Book Review: Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren





Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published:  September 4, 2018
Publisher: Gallery Books

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?

Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren is a story about two people in denial about their feelings. Well, maybe not in the beginning, but definitely as their friendship grows. And as it grows, things get a little steamy. They are adorable and so much fun. I loved Hazel. I want her as a friend. We all need a Hazel in our lives. Josh and Hazel just seem to fit. She adds a little crazy to his calm, and he evens out her edges. They bring out the best in each other, and they accept each other. This was a beautiful and quirky friends-to-more story.
