The Hating Game

A Novel

Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.

Nemesis (n.) 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.
Portrait
Sally Thorne lives in Canberra, Australia and spends her days writing funding submissions and drafting contracts (yawn!) so it's not surprising that after hours she climbs into colorful fictional worlds of her own creation. Sally believes that romance readers are always searching for intensity in their next favorite book-and it isn't always so easy to find. The Hating Game is her first novel.

Cute romance

This book and I did not get off to a good start. In fact, about 50 pages in I even deliberated quitting.

I just did not care much for the hating game going on between Lucy and Josh, and the writing felt a bit overdramatic at times. But I'd heard so much praise for this book that I decided to keep going. And now I'm glad I did because shortly after the story started getting good. It all started with paintball day, really. And then the "hating game" turned into the "or something game" which I thoroughly enjoyed. That's when I fell in love with Lucy and Josh and their complicated relationship. Full of complicated, pent-up feelings and all those fears of letting go and being honest with each other. And all that tension between them!!! So basically, rough start and then it got good. If you like your romances complicated and intense and absolutely swoon-worthy then I'd definitely recommend this one!

Sally Thorne hat für mich persönlich einen Volltreffer gelandet. Das Buch hat einen grandiosen Humor und ich habe bei einigen Passagen Tränen gelacht.

Sally Thorne hat für mich persönlich einen Volltreffer gelandet. Das Buch hat einen grandiosen Humor und ich habe bei einigen Passagen Tränen gelacht. Die beiden Charaktere sind wirklich super beschrieben und man kann sich in einige Szenen perfekt hineinversetzen. Romantik darf natürlich bei einem Liebesroman nicht fehlen, aber dennoch ist der Roman nie kitschig oder zu rosarot. Das Buchcover finde ich super passend und mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Mein Fazit: ein toller Roman der Freude macht, durch seinen Humor und vor allem Wortwitz besticht!

A bit on the melodramatic side
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 11.03.2018

3,5 stars I loved Lucy and Jushua's little hating games. Their banter was funny, silly and very sitcom-like. But I did grow tired of those two towards the end, though, a bit too much drama.
