However, I did find both the ending and the 'reveal' to be predictable so while nothing really came as a surprise to me, I still have to give major kudos to the authors for making this book addictive even though I knew what was going to happen. Evie was a really great female lead and I was rooting for her the whole time. It was one of the best romances I've ever read. Now, if I could just get more of this author's titles on my reading schedule. Carter and Evie have a complete meet-cute when they are the only singles at a party and both come as Harry Potter characters. Unfortunately, this one just didn't do it for me.
I loved the characters and the romance, and the relatability of being 33 and behind on life. The way Evie and Carter would pick on each other was immature and childish, in an obnoxious way that got on my nerves. He stares at me with a slow-growing amused grin. I would love to get to know you better but I find it hard to communicate often on here. Check them out and if you come across someone who displays these types of behaviors stop your communications and report him or her right away.
Their draw towards each other was palatable and I really loved their romance. Also I love Evie and how she bought 3 doughnuts to eat in the morning like literally me too man. I was smiling my way throughout almost the whole thing. Their rival agencies merge overnight and suddenly they're being forced to compete for the same coveted position. When Evie's friend sets her up with Carter, at a Halloween party, Evie is initially embarrassed but can't help but admit that they've hit it off.

Plus, I felt that the story gave a really fresh, modern portrayal of adulthood. Would I read about her complaints how old she was and how young he was? With their usual banter and great humor, the authors capture the essence of the competition and the fire that burns underneath. Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? My subscription ends… But you could leave your emall? I was a bit on the fence when news about this book first came out because the blurb reminded me of , one of my absolute favorite books. Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? After two companies have been merged, the heroine and the hero of this book find themselves competing to keep their job. Misunderstandings and extreme competitive natures on both sides have Evie and Carter constantly trying to one-up and playfully sabotage each other as well. But although this particular book was reliably fun, sexy, and well-written, it fell a bit short of my expectations and ultimately left me with some niggles when it came to the characters and their behaviour throughout the story. Texting a cute agent down the road.
Dodging calls from my parents. Whether you're a long-time fan of these authors or you're new to them, I'd definitely recommend trying this out! All bets are off and things turn into one big circus. Both of them are married to their job and when their jobs were on the line, things changed. It takes him a bit but Carter finally gets it. There's something about holding a book that makes it feel extra special. I think because I anticipated it and was enjoying all the other aspects of the book , I found I didn't mind it as much. I loved the aspect that it follows 2 Hollywood agent's and really liked reading about their job! Scammers also run amok on dating apps.
It was snappy, witty, intelligent, and addictive! What are you looking for in a man? Also, this story is so much more focused on the work and the business an their jobs than on the actual romance itself - which made it incredibly boring for me at times. I love the adorkability there. I thought each voice was well done and really felt a connection to both of them. I kind of went into this book expecting the whole thing to be a light-hearted, sexy enemies-to-lovers romp -- almost more of a fun, fluffy read. Fans of the amazing writing duo, Christina Lauren, are in for an entertaining read with this story.
Carter and Evie were both very strong, career-driven character and I loved their chemistry. Christina Lauren fans are sure to enjoy this one! Demand equal pay and recognition for your hard work. I'm so tired of wanting to shove him into the wall and then shove my hand down his pants. And yes, many parts of it were that. It will be a pleasure to know you. And you have to sympathize with them when their boss who is completely hateable pits them against one another. It was more than just the nerdy glasses and ugly striped tie that got me, it was Carter himself.
It would make feigning indifference so much easier. It got frustrating after so many times. So it was interesting to be introduced to new ch What a great story! 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. It keeps the delicate ones away. And I loved reading about the injustices and sexism women still face in the industry regardless of their skills and talent. I'd like these people if I met them, more because of their imperfections. I would recommend Christina Lauren's Wild Seasons series over this, or by Sally Thorne if you're looking for a good office romance.
Things get even more complicated when their firms merge and the two end up pitted against each other for the same position and it becomes difficult for them to reconcile their romantic feelings with the problems at work. I see a lot of people already comparing this book to but the only thing this book has in common with The Hating Game is that it's an office romance that follows a male and female lead who are competing for the same position. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Gives a lot of details about his or her life in the first message. I also thought the portrayal of work place sexism was pretty well done and Carter's eventual realization of what was happening and attempts at acknowledging it and trying to help was pretty cool. I wanted to weep when I was on the last page.
I'm just completely shocked that I didn't love this. Dating you hating you is a great mix of witty banter, chemistry, and some angst and I of course recommend it to anyone who likes romance, enemies to lovers, and really - just well written books. I am small but my laugh is mighty. . My number is 5555555555 I hope to hear from you soon.
