about the book
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.
I was so hesitant to try this book at first because of all the hype surrounding it. My expectations were high, and I didn’t want to be disappointed. Well, this book is worth every penny, and I can hardly believe it’s the author’s debut novel! I loved this book so much. I happened to be in a book slump when I picked it up, and it brought me right out of it. I didn’t want to put it down! The characters, the banter, the tension, the slow build romance. It was all fantastic, and I can’t wait to see what the author writes next!
The perfect enemies-to-lovers book that will make you laugh out loud one minute and swoon the next. Worth every bit of the hype.
