OH MY! This novel debuted in August 2016 but it’s a Top Read 2017 for me! It’s a slow-burn, enemies-to-lovers, office romance.

“I have a theory. Hating someone feels disturbingly similar to being in love with them.”

Joshua Templeman is tall, dark and handsome, but also humourless, icy and unrelenting in his pursuit to make Lucy’s life a misery. From the first day they met, when he completely blanked her sunny smile, they’ve been rivals and enemies. They play games of one-upmanship and tit-for-tat.

“I’m getting dangerously high on his smiles. This is my third one now? I’m stuffing them in my pockets. I’m cramming them into my mouth.”

Lucy Hutton is a five-foot-nothing firecracker who resembles a Disney princess. She gives back as good as she gets but, deep down, yearns to be Joshua’s friend. Why didn’t he want to be her friend? They sit day-in day-out playing various games – the Mirror Game, the Staring Game, the HR game. Lucy thinks the aim of the games is to make the other one smile. That was never Josh’s aim.

When a new promotion comes up for grabs, the Hating Game begins, but one insane, hot moment in the elevator throws Lucy completely off-kilter, followed by a night of sickness where her enemy shows a hidden side to himself, and her view and perception of Josh starts to unravel.

“Shortcake.”
The sweet little word dissolves and I swallow.
“I’m not going to kill you. You’re so dramatic. “ Then he presses his mouth lightly against mine.

I just LOVED everything about this book!! It was refreshing and I adored the author’s writing style. I found the story funny and moving.

If you love old school slapstick romance, I'm talking the Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant "The Philadelphia Story" style of banter and fighting, you will love this. It's hilarious, sweet, and so very sexy. It's been on lists for the top romance books of 2016, and even though I normally never go for modern office-based pieces, this one lives up to the hype. Enjoy it with a strawberry shortcake and a glass of Moët.

Awww! Loved this book! The hate Lucy and Joshua have at the start of the book practically drips off the pages! So much tension and just the right amount of angst build up gradually but the story doesn't drag. It kept me captivated from start to finish and that elevator scene WOW! PHEW! I'm saying no more 😉 I would say this book is almost like a slow burn so if you're a slow-burn kind of girl give this book a whirl! A truly brilliant first book and I eagerly await further work from this author👏👏👏

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
5 stars!!!

“My hostage. My blackmailed, unwilling captive. Stockholm Shortcake.”

There is nothing like a good hate/love book to get your reading mojo well and truly pumping and that is exactly what The Hating Game delivered. Sally Thorne captured everything about those office relationships where competition takes on a whole new meaning and to think that this is her debut novel, I was totally blown away.

Enemies to lovers is one of those tropes that literally has me salivating. You learn more about a person through their actions in that kind of environment, especially in the work place. It is harder to hate than it is to love and there is often a very fine line between the two. Sometimes there is that genuine hate, because let’s be honest, there are a lot of douches and b****es in the world, but more often than not we hate as a veil of our true feelings and that was definitely the case with these two.

“Shortcake, if we were flirting, you’d know about it.”
“Because I’d be traumatized?”
“Because you’d be thinking about it later on, lying in bed.”

Two publishing houses struggling in the economic climate merge to ensure the viability of at least one of them, two CEO’s, two assistants. One male assistant, one female assistant who knock their a**es out week after week to be the best. This was all about one-upmanship. Who could work the longest hours, who was more efficient, who has the best ideas etc.: Their competitiveness was the source of many hilarious scenes, yet so relatable having been in a similar environment myself.

A wonderfully written story that I couldn't put down. Sally Thorne did a wonderful job of creating some really likeable, fun and relatable characters and their development throughout the story was well thought out, beautifully presented and appropriate for what we had come to understand about them. The story is written from Lucy's point of view and there was great personality and humour in her thought processes. Some parts of the story were a little repetitive, but I never bored of the telling, everything flowed well and I was excited to see the story through at the same time as wanting it to to last for as long as possible. I am excited to see what future stories Sally comes up with, as this was a fabulous read.
