The Hating Game: A Novel
Lucy Hotton and Joshua Templeman have been at each other’s neck since Gamin Publishing and Bexley Books have emerged to save them from financial hell. Both hate each other so much that it becomes small games for them, like “The Staring Game” and “The HR Game.” Lucy is sweet and friendly to everyone, while Joshua is cold and intimidating. These polar opposites were both notified of a promotion opportunity. Their relationship of constant one-upsmanship is altered when a earth-shattering kiss happens on a normal elevator ride. Lucy and Joshua now have to re-evaluate their “hate” relationship that might not be so full of hate anymore.
Sally Thorne’s debut novel was amazing. I really enjoy books with this trope, and this one has made it close to the top of my personal favorites. I loved Lucy’s personality and sense of humor, and those two elements were well portrayed in Thorne’s writing. I also enjoyed how this intimidating character of Joshua was so kind and vulnerable with Lucy and how he did enjoy their little games just as much as Lucy did. The banter between the two characters was fantastic. I do want to read more of Thorne’s works in the near future.
