Book: Dating You / Hating You
Author: Christina Lauren
Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.
But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it?
Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human?-Goodreads
Review: Carter and Evie are both talents in LA. They meet at a friend's Halloween party and hit it off. I loved how they met and loved their dynamic. Their companies end up merging and they find themselves competing for the same position at work. There is absolute tension as they try to impress their boss, serve their clients and try to ignore the sexual tension between them.
This was cute. It was more of a book about the talent industry in LA with a side of romance. Christina Lauren books are known for their humor but other than chuckling when they first met, I never laughed again. They end up playing pranks on either other that I found mean spirited than funny.
Overall, a cute, fast read.
