The Hating Game is unlike any other book I’ve ever read in the sense that I felt literally compelled to read it twice IN. ONE. WEEK. I couldn’t get into anything else because I was convinced it wouldn’t be as good as Sally Thorne’s debut novel, so I just immediately read it again. I’ve never done that and probably won’t again any time soon but I can’t recommend this highly enough.
The Hating Game is the perfect summer read, and I will probably jump into it a third time on vacation this summer, I can already tell. It’s about Lucy (Lucinda) and Josh, two coworkers who are competitive at best and enemies at worst. When they both come up for the same promotion, things are bound to get worse, right? Not necessarily. As they begin to realize they might not hate each other, the real plot begins and AH. I’m not a romance reader generally, and it was only after tons of glowing reviews that I picked this one up, but wow.
It will make you laugh and feel all the things, and it’s well written. That’s rare in any book in my opinion, and this one really had it all. I can’t say enough how I wish everyone would read this one. Even if you aren’t into romances usually, it’s fine, neither am I, but you’ll love this one. The characters are so well-developed and I think that’s what made the real difference.
If you’re looking for a cute and light read to get you through the impending snow, I could not recommend this one any harder!
