All’s fair in love and work. The first standalone romance by New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard) is a sexy, compulsively readable romantic comedy that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love.
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.
Evelyn Abbey is doing her best to juggle adulthood and a career. As a talent agent in Los Angeles, she knows better than most of how difficult it is to find someone to really relate to. But just leave it to her insane – yet loveable – circle of friends to set her up with the perfect guy.
When her firm unexpectedly merges with his, there may not be room for the both of them. Desire and rivalry make strange bed fellows and it’s only a matter of time before one of them breaks.
“Hi.” I hold out my hand. “I’m Evie.”
Carter Aaron left the East Coast for LA to further his career. If he wanted to be the best, he had to move to the City of Angels to do it.
Meeting Evie when he did was both a blessing and a curse. The chemistry between them is unlike anything he’s ever known and now it seems to have ended before it even began.
The heart is a treacherous thing. And between the two of them, they are about to give the phrase “Love your enemy” a whole new meaning.
“Okay, great,” he says absently, and I know we could have said, We’re doing pretty shitty, Brad. You’ve put us both on edge. A week ago we were cruising down the road toward a stellar bang, but now we’re trying to seek out each other’s weaknesses and exploit them, and he would have had the same reaction. Brad really is a dick. I’m glad Evie gave him that dog-food bar.
