Most men can’t handle Hazel. But her best friend Josh isn’t most men. Don’t miss New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren’s new novel about two people who are definitely not dating...no matter how often they end up in bed together.
Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.
Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them...right?
I laughed at all the right places just as I smiled and swooned at others. The seamless flow that is Christina Lauren always blows me away.
It’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s cute, it’s sexy, and it’s everything that’s right with a Christina Lauren book. Josh and Hazel balance each other out in this game we call life. Hazel is the perfect character. Her quirky sense of style, thoughts on life, and love make her one of my all-time favorite heroines. Josh was just as great with his down to earth attitude. He centered Hazel in such a way that brought out the best both her and him. Opposites do attract.
I have yet to meet a Christina Lauren Book I didn’t like. They create storylines that grab you and take you along for the ride. Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating is a must. Their epic adventures are priceless.
