Christina Lauren books are usually a go-to read for when i’m in a slump. This was not that book. I just didn’t feel the fire from Evie and Carter.
It was cute.
I didn’t take a single note.
I almost immediately forgot about this book.
Evie and Carter find themselves fighting for the same position at her company after a merger. They are both so likeable that they don’t make for a great fight. It was set up similar to The Hating Game, but was nothing like that. Instead of enemies to lovers it ended up more like friends to kinda disliking a thing they did.
They do end up pulling pranks which were hilarious. Glitter-bombs in cars always give me a laugh. And the steam is on-point. This duo never hold back on the heat.
Their asshole boss I will not forget. That guy was a misogynistic piece of crap and needed to GO. I understand Carter’s hesitancy to speak up, but someone needed to. It was almost too much and super obvious that the guy was into shady dealings. We all need a villain though.
My problem was that I have loved so many Christina Lauren books, this one just missed the spot.
