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

A sexy, compulsively readable romantic comedy that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love, Dating You/Hating You by New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren is the story of what two high-powered agents will—and won’t—do to get everything they ever wanted.

Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween 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 squash the fire.

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 thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it?

Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human? Whether these two Hollywood love/hatebirds get the storybook Hollywood ending, or just a dramedy of epic proportions, you get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, hilarious story of romance in the modern world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plenty of chemistry and steam! Oh my goodness, Dating You / Hating You was incredibly entertaining, witty, whimsical and wickedly sexy! I had no idea what this book was about but wish I had read it much sooner. This is a window into the male dominated show-biz life where women are often downplayed and incredibly tolerant of sexism but portrayed in a light manner which keeps the vibe upbeat. I laughed out loud so many times at the text messages and comical office antics. And it rings true when they say, ‘all is fair in love and war’. This story is fresh and sweet and dished up with a heavy side of girl power – a true modern romance!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light Easy Read You want a fun and light easy chick lit is a good one. This is my first book by Christina Lauren and I will definatly be reading more of their books. I love a good chick lit, especially the love/hate trop and this was sure one. It also touches the issue of the double standard between men and women in the workplace and how there is still not equality reached between the two genders yet. The reason I gave it only 3.5/5 stars was because this wasn't my all time favourite chick lit reads, but I still would highly recommend picking up this book for a great romance (love the main characters) and a nice relaxing time. Cannot wait to read more from these two authors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super fun with tons of girl power! This book is lots of fun while being very anti-patriarchy with a huge heaping of girl power. I love the hate to love trope SO much, and it was still really well done here, but for me the best parts of this book were the friendships, especially Evie’s female friendships. Overall it was a really fun lighthearted read while still having a lot to say about a very timely issue. It makes an interesting follow-up to The Hating Game. To be honest I loved The Hating Game more because I felt the chemistry and the characters were more fleshed out there, but I will admit that The Hating Game doesn’t quite allow Lucy the independence and agency that Evie has in Dating You / Hating You.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CLo in a different direction Very different from their other books, not bad just different. Love the humour and the banter between the two characters

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy Read A very easy read on a commute to work. Carter and Evie are classic CLo characters with their wit and banter! It's a much more mature read compared to their previous novels, but it's also as entertaining. It gives a deeper look into the sexist nature of Hollywood in general and I love how strong Evie was as a character and how she played the politics of the office without being a doormat. The steam factor isn't close to what the previous CLo books have as this is more career driven, but there's definitely still undeniable chemistry between the two characters. It was a good book that's easy to get into, but not compelling enough to finish in one sitting, but still absolutely worth the read on a lazy summer day.
