She’s charming and accommodating and prides herself on being loved by everyone at Bexley & Gamin. Everyone except for coldly efficient, impeccably attired, physically intimidating Joshua Templeman.

To the book that took three days of my life from me, it deserves the 5 stars, the kind of read literally anyone can enjoy. I need a stronger word than love. Obsessed? Infatuated? Giddy? Whatever, take your pick.

About The Book:

The story revolves around Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman, two executive assistants forced together when rival publishing companies merge, making their respective bosses co-CEOs. They spend their days antagonizing each other and verbally sparring. I laughed my ass off listening to their back and forth, passive aggressive banter. Right from the start, they had me completely glued.

For as long as Lucy can remember, she and Joshua have been each other's nemesis. It's their mission to one-up each other. They've been spending their time in the office playing little games to intimidate the other; The Staring Game, The HR Game, The Mirror Game, The Hating Game. The ultimate aim of the games? Make the other smile or cry.

Why I Loved The Book:

I was looking for a slow-burn, hate to love office romance, and this was it. I'm literally grinning and giggling as I'm typing this review. The story is neither too fast nor too slow, Sally takes us in such a delightful pace.

I loved watching their relationship change from hate to love.
The love and the feels. No unnecessary angst, just pure emotions that ooze from both protagonists.

Fave quote, there were several but this got to me

When you get so little of someone, you take what you can get.

Thank you Sally Thorne for making laugh out loud! And for making my life revolve around a book for three days. Good news there will be a movie adaptation soon!
