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.
“You look like you are cycling through a lot of things right now.”
“Like whether you should kiss me or punch me.”
“It’s a daily struggle.”
I have loved every book that Christina Lauren has put out. These two just draw their audience in and make them love their characters in a way that not many authors can do. I’m invested and anxiously await the beautiful story I’m about to consume. These two are flawless together when they write.
When ‘Dating You Hating You’ landed in my mailbox I felt like I won the lottery. I couldn’t wait to read this book. Evie and Carter were such a fun couple to read about. The witty dialogue and the adorably charming Carter who you couldn’t help but love. The story was unique and I couldn’t get enough. The story was only marked down to a 4.5 because I needed a little more angst then what was in this book. I missed that from their other books. Besides that it checked all the boxes for me. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
