About this ebook

"This is a delight." —Publishers Weekly

This arrangement is either exactly what they need--or a total disaster

Oscar is a grouch.

That’s a well-established fact among his tight-knit friend group, and they love him anyway.

Jack is an ass.

Jack, who’s always ready with a sly insult, who can’t have a conversation without arguing, and who Oscar may or may not have hooked up with on a strict no-commitment, one-time-only basis. Even if it was extremely hot.

Together, they’re a bickering, combative mess.

When Oscar is fired (answering phones is not for the anxiety-ridden), he somehow ends up working for Jack. Maybe while cleaning out Jack’s grandmother’s house they can stop fighting long enough to turn a one-night stand into a frenemies-with-benefits situation.

The house is an archaeological dig of love and dysfunction, and while Oscar thought he was prepared, he wasn’t. It’s impossible to delve so deeply into someone’s past without coming to understand them at least a little, but Oscar has boundaries for a reason—even if sometimes Jack makes him want to break them all down.

After all, hating Jack is less of a risk than loving him…

Carina Adores is home to romantic love stories where LGBTQ+ characters find their happily-ever-afters.

The Hate Project by Kris Ripper The Love Study #2 Adored this Carina Adores romance! It had me smiling, caring, chuckling, and hoping for the best for two rather prickly characters. I will say that the story grew on me and I was not enamored at all by the end of the first chapter BUT by the end of the second chapter I was invested and wanted to know what would happen. What I liked: * The slow build of the relationship * That the two men were not “easy” to love from the first moment you met them * The group of friends that go by a name that would be censored if I typed it in her…they are there for one another no matter what. * Being able to read and understand this book without having read book one in the series first * Stepping into a world that is not my own * Oscar: anxiety plagued, quirky, caring, organized, interesting, a person that as explained helped me understand better someone I know. * Jack: bright, cautious, caring, loves his grandmother, a person with potential that is tapped in this story. * That both characters became more and more real as I read, I was invested in them and their HEA was something I truly wanted them to achieve. * Evelyn: Jack’s grandmother is a character and oh so lovable! * The way the hoarding aspect of the story was handled * Finding out what “The Secret” was * All of it really except… What I didn’t like: * Having to say goodbye to the characters when the book ended… Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin-Carina Adores for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Almost this entire tale is told by Oscar. Since I started with book 2...maybe the first one and the last one will let us hear more from Jack. I don’t really see how anyone could possibly put ...
