Release Blitz & Review - Dating You/Hating You by Christina Lauren



Dating You / Hating You



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.

Very cute. Evie and Carter first meet at a mutual friend's party and they hit it off despite being Hollywood agents and married to their jobs. But one morning they're both thrown for a loop when their companies merge and now they're both in competition for the final position - the other one will be sacked or possibly transferred. That puts a thorn in their budding romantic relationship.

I liked this story. I thought the zany hijinks were funny and I liked that they both maintained their integrity even though underhandedness could have been so easy. I like how CL brought to the forefront sexism in the workplace and how easy it is for even good men to not see it happening. I liked the originality of the profession being in a romance book. I've never read it before.

The only thing that bugged me was the ending. I wanted something a little more confrontational between Evie and Brad. But I ain't mad. Nicely done.
