From Talli's website:
When man-eater Mattie Johns agrees to star on a dating game show to save her ailing recruitment business, she's confident she'll sail through to the end without letting down the perma-guard she's perfected from years of her love 'em and leave 'em dating strategy.
After all, what can go wrong with dating a few losers and hanging out long enough to pick up a juicy £200,000 prize? Plenty, Mattie discovers, when it's revealed that the contestants are four of her very unhappy exes.
Can Mattie confront her past to get the prize money she so desperately needs, or will her exes finally wreak their long-awaited revenge? And what about the ambitious TV producer whose career depends on stopping her from making it to the end.
What I Liked:
I'll be totally honest here: I did NOT think THE HATING GAME would enter my list of favorite books. I don't tend to sympathize with man-hating women. But I bought the book the day it came out because the plot sounded interesting and well, I follow Talli's blog! So, of course, I had to show some support.
Dear readers, I LOVED this book. It was witty and fun from page one to the end. I completely sympathized with the MC because she didn't exactly fall into your stereotypical I-am-woman-therefore-must-be-worshiped-by-inherently-inferior-men man-hater. She was like a broken little girl who hid her weaknesses behind her faux pride. And she was wonderful!
Not to give away any spoilers, but the ending is MORE than satisfying. Only the most perfect little twists and conclusions can make me clap and giggle like a little girl. And, well, I might have done that with THE
What I Didn't Like:
In the spirit of fairness, I like to include this section in my reviews, but I can honestly say there wasn't a thing I didn't like about Talli's novel.
So, with all that in mind, I would give THE HATING GAME
