Review: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

Buy on amazon here:

I am pretty much a bargain hunter when it comes to ebooks. Free or under a fiver and they suit me fine. I don’t know why I stretched my budget and took the plunge on this book.

Lucy Hutton, professional ‘nice girl’, prides herself on being loved by everyone at work – except for imposing, impeccably attired Joshua Templeman.

Trapped together in the world’s shiniest shared office, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive rivalry. There’s the Staring Game, The Mirror Game, The HR Game. Lucy can’t let Joshua beat her at anything, especially when a huge promotion comes up for grabs.

This is her chance to finally get the better of the man she can’t seem to get out of her office, or her head. If Lucy wins, she’ll be Joshua’s boss. If she loses, she’ll resign. The race is on – and the real games have only just begun…

Perhaps it was because my goodreads and amazon recommends were adamant that I would enjoy it. Damn you amazon. You’re always right!

I don’t tend to read conventional romantic comedy, much less romances that are set in an office. It reads too close to home for me, (I’m sat at a desk, yay!) but this one really appealed to me.

I laughed out loud, I loved the main character Lucy something fierce. She was gloriously immature in a way that made me relate to her.

The story is great: two PA’s stuck in an office together and competing for the same job. They hate each other. They play games with each other.

They fall in love.

The build up to the main relationship is worth a read and set this apart from typical romantic comedies for me.

Five out of five. Would bang Josh.

Definitely worth a read.
