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.

Cool easy romance

It was a light—fun romantic book, I did enjoy the character development and the idea of competing in a game ending in love as a winner.

New Favorite, Hands Down

If you want to get caught looking like an idiot, smiling while reading a book (basically throughout the entirety of it), this is the one for you. My all time favorite book was Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover (who am I kidding, all her books are amazing), but The Hating Game quickly took that #1 spot. I could not put it down, I read it in less than 12 hours nearly nonstop, and never wanted it to end. The banter between these two characters is hilarious, the slow(ish) burn built anticipation and angst, but I never became frustrated wanting to rush to the “good part”. The entire book is the good part. Seriously, read this. Right now. But only if you have a day to spare... good luck putting this one down. 😉
