Publisher Description

USA Today Bestseller!

Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.

Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

                       2) A person’s undoing

                       3) Joshua Templeman

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

Hilarious and Unexpected

I kept deciding if I needed to give this story one or five stars. And that’s mainly because you got the sense they were already in love at the start of the story. I mean it was 28 chapters and Im thinking to myself “Yas. My favorite trope. slow burn me to death!” But then it got hot and heavy in chapter 5!! Even though I found Lucy’s obliviousness to be a BIT unbelievable and I never got the sense of how big the publishing house was, and the sex scene was a little shorter, I found myself absolutely smitten with Josh and smiling like Lucy at the end. Great read.

Hopeless Romantic

Highly recommend for those looking for a light read that will make your heart warm. Thorne’s writing style in this book feels like fresh air. She makes it effortless to never want to put this book down.

I read this book in 3 nights

Like how I titled this review, I could not put my iPad down for three consecutive nights. I fell asleep at 6 am every night/morning because this novel was amazing, and made my inner helplessly romantic self so overwhelmingly content. For three days, I would curl up in bed no later than 7, and stay up the whole night only to wake up at 8 to fulfill my off-duty college student daily tasks running on 5 cups of coffee. This is that once-in-a-blue-moon, special book that is so well-written, it is worth being sleep deprived for so long.
