In the spirit of Valentine’s Day this week, here are two reviews of enemies turned lovers novels.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Clues to describe this book: Workplace, Alpha, Competition, Funny
Review: I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked The Hating Game. This story is about two coworkers, Lucy and Josh, who supposedly get under each other’s skin and are competing for the same promotion. The narrative is told by Lucy the whole time. Both characters are extremely lovable, funny, and show a vulnerable side which is definitely relatable. The encounters between both characters are swoon worthy, witty, makes you feel giddy with excitement, and touching at times. The ending felt a bit abrupt for me, but overall it’s a fun beach read. If you’re a fan of romance novels, you definitely need to add this to your list!
Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey
Clues to describe this book: Doctor’s Office, Rivalry, Hometown
Review: I really wanted to like Anything You Can Do because the storyline sounded good, but I ended up being sorely disappointed. I couldn’t stand how immature and unprofessional the main characters were in this book. Neither main character acts his/her age. Daisy comes off as super childish and self-absorbed while Lucas comes off as very passive. There were a couple of funny moments in the story, however, many of the encounters came off as awkward and forced. The chemistry between them was lackluster and very anti-climatic. Skip this book at all costs. It’s not worth a second of your time.
