Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren

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.

4.5 Stars

There isn't a book that I don't love from these authors. They never fail to make me laugh with their witty and charming characters who always have great chemistry on the pages. And Carter and Evie are two new characters to fall in love with. 

Dating You/Hating You is a light-hearted romantic read that will have you laughing at the antics of these characters. Carter and Evie are set up by mutual friends, but being in a high-demand and stressful job in Hollywood, dating hasn't been on top of their to-do list. But when they end up meeting and hitting it off, sparks fly. But will it work when they are both in the same competitive profession? 

As much as they like each other, Carter and Evie find it difficult to make their blossoming relationship work. The demand of their working hours and now competing for the same position has them figuring out what is more important? Their career of their love life?

Overall, this book had me laughing and rooting for these two to find their HEA. They eventually do, but it's a wild and hilarious ride to get there.
