REVIEW – DATING YOU HATING YOU by Christina Lauren

SYNOPSIS

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.

His smile is warm and slow, and when it reaches his eyes, something inside my chest turns over in defeat.

 

 

 

DATING YOU HATING YOU is the latest “enemies to lovers” standalone by the dynamic writing duo Christina Lauren. It is packed full of their usual snarky banter, and a Hero and Heroine that readers are sure to fall in love with.

Evie Abbey and Carter Aaron meet at a mutual friend’s Halloween costume party. They instantly hit it off and end up going out on a date a week later, which turns out to be pretty phenomenal. Even though they are both Hollywood celebrity agents who work for rival agencies and they have a strict policy against dating people in the business, they can’t fight the chemistry that exists between them. Just when things couldn’t seem to get any better, the rug is literally pulled out from under them when Evie’s company acquisitions Carter’s. To make matters worse, it turns out they are now working in the same department and their douche of a boss is making them compete against each other for a permanent position on the team.

 

 

Their current situation at work makes it hard for the couple to pick up where they left off. Misunderstandings and extreme competitive natures on both sides have Evie and Carter constantly trying to one-up and playfully sabotage each other as well.

As hard as they try to bury their true feelings for each other, ultimately the building tension ends up coming to an impasse and the two end up sharing one wild night of passion together. When Carter and Evie realize that what they feel for each other goes way beyond physical attraction, will they be able to keep their common career aspirations separate from their personal lives? Or will they yet again focus solely on their careers and neglect all other aspects of their lives?
