Most men can’t handle Hazel. With the energy of a toddler and the mouth of a sailor, they’re often too timid to recognize her heart of gold. New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Roomies, Beautiful Bastard) tells the story of two people who are definitely not dating, no matter how often they end up in bed together.
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 thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. 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?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
From the writing duo 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 setup for the connection between the straitlaced 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.

I liked this the thing I liked most was that there was an epilogue which I feel gives a complete and final ending to show that this is the endgame relationship I like the way their relationship progressed and the dynamic between all the characters yes the girls a little out there but not too much in my opinion and it’s cute and funny the whole thing with the ex boyfriend was kind of unnecessary but I guess in all books almost characters can never straight up talk about their feelings and have to have a third person involved before they say anything
Laugh out loud
I absolutely could not put this book down (well my phone) I ignored phone calls and text messages. I was not to be disturbed read this story. Romance, acceptance, friendship... perfection writing this story.
Fell in love with these characters. Laughed so much! Would definitely recommend!
