Description

Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.

Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

                       2) A person’s undoing

                       3) Joshua Templeman

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

    Loved this book. Easy read. Couldn’t stop reading it because I needed to see what happened next. Josh and Lucy are like Ross and Rachel....the stuff that keeps you reading and wanting more. I was sad to get to the end.

    The tension is off-the-charts, the dialogue hilarious, and the story enrapturing. I’ve read and re-read this book at least four times. When’s the movie coming out??

    What a great read! Absolutely loved every second of it! I stayed up till 6am reading it when I first started. Simply could not put it down. The characters, Josh and Lucy, complete opposites, are so lovable it almost hurts. Their dynamic is so fun to read I wish the book was longer (or had a sequel!). I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a breathlessly exciting romance.
  • Great book!
