as always - an absolute pleasure to listen to him. I like the way he reads, he has a good rhythm and great intonation. He gives different voices to the characters and brings the book to life.

Great story, great sex

Even though the story was short I really enjoyed it. I liked the characters and how they interacted. Honestly the only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars is the narration. I know it’s not everyone’s preference but I felt a deeper voice was need for the narration. Again just my opinion, I would still recommend this book for anyone looking for a m/m romance.

Enemies to lovers.

This series is amazing!
I cannot say this is my favourite book in the series, but that’s mainly because enemies to lovers is not my favourite trope.
That being said I enjoyed many things in this book: when Sean and Aidan finally get their heads on straight and start to treat each other as actual human beings they discover they actually like each other a lot.
I loved the sense of camaraderie among the mean members that made it so that the two overly stubborn MCs become so much closer than they actually expected.

Not the Story I'd Expected.

After reading the first book, I really thought that this book was going to be Troy and Oscar's story. Once I got over my initial confusion I was able to really get into it. Michael Ferraiuolo always has this way of drawing me in with his narration.

I love an enemies to lovers trope and this definitely fit the bill. Romeo Alexander did a great job of articulating the void a team can feel when someone is missing and what it is like to fill that person's shoes. I would very much recommend.

There really is a thin line between love and hate

Some men find it more than a little hard to show their emotions - that goes double for military men whose very lives depend on being cool and calm under the most dangerous of circumstances.
After Sean and his team suffer a devastating loss, they slowly begin to break apart under the strain and pressure. And before they can come to grips with what has happened, a new team member is thrust upon them - someone who is carrying his own baggage and has no idea how (or why) he's supposed to fit in. Aidan doesn't know if he wants to be part of Team Maelstrom any more than the team knows if they want him. Push leads to shove and shove leads to...you'll just have to find out for yourselves!

Good Story Great Narration

I enjoyed this story, it has a nice flow, interesting characters and just the right amount of angst. I liked Sean and Aidan, each with their own baggage causing genuine enemies to lovers situation and conflict. Narrator did an amazing job giving these guys voices and telling the story, his narration turned a good story into a perfect listening experience. I am going to listen to book one in the Men of Fort Dale series while waiting for the next book to be released.

Enemies to Lovers

This is the closest book to a true I hate you to I want you book I've read in a very long time. You actually have that "I really don't want you here I'm going to break you and make you leave" vibe for a lot of the first of the book. 10/10 will re-listen.

I really enjoyed this.

Michael Ferraiuolo is one of my favorite audiobook performers. He can make a less than stellar book shine. Fortunately, Trust Me, I Hate you was a good story to start with. I loved the different voices that Michael used in this story.

I’m not a huge fan of enemies to lovers, or hate sex, but this was a really good book. The sexual tension between Sean and Aidan was palpable. There’s just the right amount of angst for me in this story. While parts had me holding my breath, and others shedding a tear or two, I loved the found family aspect and the HFN that Sean and Aidan got.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Sweet Heat

Such a great piece! I always love the characters Romeo and John bring to life in their stories. This series is an excellent one, and this installment fun and exciting. full of banter, spicy moments and relationship dynamics, this is another to add to your to be listened to list. And I mean like immediately. the main characters oozed chemistry and sexual tension from the very start. Romeo and John created a wonderful connection between them. As well as some twists and turns in the subplot , the plot was thick and heated. A great short listen! My favourite character had to be Aiden, so very relatable and endearing. Sean was that sweet hunky man you just love too, but Aiden was deep and thoughtful in so may ways. Michael is as always an excellent narrator and I can not get enough of him. He made everything about this story even better.

Good book

Hot army guys, even hotter kisses, and scorching hot sex? Yes, please. A little angsty, which I love, so I definitely recommend.

Hot

Short enemy to lovers story. It angts or comedy, but hot as hell. The se*ual tension was off the charts with this one. I do think they spent a lot of time in their own heads and the blurb kind of spoiled part of the story (they went on a mission only after 40% of the book). The team itself and the army were... Well, unbelievable. It throw me off a little off, but I could suspend my disbelief and carry on enjoying the novel.

What can I say about Michael Ferraiuolo... He is so amazing. It's difficult to find a voice actor who can do what he does. If a character is yawning, he yawns. If the character is laughing, he laughs. It's so perfect, I really love his narration.

Great enemy-to-lovers story and amazing narration

I had already read this story in ebook format, but the audio narration made the book even better: the tension between the main characters due to their 'I don' t want you here', and then the sexual tension feel even more real and very exciting.

Amazing audio, I would definitely listen to it again.

Trust Me, I Loved It

Romeo Alexander and John Harris created a great series to follow, can not wait for the rest of the series. Michael Ferraiuolo did an amazing job as always, nailed the voices for me.
