USA Today Bestseller!

Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.

Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

                       2) A person’s undoing

                       3) Joshua Templeman

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

  • Astonishing

    This is the book that got me into reading. Now I can’t go back. It’s funny, steamy, and my personal favorite of going from hate to love. Two polar opposites, but you know what they say opposites attract. If you loved this book, I recommend “Fix Her Up” by Tessa Bailey.

  • Good read

    By apannini
    Usually I like fantasy more than pure romance but this book made me change my mind. I fell in love with this funny, cute, and sometimes sexy book. I have to say that I didn’t appreciate how the author kept pointing out how small and short the main character was compared to the muscular and tall love interest, but it is probably my bias since I am a fairly tall girl. I read this book in one day and could not put it down. The first chapter may seem slow but push through. You won’t regret this book! P.S. If you are looking for amazing writing, this is not your book. I liked the plot but the writing sometimes felt undeveloped.
  • Read this book!

    I’ve always stayed away from romance novels but I loved each and every page. I never wanted it to end. Cute, sexy, sweet, and loved the tone!
  • I’m wrecked

    By Alyxxmodell
    Usually it takes a lot for me to get so worked up about a book, and it is normally a several-book series and I’m so immersed that I feel like the main character. But The Hating Game wrecked my soul. It blew my brain to bits. I am sitting in the after-the-ending haze and I have goosebumps alighting all over random parts of my body. My calf, my scalp, my left buttcheek. I’m speechless and almost completely comatose. I’ve never loved a book so fiercely, so fast, and so completely. This Author has a new lifelong fan. I can’t wait to read literally anything else she writes, even if it’s her grocery list.

    I loved it the characters had so much chemistry it had me on the edge of my seat.
