'Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating is pure joy' Sally Thorne, author of The Hating Game
'Writing duo Christina Lauren are my go-to when I'm feeling sad' Beth O'Leary, author of The Flatshare
Just friends. Just friends. JUST FRIENDS. If they repeat it enough, maybe it'll be true . . .
Hazel Camille Bradford knows she's a lot to take - and frankly, most men aren't up to the challenge. If her army of pets and taste for the absurd don't send them running, her lack of filter and tendency to say exactly the wrong thing will. Their loss. Not everyone can handle a Hazel.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college. From the first night they met - when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes - to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.
Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there's nothing between them . . . right?
New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren tells the laugh-out-loud, uplifting story of two people who are completely wrong for each other - in all the right ways.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
From the writer behind wonderful contemporary romances like Roomies comes another hilarious and painfully relatable tale of love in the time of Tinder. A series of disastrous double dates provides the set-up for the connection between the strait-laced Josh and the endearingly quirky (and supposedly “undateable”) Hazel. Lighthearted as it might be, Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating is driven by real heart, clever dialogue and steamy scenes. It’s the perfect book for anyone who’s ever found the world of romance to be a ridiculous puzzle.
