For Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman, executive assistants to the CEOs of newly merged Bexley-Gamin Publishing, it's hate-at-first-sight. So begins a series of daily passive-aggressive maneuvers, including the staring game, the mirror game, and the HR game, each played with the intensity of the Hunger Games. Their mutual antipathy grows when a new executive position opens at Bexley-Gamin, and both their bosses put their names up for the promotion. Then, the high-stakes games begin! After another 60-hour work week, Lucy logs off her computer and hops on the elevator to head home, as does Joshua. When Joshua hits the emergency button and stops the ride, Lucy is certain her nemesis is going to kill her. Instead, he plants a kiss on her, and Lucy begins to wonder if she really does hate Joshua after all, or if this is yet another game. -- adapted from Kirkus Reviews.

Summary / Annotation
Hate to Love You submitted by sdunav on June 17, 2017, 9:50am Insightful, funny, compelling office romance set in a publishing company. Needs a better cover.
Wasn't for me. submitted by AGAPHD on June 15, 2020, 9:40pm I get this is escapist romance...but does anyone actually behave like this? I had a hard time overcoming the childish, nonsensical behavior of these two. It had some fun moments, but overall wasn't for me.
Engaging submitted by Princess Cimorene on July 21, 2020, 2:06am I don't read much romance, but I found this book very fun and refreshing. The sexual tension was great, the protagonist was likable, and the male lead was different from a lot of other ones in romance novels. It was also pretty well-written.
Good. Overhyped? submitted by GwenC on July 31, 2021, 10:41pm This book was good besides the fact that the main character mentioned her height every five seconds. I went in with very high expectations because of Tik Tok and they weren't reallllly met? There are better enemies to lovers but I did enjoy this one.
