My Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Every Christina Lauren book I read, I think I like better than the last. I’ve only just come into reading this author, or rather these authors writing under one pen name, when I first discovered My Favorite Half-Night Stand, and I love the characters, the settings, the romance, and the friendships in each book since.
For Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating, the characters had one thing in spades: personality! Hazel was a quirky yet unapologetic woman, and she knew that it would take a special man to handle her long-term. Josh is a Korean male who, to me, felt like he oozed charm and masculine sensitivity in a way that another author might not have done as well as was done for him in this story. He was a catch!
The slow burn was just too, too good in this book, and the chemistry between these two was just too fun. I absolutely adored these characters and this story, and I cannot wait to read more from the Christina Lauren files. Refreshing!
