An Unlikely Office Romance

The Hating Game

by Sally Thorne.

Everyone hates playing games at the office. Or do they?

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman are executive assistants who share the tenth-floor executive suite. They spend their entire workday sitting across from one another. It shouldn’t be a problem, right? But there is a slight glitch in their work environment. They’re total opposites—and they hate each other.

Somehow, their work relationship has evolved into a competitive match of one-upmanship. The rules may change, but the game never ends. When they discover they’re both up for the same promotion, the stakes suddenly get much higher. And Lucy and Joshua acknowledge that “hate” is probably the wrong word for the feelings they harbor for each other.

This book is a humorous, contemporary romance that kept me chuckling over Lucy and Joshua’s antics. It’s not often that I finish a book as quickly as I read this one. It’s a story that kept me turning the pages, waiting for these two coworkers to realize that emotions are sometimes hard to label, and when you try, you can get it absolutely, totally wrong.
