about

Most men can’t handle Hazel. But her best friend Josh isn’t most men. Don’t miss New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren’s new novel about two people who are definitely not dating…no matter how often they end up in bed together.

Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.

Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.

Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them...right?
Christina Lauren is the pen name used by two authors (Christina and Lauren) who have been writing together since 2009. Their erotic romances include Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, Beautiful Bitch, Beautiful Bombshell, Beautiful Player, and Beautiful Beginning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breezy, Fun, and Adorable This book was a pure joy to read, breezy, fun, and just so adorable. Hazel is everything I wish I was in life, willing to be her most crazy self, not conscious or ashamed of giving her passions and exuberance her all in public. In the most adorable, quirky quest for love I've read in a while, we meet Hazel and Josh, old acquaintances who through serendipity, end up making a pact to help each other find life partners (because they are clearly not destined for each other, right?). The book ooze sexiness, and I just could not put it down, it hooked me from the start (though it was a fast read, I think I was done in about 4-5 hours). Definitely give this off beat romance a go! A great way to clear out all the other icky stuff in your life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Manic Pixie Dream Girl Nonsense I fully respect that the point of romance novels and rom-coms is to suspend your disbelief for a fun two hours or so of fluff - but this book made me feel very stabby about Hazel's character even with those mental asterisks in place. She's the manic pixie dream girl that "serious boys" want to lighten up their lives.I wanted to take it all in jest, but it just gets to a point of feeling like a very affected personality trait. Also, the final instance that unites the couple is a knife to the eye for anyone that ***Spoiler*** has any belief in reproductive science.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review from This is the Story of My(Reading) Life Guys. I can't even. This is probably my favourite Christina Lauren book now. Josh and Hazel are so freakin' sweet and adorable and funny. Hazel is definitely the star of this one. She's her own person. Eccentric and funny and lovable. Josh is stable and loyal and your next book boyfriend. I love how Hazel inserted herself into Josh's life and that was it. They became BFF's. Josh and Hazel is the perfect heartwarming friends to more romcom. Like I literally finished it in a few hours with a huge smile on my face. And decided it need an instant reread. That's like the best compliment I can give a book; it needed to be read again... and again...and again.
