Book Summary:

Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy 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 has always been certain that the nice girl can get the corner office. She’s charming and accommodating and prides herself on being loved by everyone at Bexley & Gamin. Everyone except for coldly efficient, impeccably attired, physically intimidating Joshua Templeman. And the feeling is mutual.

Trapped in a shared office together 40 (OK, 50 or 60) hours a week, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous never-ending game of one-upmanship. There’s the Staring Game. The Mirror Game. The HR Game. Lucy can’t let Joshua beat her at anything—especially when a huge new promotion goes up for the taking.

If Lucy wins this game, she’ll be Joshua’s boss. If she loses, she’ll resign. So why is she suddenly having steamy dreams about Joshua and dressing for work like she’s got a hot date? After a perfectly innocent elevator ride ends with an earth-shattering kiss, Lucy starts to wonder whether she’s got Joshua Templeman all wrong.

Maybe Lucy Hutton doesn’t hate Joshua Templeman. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game. ​​

Addi’s Review:

I soooo so love this book!! It’s an enemy to lovers where you can tell they are “enemies” because they constantly banter, but it’s part of how they are with each other, and it just makes you feel envious of their relationship !!

And pleaaaaaseeee the nickname that Joshua has for Lucy?? Being called “shortcake” isn’t supposed to be cute, but it IS when Josh says it.

There was also a movie made, but I assure you the book is 100% better!!

I give The Hating Game 5 out of 5 stars.
