The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Review: I asked for this book for the holidays on a whim, mostly because I kept hearing about it everywhere I turned. So I got it and read it, and fell in love with it!!!
From the instant chemistry and friction all over the place, I knew that I was in for it with this book. Even now its hard to talk about it because I just want to read it again.
I think one of my favorite parts of this book was the competitive-ness, and sexy banter. I was loosing my mind to fits of giggles all over the place.
There was also a lot more then just the competitive banter and sexy times in this book, there was also a view into the publishing world (or at least more then one might think), and how close hate and love really is. Oh and there is a bunch about not really knowing someone and there always being more to a person then one would think. Okay guys, i just love this book and this review kind of sucks- mostly because I’m a bit tongue tied.
Just the way Lucy and Josh were together made me want so much more when the book was over, even though the end does not leave you on a cliff hanger (or that much of one). Just read the book since I have messed up this review of The Hating Game.
Favorite Quote: I couldn’t choose!!!
Would I? Buy this book for everyone I know? YES. Tell everyone about this book? YESSSSS!!!!

1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome;
2) A person’s undoing;
3) Joshua Templeman. Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.
