APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Witty banter, behind-the-scenes peeks into a glamorous industry and two attractive, sparring leads make Dating You, Hating You a fun and sexy read. Evie and Carter are rival celebrity talent agents—and shamelessly exploit the rules of hard play. But even as they sneak around trying to trip up each other, their strong chemistry proves hard to resist. Christina Lauren has written another smart contemporary romance, avoiding romantic clichés with two genuinely diabolical leads waging sometimes hilarious office warfare.
The first standalone contemporary from Lauren (the Wild Seasons series) is an entertaining but uneven workplace romance in which the well-realized relentless atmosphere of Hollywood talent agencies provides the backdrop for a relationship that's in trouble almost as soon as it begins. Evie Abbey and Carter Aaron, both agents at different firms, hit it off after meeting at a friend's costume party and are eager to act on their robust chemistry. When their agencies unexpectedly merge and Evie and Carter find themselves in direct competition, their fling takes a detour into mischief and antagonism until they realize they have a common enemy. Their childish antics are sometimes amusing, but at other times their attempts at sabotage have exasperating consequences, and Carter's occasional obliviousness to the sexism Evie has fought throughout her career is particularly off-putting. On the other hand, Evie and Carter function well together when they're focused on the same objective, whether that's a night of fulfilling sex or an agency retreat, and their lively group of friends sweetens the deal.
Great book, just not as good as their other ones. Wanted more about the love and less about the work. But still good 😊
Fickle silly story
I can’t believe I read the whole thing. Should have deleted after the first chapter.
