Dating You / Hating You
Dating You / Hating You | Christina Lauren
Alls 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 friends Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that theyre both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isnt enough to squash the fire. But when their two agencies mergecausing the pair to vie for the same positionall 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 professionalsso why cant 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 Laurens heartfelt, raucous, and hilarious romance style at its finest.

After showing up to a Halloween party dressed up as Hermione it quickly becomes apparent that Evie is the only single person there. Until Carter shows up dressed as Harry Potter. Their costumes aren't the only thing they have in common and it isn't long before they give in to their chemistry and begin dating. Things are going almost too well until the day their companies merge and they're pitted against each other for a position, winner takes all.

Focuses too much on the Hollywood agents industry and awful office treatment. Lovers to enemies to lovers. Eh.

Somewhere between a pick and a so-so. I do enjoy when the narrative switches between the two characters in a romance novel so that was a plus. It was fun but not a lot of depth.

Cute and easy read. Middle-ground for these books - enjoyed the setting of talent agencies in LA, but there were some plot points that were a little far fetched.

But then I read Christina Lauren and all of a sudden I want to get back out there, get all dolled up and give a tub of Haagen Dasz another go (P.S. why is Haagen Dasz the universal crap post date destination? Did they run a marketing campaign? Shitty time? Ice cream sounds fine?)

*ahem* Back to my review! I sort of love that CL can make me smile and laugh enough to think all that wine soaked Haagen Dasz MIGHT be worth the effort!!#romantsy

Not had a good day. Early this morning my dog Koda was hit by a car and sadly didn‘t make it. 😓 Trying to read to distract myself and Christina Lauren seems to do a decent job.

Grateful for the time we had, we rescued him from an abusive home and he was a trouble maker but I love him and going to miss him! ❤️ positive thoughts and vibes appreciated ❣️(Still too fresh to browse and post pics)

I‘ve enjoyed Lauren‘s work previously and Dating You/Hating You doesn‘t disappoint. I really enjoyed how adult and solid the relationship between Evie and Carter becomes over the course of the two of them working together. It‘s an adult relationship, with a bit of fun and games thrown in.

This audiobook was a ton of fun. I was a bit skeptical when I read the synopsis because it literally sounds like the plot (and title) was stolen from The Hating Game, which I adored. However, these books can live simultaneously, and if you liked one, you‘ll like the other. Great fluffy romances with a hint of women empowerment.

mcipher I loved The Hating Game - stacking this!! 1y
Kaylamburson Awesome! I must admit I liked The Hating Game slightly more, but still a really fun book. @mcipher 1y

swishandflick Yes!! I'd start with either Romancing the Duke or The Duchess Deal 👌🏽 (Also... one of my favorite contemporary romance authors is Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She's got this fun romcom style with witty characters I adore. I recommend all of her stuff but Kiss an Angel is one of my fav standalones) 😄 (edited) 2y

This was an entertaining book. Cute on-again/off- again romance with some steamy scenes.

I tend to read this type of book to keep myself from entering a reading slump. I look forward to reading their other one, Roomies, later this year.

Wallbanger might be slightly outside my comfort zone but it sounds hilarious. And not just a Disney valentines card but a Mickey Mouse Valentines Card 😍 #cupidgoespostal

New audiobook! I love smart, funny contemporary romance, so this is right up my alley but the career competition aspect gives me low level anxiety. 😬 Still, so fun!

MarriedtoMrT The career competition part is what has kept me from picking it up. Truly competitive relationships give me the metaphorical hives. 2y
leslieisreading @MarriedtoMrT I'm not finding the competition in the relationship to be that bad - mostly wacky hijinks that doesn't get too mean spirited, and they always really like each other. It's the sexist, manipulative boss who is truly causing me anxiety. Ack! 2y

Enemies to lovers might be my favorite trope. Especially if there is lots of banter. Pride & Prejudice, Moonlighting, The Hating Game, Beautiful Bastard. This was a fun addition to the list. What's your favorite enemies to lovers story? #romantsy

MarriedtoMrT One of the best is Her Best Worst Mistake by Sarah Mayberry (which isn't in the database. Bummer!) 2y
MarriedtoMrT I also loved 2y
Christy2318 @MarriedtoMrT Both of those sound good. Sarah Mayberry has been on my list to check out for awhile now. 2y

Chachic I love the enemies to lovers trope too! Some of my faves are Something About You by Julie James, Act Like It by Lucy Parker, The Chocolate Thief by Laura Florand. If you read urban fantasy, Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews is awesome. 2y
Christy2318 @chachic I just bought Something About You last night. Perhaps this is a sign to put it near the top of my TBR pile. I ❤️ Kate Daniels but haven't gotten to Burn for Me yet. Adding the others to my TBR list. 2y
Chachic Yas! You need to bump Something About You up the TBR pile. If you like it, you can catch up on the rest of her backlist.😊 Oh I'm a big Kate Daniels fan too. Hidden Legacy is SO GOOD. If you love Kate, I'm sure you'll love that series too.💖 2y
EloisaJames I just read The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson --great enemies to lovers 2y
