Hazel is boisterous and unapologetic, but there’s a disconnect between how “crazy” everyone seems to think she is and the way she is actually presented in this novel. Christina Lauren is the combined pen name of long-time writing partners/best friends Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings. Instead of adding non-romantic drama as a curveball near the end, we get really unnecessary romantic drama. I can't express how uplifting and enjoyable of an experience I had reading this hilarious romp, and I found the underlying message to be just as beautiful as the cover art is.

These authors could have just as easily said “he said a rude thing” or hell, even “he said a homophobic slur” without actually using the word. And I think this book does a really good job at showing you how most people are pretty negative about anyone being too loud, too weird, and too different than the standards society puts on us. Their friendship felt so real and it happened so naturally and it steadily grew into romance and it was just so CUTE and it made me so GIDDY to read them. Christina Lauren totally got my attention with this captivating read (in my ways than one, obviously)! So instead of giving me opinny on the story itself, I want to discuss the spicy scenes in this book.Now Hazel has a plan to get him out on the dating scene again by setting him up on blind dates to help him get over his ex. Josh even suggests that Hazel tie things up with someone else even knowing he's already in love with her. But now that Hazel is working with Josh’s sister, a new bond is formed; Josh and Hazel try to help each other out by setting up blind double dates, but the more time they spend together the more they realize that their assumptions about each other may have been wrong, and that their burgeoning friendship matters more than either ever expected it would. and then, and i don't think this is entirely CL's fault because it's hard for ANY author to do, but making the two character discover their feelings together felt rushed. Besides being, you know, drop dead gorgeous, he was kind, supportive, stable, loyal, and respectful.

I organized this by genre and release date, and I always preface my rounds-up by saying that I will definitely have more 2024 anticipated releases as the year continues and more books are announced ( I see you Fourth Wing 3 👀🤞🏻). There is a constant theme of family in this book, both from Hazel and Josh’s side, and I loved it so much. I really liked the storyline and how they were scheduling blind dates for each other at first and having fun with it.Or the time when she was dating one of his roommates, and Josh walked in while the two were using the couch, although not for relaxation. They both throw themselves back into the dating pool in the oddest of ways and the double dates soon turn into excuses just to hang out with a friend. Josh and Hazel’s relationship was definitely an adventure and I shipped them so hard from the start of their very awkward and hilarious encounters. wink* A little buttoned-up initially, Josh is more than just a pretty face; he's patient, kind, sensitive and also incredibly respectful. Honestly, the second I finished this book my first reaction was that I wanted to flip back to the beginning and reread it immediately.

She can’t help but say exactly what’s on her mind the second it pops up and boy does that get her into trouble. There are other emotional thematic elements discussed, so it's not just a goofy tale in total, but the overall vibe is kept light and upbeat. Thank you to Gallery books for letting me enjoy this romance novel that had me itching for more love of Christina Lauren. About the book: Josh is in a relationship with a woman who makes no effort to be a part of his life, a woman his family and friends dislike; the relationship has no future, as Josh is discovering.

Theirs is a love story riddled with enough comedic relief to inspire bouts of couch-shaking laughter, earning side-eye from drowsy felines and leading my husband to question, “are you all right over there? As somebody who is too concerned with what everyone else thinks, I really need some Hazel in my life and in my personality. Josh is so endearingly, consistently confused by her and I loved watching him fall in love with her antics. Josh/Jimin - Doctor, Korean (Yeah, named Jimin, smart marketing because BTS Armies are going to love him with their whole heart), and currently in a long distance relationship that isn’t working. The fact that that’s such a surprise to her is a little heartbreaking, but the impossibly sweet conclusion washes all the pain away.
