And any romantic feelings they had start to become replaced with animosity, jealousy, and a bunch of humorous office pranks that leave them trying to constantly one up the other.
I'm so tired of wanting to shove him into the wall and then shove my hand down his pants. Because you like him, my brain teases in a sneering whisper.
Really, really like him. My brain is such an asshole. As someone who works in an office setting, I can tell you I related to a lot of her issues and just wanted to high five the girl for all she put up with! Carter was such a charismatic and sweet hero.
There was no way Evie or me could help but fall for the guy. He's got charm in spades. I've got a few ideas. Small but mighty. Unassuming but poised.
I really wish I could fucking see her without it feeling like I've had the wind knocked out of me. It would make feigning indifference so much easier. Shout out to all the side characters too! They were just fantastic especially Daryl. Dating you hating you is a great mix of witty banter, chemistry, and some angst and I of course recommend it to anyone who likes romance, enemies to lovers, and really - just well written books. Dating You Hating You is out today!! After two companies have been merged, the heroine and the hero of this book find themselves competing to keep their job.
To make matters worse they are very attracted to each other. So who is going to stay and who is going to take a hike? I didn't really finish reading this one because I was too bored to continue. I think this book is more fitted for a RomCom movie vs. I would probably finish watching it too. But to dedicate hours of my life into reading it View all 20 comments.

Review at Of Pens and Pages. I was a bit on the fence when news about this book first came out because the blurb reminded me of The Hating Gameone of my absolute favorite books.
How to Seduce Someone on a Date
Now that Ive read it, I think its safe to say that the only relevant similarity is the competing against each other ct of the story. And thats only a 5 stars! Two single talent agents in competing agencies meet at a Halloween party filled with couples.
Despite their jobs, a connection is made, numbers are exchanged, and a week later, a date is set. This book made me so happy! The characters and situations were relatable, the characters likable, and the story had a great pace and flow that made me tear into this book page to page.
Finished this baby in one sitting! I wanted to weep when I was on the last page. Oh, the bittersweet feeling of finishing a book. This is definitely a more mature Christina Lauren, but the humor, effortless banter, great characters, and sizzling sexual tension are still there. I could feel the emotions seeping through the book-anger, joy, lust, longing.
Plus, Carter made me swoon! And I loved reading about the injustices and sexism women still face in the industry regardless of their skills and talent. Evie was a force to be reckoned with, I want to be like her one day. Christina Lauren fans and contemporary romance readers will definitely enjoy this entertaining, sexy, and laugh out loud book.

Christina Lauren is one of my favorite authors of all time, so it kills me to say I didn't really enjoy this book.
I see a lot of people already comparing this book to The Hating Game but the only thing this book has in common with The Hating Game is that it's an office romance that follows a male and female lead who are competing for the same position. This book follows Evie and Carter and they are both talent agents in Hollywood, trying 2.
This book follows Evie and Carter and they are both talent agents in Hollywood, trying to find the next big thing in Hollywood. This storyline should be right up my alley because I love reading books that take place in Hollywood and involve the movie scene, but this book ended up being kind of boring I didn't really care for either Evie or Carter in this book, and I especially didn't care whether or not they ended up together.
I didn't see the chemistry between them, which is shocking because Christina Lauren has written some of my favorite fictional couples ever, but this one just didn't do it for me. Also, this story is so much more focused on the work and the business an their jobs than on the actual romance itself - which made it incredibly boring for me at times. The way Evie and Carter would pick on each other was immature and childish, in an obnoxious way that got on my nerves.
It got frustrating after so many times. The one thing I really liked about this book is how it talks about women vs. It really dives deep into this topic, and at times I thought it got a little too political for a new adult romance, but I appreciated it nonetheless. The ending was very predictable, I saw it coming from a mile away, and it was cheesy.
I'm just completely shocked that I didn't love this. I barely even liked it. Unfortunately, this one just didn't do it for me. Also, this kind of sounds similar to The Hating Game and I loved that book so that makes me even more excited.

And the pretty cover was the icing on the cake. These two were set up at a costume party by well-meaning friends. This is one of those situations. All bets are off and things turn into one big circus.
I hate it there.

