Synopsis: 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 will get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, raucous, and hilarious romance style at its finest.
*This audiobook was provided by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
I feel Evie's pain. While I never have dated someone I that I had to work with, I know the feeling of working in an competitive corporate world where the woman always gets undercut. I understand not wanting to argue with your boss and be deemed a complaining woman....seeing the guy get the edge, get the better customers, the better projects, having an unfair advantage just because he's in the good ole' boys club, not because he's better at this job.
The audiobook also had two narrators to express the male and female point of view, which really added another layer to enhancing the story. I deem this title "headphones optional". Even though there is relationship drama, the sexual parts are far in between and fairly mild in my opinion. As always the production value is excellent and it was easily accessible using the Simon and Schuster Audio website. Easy to download, transfer, and listen. I fully recommend listening to Dating You/Hating You on audiobook, it was really enjoyable.
I loved most that I literally laughed out loud at points. That doesn't happen to me very often, so I especially appreciate it when an author(s) can make that happen. If you enjoy adult contemporary romance give Dating You/ Hating You a listen. It's a fun, fast paced, and engaging story.
