When Mattie Johns’ ex left her and took most of the clients of her recruitment business, he put her in real financial trouble. Mattie works hard to get things back on an even keel, but unfortunately, it just doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Not without a miracle.
So when a TV executive-type comes along, offering Mattie the chance to be on a dating show with prize money of £200,000, she can’t refuse. She has no interest in the dating itself, as she’s off men for good, but the money would solve all of her problems. That’s what she believes, anyway, until she discovers that the men she’ll be dating are four of her exes. Things instantly get more complicated, with some of those exes bent on revenge, others with different end games, and a TV producer who’s determined she won’t make it to the end of the contract period, therefore losing her all the cash and leaving her with nothing.
It’s Mattie Johns vs. the world — or at least that’s how it feels to her. Can anything else possibly go wrong? Will she achieve her goals, or is her business set to die a death, along with her love life? There’s only one way to find out…
I’m a big fan of Talli Roland’s books. The storylines are unique and funny; her writing style engaging and easy to read; and her characters very real. All of the previous things also apply to The Hating Game. It’s a really fun, page-turner of a read, with lots of twists and turns that will leave you wondering what on Earth is going to happen next. The ending is a nice satisfying one, too. So if you enjoy a good chick-lit/romantic-comedy style novel, then you should definitely check out The Hating Game, and Talli Roland in general.Powered by Sidelines