Mar 19, Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: library Carter and Evie have a complete meet-cute when they are the only singles at a party and both come as Harry Potter characters. I love the adorkability there. And you have to sympathize with them when their boss who is completely hateable pits them against one another.
Carter isnt a jerk.
DATING YOU HATING YOU is the latest enemies to lovers standalone by the dynamic writing duo Christina Lauren. It is packed full of their usual snarky banter, and a Hero and Heroine that readers are sure to fall in love with. Evie Abbey and Carter Aaron meet at a mutual friends Halloween costume party/5. I very much enjoyed "There's Something I Want to Tell You." While it is about dating, I think anyone that wants to understand the Japanese mind better could benefit. Even if not, it's a lot of fun to hear these real couples talk about real problems. Dating across cultures must be difficult, but dating a Japanese person, doubly so/5(21). A research-based guide to navigating the newest dating phenomenon-"the love gap"-and a trailblazing action plan to help smart, confident, career-driven women find (and keep) their match. For a rising generation young women, the sky is the limit. Women can be anything and have everything. They are outpacing their male peers in higher education /5(24).
Over the course of this, Carter and Evie push and pull at each other. And I also enjoyed the way they personally found their inner strength to start to stand up for what they truly believed in. A great read! Entered on screen reader. View all 6 comments. She meets Carter Aaron, a television literary talent agent at CT Management, when they both attend a costume party hosted by mutual friends and they're the only singles.
Turns out they really clicked, even though they worked for competing agencies.
When circumstances play a cruel joke and they end up not only working together but in direct competition for the same job, things get What I really loved about this story was its authenticity. Most of us know how cutthroat the Hollywood industry can be so there's no way to avoid having two successful people not have a little larceny in their souls.
Evie and Carter react so honestly when thrust into situations where their personal and professional relationships are tested. Add in a truly repugnant, sexist manager who has it in for Evie and the resultant brew is toxic. These two resort to pranks and other silly games to one up each other for a time and some are hilarious but mostly just not who they are.
Balancing a secret personal relationship was challenging and it rang true. But mostly what's on display is the disparity in the treatment of women in the workplace. It takes him a bit but Carter finally gets it. Seeing it played out from his point of view was enlightening. He's a good guy and still moves slowly to call it out. It doesn't bog down the story and realistically portrays how women adjust to their unfortunate normal. While I have other books by the author, this is my first read.
Now I understand what all the fuss is about. The characters and situations are crafted intelligently with a careful lens through reality. I'd like these people if I met them, more because of their imperfections. The two narrators, Shayna Tibodeaux and Deacon Lee, became these characters and represented them perfectly. I'm so glad I opted for the audio version!
I enjoyed the characters, their relationships, the humor and the story they lived. Now, if I could just get more of this author's titles on my reading schedule. I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review View all 10 comments.
Apr 26, Jacqueline's Reads rated it really liked it Shelves: arcfunnyarc-paperback. My reading was effortless and at times it felt like I wasnt even reading, I felt like I was a part of the story and going along for the ride. I love this low muss and low fuss kind 4.
I love this low muss and low fuss kind of reading. I also liked how well developed the story and the characters were. Carter and Evie meet through mutual friends at a party. They are also both Hollywood agents. I really liked that they are agents. I felt like it was a new and refreshing profession to read in a romance book. The thing with Carter and Evie is that if you share the same profession with your significant other, there will be competition one way or another. Everything that happens in the book happens for a reason and it made the book easy to read.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and I felt like anyone could read it. Not gonna lie this gives me The Hating Game vibes, and I am here for it! Also, my first Christina Lauren book, which one should I read next from them? Jun 14, Heather rated it liked it Shelves: adult-romance-chick-lit.
I loved the ct that it follows 2 Hollywood agent's and really liked reading about their job! This book also talks a ton about sexism in the workplace which def. The chemistry between the 2 characters was sizzling and there were some steamy bits in this book as well.
Dec 31, Sara sarawithoutanH rated it really liked it Shelves: I loooooved this! It was one of the best romances I've ever read. I loved how plot-driven it was and I liked both of the main characters. Evie was a really great female lead and I was rooting for her the whole time.
The setting of a Hollywood agency was super interesting and I enjoyed that there was even a little enemies-to-lovers situation thrown in. I'm kinda tongue-twisted on what I should say to describe this wonderful creation and not spoil it at the same time. But I gotta start somewhere. So here we go It's just so straightforward about the story overall. Besides the guy in the cover is cute. So, I'll give one rating here.
The backstory: Well the backstory is pretty interesting. Girl meets guy at a friend's party. They both hit it off and even start planning their wedding vows Well. They both hit it off and even start planning their wedding vows kidding somewhat. But then the plot twist shows up when they are each other's rivals after a merge. God it makes everything so darn more interesting. No CEO crap, no secretary, just two employees simply acting like two grown adults who like and hate each other.
So definitely points to that. The romance: Well it's more of a slow burn in the beginning but then the tension increases, and it's almost got me hooting and rooting for them hard!
Especially the dialogues, and the alone moments they rarely got, just made me swoon so hard. The personalities, the characters themselves: Well Evie's personality is definitely something of a controlled, cool and calm working woman even though she's been undermined a lot by her boss and colleagues. But she's still chill, fun, and hardworking, a likeable personality. As for Carter, a witty, cocky, underestimated, but hardworking as well guy.
He's been definitely been dealt a lot of bad cards courtesy to his family and job. But otherwise a joy to read about. They're both tons of fun to read about, relatable, and aspirational. The ending and other ends tied in: Well the ending is obviously a happy one, but with their issues and own differences worked out. The side characters are absolutely wonderful. Michael Christopher with Steph and their children are so cute, sigh.
Daryl and Eric please, a story, I love them so much? Amelia is funny as well, I hope she finds her soulmate, she deserves it. And I crave more Christina Lauren, sigh, so damn badly. Damn them for becoming an addiction. But you get the point. Until the next read, -J. View all 5 comments. New trend - age-shaming?

