Title: Dating you Hating you
Author: Christina Lauren
Publication: June 6th 2017
Pages: 350 pages
All’s fair in love and work. The first standalone romance by New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard) is a sexy, compulsively readable romantic comedy that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love.
Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.
But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it?
Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human? Whether these two Hollywood love/hatebirds get the storybook Hollywood ending or just a dramedy of epic proportions, you will get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, raucous, and hilarious romance style at its finest.
My RATING: 3/5 STARS
I was provided a copy of this book from Simon and Schuster in exchange for an honest review.
I want to start of this review by stating that I was very conflicted about this book simply because of a few things. First, I am in love with Christina Lauren’s writing style from the beautiful series that swept up our hearts and made us eat out of the palms of their hands. However, I feel that this time around, the writing style is a lot more different. It lacks fluidity. It’s more explaining and telling rather than showing. This makes the story drag on for quite a bit throughout, leaving readers and myself to find it kind of boring. In fact, I actually had to put this book down many times, force myself to read fifty pages, put it down, and then start all over again. It took me a few days to get through this and to me, that’s extremely rare. If I enjoy a book, I’m finishing it in one sitting. I’m not a quitter. LOL
