If Hope wants to win the war for Liam with Steffy then she seriously needs to change her strategy. Telling Liam about Steffy and Rick's history was a stupid move on her part. All it resulted it in was his becoming even more concerned about Steffy. Now Liam will probably be keeping an eye on Steffy. No she shouldn't give in on her principles but the best way to keep Liam's attention would be to find the time at least a couple times a week with him and finding the small ways to show how much she loves him.
I heartily agree. Whining, putting down Steffy, and nonstop talking about Steffy will backfire. Liam has admitted he had feelings for STeffy. He cares about her and has given little comments that should clue Hope in on the fact that he doesn't view her like she does. If Hope were smart and mature, she would just enjoy spending time and showing Liam what he loves about her instead of trying to ram Liam into hating Steffy. Instead of showing Liam what he was missing and what she has to offer him and showing him all the things he loved about her, instead she is determined to try to force him to hate Steffy like she does. The thing is all she is doing is keeping Steffy on Liam's brain and he is already beginning to find himself wanting to defend Steffy. And seriously, after months of sex and fun and romance with Steffy, what man wants to sit and listen for hours and hours about the evils of his ex???
