All’s fair in love and work. The first standalone romance by New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard) is a sexy, compulsively readable romantic comedy that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love.
Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.
But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it?
Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human? Whether these two Hollywood love/hatebirds get the storybook Hollywood ending or just a dramedy of epic proportions, you will get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, raucous, and hilarious romance style at its finest.
5 Reasons to read Dating You Hating You
- Instant chemistry. I love when you can feel the attraction jumping off the pages.
- The characters. I loved both Carter and Evie. They were easy to relate to, and had pretty great personalities.
- The circumstances. How often do you meet a person you vibe with only to find out that you’ll be working with them? And ultimately competing for the same job.
- The pranks. I’m not going to lie, they had me cracking up. I’ll never look at glitter the same.
- The sexual tension. These two have it bad for each other. And I loved seeing how it progressed throughout the book.
- The ending. So freaking swoon-worthy.
Okay, so I gave y’all six reasons. If you’re a fan of Christina Lauren, you’ll love this book as well. I’ll admit there aren’t as many sexy scenes as there are in other books, but the build up is well worth it.
