Suggestions??!! please help me find a book that.....

I really like reading and I like every genre but i love romance, but the kind of romance that is witty and contemporany.. I like to see the kind of couples that hate each other at first but inevitably fall in love in the end. I already read the Twilight Saga, and the Vampire Diaries series too.. I ahve read many of the Nicholas Sparks noves (and all of them are great) so can someone help me with some tittle??!!!

Head Games is kind of an interesting love story, though it doesn't end all gushy.   Definately Evernight and Wicked Lovely.  Oh, try Gracling by Kristin Cashore.  And Skinned by Robin Wasserman, though the romance is more of a side thing.  :smileyvery-happy:

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan 

 

This book has harsh, crude language and the gritty feel of walking into a grungy New York nightclub. Don't be immediately turned off. Though it doesn't have that romance "feel" to it right away, the way Nick and Norah's relationship progresses throughout the story is enough to give hope to all us cynics out there. It does feature the progression from hatred to love as you mentioned. You can't help but root for these two characters as they tell the story from their own points of view in alternating chapters. This is easily one of my Top 5 favorite books of all time.

To Catch A Pirate was sooooo amazing! Yep, it's true! Girls can be kick a** captains on pirate ships! I just got annoyed when Anna was refusing to believe that her ship was a pirate ship! Hello, (spoiler) when you kidnap someone and hold them prisiner AND are searching for treasure then I think you are a pirate ship! Ha! I was so suprised about the ending!!!!!!! I thought I was just going to be depressed gor the rest of the night after I read it but that last page in the book totally caught me off guard!

(SPOILERS)  

She did want to accept that she loved James.. She did want to believe that she was acting against the law when she forged the signature and became the captain of a ship. But I really liked when James said that they were under his commend because he saved them. You know something I found really weird, the fact that James kissed her 1000 times and she did do anything, well she did slap him once but it was because he kept on teasing her after the kiss. But this was such a great story, I got pissed at both of them but then I could not believe what James did to Anna at the end when he stole the treasure from her (good thing he came back and saved her AGAIN. But over all I loved it and my favorite chapter is James!!! lol

If I tell you I will spoil it for you.. The only thing I can say is that it is really good and if you live romance, adventure, suspense, rivalry but most of all a hate and love relationship, this is the right book..

 I know! I was so suprised when he stole the treasure! I wish Jade Parker would write a sequel for they're adventures on the sea!
