Now a movie starring Lucy Hale and Austin Stowell, USA Today bestselling author Sally Thorne’s 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.

    I loved the movie and I’m excited to read the book. There needs to be a sequel. I’d love to read/ see more of the Lucy and Josh story. I was disappointed to find out that there was not one planned.

    Felt drawn out and forced, why did they hate each other again? OH because they actually LIKE each other? Wouldn't call it the hating game if they didn't you know... hate

    The characters, the witty banter, the rivalry… I loved it so much.
  • Fun and Playful

    By Sweet Honey Rae
    Enemies to Lovers, except it’s not. It’s very well written and only a little spice. Makes you fall in love with the characters from the first page.
  • Cute story

    By Logstar9999999994
    This book made me laugh out loud, and I thought it was a fun, easy read. However, the ending was very abrupt, and I was left a little confused. It seemed like the author was setting up for an epilogue or a final twist, but then got tired of writing.
  • Adorable

    By Lazydrinker
    Shamelessly stayed up til 1am finishing this book. It’s the light hearted, adorable, heartfelt story I needed. Absolutely love and highly recommend

    This so the best romcom I have read in years. So funny and swoony, it is running through my head all the time now.
