Rating: 5/5 stars
I’ve been so eager to recommend this book to EVERYONE since I finished it at the end of 2017. And that’s exactly what I’ve done. Sally Thorne’s The Hating Game is quirky, hilarious, well-written and just downright PERFECT. I’ve never been one to claim a book boyfriend. That was until Josh Templeman. Sally created the ultimate book boyfriend when she created this man. He’s smart, sexy, funny and sensitive at just the right moments. He can’t exactly be those things, though, without his co-worker Lucy. Who’s every bit of funny, sexy, witty and smart. That’s why they’re so perfect for each other.
“The trick is to find that one person who can give it back as good as they can take it.”
The witty banter and sexual tension that exists between Lucy and Josh is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I laughed up until the very last page and cried when I realized it was coming to an end. This is without a doubt the best Romantic Comedy I’ve ever read.
“I hope it’s not too forward of me to say, but your eyes are incredible, Lucy. I die when you blink.”
Tally keeping. Nicknaming. Game Playing. Kiss stealing.