See a Problem?
It was so cute and funny. I was smiling my way throughout almost the whole thing. Ok, first I need to talk about the part I found really relatable. Other than the fact that she has an actual career and not a dead-end job she hates, ahemit was like she was describing all of my inner life panic.
I loved this passage, which is basically all things I have thought at I had so much fun reading this book! I loved this passage, which is basically all things I have thought at one point or another: I try to ignore the pressure to be coupled up, but it's everywhere There's my own biological clock, quietly yet persistently ticking away But of course there's that niggling voice suggesting I not care about any of it, that maybe I should give in and buy the cats instead.
The problem is that I don't like them. I may be a terrible married person someday, but I know for sure I would be an even worse cat lady.
I was just trying to figure out whether I could still be a crazy cat lady without the actual animals. Evie and Carter were great main characters and I really enjoyed all of their friends and family, as well. I thought each voice was well done and really felt a connection to both of them. I thought they had great chemistry and I shipped them right away.

This wasn't really the Hate-to-Love story I was expecting. While I loved Carter - Loved him - he did have several moments of great dickdom, so I was able to hate him when Evie did. As anyone who reads many of my reviews knows, I am not a fan of lots of graphic sexual content.
I've only read one other book by this author duo before and based on that I knew going in that there was going to be some scenes like that.
Dating You / Hating You
I think because I anticipated it and was enjoying all the other cts of the bookI found I didn't mind it as much. There was actually less than I thought there was going to be.
The one thing besides the graphic stuff that kind of bothered me, though, is that I was expecting more behind-the-scenes information on Hollywood and working as an agent.
Other than the mention of some actors and making big deals, there wasn't really a lot of details. I felt like this could have been set in any other type of industry and the story would have come out the same. I felt like it was something that only people in that business would understand and by that point in the book I should've been able to understand it, but I didn't.
It's a real problem that many of us face and I thought for the most part Evie handled it with strength and class. I loved the characters and the romance, and the relatability of being 33 and behind on life. Even though there are quite a bit of differences, it reminded me a lot of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, which I adored, and I think if you liked that one, you will like this one as well.
I had pretty high expectations going into this and I'm really happy to say that they were met. I can see myself re-reading this a lot in the future. I definitely recommend this one to Romance fans! You then have 24 hours to decide if you want to connect.
