Publisher Description

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?

A must read!

Absolutely fantastic! A perfect score for a perfect romance!

This is laugh out loud funny and tear streaming down your face emotional charged romance. You will not be disappointed in this book. Josh and Hazel are the perfect balance of opposites attract and that the best of friends can be the best of lovers.

Loved this book

It definitely had more ”descriptive events” in it than I wanted, but I still really enjoyed this story so much.

I loooooved this novel!! Absolutely one of my new top favorites.

The characters are amazing and the story is the sweetest thing ever.

Hazel’s personality is the best, and she’s probably my favorite novel character of all time.

Her and Josh’s friendship journey is adorable and I loved reading Josh’s feelings progress for Hazel and her wild personality.

The novel alternates pov’s from Hazel to Josh and it adds a cool twist to the feel of the novel, allowing a bit of dramatic irony. The author’s writing is smooth and very easy to read, I finished the novel in a day.

I certainly recommend reading!
