Dating You, Hating You

By Christina Lauren

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Everyone knows that all's fair in love and war. But these two will learn that sabotage is a dish best served naked.

All's fair in love and war.

The first standalone romance by New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard) is a sexy, compulsively readable romance that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love.

Despite a meet-awkward at a mutual friend's 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 smother the flames.

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 thirty-something professionals-so why can't they act like it?

When push comes to shove and love fights with hate, will these two ever get their fairy tale Hollywood ending?

'A smart, sexy romance for readers who thrive on girl power.' Kirkus Reviews
